I remember buying Hulk # 271 off the racks when I was 9. RR was a decently developed character, but it didn't stop me from being offended that a woodland creature was in my comic book about a fearsome rampaging monster.

You can give him a cigar, have him curse like a Stephen King novel, fire a big gun every 5 seconds.....but he's still a racoon. I don't mind animal-type characters like Ursa Major, but any character that screams "DISNEY XD" makes me wince.

Best Cinematic Villains: 1. Joker (TDK) 2. Magneto 3. Ultron 4. Red Skull 5. Loki

Worst Cinematic Villains: 5. Mandarin 4. Bane (B&R) 3. Laurel Hedare 2. Nuclear Man 1. Venom
