The Joker

the joker

The Joker is ranked among the top comic book villains of all time. The Joker was first depicted in DC Comics as a comedic style criminal of Gotham City and a nuisance to its society with his prankster antics. The Joker was later created as a dark villain: a homicidal, psychopathic terrorist who kills mercilessly for amusement. The Joker’s appearance and ruthless personality, brings fear in any organization within the criminal underworld.

joker vs batman

The Joker became twisted with evil from the lost of his wife and child, then becoming physically deformed in a confrontational accident with the Dark Knight. The Joker believes Batman created him to be the negative side the hero couldn’t become: a killer. The Joker operates out of  many hideouts when running the streets of Gotham or is held in his public domain Arkham Asylum. The Joker outfits himself in bright colors like that of a clown or jester, thus receiving the title Clown Prince of Crime.  In Gotham City, The Joker represents complete chaos while Batman represents dominant order.

On film, The Joker’s character profile is parallel with the comic book version. In the 1989 Batman, Jack Nicholson played the theatrical criminal with a spontaneous sense of crude humor, with mild violence suitable for most audiences. Heath Ledger shed more light to The Joker’s dark and ruthless nature in The Dark Knight, much approved by comic fans worldwide. In the upcoming movie Suicide Squad, The Joker will be portrayed by Jared Leto. Since the release of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, comic fans feel Ben Affleck surpassed Christian Bale‘s popularity as Batman. Will Jared Leto become the top Joker to match the new and improved Batman? Or has the Clown Prince of Crime reached his cinematic limit?

Dr. Doom

dr.doom 1Dr. Doom, like many villains or some heroes, started with tragic beginnings. Doom lost his mother from a dealing gone wrong with the devil Mephisto and his father was lost in a grieving attempt to save his mother. Because the tragedy stemming from supernatural forces, Doom heavily indulged in learning science and magic in attempts to save his mother’s soul. Dr. Doom’s desire to gain more knowledge and power consumed him to the point where his actions took a villainous side than heroic. Because of this, Dr. Doom had many run ins with super teams such as The Fantastic Four and the Avengers, stopping his plans of domination.

dr doom 2Dr. Doom’s intellect level is in comparison with Lex Luthor, Reed Richards, Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark and even Dr. Strange in various degrees. Dr. Doom has many accomplishments and failures in his conquest of rulership. He has even been able to have the Infinity Gauntlet in his possession. Thanos also felt he was worthy of the Infinity Gauntlet as well, even though he failed its power.

dr.doom 2Dr. Doom has made his appearance on-screen with The Fantastic Four , Rise of the Silver Surfer and the 2015 Fantastic Four. Dr. Doom appeared to be the main villain for each of the Fantastic Four movies. Each film showed small portions of Dr. Doom’s potential as a menacing super villain. With the 2015 reboot of Fantastic Four, Dr. Doom took on a different origin in power. He also took on different look and array of powers, completely erasing any signs of humanity. With these big changes to the character and storyline, the film took a big lost to its ratings and loyalty to comic fans. Are the current adaptions of Dr. Doom the last of his on screen appearances or can movie producer revive and correct his character development?

Dark Phoenix

dark phoenix 1Dark Phoenix is among the most dangerous female villains in the comic book universe. Dark Phoenix is the evil embodiment of Phoenix Force, with Jean Grey as it’s host. Dark Phoenix wanted to separate everything connecting Jean Grey to her former life so destroying the cosmos would come with ease. Battling the Dark Phoenix is a suicide mission for anyone trying to stop her. Attacking the mind of the host is the best chance in stopping such a force, as done by Professor X.IMG_20150211_102839The Phoenix Force is similar to DC Comic entity Parallax. When Hal Jordan became the host, he displayed much of his dark side as Jean did under such power. Cosmic entities merging directly to a humanoid host, amplifies the powers of the host at immeasurable levels, making them god like. The Phoenix Entity was even split apart to inhabit different hosts at once, creating the Phoenix Five. This formation has a similar function to any Lantern Corps.IMG_20150211_100327Dark Phoenix has made the silver screen with the X-Men 3 The Last Stand. Dark Phoenix is portrayed by Famke Janssen, who played Jean Grey throughout the X-Men movie series. What is your take on the image of Dark Phoenix? She didnt seem like the out of control Dark Phoenix who reign destruction in the cosmos but more like a darker Jean Grey. Was that the best performance of Dark Phoenix or could movie producers have done more to show the power of such a dark entity…Is it possible that Dark Phoenix can be recruited into the Red Lantern Corps?! What would become of Jean Grey if she harbors the Phoenix Force, wielding the Red Power Ring?! To Be Continued….

