Plus in the end, after all that happened in Prometheus, still took an android who she clearly should know has a ethical issue, still lets him take her to gods doorstep. Putting all of humanity in jeopardy. I mean that is the pinnacle of selfishness.

She saved our a**es. If she had elected to go back to earth while david was still just a head, she'd have fixed him, gone into cryosleep, and he would've black goo'd us all. She'd been through hell, and after all that was seen, I'd want some answers to. If nothing else, she did it because she was curious, just like david, and there was nothing left for her back home. Charlie was dead. Her fault was that she allowed herself to be fooled by David enough to reassemble him and go into cryo.

Unless there's some unexplored angle like she was sick and he put her into cryo until they could reach paradise and its technology. It would be terrible to be awakened thinking that you're getting fixed, but instead you're getting filleted.

Oh right, totally forgot that she glued his head back on and didn't dump the goo in the first place. Yea she is also incompetent. Good catch. A real hero would have bought it on that rock. Which is why the only good characters in the damn movie were the two shit out of luck pilots.

Also I don't think David was interested in the engineers at all. If she had returned to Earth he wouldn't have had time to learn about their ways. Still she is the cause of the entire problem. When she thought she wouldn't be able to leave the planet everything was ok but David did suggest that he could get her off of it... still I don't think it was much effort on his part to convince her.

:P

The time line is confusing. It must have been more than a few month before Shaw went into hyper sleep but it is sold to us as being longer. Yet David said he had been stranded for 10 years or something. It's a mess.

Still the most selfish and by my definition of evil, is Elizabeth Shaw. No matter how well meaning or unintentional an evil act maybe, it is still evil and just reflects the underlining evil of human existence. Plus in the end, after all that happened in Prometheus, still took an android who she clearly should know has a ethical issue, still lets him take her to gods doorstep. Putting all of humanity in jeopardy. I mean that is the pinnacle of selfishness. Henceforth, she may not be Eric Cartman heights of evil but she is damn close to the coattails of Montgomery Burns. If we are to go with a cartoon scale here.

And that is what make a great villain. She's so villainous that most don't even notice it. She is the alien's queen.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Elizabeth Shaw was for psycho T. E. Lawrence David what Li Tobler was for Giger: a love interest and a model for his nightmarish art.
