Warning: The following article contains SPOILERS for ALL FILMS currently released within the MCU.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has dominated the box office charts for a decade. They’ve introduced many iconic characters that used to live on the pages of comic books until they were brought to life through film.
The first film released in this new reformatting of the MCU was Iron Man in 2008. Today, nearly 20 films and several TV franchises have been created. Marvel Studios has brought to life many different comics, including several iconic super villains that have captivated audiences everywhere.
In an effort to better understand the evil forces in the MCU, let’s look at the villains ranked from worst to best. This list deals strictly within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, meaning we disregard any villains in the comics that have yet to make an appearance on the big screen. This Marvel Villains list also excludes large chunks of henchmen such as soldiers recruited by HYDRA, or other terrorist organizations. Instead, we concentrate on the masterminds behind the films that create the amazing conflict we’ve all come to love. It should also be known, that this list was created following the release of Black Panther (2018) and before Avengers: Infinity War (2018).
The following Marvel Villains are ranked from Worst to Best. What are your thoughts? Do you agree or disagree with the order of the list? Let us know in the Facebook comments!
31) Karl Mordo: The character of Karl Mordo from Doctor Strange (2016) played by actor Chiwetel Ejiofor remains at the bottom of this list for his lack of actual villainy. It isn’t until the very end of the film (Spoiler alert) that Mordo reveals what his future intentions might be. Perhaps in the follow up to Doctor Strange, we might see him rise to further power.
30) Brock Rumlow aka Crossbones: Played by actor Frank Grillo, the character Crossbones has his moments in the MCU, appearing in both Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Captain America: Civil War (2016), he was ultimately defeated by the Scarlet Witch in Captain America: Civil War. His (presumed) death occurred after the detonation of an explosive which also killed the Wakandan ambassadors, an act that sparked the events leading up to Civil War.
