# 9 gorr the hunter of the gods
Fairly new super villain in the Marvel Universe, having first appeared in the Marvel Universe in Thor: God of Thunder # 2 in 2013. Gorr was born on a “nameless” planet and has always despised his people’s belief in the gods. Life on the planet is unwelcome. Every day she experiences a devastating famine.

# 8 Tiphoid Mary
After Mary Walker, who later became Tiphoid Mary, had a tragic childhood, particularly with her father molesting her, she developed mutant powers to fight against her father’s violence. After she violently attacked him, his father never touched him again. However, this took its toll on Mary as she developed an extremely violent quirk while being gentle and cooperative by nature. She ended up in a mental hospital where her dissociative identity disorder was identified. The second character she developed was named “Tiphoid” because of her permanent fever.
Magneto No. 7
Erik Lensherr, AKA Magneto, is a villain in the X-Men universe. Forcibly separated from his parents during the Second World War, his forces manifested themselves in a panic caused by the violence of German soldiers. The Nazi collaborator Sebastian Shaw, who murdered his mother, wants Erik’s powers to appear in anger and hatred. Gnawed by the desire for revenge, he in turn murdered the Nazis after World War II in order to find his mother’s murderer. The meeting with Charles Xavier after an assassination attempt on Shaw who tried to provoke a nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union is inextricably linked. However, his desire for revenge has not been dampened and he will want to exterminate all homos erectus in order to establish a new order dominated by mutants, which will lead to the confrontation with the clan of Charles Xavier.
# 6 red skull
Red Skull, former great leader of HYDRA, was Captain America’s great enemy during World War II. Red Skull was convinced of Adolf Hitler and actually had other plans. He believed that the supermen who injected themselves with the super serum were destined to rule the earth and therefore no longer cared about the image of Aryan perfection introduced by the Führer. He even had plans to overthrow him and take his place. As the guardian of the soul stone on Vormir, Red Skull becomes completely indifferent to the deadly question, as his attitude towards Thanos and Gamorra, but also towards Black Widow and Hawk Eye shows. He has become like a kind of spirit destined to guard the stone of the soul.
# 5 Mystical
The born Raven Darkholme is a mutant who can transform into any person. Her parents were afraid to go to school because others were afraid of her transfer and tried to kill her as they too were afraid of her strength. Then she meets Charles Xavier, who will take her under his wing before joining Magneto’s cause.
# 4 Lex Luthor
Enemy number 1 of Super-Man, but also of all of DC Comics. Lex Luthor’s trademark is doing several things at the same time. Corrupt businessman, mad scientist or even megalomaniac super villain. He was even elected president and later found a job in the Justice League. However, his ambition has always been the same: to bring down Superman and take his place to prove to the world that he is the best.
# 3 carnage
Coming soon in Venom 2: Let There Be Carnage, Carnage is a symbiote very similar to Venom’s. Unlike the latter, however, Carnage has always been bad and has always been a psychopath as he was literally born in a mental hospital. Which isn’t really the case with Venom, who has become more of an antihero than a true supervillain in the comics.
# 2 joker
The legendary super villain, the Joker, is Bruce Wayne’s main enemy. Psychopath, he commits countless crimes, always with the same process. By making known which victim he will kill and by what means, he is always one step ahead of his opponents because in the end he will poison his victims.
# 1 THANOS
Undoubtedly the most famous of this tip and above all the craziest ally. With his desire to wipe out half the universe in order to restore “balance”, Thanos is high on our list. If he needs all the Infinity Stones collected on the Infinity Glove to destroy half the population, he will stop at nothing and make them carry out cold-blooded massacres and even kill his daughter Gamorra to get the Soul Stone back.
