Marvel has so many great villains, many of them deserve their own movie or tv show. Here are my favorite marvel villains.
(This myTake/article is a complement to my other myTake/article where I list my favorite marvel heroes, which you can read here.)
1. Master Man
A Nazi super soldier and member of super axis who is physically superior to Captain America. His major weakness is that his powers are temporary, as in they activate and deactivate, similar to DC’s Shazam.
2. Gorgon (Tomi Shishido)
A mutant who has superhuman strength, speed, dexterity, endurance etc. He is also highly skilled in martial arts and his nickname “Gorgon” is a reference to his power of being able to turn people into stone by making eye contact with them.
3. Baron Von Strucker
A high ranking hydra member who doesn’t age. He is also a skilled martial artist and is highly intelligent.
The son of wolverine and his wife Itsu. He has the same physical abilities as his father but unlike his father, Daken is a villain due to a lack of guidance.
5. Red Skull
A classic marvel villain known for being Captain America’s arch nemesis. His Grotesque appearance is the result of his super soldier syndrome gone wrong that gave him superhuman abilities at the cost of his human appearance.
6. Lady Deathstrike
A female mutant with similar abilities as Wolverine. Admantium skeleton regeneration, superhuman strength, speed etc. And is a skilled martial artist.
7. Warrior Woman
A female super soldier and member of the super axis.
The bigger badder version of Wolverine and had countless fights with Wolverine as well. He has similar abilities to Wolverine but also has incredible senses.
9. Lizard Man/Curtis Connors
A mad scientist who injected himself with his own serum in order to regrow one of his arms but also unintentionally gave himself the ability to transform into a giant reptilian creature.
10. The Mandarin
A Eurasian (Half Chinese, half English) villain who’s goal is world domination. He’s highly athletic and highly skilled in martial arts. But he is mostly known for his ten rings that grant him various powers.
11. Amatsu Mikaboshi
A very powerful(most powerful villain on this list) demonic entity who has supernatural levels of Strength, speed, agility etc. He is an inter dimensional being, capable of flight, teleportation, resurrection, manipulating size of matter and enslaving almost anything. He also managed to slay Zeus who is stronger than he is on one occasion. Very few marvel characters can stop him, Izanagi is one those few characters who can stop him.
12. Carl Creel/Absorbing Man
A former boxer turned hydra agent capable of temporarily absorbing any properties of matter and energy to use them as weapons or protection.
A psychopathic Assassin who can throw any object at superhuman lethal speeds and has superhuman marksmanship. He is also fairly good at martial arts. His two worst enemies are daredevil and the Punisher.
14. Black Tarantula
A skilled martial artist and member of the hand. His enhanced abilities(strength, speed, durability healing etc) are the result of a potion he drank. He can also shoot energy beams through his eyes.
Perhaps one of the most sexually attractive female characters in marvel. A human mutant with shapeshifting abilities and enhanced physical abilities. While she isn’t always a villain, I think she’s still perfect for this list.
16. Mister Hyde
Calvin Zabo is a genius scientist who via a special formula acquired the ability to turn at will into a monster known as Mister Hyde who also has superhuman strength. He is based on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
A physically enhanced mercenary who isn’t exactly a villain but frequently comes in conflict with heroes and anti heroes. He also wears some type of advanced bullet proof armor.
18. Agent X
A mercenary who has superhuman regeneration, strength, dexterity, speed and endurance. It’s heavily implied that he’s an alternate version of Deadpool.
19. Heinrich Zemo
A Nazi scientist who created various wunderwaffen for the Nazis during WWII. Aside from his genius intellect, he’s also an expert in martial arts. He’s probably the most evil villain on this list due to his complete disregard for his own people as shown when he tested his death ray on a German town in an attempt at framing the allies.
20. Helmut Zemo
The son of Heinrich Zemo. Not primarily a scientist like his father but he is still fairly intelligent. Helmut primarily a combat specialist. His mask hides his disfigurement he received when he fought Captain America
