If artists like Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Iggy Azalea are the heroes of conventional rock and pop radio, the bands that comprise the lineup of this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest— Slayer, King Diamond, Hellyeah, The Devil Wears Prada, Whitechapel, Sworn In and more—are its unabashed villains. So when it comes to the topic of supervillains, who better to talk to than these malevolent Mayhem-ers?

Below, read an excerpt from the issue’s cover story, written by Senior Writer Jon Wiederhorn. In this section, King Diamond discusses what superpower he would want, arch nemesis, his kryptonite, and more.

The next issue of Revolver will hit newsstands on May 26 and is available for purchase online right now. You can view the cover below, which was illustrated by DC Comics’ Jae Lee.

REVOLVER What would your superpower be if you were a supervillain?
KING DIAMOND Evil-eye mind control. As soon as you looked at me I would have full control over you. And I would use that power to make all the super- heroes go to war. It would be fantastic to see Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk and all those guys systematically kill each other.

Who would be your arch nemesis?
People who try to censor art or music. In the ’80s there was the PMRC . They wanted any music with lyrics they considered offensive to be censored or stickered. They were trying to hurt Mercyful Fate. They would say what they thought the songs were about, and I would go, “What??! That sounds totally perverted! Is that what you think we wrote the song about? You’re the perverted one!”

What would be your kryptonite?
If anyone hurt children or animals in any way, that would really upset me. It might stop me in my tracks for a minute, but then you would die like no one has ever died. I might not even kill you. I might leave you like the guy in Metallica’s “One” video—forever alive but unable to do anything.

Who would play your evil character in a movie?
Johnny Depp. He’s an amazing actor. I love the way he can come across as a convincing character whether it’s some guy that gets messed up with guns or whether he’s on a pirate ship looking absolutely fantastic.

Watch a new trailer for Black Mass, the Whitey Bulger crime drama starring Johnny Depp

Watch a new trailer for Black Mass, the Whitey Bulger crime drama starring Johnny Depp

Warner Bros. has premiered a new trailer for Black Mass, its forthcoming Whitey Bulger biopic starring Johnny Depp. Watch it below.

Black Mass tells the story of Bulger’s tumultuous life in crime, specifically how he became Boston’s most notorious gangster while also shadowing as an FBI informant against the Italian Mafia. As director Scott Cooper (Crazyheart) told Entertainment Weekly, “He could be charming. He could be ruthless. He was like a cobra — you never knew where he could strike.”

The film also stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Dakota Johnson, Kevin Bacon, Joel Edgerton, Adam Scott, Juno Temple, Corey Stoll, Peter Sarsgaard, and Jesse Plemons. Cooper penned the screenplay, which was based on Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill’s 2001 novel, Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob. Shooting wrapped last August.

Looks for it in theaters beginning September 28th. You can revisit the film’s first trailer here.
