The Defenders are very much like the Avengers, and as such, share a fair amount of their villains. But The Defenders being such a large and diverse group of heroes, their roster of enemies is as well. Of the many villains, foes, and rogues the Defenders face throughout the Marvel Comics series, which are the best?

The Defenders began with just The Hulk, Doctor Strange, and Namor, but it soon grew to a team sometimes 12-15 heroes strong, with alternating members like Silver Surfer, Hakweye, Professor X, Luke Cage, Daredevil, Moon Knight Spider-Man, and even all of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Naturally with each of these heroes brings with them a whole slate of enemies. 

Below we've gathered up the most iconic Defenders villains and foes, so vote up your favorites to determine which is truly the best Defenders villain of all time!
