Comic Book Question of the Week: 03/12/13 - Favorite Wolverine Villain

Posted by k4tzm4n (35208 posts) - - Show Bio

It's no secret Wolverine's a huge cash cow for Marvel. The aggressive yet lovable X-Man is hugely popular and you can find him in virtually every other comic nowadays. This week, three comics with his name on the cover are coming out. A new series which is simply called WOLVERINE, another brand new series called ULTIMATE COMICS WOLVERINE and there's a new issue of WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN.

So yeah, it's a rather busy week for the adamatium-laced runt. On top of those titles, you can also find him in the pages of SAVAGE WOLVERINE, most X-Men titles and he has a 13 issue digital series coming out soon. Sure, it's easy to complain about his overexposure, but this obviously happens for a reason. Wolverine sells, and that's because he's a dude many people love. As long as he's placed in engrossing stories, I'm all for giving him a packed schedule.

There are so many qualities that make us appreciate Mr. Howlett, but one thing that helps make him especially great are the characters that regularly make his life a living hell. Wolverine has quite a varied rogues gallery over the decades and you can help determine which one will be Comic Vine's favorite. Will his popular rivalry with Sabretooth take it, or will a lesser-known character like Cyber steal the votes? We couldn't flood the poll with all of his enemies, but I'm confident we have the best options provided.

Click here to vote! The poll will be open until Thursday (10am ET) and a feature with the results will be on the homepage shortly after!

I know this is going to sound really lame, but for some reason I really like Dr. Rot...

Creed is an obvious foil, but Cyber is a truly, truly evil villain. He's very underused and has a lot of untapped story potential.

Hmmm. Logan does make a lot of enemies.

@k4tzm4n: So is it my favourite villain to battle Wolverine (which would be Creed) or my favourite character that is known to be a wolverine villain (that would be Deadpool) ??

My fav. 2 were out of that list:

- Old Man Howlet.

- The Red Right Hand.

For different reasons, I think they're some of the Wolverine villians that hit him harder with their actions: Wolverine lost Rose and then his mind after thinking he was safe from his past because of Old Man dying wish, and he lost a lot of unknown sons because of the Red Right Hand.

From the list I guess Sabretooth as he's the classic villian, and I guess I like what they're doing with him lately as he seems a bit more intelligent and cunning.

For me it's a tie between Omega Red and Daken

Actually looked to see if Spider-Man was there. Does any hero annoy Wolverine as much as Spidey? I know he's not a true villain but would be amusing to see how he ranks with the villains.

Nah ... brought it up because he's the only 'close to street leveler' who poses any real threat to Logan. His nemesis on the Comic Vine battle forums if you will.
