    Default Female Villains of Marvel Comics Appreciation

    With the announcement of IRON MAIDEN in the Black Widow film, I thought it'd be the right time to have an appreciation thread dedicated to all of the evil ladies of Marvel Comics! This includes anyone from the biggest of bads, like Hela or Dark Phoenix, to the iconic baddies like Mystique or Nebula, to the team-centric gals like Vertigo or Black Mamba, to the most obscure of obscure like Water Witch or Sushi! Who are your favorite female villains? Who do you think should be pushed more both in the comics and in the movies/TV shows?

    I chose "other." Why, it's Death, of course.

    Our main character, a socially awkward outcast, gains newfound confidence and arrogance before committing a string of horrid acts. He then wears a fancy suit and proceeds to dance like a maniac to music that isn't actually there playing around him.

    No love for Asbestos Lady? That's disappointing.

    Why no love for the Black Queen herself, Selene? Dark Phoenix couldn't have destroyed her reputation that badly.

    Isn't Selene currently playing second fiddle to other villains in Captain America?

    It's sad; most female villains at Marvel are treated very inconsistently. There are so few "big bad" female villains, and any that do pop up are usually debased in favor of a male villain.

    Or written badly.

    (Looking at you Hela in the relaunched Thor run).

    Voted for Titania as I'm a fan of She-Hulk and she's one of the few reoccurring villains for Jen, a powerhouse, knows whats she wants and fights like heck for whatever it is at that moment.

    One of my favorites was Madame Masque from the classic Iron Man run. More recently in Matt Fraction's Iron Man and then in Hawkeye she was jobbed by Pepper and then Kate Bishop. She has been appearing in Old Man Quill and at least she hasn't been treated shabbily there.

    I do miss the days of Fem-Loki. And the poll doesn't even mention Morgan Le Fey.

    Mystique is my favorite of the lot. So she gets my vote.

    I feel like superia should get a push. I feel like she has the qualities to be a top female mastermind villain in the marvel universe. I think the whole evil feminist/misandry thing probably works against her in the current social climate.
    Perhaps having her face off against other female heroes might be the way to use her. Villains that take the more extreme ideological position to heroes worked well for the likes of red skull and magneto.

    Superia might work well as a foe for captain marvel. Superia did take up the ms marvel identity in dark avengers for a but.
