This Egyptian High Priest had it all. Power, wealth, and all the sandals a guy could want. However, he went a little too far when he got frisky with the Pharaoh's mistress, Anck-Su-Namun. Their love would be their undoing.
In The Mummy, their love was discovered by the Pharaoh, who was immediately killed by the lovers. Anck-Su-Namun sacrificed herself to save Imhotep, who vowed to resurrect her. He came close twice, only to be thwarted by the Pharaoh's guards and an English librarian and her swashbuckling sweetheart.
Later, in The Mummy Returns, he plans to defeat the Scorpion King to achieve unspeakable power. Resurrected by the reincarnation of his lover, his lust for power wouldn't be enough to save him a second time... or would this be the third time?
In the end, Imhotep is doubly powerful because of his devout following, but all the ways to defeat him seem to be written down in books already.
INTELLIGENCE - 6: He was shrewd but driven too much by his passions. Perhaps if he wasn't so whipped by Anck-Su-Namun...
POWER - 9: Beyond the grave, Imhotep had supernatural power and superhuman strength... when the Gods allowed it.
VILENESS - 7: Sucked his opponents dry of bodily fluids and used mummies and scarabs to off his enemies. Gross.
SWAY - 9: Had a religious following devoted to him to the death (and beyond) and was rarely intimidated by opponents.
PURITY - 7: He craved world domination but was constantly distracted by his love for Anck-Su-Namun.
PHYSICAL - 7: He could be a gross, gooey mummy or a sandstorm, or sometimes just completely smug.
