The palm of the favorite villain of Internet users is awarded to…


In superhero films, we obviously put forward the hero or heroes as well as their acolytes. But what defines a good superhero movie? Often overlooked in the past, villains are slowly taking center stage. A logical situation, because without them, our favorite heroes would simply be unemployed.

Some of them are so popular that they have the right to their own series (or movie). Based on 3 criteria, namely, the number of appearances on Instagram, the number of Google searches and the number of appearances in films and series, Electric Ride On Cars has made a ranking of the most popular villains of Internet users :

3 — Maleficent

Performed by Angelina Joliethe witch ranks 3rd in the ranking, despite her low number of appearances.

2—Catwoman

Coming from the DC universe, Catwoman is the second female antagonist in this ranking. Introduced as a burglar in the Batman universe, Catwoman navigates a gray area between good and evil and is not presented as the epitome of evil.

Recently appeared in The Batmanthe catwoman also has her own series and owes her second place to her 18 appearances.

Honorable Mention — Loki

Second on Instagram and Google, Loki (MCU) only appears at the fifth position of the general ranking because of his lack of appearance. This ambitious, charismatic villain full of flaws has won the hearts of viewers with his repartee and his natural charm.

Alternating between good and bad deeds, Loki is an ambivalent character that we were able to discover in a different light thanks to the series of the same name. Loki. There is no doubt that in the future this character should gain places in the rankings.

1 — Joker

It is therefore no surprise that he stands out as the favorite super villain of Internet users. And you, who is your favorite antagonist? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments.
