Cant just pick one
In no particular order
The cliche... Magneto and Dr. Doom.
I was going to post them, then I saw somebody already beat me to it. So I will quote you.
Dr. Doom and Magneto may very well be the best characters Marvel has to offer period. My love for Doom was completely solidified when, through sheer willpower, defeated the Beyonder in Secret Wars. And frankly, if I was a mutant, id follow Magneto, no contest.
Probably Doc Doom or Venom. The former simply because he has a pimpin costume design, is constantly awesome in nearly every appearance, and is the prime 'mastermind with minions' villain archetype, imo. The latter simply because of the cool factor - he has one of my favorite villain designs and I've always liked his appearances in other media. Funnily enough, I've never actually read that much of Venom.
Kang the Conqueror - Just finished re-reading Kang Dynasty and Avengers Forever and love how Busiek portrayed him. He is the ultimate general and has conquered a 1,000 worlds throughout time. He has almost as many quotable moments as Von Doom. I love how he is at constant battle to fight his destiny to become Immortus. He is also one of the few to completely conquer the Earth and would have succeeded had it not been his son's infatuation and assistance of Carol Danvers.
Doom and Ultron are a close 2 and 3 for me.
Victor Von Doom.
Intellect equaled only by Reed Richards
Prep feats equaled by only Reed Richards
Magic second only to Doctor Strange and still greater than > Dormammu, Echantress, Morgan Le Fay, Ghost Riders, Brother Voodoo
Willpower greater than everyone on marvel earth resisting Apocalypses mind control, pwning purple man (with amped powers) as well as telling Emma stone her telepathy wont reach his mind. Let alone withstanding battles with the Mad Celestials as well as IG and teams of heroes and villains alike.
Strength to defeat the Hulk, Cosmic Hulk and Thing.
Tech that dwarfs Tony Stark and Hank Pym
Charisma He's a natural born leader and master strategist.
Don't even get me started on feats...
Dont believe me? Just ask Mephisto, Galactus, Reed Richards, Silver Surfer, Asgardians, Dormammu, Marquis of Death, Pre-Retcon Beyonder, The Watcher, Adam Warlock and Magus Pre-Retcon Molecule man, STAN LEE...
It's tough because a lot of villains can have a good deal of appeal. Doom's like an evil-Volstagg, with brains - it's fun to watch him do what he does and read his dialogue and that's what appeals to me. The guy is not only fun, but he's a believable threat, even when lurking in the shadows or doing something "good" - he takes his prize.
