Everyone always talks about super heroes. Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, even Aquaman. A bunch of boring do-gooders. They would be nothing if they didn’t have their opposites. I mean, who would want to hear about a super hero who saves the world from kids who play their music too loud? Who would read about the hero who protects humanity by saving cats from trees? No, for a good super hero you need an even better super villain. You need a good challenge for things to be interesting. Here’s some of the best ones the world has seen so far.
Forget the stupid mask from the movie, where you could barely understand the guy. This super villain once actually broke Batman’s back. With his super intelligence he even found out Batman’s secret identity.
I promise it won’t be just Batman villains, but she’s a powerful seductress, with a special ability to turn super heroes against each other.
Being over 100 years old and blue isn’t easy. Luckily for this villain, she can change her appearance to look like pretty much anyone she wants, which makes it pretty easy for her to trick pretty much everyone at some point or other.
Most famous for killing the wife of the Flash, this super villain started out by traveling through time to become a super hero like the Flash. Matching his speed, but cracking under his own homicidal character, he ultimately turns to evil.
This guy doesn’t really have that cool a story, but he did manage to kill Superman. Or he would have, if super heroes could ever really die. So he put him in a coma at least.
This guy is basically reverse Spider-man. When a gooey liquid from outer space joins up with Spider-man first and hiss enemy Eddie Brock second, the result is the dark anti-Spider-man.
This super villain actually managed to steal Peter Parker’s body at some point. Spider-man was left hanging in Doc Ock’s dying body.
This is a dude who just loves to kill Daredevil’s girlfriends. When he impaled Elektra it was a complete shock to everyone reading, and it turned him into Daredevil’s archenemy forever.
Thor’s adopted brother shares some of his super powers. Unfortunately living in his brother’s shadow made him hate the cool super hero, so pretty much everything he does revolves around screwing him over.
I don’t really know why Superman wouldn’t just kill the little bald guy, but every time this guy tries to take over the world, he just kinda gets a friendly warning.
He used to be a BFF to professor Xavier. He’s not so much a villain, in a twisted way he’s just trying to protect his own people, and even defends human rights. At any cost.
The arch enemy of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knows ninjutsu and has his own army of mutants that he constantly sends to the world to wreak chaos.
And of course, everyone’s favorite crazy person. The Joker. He killed Batman’s parents, but that’s just the start of everything. He really just wants people to smile more.
Very powerful, completely emotionless and without a soul, he only wishes for one thing. The rise of the machines.
She’s kind of the opposite of Jean Grey. Virtually unstoppable, she uses her psychic powers for evil.
Another one of Batman’s enemies. Insane genius that just can’t resist leaving clues to who did it, for Batman.
The original Spider-Man super villain. He used a serum to gain super strength but lost his mind in the process.
The name says it all, he’s a guy made of sand who can shapeshift into huge monoliths and crush his victims. He did eventually change his ways though and is now helping Spider-man.
He’s is released from the blood of the deranged killer Cletus Kassidy. With his viciousness and sharp teeth, Carnage always delivers on his name.
He’s a living vampire that is a threat to both Spider-Man and Blade.
He’s an alien with green skin, always trying to get to Superman. His biggest crime was shrinking an entire city from Superman’s home planet Krypton.
He’s Captain America’s greatest enemy. The former soldier under Hitler has a red skull instead of a face after taking a serum. He’s also the guy who killed Peter Parker’s parents.
Harvey Dent used to be a law attorney, but after a criminal burned half of his face with acid, he decided that there was no real justice, so he decides everything based on the flip of a coin.
He’s a mutant with God like powers, whose only threat is the future grand child of Cyclops.
Vince van Doom is the villain who is constantly fighting the fantastic four, but he has also fought most of the superheroes of the Marvel world.
He’s a Kryptonian who uses his power to pose a threat to Superman.
Judge Dredd’s enemy uses his undead police to battle all life, as only the living commit crimes.
The Saint of Killers
He’s a badass from the Preacher comic books, who actually killed both the Devil and God so he could sit on the Throne of Heaven.
A god who has killed his own mother and only fears Doomsday.
He’s pretty much eternal. But basically he’s just hungry, so he destroys worlds.
Ra’s Al Ghul
He has beaten the entire Justice League, but he’s basically just trying to improve Earth.
Not a villain in the strictest sense, she’s usually on the darker side of the line. She’s also the closest Batman ever came to true love.
He is responsible for the Third World War, clashing with a lot of superheroes along the way.
He’s Charles Xavier’s step brother who has clashed with the X-Men, the Hulk, Thor and Spider-Man.
She’s Joker’s number two. Not the toughest or the most evil, but way up there when she turns on the crazy.
He’s kind of a romantic. For love, he was going to destroy all the life in the universe.
This high class society reject turned to life of crime not because he was crazy but simply because he was good at it.
Some scientists had the bright idea of giving a Russian soldier/serial killer/child rapist retractable carbonadium (a more malleable form of adamantium) tentacles instead of his less useful arms. Think Captain America but the opposite.
An enemy of Spider-Man, he gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning while working on a power line.
Quentin Beck aka Mysterio made it his life goal to piss off Spider-Man, and he’s done a good job of it
