They say love and hate go together, don't they? This premise can also apply to some of the biggest villains in the Marvel Studios. Captivating, funny and sarcastic, they've won over fans in such a strong way that – even though they're almost always wrong – it's hard not to like them. See the list below.

It's no secret that since Loki's (Tom Hiddleston) first appearance in the Marvel Universe, the character has stole the show. Antagonist who is jealous of his brother Thor, the character won fans with his ironic way and his unusual tricks, making him one of the most surprising villains.
The fame and love for the villain, who is sometimes nice, was so much that it yielded his own production for him. The series Loki recently debuted on Disney+, with new episodes on Wednesdays, and features the character embarking on an adventure that takes place after the events of "Avengers: Endgame".
who watched"Falcon and the Winter Soldier” saw firsthand how it is impossible not to fall in love with Barão Zemo (Daniel Bühl). The accent, his antics, and, of course, his dance moves brought the character closer to MCU fans. However, we cannot forget that the events of the film “Captain America: Civil War” happened because of Zemo, who divided the Avengers. In addition, the villain was also responsible for the death of King T'Chaka.
Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan), from the movie “Black Panther", was one of the most memorable villains in the entire MCU. The son of N'Jobu – brother of the King of Wakanda, T'Chaka – he grew up in California (USA), where as a child he saw his uncle kill his father. That was the big reason Killmonger wanted to dethrone Black Panther (T'Challa), son of T'Chaka, from the post of king of Wakanda. In addition, the villain had a very big resentment of all the suffering that black people went through throughout history.
Ego, The Living Planet
the villain of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. two" was a character who, at first, seemed nice when he introduced himself as Peter Quill's father, but soon revealed his true intentions. Ego (Kurt Russell) wanted to carry out the so-called Expansion, in which he would recreate the universe in his own way and still kill all its inhabitants, leaving only him and Peter Quill alive. Ego can be considered one of the most powerful villains in the MCU, as he is a member of the Celestials.
We all have mixed feelings about Thanos (Josh Brolin), after all, he was responsible for some of the saddest moments in Marvel Studios movies. In “Avengers: Infinity War”, for example, he caused the most shocking and remarkable event in the entire MCU: with the help of the Infinity Stones, he killed trillions with a simple snap. But despite not seeming like it, Thanos also showed his sentimental side by taking Gamora in and raising her as a daughter. In addition, in "Avengers: Endgame" we saw that he did what he did because he believed it was best for the world, as he didn't want to see Earth's population be devastated like his homeland was.
