From Thanos to Green Goblin, Marvel has some of the most famous iconic villains in the comic world. They usually come with incredible superpowers, personalities and suits, but not all of them were actually that great. Let’s delve in and find out which are the most obscure, with the weirdest superpowers.
5 Marvel villains who deserve a comeback
How did we decide our top 5? We looked at powers, weirder the better, but also took into account personality and storyline. it was actually quite hard to only choose 5, turns out there are been many obscure super villains from marvel.
Hammerhead used to be one of marvel's big villains, but in recent years he has bene overlooked in favour of villains with more exciting powers. Hammerhead's name comes from his broad flattened head, his skull has a surgically implanted plate of Vibranium. This means his skull is super strong and he can use it to smash his opponents to pieces. His obscure power is head butting...
The Death-Throws are a team of evil jugglers, yes it turns out when you get enough jugglers together they become evil. Their superpower? Just juggling...well excellent juggling. They have to be one of the most ridiculous ideas for a villain, in this case a team of villains. They were around in the mid 80's causing problems for Captain America and Hawkeye.
Tigershark is a mostly forgotten villain with a sad backstory. he began as an Olympic swimmer called Todd Arliss, but he became paralyzed when trying to save a drowning man. Distraught he put himself through various experiments in a bid to get use of his legs back, and in the process turned himself into half human, half shark monster.
The 1960's were a strange time for comics with plenty of weird characters, but none so weird as Mister Doll. He wore the weirdest hat and his superpower was the power of voodoo, whatever that might be. h and he wore a really weird hat. He didn't really fit in with the other Marvel characters and as a result only app[eared a handful of times.
Doctor Bongo, such a silly idea for a villain, not sure where Marvel were going with this one. Not only does he have a silly name he also has a silly shaped head - just like our other weird villain, hammerhead. His head is bell shaped, and his power? Well he is going to ring his own head of course....we haven't seen him in Marvel comics for a while, surprise surprise!
