I know we have a Spider-Man forum, so if this is moved, it's moved but let's see if it stays here.

Aside from the X-Men, Spidey has such an iconic rogues gallery.

I want to see Scorpion, Hydro, Carnage, in full glory soon!

As for the poll, Doc Ock takes my Vote!
 
Tough choice between Dafoe's Goblin and Keaton's Vulture.
 
Doc Ock all the way.
 
It was between the Vulture and Doctor Octopus, but in the end Doctor Octopus got my vote. I found him very sympathetic, and Alfred Molina's performance was perfection.
 
Vulture wins for me. No excuses for his motivations (like "heightened aggression" or "inhibitor chips"), just good writing.
 
Doc Ock but I accidentally voted for Green Goblin, either way those are the best. Vulture is the third best but there is a considerable gap between him and the first 2, a solid villain but he only got interesting until the third act.
 
I think that Doc Ock had the most tragic story displayed in the film and had clear motivations for his actions. Poor guy lost his wife while trying to do something genuinely helpful to humanity only to fail because of hubris. Once he turned evil he was a legit bad ass! Alfred Molina killed it! SO good!
 
The "the arms are what turned him evil" with Doctor Octopus was lame to me. He's still ok but not great.
Vulture seemed like the most realistic of the villains, with real world motivations that many can sympathize with (provide for my family, stick it to the government), and was played with excellence by Keaton (because that's the only way he ever acts, with excellence)
 
Doc Ock for sure. He's still my second favorite live action film portrayal of a Marvel villain after Magneto.

The only way I would have to think about it is if you include Kingpin as a live action "Spidey" villain even though it was television and he had nothing to do with Spider-Man. Ock might lose that one. I'd have to seriously think about it.
 
I said Vulture. Now, I like Doc Ock. But my issue with his portrayal is that imo, Ock serves a purpose in the comics and cartoons. And that purpose (again in my opinion) is not "surrogate uncle with a Darth Vader redemption story."

Vulture on the other hand, I never cared about. I never even quite understood what being a vulture even meant to this guy. This movie gave me the "aha!" moment of, "he's a vulture picking up the scraps!" They did a fantastic job with a (i mean dare I say?) B-villain. Whereas Raimi did also did a fantastic job, but with a fantastic villain.

So I mean, it's close, but Vulture edges Ock out for me.
 
It's a disappointing statement on how the other villains haven't matched up that Ock and Vulture are hoovering up all the votes! Ock is easily best for me and SM2 also easily my favourite SM movie.
 
Doc Ock is great visually, makes for awesome action scenes and is probably the best 'mentor turned evil' Peter has had over the six movies. However, the character has so much corny dialogue - he tells Peter cringe-worthy platitudes about love, about science being for the benefit of mankind, and about not wanting to die a monster. On the plus side, I love the scenes of Molina talking to his tentacles (I wrote that bit carefully), and the idea to make them sentient was genius.

:lmao:
 
Overall, Green Goblin is the best Spider-Man villain, but movie-wise, Ock is the best. Followed by Goblin, then Vulture
 
Green Goblin, the best spidey villain
 
Doc Ock is still my favorite villain in movies. Green Goblin (Norman) and Vulture are second to him. The worst is Electro. What where they thinking when they made Amazing Spiderman 2 ? Everything from the script to the acting is a failure with this character.
 
I never liked Molina in the role. Maybe it's because I had recently seen him in that horrible sit-com he had but he never felt right in the role to me, even though his performance wasn't bad. To a lesser extent I didn't like the change of him being evil because of his arms.

Dafoe and Keaton were much better fits so Goblin and Vulture are the top guys for me. Unfortunately Green Goblin looked terrible. Vulture was of course changed as well, like Doc Ock, but those changes were for the better.
 
I really liked Molina. But I guess I wish Lizard and Ock's backstories had been reversed.

Ock gets the slightly more mysterious, slightly less sympathetic backstory.

And Lizard gets the wife and child, super sympathetic backstory.

At least, I feel that would have been slightly more enjoyable. And still will be, if they choose to do it this way in the Tom Holland series.
 
The problem with the Lizard was the look. I was so disappointed with that.
 
Vulture, Goblin, then Doc Ock, then Lizard.

Harry gets an honorable mention - he had a great arc in two and Franco still turned in a good performance in three.

Goblin's final fight with Spidey has yet to be surpassed. Vulture had a great M.O. and backstory - moreso than Ock. Ock had a fantastic origin scene with the Evil Dead homage.
