EdgeRunner: Nicholas D. Wolfwood: List fails without Ozymandias, from 'Watchmen'.  How many others of these losers actually managed to *pull off* their Eeeevil Plots (tm)?  That alone should have nailed top spot for him.

Nope, the list would fail with him. He's a great villain in the comic, but he was horribly miscast in the movie. Ozy needed to be a likable movie idol type to sell the twist ending, not a skinny, untrustworthy schemer with an on-again-off-again Eastern European accent. Weirdly enough, it was one of the very few comic book roles that would have been perfect for George Clooney.


Nope, Veidt shouldn't be on the list because he wasn't the villain. Everybody forgets this is the guy that saved Humanity, indeed the entire biosphere higher than deep sea bacteria, from nuclear eradication.

The villain in Watchmen is Nixon, his Soviet counterpart, and the whole Us vs Them mentality of our species. Adrian Veidt is the goddamn savoir of Humanity.

True, if he'd had any honor as a man he would have died in Times Square along with the thousands he killed, but there's no denying he averted nuclear Armageddon.

Chiquidin: PizzaJedi81: aszure: No love for Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor?

I have to admit that Kevin Spacey's Lex Luther was tough to swallow. He played it so well and you really got to see his psychotic side which Gene Hackman never really gave life to. Hackman was a good humor kinda guy to watch go against Superman, Spacey just was unpredictable and that made him even more evil than Hackman. I didn't mind Superman returns for that reason. Spacey was awesome in it.


Spacey and Parker Posey were the highlights of a dismal movie.
