A hero is only as good a his villain, so the saying goes, but many of our greatest heroes have multiple options to choose from.  Spider-Man’s greatest villain is Doctor Octopus, Wonder Woman’s is Doctor Cyber, Batman’s is Hugo Strange.  These are incontrovertible truths with which there is no argument, so don’t bother (I’m old and opinionated and I’ve known Stephen for 30 years, so there’s no hope in converting me), but the question of which is the greatest villain is entirely up in the air, leading to today’s nefarious query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) has a lot of options, but asks only that if you say The Joker that you show your work, ’cause that guy is annoying, asking: What bad guy or gal is the greatest villain in all pop culture?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

      Or Robert Walker in Strangers on a Train. It would be horrible to be targeted by a helpful sociopath!
