In honor of Hugo Strange's arrival in the mainstream (Arkham City trailer), I'm going to make a new list for villains who, while not well known, are still highly dangerous. This list will focus on DC and Marvel as I know little about the independents. Also, I don't want this to be strictly my opinion, but I also want suggestions from the community. Let me know what obscure but badass villain or villainess you think deserves more exposure in comics, video games, or movies. I won't start the list until a fair amount of suggestions are made, but there is no hurry.
Even when he first came on the scene he made an impression. He kidnaps Ares' son, brainwashes him, conquers Olympus, and kills Zeus, arguably Marvel's second most prominent Skyfather after Odin. I became a fan when he was simply believed to be the Japanese god of evil, but now his attack on Olympus seems pretty damn minor in comparison to what he's doing now. I admit I'm having a hard time comprehending just how powerful he's become and what he's accomplished. Not since Thanos obtained the Infinity Gauntlet has someone so thoroughly threatened the Marvel Universe. Pretty impressive for a character who's been around less than five years.
I know he's slugged it out with the Hulk, but that doesn't really explain how strong he is considering how strong the Hulk can get. Is there anybody he's roughly as strong as? Thing? Abomination? What level of power is he in?
