20. Bullseye

Bullseye has never been about subtlety, nuance or emotion. He's a killer, through and through, with a disputed history that may or may not be true given some stories being narrated by Bullseye himself. The only clear information fans have at this point is that the man's first name is Lester. The rest

I agree with most of this, especially the top 5.

I do think Mysterio, the Riddler, and Doctor Octopus polled too low though.

And, what the heck? Scorpion isn't on this list at all? Failure.

Magneto surely is one of the best, but I don't know about being the best. But whatever, I'm a comic nub ;-;

Magneto absolutely deserves that #1 spot.

@Bel:

I'm not familiar with the backstory so I would suggest you look it up if you want to know more.

And Carnage's spot is about what it should be, he was never a great villain, more cool than anything else.

Some are a little low I guess, and Joker is probably somewhat better than Magneto, might be a little high. List isn't so bad.

Yeah, but there are quite a few much lamer villains higher than him.

I don't know how old this list is, but Captain America is alive. And Green Goblin wasn't high enough. Same with Grodd.

Overall, this list is very WTF to me.

Joker is not a better villain than Magneto.

Magneto has warred with Charles Xavier and the X-Men for decades, they have never found a way to truly stop him. On top of that, he has spawned an entire family of villains - sons, daughters, grandsons, grandaughters - Magneto vs. the X-Men typifies the most basic struggle of man i.e. fighting for freedom.

There is a lot of inconsistency in this list. While they have a lot of spots that make sense, some should just simply be higher and some just don't deserve to be as high as they are.

For example, William Stryker is number 70, which is behind people like Lizard and Scarecrow. And how the hell did the Juggernaut make top 20?
