10 of the Craziest Comic Book Villains

You have to have some wires crossed to become a supervillain. The thought process that leads to I'm going to put on a silly mask and torture people to death is not a typical one, to say the least. As a result, we get a lot of supervillains whose main trait is They’re crazy, LOL. Suffice it to say none of the characters listed here are exactly respectful or accurate depictions of mental health issues. So if that’s the kind of thing that bothers you, maybe this won’t be a fun time for you. But for everyone else, buckle up.

10. Negan

(The Walking Dead, Image Comics)

I mean, of course there had to be some sort of long-term Walking Dead villain here. And The Governor is significantly less interesting than Negan.

For the record, right up front: I am only talking about the comic book version. I do not watch the show. But the comic book version is scary and kinda funny and deeply insane. Even after he’s toppled, he becomes a living Chekov’s gun, biding his time until he can get out of his prison and ruin everything.

He’s toxic masculinity embodied, too. His weird psycho-sexual attitude towards his violence is unique to his own voice. Straight up one of the most foul-mouthed characters in comics, right here.

He’s famous for, in his introduction, making a real…um…impact on the main cast, and that sure does set a precedent for the kind of a person he’s going to be. It is intense.
