As I have mentioned before on this blog, I love making lists. Earlier in the year I made a list of My Top 10 Marvel Heroes and I thought it would be fun to expand that list! So here are my top 20 favorite Marvel heroes (20-11)!
20. Elektra: I’ve always been an Elektra fan, but my fandom went way up after I started reading the newest run on Thunderbolts, which I love. What’s not to like about Elketra? She’s a ninja assassin with a badass costume. She is one of my favorite anti-heroes and she is a perfect fit in the new Thunderbolts.
I will be on vacation in Disney World this week with my family so I probably won’t be posting any reviews for a week but I thought I’d leave you guys with an exciting post before I leave! I love making lists and I love Marvel comics so I thought I would follow up on my list of my Top 10 Favorite Marvel Super Heroes with this new list of my Top 10 Marvel Villains! I will also be updating both lists soon and expanding it to my top 20 favorite Marvel heroes and villains. For now, here they are my Top 10 Marvel Villains!
10. Bullseye: There is no denying that Bulleye is a psychopath. As an assassin he has killed countless people and he enjoys using seemingly harmless items like pencils and playing cards to kill people. Bullseye tends to be a Daredevil villain and has been torturing Daredevil since the villain’s existence in the comics.
This blog is devoted to Uncanny X-Men, but I am also a big fan of Marvel Comics in general and I decided that I would show some love for my favorite superheroes in the Marvel Universe. Here are my top 10 favorite Marvel characters! As you may have noticed, some of these characters overlap with my My Ideal X-Men Team list!
10. Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze): Ghost Rider was one of my first favorite heroes when I was young because he looked so cool. I still think he looks awesome these days, but that is not the main reason why Ghost Rider is one of my favorite characters. Johnny Blaze is a flawed man and this makes him interesting. Ghost Rider’s power set is also very different and unique. I like Ghost Rider so much that I really enjoyed the two Nicholas Cage movies even though they weren’t very good.
