I like a lot of villians. Theyre more compelling to me, and more flawed. Especially those who curb the line between full blown villian and anti-hero, like Sinestro, Black Adam, pre new 52 Jason Todd, and Magneto. Plus ultra ideologists like Joker and Two-Face. Crazy is awesome.

depends on the hero and the villain for instance Dr. Doom is far cooler that Mr. Fantastic but Penguin is nowhere near as cool as Batman

There are some pretty great and interesting villains that I like, but I'll always love the superheroes a lot more.

I always root for the villain, in almost every medium.

#11 Posted by Liara (421 posts) - - Show Bio

it depends.

There are some villains I like more than some Heroes but there are also some Heroes I prefer over some villains.

nope ur not the only one, in fact all of my favorites are villains only

#13 Posted by StuckOnEuropa (118 posts) - - Show Bio

I prefer Batman over Joker, Captain Marvel over Black Adam, Superman over Lex Luther and Spider-man over

Green Goblin.

I'm having a hard time thinking of a villain I prefer over the hero.

Hell no! Tons of folks prefer supervillains.

Beast Boy is the greatest comic character of all time so it's heroes, even now that he's red... I hate DC

really? him? ugh. you have really low standards for superheroes.

I tend to like villains, but I like heroes too. It depends on the character/design/powers I suppose.

#18 Posted by ssejllenrad (12847 posts) - - Show Bio

Villains tend to be much cooler cause they are not as constrained as the goody-goody side.

Heroes, by their nature, tend to be reactionary. Villains are the true movers and shakers.

#24 Posted by ssejllenrad (12847 posts) - - Show Bio

It's not an absolute thing as there are some heroes that are much cooler than villains but it's more of a majority thing.

  • Sith > Jedi
  • Empire > Republic
  • Klingon > Federation
  • Goa'uld > SG-1
  • Moriarty > Sherlock
  • Zeon > Federation
  • Mordor/Isengard > Gondor/Rohan
  • Helghast > ISA
  • Sephiroth > Cloud
  • Magneto > Charles
  • Dr. Doom > Mr. Stretchy face
  • Dark Phoenix > Green Phoenix
  • Void > Sentry

The list goes on and on and on....

Always had more of a fascination with the villain than the hero ever since I was a kid.

Doc Ock with Spidey.

Joker with Batman.

Lex Luthor with Superman.

Shredder with TMNT. ect ect.

Well, My favorite characters from both universes are Evil. So I think evil. But if it makes it better, neither of them would be created if their hero counter parts weren't made.

#27 Posted by Strider92 (16151 posts) - - Show Bio

As far as i'm concerned my general trend is: 
Anti-Hero's (Spawn, Midnighter, Scarlet Spider etc..) > Villains>Heros

What a sweeping generalization.

Villains are cooler because they set their own rules. But good guys are the best.

@DoctorOctopus: How can you say Doc Ock is cooler than Spiderman? I could understand Venom or Lizard even Green Goblin but Ock?

I mentioned a fascination more than I think who's cooler. However, the early 1990's Spidey comics certainly have an influence on me as that's essentially when I became a regular reader and was coincidentally the time where Ock was typically wearing Armani suits, sported a adamantium harness, beat the stuffing out of the Professor Hulk/Iron Man, was involved with Stunner (virtual body and all, but what a virtual body!), and admittedly, I always liked how Erik Larsen and Mark Bagley draw Ock. :)

I personally prefer superheroes in general although there are a few villains that I like better.

Depends on who they are and the hero you're comparing them to for me.

Villains are boss, but I very rarely actually want them to win. Because, you know... They're villains.

There are a few exceptions, like Moon Knight, Martian Manhunter, Iron Man, and Punisher; but for the most part I typically like the villains more than heroes.
