The big stinker straps Bond to a slab, and positions a laser so that it will slice the super spy right down the middle.
Bond — I expect you to die. His scheme to devalue the gold in Fort Knox, so that his own stores would dramatically increase in worth, is well thought out, and came this close to working, too! Was there ever really any doubt who would claim the top spot? Everything about Blofeld is iconic, from his trademark pet white cat, through to his bald noggin, facial scar and preference for Mao suits. Evil in particular owing Blofeld a massive debt. And with evil schemes that range from the inspired to ludicrous, which all — low key effort in From Russia With Love notwithstanding — encompass a vast level of ambition not to mention nuclear warheads and super viruses , Blofeld truly sets the standard.
