The seven worst wingmen in literature

At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog Becky Ferreira tagged seven of the worst wingmen in literature, including:
Iago of Shakespeare’s “Othello”

If your supposed BFF is secretly plotting an epic downward spiral tailored just for you, it’s probably time to dump him. Iago hates Othello’s guts, but instead of being a man about it, he gaslights his master into believing his wife is unfaithful. Iago is such a butthead that he can’t even own up to his own treachery, simply saying, “Demand me nothing” as his defense. Watch out for this slippery schemer; he is nothing but trouble.
Read about another awful wingman on the list.
