    Default Marvel's last, best villain?

    Hi, everyone.

    As I sit here thinking about Marvel comics, I'm at a loss to think of a new villain introduced recently that seems to have any staying power.

    Who's the most recent new Marvel villain that you think could be around still in the next ten years?

    I hope I don't derail it, I was just in that kind of mood. If I were to answer it seriously, The Maker is an obvious choice.

    Would he count as "new?" Just an alternate Reed Richards, and that's nearly as old as you can get in Marvel's history.

    So far, we have an executive, an award-winning writer, and three alternate versions of old characters.

    Maybe we've identified one of Marvel's problems. . . .

    The Black Order will probably become significantly more prominent after the next Avengers movie, and they were only created a couple of years ago.


    I think a lot of writers would rather reinvent or spin off of existing marvel villains as opposed to creating new characters. Save those for creator owned works.

    You have a pretty good point here, though most creator-owned books are not the superhero-y sorts of books Marvel publishes.

    First Firmament from Ultimates.
    or
    Golden Skull from USAvengers.

    *A new villain group that sticks around for awhile longer could be the Freelancers.

    As a villain, he's newer. I also was going to echo the suggestions of HydraCap.

    As Black Panther villains, I wouldn't be surprised if Tetu and Zenzi stick around. They are visually distinct and have some powers that can be used interestingly.

    Of the books I read, the only other one I could think of with possible staying power is Muse (the Inhuman serial killer in Daredevil), but that feels more like a Charles Soule pet character than a overall character.
