Green Goblin is probably the greatest but he isn't my favorite.

I personally vote Ultron as greatest, he has an eminent meaning in his creation mixed with prodigious power and knowledge.

Darkseid is....not pleased that he's not on this list

I voted for Thanos. Magneto is a strong second behind him

Magneto

Joker

Lex Luthor

Doom

(Darkseid, and Galactus should be choices too)

@wolverine08: @hart7668: The reason I did not put Doctor Doom is and Darkseid because there track record is on and off.

Soo, what are we going on then? The degree of darkness in their hearts or the cruelty they have actually committed? If the former, well, Darkseid is considered a "god of evil" in the DC universe. Nothing he does is for good, only to serve himself. If the latter, well, Cassidy has killed his thousands, Darkseid has killed his billions, if not more.

As far as the aforementioned breakdown goes, even Thanos has at one point sought redemption (hell, I have the tpb titled: "Thanos: Redemption"). Darkseid would never do that.

But, can't help it now :p Thanos is tied with DS as my favorite villain, so...he still gets my vote.

There's two, and they both share the number 1 spot

The World's Fiendest

That's brilliant!! Yes these two all the way.

@hart7668: Darkseid is not on the list. The new 52 ruined the character. He became more like Mongul. Darkseid is a villain who killed hundred billions, just to correct you on that. Darkseid is the most evilest, but not the greatest.

My favorite is Joker...but this is just a terrible set of options. Where's Darkseid, Galactus, Sinestro, Bane, Doctor Doom, Professor Zoom, Riddler, Ra's Al Ghul, Deathstroke, The Rogues, Doomsday, Two-Face, Scarecrow, Parallax, or about a thousand others?

#26 Posted by Givemefreedom (359 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker is the best, no doubt AT ALL.

#27 Edited by Jonez120 (6429 posts) - - Show Bio

Loki!!!

Why does The Joker have like five entries on this list but Loki is nowhere to be seen?

You sir are a crime against humanity.

#28 Posted by Jphu8414 (4041 posts) - - Show Bio

I can just imagine Lex seeing himself winning the poll and just smirking smugly

#29 Posted by ImTheDamnBatman (3973 posts) - - Show Bio

@judasnixon: Lmao.

OT: Lex Luthor is the greatest villain to grace a comic book's page.

#30 Posted by MaccyD (5521 posts) - - Show Bio

From your list, I chose Red Skull/Green Goblin.

#31 Edited by Jayc1324 (16749 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker obviously...

#32 Edited by lesterlawton (1069 posts) - - Show Bio

Dr. Doom. The Joker, however, gets my vote for most overrated villain. If he made it to the Marvel Universe somehow, he'd be dead within a week.

#33 Posted by sagejonathan (2213 posts) - - Show Bio

I think the best is probably Magneto, but my favorite is Sinestro.

#34 Posted by Beware_My_Power (4536 posts) - - Show Bio

ZOOOOOOOOOM... is not on this list... :(

#35 Posted by entropy_aegis (15984 posts) - - Show Bio

Lex Luthor,Darkseid,Red Skull,Magneto and Joker are the 5 best villains in comics imo,not necessarily my favourites though.

#36 Posted by TDK_1997 (15870 posts) - - Show Bio

The top villains that come to my mind and which will always be the top villains of both publishers are:Darkseid,Joker,Lex Luthor,Magneto,Doom and Red Skull.Those are the evilest minds DC and Marvel have to offer us.

#37 Posted by sinestro_GL (3505 posts) - - Show Bio

Lex. Always Lex.

In many ways, Lex Luthor should appeal greatly to Batman fans (via the "he's only a man" argument)

#38 Posted by JakeN7 (14922 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker by himself is listed twice. He would be winning if the votes weren't split.

I kind of want to say Loki but I feel like the movies and stuff have kind of whored him out.

the poll options are extremely bad.

#45 Edited by Prototypehydra (75 posts) - - Show Bio

Tough choice between Magneto & Venom, ultimately I chose Magneto. He's not your stereotypical villain, which is why I like him and consider him to be the greatest of all time. He's always upheld a certain code of honor, which seems rare with villains these days. He had a vision for a world fit for Mutants, which he chose to pursue, mostly in a rather villainous way, but in his mind, was the righteous way.
