It's often said that a hero is only as strong as his villains. What's the point of a superhero who doesn't have evil to battle against, after all? Would Batman be as memorable if it weren't for villains like Joker, Two-Face, and Catwoman? Would Wolverine still be the best there is without Sabretooth or Mystique or Lady Deathstrike pushing him to persevere? Comic fans will agree that supervillains are integral to the success of any good superhero comic.

In the super hero movies, this favorite part of comic books for me presented a serious logistical problem for guys like Robert Downey Jr., Christian Bale, and Chris Evans.
