    Seeing as even a clue would give it away, I'll just say this is an interesting and dramatic series of picks.

    Top Five Comic Book Movie Villains
    1) Magneto
    2) Lex Luthor (Hackman, obviously)
    3) Loki
    4) Joker (Nicholson, not Ledger)
    5) Doctor Octopus

    Honorable Mention: Winter Soldier for the fight scenes, General Zod, Mr. Glass, Mr. Freeze, "The Mandarin" (Yeah, deal with it)
    Dishonorable Mention: DP in Wolvie Origins, Nuclear Man, Sharon Stone in Catwoman

    2. Dr. Zander Rice (Logan)
    3. The Joker (Ceasar Romero, obviously)
    4. General KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!!!!

    I'm not that into superhero movies so don't judge my list

    1) Joker
    2) Scarecrow
    3) Bane
    3) Green Goblin
    4) Dr. Octopus
    5) Penguin

    Also, never seen any of these movies before.
    Hoping the one I voted for stays in the lead it looks interesting.

    Edit* Imagine I knew how to count to five?

    The list is comic book movie villains but I would assume this also includes just comic book super villains.

    Ming the Merciless
    Magneto
    Loki
    Grandmaster (Jeff Goldblum)
    Penguin (Burgess Meredith)

    Not so many superhero movies have memorable villains.

    I would formally wish to change my nr 1 pick.

    The Greatest Comic Book Movie Villian is obviously Asshole Superman from Superman 3.

    [​IMG]

    Correcting the leaning tower of Pisa is just evil, man. Truly decrepit.

    All the dude wants is to have his face on the 1-dollar bill. Can't argue with that motivations.

    No idea machine-tentacles had such a fanbase.

    Wow, I thought Ming was based on pulp stories. No idea it was a comic initially.

    Having Von Sydow play him was a stroke of brilliance. Easily the best thing about that movie.

    We should just have listed everyone that appeared in Batman 1966. Freaking Otto Preminger was Mr. Freeze in that series. Though he never appeared in the film.

    [​IMG]

    Yup, weak line-up no matter how you dice it.

    It was a newspaper comic originally I think and then a movie serial. Ornella Muti as Ming's daughter and Brian Blessed as prince Vultan are perfect in their roles too.

    Mr. Freeze was awesome! Otto Preminger got pretty damn weird in 60's. Have you seen Skidoo?

    Ever seen the original serial? The guy playing Vultan was magnificent in the role too.

    Seen it? I still have that freaking skidoo-jingle stuck in my brain!

    [​IMG]

    Man skidoo was a strange film. Why was Grauco Marx playing Howard Hughes?

    The late 60's had its fair share of films like this. Hollywood just lost it's freaking mind to get that hippie-money. Studio producers dropped acid for the first time and tried being hip with the kids by making drug movies. Wow.

    Skidoo, Candy, The Phynx... even God-Emperor Roger Corman got in on the trend with Gas (Or, It Became Necessary to Destroy the World in Order to Save It).

    Strange Days. Strange Days indeed.
