      So nobody’s gonna talk about vandal savage??? He has been alive since the dawn of man and has slain countless amounts of people. He’s overrun countries, destroyed civilizations, and orchestrated wars and not even a mention??

      @Kamsi Mgbojirikwe yeah I mean those are all good, but Lobo would rock their world, Lobo fights Superman to stand stills. Although I'd love to see Killer Croc fight King Shark.

  • Your Friendly Neighborhood Athies

    I love DC because their villains can be extremely dark or inappropriate by nature. Thanos just snaps his fingers and people disintegrate. Joker shoots many bystanders including a fatal shot to Batman and snaps his own neck out of his own insanity with finishing “See you in hell”

  • Assassin~Charizard0513

    While it's true that Bane is horrifyingly strong and intelligent, his goal is not primarily violent just for the sake of violence. He was more proving a point. However. One of the first things Doomsday does on Earth is crush a bird in his hand. Just because it's there and he can. Laughing while doing so. Joker tricks Superman into killing his wife and unborn child (ironically utilizing a Kryptonite based Scarecrow toxin to convince Superman that he was fighting Doomsday to protect Lois and their child), with her heart beat being monitored by a device set to detonate a nuke in Metropolis when her heart stopped beating. And he thought this was hilarious and fun, laughing and joking about it while Superman beats him to a bloody pulp, right up until Superman shoves his fist through the Joker's chest. Why isn't Harley Quinn on this list..? And frankly Thanos should be higher as well since he relishes combat to the point of utilizing the infinity gauntlet to suppress all of the cosmic entities simultaneously and keeping them that way while restricting his own access to the rest of the stones except just the power stone to fight and kill the Avengers that remain after he snapped his fingers and erased half of everything in existence just to show off for Mistress Death.

    ....But yeah Carnage makes sense; he's completely insane with bloodlust.

    Why tf is darkseid on the bottom of the list??? He’s literally the god of evil

  • tvman250
    tvman250 2 months ago

    As soon as I saw darkseid at the bottom, I knew this was gonna be a pretty crappy list🤦🏿‍♂️. We’re talking about a God that has the power to gruesomely torture & kill anyone for a THOUSAND YEARS, each year progressively getting worse. Not to mention dude is literally the epitome of evil, so yeah there’s that.
    Then there’s doomsday, who obviously should be number one for his hell bent determination to destroy the universe and all life in it. And as every comic book reader knows, he can come back from death immune to whatever killed him last time. It’s pretty terrifying knowing that the ONLY way to preserve your own life around this creature will never be permanent. ☹️
    Joker, in my opinion, is more ruthless and violent than carnage is. It’s just the way I see it. Just because Joker didn’t like the simple yet messy style of carnage, it doesn’t mean he won’t get his hands dirty. Yes I am talking about the marvel/dc crossover. This guy once tortured the dark knight til he broke his psyche, of course w/ the powers of Mr. Mxyzptlk (the 5th dimensional imp). During the War of Jokes and Riddles, the joker once pulled out every single tooth from (presumably) an old lady. In another comic joker had even killed the sitter of over a dozen babies, and left them all to die. Another time he casually skinned a man alive just for a chuckle. All I’m saying is that unlike carnage, the joker is methodically more violent and deadly, and tends to make his killings more meaningful so he can create a name strictly for himself.
    Thanos is not just an honorable mention, like why would even think about doing that. At least top five in my opinion.
    I also wished they added other villains like Vandal Savage, Superboy Prime, KGBeast, Gor (the god butcher), Magneto, Apocalypse, Sinestro, and Darth Vader. I know Vader isn’t exactly a comic book villain, but he does have his own series and even having a new one added. Plus he’s badass, and have a pretty big and significant body count.
