This post is for the unsung bad guys in comic books.

While there are many great villains I love to see in books, some get to over exposed.

I’m looking at you Magneto, Venom, and Lex Luthor. Especially Venom, when he first debuted, he was so cool and creepy, after a few years, and many Carnages, please gag me! Later, Venom just flat out sucked. They even killed off Eddie Brock his original host from cancer.

What other villains are great but don’t get the love and attention they are worthy of?

I have always liked Bizarro from Superman, he’s as strong as Superman and very powerful but I feel very underused. The X-Men have Magneto, who has gone form good guy to bad guy many times over. Now Apocalypse, is soon to be in the upcoming movie. Both are great villains, I’m not saying they aren’t, but there are plenty of others, that would make great movie, villains. The Reavers, The Morlocks, The Hellfire Club to just start for the X-Men.

What villains do you guys feel don’t get enough use?

I’d like to hear your thoughts.
