Who Is The Greatest Villain of the MCU Phase 4? | A Look At Some Incredible Villains

Story Highlights
  • Mysterio
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Thanos
  • Loki

The MCU has almost every genre covered now, but with so many heroes, it’s only logical to have some villains to balance things out.

It’s fun to have a superhero, but what would they do if there were no bad guys to defeat? The answer must be no, right?

Therefore, let us list the most infamous villains in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Number 4: Mysterio

There have been occasions when the mere presence of a fantastic performer in the role of the villain was sufficient to make for a memorable MCU bad guy. This is more evident than ever in Spider-Man: Far from Home, as Jake Gyllenhaal portrays a multifaceted villain who is a master of illusions and possesses a wide variety of special abilities.

Number 3: Scarlet Witch 

In Avengers: Age of Ultron, she was first portrayed as a radicalized villain who finally went corrupted and utilizes her extraordinary talents for evil to make her impossible wishes a reality.

Unsettling as it was to see a hero character, we’d all been pulling for taking such a drastic turn for the worst, it ultimately enriched her character.

Don’t get us wrong; Wanda did awful actions and murdered many people in this movie. However, she was fantastic as the antagonist since she demonstrated the full extent of the Scarlet Witch’s power.

Number 2: Thanos 

The idea of the heroes taking on Thanos has been dangled in front of Marvel fans since 2012, and subtle clues dropped in films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron had built anticipation for Infinity War.

And owing to some incredible action scenes that brought the MCU to a new level, Thanos lived up to expectations as the monster everyone thought he would be. The drama and Josh Brolin’s performance were both excellent.

Number 1: Loki

Even though he’s a true villain, we can’t help but respect him since he exudes charm, positivity, and a “delicious” (Paul Bettany’s word) approach to his wickedness. And this someone is responsible for Coulson’s death. We may not agree with his humor, but when he makes one of those one-liners or gets up to applaud when Hulk smashes Thor, it’s hard not to join the fun.

Tom Hiddleston’s interpretation of the character’s demeanor has been praised, maybe even more so than the character himself. Even though he starts as a bad guy, Loki is terrific because he grows and changes through time. 

Who is your favorite villain or anti-hero? Hard to decide, we know, but we all can agree about how great, at being evil, these characters were.
