Comic Books and Comic-Con : Who are your favorite villains from the Marvel and DC Universes?

Who are your favorite villains from the Marvel and DC Universes?

I think that the villains certainly don’t get enough love from these universes, when their antagonistic nature and powers is part of what makes the action sequences entertaining, especially if they are some form of the counter part of the superheroes. Here’s my lists:

My top Marvel villains:

1. Blackheart-In the comic books, his lethal touch, combined with his teleport ability is enough for him to nearly dismantle the Ghost Rider. His father is powerless against him, and you’ve got to admire his ambition and ruthlessness being one hell of a diabolical combination within the Marvel Universe, leading him to going to no ends to achieve a goal.

2. Doc Octopus-The backstory is what makes this villain relatable, with his malevolent passion to maintain power being the force that corrupts his mind and moral compass.

3. Venom-The version that we saw of him in Spider-Man 3 is nothing like what we saw in the comic books, since Venom is more of an anti-hero than an actual villain after he undergoes character development. He’s the opposite force of Spider-Man with the same powers, and the ability to shape shift, hence the name Venom.

Not yet, but I will once it comes onto Netflix. I’ll watch any movie with Tom Hardy in it, lol.

If it’s authentic to the comic books, then fuck yes, lol.

Speaking of Tom Hardy, have you ever seen Taboo? I quite liked it.

As far as the DC or Marvel, I don't know the difference. *waits for stones to be thrown*

If I watch a superhero movie, I never know which one it is and don't care, and I also don't read the comic books, so I view the movies on their own.

I haven’t watched Taboo, yet, but I plan to when I have a few days off so that I can sit down and watch it all in one sitting, lol. I’ve heard that it took a while for it to set sail, with the ratings originally sinking in the first few episodes. Would I need to watch those episodes to understand the rest of the series?

As far as DC or Marvel, I don’t know the difference

Marvel superheroes tend to be your average everyday intellects getting powers, sometimes mutated, that can get explained by science to some degree; whereas, DC superheroes tend to share a lot of resemblance with gods from mythology, often being sort of like the “take for granted” beings. Batman is the one who doesn’t have any inhuman superpowers, unless you count his transcendent martial arts skills, and his savant-like skills to engineer weapons.

Tom is wonderful in everything he's in.

I think I first started to pay attention to him after watching Inception. Loved him. Then I began watching more movies he was in, and I took notice.

I was a big fan of Taboo because I enjoyed the aesthetic, and the evolution of the story arc.
