What I meant was, when ordinary people, and ordinary looking people, have a reliable means of defending themselves most of the jerks who only do things because they can get away with it back off. It’s not that everyone is a bit villainous, it’s that anyone can be prideful, vindictive, and worse yet, powerful. you just don’t go around provoking people like that. On a related note, being able to summon up and control water would be much more useful than fireballs, as fire needs flammability and oxygen and clever use of it may be able to make an explosion, whereas high pressure water can cut skin, break down rock (that was used for mining once), throw people or objects back with extreme force, reduce traction, knock peoples’ legs out from under them, or, if you are a cruel villainous person, drown them. It could also be used for drinking water which would reduce the number of things soldiers (or hikers) need to carry, especially in the desert.

Mainly I’d expect everyone to wind up turning earth into a wasteland like in Fallout.

The only interesting clear-cut ‘bad guy’ is either violently and beautifully insane in a fun to watch, not to be around sort of way, or a tragic victim of circumstances that you can relate to and feel sorry for.

Otherwise, a villain should just be doing what they feel is the right thing to do!

I believe it’s called mutually assured destruction when nukes are used this way.

Rather, I suspect the deal is closer to replacing Devil’s involvement – with Devil, Jr. 🙂
