I don't think the plot can be boiled down to simple hero/villain roles. The Man In Black broke the rules, and received a sort of punishment for that. Unfortunately, it was an eternal damnation sort of punishment, which is pretty disproportionate given his offense. But using his powers, he spent the millennia manipulating and killing people, so he's not an ...

Eloise Hawking was one of the Others. As such, she had been communicating with the MIB (at least during Ben Linus' reign as leader of the Others). The 'loophole' was part of MIB's years in the making plan to escape the island, and as such MIB would have provided Eloise/The Others with pieces of the plan that they needed to contribute to. The Others have ...

Keeping in mind what we now know (that the monster is The Man In Black), we can only speculate at what John actually saw. Each person who saw the smoke monster presumably saw more than just a large cloud of smoke - they saw some kind of vision in the monster (if memory serves, this is what happened with Mr. Eko for example). What John saw probably affected ...

It has been quite a while since I have watched Lost so what I say may have holes. I believe the island is a sort of Limbo. So one can argue that Jacob could have been a god or deity and the Man in Black could have been his opposite, or at least they may have represented this. Dont think in terms of the traditional religion but think of in terms of religion ...

The comments have been misleading. The show's creators have been very clear about the fact that they were not dead the whole time, only during the flash-sideways in season 6. The explanation given on the official podcast by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse for what Jack says is simply that he isn't an anthropologist, or archaeologist, so he misjudged the age ...

It is indeed never answered, but I think given the fact that Yemi (Mr. Eko's brother)'s body was in the Nigerian plane, and then disappeared, shows that MiB probably moved Christians body somewhere else in order to freak out Jack. One good question is why didn't he do that with Locke? Maybe he didn't have the opportunity, maybe he wanted to be discovered at ...

For me, it's clear that it was indeed MiB. We see the mysterious man in there when Ben and Locke make their first visit, along with a short shot of "the eye". The next time we see the cabin, we see Christian Shepard in there along with "the eye", this is in S4E1 when Hurley runs into the moving cabin. We know from S6E13 that MiB was taking the form of ...
