I'm sure there were attractive and charismatic manipulative shits in fiction before Hannibal Lektor and the shower of people out of Game Of Thrones.

But this is wrongthink that denies the eternal now and insists that there may once have been a history, is it not? How loathsome of me to suggest such things...

I think, reading between the hyperbole, that Dogpoet wishes to point out that even in asking people to consider earlier examples of suave bastardry, the marysue.com website relies on fairly recent examples. Thus, they are hoisted by their own pedantry.

 

But it's worth using examples that the younger folk, stuck in "the now", will understand.

Sure, they could as easily have used the Goblin King, the Godfather, or Dracula, but I'm with Ade - using relatively (up to twenty years old) examples makes it easier for the readers to read. The Mary Sue isn't an academic journal.
