While Batman has a great rogues gallery, the only other superhero that can compare is probably Spider-Man. Which of Spidey's baddies do you like the most?

Man, it's really tough to pick. Carnage, Venom, and Mysterio come to mind pretty quickly.

I really like Vermin. His background is pretty rough, they usually do a decent job of making you feel sorry for the guy, and the character gets overlooked a lot.

Doctor Octopus. And sorry Sharky, but Carnage is the worst Spider-Man villain.

Green Goblin is Spidey's Joker, but Doc Ock and Venom are also great.

I fully agree with you.
Although Green Goblin is my favorite because he's the one of the most charismatic enemies of Spider-Man (at least to me).

Green Goblin is the easy pick, but he is pretty good. I enjoy Hobgoblin and Kingpin as well.

We're just going to have to disagree. Carnage, to me, creates the other half of the Joker for Spider-Man villain. Green Goblin has the back story and involves the death of loved ones. He's also the clever thinker, while Carnage is the remorseless, homicidal force that can't be reasoned with.

Carnage is one of, if not the only, villain that really has Spidey contemplating purposely killing a villain because he believes they're truly irredeemable.

I'm not saying the writing has always been great for Carnage, like how they always bring him back from the dead in ridiculous ways, but the writing for pretty much every Spidey villain has been hit and miss.

Spidey is like the nice guy at work who welcomes all the new heros and villains into the Marvel universe, and the old regulars habitually come by his cubicle to hang out.

When you have a revolving door of guests characters, they're not always going to get the best story, but the Symbiotes have their place and I find Carnage to be a very interesting force in Spider-Man lore.

Now, I haven't consistently read Spider-Man since the mid-late 90's, and maybe things have changed. In my time (old man) Carnage's joyful brutality really played well of of Spider-Man's efforts to truly do good.

I'm surprised with all the Mysterio love. It would be awesome if he was the villain in the MCU Spidey movie.

Hey, it could happen. They're looking at villains who haven't been in Spider-Man movies so far and he'd certainly fit the bill. They're already considering Vulture for the first one and he isn't as well known as a lot of the others.

I have to go with Venom. Usually a villain with the same powers as the hero can be boring, but since he has such a diverse rogue gallery, actually having someone who can match him and bypass his Spider Sense is exciting. How they make him fall more as an anti-hero due to his motivations is intriguing. While he takes it to an extreme, Spider-Man IS responsible for ruining his life, even if he didn't mean to hurt him on purpose. That's why the movie that had him pissed me off. They turned Venom into Carnage and removed any sympathy the character had.
