In this blog we will examine Top 10 Sci-Fi Movie Villains of All Time: Bad Guys of the Sci Fi World!
How much work can superheroes have in a world where there are no villains? The way to be a superhero is always through fighting evil. The quality of superhero movies depends a bit on the villains…. Here are the unforgettable villains of superhero movies…
PALPATINE – Star Wars
When we first saw him, we only knew him as the Emperor. He later continued his role as Darth Vader’s ruthless commanding agent. We saw how he was a provocative and manipulator in the scenes where Anakin sneaked into his mind. This man behind the Sith Lord is actually an even more malicious character than Darth Vader. This is what ruined not only Anakin’s life, but also the Galaxy.
Doctor Octopus – Spider Man
Dr. Otto Octavius is actually a hero of tragedy … Like many others in the selection, he is not a villain in the beginning. He is just a passionate, in love scientist and a good person at heart. But his passion and arrogance for power prepares his tragedy. While trying to make a show with his new invention, everything goes out of control, causing the deaths of loved ones …
He paid a heavy price for his effort to merge with the machine and become a superhuman. The advances make him the true enemy of Peter Parker / Spider-Man at some point. Moreover, it is a formidable enemy…
Thanos – Avengers
The character that takes the lead in the list of favorite villains is Thanos from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He managed to score 94/100 in the Avengers: Endgame movie Rotten Tomatoes starring Thanos. Thanos’ Wikipedia page, which is searched 584 thousand times a month on Google, was viewed 164 thousand 475 times.
Moreover, as we saw in the first scenes of “Avengers: Endgame“, this is a very humble life … On the other hand, let’s not forget that he is someone who wants to destroy half of the universe by clicking his finger. He turns half the living creatures into ashes, without considering who they are or knowing who they are. Why is that? Because he believes that the resources of the universe will not be enough for more living things. He thinks he’s just doing the right thing, as many bullies today and in the past think.
Darth Vader – Star Wars
Darth Vader was chosen first with 3,422 votes in the poll on the Star Wars universe organized by Radio Times, the most popular radio and television magazine in Britain, while Palpatine followed this character with 1,897 votes. Darth Vader was chosen by far the “worst character of the universe” in the survey conducted with the participation of more than 10 thousand users.
As a matter of fact, this is not surprising. Because Vader’s thing is that he is already using power in a bad way. However, the participants became very absorbed in the universe and started to hold a grudge against this character. It is thought that there is no other explanation for the fact that a very serious part of the users, such as 33 percent, voted for this character.
Agent Smith – Matrix
Written and directed by brothers Smith, Larry and Andy Wachowski, he appeared in the Matrix films, played by Hugo Weaving.
While it was actually a computer program trying to fix anomalies, it broke in the first movie and turned into a virus that appeared in the other films of the trio (The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions). Agent Smith’s main goal is Mr. To reboot the Matrix system by destroying Anderson, the 6th Neo where “The One” was loaded. While this is happening, being able to destroy the Matrix system and regain freedom… Agent Smith also deserves to be on our list of villains.
Bonus: Fantasy Villains
Lord Voldemort – Harry Potter
The fictional character that was the cause of the Harry Potter franchise written by Rowling. Lord Voldemort is also the leader of the movement that allows only those of the Thoroughbred Sorcerer Race to live in the Magic World.
Considered the most powerful and fearsome wizard of all time, Voldemort is afraid and unbeatable except for Dumbledore. When he kills Lily and James Potter, he tries to kill Harry Potter as well, but the death curse he sends Avada Kedavra fatally weakens the Dark Lord, which he hit by rebounding in Harry’s forehead. Lord Voldemort escapes and his pressure on the magic world is lifted. His close supporters, called the Dark Lord and Death Eaters, are considered responsible for many tortures and murders in the world of sorcerers and muggles.
Sauron – The Lord of the Rings
“A big capless eye that burns out.” This definition of the Dark Lord of Mordor on paper is already quite good, but remember that we see this character on the screens as an eye that constantly sneaks around. The Lord of the Rings team and Peter Jackson captured their imaginations perfectly in the cinema. It beautifully brought the power of the Dark Lord to the screens, who would knock everything over with one blow when angry. Even if it does not have a bodily form, it is certainly an element of nightmares, especially in the scenes where Frodo appears in his mind whenever he touches the ring.
