Has a villain became a hero and stayed that way ?

#2 Edited by longbowhunter (8837 posts) - - Show Bio

Hawkeye and Multiple Man immediately spring to mind.

#3 Edited by joshmightbe (26582 posts) - - Show Bio

Hawkeye, Black Widow, Multiple Man, Emma Frost, Quicksilver, Scarlet Witch, Wonder Man (I think he went back), Punisher, Magneto goes back and forth, Doc Samson also tends to go back and forth, Wolverine was technically a Hulk villain in his first appearance, The entire Suicide Squad, Most of the Thunderbolts.

I liked it when the Riddler reformed and became a PI in Gotham. That was really interesting.

I always wondered, did criminal Hawkeye do anything truly villianous in his first appearences? Like did he kill anyone or directly allow other villians to succeed?

@knightrise: Clint was more of a Henchman than actual villain.

Eh, that's why I said almost, and I was mostly reffering to the core Z Fighters.

Punisher was never really a villain, anti-hero

The Vision was created by Ultron to be a villain, but rebelled and joined the Avengers instead.

no, he was criminal when he was young but he had reformed long before he got his powers.

back on the subject Major Disaster and Fatality were villains once.as was Bronze Tiger (although he was mind controlled)

Quicksilver, Hawkeye and Juggernaut.

Magneto, Catwoman, Deathstroke, Black Adam, Namor and Venom tend to go back and forth between good and bad.

Bane also comes to mind he became an anti-hero. I also have seen Rhino do a lot of heroic things in his days...

I loved that period. I wish Riddler would go back to being a PI; it felt like his character was growing.

Last time I checked, trying to be a hero was pretty heroic.

Liking the book or idea really has nothing to do with it. Whether Octopus is a good hero or not, my point is that he's trying to be a hero and therefore he's heroic. Any thoughts on that?
