People like reading about superheroes saving the day, but let's face it, without a cool, compelling villain, what is there to save? Which Marvel Villain are you? Let's find out with our new Marvel Villain Quiz! Every good superhero story needs its own villain. These characters can be terrifying, sympathetic, on their way to a redemption arc or complete jerks. But one thing is for sure. Who the villain is, what they want and how they go about getting it is what defines each superhero's story.

After all, no one can deny that evil has a definite coolness factor. Who wouldn't want to lead armies of vicious soldiers while riding a giant war wolf or turn the very forces of the universe itself against your enemies? This quiz invites you to play around with your shadow self for a bit and imagine yourself as one of those larger-than-life villains. And maybe with a good ending this time!

Fun Facts

Marvel Comics grew out of a company called Timely Publications, founded in 1939. Though the 1940s are often called the Golden Age of comics, Stan Lee together with Jack Kirby is credited with elevating the medium. He deliberately designed characters to appeal to older teenagers and even adults, like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Certainly, Stan Lee was onto something, as people of all ages currently enjoy Marvel stories across film, television and comics.

The best-known Marvel villain is probably Thanos, who with one snap of his finger abolished half of all life in the universe. In the movies, Thanos is motivated by environmental concerns — he worries there aren't enough resources to go around, and mass death is his solution. However, in the comics, he has a very different reason. He's developed a crush on Death (from Neil Gaiman's Sandman graphic novel series) and thinks killing half of everyone will attract her attention.
