There are hundreds of heroes and villains in the superhero canon of both Marvel and DC, yet we see the same characters in adaptations over and over again. So here is my list of wildly overrated villains that don’t necessarily need to be retired but absolutely need a break.
Overall Marvel has some incredible villains that mirror their heroes in a way that bring out some amazing character development. Adaptations seem to avoid these villains like the plague. As Marvel and DC forge through their future projects I am begging for some variety and some actual comic book education when writing these characters. Even as one shots there are many characters to choose from and not everything has to set up something bigger. Petition to make comic book movies fun and actual adaptations instead of every project having to be related to every other project.
