Basically what the title says. Who are your favorite comic book villains? Mine would have to be:
- Unus the Untouchable (you can't beat this guy just by punching at him. You need to use wit and strategy) - The Blob (I've always liked his funny personality) - Electro (his powers are pretty cool) - Venom (I've liked him since I was a kid. I'm not sure if he counts as a villain tho, but whatever) - Shockwave from the transformers (Hey, he was only a badass in the comics, so I guess it counts. I was surprised to see him shown as a badass in issue 5, but he quickly became my favorite decepticon when he beat up Megatron in a godzilla style battle. Unfortunately, he was a lot less badass in later issues because the writers weren't interested in pushing his toy anymore.) - The Anti-Monitor (I've always loved comic book storylines with a lot at stake, and this guy threatened the entire multiverse)

Sorry I was born in China and I grew up with mostly Asian entertainment stuff and I got to know Marvel&DC much later than most Western people.......so my Marvel&DC experience and knowledge is very limited......and I got to know about Marvel&DC mostly by video games not by comic books, because Western comic books were very rare in my China area back in those times......
My "Favorite comic book villains" are these: - Venom => the 1st first time I got to know about Venom was not from a comic book but a Sega arcade video game, "Spider-man the Video Game":
- Darkseid => the 1st first time I got to know about Darkseid was not from a comic book but a Acclaim/Sunsoft/Blizzard Super Nintendo (SNES) video game, "Justice League Task Force":
In fact I am quite happy to see and to have both Venom and Darkseid in MUGEN too.

Probably the concept of Apocalypse (En Sabah Nur) shown in 'The rise of Apocalypse' comic book (Kavanagh/Pollina). I mean, the eldest mutant, very smart and wise and with molecular level control of his body which makes him: 1) a top level strength character plus accelerated healing factor which makes him practically immortal, 2) able to stretch and vary the density of parts of his body, like Mr.Fantastic, Sandman or Venom do, and 3) potentially able copy other powers by learning how the mutation affects the genotype, similar to what Sylar did in Heroes, the TV series (so able to project energy beams, teleport, telepathy, ...).
I think this power is enough to make him a great villain and that he doesn't need the celestial technology or the hoses from the elbows to the belt (what are they for?!). Moreover, the idea of the 'survival of the fittest' and his plan to push the world to select them by a war is quite good.
I would like to see more stories like his origins and, of course, I would like to see an En Sabah Nur char (without celestial paraphernalia) in Mugen, maybe using Monk and Sagat as bases. This char wouldn't turn his arm into a shield, his skin is already a shield. It would be a mix between Hulk, Mr.Fantastic, Havok and Nightcrawler. Cool, isn't it?

Tomando como villano al ser que actua en perjuicio de otros para beneficiarse a si mismo por libre albedrio (Por maldad o por locura) Quicksilver si ha sido Super villano en diversas ocasiones. Cuando Magneto lo reclutó para la Hermandad, cuando abandonó a Crystal por darle una hija "humana" y cuando robó los cristales terragine tras perder sus poderes. Durante estas temporadas se enfrentó a diversos super heroes y no le importó lo que tuviera que hacer para conseguir más poder.
Nightshade desde su primera aparición siempre ha luchado a favor del bien. Yo no contaría "Enemigos Públicos" porque fue controlada mentalmente por Grood. Si tomamos en cuenta a todos los héroes que han sido controlados por supervillanos para hacer cosas malas ninguno se salvaría.
Para mi Black Adam fue un supervillano que formó parte de la JSA, pero eso no lo hizó nunca un héroe.
Lo de mis tres supervillanas fue completamente subjetivo, hay villanos hombres que creo que son geniales, pero como estas 3 ninguno.

well, for me here is the top 3.
venom(eddie brock):i always like him more than carnage, for me he is still the best venom, even through nowadays he is toxin, lol.
the joker:the most problematic nemesis of batman, i dont know why, but this guy its just crazy, wich is kinda badass.
m.o.d.o.k:since MUA, i always through he was a magic tiki head or something(i was not a big fan, back there), but i actually like his version in mvsc3, for me he is really fun to play, so yeah this crazy head is one of my favorites, after all, he beat raccoons for ¡SCIENCE!.
honorable mentions. black adam, poison ivy, dr. doom, shocker, mystique, madrox, green goblin, blackheart, dr octopus, lex luthor, sinestro, magneto, loki, baron "glue mask" zemo, and skeletor... i mean taskmaster.
