Red Skull

Can't get any more classic than a Nazi supervillain.

If I'm honest, I have to say Loki's the best, most fully formed villain.
But my votes goin to Killian mainly because I thought he was a much better villain than he gets credit for. He wasn't really the Mandarin, but he was appropriately slimy and intimidating, and more clearly defined than most of the other MCU villains.

Out of all Marvel's villains, Loki is their best developed. All of the others are generic "bad guys" with little characterization.

That said, he was really only well written in the first Thor. In Avengers he was just another one-liner spouting cliche, like the rest of Marvel's villains, and in TDW... I don't know what his role was supposed to be in that film. He didn't have much of a part in that film, and when he was onscreen it didn't feel like the writers knew what to do with him.

Vanko was close to being great, but it felt like he was in a completely different film when he was onscreen. It's never more apparent than in the jailhouse scene, when his and Tony's dialogue are so diametrically different.

Malekith is easily the worst of the MCU. I'm not sure what his actual screentime was, but he didn't have much of a presence in TDW and he never felt like a threat. I don't even really know what he was trying to accomplish or why. He was just a non-entity created for the sole purpose of having something for Thor to hit.

I disagree that Loki was a cliché in Avengers. While it is true that Loki was more megalomaniacal in that movie, there was still a lot of subtext to his actions. Ultimately, he was still a character motivated by a massive inferiority complex who was torn between hating his adopted brother and father, yet also wanted to prove his own worth to them and get their acknowledgment. Also, he was also motivated partially by fear of what Thanos would do to him if he failed. There was a lot more going on with him in that movie than some people realize. In TDW, he was essentially in his comic book "trickster mode." A guy who's precise motivations are hard to pin down and you don't know what he'll do next or who's side he's really on.

I go with Loki, but my first option would be the Winter Soldier, but I consider him an antihero.

Apart from Loki, they've all been pretty forgettable.

All above average villains to me that I enjoyed. I liked the Winter Solder as well but he wasn't really a villain IMO.

Alexander Pierce, followed closely by Winter Soldier. God damn did I love Captain America 2.

And I am one of the few who doesn't give a damn about Loki.
