Welcome to the first Top Ten Tuesday post of October! This week I'm telling you all about my favourite comic book villains.
I LOVE comic books, and I think that the villains are my third favourite thing about them (my first being strong female characters, my second being the pretty pictures!). But who are my ten favourite villains, you ask?
10) The Joker
I both love and hate The Joker, but it wouldn't have felt right to not include him on this list. I love his design and his battles with Batman, but the abusive nature of his relationship with Harley Quinn makes me feel extremely unsettled.
I've read a lot of articles about Catwoman and how brilliant she's been in DC history, but because she hasn't been given her own title in the DC Rebirth cycle (yet!) I haven't been able to read as much as her as I want to. I'm probably going to go back and read her New 52 series, because I think she should probably be much higher up on this list.
While this is a power I really would enjoy, being a massive ice cream fan, it seems that the other X-Men all mocked him for his obscure talent, which turned him into the most dangerous villain the universe had ever seen!
(I'm kidding about that bit. They probably just ate him to stop him causing trouble).
Loki the Trickster is one of the most aggravating characters in the comic world thanks to his cocky, over-confident attitude. Now running for president, he seems like the perfect candidate.
4) Poison Ivy
Yes, Poison Ivy runs around Gotham in little more than leaves, but she's a very empowering female who uses her sexuality to do whatever the hell she wants.
3) The Punisher
2) Harley Quinn
1) Condiment King
I LOVE condiments, so when I found out that there was a genuine comic book villain who ran around causing trouble with ketchup and mustard, IN HIS PANTS?! These are LIFE GOALS!
I hope you enjoyed this Top Ten Tuesday! Who are your favourite villains, and why?
