I've said it before and I've said it again: Clay Face (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clay_face). There is just something so romantic, in a tragedy sense, about his story. I truly felt for him as a human and as a villian. My favorite representation of him was definitely in Batman: The Animated Series (pictured below).

This thread already exists, as well as a hero thread. Nobody really posted there as well. Most people are too busy D&D and complaining to come to the Superhero sub-forum.

so by what criteria are we calling a villain 'great'? that's what stumps me. despiciable, evil, heartless, sly, wicked... those i can rate a villain on. but greatness? i guess that limits it to redeemed villains, in which case, i would tend to vote for darth vader.

What makes a villian great to you. If you enjoy them, for whatever reason, and they are seen as evil by the general public or superheroes which are clearly good, then I think they fit here.

Harley Quinn is my favorite female sidekick of all time. She is just so sexy and her wicked sense of humor is delicious.

Ultron. I just like a villain who keeps coming back.

Doom.

Lex Luthor.

Gorilla Grodd.

The Ultrahumanite.

The Mindworm.

(Hmm. I don't read Marvel, but their villains are, I think, a bit better. I mean, it's not tough to be better than the Bronze Age version of Terra Man.)

How about MAGNETO?!! He's reoccuring, cool, angsty, rival of Professor X, really believes in his cause (like Collier in 4400, maybe), intellectually brilliant, loyal to his followers (except maybe Mystique, but that was just in the movie, I think--I doubt he'd have left her behind, myself), father of Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch, lover of Rogue (I think that was in a possible future), etc. He's just awesome. Show some love for the greatest villain of all time, IMHO! :cool:

I have many supervillains that I like for different reasons. Here are a few:

1) Joker (the half-psycho, half-prankster interpretation akin to his portrayal in the '90s Batman Animated Series) - There's something to love about a villain who's a complete loon and has no motive greater than to entertain his whimsy. No super powers, no grand world-domination scheme...just a crackpot looking for his next sick laugh.

2) Apocalypse - Always liked Apocalypse because he was a villain actually working toward something sensible: Darwinism. He wasn't "evil for the sake of being evil". He simply believes that the strong should rule and the weak should cower beneath them.

3) Venom - A great concept for "personalizing" a villain against Spidey on two fronts. Not only did Brock have reason to hate Spidey (and Parker), but the symbiote hated them as well. Put the two together and you've got the perfect Anti-Spider-Man fan club. I always liked that Venom wasn't just out to kill Parker, what he really wanted was to ruin his life.

Sinbad the Sailor. Just some big mean dude that beats on people. Pure and simple. And he beats on pop eye pretty bad, so you know he's got skills.

Love Ozymandias! Inspiringly practical villain. He is a fine example of a "Ends Justify the Means" character. He was doing what he believed had to be done for the betterment of mankind. "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions." :D

Just hope they do the character justice in the upcomming film.
