    Just sheer curiousity- who do you think is the most powerful comic book villain? Thought it might lead to some lively discussion...

    Doctor Doom. Scientific genius on the level of Tony Stark and Reed Richards, an army of Doombots, possibly the second most powerful sorcerer in the universe behind Dr. Strange and he has a freakin' country.

    Honorable mentions go to: Magneto and Lex Luthor.

    Black Bolt even though he's not really a villian.

    End.

    I would also say Darksied and Thanos, The Grandmaster is probably on par with them along with the likes of Surtur. There are many beings more powerful than them...Galactus, Celestials, Eternity...but they are more antagonistic rather than villainous. There was a gigantic robot called Terminus that would go around breaking up planets and sell the pieces, I'd say that's kinda evil.

    At one point the "twin" of Adam Warlock, The Magus, had the Infinity Gauntlet, as did Thanos. They would then be the most pwerful supervillains at those times.

    Anti-Moniter duh...it took an entire army of super heroes to take him out.

    The Anti-Monitor is right up there.

    Arguably, Lilith (Lucifer) is more powerful, but that?s in ?soft? power ? her charisma and her army, not her ability to point at something and cause it to die.

    I should add Imperiex, Trion Juggernaut, and for good measure Malebolgia.

    Apocalypse? I think he might officially be a god now?

    Hyperion from Exiles. He's basically Superman without the kryptonite weakness. The only thing that could defeat him were TWO versions of himself from alternate realities. And even then they didn't kill him, they just banished him to his home dimension.

    Essentially, he's an alternate universe version of the original Hyperion, different from the Supreme Power version. He had attempted to conquer and rule his home Earth. But, rather than be ruled by him, all the countries on Earth used their nuclear arsenal against him, wiping out all life on Earth except for Hyperion, who survived.

    Here's his Wikipedia article.

    The Rogue Watcher, since all Watchers are supposed to be quite powerful. The Joker when he had Mxyzptlk's powers. Basically, all villians with godlike powers are the top teir.

    It's not always the super powers that make a villain truly powerful. I'd say that villains like Dr. Doom, Lex Luthor and Magneto are more powerful than the cosmic beings due to their cunning and resiliency.

    But in terms of sheer power, I'd add Scarlet Witch (circa Disassembled/House of M) to the list.

    I'm probably going to go with Dr. Doom

    Why Doom?

    Scarlet Witch...hadn't thought of that, although M-Day was pretty much an isolated incident. Still, I like.

    I'd go with the anti-monitor or maybe Dark Phoenix for pure power levels. Lex Luthor is up there to, he might not have any powers but he's probably one of the most powerful villans in terms of genius and cunning.

    I definetly agree about Luthor. I love Brainiac's line regarding Luthor's genius in "Red Son".

    "I couldn't allow him to debate with you Superman. Entering a conversation with a level nine intelligence is more dangerous than any death trap. My calculations were that he could have talked you into suicide within fourteen minutes."

    Lex Luthor- That man may not be the strongest villan, but he's devious, manipulative, and smart.

    Marvel, Thanos has to be right up there.
    DC, Anti-Monitor, maybe Superboy Prime if you count him as a villian.

    The Joker because he's just that insane.

    Hmm interesting... seems that most of the insanely powerful choices come from Marvel, while the smart/crazy ones come from DC...
