I hope you are all having a webtastic National Spiderman Day! As Spiderman's rogue gallery is as extensive as Batman's today I'm going to reveal my top 5 favourite out of all of them. I could have easily placed the Sinister Six on this list however instead I have decided to do the individual villains rather than the main six as one group.
1# Venom and Carnage
I can't separate these two. I love them both for different reasons however I cannot place one above the other. These are arguably Spiderman's two greatest foes. I don't know what it is but I have a fascination with the Klyntar and the symbiotes in the Marvel universe, which is why I'm so hyped for the Venom movie coming out in October. I love carnage's brutality and ruthlessness, he is so strong that even when Venom and Spiderman team up they struggle to defeat him. I also love Venom's power and scare factor that he has about him. Everything about these two creatures is amazing and is by far my top choice.
2# Green Goblin
This is the first live action villain that Spiderman has faced. That first movie featuring Willem Dafoe as the Villain is what triggered my love for this villain. The split personality between Norman and the Goblin is amazing, especially as the Goblin takes over and wreaks havoc. Goblin tortures Spiderman both physically and psychologically and is what makes him a challenging foe as he is superior to spiderman in almost every way. The suit from that film hasn't aged with time very well. Also unfortunately the other incarnations of the villain we have had onscreen haven't been great and is probably the reason the villain doesn't get as much praise as he should.
This character was nearly placed above Green Goblin, which shows how much i like him. First off I need to mention the suit. I think it looks great, from the fish bowl to the purple cape all of it shouts mystery. His powers of illusion and hypnosis are really unique and dangerous to Spiderman and someone the webhead struggles to defeat each time he faces him. If the rumours are true and Jake Gyllenhaal is going to portray the infamous Quentin Beck he really is going to push Tom Holland's Spidey to the limits. I really hope this villain gets more appreciation with the new film as he really is an interesting character.
Doctor Curt Connors is up next as the Lizard. His appearance in The Amazing Spiderman is fantastic, and is what made me love this character. The fact that the Lizard knows exactly who Spiderman is dangerous as he can harm his personal life. Rhys Ifans did a great job portraying this villain and provided the creepy factor to the film as well. He is majorly superior to Spiderman in terms of strength and could probably knock him out with one punch. I really hope this villain becomes in the limelight again soon.
5# Doctor Octopus
This is definitely the most controversially placed villain on this list. Everyone who has watched Spiderman 2 knows what an AMAZING villain Doc Ock is and what an amazing performance Alfred Molina did. I love that movie and the villain, however as a whole I'm not as keen on the villain as everyone else. I still really like him as he's no.5 out of 153 villains (according to ComicVine) that spiderman has. That fight on the subway, and everyone who's watched the film knows exactly what I'm talking about, is one of the best Spiderman moments in cinematic history. His genius along with his huge metal arms places him high above the other villains I've not mentioned. Marvel would be silly to not include him in the MCU and have him form some sort of Sinister Six.
Thank you so much for reading!! I've missed out loads of great villains such as Vulture, Taskmaster ,and Chamaeleon. If anyone could suggest some comic book stories with these characters in we would be extremely grateful. Once again thank you so much for reading and hope you return soon!! :)
