Re: Greatest Comic Book Villain?
For me the greatest villain in comics will always be Carnage. The absolute perfect opposite of the hero he faces off against.
For Spider-Man, his mantra explains his mission: "With great power comes great responsibility".
It is the exact opposite for Carnage. To him, with great power comes the ability to do greater harm. There could not be a greater disparity between a hero and villain, yet with so much in common. They both suffered psychological trauma at a young age. Peter Parker used it to strengthen himself, and rise above it. Cletus Kasady pulled it all inside himself, and allowed it to drive him insane, and fuel his rage.
