After nearly six months, I'm bringing You Cast the Villain back!
For those of you unfamiliar with the background of this idea, I could definitely see either The Masters of Evil or The Thunderbolts making their way to the MCU by phase 4, so I wanted to get ahead of the hype and have us do our own Movie Pilot casting of some of the suspected future villains. Being that I never got around to finishing my Masters of Evil casting (after Baron Zemo got cast in the upcoming Civil War, I lost my vigor, despite the fact that I was right about the villain), we'll pick up with them and move on to the Thunderbolts after a while. Starting with Madame Masque!
Some history, if you don't know much about this lovely villainess, Giuletta Nefaria:
After revealing her true parentage, Whitney was forced to work for her father, Count Luchino Nefaria. She became the leader of the Maggia under the codename "Big M". She attempted to infiltrate Stark Industries using her charms to seduce S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Jasper Sitwell. Her plans went awry as she actually developed romantic feelings for Sitwell. Her plans also further fell apart as she was involved in an accident and her face was permanently disfigured. She became affiliated with Mordecai Midas and acquired a golden mask to cover her scarred face. This resulted in another code name for her: Madame Masque.
She also had some fling with Tony Stark too. Interestingly, she had a hand in the Civil War storyline:
Madame Masque was hired by the Hood to take advantage of the split in the superhero community caused by the Superhuman Registration Act. She became the Hood's second in command and helped him and his followers in the fight against the New Avengers but was taken down by Doctor Strange and taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody.
Some fan theories have suggested that Agent 33, from Agents of SHIELD may be a revamped version of Madame Masque, but I don't buy that so, until that's official news, we'll do our own fan casting right here. Keep the votes coming and the comment civil, as always.
