So, on two of the ABC soaps, there are two characters – teenage girls as a matter of fact – who have been calling their father “evil” or “a monster”.

Yes, folks. I am talking about OLTL’s Dani (Kelley Missal) and GH’s Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth).

They both have daddy issues and I think it’s time that the title of “Most Evil Dad” was finally settled on between OLTL’s Todd Manning (Trevor St. John) and GH’s Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Let’s start with Todd.

Trevor St. John (ABC/Yolanda Perez)

He raped two people – Carol Swift and Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell). Then he tried to rape Marty again.

I think that’s pretty gruesome by itself.

But there’s more.

He killed two people, and kidnapped a few, too. He also set a bomb in the police station.

Then came his dastardly 2008-09 plot.

Todd had been keeping a presumed dead, amnesiac, Marty Saybrooke, at his house. He planned to steal his granddaughter, Hope, and skip town with Marty and Hope and start a new life with a new family.

Luckily, he was too late to steal the baby – Bess beat him to it….But that’s a whole other story!

Now, let’s travel over to Port Charles, where we visit the misdeeds of mobster Sonny Corinthos, shall we?

Maurice Benard as Sonny ABC/Adam Larkey

Sonny has killed three people by his own hand (that we know of). He put out hits on at least 18 people (yes, that’s really how many through the years). He has shot (not fatally) almost as many people. He even shot his own son recently! Let’s not mention the countless other mob related crimes.

Sonny’s mob activity is the reason that his son, Michael Corinthos III, spent a year in a coma!

So who is the worst person?

Well, Todd is a two time rapist, a kidnapper and a murderer

Sonny, on the other hand, is a mobster and a murderer.

So I’m extending this to you.

Comment on this and tell me who you think is the worst.

In my honest opinion, I find both of them to be awful people, but I have to say Sonny is worse, because at least Todd has served real jail time.

Sonny has a nack of getting away with it.

    They both have their pros and cons as far as their misdeeds go.

    But both Todd and Sonny at least have redeeming qualities.

    They both love their kids above all else and would never intentionally harm their children.

    Mitch Laurence, on the other hand, has NO redeeming qualities.

    Mitch holds the title of the evilest of the evil. No one beats him out.

    Alright – they are both pretty bad. Todd sold his own son (not knowing it was his son of course) and Sonny shot his own son (once again, not knowing) – Wow, did I mention I love soaps? They can get away with anything. Anywho – I’m going with Todd. At least Sonny shows remorse and people that “know him” think he is a good person. Todd is just plain awful – entertaining for sure.. but awful!

    Hi Kristine,
    I agree with you that they are both pretty bad. Both have done – and continue to do – really awful things…But they do keep us watching!

    If you know me you know my answer. There is no one on soaps worse than sonny. He is a selfish egotistical immoral killer. My feelings were always of abhorrence and now since he shot an unarmed policeman point blank in the chest I find him inhuman as well as a sniveling coward.
    He is self centered and the worst parent on soaps since he puts his needs ahead of the safety and peace of mind of his children. Even the cold blooded killer Jason Morgan will not put his son in danger and JM has been described as being brain dead and a robot and he has more real feelings for his son than sonny for his brood.
    He is despicable and dishonorable and deserves to be brought down by Dante and Jax. His 2 worst enemies.

    Hi Nanci,
    ITA about Sonny. I can’t stand the way he rationalizes the shooting by saying that if he knew Dante was his son that he wouldn’t have shot him….But the point is that he shouldn’t have shot an unarmed detective to begin with. I loved yesterday’s show, when Patrick Drake told Sonny as much.
    And I so hope that Dante and Jax bring Sonny down, but somehow I don’t think it will happen.
