Best Marvel Comics Villains

The Top Ten
1 Doctor Doom Doctor Doom is a Marvel comic book supervillain. His first appearance was in The Fantastic Four #5 (July 1962).

Loki was weak sauce until MCU came out, Dr Doom is the best villain ever even Darth Vader was inspired by him, he owns his own country, mastered technology and magic and became an enemy of the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, Iron Man, Dr Strange and everyone in the world. He stole powers from the most powerful beings in the universe like it's nothing.

There is no other villain that deserves the number one spot other than our very own Doctor Doom. He is a timeless favorite that everyone enjoys. Who doesn't like him

Loki is above Doom? What the hell! If I could vote for more than one Goblin and Venom would also get my votes.

He is my favorite marvel villain of all time. He knows some magic and single handingly handled both the avengers and fantastic four in the avengers T.V. show

2 Loki Loki Laufeyson, or Loki Odinson, is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is the adoptive brother and archenemy of Thor, and is known as the "God of Mischief". In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the character has been portrayed by Tom Hiddleston.

How is he not number one?! Loki is so cool and one of the most loved Marvel hero/villain. He's not only strong, but he's clever and quick-thinking. Also, he's funny. Like with the "Get help!" scene in Thor: Ragnarok, where Thor is holding Loki and saying "Get help! Get help! My brother is dying! Get help!" And then on the last get help, he THROWS Loki onto the guards.
Quick list of Thor's weapons that he likes and dislikes:
Mjolnir (his hammer): DISLIKE
Stormbreaker (his axe in Infinity War): DISLIKE
Lightning powers: DISLIKE
Loki: LIKE

I always related to Loki in the first movie, and am really disappointed that Odin didn't explain things to him and value Loki for who he was. Loki is a great character because he actually has struggles that we can clearly see. I wanted to see a Loki/Thor hug in the 3rd movie, but there were still some great brotherly moments. I don't condone all the live Loki has taken, but I blame Odin for a lot of the pain and anguish that he went through. At least Frigga was a good mother to him.

What really makes Loki so wonderful is 1: Tom Hiddleston, and 2: Loki is a character we can all relate to. We all know the feeling of being rejected, and trying so hard to be the best, only to be knocked down over and over again. At the same time, he really does have a soft heart that hardened over years of betrayal. You can tell he really is a sensitive soul after the way he mourned for Frigga. All in all, he's a really powerful Frost Giant with amazing capabilities.

Loki is the best Villain and my favorite marvel character along with Spider-man and Iron Man. I mean, unlike most villains, Loki is relateable and honestly I don't blame him for what he has done. All his life he was look down upon by the Asgardians,never really being given a fair chance. He was different. He didn't like brute force and going out and hunting. He preferred reading and magic and things like that. He was always just misunderstood and nobody took the time to ask what's wrong. I mean think about it. He gets mistreated by the Asgardians, even when his supposed to be a prince, they look down on him because his not all brute force, his brother treats him like crap-yes he does,before Thor was sent to earth, he was arrogrant and entitled-and his father tells him, yes Loki, you can be king, only to find out he couldn't. There was zero chance for him to be king. He finds out that he was the Asgardian's sworn enemy. Imagine what's that like. His whole life he hears how this ...more

3 Magneto Magneto is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

This was really hard for me I kept going back and forth between Magneto,Green Goblin, and Doctor Doom "And Spider-Mans my favorite character of all time so I was a little biases for the Goblin" But after thinking about it for awhile Magneto just came out on top. First of all he's as powerful as heck he can move the earth, pull down meteors from the sky, and not to mention he also has a army of mutants to back him up. But he's also relatable he just wants mutants to have better lives I mean sure he wants to murder people but he's a super villain that's what they do.

Magneto is just so cool. I mean, his helmet! Seriously! And how in the movies he's always switching sides, and I love how him and Mystique are, like, bffs. And how his relationship with Professor X is really complicated, that's just showing his character growth!

He has a holocaust themed background...He is a realist, a pragmatist and has high ideals for mutant kind at the same time..

Erik Lehnsherr just made me realise that good and evil are just perspective based words for useful and harmful...

He is the greatest villain of all villains, he is the master of magnetism also a great strategist and once a friend of professor X. simply the greatest villain and my favorite

4 Thanos Thanos is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character was created by Jim Starlin and Mike Friedrich. The character first appeared in Iron Man #55 and has been portrayed by actors Damion Poitier and Josh Brolin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He may not be the meanest or the most unpleasant personality wise, but thanos is pure evil incarnate. He killed half of EVERYONE in the universe using the infinty gauntlet, beat the devil himself into submission, worked as a space pirate, impregnated and abandoned many women, and then returned later to hunt down and murder his numerous children. He has slaughtered millions of his own people, caused a nuclear disaster on his home planet, killed his mother, and has killed more people than every other villain on this list combined.

The green goblin may be nasty, and venom is a cancerous monster, but Thanos stands among all as the physical harbinger of Death, something nobody else can claim. Thanos is number one.

Number five?! Thanos could kill all of the villains ahead of him and behind him with a snap of his fingers, LITERALLY. Magneto, dead, venom, dead, doom, dead, Loki, actually killed by thanos in the movie. Come on

He is so hard to beat without the Infinity Gaunlet and the Infinity Stones but when he got the stones he killed half the life in the galaxy and killed superheroes like Thor and Cyclops and a LOT MORE!

