<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com <![CDATA[The Best X-Men Villains and Enemies Ever]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-x-men-villains/ranker-comics

The X-Men are a team of mutants whose purpose is to see that humans and mutants coexist peacefully in the pages of Marvel Comics. Unfortunately, not everyone sees eye to eye with the X-Men. There are as many X-Men bad guys as Jay Leno has cars. Meaning a lot. Some which have popped up in the popular X-Men movies. 
 

Many human organizations like the Friends of Humanity think that mutants should be destroyed or banned from living normal lives as their powers are too much of a threat. X-Villains like Apocalypse, Magneto, and Mister Sinister have also been reeking havoc on the X-Men since 1963, Magneto being their first X-Men villain they’ve faced. Even some of the X-Men themselves have crossed the line to the dark side or even started out naughty, like Rogue, who was a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Wolverine and the X-Men can't even catch a break in their popular blockbuster films against the likes of the Hellfire Club, Lady Deathstrike, and the X-Men enemy Sabretooth. 
 

We have for you this list of X-Men villains that make up the X-Men rogues gallery. But which are the greatest X-Men baddies to go up against our favorite mutants? Is Magneto, the Master of Magnetism your favorite X-Men bad guy, or can you not resist the shapeshifting Mystique? 
 

Make sure to vote up all your favorite X-Men evildoers and vote down the ones you think aren't worth the X-Men's valuable time. This X-Men villains list does not include all X-Men enemies. You have the option to add in the X-Men foes we missed, so make sure add your favorite X Men villains.

<![CDATA[The Best Current NFL Coaches]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-current-nfl-coaches/ranker-nfl
The best current NFL coaches are those top football coaches who have led their team to greatness in recent years. Between the longest-tenured National Football League coaches to the experienced coaches in new roles, one of these talented coaches will guide their team to a Super Bowl championship come February.

In the love-him-or-hate-him category, Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots is regarded as among the elite current NFL coaches if not one of the best NFL coaches of all time. Coaching the Pats since 2000, Belichick is a three-time NFL Coach of the Year as he helped Tom Brady and company play in five Super Bowls, winning three, in 13 seasons.

But even Belichick can be beaten and the likes of John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens and Tom Coughlin of the New York Giants have done so recently, in the NFL Playoffs, in convincing fashion. The list of the best coaches currently in the NFL doesn't end there though. Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mike McCarthy of the Green Bay Packers, Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints, John Harbaugh of the San Francisco 49ers and John Fox of the Denver Broncos all fit that bill too.

Sadly as great as some of these coaches are, others will inevitably end up quickly replaced with someone else after a poor season and possibly end up among the worst NFL coaches of all time rankings. But as a new season starts, each have a clean slate and opportunity for greatness. Who knows, perhaps some will surprise everyone and quickly rise to become the best current NFL coach one day soon.
The Best Current NFL Coaches,

Andy Reid
Kansas City Chiefs
Bill Belichick
New England Patriots
Bruce Arians
Arizona Cardinals
John Fox
Chicago Bears
John Harbaugh
Baltimore Ravens
Mike McCarthy
Green Bay Packers
Mike Tomlin
Pittsburgh Steelers
Pete Carroll
Seattle Seahawks
Ron Rivera
Carolina Panthers
Sean Payton
New Orleans Saints

<![CDATA[The Best Game of Thrones Characters]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-game-of-thrones-characters
List of the best, most interesting characters from HBO's "Game of Thrones" series. Though the complicated study of power dynamics in the fantasy kingdom of Westeros may not have too many identifiable or even sympathetic lead characters, it has nonetheless produced a wide variety of compelling, entertaining and outsized personalities, from the brutal boy king Joffrey Baratheon to his diminutive but ingenious cousin Tyrion Lannister to their rivals, the Stark family of Winterfell and the "Mother of Dragons," Daenerys Targaryen. But which characters are the true fan favorites, providing the most memorable moments and unexpected plot twists?

HBO's "Game of Thrones" show is based on the "Song of Ice and Fire" cycle of novels by fantasy author George R. R. Martin. That series - like the TV version - takes place in a medieval fantasy world, on two continents known as Westeros and Essos. The first novel in the series, also called "Game of Thrones," was published in August of 1996. This book introduced the basic narrative which would unfold over the course of the rest of the series, concerning which family would claim the Iron Throne of Westeros following the death of King Robert Baratheon. (Prior to Robert's rule, the Targaryen family had controlled the throne - and united the Kingdom of Westeros - for several generations.)

Martin has said that the series was partially based on the real "War of the Roses" that engulfed England in civil war in the 15th Century. Those conflicts concerned a rivalry between the houses of Lancaster and York, whose names clearly provided inspiration for the rival families of Lannister and Stark in the "Game of Thrones" universe.

For your fill of Game of Thrones discussion, check out more lists like the fittest females in Game of Thrones, the hated characters in Game of Thrones, or vote on which Game of Thrones death was the most satisfying.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Pro Wrestlers of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-pro-wrestlers-of-all-time/sportsyeah
The greatest pro wrestlers of all-time include WrestleMania winners, WWF and WWE champions and TNA favorites. The entertainment of professional wrestling may be staged but all of these professional wrestlers are easily some of the toughest professional fighters inside of the ring or out. This list of all pro wrestlers can be ordered according to their popularity. Just vote for your favorites.

Combining Greco-Roman wrestling with boxing, freestyle wrestling and theater, professional wrestling dates back nearly a century. At first, professional wrestling was more about the actual competition rather than the script. In the early days, it was Lou Thesz who was the most-feared wrestler around. Thesz, who had no trouble going off-script to win a match and keep his title, is considered the first true wrestling superstar and an innovator of the business.

So is the greatest pro wrestler ever? This list will answer that question and your vote matters.

Thesz continued to dominate until the next era of wrestlers entered in the 1950s and 1960s. Top contenders like Bruno Sammartino and Buddy Rogers helped the sport of professional wrestling grow with their flashy and flamboyant performance styles as well as more often than not came out on top of their matches.

Moving into the 1980s and 1990s, wrestling evolved into a performance. The uniforms the wrestlers wore became flashier and the scripted aspects began to increase, as did the fan following. Some of the best wrestlers of all time came from that golden era such as Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, Ric Flair and Bret Hart. With business booming, professional wrestling only continued to grow in recent years with big names like Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock using their WWE fame to launch their careers.

Professional wrestling may not be for everyone but with a long history of success and a wildly popular following, the likes of WWE and TNA are not going away anytime soon. Any one of the current wrestlers competing today could become the next greatest professional wrestler of all time but until then, we can only enjoy watching them compete to become that.

This list is more than just the 100 greatest wrestlers of all time - we've got 'em all! Add any that might be missing and be sure to vote for all your favorites!
The Greatest Pro Wrestlers of All Time,

André the Giant

Bret Hart

Bruno Sammartino

Harley Race

Hulk Hogan

Jake Roberts

Jimmy Snuka
