Re: McWeeny has a theory about this movie
I must grant McWeeny's point that Khan is just about the only Trek character, villain or otherwise, outside of the Enterprise crew that the average audience member out there is likely to recognize. Ergo, if you want to do a villain that is meaningful to the Star Trek universe and get the maximum mileage out of him, Khan makes the most sense from a purely practical point of view.
Yes. Simply put, like Batman, Khan is The Joker of the Star Trek universe.
