2 Green Goblin Green Goblin 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 more.

The original villain

It should go without saying, which villain has truly broken Spider-Man down to the grim with the murder of Gwen, one of the best villains ever - iliekpiez

The green Goblin is without a doubt the greatest Spider-Man villain ever. He has every right to be known as Spider-Man's archenemy! Norman Osborn is extremely intelligent, strong and psychotic. His laugh is creepy enough to send shivers down your spine. He got the most personal attacks on Peter Parker than ANY of the villains. Doctor Octopus is Spider-Man's Penguin/Riddler and Venom is Spider-Man's Bane. The Green Goblin was the first to know about Spider-Man's true identity, had a one night stand with Gwen Stacy, getting her pregnant and then killing her after discovering he is not allowed to raise the kid, etc. He threatened Peter's Aunt May and he is always endlessly tormenting Spider-Man. He has even been able to go toe-to-toe against the Avengers! He is my number one favourite Marvel villain. - Daviddv0601

He is by far the strongest he kills Gwen Stacy nearly kills spider man and faces the earths mightiest heroes the avengers he really strong he can throw pumpkin bomba

3 Doctor Octopus 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.

Everyone says Venom is Spider-Man's greatest enemy, and, while he's awesome, I like Doctor Octopus better.
He has a scarier vibe than Venom, mainly due to his intelligence. The arms are also pretty scary also.
My personal favorite Spider-Man foe, he will always remain superior to all (I've always wanted to say that).

His arms are awesome

Dock ock is awesome and is super smart

8 limbs sounds awesome
I dunno what he's complaining about

4 Carnage 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.

Heck yeah! All the way! - Meg21

Super cool. My second favorite. - TriggeredKid

He's CARNAGE what more can I say? CARNAGE RULES

5 Lizard Lizard

He's a giant lizard with armor like scales, a regenerative healing factor, super strength, telepathy with everyone's inner lizard, and a tail capable of shattering concrete. How much cooler can you get?

He is ferrel and a mutanted ten pound reptile. He is also his techer and friend Dr. Curtis Conners. He was also in the latest spiderman movie Amazing Spiderman.

Probably one of the most sympathetic of Spiderman's villains.

6 Mysterio 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.

Is so strange

Vulture is my favorite movie villain while Mysterio is my favorite comic Book villain

Mysterio can dissolve spideys webbing and make multiples of himself so cool! Definitely one of the top ten.

Shiit what the hell is mysterio doing in no 6 he can destroy the avengers

7 Electro Electro Electro is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Maxwell "Max" Dillon, the first Electro, is an enemy of Spider-Man who gained the ability to control electricity after being struck by lightning while working on a power line.

The human dubstep machine!

So many boss moments in amazing spiderman 2

Mysterio is cool and all but Electro is my favourite villain

Electro can harness and control electricity and can fly, enough said.

8 Sandman Sandman The Sandman first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (Sept. 1963), created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko as an adversary of Spider-Man. The character returned in The Amazing Spider-Man #18 and #19, and was soon depicted in other comics, such as The Incredible Hulk and The Fantastic Four. more.

Sandman was the best part of Spider-Man 3.
Even though a lot of people were mad because he was Uncle Ben's killer in this universe, I actually liked it. It gave the character more depth, and Thomas Haden Church is just a great choice for Sandman.
If Sandman was Spider-Man 3's only villain, it would've been a great movie.

Dude, he's amorphous. If Venom tied him up in web, Sandman would escape. If Dr. Octopus tried to contain him with the arms, it would be impossible. The limits of Sandman have never been reached, and if you really think about it, its even hard to see how Spider-Man himself could beat him. Come on, think clearly.

Pretty cool

Sandman is cool, especially if he wants to play with his diggers and spade in a box or make castles - SuperMan2003

9 Kraven the Hunter Kraven the Hunter

Kraven should be # 2 for being the # 1 bad ass because he can slice you in two

He needs to be in the movie.

He is the only one who can claim he has killed spider-man. Well that he could've. Kraven's Last Hunt

The best spider-man story priceless is with kraven - santas20

10 Kingpin Kingpin Kingpin is a fictional supervillain appearing in comic books by Marvel Comics. He usually serves as an antagonist of Daredevil and Spider-Man. He made his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #50, most well known for being the famous "Spider-Man No More" story.

