I always viewed Galactus as a force of nature, not really evil, just looking for a meal. Thanos would be on my list somewhere near the top just because his plans are always so grand. Sure, anyone can plan to take over the world, but kill half the galaxy? Or to become a god? Now we're talking Big Time.

Like Uncle Goat, I think any list of Marvel villains has to include Thanos. Off the top of my head and in no particular order, Mordo, Loki, the Green Goblin, the Kingpin, Magneto, Apocalypse, Thanos, Galactus, the Red Skull, and Dr. Doom would be the quick choices for me. If Galactus doesn't count, then how about the Sentinels? Or the Magus?

The First Villain is Apocalypse.

He is also the most powerful and the most popular villain for all time. Apocalypse is going to be a stronger villain than in X men Legends 2.

Doesn't anyone else respect Owen Reese, The Molecule Man. He is the most powerfull being in the marvel universe. He can manipalate matter on the subatomic level.

Galactus,Apocolypse, Avengers, Fantastic Four, Dr Doom and every X-man ever could all combine their powers along with Mephisto and the Watcher and both the Olympian and Asgard Gods all together could not stop Owen if he wanted to destroy them all.

Domenick Dicce 3 years ago

Marvel has so many great characters. Being a Spider-Man fan I would have had more of his villains on my list but great selection bad guys.

Andrew 3 years ago

Number 1 is Dr.Doom because his main reason is to kill richards also he sent reed's kid to hell because controlled by anger and hate, also had a kid with Sue Richard's but was so evil he named the kid since Sue wanted to keep it, Also Doom stole odins power, the infinty gauntlet, and some of galactus cosmic energy. Also he can summon demons to haunt people to get what he wants, also Dr.Doom created the masters of evil.

1. DrDoom

2. Mephisto/Dormammu because bone reigns hell and the other is dark magic and dark dimensions

3. Thanos

4. Galactus

5. Apocolypse

6. Onslaught

7. Magneto

8. Spider-Carnage almost blew up the multi-verse.

Andrew 3 years ago

9. Green Goblin he raped gwen stacy and rained those kids to kill spiderman, killed Gwen Stacy and dropped her 80 feet from the sky, had his own son go as him and have spiderman kill harry, lost mary jane in owens technology and kept her their, also used evil lords like Doom, and formed the sinister twelve to bring spiderman and black cat down.

10. Venom has obsession with killing spiderman.

Fred 3 years ago

Thanos with the Infinity Gauntlit could use half of these guys as toilet paper

Freddy 2 years ago
