The Best Marvel Villains

List Criteria: Must be from the Marvel Universe only. No other publishers.

The best Marvel villains are the men and women at the root of the best superheros' existences. These spectacular bad guys are the best of the worst super villains and they're all listed here. There are several elements that make a great Marvel villain: they have to be relentless in their pursuit of evil, unstoppable by normal crime fighters, and have an excellent backstory that makes you root for them almost as much as you root against them. These are characters that were introduced in the greatest comic books of all time and came to shape in some of the best superhero movies ever. Whether you like the bad guys with a relatable origin that lead to their destructive bent (Magneto), or a super villain that's super bad (Loki), there are some ultimate baddies on this Marvel Villains list.

Who is the best comic book villain? Who is the best superhero nemesis? Who are the top Marvel villains? Vote on this list of the greatest Marvel villains and find out! If you think one of these super villains isn't worth a match-up with a Powerpuff Girl, vote them down. If your favorite Marvel villain isn't on the list, add them so they can compete for the title of best Marvel villain.
