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
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.
"Hush and Dr Hurt. New villains are hard to get right. "
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.
" @Nerx said:say what?????
" Darkseid ""
one of the most powerful evil beings in the universe
who's put our entire planet in peril more times that Brett Michael's has bandanas
who has been searching his entire existance for the Anti-life equation
who can beat Superman in a fight
who has eyebeams that kill jsut about anything
uh, say what?
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 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.
