Hey everyone what is up. Not to long ago I listed my Top 10 Supervillains of all time and all of them were from Marvel and DC repectively. However I am goinf to get ride of that list today because I have come to the realization that I left a lot of people out of my top 10 list that should have gotten the spot light. So instead of combinding Marvel and DC, I am going to do a top 10 list of both Marvel and DC villains that I both really enjoy. So lets get this train rolling and see my Top 10 Marvel villains.
10. Baron Zemo II
A villain fulled by nothing, but revenge Helmut J. Zemo, the son of Baron Heinrich Zemo, followed in his father's footsteps to become a supervillain. How proud he must be. Beginning his career as an engineer, he was in a great rage when he heard the news that Captain America was coming out of retirement for one reason, Captain America sort of killed his father.
Cain Marko is a relatively straight-forward villain, but an iconic and important one nonetheless. He is a unstoppable ass kicker that is one of the X-Men's best villains. Sure he tried to be a hero which was a really dumb idea, but before he was one of the coolest bad guys of all time.
Born William Baker, Flint Marko is one of Spider-Man's biggest foes as the Sandman. As his name would imply, Sandman's body is formed with sand,
allowing him to manipulate his body into any shape and I love that type of power. He is such a classic villains that there is no way that you can screw him up ( Spider-Man 3)... Ummmm well atleast he is still good in the comics.
One of the biggest regrets in Hank Pym's life and he has a few. Ultron exists because of Pym's experiments with artificial life. The robot Pym first created could initially be called a success, since it did indeed achieve intelligent and sentience, but to a very dangerous degree, causing it to strike out at its creator and set out to become one of the Avengers greatest threats.
The X-Men have faced a lot of enemies who fear them simply for being
different, but most of these foes have some sort of humanity that can be understood, but not these guys. There Giant powerful
robots that are sent to hunt down ever mutant and capture them, most of them are innocent mutants. Sentinels are the most frightening symbol of hatred
against Mutants just because they are programed to.
He is Marvels Darkseid, but while not as much of a pimp as Darkseid he has a little more character. Sure he wants to take over the galaxy, but he fell in love with Death, you herd right people he fell in love with Death. So to prove his love he was going to destroy all the life in the universe. Its really silly, but he is still a beast.
4. Red Skull
This guy as classic of a villain as you can get without being a parody. First the Skull is a Nazi, thats bad enough, but the fact that he has done more and more evil deads that made him worse then a Nazi and infact created a all new group called Hydra . It's a simple way to categorize and create a villain, but it's effective and is the exact opposite to Captain America.
This guy is just cool. Bullseye is not subtle or emotion or anything. He's a
killer, through and through, with a very condiluted history that may or may not
be true given some stories being narrated by Bullseye himself. The only thing we really know is his name is Lester thats it and to be honest thats all I need to enjoy this character.
2. Doctor Doom
This guy is a beast in so many ways that its really hard to say all the awesome this character has. Besides his depth, characterization and legacy in the Marvel Universe weren't enough, Doom has one other accomplishment that few in the industry have managed, he's one of the inspirations for one of the most baddest dudes in world the one and only Darth Vader.
Lets take a good deep look at Wilson Fisk. He has no powers, he has no immense global influence when compared to some of his rivals on this list and he barely ranks as a high rank villain of some of the most powerful heroes. But the Kingpin of Crime is in many ways indicative of what makes Marvel characters so appealing. He's grounded, realistic and most of all, in some ways, you can understand what made this man and what drives him to this day.
Now Lets See the Top 10 DC Villains
10. Captain Cold
Leonard Start began his criminal career like most do, creating a weapon that can take down the Flash, aim it at the Flash, and see what happens. Well, what happened was said weapon, originally designed to cripple the Flash's super speed, accidentally wound up as a freeze gun that could freeze the Flash and the rest was history. He is power hungry, money hungry and just hungry for control.
Villains come in all shapes and sizes, Anti-Monitor comes in one, BIG AS SHIT!
Before playing a key role in the threat posed by Sinestro's Corps, his
unique brand of evil made a permanent mark on the DCU during the Crisis on Infinite Earths. Not only that, but he is one of the most powerful entities in the DCU and that addition is enough to make him one of the best villains ever.
Many people would say all Bane did was break Batman's back, but he has more to him. A hulking figure fueled by Venom, a drug pumped directly to his brain for all his hulking, super-strength needs, Bane seems like a feckless thug on the surface, but he is one of the smartest Batman villains. Before he when on to break Batman's back he destroyed the walls of Arkham, letting all the prisoners infect Gotham so that Batman would take time trying to get every criminal back in Arkham and when Batman was tired from fighting crime Bane attacked and beat him down.
People say that Superman's villains are not as good as some of the other superhero villain groups, I would disagree and I can argue my case with the help of this guy. His goal is to capture cities and assimilate knowledge in order to gain power. Part of its operating procedure was to destroy planets and galaxies in its wake to prevent that knowledge from spreading.Sure its one dimensional, but its the best kind of one dimensional goals and that is why I have him here.
6. Ra's Al Ghul
You'd expect an immortal, international terrorist to want many things,
but perfecting the Earth is the last thing that would be on your mind . However that's been Ra's Al
Ghul's goal during his many lifetimes. He tears down societies to have
them rebuilt in a more ideal fashion, bent on crafting his version of a
utopia. Out of all of Batman villains this guy has to be the most dangerous even compared to the Joker.
5. Lex Luthor
Like Joker he needs to be in a top ten list. What makes Lex such a great villain is because of one key thing. Threw his eyes he's not necessarily trying to rule the world; in his eyes he's saving it. Think about that for a second - Luthor is trying to save the world from the unwieldy, crushing rule of an alien from Krypton. This man craves to be the world's savior, yearns to have "his" people worship the ground he walks on and refuses to see that birthright seized by another. This is why he is such a good character.
4. The Joker
There was never any doubt in my minds the psychopathic Clown Prince of Crime would be on my list of the best villains. The Joker is the definition of a scene-stealing, deliciously wicked character, one that is quite possibly more interesting than some of the best villains. No matter what movie, tv show, comic book or whatever he would always be the best thing in it even if its shitty.
This is my favorite Batman villain. Dent is, in so many ways, the biggest failure of Batman's career, and is a constant reminder of the price that can be paid battling crime. Two-Face is a character that has been best served by time, with him becoming more interesting like that fact that he struggles between both "Dent" and "Two-Face" with his iconic coin that he has. He is just a really cool character.
2. Black Adam
In modern storylines, Adam is a magically powered citizen of Kahndaq, one who violently removes a dictator from power and seizes control of his country. Adam's dedication to his home and family is what has helped redefine the character, making him someone who does bad things, but with a moral code. Over time Adam's family grew, and his wife, Isis, began to make him more of a good man. Sadly rivaling interests sought to crush Kahndaq's influence in the world. These actions led to the death of Isis and her brother, Osiris which put Adam in a rage. When this happened he really showed off how amazingly powerful he is to the point that he started World War III and that it took the hero's of earth a week to take him down.
This is my favorite villain in comic book history. Darkseid's motivations are simple, but that good type of simple - conquer and control all life by unlocking the Anti-Life Equation.Though the storyline technically took the New God's life, it's hard to imagine the heroes of DC won't find themselves face to face with the ultimate embodiment of evil at some point down the road. The most appealing trait of Darkseid is his lack of interest in direct, physical confrontation.
