    Every Marvel Villain Ranked From God-Awful To God-Tier

    Praying that Thanos can *snap* half of these away.

    The MCU has a lot of movies now — some are really good, and some are Thor: The Dark World. We’ve now been introduced to a wide spectrum of villains, and for every Loki, there is an Ivan Vanko waiting for his bird.

    These villains can really make or break the movie they’re in. I’ve decided to include the main villains for each movie — so sorry, no room for you, Children of Thanos.
