Batman tends to straddle along that line...but he would be one awesome villain

Superman, just like from Injustice. But just for a bit.

When Hal Jordan went "rogue" and became Parallax, I went with him. I understood the method of madness that drove him down that road. To me that's what makes the difference, the drive or the reason that makes them a villain. The fall from the greatest height is what makes such a great hero turned tyrant. I'd love to see something that leads Shazam to follow the path of Black Adam, like finding out that it was the wizard that failed his mother and father rather then Black Adam who caused their death leading him down that path of destruction rather then Aquaman having had enough of people making fun of his "talking" to fish. I'd like the actually see Batman finally lose his "stuff" and snap, blaming the world and society for his parents and son's death.

Spider-man in a What If. like, if he went mad with his uncle's death and just became this crazy BAMF villain

I guess it depends on how he's written...there have been plenty of stories where he seems nuts.

e.g.

I've always though Wonder Woman would make for a more interesting villain than hero, especially given her propensity for violence. Particularly I'd want to see the version of the character Frank Miller wrote in All-Star Batman and Robin, the Boy Wonder, in which she's portrayed as a psychotic militant ultra-feminist that Superman has to knock to the floor with his super-breath to end her male-bashing rant.

@rideaspacecowboy: Kinda like her Injustice version? I'd like her a little more calculating and even more manipulative and less of a misandrist; she just called a guy a "sperm bank". WTF? But militant is good. It's very good. I like

Nick Fury

Ultimate or 616? Either way, the things he could do. It would be pretty cool

My pick is John Constantine. He's already a pretty shitty human being as a hero but as a villain, the last shreds of whatever keeps him a good guy (I'm fairly certain it's not altruism) are gone

Phantom Stranger, Deadman

I think any rogue magical heroes would be very scary and very cool to see how the non magic or science heroes tried to stop them

Since im playing Injustice right now all i can think of is Superman, the reality of someone with all that power letting loose is both terrifying and exhilarating! Batman going bad would be wrong for his character, i can maybe see him going a little crazy but turning actively bad just wouldnt feel right, i dont think i can explain why but Batman has to be the good guy.

Marvel on the other hand have been switching their characters from good to evil and back again for years, Jean Grey, Professor X, Cyclops and Angel have all gone bad at some point, Magneto, Emma Frost, Apocalypse have all made the switch to good. I have to say out of all the marvel folks that turned, my favourite was Archangel during the dark angel saga over on X Force, his transformation happend a tiny bit at a time and right under everyone's noses. I also really enjoyed the evil Deadpool in Deadpool kills the marvel universe, behind all the humour and comedy there is a very dangerous killer, its easy to forget when he is so goofy but the guy is insane. Honerable mention goes to Ultimate Reed Richards, the guy makes Dr Doom look like a saint.

@akindoodle 616 & yep he could cause chaos if he went rogue/undetected.

Maybe it's just because I live so close to a college campus, but it seems like over half of all females I know are Women's Studies majors whose hatred of the Y chromosome gives them girlwood every time they see their swiftly rising matriarchal society take a dump all over some poor dude's life. With so many misandrists out in the world today, how is it they there are few if any depictions of such in comics? After all, the best super-villains are mirrors of real life villains.

Definitely Superman. Shazam would be my second choice.

@rideaspacecowboy:

That Wonder Woman comes off as almost a parody -- that's way over the top, lol.

I think someone like Hope would be great as a villain. Or Jan Pym. I am beginning to not like her character...

If only that were the case. Either you don't know a lot of college chicks, or you've somehow landed in a treasure trove of proper women - in which case where do you live, cause I'm moving to your town.

So seeing Batman be a villain against say a good Ra ah Gul and the league of assassins in Gotham is a good twist

@rideaspacecowboy: Because there aren't actually so many misandrists in the world. I'm a college girl and I'm not a misandrist. My sister's not. My friends aren't. My mom's not. So I agree with @lykopis there must be a saturation of man hate in your town. Move out of it. Come to Dublin, we love American boys! That Wonder Woman IS a parody

I always thought Superman's powerset would make him a more interesting villain than hero.

I think Luke Cage's gives him great potential.

Nick Fury and his knowledge of everyone and everything ongoing in the Marvel Universe would make him an inetersting villain who could set up difficult and moral-testing situations for heroes. Or even set coups into play and set up puppet governments to run in the shadows for greater power.
