Ranked: Spider-Man’s Greatest Villains – LaughingPlace.com
There are few characters in wonder, or whatever, with a gallery of thugs the size of Spider-Man. The villains Peter Parker has faced over the years are unprecedented and some of the best in the Marvel Universe. It’s almost impossible to rank these villains, but I’ll give it a shot.
10. Black cat
The people closest to you are the ones who can hurt you the most. Peter Parker’s Adventure has been both a hero and a villain over the years and it has certainly given Spidey a headache. Just when you think she’s turned a new leaf and become her most powerful ally, she dries up Spider-Man again. She’s far from her biggest enemy, but there’s an element of heartbreak that puts her on this list.
Spider-Man is not a fan of the symbiotes as he has said on several occasions. He’s dealt with so many, including one you’ll likely find higher on this list, but none have been more deadly than Carnage. What happens when you combine a serial killer with an overpowered alien? You get a murderous creature that haunts Peter Parker’s nightmares.
Mephisto doesn’t usually come to mind when thinking about Spider-Man’s villains, but he’s forced Peter to make the most difficult decision of his life. After revealing his secret identity in “Civil War”, the bad guys have targeted Peter and those he loves. The result was that Aunt May took the bullet from a sniper and died in Peter’s arms. Arrived with a proposal, Mephisto forced Peter to choose his aunt or his wife, Mary Jane Watson, my offer to clear the timeline and come back before he revealed his identity. The result is a tormented Peter who must say goodbye to MJ before making a literal deal with the devil. This is perhaps the most heartbreaking story in comics.
7. The kingpin
Of course, there’s at least one big reason why Peter needed that secret identity in the first place. New York’s biggest crime boss has been going after Spidey from the start and he would do whatever it takes to ruin his life. Most of the other villains Spider-Man has faced have had the strings pulled by Wilson Fisk. He’s the mastermind behind all of Spidey’s worst days.
6. The vulture
Sometimes it’s enough to go back to the classics. The Vulture was the first villain to make the cover of a Spider-Man comic book when “The Amazing Spider-Man # 2” became available in 1963. The Vulture has had dozens of fights with Spidey over the years. , let it be alone. part of the Sinister Six. His endurance is evident if he appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming barely four years ago and should still appear in the Morbius in January.
Speaking of endurance, Mysterio debuted just a year after Vulture in “The Amazing Spider-Man # 13”. The evil illusionist has created all manner of trouble for Spider-Man over the years, including revealing his secret identity in Spider-Man: Far From Home. While we haven’t yet seen how it plays out in the MCU, this is just the latest in a long line of games that Mysterio has played with the wall-crawler.
4. Kraven the Hunter
Spyder, Spyder, burning. In the forests of the night. Which immortal hand or eye could frame your frightening symmetry? When a villain is the focal point of one of the most iconic Spidey stories of all time, you know he’s going to make this list. Plus, there aren’t many names on this list who were successful in killing Peter Parker. Sure, he came back in a strange and complicated way, but for a while he was in a grave. Kraven also has one of the coolest villain looks of all time.
3. Doctor Octopus
Now we are entering this higher level. When you try to think of Spider-Man villains, Doc Ock is probably one of the first that comes to mind. He’s appeared in comics (obviously), movies, animated series, video games, and pretty much every medium that Spidey has ever woven his web into. Things have gotten personal between Peter and Otto Octavius over the years, both in a positive and a negative way. Like I said, those closest to you …
Another villain with a complicated history with Spidey. Venom is now a hero in his own right, but for years he’s tortured the web-slinger. Eddie Brock made it his mission to kill Spider-Man, while the symbiote who bestowed his power on him constantly reminded him that he was not as good as his rival. In recent years we’ve been able to explore more and more of Brock’s past and seen what made him the way he was, which helped see his side of the story. But Venom wasn’t always Brock. Mac Gargan was perhaps an even more deadly version of the character. No matter who the symbiote was attached to, he has long been one of Spidey’s greatest enemies.
1. Green Jester
There is no debate here. Green Goblin is without a doubt Spider-Man’s greatest enemy. Time and again, Gobby’s attacks on Peter Parker have been personal, including the murder of his first love, Gwen Stacy. Add to that the attacks on Aunt May, Mary Jane Watson, and even his own son, Harry Osborn, the Green Goblin is responsible for some of the worst days in Peter Parker’s life. And yet, Peter constantly tries to make amends with Norman, even after all the horrible things he’s done. It was a no-brainer for him to move from comics to the big screen in the very first Spider-Man movie and it looks like we haven’t seen the last of him yet.
