My favorite villian would have to be Darth Sidious. His manipulative ways and is knowledge of power made him an fierce opponent...until those Rebel scum and their pitiful Jedi Order...sorry. lol
There was a soap opera I'm not ashamed to admit I used to watch called Days of Our Lives. My favorite villain (as of now) was Stephano Dimeara, who was into mind control, had secret "strongholds" all over the world, etc., and went down so many paths and accessed many different "technologies" (both natural and supernatural) to increase his power. His manipulations affected so many people's lives in that community. I think his character was of Eastern European origin -- which of course means he was "exotic" and "mysterious," and so forth.
During his time I think he was the best villain on television.
I have to say that my one of my favorite villains was king pin. Mainly because he really never did any evil acts but he was always able to orchestrate and gather other villains to do all of his dirty deeds.
Caracters like Lex Luthor and Doctor Doom. Megalomaniacal rich guys out to not just rule their little quarter of the planet, but the planet itself, if not more. Perfect foil for the boy scouts of comicdom.
All time favorite - The Joker. No, not because of Heath Ledger's rendition, but the comic character. An absolute maniac with little or no control over his mental state unleashed upon Gotham City only to be foiled by an opposite number who may (or may not) be as psychotic as the Joker.
It's been stupendous readng since 1940 with innovative takes of the character over the decades.I look forward to reading more.

already wrote a hub on this
My favourite non-movie villain is Raskalnikov, in Doestoevsky's "Crime and Punishment".
He is so human, and so disturbed. He believed in an idealisitic way that it was alright for him to murder an old woman because she was of no use to anyone but herself. He also robbed this old woman, and justified it in one of the most twisted philosophical expositions ever written in literature.
It's a great piece of writing. The sad part of it is, most of us can recognize some aspects of Raskalikov's personality in ourselves, though most of us will never ever murder anyone on that account.

I'm sure this has been discussed before, but being new, I'm throwing it out there. Who is your favorite villian - books, movies, tv, whatever? Book-wise, mine would be the husband from "Rose Madder." That guy is creepy as hell. Movie-wise, gotta be Maleficent.
