I think the Joker gets too much credit. He's great but Batman has other awesome villains that aren't as played out.

Yeah, I put in a vote for Thanos as well. I actually quite like Thanos, but he's given too much credit under his own power.

Apocalypse is way overrated. Guy launches useless schemes and then has to take a nap for a few decades. Yea really someone to worry about here.

I just got finish reading all the Secret Invasion books and I have to say the Skrulls. All I heard was how smart and sneaky and strong they were and with pretty much every advantage you could get in war they failed horribly. The humans were even fighting each other part of the time and they still won. I'm sorry but when you have key spots(the replacements they made), the people you attack are at their weakest(secret war, house of m, civil war, WWH, and losing Cap and Thor), and you you have the element of surprise, yet you still get your a** handed to you, you get knocked down more then a few levels in my book

Gotta agree with the Thanos & Apocalypse comments.

Hush and Dr Hurt. 
New villains are hard to get right.

#11 Posted by llagrok (694 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanos, though people have already mentioned him. 
I don't think Apocalypse is that overrated though, it's so up and down. Some people think he can't handle the x-men, where as others mean he could solo the Justice League. People get different impressions of him and his power level I suppose. Tyrant gets overrated a LOT.

Idk to me Hush is one of Batman's best (before he decided to look like Bruce). I'd say Jason Todd. I love the early version of Red Hood but somewhere in between the end of battle for the cowl and Batman and Robin he became too crazy and it seemed everyone was trying to make him the new Joker or something.

Apocalypse  is super overrated for me 
mostly because he's overused 
as it most of the X-portion of the marvel U

#18 Posted by Xi Felix (802 posts) - - Show Bio

The Void.
#19 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3868 posts) - - Show Bio
@Xi Felix:
yeah, for someone who was hyped up as much as he was 
he didn't really do all that much evil 
I mean, he was a terrible threat, I guess 
but he never really got to do all that much 
oh well, at least he's gone......for now......
#20 Posted by Xi Felix (802 posts) - - Show Bio
Yeah. He defeats Molecule Man, and destroys Asguard, but gets taken out......by a Helicarrier? (Hahahaha)

As far as I'm concerned, Killer Croc has always been overrated(yes, even now). He's a cannibal with severe egsima.

Damnit people, the Void is a great villain, when he actually follows the rules Jenkins laid out; ie: he is a separate entity. Bendis is an idiot that can't write team books. Siege is the worst comic ever written. The end. Move on.

Yeah, I liked Joker better when I just thaught of him as just another one of Batman's villains. He was one of my favorites, but I wasn't like "OMG, the Joker! Batman's best, most important villain!" He really steals the spotlight. When I went back and rewatched some 90's Batman series, I was kind of disapointed by his episodes, since I had this impression built up in my mind since I'd last seen it.

I also say Apocalypse.
He's always doing something like getting punked by Stryfe or making idiotic decisions like making angel the leader of his horsemen. ANGEL, IT'S A DUDE WHO FLIES. Come on 'poccy, what kind of idiot are you?

Darkseid, Lex Luthor, Annihilus (granted if it wasn't for him Nova wouldn't be so bad ass), The Magus, Magneto (are you good or evil pick one please) those are just a few off the top of my head.

Sentury, Norman Osborn, Sinestro, Captain Marvel

#50 Posted by The Hooded Hero (1068 posts) - - Show Bio

I guess really there is alot of them. 
For Spiderman I think it would be Green Goblin and Venom. They really got to much play. Then with the Green Goblin it almost seems like they dont know where to stop. Considering they had the Grey goblin and I cant remember what his sister was calling himself. Thats just taking it to far.

Batman I honestly do think that Joker is the most sinister being in the DC universe but he would be even better if they didnt use him as much as they did. Considering Batman has even more deadlier villians in his rogue than anybody. Take Killer Croc and Man-Bat. I would like to see Killer Croc get used more. It would be awesum but would never happen if Man-Bat could somehow take control when he was a monster and then find Killer Croc and make a team. 
Then for the X-Men I think Magneto got way to much credit. Honestly he isnt that bad of a bad guy if you really think about it. Apocalypse Favorite villian for the X-Men. Did he get to much play yea he did but you know what hes the best mutant villian they have. I really wish they would make somebody worse than Apocalypse though. Somebody older.
