What makes a good villain? The extent of their evil? Their style? The complexity of their plans?

Of course it depends on the villain and the hero they are up against, though a good villain shouldn't be so one note that they can't adapt to deal with other heroes should the need arise.

Of course, every now and again you need an UBER-villain, who can target an individual (of sufficient power) or a whole pile of heroes trying to stop them.

This guy is probably my favourite of the cosmic baddies

This is moment from Quasar issue 24 during the Cosmos in Collision event. This moment was the first thing I thought of when I heard villains being awesome.

Marvel teased another event today even though the first issue of "Age of Ultron" isn't out yet.

Billed as the "grandest Marvel Comics event of all time," this teaser reveals the contents of Marvel's Free Comic Book Day issue for 2013.

Greetings True Believers!

Ah, internet memes. One of the pillars of the internet, right up there with youtube and porn.

It's always fun when comic book versions surface.

If you've been on the interwebz in the last decade, you've seen a "haters gonna hate" picture. I've decided to post my favorite comic book versions of this meme.

Post your own if it pleases you.

CosmicBookNews has the article talking about Tom Bevroot's recents posts, as we may have not seen the last of a certain purple puss.

CosmicBookNews has the preview of the conclusion to the Thanos Imperative, and possibly a close to this chapter in the Marvel Cosmic stories.

Oh yeah, Spoilers ahoy.

This scan will never get old, and while this is not the first time I've posted it I figure this is perfect for a favorite villain post.

My favorite villain is Galactus, Devourer of Worlds.

cut for size  )

Why? Because first Galactus was in a lot of ways Trope Codifier for all other Cosmic beings that came after him (and was shamelessly ripped off as Unicron and Imperiex). Unlike most villains there's no real way to fight him, he's a Lovecraftian cosmic horror that predates our Universe and unlike Cthulhu and company is alive and well in the present day. This unfortunately makes him a prime target of the Worf effect, but such is the fate of all cool and powerful characters, unfortunately. Especially in the realm of comic-bookdom.

Galactus is scarier than other villains for the same reason the Great Old Ones are scarier than demons: the most terrifying villain imaginable is one to whom humans are nothing but ants that he doesn't notice or bear real malice to. Galactus predated most of these and helped offer a new and frankly awesome kind of villain that Marvel *still* does better than DC, with the exception of the Anti-Monitor, Mageddon, and Final Crisis Darkseid.

And also because he owned Thanos. XP.

Here is a preview from Cosmic Book News of Avengers & The Infinity Gauntlet #1.

This is a "re-imagining" from Brian Clevinger (Atomic Robo) and artist Brian Churilla (The Anchor). Its for their all ages line and not in "continuity."

Marvel seems to be doing a lot regarding the Infinity Gems (Avengers #8) and such. Even playing a role in Super Hero Squad cartoon.

Me likey cosmic! :)

Btw, I love your upload image mod. Very smooth and easy to use!
