We all love our Marvel superheroes and often discuss which ones are the most popular or the strongest. But what about the villains that they fight in every comic book, story, and film? They deserve some recognition too. These villains have terrified the world time and again, often forcing the mightiest of superheroes to yield. Marvel supervillains are some of the best characters in the world of comic books and always propell the stories forward, challenging and tricking our heroes.
Though their motivations may be different, they have something in common; they are all determined to get what they want, which might just be world domination. They stop at nothing to achieve their goal. While many villains just can’t get the better of their arch nemeses no matter how hard they try, there are many who have brought the mightiest of earth’s superheroes to their knees. In this post, we take a look at some of the mightiest Marvel villains of all time.
Galactus’ nickname is the eater of the worlds. Need we say more? The supervillain roams around different galaxies devouring worlds. Yes, you read that right, this guy eats entire worlds for breakfast. He sounds like someone who needs to be defeated before he comes around to our own planet. Though the defenders of the Earth have been able to keep him away till now, sooner or later, his hunger will prevail.
How do we describe Thanos? Let’s just say he is on a mission to wipe out even the last traces of life from all of the universes. Not scary enough? He already has his device of destruction (the Infinity Stones contained in the Infinity Gauntlet) ready and can wipe out life on Earth with a snap of his fingers. If Earth is his next stop, we can only hope that there are some powerful superheroes around to stop him.
Widely regarded as the smartest character in the Marvel Comic Universe, Doctor Doom is the embodiment of evil. The supervillain’s arrogance and lust for power knows no bounds. He can go to any length to get what he wants. Over the years, Doctor Doom has amassed a number of scientific and enchanted weapons. His ability to use science and magic to his advantage has earned him the moniker The Scientific Sorcerer.
In the Marvel Comic Universe, the X-men are a force to be reckoned with. The team has defeated many powerful supervillains. Dark Phoenix, however, is not one of them. Dark Phoenix is an evil cosmic entity with limitless powers. She eats entire suns for breakfast. No one in the Marvel Comic Universe has ever been able to find a way to defeat Dark Phoenix, and Jean, the member of the X-men whose body Dark Phoenix possesses, has had to kill herself multiple times to stop the evil force. Jean, however, has been resurrected on every occasion. Each time she wakes up from her slumber, she has to carry the burden of the curse.
With supervillains like these, it’s a good thing we have our favorite Marvel heroes to save the Earth over and over again.
