Close but no cigar:Aldrich Killian (Iron Man 3), Helmut Zemo (Captain America: Civil War), Alexander Pierce (Captain America: Winter Soldier )
5 – Ego The living Planet (Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2) It’s Kurt Russell. In a Marvel Film. As a living planet. Yup.
4 – The Mandarin (Iron Man 3) Okay so most people hate the movie version of The Mandarin. It’s controversial for sure. But man this version of The Mandarin is hysterical. Trevor Slatrery. Failed actor and patsy. Genius.
3 – Winter Soldier (Captain America: Winter Soldier) The Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes, former friend of Captain America and now the titular Winter Soldier. Assassin, killer and future good guy.
2 – The Vulture (Spider-Man Homecoming) New entry and hot off the press, Michael Keaton’s Vulture in Spiderman Homecoming is the most street level villain to ever hit the MCU and wonderfully ties in events form previous films. A great and memorable villain.
1 – Loki (Avengers Assemble, Thor, Thor: The Dark World) Come on it wasn’t really going to be anyone else was it? Loki has been ever present in the MCU and has delivered one of Marvel’s best and most endearing bad guys in The Avengers Assemble and both Thor Films.