Ultron

new ultronUltron is among the artificial intelligent beings of science fiction thrillers, which is a computerized intelligence that rejects its programming after becoming self aware. The system would then eliminate human beings because humans are viewed as a threat to its evolution. Ultron has gone through many upgrades to reach  his “perfect form”. Ultron is the first to be completely constructed in adamantium as part of his design enhancements. Ultron can control computer interfaces, the human mind and even the alien race Phalanx. ageultron2013009_molina_02_1Henry Pym created Ultron among his many experiments, but this creation was equipped with Pym’s very own consciousness, enabling Ultron experience human emotion. Choosing hate, Ultron hatred for Pym is because his existence was made possible by an “imperfect ” lifeform. In the film The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was described that Tony Stark was responsible for the creation of Ultron. Ultron in turn was suppose to be the creator of Vision but on film, it was Tony Stark, Bruce Banner and Thor responsible for the creation of the android._3Ultron interface is similar to the Skynet Interface System. When threaten with destruction, the two systems would create robotic soldiers ( terminators / ultronbots) to defend, contain or annihilate the threat to its source. Over time, the Skynet systems upgraded its robotic soldiers to cyborgs, equipping them with human tissue for disguise. This tactic is used to help infiltrate and eliminate the Resistance. Similarly, Ultron wanted to destroy The Avengers from within so he created the android Vision, but just like Ultron’s need to discard his set program, Vision broke free from Ultron’s control to join and help The Avengers take down the corrupted A.I, just like the T-101 or T-H cyborgs joining the Resistance to take down Skynet. ultron transformers

Ultron’s objectives is to evolve, gain universal knowledge, destroy humanity, become omnipotent. What if Ultron gained control of Vector Sigma? If this happened, could Ultron then enhanced his robotic armor to transform into vehicles of disguise like the Transformers? Would Ultron be a threat to Cybertron that the two opposing forces must join together to defeat this foe or would they fall victim to Ultron’s new upgrade?..Comic Multiverse fan favorite artwork of Ultron goes to the DeviantArt artist DeyVarah.

Nekron

As leader of the Black Lantern Corps, Nekron is among the most powerful, cosmic beings of the DC Universe. Nekron is the most powerful because he is the cosmic entity of death, the supreme ruler of the undead. All living beings face their end in death for the exception of those who posses immortality. If anyone is far dangerous than Atrocitus, it would be Nekron. If Nekron was able to recruit the Justice League to his Corps, what do you think would happen if he crossed into the Marvel Universe and recruited the zombies? Is it possible that Nekron could control Dracula just the same as his other undead hoards?

The Riddler

  The Riddler is among a list of villains who has experienced abuse as a child, especially from their fathers.( The Red Skull, Sabretooth , Deadshot….) This atmosphere has created a future of people who used their powers and abilities in negative ways. Despite him choosing a life of crime, The Riddler is similar to Bruce Wayne/Batman to some degree. Both characters are wealthy men, genius intellect and even have great detective skills. In various degrees, The Riddler is a worthy foe to Batman. But to Batman, The Riddler is nothing more than a mental challenge to his crime fighting career.

riddler 3

The Riddler has made his way from the comic pages to Batman’s animated series, then unto the movie screen. The Riddler was introduced in main stream films with Batman Forever. This character was portrayed by Jim Carrey. Comic fans can agree that this Riddler is the reigning champion with live appearances. A new version of The Riddler is found in the TV show Gotham, portrayed by Cory Michael Smith. Will a new actor take the role of this mysterious villain, or will this villain ever make it back to the big screen for a second time?

riddler 4

Could there be truth to The Riddler’s 3D Box, which was shown in the Batman Forever? What if,..the purpose of the box was no different from the purpose of our own televisions and cable boxes…! The purpose to is to capture our mentality. For example, when you watch a thriller movie, certain scenes are equipped with music of suspense, capturing your emotion and mental state of the scene. It feels as if you are the character in danger when in reality,  you’re the one watching a movie!! Now that we have 3D movies and 3D televisions, are our IQs really decreasing while spending more time in front of the television?!

Apocalypse

apocalyspe

Apocalypse is the most powerful mutant and first known mutant on Earth. His origins date back to Egyptian times when the people believed highly in the gods of the universe. His physical appearance alone led his loved ones and society to reject him. His power and strength spread fear throughout the world, making the fearful worship him like a god. Immortality allowed Apocalypse to live through the ages, gain knowledge, battle dark forces like Dracula and even his own kind: The X-Men.

apocalypseff

Apocalypse believed only the strongest will survive. After learning of the Mutant X gene from Nathaniel Essex, Apocalypse plans to have mutants replace humankind. Magneto also enforces the idea of mutant superiority, but hates the idea of mutant experimentation. Because of his past, Magneto believes experimentation on mutants only leads to slavery or death. Magneto believes that it should be a Brotherhood of Mutants instead of servitude to Apocalypse.

apocalypse

When merging with Celestial technology, Apocalypse far surpasses all mutants. With these tools, Apocalypse believed he was the chosen one to shape civilization. This is similar in the film Stargate. A celestial being merging with a human and attempting to rule over humanity as a God. Apocalypse even created his version of the biblical four horsemen, expanding his godlike disposition over humans and mutants. Were there such celestial beings that existed in ancient history that is responsible for shaping humanity as it is today? Was ancient Egypt the landing site for such beings?

appp

Apocalypse is featured in TVs series such as X-Men and X-Men Evolution. He has also made a small cameo at the end of X-Men Days of Future Past. Apocalypse will make a full appearance in the upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse. Will this film be the best out of the series?
