It seems that for every Dr. Doom or Magneto that the Marvel Universe spawns, there are countless other dud super villains that don’t quite make the grade. The Beetle? The Slug? Purple Man? Chances are you haven’t heard of any of these characters because their powers and motives are so lame that the only crime committed was the writers thinking it was a good idea to make them in the first place. So before you go thinking that Stan Lee and the rest of Marvel’s creative talent can do no wrong, have a look at this list of some of the worst villains they’ve ever come up with.
When you’re a famous Spanish bull-fighter and all your fans turn on you for being cruel to animals, what choice do you have but to become evil and use all your bull-fighting knowledge to take revenge on mankind?
