If you want to be a hero, you can't be affraid of the effects progressing to that plateau might bring.
The hero knows that even though he might be alone at the top, the simple fact that he is on top can help so many lives, and that there is always a chance to mend with the people once loved, as long as your breathing.
The Villain is mad that he is alone, and tries to force anything he can to fill that lonely spot in his heart (if they have one left). Hence why villains try to force people to do things against their will.
