Villain Overview

It's tragic when people can't accept the help they so badly need. When that happens, well, another kind of intervention is called for.
~ Margeaux Needler vowing to get rid of the Addamses and destroy their house.
Listen, you lemmings! This is my town! You are nothing but a bunch of extras! We are going to march down that hill and do a live show! I expect you to convince those brainless peons out there in the audience that this the perfect place to buy a house, or none of you will be living here much longer! DO YOU HEAR ME!?
~ Margeaux showing her true colors towards everyone

Margaux Needler is the main antagonist of the 2019 computer-animated film The Addams Family. She is the deluded and insane mother of Parker Needler, and the archenemy of the Addams Family.

She was voiced by Allison Janney, who also played Gladys Sharp in Over the Hedge, Ms. Grunion in Mr. Peabody & Sherman, and who currently plays Bonnie Plunkett on the CBS sitcom Mom.

Personality

Margaux is a deluded and insane reality home developer who prefers uniformity and dislikes anything different.

History

Margaux Needler is the mother of Parker Needler and a reality TV host, who is building a perfect planned community called "Assimilation". When she discovers the Addams family's household, she becomes determined to rid the town of it when the family refuses to change. When her daughter, Parker, meets Wednesday Addams, a member of the Addams Family, in the school and changes her appearance into a Gothic appearance, Margaux is shocked and almost immediately faints upon realizing that Parker did the change of appearance by herself.

Unknown to most of the town, including her daughter, Margaux Needler has a secret lair beneath her crafting room, which was later discovered by Parker and Wednesday when they were looking for Parker's phone. However, Margaux catches the two girls and locks them up in the attic.

Then, via social media, she makes an angry mob of civilians who attack the Addams Family's mansion. However, she is defeated by Wednesday, Parker and the rest of the Addams Family, and as Margaux tries to take control once more, her treachery is revealed to the people, as Wednesday and Parker states that everyone is weird in their own unique way and revealed that Margaux has been spying on everyone by putting hidden cameras in their houses. Due to Parker live streaming her mom's rant, Margaux's agent Glenn forwards a message from the network stating that they're canceling her show for her crimes. Uncle Fester comes up with a compromise. The town realizes the error of their ways and helps rebuild the mansion.

After her defeat, Margaux becomes partners with Fester in selling homes to the other Addams Family relatives. One relative modifies their house with an interior typhoon.

Trivia

  • Despite being guilty of numerous crimes such as using other peoples identities online, illegally putting cameras in houses without concern for privacy, child neglect, destruction of private property and even attempted murder, Margaux was not arrested.
  • Marguax is unaware of the fact that she is insane (though the Addams are quick to pick up on the fact that she is deranged).
  • As the Addams lived in their home long before she ever built Assimilation, Margaux actually has no legal right to do anything about how they live (as it’s not part of her town). At most, she can only ever forbid them from entering the town.
  • It is unknown what has happened to Marguax’s husband, but it is possible he is still alive, because she and Parker’s father are implied to have been divorced; Parker briefly states to Wednesday that she should have picked to live with her dad after learning that Margaux has a lair and a jail.
  • She is the third female main antagonist in an Addams Family movie, the other two being Abigail Craven and Debbie Jellinsky.
    • However, unlike them, she actually sees the error of her ways and accepts the Addamses for who they are.
