    Lex from Smallville. I like what they did with the character…or where they were going with the character before Rosenbaum decided to leave the show.

    I will also always be a fan of Gargamel.

    Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Or (at some points in the series) Angel. Why are the bad ones always SOOOO good lookin’?

      I thought of Spike, since I love him so, but to me he was the good guy. Angel was too whiny for me.

      Yummy Spike…

        Spike was so whiney as a good guy. He’s way better as a villain.

    Either The Joker or Drago, the Russian boxer from Rocky IV.

    Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd (the stage show, not the film). She seems so motherly and domestic. But in the end, when all is revealed, she is arguably the most evil person in the entire show. Which is saying a lot, considering that everyone is corrupted in one way or another by the end of this show.

    Wow, good one Shannon.
    My first response was the Joker, so I guess I’ll stick with that, BUT your answer made me think outside the comic book realm (apparently I associate villian with superhero comics) and so my real favorite is Vince Vaughn’s character, Lester Long in the movie Clay Pigeons. That was the beginning (and I’m afraid, the beginning of the end) of his sexy phase, and it’s just really a great movie.
    Jeaneane Garofolo was probably tickled freaking oink when she delivered the line: “Barney? Could you not poke the body with a stick, please?” Classic!

      tickled freaking “PINK” not OINK!

      Why thank you, Amber! My immediate thoughts were Disney villains, because they tend to be so fantastic. So I understand why you thought comic books. But Mrs. Lovett kept pushing her way into my head. You’d have to see a production of the stage show to know why I prefer that Mrs. Lovett to the film interpretation. Helena Bonham Carter was just ok (let’s face it, she’s not a singer), and played the role in such a way that you’d never be surprised that she would bake people into pies.

      But on the stage, Angela Lansbury once played Mrs. Lovett, and sort of typifies the way the role is usually performed. Imagine someone like Angela Lansbury participating in murder and canibalism, and you can see what I mean.
