Guardians of the Galaxy Chukwudi Iwuji is High Evolutionary

I mean, that's my assumption, yeah. It's possible there isn't a Big Bad, per se, but I do think he's the antagonist. My suspicion is he'll be connected to Rocket's origins in the MCU as well.
 
Best MCU villain in a long time. I wonder if this is what they had in mind for Kang. A true mad scientist.
 
Gee Gunn wasn’t lying when he said Chukwudi would steal the job. What a phenomenal actor. Easily the best villain of phase 4
We're in Phase 5 now, and since the only competition is Kang and MODOK in Quantumania the bar was pretty low. :o
 
I'm so glad that Gunn didn't really try to make him someone with many redeeming qualities. Sometimes a good megalomaniac is all that's really needed, especially against a group that is trying to do good like the Guardians.
 
Somewhat disappointed they jettisoned his human scientist background. That could've added the dimension to make him a little more sympathetic, but whatever. They leaned into him being a megalomaniacal mad scientist, and that was fine.

I hope we haven't seen the last of High Evolutionary. I hope we do learn he was actually a human born on Earth.
 
This dude is a great actor.

Possibly a top 5 MCU villain.
 
For me he didn't need to be sympathetic, but I wish the role had more depth in it. To me he was just some generic one dimensional scientist. There was no compleXity to his character.

There's a weird overlap between the two when it comes to powers and abilities, which is a bit unfortunate, imo.

I'm fine with the choice here but given all the connections to Earth, it might have just made sense to say he was once a human. Arguably that would have raised questions that don't need answering in the MCU, but he lost his humanity a long time ago so it's technically irrelevant what planet he was from originally.

I think it would've made his quest for perfection a bit more relevant along with creating a whole planet called Counter-Earth, which the movie basically made a mix of Counter-Earth and Half-World from the comics.
 
The actor was so good at being evil.
 
Thought he was great, very hateable I wanted to strangle him a few times.
 
They were pretty vague about his fate. There's always a chance he could return.
He seemed like a 1 and done villain.

Anyway, I don't read comics aside from the X-Men. But I did see High Evolutionary in a X-Men story arc. I think it ran for 4 issues, that version looked pretty cool compare to what we got in this movie. The movie version looked like a regular guy in comparison.
