Let’s be real here, superheros wouldn’t be much without good villains. Marvel, DC, independents, whatever. Any villain. Even public domain.
The place to rap about villains, i.e. what makes a good villain, the classic villains, new villains, costume designs, powers, etc, etc…
Personally some of my favorite parts in comics is when a hero and villain team up in a sort of anti-hero begrudgingly type manner. It’s in-fucking credible 9 times out of 10.
To start things off, some of the first villains I was intrigued by.
Venom is pure, 100 percent fear and power, the more bestial version of what Spider-Man could have been, other than Man-Spider, of course.
The Lizard is pretty cool as well, one of Parker’s previous professors with the classic centuries old archetype of Dr. Jekyl/Mr. Hyde. Brawn and brains.
The man has enough pizzazz and style to put nearly any hero or villain to shame. There will only be one Mysterio.
The Shocker is so-so, his only saving grace is his power in my opinion, his costume looks like an Iron Man ripoff that got stuck in an waffle iron.
One of the few villains that come to mind that qualify as senile, The Vulture ( I actually searched for The Buzzard at first, shame on me)
Lastly, the most serious villain I had ran across in my ASM days, Morlun.
