That's a GREAT list!
That's a GREAT list!
love this list. Harley, Ivy, Killer frost and Maxima you have all my favorite female villains.
love harley quinn but dark pheonix or poison ivy should be 1st nice list tho
This list is fantastic!
Considering Harley Quinn is both your user name and number 1 on the list, im guessing shes your fav character?
Allow me to preface this by saying I'm a dyed in the wool DC--hardly ever touch the Marvel stuff--so know that my gripes are not due to personal preference/bias in any way:
You're going to rank--on a list of the top twenty female villains (I'm assuming 'of all time')--Harley Quinn ahead of Dark Phoenix? The cosmically powered, has-died-several-times-and-lived-to-tell-the-tale, started-the-revolving-door-death-cliche DARK PHOENIX?
Look, I don't even read the X-books, but that stinks of being completely, utterly bogus to me. You don't even back up your reasoning for having Harley in the top spot--ahead of sorceresses, super powered beings and a freakin' *goddess* level witch--beyond 'extreme agility' and 'she improves on the Joker's plans'.
(And FYI: no, she doesn't. Not without getting her tuchus chucked out the nearest eighth floor window.)
Also, 'Black Cat: basically the same as Catwoman'?....so...you don't actually know anything about either character's origins and motivations, then? Also, hey, Cheetah's been Wondy's archenemy for WAY longer than 'since Superfriends'. Can you say Golden Age? 'Cause I certainly can.
If this is a list of your personal favorites ranked in order of preference, yay and all, but nothing sets my teeth on edge quite as fast as a generic 'Top Twenty' list that doesn't actually give decent *reasons* for the character rankings.
I know she hasn't been present for a vary long time, but what about Cassandra Nova? She was responsible for the deaths of about sixteen million mutants when she unleashed the sentinels on Genosha. She is one of my favorite female villain.
Would I put them in the same order??? Probably not, but hey, its your list, that is the point. I didn't hear you list it as the Top 20 Villans by power rank list...
I do think you were getting a little tired of typing towards the end and rushing, but yet again, your list ^^
Great job, I like see some of the non mainstream villains.
I "heart" Poison Ivy and Black Cat
And don't forget Black WIdow, though she is good now, she was once a Bad @ss Villain
I also think it is funny, that many of the baddies out there are reforming their ways, for now ;)
I forgot how cool this list is
You have far too many reformed villains on this list, but it is a good list.
Excellent list!!! I liked the inlcusion of Livewire.
Good list though i dont really think Songbird belongs there...she was never good at being bad and what about Madelyne Pryor
To echo (echo) this is one superb list! Ooh, plus Spiral! (don't see Spiral on many lists)
great list !
But no Mystique!?
Amazing list ^^
Maxima's a hero
Great list, but it really shows how many female supervillains get runs as anti-heroes. I think only 2 or 3 on this list have been villains the entire time. And then there are examples like Elektra.
Morgan Le Fay is a marvel character and you said "Justice League the Animated Series gives a great story to her in the first season".
Nice list, but what happened to #3 and #7?
@bitemetechie: that's great and all that you want to be a negative whiny little brat but I'm pretty sure they meant THEIR top 20 female villains, not anyone else's. And if "generic" Top 20 lists make you peeved off, then don't read them. Simple as that. And personally I rank Harley Quinn as my all-time favorite female villain too. I'm like 99.99999…% DC fan with a dash of Marvel in there somewhere so I am similar to you in the taste department. And honestly, Black Cat is basically just Marvel copying off of DC's characters (yet again!) because they are both sometimes love interests/villains to their respectful heroes, they both steal, etc. And can you explain to me how Dark Phoenix being extremely powerful and being resurrected multiple times make her the best villainess? She's not in my opinion, just in case you were wondering.
Superb list! I still remember Songbird, aka Screaming Mimi, from an early Dazzler issue.
Awesome list really well done
I love this list except for Harley Quinn. She ruins it for me. I hate her. Yet the media decides to stuff her down my throat because she's in everything!!. . . . . . . That and Viper is my favorite female villain. Otherwise it's good.
@soopacoop16: Last time i checked. I didn't say she ruins the list, she ruins it for me. There's a big difference. However i am not the only one who thinks such, reading above comments. Second mentioning i dislike the character doesn't give you reason to bash me and curse at me. Dislike Viper if you wish we are all entitled to opinion. Third whether or not Viper is on this enumeration doesn't really matter because it is an opinion based list and any merit it has is only based on what it is given by people who read it. Now say if this were IGN or Marvel or a massive collaborated effort, you would have a point. Fourth, I liked the rest of the list, except for those two points.
@soopacoop16: Thank You. I appreciate the apology. It takes a big man to admit that he may have erred. I probably didn't need to retort as violently as i did either. We as hard core fans have a tendency to over react. It is our nature. Regardless thank you again, and i sincerely hope you have a nice day.
