    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.

    This is touuuugh.

    Movie-wise, I don't remember his name, but I love Gary Oleman's villian in Leon: The Professional.

    Book-wise, I can't choose. sad I like that crusty villian from Twelfth Night by Shakespeare I guess.

      Leon.  Good one.  Love him biting down on whatever that is that he bites down on.

      I spelled "villain" wrong, just noticed.  Sorry.

    Edgler Vess in the Dean Koontz book, Intensity.  John McGinley played the character in the movie.

      Wow, Tommy.  I didn't even THINK to pick a book villain!  With that said, I'll go with Randall Flagg from Stephen King's The Stand!  That guy IS evil incarnate!

        Awww Elmer couldn't shoot straight.  He couldn't hurt a fly. The same can't be said for PETA.

    This is a kind of harmless one (compared to other villains), but I liked Queen Narissa in Disney's "Enchanted".  I'm not much of a fan of the more "realistic" villains; and Susan Serandon made a great (and humorous) evil queen.

    He's not a villain as such but Francis Begbie in Trainspotting, a total psycho, one of the best characters ever, book and film.

    I have a few that stand out for completely different reasons.

    Ozymandias from Watchmen for having such a calculated, cold, and strange sense of morality;

    The Joker, specifically from the Dark Knight, for his obsession with chaos and ruined vision of humankind;

    Sephiroth from the video game Final Fantasy 7, for being so egocentric as to think of himself as something of a God;

    and Daniel Plainview from There Will Be Blood, for his tragic and impenetrable hatred of people.

    from movies--I'd have to go with Magneto from the X Men movies

    books--hmm...I guess probably Hannibal Lecter

    from movies definitely kevin spacey's character in "seven".  such an intelligent evil - there something oddly respectful, creepily artistic in his portrayl.

    books - Kate in John Steinbeck's "East of Eden".  He truly shows her degeneration into her lies and manipulations.  it's quite a poignant portrayl of human depravity.

    Heath Ledger as the Joker in the Dark Knight has to be my number one favorite.

    I would say Hannibal Lecter is one of my favorites.Also That crazy ass dude from Devils Rejects, the dude with the beard and the big ass knife. Mister Rodgers was pretty scary!

      Book wise, Bugs Meaney from the old Encyclopedia Brown books

    Principal Richard Vernon from the movie "The Breakfast Club" - not really evil but a villan none the less - a real schmuck!

    Darth Vader as movie villian.  But then again, I'm into heavy breathing and guys in black uniforms.  lol

    Christian Slater in Very Bad Things, but I'm not sure if that counts.  I'd have to say Ursula from The Little Mermaid is pretty bad-a.
