I don't know if this has been brought up in this way, but I'm doing this anyway.

As has been mentioned, The Necromancer is in the top 50 of known Supervillains. The purpose of this thread is simple: Ideas for other members of this list. I'll start it out with mine.

Legion (Bloody Mary, White Blood, Giggling Horde)

Appearance: Female young adult albino, generally somewhat attractive, there may be some small variation, but each instance tries to look like the original. They all have a habit of giggling on and off, more or less constantly.

Power: Regen 5 base, various instances of Legion may have other powers as well. Each instance carries several sheathed daggers with their own blood inside the sheath.

Background: The original Legion was a albino woman who was also a severe hemophiliac. There was an accident in the seventies that left her bleeding out, and the hero on the scene, a Regen 5 decided to try and save her life with a transfusion. The regenerator blood not only healed her, but the regen power carried over. Unfortunately, brain damage from the conversion process drove her insane and she dedicates her life to 'sharing the wealth', primarily targeting mutants. She does her best to kidnap mutants and infect them with her regen blood, and hypnotizes/brainwashes them into carrying out the mission. Only about 5% of those infected become Regenerators themselves, the rest become 'drones' that serve the infectors.

SOP in fighting Legion is shoot first, second, third, and burn the bodies from a distance. No questions are asked. All those who engage in hand to hand are required to have extensive screening to make sure that they haven't become infected.

There are three Legion that are to be truly feared. Most mutants converted lose most of their powers, reducing them to level one or two at best, but three somehow managed to keep their full powers in addition to becoming Regen 5. One is a Exemplar 5, another Energizer 4, and the third is a PDP 4.

Lethal force is required when facing any Legion, when they tried to place those they caught into Mt. Prometheus, a break-out resulted in 20% prisoner infections, and 30% guard infections.

(Edit to add some things, got called away to work.)

Dr. Diabolik, Gizmatic, Devilmaster... I'm sure other Bad Seeds also have well known relatives. And we can look at those lists of BIT-fixers that Ayla has requested. And the founders of Grand Hall of Sinister Wisdom (hope I got that one right), Pater Tempus for example.

Okay, if you guys wanna have some fun here, I'm gonna sit back and ENJOY!

Who the heck would the #1 most wanted villain be? Gizmatic's out now, since he's not really a villain anymore, same with Lord Paramount, if he ever was one. Necromancer's canonically lower down the list. Dr. Diabolic? Or perhaps Dragonrider's dad?

#1? Deathlist.

Also on the list. Dead, but the CIA idiot is keeping Tennyo from getting the award: Killbot.

What of the Chessmaster?

I am not paranoid homonyms are out to get me. Homophones, Heteronyms, Polysemes, Capitonyms and words with similar spelling it is all a vast conspiracy.

Or Nimbus.

And Dr Bubonic's likely to be high up as well, even if Jobe is pretty sure that he's dead.

All these are true, and interesting. However, I was thinking of new villains that could be thrown against people in fanfic, or in the Canon authors like them, to have mess with Team Kimba, or others.

Note: I'm going by supposition only here, so take this as an 'informed guess'.

Deathlist is probably in the top 10 but probably not #1. It's true he's the ultimate cyborg assassin but in the end he's a grunt, not a mover and shaker.

Chessmaster probably isn't in the top 10 but he'd be somewhere on the list. His status probably got bumped up a few notches after Halloween 2006 though.

Nimbus is the new kid on the block, he hasn't had a chance to make a bad name for himself. Also, the Halloween debacle got pinned on Chessmaster, so all in all he broke even out of the invasion.

Dr. Palm probably isn't even on the list because everyone wants to keep his existence a secret. Which brings up an interesting point, most of the really, really, dangerous folks probably aren't on the list.

Number #1 would have to be some sort of high-profile mastermind and probably isn't the ruler of any country (and thus any form of diplomatic status). His goals probably include the destruction/conquest of Earth or some other immediate threat to the world and he'd have to have followers. He, or she, is also probably an independent operator ie not part of an organization such as the Syndicate or the Lodge of Sinister Wisdom. On top of all that, they'd have to have the power to back up the threat they present.

I actually don't think we've made anyone up who fits the bill.

Dr Bender I wonder if anyone with the characteristics you mention would actually be on the list. Anyone who's that powerful would either be keeping a low profile like The Bastard or would be fighting whole armies on a regular basis.

On that theory Deathlist could be number 1.

To take an example from the Marvel U, the kind of guy I'm thinking about is Magneto. From real life, we have Bin Laden.

They don't have any official status, are the heads of terrorist organizations and put themselves against the governments of the world to achieve some sort of broad goal. But they're also more than men, they're icons of their organization and beliefs. You don't get that without a certain amount of media visibility.

I'm thinking about the kind of villain from the comic books that pops up, wrecks or steals something flashy (nukes, bioweapons, spaceships, big computers) in front of television cameras, then pops back where he came from without a trace. Such attacks will generally include ranting speeches, videotaped messages of defiance and mass property damage.

Of course, the signature of terrorism is the complete inability to actually achieve its stated goals.

I figure that to get that #1 spot, you're going to have to make yourself a political target. Politicians and law enforcement have to want to be seen to be doing something about you (note, not actually doing something about you, just being seen to be doing something). That way they can safely ignore the problem that created you.

Deathlist doesn't fit this profile. All Deathlist cares about is pitting himself against an ever-smaller list of powerful mutants in personal combat. He may have trained the Tiger Guard, but in the end the Tigers are loyal to the Syndicate for the most part. He's more like Hannibal Lector, who I believe only hit #7?

I guess the leaders of the Syndicate or the Lodge of Sinister Wisdom might qualify. But they have not been introduced in canon yet.

Well, consider Cataclysm.

An 'A-plus' level threat who has never been caught, only stopped. Just barely. Cataclysm doesn't even look human, and doesn't seem to have human motives. He/it/whatever usually makes an attempt to destroy one or more entire biomes using freaky technology, gets stopped, and vanishes. His death toll makes Dr. Diabolik look like a Nobel Peace Prize winner. Lady Astarte - with lots of help - has stopped him half a dozen times, but he's injured her and/or killed some of her super-partners in most of these meetings. We're talking Bad Bad Leroy Brown here.

Cataclysm has not been seen for about four years, and no one knows what the heck he/it is up to. Cataclysm makes the Necromancer look like a street thug by comparison.

Similarly, the top evil bio-devisors are on that list. Doctor Bubonic, the Prionator, Influenza, Deathmaiden, ... They're all threats on a global scale.

Well, maybe not Deathmaiden. She's a really odd case. She pops up about every twenty years, wages massive bio-terrorism campaigns for 5-10 years, and vanishes, supposedly *finally* killed by the good guys. It hasn't stuck. She first appeared in 1929 and between 1929 and 1936 unleashed 5 bio-warfare attacks that killed *thousands* in the Baltimore / Washington DC area before (apparently) being stopped. Then she came back in 1949. And 1968. And 1989. So that would mean... Uh-oh. Every time she comes back, she ups the scale of death and destruction, and it's always germ warfare. Now that's an A-level threat.

You have to think BIG (or be big) if you want an A-level threat rating.

So the ratings above A+ would be S, SS, SSS and X? Very Happy

Obviously Team Kimba won't run out of matching opponents anytime soon Wink
Even with some more powerups for Fey and Sara, a guy that can give Lady Astarte plus her allies trouble will make for a good fight.
And Deathmaiden really needs some special treatment by Tennyo to stay dead (I presume the Death Blow would settle that problem)
Evil or Very Mad