He's the guy that killed spider man in: spiderman into the spider-verse

Not as good as the one in Daredevil, but still good - Not_A_Weeaboo

Kingpin maybe the arch nemesis of daredevil but he at-aced spider man first

People think Spidey always holds back against the Kingpin because of Back in Black. But, the original author of Kingpin never said that, so, yeah. KINGPIN for the win #1

The Contenders

11 Vulture Vulture

Only cool in the movies. - Cyri

Ok, seriously though, after his incarnation in Spider-Man: Homecoming, I can't chose anyone else. Michael Keaton is just fantastic...

How is he so low after Homecoming

The comic version of Vulture I don't like, but the MCU version made me see Vulture in a whole new light.

By just hearing about Peter's disappearances all the time, he's able to figure out he's Spider-Man, and then threatens Peter to not mess with his business again. He knows Peter will try to stop him, so he sends Shocker to deal with him, then, if it wasn't for his damaged wingsuit, Vulture would've won.
When he's in prison, he runs into Mac Gargan (Scorpion), and declines that he knows who Spider-Man is, claiming "If I knew who he was, he'll already be dead."

MCU Vulture=Best MCU Villain ever

Ironically, this was the best villain and the strongest. - DeadRisingPro

Amazing! SO better than shocker - -l-l-

Not rlly #1 no one wrote here so u see me post.

#1. Gotta give it to Venom/Carnage
2.Green Goblin
3.Doc Oc
4. The Vulture (especially like Homecoming)

13 Hobgoblin Hobgoblin The Hobgoblin is the alias of several fictional supervillains appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly depicted as enemies of Spider-Man.

The most underrated of the recurring spider-man villains

Hobgoblin is the true master planner. He was, and is still able to control things from behind the scenes but can still get his hands dirty when he needs to. With the Green Goblin's arsenal and skill set and a sharper, more calculating mind, getting his hands dirty is a walk in the park. Speaking of his mind, Kingsley's business savvy mindset allows him to see everything as a money making opportunity which lets him function better than most, if not all, Spider-Man villains.


Hobgoblin perfected Green Goblin’s serum and stayed sane, whereas the Green Goblin was insane. The Hobgoblin was also more stronger than ol’ Greenie(even though I really like Green Goblin too). Hobgoblin’s true identity stayed a secret longer than Green Goblin’s did. The only advantage Norman had over Roderick was that he knew Spidey’s identity, while Roderick did not.

14 Shocker Shocker

Shocker focuses on getting money and respect instead of seeking revenge on spiderman. Along with cool abilities and character flaws these make him one of the more interesting spiderman villains

He's the only one who doesn't hold a grudge against spiderman because he understands that its just what heroes do. his personality makes him a very interesting character and he's one of the few who bested spiderman in a fight more than once!

Should be in top 3 such an interesting villain!

Everyone needs to read the superior foes of spiderman so you'll learn what an awesome flawed character he is!

15 Scorpion Scorpion

Mac Gargan as the Scorpion is one of my favorite Spider-Man villains. He'll do anything to kill Spider-Man, and that's pretty awesome.

His tail can shoot lasers and spray acid. That's pretty awesome.

16 Deadpool Deadpool Deadpool is a fictional antihero created by Marvel who appears in their comics. Deadpool's first appearance was in New Mutants #98 by Rob Liefeld and Fabian Nicieza in February of 1991. His powers include self-healing and super strength. He is regarded as one of the funniest characters in comics due more.

They are friends in comics. - wriddhak

Ummm... he isn't a spider-man villain or character. - TriggeredKid

She's a ripoff of Catwoman.

She's way hotter than Mary Jane

18 Toxin

He's more of an anti-hero, but he's awesome

19 New Goblin New Goblin

Harry Osborn is a horrible person period.

Peter's best friend. It's more than green gas that gave him his strength, he took revenge to kill Spiderman for the death of his father, Green Goblin.

20 Anti-Venom

Yes! - TriggeredKid

"Anti venom is awesome after all having his thing with Venom he has shown that he is a very powerful villain in the spiderman Universe".

22 Mister Negative

This guy was so bossbin the new game. He so needs a push to movies or T.V. shows. Avengers endgame, Spiderman into the multi force or a T.V. show like punisher would be a great choice

Martin Li actually makes Spider Man one of his Inner Demons.

Traumatised me as a child
