Harry Potter misunderstood Tom Riddle. He thought he was just some guy who had left behind a magic journal that was useful for potions and spells. But it turned out he was actually Lord Voldemort. He was misunderstood. Harry did not understand that he was evil.
cuz i feel like it
LOL, no psychopath is misunderstood they are just psychopaths.
He was evil.
Nope, he chose his path and clearly knew what the consequences of his actions were going to be.
According to the movies, no. He was angry and abusive of his magical powers right from the start. And creepy. Dumbledore should have put him out of his misery and vaporized him in his shelter room.
