"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

Old Stoneface... no, not Darkseid... the other one )

Alright, Chris Sims. You've finally done it. I've been converted to the Holy Socialistic Order Of His Cracky Greatness, KGBeast the First.

The chances of KGBeast being the main villain in any Batman movie in the foreseeable future are rather slim - most likely, he'll be relegated to fodder while all the "real" villains soak up spotlight - but I don't care. You look at his debut story, "Ten Nights of the Beast", and look me in the eye and tell me that it's not perfect for an over-the-top, Expendables-style action flick.



In which much violence and wannabe Frank Miller-ness ensues. )

This should surprise no one who's familiar with my posts in this community, nor, really, anyone who pays attention to my username.

I. Love. The. Joker. Always have, probably always will.

Now, I'm fully aware of the "Batman/the police/some civilian should totally kill this asshole Villain Sue!" sentiment on many corners of the Internet, and I can understand them. Hell, in some ways, I emphasize with them. For the last ten or fifteen years, the man who once proudly called himself the Clown Prince of Crime has been headed down a pretty steep slide into mindless, humorless violence (interspersed with those obnoxious events that shove themselves in our faces and scream "SEE! SEE? THE JOKER IS BATMAN'S #1 VILLAIN AGAIN! HE'S NO LAUGHING MATTER NOW, BABY!"), and if anything, the DCnU and Scott Snyder have only exacerbated it.

And yet... and yet, no matter how low his low points get, they can never quite cancel out the highs. Perhaps those high points will never return, but even if that's so, he's already got plenty under his belt for us to peruse at our leisure.

Besides, I just can't hate a face like this.



The Best of the J-Man, behind the cut! )

WARLOCK AND THE INFINITY WATCH #13 features a fight between Drax the Destroyer and the Professor Hulk. This is when Drax was child-like (as a result of being resurrected via the Soul Gem) and when the Hulk was smart (either merged Hulk or a brand new alternate personality, depending on who you ask).

Some speculation about the new GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY movie and its connection to the greater MCU after the cut.

How much of Arthur Douglas is there? )
