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.
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....
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. :)
