But yeah, I guess a Mary-Sue could be a villain if it happened for a very corny, clichéd and sappy goody two-shoesy reason. xD
Have you read "His Dark Materials" by Philip Pullman ? Mrs Coulter seems perfect to the children (including Lyra, at the beginning), and they all love her, though she's one of the most evil villains.
