Though this character’s lack of humanity might lend itself to a villain inferior Fi perspective, what ultimately damns him is that he cannot let go of his personal vision. He chases Rocket all over the galaxy, demanding access to his brain, even when other characters warm him of the futility of this—he just can’t let it go, in his hyper-fixation on the desired outcome that he wants. He has a Hitler-esque linear thought process that is wholly obsessed with “perfection” and a “higher calling,” but is relentlessly frustrated because Rocket is the only animal hybrid he ever created with super intelligence. So Rocket must die, so he can study Rocket’s brain and reproduce his genius. Even after Rocket rips his face off for murdering his friends, this guy can’t give up and keeps chasing after him. Others beg him to give up and save the ship, and one of them even tries to shoot him, but he can’t give up on his vision even when everything is imploding around him—a failure of inferior Se to accept the reality of his situation and abandon his plans. He is a calculating scientist who wants to create utopia by meddling with animal DNA to create a superior species, but who remains distant from his creation and destroys the ones that disappoint him. He is fully absorbed in his own Fi, in that he is arrogant and only concerned with the outcome he desires, without having any ability to convince others to support his cause. He rules them through tyranny instead. He is factual, exact, and unsentimental, but also never emotionally accessible. And his callousness is what causes Rocket to turn on him (Rocket becoming aware that he’s going to be killed, and his friends thrown in the incinerator).

This guy’s entire deal is that he wants to make a society free of its imperfections; to create an advanced civilization in which no moral infractions occur—and he thinks that gives him the right to eradicate his own creations. Each time his new civilization descends into evil and/or sin, he destroys them and/or blows up the entire planet, and moves on to his next “new” creation. Defective creatures are killed and incinerated; he leads them on to believe they are important, but in reality has no desire of allowing anything “ugly” into his “perfect” world. This is intense idealism run amuck, the frustration of imperfection and a desire to create something “perfect” causing a villain to become cruel and evil simply because of his lack of humanitarianism. He sees it as something to “fix” rather than caring about it on an emotional level, and he sees himself as God – he says at one point that God didn’t show up, so he stepped in to take his place.
