With all the villains in the Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow, I always wonder, "who are the worst of the worst"? Who are the most evil villains that our favorite heroes have faced? To answer that question for others wondering, here is the list of the top 10 most evil villains in The Flash, Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow.

10: Captain Cold

He's more of an anti-hero now since he's a main character and kinda hero on [DC's Legends of Tomorrow](tag:2937021), but I had to put him on here. He nearly killed the Flash a few times and has killed who knows how many other criminals. Before the Flash became a somewhat good influence to him, Snart was a very bad man.

9: General Shrieve

Once again, not a good guy. No one on here is really, I mean, it IS a list of villains. Anyway, Shrieve was the villain of Oliver's season three flashbacks and quite the villain he was. He unleashed a VERY lethal chemical on China and was then captured and sadly tortured by Oliver after a young boy named Akio who Oliver grew very close to died because of what Shrieve did. For what he did to China, he is on his list.

8: James Jesse

This man is the closest thing you'll ever see to a Joker on the Flash, Arrow, or Legends of Tomorrow. The difference between the Joker and the Trickster is that the Trickster doesn't have white skin (you know what I mean by white) or green hair. James Jesse, a man with no powers, has nearly killed the Flash twice! He was a raging murderer before the Flash, so for what he's done to people and the Flash he needed to be placed on this list.

7: Reverse Flash

You may be wondering why he isn't higher, well the reason for that is that he really only wants to kill the Flash. Yeah, the Flash is a hero, but the rest of the horrible criminals on this list simoly beat him out in an evil competition. He's still a very bad man who killed Cisco (kinda) and the Flash's mother (and nearly the Flash about a million times). A man from the future who is faster then the fastest man alive, obviously he has to be on this list.

6: Malcolm Merlyn

Once again, you might be wondering why this cold blooded mad man isn't higher, and once again let me explain. Like Captain Cold, Merlyn has become more of an anti-hero the past couple seasons on Arrow. If it wasn't for this you could make an argument for him being number 1, but now that he actually helps people a little he is number six.

5: Deathstroke

Even the name is awesome and scary, Deathstroke. Slade Wilson (not Wade, NOT Wade!!!!) was a friend of Oliver's in the flashbacks the first two seasons. However, when Slade took Mirakuru and learned that Oliver chose Sara Lance instead of Shado, the woman Slade loved, he went absolutely insane and tried to kill Oliver. Oliver thought he took care of the problem in the flashbacks, but Slade came back with an army of men like him with super strength and super insanity. He attacked Starling City and killed lots of innocent people in the streets. This is why Slade Wilson is on this list.

4: Ra's Al Ghul

A mad man who's been alive for hundreds of years, was the head of the League of Assassins, and nearly killed the Arrow! He's killed who knows how many men and woman. Another thing, he tried and succeeded at unleashing the same bio chemical General Shrieve released on China. Yeah, he's a very evil man. Oh wait, did I forget to mention that he practically killed Thea and Malcolm Merlyn AND also made his own daughter want to kill him. No, no he is not a good man. At all.

3: Zoom

see that? Right up there? That's one of the main reasons he's on this list. See what he does is he travels to other worlds, steals the speed force in a speedster, then kills them. He also falsely alerted cops to come to what would end up being their death. He killed 23 cops. Zoom is one of the most if not THE most dangerous villain the Flash has ever faced.

2: Damien Darhk

Damien Darhk is head of H.I.V.E, has been alive as long as Ra's Al Ghul, is trying to kill all the vigilantes in Star City, wants Star City to die so he can use it as a base of operations, paralyzed Felicity, and kills people wherever whenever. He is like Desthstroke, but with a bigger army and really awesome super powers.

1: Vandal Savage

Vandal Savage just has to one up Ra's Al Ghul and Damien Darhk, he's not a mad man that's been alive for hundreds of years, he's a mad man that's been alive for THOUSANDS of years. He takes over the world in 2166 and has killed Hawkman 207 and Hawkgirl 206. Trying to stop Vandal Savage, Rip Hunter assembled Hawkman, Hawkgirl, The Atom, Firestorm, the White Canary, Captain Cold AND Heatwave! It takes all of these amazing heroes (plus Captain Cold and Heatwave) to even have a chance at defeating him! Not to mention he sells nuclear weapons to wanted criminals in Norway. That is why Vandal Savage is the most evil person in the Flash, Arrow, and/or Legends of Tomorrow.
