Marvel is amazing. This has already been established, but they've got some really bizarre characters. Today we're going to explore some of the villains that probably shouldn't have been.
The Hyperion is mainly a hero, but there is also an alternate version of himself from Earth-712 who is, in fact, a villain.
Hyperion himself isn't all that bad, although he is a little overpowered for my taste. The reason he is on this list is because he's basically a cheap knock off of Superman. He has nearly unlimited super-strength, super-speed, flight, high resistance to injury, and has laser vision. All of these traits apply to Superman. All he needs is freeze-breath and X-Ray vision.
So, I put him on the list because he's a knock off, not because he's lame. That's why he's only number 10.
Simply... the head. Egghead is an evil genius who is bent on destroying Ant-Man, but never really succeeds in anything. Sorry, but we already have plenty of super-evil-master-minds. We don't need this guy.
Plantman was a botanist who got fired because he failed at his job too many times. He took up his powers and sought revenge.
First of all, not a very creative character. His name had no work put into it at all. I mean, Plantman? Seriously? Why not Wild-Vine or The Vine? And his suit could've been better, much better.
He's pretty much DC's, Poison Ivy. Just a whole lot worse.
7.) Straw Man
Marvel... I love ya', I really do, but you've got to stop with your knock-offs!
Straw Man is a being who accesses our dimension by passing through a painting of himself. He is a complete knock-off of DC's, Scarecrow! Right down to his projection of fear and his mental control of crows. The only difference is that he can incarnate himself into bodies of straw.
6.) The Headmen
The Headmen are a group of mutated and/or cyborg geniuses who believe that the rest of humanity should die because they're not worthy to live among them.
There is little explanation needed for these guys. You can just tell they're some of the weirdest villains in all of the Marvel universe.
The Mandrill was mutated in his mother's womb and was born a monkey. Well, ape. He is obsessed with overthrowing the American government.
His powers are, and I quote from the Marvel Encyclopedia, "The ability to emit powerful pheromones which give him the power to attract and enslave adult women causing them to submit to his will." end quote... that's a very weird power. Making women fall in love with an ape? Uh, okay...
4.) Sugar Man
Sugar Man is one of if not the most bizarre villains ever, period. He operated a slave camp in Seattle in the future and made a nation of mutant slaves on the island of Genosha.
His powers are as follows: Super Strength and reflexes, four arms, razor sharp extendible tongue, and he can control his body's size and mass at any given time.
Personally, I like M.O.D.O.K. He's definitely very weird though so he makes the list. His name, M.O.D.O.K., stands for Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. He was created by A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) to analyze the Cosmic Cube.
Which, if you think about it, is really weird itself. He was designed for analyses =, but his name states that he's designed only for killing. Something isn't adding up here...
The head band he dons allows him to teleport to all A.I.M. bases and his hover-chair provides flight and weaponry. He has super mental and psionic powers to accompany his computer-like brain.
Stilt-Man stole his stilt technology and became a failure of a criminal quickly thereafter. He can extend the legs of his armor up to 60 feet and has various weapons built into his armor as well.
Alrighty then, Stilt-Man, he's pathetic. His legs can't even bend when he walks!!!! That's pretty dumb. Design flaw, dude! Plus his roll-cage is pretty weird lookin'.
Stilt-Man continued to try and be successful at crime until he was killed by the Punisher. Go Punisher! He's one of my favorites and not just because he killed Stiltsy, either.
And now, our honorable mentions!!!
And now, ladies and gentlemen, the long awaited winner of weirdest Marvel villain ever:
1.) Doctor Bong
Okay, this dude is a Howard the Duck villain... so he's bound to be dumb. He was bullied as a child and became a supervillain to get revenge on the world.
This guy's powers are so stupid! He literally bangs his metal ball hand on his noggin as hard as he can to emit sonic waves... Yeah, that's what he does.
Annnd... he fights people for cotton candy.
So, did I do alright? Did I miss any, or are there any you think shouldn't be on here? Let me know below!
Who do you think deserves the title, " Weirdest MARVEL Villain" ?
What should my next Top Ten list be?
Hope you enjoyed!
