Cult GIF-creator Joey DeAngelis of the Imperial Bedrooms blog introduces us to the ultimate HBIC—or Head Bitches In Charge, the Internet label affixed to the women in film and television who know how to take control and aren’t afraid to say or do whatever it takes.

Most of them just basically do whatever the eff they want to. They’re usually of high ranking—whether it be in a school, workplace, territory, or coven—and they don’t take shit from anybody. Screw with them, and they will break you (in one case, literally, in half). They have an infinite supply of sass that they are happy to throw directly in your face. We love to hate them nearly as much as we just plain adore them.
