Alias: The Shape, the Boogeyman
Type: Natural (maybe Mystical)
Location: Haunted home/Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of an average human.
Summary: It's often considered over-generalizing when one says that you're just born evil. But how can you explain the psychotic rampage of this one man?! Before Vorhees, there was this implacable murderer.
History: Michael Myers demonstrated a murderous mind at a very young age, killing his older sister on Halloween night at age 6. After escaping the asylum fifteen years later, he stalks his old neighborhood, hoping to kill anyone who gets in his way.
Notable Kills: Several, but his best was when he dressed up like a ghost in shades to strangle someone with a telephone cord.
Final Fate: Michael...well, either he went up in flames in the hospital he grew up in, he got beaten within an inch of his life by a pipe, or he wakes up in a morgue after getting electrocuted. These continuities are confusing, but the general consensus is that he rarely lets critical injuries slow him down for long.
Powers/Abilities: Seems to have a major healing factor for when things get hairy.
Weakness: Anything conventional...for a while.
Scariness Factor: 4.5-There is nothing sympathetic about Michael. He is pure stoic evil seeking out victims simply because he can. That creepy mask and his code of silence will surely make you want to bolt the doors forever.
Trivia: -While the filmmakers have been ambiguous about Michael's true nature, some say that he's actually cursed. Cursed with immorality, with enemies? We don't know.
-Although some have compared the original film to the horrors of the loss of teenage innocence, director John Carpenter has denied all of this.
