This is something that had caught my attention. You see, I spotted how some of the media had portrayed this guy someone corrupt. Here are where I saw Jobs being portrayed as a villain:

Franken Fran: (Chapter 46. Not going to link this one; it's gory and not for all ages!)

If you don't know, the first one portrayed him as a guy who is a megalomaniac, the second one portrays him as a money-guzzler who likes to waste money on unnecessary products (although this one is a parody of someone else more sinister) and the third one is not directly him but this character sells addictive products.

Anyway, I do not really think of him as a villain but someone who just happens to have found something that helps the people around the world, so you can say he's a good guy.

Are there any form of media that portrays him as a good guy? Please let me know this; those that I read was really unsettling.

Thanks for reading.

    Pixar certainly sees him as a good guy. As they should.

    If anyone's the villain here, it's Bill Gates. *runs*

    No. Apple is seen as a company that tries to control everything and he is their face.

    Every CEO of every big corporation is seen as a villan. This is nothing new.

    Why can't people hate on Bill Gates anymore? I mean, he's all alone out there,crying in his room because people aren't saying nasty things about him. Everyone has forgotten that he even exists. It's not fair.

    Stupids jobs. I hate jobs.
