    Possibility of various baddies going straight...

    We all know that Drakken and Shego apparently did so at the end of Graduation, but how likely do you think it is to stick, and how do you feel about the rest of Kim's Rogue's Gallery? As for my thoughts, I at least hope it does stick for Drakken and Shego. The only others I see reforming are maybe Frugal Lucre and maybe the Seniors, if the elder Senior finds something else to do with his time. I don't see that last bit happening, though.

    Well, it appears pretty canon that Mark and Bob actually did make Drakken and Shego get together at the end of "Graduation", although they admit that was a very last minute thing, so if you want to accept it on that level, it would work. And since he did technically "save the world", an act normally attributed to his arch-foe, he's rather caught in a spot. He can't really show his face among polite villain society anymore after an act like that. I think since the world has generally recognized his genius as such, he will be satisifed enough to consider changing his evil ways enough to not want to conquer the world any more. Shego has always had a soft spot for the blue guy, so she'll go along for the ride even if it isn't as much fun. (Of course, I would take off in a slightly different direction for those two characters in my 'Resolution' gallery.)

    As for the rest of the rogue's gallery, I don't see any of them changing their spots at all.

    Well, he kind of was managing it during the last scene of the series, but that is neither here nor there. He could always just play up the old clich that he just saved the world so it would still be around to conquer himself.

    Especially if Mr. Dr. P himself recognizes his genius. Oh, what an ego boost for Drakken that would be.

    She could always pull a Black Cat and just cause mayhem for the bad guys if she still needs an adrenaline boost now and then.

    All in all, there's so many ways the "Enemy Mine" can turn out in the end.

    I could possibly see SSS not being a villain anymore if he gets bored of the whole thing... or just finds a new hobby.

    Ah, I know! Team Possible could send SSS, his son and Bonnie to some broken down country, challenging SSS to colonize and tame the place. Yeah, that'd give SSS a nice new hobby.

    Agreed. All Drakken really wanted was to be recognized as a genius; it was the lack of said recognition (as well as the scorn of his peers) that made him drop out of college and pursue a life of crime and villainy. He only wanted to conquer the world as an ego-boost, making up for the recognition he craved but never got. Now that he's been acclaimed as a hero, Drakken no longer needs to take over since everybody now respects him.
    You know, it's funny; I can just imagine Drakken and Shego settling down together while he runs an appliance-repair shop (give him an opportunity to tinker with stuff while earning a living), now that his career as a villain is apparently over.
    As for the others, yeah, I agree with you there too. They're not about to change - not unless they either get zapped by the "Reverse Polarizer," or they undergo some drastic life-changing catastrophe resulting from their committing crimes (for example, someone ending up getting paralyzed from the waist or neck down - that sort of thing).
    Although this comment by TGM got me thinking:
    Ah, I know! Team Possible could send SSS, his son and Bonnie to some broken down country, challenging SSS to colonize and tame the place. Yeah, that'd give SSS a nice new hobby.
    Why do I get this image in my head of either Junior or Bonnie getting killed while they're down there, and SSS coming back after 15 years, vowing revenge on Team Possible? Does that sound familiar, or is it just me?

    This is KP, so none of our favorite characters, even villains, would be killed. Instead, inspired by TWD and a certain movie with the Roman numeral Eye Eye in its title, I imagine SSS, Junior, and Bonnie trapped in an underground cavern without luxuries. Triple S adjusts with ease, Junior blubbers over the absence of Le Goop and Bonnie, her fists clenched, shrieks:

    "Ron!

    "Ron!

    "RON!"

    The scene then shifts to BN:

    Kim: Did you hear something?

    Ron: Probably just the Ronster's stomach saying it needs another naco!

    I've pretty much imagined Drakken retiring from villainy, and finding something to keep himself occupied (hey, maybe he could get Hank Perkins to restart the cupcake biz!). As for Shego... possibly a "special consultant" job with GJ; training agents in fighting skills, and maybe taking on some black ops from time to time.

    As for the other villains... well, Junior's not much of one to start, and doesn't have the interest to stick with it anyway; Senior might find himself mentoring Bonnie (should she end up going over the edge from high school evil to full-blown evil). I don't see anyone else simply giving up the game, though.

    Don't forget the one truly evil villain: Hank Perkins. He has a law degree.

    Now, let's be nice; my sister's a lawyer....

    Now, regarding this comment from MrDrP:

    - Wouldn't she be more likely to shriek Kim's name than Ron's? She blames Kim for everything else - especially since it was Kim Bonnie shamed into helping her find a new boyfriend to take Brick's place.

    I have an absurd number of friends who are lawyers (it seems to be a common secondary career for military officers, not sure why), most of whom are universal in their contempt for lawyers. One came to so despise lawyers, in gerneral, she quit the law to rtach aerobics.
