Missing Paste Pot Pete. Spider-Man has been a treasure trove for shiatty villains for 50 years, that's why they keep resurrecting villains from the 60s.

Stegron was awesome in Marvel Team-Up.

And Spain died this week. Never saw an approved link.

The Spot was awesome.
 
2012-12-01 09:38:21 AM  
The Spot may look silly, but he has been properly elevated. Mark Waid is currently using his powers in Daredevil for some pretty devious stuff.

Specifically drug smuggling:

Fancy Dan and Ox left off? Those guys were in an awful lot of comics. And the frog guy was bad enough they had a tangled web about his son getting bullied in school because his dad was such a lame villain

The Spot, Swarm, Stegron and The Grey Goblin do not deserve to be on that list.

White Rabbit, Morbius the Living Vampire, The Grizzly and Every Symbiote Not Named Venom do belong on that list.
 
2012-12-01 11:11:55 AM  
List fails without Joe Quesada listed on it.
 
2012-12-01 11:19:06 AM  
Wait. What's wrong w/ Carnage?

/sure someone will hate-splain it to me.

This list fails for lack of Peter Parker's radioactive sperm.

Submitter is 100% right. Carnage and all of the "hey, Venom sold books so let's make a million exactly like him" pieces if lazy writing trash are horrible and worthless.

If you like Carnage, you are bad and you should feel bad.

Ha! That was great. I love the falling, almost-slide whistle sound when he "shoots" his violin. Very Ren & Stimpy-esque.

Sam Raimi on the list? How about whoever was responsible for the latest reboot that I vaguely remember happening? It happened right? Anyone even bother seeing it?

I wonder what they were on in the 60s.
 
2012-12-01 01:08:21 PM  
Carnage admittedly has some heavy 90s EXTREME baggage going for him but he is still leagues better than stuck-in-the-60s rejects like Electro, Shocker, Vulture, Rhino, Scorption, etc etc... Even his supposedly arch-villains like the Green Goblin are bland and have no archetypal symbolism with regards to spidey.

The list is all over the place, there is a world of difference between the sheer lameness of Kangaroo and Big Wheel vs the mere mediocrity of Spidercide or Iguana. And fark you for daring to put Swarm and Stegron on the list at all.

Those guys are 1000X lamer than Swarm. I mean, a Nazi made of Killer Bees? How is that not awesome?

OMG, I forgot about that lame waste of ink. He's just some dude in a giant warthog costume (with an electrified mane!) with the amazing mutant power to know how to pilot anything.

No, that is not a typo. His power is that he will intuitively understand how to fly a submarine, helicopter or space shuttle even if he never drove one before. It's like someone took Forge or Cypher's powers and managed to suck the awesomeness out of them.

the opposite of charity is justice: Carnage admittedly has some heavy 90s EXTREME baggage going for him but he is still leagues better than stuck-in-the-60s rejects like Electro, Shocker, Vulture, Rhino, Scorption, etc etc...

Vulture and Rhino got much better and cooler, especially during "The Gauntlet" storyline and Mac Gargan not only switched back from Venom to Scorpion, but he got severely upgraded.

There is a certain logic to that, though (not much, but just enough to justify a nerdish post). If mutations are random, awesomeness is not guaranteed. There should be a population of mutants with lame powers (I'm not counting the morlocks, seeing as how they get ugly but frequently awesome) that outnumbers the mutants with awesome powers (I've been out if the loop, but I think the X-books tried creating a mutie-ghetto thing based on this idea before Wanda demutiefied almost everybody).

Lose the spandex, and Razorback's powers would be very useful. You could make a very good living with "World's Best Pilot" powers, a lot easier than with powers that are useful in battling super villains.

Now that I'm over-thinking this, I might as well continue (such is the Way of the Nerd). Add a tiny amount of business acumen, and one could make beautifully obscene amounts of cash running a Rent-a-Mutant employment/temp agency for people with lame powers. Got healing powers, but only at the bumps/bruises/strains level? I could hook you up with a guy who runs a sports injury clinic. Able to communicate with animals, but not control them? Hellllooooo, Beverly Hills pet psychologist! All you got is super speed-reading? Here's the number of a publishing house that's looking for an editor.

This would have been a cool premise for its own humorous short-term series a la "Damage Control."

Also, whoever said Rhino, Vulture, and Scorpion are lame, you are dead wrong.

Read the "Wild Cards" book series. There are a lot of fun Mutants/Metas with seemingly useless powers, at least if you're looking for hero stuff. How some use their "Deuce" status, like the guy who lives in a junkyard, because his power is the ability to eat garbage, covers some of your ruminations.

Pretty sure the "mutant" thing was added long after his original appearance, because, in the 90s, everyone was a mutant. (I think he was in She-Hulk when John Byrne did it and it was funny...)

However, no villain, ever, anywhere, will be as lame as Tapping Tommy, especially when you realize he took out both the Hulk and Dr. Strange, two of Marvel's most powerful characters.

I don't know how old Subby is, but it seems he's too young to remember how cool Carnage was.
I was alive and reading comics when Carnage came in and it was a blessed sigh of relief because they had neutered Venom so much, he was about as scary as the Borg were in Voyager.
He's not that great now, but back then, he was what Venom should have been.
