Top Ten Spider-Man Villains

Spider-Man Villains are some of the best. Pick which one is your favorite.

The Top Ten

1 Venom Venom Venom, or the Venom Symbiote, is an alias used by several fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with Spider-Man.

Venom is just so awesome I wish a least Stan lee would make him a hero but being a thunderbolt don't count plus he can mix with carnage to make toxin

The absolute best, they couldve done more with Spiderman 3 - roblist

The only villain who can do what spiderman can do! The symbiote is super awesome and creepy! Plus it's an alien and everybody knows that they rock!

The BEST EVER! I don't even have to explain why he is the best Spider-Man villain. Plus his costume looks awesome!

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 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

Here's why I think Green Goblin is the greatest Marvel superhero of time, and deserves to be known as Spider-Man archenemy: He is psychotic Joker-level, he is intelligent Riddler-level, he is rich and unpredictable Lex Luthor-level, he is dangerous Venom-level and he is really strong Kingpin-level. He knows who Spider-Man is, he killed Spider-Man's first love interest Gwen Stacy, he had sex and had a baby with one of Spidey's exes, he has a lot of unpredictable gadgets and he just poses the biggest threat to Spider-Man, and even the Avengers!

Spider mans arch enemy hands down

Green Goblin killed Spider-Man, killed Gwen Stacy, and turned his best friend against him. I think I've said enough

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 guy took his dying body, put peter Parker's consciousness inside it, then took his own consciousness and put it inside Spider-Man's body. He then let peter Parker die inside his own broken body and took over as spider-man. He's also threatened the world countless times, even going so far as to amplifying global warming and using it as a weapon. He formed the sinister six, he killed captain George Stacy and countless others.

The end to superior spider man 30 was very touching it showed that doc rock was never truly a villain but still his power is very creative plus he's a genius

He is just way the best villain from Marvel, he is just a cool creep an it was so awesome in the bank robbing scene from Spiderman 2, the top 3 should be:

1 Doctor Octopus
2 Sandman
3 Green Goblin

He is so smart!

4 Carnage Carnage Carnage is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, usually as an enemy of Spider-Man.

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.

He's a beast. Symbiote merged with a blood thirsty murderer.
It takes everything Spiderman and Venom has to bring him down.

Venom is cool because he's a buff guy who merged with a dangerous symbiote, but how about a blood-thirsty murderer merging with the symbiote, that is terrifying. Also he has such a great intense backstory about him having an abusive father and an absent mother, no wonder this guy turned into a mad killer. Sadly, not a lot of spiderman T.V. shows or games that have Carnage in them reference the fact that Carnage is Venom's son. And he has such a scary voice. And unlike Venom, he is immune to sound, his only weakness is fire. Carnage is the greatest spiderman villain of them all and I hope he appears in a movie

Carnage by himself took down an entire avengers team must I repeat, by himself. and over welmed spidey and forced him to retreat. not to mention it took a technologically advanced agent venom with a sonic gun to barely stun carnage. carnage is three times more powerful than spidey and twice as powerful as venom - reaperam

5 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 Electro

The human dubstep machine!

So many boss moments in amazing spiderman 2

Mysterio is cool and all but Electro is my favourite villain

I never liked Electro but then I saw him in action in Amazing Spide Man 2! He was awesome and should be in the top 5.

7 Sandman Sandman more.

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.

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

I think that sandman would be number 1 because he can make huge amounts of sand he could wipe out 300 people just by sand.

Pretty cool

8 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.

I will admit there are better villains, but he was a bastard in old man logan though

Mysterio's head has always fascinated me.

He may have a fish bowl on his head notch villain.

I Love Venom,But Ever Since I Was Quite Very Young,I Always Had a Soft Spot for Mysterio.i Mean,i Am That Person Who Doesn't Like Noses That Much,and He Has None.Sometimes I Like Him,Sometimes I Don't.i Like His Design,and Most of His Voices,But I Hate it When it Turns Out to Be a Man With a Fishbowl of His Head! it Makes Him Less Fascinating.but I Just Love Mysterio!

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

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

The Contenders

11 Hobgoblin

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.

12 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!

13 Vulture

He flies around in a green suit with green wings - Ajkloth

How is he so low after Homecoming

First I thought he is a dumb villain. But after I saw Homecoming, I am thinking he is the best MCU villain

14 Kingpin Kingpin

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
