Manos...it's frightening!


« on: November 21, 2007, 11:43:06 AM »

My favorite villain is and probably always will be the Joker, but recently, I've been getting into Darkseid, one of Superman's tougher enemies.  I guess I just like seeing someone slap Supes around hehe.  Really though, I find the whole New Gods war pretty interesting.  It's making me buy comics again, which isn't a habit I want to get into really.

Seems that after a good decade of being into X-men and related stuff, I'm switching channels for a bit and getting into DC again.  I'm not one of those either-or types; I like them both, but I think I've just been spent on Marvel for a little while...but I'm sure I'll be back to that soon.

What villains are you into and why?

I'm not huge into comics but I'd have to say Batman's villains are my favorite;
1.) The Joker because the whole sadistic humor thing going on.
2.) Bane-he actually defeated Batman in a cold and calculating way

My top 3:

1.) Joker- Looking all dapper in his purple overcoat, the clown takes to the night and commits evil acts.

2.) Venom/Carnage- Not sure which I wanted to go with here.  Both are sick.

3.) The Shredder- Shredder's underrated.  Very much so.

Hmmm, these probably don't really count as villains. But it's the best I can come up with, since I'm not really into the Marvel-Universe:

1.) The Saint of Killers - His overall character and motivations might not be that imaginative, but his determinateness is impressive

2.) Moe

Carnage - slaughtered hundreds of people by himself,keeps coming back.

Bullseye - deadly accuracy with anything as a weapon,unbreakable spine.

Galactus - the power.

Dr. Doom - still let`s nothing try to get in his way of world domination.

Mystique - sex appeal, and shapeshifting is sweet.

DOCTOR DOOM. Greatest adversary of the Fantastic Four. A very powerful threat to any hero or team of heroes.

DARKSEID: Yeah another very powerful villain. Tend to prefer villains this way. Seemingly unstoppable.

THE LIZARD: Crafty and vicious combined. A frightful threat. There's also the horror trappings of the character.

KRAVEN THE HUNTER: another great Spidey villain who you always wondered whether he might not just get the best of Peter Parker.

GREEN GOBLIN: Another great Spidey villain with Horror trappings again.

THE SCARECROW: Again I like the horror trappings of the character.

MR. FREEZE: the way he was done in "Batman: The Animated Series" ws awesome.

I've always liked Spiderman badies (Green Goblin, Doc Oc, Venom, and Carnage) but I'd have to say my favorite rogue's gallery has to be Batman's.  Joker's right at the top but I also like Ras Al Ghul, Poison Ivy (not the movie version), Bane (as mentioned before -he's hardcore), Mad Hatter, Riddler, Scarecrow (although they could write him better than a one-trick pony), and let's not forget Two-Face.  I think I like that most of his villains are not super-powered and most have some extreme mental disorder, which in some cases makes them slightly sympathetic. 

Superman, although I think he's too much of a boy scout for my tastes, has an interesting rogue's gallery as well.  I have a lot of respect for Luthor considering he's a big thorn in Supe's side and he's just a normal guy (a rich, intelligent, and motivated evil guy).  And as already mentioned, I like Darkseid a lot - something about a god-like being slapping Supes around is very appealing.  Brainiac is kickass -always loved mega-computers gone wild. 

And after years of being an X-Men fan, I have to list my favs from that: Apocalpyse, Sinister, Magneto, Sentinals/Mastermold, Jauggernaut, and the White Queen.  Mystique, as mentioned, is kick ass as well.

No question. My favorite comic book villain is Superman's chief rival, Lex Luthor.

I have a weakness for The Dread Dormammu, I must admit.   Just because I love that period of artwork in Dr. Strange, and I love the language and the over-floweriness of it all.   Crimson Bands of Cyttorak this and bolts of bedevilment that.    I spent a whole summer sitting in the Michigan State Library's special collections department, reading old Dr. Stranges three at a time.   Those were good times.

I enjoyed watching the Burning Man b***h-slap the JLA around in "Trial by Fire."

My favorite, though, is Miller's version of the Joker, because he evokes the best in the Batman.  ("I've always known, Joker, that there's nothing wrong with you that I can't fix... with my hands.")

I know I already posted the RED SKULL-but I got to thinking...who came first? the Red Skull...

Another cool one...P'Gell-of the SPIRIT



..and Hitler! Think about it. Hitler is in a lotta comics!
