The Contenders

11 Fantomas - Fantomas

He may not be famous, but he is definitely one of the most, if not THE most, evil character in literature. Some things he did-just as a START:
-Substituted sulfuric acid for perfume in a department store
-Releases rats, with the plague, on an ocean liner
-Forces a victim to watch his own execution (he was put face-up on a guillotine)
-Has spies and henchmen everywhere in the city, carrying out his evil deeds
-Hung one of his own henchmen (who betrayed him) in a bell clapper, smashing him from side to side with blood and jewels EVERYWHERE
-Crashed a city bus, people and all, through a bank wall
-Murders a coach driver and puts the corpse on the coach itself
-Robs the Invalides dome (the French mint) EVERY NIGHT
-Poisons victims with bouquets
-Crashes trains and steamships
And did I mention he ALWAYS gets away with this? Get him in the top ten.
