    I’ve always thought Dr. Doom was creepy. His metal encasing leaves his deformities up to the imagination.

    I like Slyde, because I have a soft-spot for terrible villains, and he was always written so utterly incompetent, yet so unbelievably headstrong and confident at the same time. Instant favorite for me.

    Right now, my favorite villain is Scott Summers/Cyclops. He’s been forced into a corner, and everyone refuses to see that he is playing the only hand he has left to play. And that’s why (if the writer is good) it will end tragically.

    Mr Sinister has always been my favorite villain. He is a long game villain who just shows you a hint of what is coming to tease out what go terribly wrong in the future. He’s scary as all get out and just refuses to die.

    From some of my earliest memories of comics, I’ve loved Mysterio. Mysterio represents that brilliant dichotomy that you can only find in comics. On one hand, that big glass dome is kind of menacing and cool looking. On the other hand, when Spidey points out that it looks like a fishbowl, you can’t help but see it.

    Mysterio has these amazing, elaborate gadgets and illusions that are so grandiose and over the top, and despite being obviously brilliant and gifted, and able to do these amazing things, he’s a constant jobber villain for Spider-Man, because he’s a career super villain, and that’s just the way he rolls.

    It’s these goofy disconnects that make me love comics. I don’t want Mysterio to be all grim and gritty, but he still comes across just competent enough to make Spidey work for it. My vote goes to Quentin Beck.

    Favorite Marvel villain? Venom (Eddie Brock). I’ve always loved his ability to hide and “put on” his costume at will. That’s pretty sweet. Also, he has all of Spider-Man’s powers but none of the responsibility and Venom was rocking that WAY before the new Scarlet Spider coined it. He can websling, he can bite you in half, he can blend in to his surroundings. Face it! Venom is amazing. “We are going to chew you up! And spit. You. Out!”

    …This is dificult… my favourite villian…. hmmm…. said Carnage! I don’t know, he was the most terrifyc and dreadfull villian that i can remember back in the 90′

    My favorite villain would have to be Carnage. Giving myself out as a major fan from the 90’s, but Maximum Carnage was just wicked; looking forward to the Event from Plot Points. I always considered Carnage just to be out and out chaos. He’s the kind of villain where you know there’s no real alternative besides putting him down. He will inevitably break out and to terrible consequences. I’ve always felt Carnage is pretty self-aware of this fact, as well as that his primary opposition won’t bring themselves to go that far.

    For me it has to be Dark Reign era Norman Osborn. I loved the way that he was two villains in the same body. The corrupt ruthless tyrant, narrowly working within society’s confines to place himself at the top of the heap, and a freaking psychopath who just wants to throw women off bridges, and ends up ruining everything.

    I always thought Thanos was a pretty awesome villain…he was a perfect foil to Captain Mar-Vell before they decided to kill him off…

    My favorite supervillains are always the ones who are just deliciously unrepentantly evil – like Carnage.

    My favorite super villain is the “Mole Man” just because he is the iconic baddie that you just want to punch in the face and feel good about yourself doing it. Aside from that I keep bringing him up and causing chaos playing him in my MHR game which is just hilarious since my players will now stop what they’re doing and run after him whenever he appears.

    Doctor Doom, perfect villain, one that in different circumstances, could’ve been a great hero.

    Sin/Red Skull. Right now I’ve been developing her for my Marvel Heroic campaign, and even without any super powers, she is a force to be reckoned with. With Zemo and Crossbones by her side there is no stopping her.

    Dr. Doom, to me he is/was just such an imposing figure. The mask, the robes everything was so cool.

    Another hard choice to pick just one. Keeping with my hero theme of the X-Men i would have to say magneto, who is dead in the books last i knew, but who knows now, lol.
    He has a vision and will let NOTHING stand in his way.

    My favourite villain is Doctor Octopus. He has a sad situation which he takes to the wrong ways. He is an intelligent villain who has class. He is a great coordinator and leader too.

    I’ve always been a pretty big fan of Loki. The nature of his character always makes him an unknown quantity; he can’t ever really be trusted.

    Dr. Doom. He is a great villain simply because he rules his own country. He is usually one step ahead of the heroes and can justify his actions as the ruler of a sovereign nation. He serves as a great foil for heroes and offers several different avenues at telling a great story. It can be a personal revenge story, altruistic story to help his people, involvement with other villains, take over the world, interest in helping the heroes only to turn on them, etc.

    My favorite Marvel villain is none other than Reed Richards. While he is mostly benevolent and on the side of right in the regular Marvel Universe, we learn in the Ultimate Comics continuum that the only thread keeping Reed from the path of super-villainy is his wife, Sue Storm.
    In that reality Sue declines Reed’s marriage proposal after a major tragedy. This causes Reed to turn away from his hero image and instead become a villain. This culminates with him becoming the Maker, where he creates his own advanced society and destroys a large portion of Eastern Europe, killing most of the populace. He easily out-thinks S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Ultimates and hands them many easy defeats and persuading the Hulk to join his cause.
    Take this level of villainy and understand that our Mr. Fantastic hinges on the brink of this every day. How much different would the Marvel universe be if Sue left Reed during Civil War and never came back? Reed already mapped out societal patterns and was able to predict upcoming disasters to divert them. Armed with this knowledge he could play puppet-master to the whole of their world, setting events in motion that played out to his personal ends, all the while maintaining his position as a super-hero until it was all too late to stop him.
