Some critics of Monte Cristo have said that everything the count does is out of justice. Not only is the count just, but the book gives countless reasons and facts of why he is just. After he was sent to Chateau d’If by Villefort and Danglars, he decided to do his own justice since the man who is supposed to uphold it wouldn’t and didn’t. Count started with Caderousse portraying a priest and asking about the events leading up to Dantes imprisonment. After confirming what was told to him by the Abbe in prison he begins his vengeful quest.
Starting with Mondego, or Fernand, Dantes exposes what he has done in chapters 85-88. Mondego sold a girl into slavery. Count gave a paper to a rival paper publisher in order to expose this nasty act. This act ruins the name of Mondego and is pretty much shunned by society for what he did. He then shoots himself. This is only the start for the revenge of Dantes and everything gets worse from here.

Next up, Danglars. Count just plays around with the greedy passion of Danglars. The count opens various credit accounts in Danglars name and makes him lose a large amount of money. After the Count makes Danglars lose his wife, and more money, he tries to flee but the count had Luigi Vampa, an itailin bandit, kidnap him. While sparing his life, the Count had Vampa make Danglars spend all his money on food and wine while being held captive charging him $100,000 for a chicken for example.
