View Full Version : "Bad Guys" as Protagonists?
I need a list of comics and books that have "Bad Guys" as main characters. And I'm not just talking "Bad @$$", either. I mean, THE main character in the story is BAD! Any good ones out there?
Well, take your pick of just about any Lobo comic ever made. He's a bad guy in every sense of the word. Poison Elves is good, too. Oh, and the Thunderbolts. They played as being good, but in reality it was a plan by Baron Zemo.
Though I've lost all taste for Spawn and I hate McFarlane, there WERE 2 spinoff limited series revolving around VIOLATOR who I still find amusing.
VIOLATOR #'s 1-3
VIOLATOR vs BADROCK #'s 1-4
Deadpool has been more or less a villain more often than not. He doesn't kill good people sure, but he's still a murdering assassin. The stuff with his name at top billing where he's not going all yuppie superguy:
Deadpool: the Circle Chase #'s 1-4 (Volume 1)
Deadpool (Volume 2 limited) #'s 1-4
Deadpool (Volume 3; Ongoing) #'s 1-16 or so, then he went superguy for a while; then get back to baddie from #'s 34-60)
TYPHOID MARY had her own Marvel limited series from Marvel once, VERY good stuff. TYPHOID #'s 1-4 from "Marvel Edge" :-P
ABOMINATION had a limited series; "Abominations" #'s 1-3
MYSTIQUE is getting her own ongoing series coming soon in Marvel's Tsunami line.
SPIDER MAN'S TANGLED WEB quite often revolved around villains, not spider man himself. In fact, every issue except for #'s 1-3, 11 & 21 stars somebody other than spidey. SOme good ones to look at here are:
#4 (All about a random Kingpin lackey)
#'s 5-6 (Rhino)
#13 ("The bar")
#'s 16-17 (Tombstone)
#19 (Rhino & The Grizzly)
#20 (J Jonah Jameson, debatably a villain and even if not, quite funny)
There are multiple limited series from the mid 80's and early 90's starring just spider Man enemies. I believe they're titled "The Deadly Foes of Spider Man" & "Spider Man's Deadly Foes"
Technically, "Thunderbolts" stars supervillains :-D
The original "Suicide Squad" series I think was a team of supervillains working off parole with government service, unless I"m mistaken.
