Splish splash I was drowning some land

whirlpoolThe newest installment on the wiki, How to cause a flood, is one close to my heart because it takes me back to the days when I was just starting out as a bad guy, making mischief by drowning towns and villages close to where I grew up, diverting rivers into inhabited valleys, that kind of thing. I can't say that at the time I was capable of causing mass loss of life or extreme devastation, but it did serve to cause a fair amount of property damage, rile the victims up enough to get them to beg for some measure of mercy, and leave a permanent scar on the landscape, all at a reasonable price. A wonderful way to get one's feet wet.

Ahem.

Floods grip the imagination of those who stand in their way. One moment simply standing on a city street, or camping in a desert ravine, the victim sees awe-inspiring flood waters crashing toward their position in an instant, seemingly out of nowhere. Floods can happen anywhere, anytime, if one is unlucky enough to be on the wrong side of a supervillain, and the psychological effect this can have can be just as effective as more exotic, unreliable, and costly technology.
