Comic Book Question of the Week Results: Favorite Marvel Villain

Magneto? Thanos? Doctor Doom? ...Stilt-Man?! Come see which villains the Comic Vine community likes the most!

Villains are currently stealing the spotlight over in the DC universe, so this week, we wanted to give the villains over at Marvel a bit of love. On Tuesday, we asked you who your favorite fiend from the 616 universe is and after two days of voting, only two villains attracted a large number of supporters. The race boiled down to two powerhouses: Magneto and Doctor Doom. So, who did the Comic Vine community ultimately side with? Stilt-Man Doctor Doom!

First appearing in FANTASTIC FOUR #5, the evil genius has proven time and time again that he's more than deserving of A-list status. With a shockingly formidable mind, mystical abilities and a plethora of technology at his disposal, Victor von Doom has been a challenge to numerous big name heroes and has even temporarily stolen Silver Surfer's powers. Plus, the dude has Doombots. That alone is full of win.

Here's the poll results.

If you voted for Doctor Doom, go ahead and tell us why you think he's Marvel's best big bad. Also, share what your favorite Victor von Doom story is! That way, maybe someone else out there can discover why he's awesome. For everyone else, go ahead and tell us why a different character earned your vote.

Want another question of week? Well, check back next Tuesday!

So Loki isn't as liked as it seems. Interesting...

Also not surprising Doom won.

Yeah !!! Vamos Doom !!!!!!!!!!!

Edited by Aeroman

Doom has swag that's why he won

WHAT? NOOOOOO!

STILT MAN DESERVES THE TITLE!

I still think Magneto is a more well rounded character but Doom is pretty badass.

Indeed. It seems like ComicVine has always had an unusually large amount of Doctor Doom die-hards.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I don't understand the appeal.

I voted for Other. He's the coolerest.

Posted by butters911

I love Doom, though he's not my favorite Marvel Villain

Posted by impossibilly

These guys came in 4th place? The Other? Wow, you guys really like to go obscure! ;)

For me this has just established how much better DC's villains are.

I voted for doom! He's like Lex Luthor but with an awesome look and awesome powers. His character is just simply great!

Posted by NoahMcnasty

doom was cool in the ultimate universe especially when the thing crushed his head like a can of pop. other than that one scene magneto is the best.

Man, Stilts was so close to winning this one.
We'll get it next year!

Posted by StMichalofWilson

Man I was hoping for Stilt Man too!

Posted by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub

The answer is always DOOM!

Posted by SynCig

I like Doctor Doom but I have never enjoyed the Fantastic Four so I have a limited amount of exposure to the character. With that being said I voted for Magneto.

Posted by SavageDragon

I love doom but I voted Apocalypse. I also love Sabretooth with Magneto.

Posted by SynCig

@asjmooney: I agree completely. Four of my top five villains are DC. Magneto is the only one of the five that comes from Marvel.

Posted by MissJ

All hope lies in Doom <3

Am i the only one that doesn't like Magneto's new costume though? (i know completely off subject)

Posted by MaccyD

@omnicrono: He pretty much invented the typical super villain just as superman invented the typical superhero.

Posted by kgb725

@asjmooney: I don't see that many great villains in Dc besides darkseid and brainiac

Edited by nappystr8

It's amazing how far Dr. Doom and Magneto are above all the other villains.

Edited by MadeinBangladesh

I call this vote a scam! Those damn Doombots hacked the system!

Posted by evilvegeta74

He stole the powers of the Silver Surfer, Doom stole the powers of the Beyonder!

Edited by War Killer

Books of Doom is probably my favorite Doctor Doom story ever.

Edited by Grey56

@the_stegman: Not that I got to vote (and would have for Thanos, Apocalypse or Cassandra Nova) but what was your bone about the results? Only curious.


@bumburger No, I agree with you completely; the new outfit is bad. And I love Bachalo.

@impossibilly: HAHA! Was I the only person who thought that was funny?

Posted by Miss_Garrick

I do envy a person who knows how to speak in all caps. DOOM, BRIAN BLESSED, Steven Berkoff as GENERAL ORLOV, Peter Sellers as Dr. Stranglove, etc.

Posted by Fallen_Crippled

Magneto is the best.

Edited by Super_SoldierXII

Aw man ... how bout the psychotic Hellfire twelve year old kids!!! Thems be the bestest, coolest idea to ever come to comics!!!

Who doesn't want to watch children torture and kill their parents and hundreds of innocents for entertainment whilst outsmarting the greatest minds amongst the X-Men and rich elite of Marvel (read : sarcasm). Tis so believe and awesome and stuff.

Posted by The Stegman

@deranged_midget: You'll take the sarcasm and like it! [Insert evil laugh here]

Really? We're taking 22% as a winner & claiming that's who the community likes most? (If a presidential election was one with 22% we wouldn't say that's who the country wanted most). Why not a part 2 where we see where the 58% who didn't vote for Magneto or Doom vote for? Doom very well could win again, but it would be a more definitive win that way.

That's.........the dumbest thing I've ever heard.

How does this establish that in any single way?

How does this prove that a clown in make-up or that a bald xenophobe is better?

I mean,I don't mean to insult the characters that I dearly love,but the point is,you stating that they are "better" as if it's objective or anything but your opinion is silly. Especially since this has nothing really to do with DC.

Some people can say that DC doesn't even have good villains.

Posted by CrazyScarecrow

Well this is surprising. I love Doom, but I know there isn't as many Fantastic Four fans as there is X-Men, Spidey, and Avengers.

Edited by Wolverine08

I don't get why so many people are irked by Doom winning.

Posted by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub

Haters gonna hate while DOOM dominates!

Edited by madrid_san

Only because Magneto is NOT actually a villain anymore. Otherwise, he wins hands down!

I think that Loki's comic book popularity isn't as much as his Cinematic Universe popularity. I believe it's more Tom Hiddleston as Loki that fans enjoy than the concept of Loki in general.
