The Joker, Maleficent the sorceress, Tony Soprano: Who's your favorite pop culture villain?

Posted on

Earlier this week, we asked you to list your favorite pop-culture heroes for an upcoming issue. But enough with that do-gooder crap, now it’s time for the fun part: Who are the greatest villains in pop culture, past and present? The Joker? Cruella De Vil? Dr. Doom? Just like with the heroes, you can pluck from movies, TV, books, or comic books. Write your dastardly picks below, even if they’ve already been suggested, because we’re going to compile the top vote-getters and announce them in the issue, along with your (and our) list of heroes. Maybe we’ll even stage a battle to the death between the groups and see who’s left standing. That could solve the good vs. evil question once and for all.
