After having kept up with Avengers Arena and now the Infinity: The Hunt series I realized that their are a lot of new young heroes coming out of the wood works in Marvel. But I don't really see that many new villains to match them. It usually falls down the path of introduce new teen hero, than bring up old villain (Looter, Shocker, Trapster etc.) for them to whip on and show how great they are. I know most of the villains are classics and newer ones don't tend to do that well, but do you think they need to aid newer villains as well to mix it up. And not just ones that work off of the Hobgoblins new villain rental program.
Does Marvel Need New Villains?
I could see the potential/ideas of a few villains. However the question is asked the wrong way. They question should be does this story with character X need a new antagonist or can we use an old. Which will have the best effect of the story told. In some cases it will be in favour for an old character in some for a new. In must cases I believe it would be in favour of an old one. However characters like Iron Man and Daredevil could use new once or at least a heavy updating of the old characters.
Yes they could use some new meat, it's been a while since i've seen any newly introduced villains stick around. But DC could use new Villains too, but they've at least been trying, they should also both introduce new heroes or have some of their young heroes actually grow up and become the main group of heroes in the universe.
