(Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and The Bookish!)
Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday post of October! This week I’m telling you all about my favourite comic book villains.
I LOVE comic books, and I think that the villains are my third favourite thing about them (my first being strong female characters, my second being the pretty pictures!). But who are my ten favourite villains, you ask?
10) The Joker
Hilarious, confusing and ABSOLUTELY BONKERS, Eye-Scream had the power to turn himself into ANY FLAVOUR OF ICE CREAM.
While this is a power I really would enjoy, being a massive ice cream fan, it seems that the other X-Men all mocked him for his obscure talent, which turned him into the most dangerous villain the universe had ever seen!
(I’m kidding about that bit. They probably just ate him to stop him causing trouble).
Whenever I read Venom in comics, he always gives me goosebumps. I’ve yet to encounter a Venom story that I haven’t enjoyed (and been absolutely terrified by…).
I haven’t read a lot of comics that feature Livewire, but her design alone makes her worthy of being on this list. Looking like a more badass version of Storm of the X-Men, I hope Livewire gets more recognition in the future.
4) Poison Ivy
3) The Punisher
The Punisher is more of a vigilante than a villain, but he’s definitely a criminal. Directly contrasting with the no-murder-allowed attitude of Matt Murdock, Frank Castle seems even more brutal.
2) Harley Quinn
The most badass comic book character, I love Harley because she’s a villain but she’s also a victim. The Joker made her the way she is, and a villain you can empathise with is extremely dangerous.
1) Condiment King
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! Who are your favourite villains, and why?
