*Recommended listening while contemplating who you'll vote for*

Villains Month is officially over and this week we're treated to the second chapter of FOREVER EVIL by Geoff Johns, David Finch and Richard Friend. Now that we've all spent some extra time with the evil characters in the universe, we want to know who your favorite foe is. Would your answer be the same if this question was posed a month ago or has Villains Month changed how you feel about certain fiends? Has it made you like a character less or has it turned you into a fan of someone you never truly cared for? The DC universe is loaded with bad people, so we obviously couldn't fit them all on the poll. If your selection isn't there, go ahead and cast your vote for "other" and tell us who earned your support.

The poll will remain open until Thursday morning (ET). Once the poll is locked, a new article will hit the homepage with the results and more. And, if you want to go the extra mile, go ahead and share with the community some "must read" stories for the character who earned your love. That'll allow other people to potentially check 'em out and see why you dig the character so much. Spread the love villainy, Viners.

I'm afraid that I don't really have a good argument, but there's (more recently) been something about Mister Mxyzptlk that I love....

Mind you, my favourite villain would change depending on when you asked me. I tend to have periods of time when I follow and extensively research specific characters, and you just so happened to catch me on a Mxyzptlk/Superman mood.

Darkseid, the god of evil and ultimate threat for the DC Universe.

Red Lantern Corp look like demons.I

Killer Frost is a mass murderer.

CheetA and Depero appear naked in the comics.

Axis Amerika

The immortal man Vandal Savage

The yellow lantern corp has some scary characters as does the indigo

So... quite afew...

Joker. Greatest villain of all time, in any medium. He can be done wrong, but when he is done right (like when Morrison, Snyder, Miller write him), he is the best.

But I love sooooooo many DC villains! Marvels bad guys have NOTHING on them, as much as I enjoy Marvel currently.

Bane

Deathstroke

Lex Luthor

Darkseid

Sinestro

Riddler

Two Face

Scarecrow

Ra's al Ghul

Zod

Black Adam

Deadshot

Killer Croc

Dr. Hurt

Professor Pyg

The Court of Owls

I could go on and on! Mongul! Brainiac! So many!

My favorite DC villain is actually Ozymandias, but... y'know.

From the regular DC universe... it's hard. I'd say The Joker, Bane, Deathstroke, Scarecrow, Black Adam and Lex make it to the top 5 (not in any praticular order).

#64 Posted by CheeseSticks (2468 posts) - - Show Bio

The Joker hands down!

Anton Arcane he's by far one of the best villains DC has.

#67 Posted by hamlet33 (75 posts) - - Show Bio

Seriously! No love for Harley? She's definitely one of my favorites.

#68 Posted by StMichalofWilson (3819 posts) - - Show Bio

Do we have to do this? I mean, there only one answer to this...

#69 Posted by BWANASIMBA (353 posts) - - Show Bio

Darkseid. I was tempted to vote other and put Killer Croc though. I've always loved him despite how often they make him job to Bats and others in comic books.

The Condiment King! Because nothing is more scary than a man with ketchup and mustard guns. Just imagine the stains Alfred has to wash out of the bat-suit

Sigh...
i hope its not joker. That would be too predictable.

#73 Edited by Wilbertus (330 posts) - - Show Bio

No Joker's Daughter? She's the best thing ever! (This comment brought to you by sarcasm. Sarcasm: "I toooootally mean what I'm saying!")

I did vote for "other" though.

Best comment so far!

One? Seriously? Ugh.

There are so many great villains that I am having a really hard time choosing just one, Darkseid, Sinestro and the Rogues are some of my favorites. However, I think my absolute favorite would have to be a Batman villain.

And yes, I ultimately voted for the Joker. I didn't want to, but I just couldn't resist. As much as I love Scarecrow, Two-Face and Riddler, Joker tops them all in my mind. He got me into comics in the first place.

#76 Edited by ravisher (690 posts) - - Show Bio

Sinestro

#77 Posted by TheCannon (18671 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted Other (Hush).

Killer Croc

Took the words right out of my mouth.

No Court of Owls? Maybe they're too new.

I voted for the Crime Syndicate. They've always intrigued me. I'd say the go-to read for them is Morrison and Quitely's JLA: Earth-2. I think I first saw them in the animated Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, which I really enjoyed.

I feel like Black Adam and Sinestro are underrated, as are most villains in this poll, apparently.

Seriously, though? Joker?

Never underestimate Batman's fan base, I guess.

#83 Edited by CrashBang (120 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't believe Scarecrow's not on the list. He takes my vote because of Hurwitz's great job with him on Batman: TDK and the brilliant version of him in Arkham Asylum.

#84 Posted by sagejonathan (1953 posts) - - Show Bio
Sinestro

#85 Posted by XImpossibruX (5174 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker

#86 Posted by UltimateSMfan (1416 posts) - - Show Bio

I have so many favorites! Riddler,Joker,Darkseid,Doomsday.....but at top my list, well, who else could it be...

#87 Posted by MadeinBangladesh (6862 posts) - - Show Bio

So obvious Joke is gonna win.

#88 Posted by AWeekInGeekdom (229 posts) - - Show Bio

I like 'em all but I was stuck between my two go to baddies, Riddler and Black Adam... ultimately went with BA.

#89 Posted by butters911 (261 posts) - - Show Bio

I voted for Darkseid, but we all know the Joker will win

#90 Edited by EnigmaLantern (763 posts) - - Show Bio

@citizenbane: So would you recommend it to a relatively new reader and Superman fan whose never read about Darkseid (in comics, that is)?

#91 Posted by EnigmaLantern (763 posts) - - Show Bio

@shadowswordmaster: Do you have any Doomsday pictures similar to that Lex Luthor one? Or even Darkseid? Simply because that cover/pic looks epic. (Please)

Joker will win, but I vote Luthor.

#94 Edited by Jayc1324 (12203 posts) - - Show Bio

So obvious joker will win, just goes to show how awesome batman and his characters are.

Brother Blood really should of gotten a villain's month under Animal Man. He's only been in two issues but he's really laying it on and proving to be a threat to Buddy Baker's way of life.

This would have been awesome and a great opportunity to bring new readers to Animal Man but DC had to give us The Joker's Daughter instead.

I had a hard time choosing my favorite villain. But it all came down to Darkseid and The Joker in the end, but then I spotted a name, a bad ass to be exact, then I remembered I'd probably pick him over both of Darkseid and Joker. this bad ass is Deathstroke, the definition of toughness and skill. Deathstroke rules!! don't make this a popularity thing. choose with your heart.

look at me!!

#98 Posted by BattheMan008 (309 posts) - - Show Bio

Luthor, Joker, Black Adam, and Riddler.

#99 Posted by Booster_Bronze (204 posts) - - Show Bio

My choice is Space Hitler himself, Thaal Sinestro.

#100 Edited by Black_Arrow (3136 posts) - - Show Bio

So hard to pick I chose Bane but Lex is a close second
