It's a classic storytelling trope, but when it comes to the MCU, it seems like there's a high volume of villains created by heroes menacing the planet. To paraphrase Harvey Dent, "You either die a hero, or you live long enough to create a villain that's way more dangerous than what you became a hero to stop in the first place." In the case of Iron Man, you spend most of your free time giving people that final push they need to break into super-villainy.
Villains normally have sob stories to get the viewer at least somewhat on their side. If that origin involves the titular hero, well, even better. In this list, you're going to see all the MCU villains that were created through the lies, deception, inaction, and stupidity of the Marvel Universe's heroes. Once you read the list, you can decide for yourself if the universe truly is better with all those Avengers flying around.
