|“|| Superman: You killed him.|
Zod: I did. And not a day goes by when it doesn't haunt me... but if I had to do it again, I would. I have a duty to my people, and I will not allow anyone to prevent me from carrying it out!
|~ General Zod explaining his amoral motivations to Superman|
These characters are amoral. That is to say they are unable to be truly judged by our concepts of right and wrong or happen to lack a moral sense thereby being unconcerned with notions of right and wrong. Almost all abstract and godlike entities fall under this category. On a non-cosmic scale, however, an example of an amoral villain would be a mindless machine (that runs on a program) a predatory animal (which is guided by instinct) or an individual who doesn't conform to the traditional archetypes of good or evil (such as Deadpool, who doesn't care what side he's on). These villains are usually hard to label as Complete Monsters, even they can become them if their actions are vile enough, they have no adequately tragic backstory, and they are aware that their actions are causing others pain and may take joy in it (e.g. Vladimir Makarov and Judge Margaret Holloway).
