Ranking the Marvel Villains: From Worst to Best

The last time I wrote this post was in March of this year which was a full month before Avengers: Infinity War came out. Now, with the Marvel year over and a few new villains under the franchise’s belt it’s time to update this ranking.

20. Malekith

Malekith is still the worst villain in Marvel.

19. Ronan the Accuser

While Guardians of the Galaxy will always remain as one of my favorite Marvel films Ronan is just…corny.

18. Yellow Jacket

I like Yellow Jacket’s suit, I don’t like the man within the suit. He was way too cliché and that can be a problem.

Who’s Your Favorite Marvel Villain?

This week has passed and that means it’s time for another weekly Who’s Your segment. Last week I asked you all who was your favorite classic Star Wars character and this week I’m excited to see which Marvel villain is the one you happen to enjoy the most. Here are all of the villains.

Ronan the Accuser

mv5bmjexnzkxmjmzmv5bml5banbnxkftztgwodkxotmymje-_v1_-1.jpg

Ronan was a slightly corny villain but that’s what made him so perfect for Guardians of the Galaxy. He was still a worthy adversary though as he nearly destroyed Xandar and was able to wield the might of the Power Stone. Thankfully the Guardians were more powerful than him though. 🙂

General “Thunderbolt” Ross

The anti-Hulk, that could’ve made for a very compelling and intimidating villain. While I don’t remember The Incredible Hulk very well I do remember this villain because he definitely was scary looking. Too bad the movie wasn’t better. *shrug*

Malekith

MV5BMTYyMDA0NjcxNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTU5MDMxMDE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,1503,1000_AL_.jpg

Malekith definitely wasn’t anywhere near the most compelling MCU villain but he did provide Thor and Loki plenty of anguish as he managed to kill off Thor’s mother.

Ranking the Marvel Villains: From Worst to Best

Marvel, throughout its decade long run, have had some memorable villains and then some rather lackluster antagonists at the same time. Unfortunately, Marvel is more known for having terrible bad guys with one-dimensional agendas rather than having enticing antagonists that really push these heroes to the test. Thankfully, after the last few films the villains in Marvel are getting a better wrap than they once did but there’s still work to be done. So, on that note, I’m going to provide you my ranking of the seventeen Marvel villains so far.

17. Malekith

MV5BMTYyMDA0NjcxNl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTU5MDMxMDE@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,1503,1000_AL_.jpg

Malekith is definitely the worst Marvel villain. When I watched Thor: The Dark World I was flabbergasted by how laughable his ideals and his plan for universe domination was. Malekith was 100% corny and I have nothing more to say.

16. Ronan the Accuser

mv5bmjexnzkxmjmzmv5bml5banbnxkftztgwodkxotmymje-_v1_-1.jpg

I literally just watched Guardians of the Galaxy yesterday after not having seen it for quite a while and Ronan was definitely not a great villain. He was powerful, nothing more, but his corny aspect was perfect for the film and at least he was a rather formidable foe.

15. Yellow Jacket

MV5BMDIwNDY3N2ItMzIxMy00NTJiLThhNjQtNjlhOTMxODcwNzhmXkEyXkFqcGdeQXVyNTc3MjUzNTI@._V1_.jpg

Yellow Jacket was laughable. He was cynical, wanted to become the hero of humanity, and everything that a cliché villain is. Yellow Jacket is as forgettable as they come and that’s why he’s so low on this list.

Where Does Hela Rank Among The Marvel Villains?

While the Marvel Cinematic Universe has spewed entertaining movies for the past nine years most of the films have shared one nagging problem; the villains have been very lackluster. So much work has gone into the development of the heroes that the villains are just annoying baddies. They’re not complex, they’re not scary, they’re just…the bad guys. And that does make sense because most of the villains didn’t make it through more than one film but after nine years you begin to get tired of the constant trend of boring antagonists. Well, lately the villains have been a little better and after Hela debuted in Thor: Ragnarok there was no way I wasn’t going to write a post determining where she stands amidst the other villains throughout all seventeen films. Enjoy!

1. The Vulture

MV5BNTcwMjIxNTE2OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNzYyMzM4MjI@._V1_SX1777_CR0,0,1777,738_AL_

I didn’t really know anything about Michael Keaton except that he was the first epic Batman but after Spider-Man: Homecoming I am an even bigger fan of the fantastic actor. Part of the reason why Spider-Man: Homecoming was such a marvelous movie is that the villain was just as complex as the hero. Mr. Toomes was a simple blue collar man who provided for his family with his wreckage cleanup business but Tony Stark ripped the floor out from underneath him by taking over the duty of cleaning up after the Avengers. It was this heartless move that turned Toomes into a weapon dealer for the black market and can you blame him? I mean if you look at it from a different point of view you can say that Iron Man and Spider-Man were the villains and that Mr. Toomes was the real hero of the film. We of course root for Spider-Man though because how can you not but it’s still an interesting observation.

And not only did he have a complex and believable story in the movie but his Vulture suit was also rather cool. And the best thing about it, he didn’t die, and a post-credits scene has already hinted at him returning to the MCU…with the help of a mysterious friend. That’s even more exciting and I can’t wait to see him again.

The Women of Thor: Ragnarok

Thor: Ragnarok is a fun film, through and through, and what really helped this movie shine were the new female additions to the MCU. Valkyrie was spunky, tough, and she wasn’t one to mince words while Hela was frighteningly powerful, merciless, beautiful in a Goddess of Death sort of way and a great villainess for the film. I absolutely loved these awesome, strong women and I am here to talk, in full detail about them. Enjoy!

Valkyrie

She never lagged behind Thor and gawked at him, it was more of the other way around, and she wasn’t your average female heroine. Most heroines, while strong, are used mainly as love interests in films but Valkyrie was not used in this way at all. While Thor did crush on her throughout the film and she began to obtain some feelings for the short-haired, musclebound god of thunder towards the end of the film that wasn’t the main focus of her role in the movie. She was an actual character with an actual story that made her an incredible asset to Thor’s special team, The Revengers. Continue reading The Women of Thor: Ragnarok