With the Infinity Gauntlet in his grasp, he is able to decimate the Galaxy. It can even destroy the "Earth's Mightiest Heroes".

5 Venom

The BEST Marvel Comics villain. I understand why Loki is higher, but Venom definitely deserves his spot at #2.

Venom is only cool because he gets the best marvel superhero. Otherwise he is just a black goop.

Venom is the coolest villain. He has the same powers as Spiderman. And Spiderman is the best Superhero

He is awesome and will kill anyone in his path.

6 Green Goblin (Norman Osborn) The Green Goblin is the alias of several fictional supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, mostly those starring Spider-Man. The character first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #14, and since then he has become one of the characters most famous villains. He was the main antagonist in the 2002 movie Spider-Man, in which he was portrayed by William Dafoe.

Several reasons he's number 1 material. First Harry's father second killed his first girlfriend. Third got his girlfriend pregnant. Fourth nearly killed him.5th he's a bad ass.

Green Goblin should be #2, he killed Spider-Man's first girlfriend, Gwen Stacy.

7 Carnage Carnage (Cletus Kassidy) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as an enemy of Spider-Man. He appeared for the first time in The Amazing Spider-Man #361.

Best villain for various reasons. First and foremost, because he's an actual villain and not an anti-hero. Additionally, he holds no sentimental attachments but rather, a strong feral mind-scape and philosophy of spreading chaos and brutality. His sheer ferocious behavior coupled with his mental psychological warfare make him the Joker of the Spider-Man universe. Furthermore, he's more sinister and cunning than meets the eye. When a psycho-analysis of his mind is attempted in "Mind Bomb," he portrays how he sees the world, a sight of grisly yet honest reality. And this perception kills the examiner. By far the most powerfully compelling and dramatically captivating villain. If all that isn't enough, he's got a fundamentally awesome design and fighting maneuvers.

I love venom, but Carnage is an even more insane version of Venom!
He is awesome. I hope he gets into a film soon.

Carnage for the win

Carnage is the goat

8 Ultron Ultron is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is most recognized as a foe of the Avengers, and has a quasi-familial relationship with several of their members, especially his creator Hank Pym. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by James Spader.

I love how he is so powerful yet he talks so casually it is also cool how he half created a LIVING ORGANISM he is so cool but deserves a higher rank you know?

"I had strings but now I'm free... There are no strings on me..."
I just LOVE Ultron. He's such a cool character, and it's so interesting how he was made to be a peacekeeping program meant to help the Avengers (I literally quoted Ultron there) and then he turned bad, it was

Completely uninteresting and cliche and a ripoff of brainiac from DC. Ultron is one of the many obvious examples of why DC has better villains than marvel.

Let's see here-indestructible, always returns, several near successful attempts on the earth, created my second favorite hero, has the duribility and firepower to annihilate the ff, the avengers, and the x men, oh man, I love kang, but upfront rules.

9 Galactus Galactus is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Formerly a mortal man, Galactus is a cosmic entity who originally consumed planets to sustain his life force, and serves a functional role in the upkeep of the primary Marvel continuity.

Did you see what happened when he fought Thanos? Thanos was literally begging for his life! Ugh! Number ten? What a disgrace! He deserves to be number one! Herald of Galactus right here!

Very powerful the most powered character in all of comic books.

As far as ability goes, galactus is the best.

He can eat planets there a reason to fear.

10 Red Skull The Red Skull is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

Because, he is technically speaking, the first super villain in the MCU, besides he makes a cameo in infinity war, whats not to love? Especially considering his roots were based on a real life bad guy.

Everyone hates this guy, Captain America, the Avengers, Magneto and even the Joker in a marvel/dc crossover, he's evil incarnate, even more so than edgy boi Carnage.

Red skull is the first villain of history and yet is still alive in the present.

The actor for this guy plays an elf ( a good one ) in the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. He plays Elrond.

The Contenders
11 Mysterio Mysterio is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. He is most often depicted as an enemy of Spider-Man. He made his debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #13. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he is portrayed by Jake Gyllenhaal.

Impressive and sneaky

We all love the blob

He can at least be top 3 cause he can kill loki doom venom goblin by illusions

12 Doctor Octopus Doctor Octopus, also known as Doc Ock, Doc Octopus, and the Superior Spider-Man, is a fictional character, a supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #3. In Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man: No Way Home, he was portrayed by Alfred Molina.

Doc Ock is fantastic and the way Alfred Molina played him is the best part of Spider-Man 2.

13 Apocalypse Apocalypse, also known as En Sabah Nur, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

The worst photo ever

14 Lizard

The best villain of all time!

The lizard is awesome

15 Mystique Mystique is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with the X-Men.

She was a cool villain to see in both comics and movies. The way she's always swithing sides and plays by her own rules is freakin cool.

Mystique is sexy and knows how to get through any situation. I mean she's got skills like Black Widow of the Avengers

Why is she not in the top five? At least.

She's cool actually

16 Dormammu

Dormammu! I've come to bargain!

Dormammu, I've come to bargain!

Dormammu, I've come to bargain...

His powers include self-healing and super strength. He is regarded as one of the funniest characters in comics due to his tendency to break the fourth wall.

Dead pool is actually an anti-hero. I don't know why he is on this list.

Awesome how he notices that he is a comic book character!

For everyone wondering why Deadpool is on here, he was originally a villain in the first couple of comics he was in

What dead pool? What idiot added him
