"I always thought [Annihilus] a great and bizarre villain and wanted to up his game and the stakes he played for to a level that would make him a worthy adversary for the Mad Titan." - Jim Starlin

"Like visiting with an old friend. The Titan and I slipped back into our familiar ol' groove as if only weeks, instead of years, had passed since we last played together. He's the very first character I ever created professionally. The way it looks currently, my career hit its high point right out of the gate and had been going downhill since." - Jim Starlin

"If you look closely, you'll see that Marvel basically has three Thanoses. There is the 1970s Thanos appearing in the movies. This is before he got the Infinity Gauntlet. Then there are the Thanos stories I'm telling. And finally, there is the Thanos that appears in the mainstream Marvel stories. All three seem to coexist easily enough, so..." - Jim Starlin

"Thanos at this point has come to the realization that he is insane. He's working on a whole different level of reality than anyone else, other than perhaps Warlock. Warlock is also out of the norm. Death doesn't have a real heavy sway on either one of them. They tend to be cast as players in cosmic dramas that are way beyond their plane of existence. Both have learnt to expect the unexpected, to try and let as little damage be done by what we're doing as possible. That's not always a consideration for Thanos, but certainly for Warlock. This is a story of undefined obsession, mostly on Thanos' part." - Jim Starlin

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.
