According to absoultewrite.com the stages to the Villains Journey include:
The villain undergoes battles with the hero.The hero's symbolic death may emerge as a false victory for the villain, it makes him believe the hero is dead and the villain's plans are unstoppable.
But, What of the Villain?
Villains follow a journey of their own with striking similarities to the Hero's Journey.

The Villains Journey
Thanks to Professor Jones we all know about the typical hero story. Some of the stages to the Hero's Journey include:
Call to adventure
Refusal to call
Meeting with mentor
Tests, Allies, Enemies
Return with the elixir
In the end...
The hero always overcomes the obstacles and returns home transformed.
Both journeys have a set of stages that the hero, or in this case, villain must reach to conquer and succeed.
This stage focuses on how the villain is, or believes oneself to be superior, and thus capable of altering society to their whim.
The Villain's Journey
Despite the mastery, the villain is missing something; a ring, a mcguffin, or just absolute power. He/she then goes out to obtain said item or power.
Some piece of villainy remains; either the villain escaped alive or some residual evil lingers in the world. A villain whose deeds are completely erased by the end of the story is not very satisfying.
The villainous plans are ruined, and the world is saved from danger.
The villain denies the cultural mores of his society. This is when great crimes occur, for the villain is now defining his own ethics. Also known as the 'Moral Event Horizon' moment.
