Not that I have anything against any of the above entities, but only a select few of the books and movies with these preternatural sentient beings get it right.
They’d take out entire towns and demand sacrifices until a hero saved the day--usually, the god’s had to equip the champion, or the conqueror was part god in order to be able to conquer the typically enormous being with superior strength. Clash of the Titans
The good ones are okay, but what happens when they are under appreciated, or are just plain vicious. I.e. Superman Two, Megamind.
Never understand how they take over the world unless the stories include airborne infections. I mean, really, haven’t you made your zombie apocalypse plan? I know my husband has… Get out! Seek water. Heck, we know what to do when a hurricane is coming. Stock up on batteries, bread, and milk, and seal up the house. World War Z.
Only one vampire movie really got this one right, which leads up to my excerpt this week. Daybreakers. Have you seen it? Ugh! Gory, vicious, but it makes sense. In the second Twilight book, they tried to explain how the vampire elders stopped this from happening, but I think Daybreakers got it right. If you have a being that craves humans, has superhuman strength, and is immortal, face it; we don’t stand a chance.

“We protect our own no matter what. Until there’s a rogue. As I said, we are mostly peaceful, but we do have our psychos, as humans do. The only problem is…when one of my kind is homicidal, they eat their victims.” She shuddered and he rushed to assure her. “Don’t get me wrong. We don’t crave humans. Humans don’t even smell like food. Believe me, if my kind really craved humans, the human race would have been extinct a long time ago.”
