We all have our favorite comic book heroes – heroes who fascinate us with their supernatural powers, delight us with their fancy fighting skills and inspire us with their bravery. But if you were to honestly assess which character leaves you with a lasting impression at the end of every story, you would be forced to acknowledge that it is the fearless villain! We pay a tribute to some of the most dangerous comic book villains in this top ten list.
10. Dr. Octopus
An experiment that goes horribly wrong leaves Dr. Otto Octavius, with four mechanical arms fused to his body creating Dr. Octopus. Named Doc Ock by Spiderman, Dr. Octopus is consumed with a desire to prove his genius to the world and to destroy Spiderman. This makes him one of Spiderman’s most persistent and deadly foes.
The sole survivor of a universe that existed before the creation of the current universe (before the Big Bang), Galactus has demi-god like powers and actually needs to devour planets to sustain himself!
This villain is terrifying for the sheer ominous fury it can unleash.
Born through an agonizing process of being killed and then recreated several times over, Doomsday is devoid of any compassion or regard for life. Filled with great powers of survival and utterly ruthless, Doomsday defeats the entire Justice League using just one free arm. As the only supervillain to have actually killed Superman, Doomsday has to be certainly regarded as one of the most dangerous supervillains of all times.
A highly complex character, Bane is one of the more intelligent adversaries of Batman. Though he is physically very powerful, Bane is sane and in control of his actions unlike the other villains that Batman faces. Further, he has a grudging respect for Batman and is one of the few villains who knows of his real identity
Venom is an alien that has a liquid-like form and cannot survive without a host, usually a human. Its first host on Earth was Spiderman before its evil intents became known. When Venom bonded with Eddie Brock to create the supervillain Venom, it also became one of Spiderman’s archenemies. Today, Venom is one of the most popular foes of Spiderman.
