On Monday, I asked you all who your favourite main villain of the summer was in a comic book movie; and now the results are in. The choices were between, Loki from The Avengers, The Lizard from The Amazing Spider-Man and Bane from Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. But, the real battle of the poll was between The Avengers' Loki and TDKR's Bane, while The Lizard was left in the dust with only 2% of CBM fans in his favour. So, which big baddie won the proceedings with 4,125 (54%) of the total votes? Check out the full results down below!



Congratulations to Bane and The Dark Knight Rises!

Went with Loki. Bane was good though.
comiccow6 - 8/1/2012, 3:22 PM
Surprised, considering Bane was revealed as a goon in the end. So was Loki, but he was doing his own thing too.
TheBigBoss917 - 8/1/2012, 3:22 PM
Sorry Loki provided no valid threat to any of the team members, Bane no question.
LucasMend - 8/1/2012, 3:23 PM
Both were good in their own ways. Still TDKR is nowhere as good as TDK, and Bane is no good as Ledger's Joker
DraculaX - 8/1/2012, 3:23 PM
I voted for both.

Durf - 8/1/2012, 3:23 PM
Voted Loki. Bane was cool though, at least until the end of the movie. But I won't go there...

@IM53: Well said and I completely agree
santoanderson - 8/1/2012, 3:25 PM
Ha! The Lizard is barely in these results. I bet whoever the bad guy in Ghost Rider 2 was, would've ranked higher...
JDUKE25 - 8/1/2012, 3:26 PM
@comiccow I see it as Bane was to Talia, as Vader was to the Emperor. Except the Emperor didn't love Vader like Bane loved Talia ;).
Joker08 - 8/1/2012, 3:27 PM
I'm surprised the Lizard got that many votes...

@yoss:
And no one cared who he was until he put it on :)
HelaGood - 8/1/2012, 3:28 PM
ok.
OtakuPapi - 8/1/2012, 3:31 PM
Loki was much more engaging from an emotional stand point. Bane didn't have enough time to develop otherwise he would've been epic if it was his intention to play mind games with Bruce.A little too straight forward for me!
GoILL - 8/1/2012, 3:32 PM
@IM53 well said man totally agree. I'm really shocked that no one has cried about these results yet but i'm sure it's coming.
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/1/2012, 3:32 PM

I liked Bane better. Loki was more of a been there done that villain for me. Effective, but not fascinating at all. He was actually really boring in my opinion save for that one scene with Black Widdow when he was in captivity.
UrbanKnight - 8/1/2012, 3:34 PM
Horns are cool and all but BANE!
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/1/2012, 3:34 PM
I would have them ranked:

Bane
Lizard
Loki

I know hardcore fans will jump down my throat, but there just wasn't anything to Loki. He was pretty much the same character from Thor. However instead of wanting to rule Asgard he wanted to rule Midgard. There was little depth to the character or his motivations.
Moriarty117 - 8/1/2012, 3:35 PM
I'm with JDuke on this one, I don't see how Bane was a goon. Here's a good definition of what he is, along with many of the great villains of fiction:

Just because the guy is second to someone doesnt make him inferior. Loki was under Thanos, ya know.
webslinger2099 - 8/1/2012, 3:35 PM
loki has a lot af humor then lizard and bane, bane in

the football game said what a beautiful voice.

lizard?

and loki had fun nocking the avengers down.
Deschain12 - 8/1/2012, 3:35 PM
The poll reflects my own opinion. Bane was my favorite and Loki was really good too. I had high hopes for the Lizard but I was let down. Cool poll. Great year for CBMs.
Jollem - 8/1/2012, 3:36 PM
i dunno, after that grenade went off right next(point blank) to maria hill and all that happened was a cut or two, i really wasn't worried for anybody. was that a flashbang? if it was a flashbang or something like that i can see that happening. if it wasn't, worst grenade ever
Minato - 8/1/2012, 3:36 PM
Bane was killed by Catwoman
Loki was defeated by Hulk
Lizard was cured by Spiderman

I went with Hulk
Jer3miah - 8/1/2012, 3:37 PM
Whaaaaat? Lol, crazy how Loki sided with an alien army and is a god, himself, yet really lacked any on-screen intimidation. I loved him, but yes -- wasn't intimidating at all. Bane was creepy as hell, but Joker gave me chills, even though he was from before. Glad Bane won that one. Deserves it by far.
Marveluffugus - 8/1/2012, 3:39 PM
No brainer, Bane was the shiz. Loki was good in Thor, Avengers boring.
Pontius888 - 8/1/2012, 3:39 PM
1Bane
2Loki
3Lizard

-Bane was brutal and merciless...And the most epic villain ever.
-Loki was evil but not enough.
-Lizard was MEH...Total garbage.
UrbanKnight - 8/1/2012, 3:40 PM
Bane had presence. He dint even have to speak. When he did you listened.

Loki was just not very menacing to me. What RFBD said.

they effed up with Lizard. Had very few cool moments.
GodzillaKart - 8/1/2012, 3:40 PM
Bane was pretty intimidating, although I thought the Lizard was as well. Loki was great, but a bit of a let down after how awesome he looked in the previews.
Durf - 8/1/2012, 3:41 PM
lol @53.

Jollem - 8/1/2012, 3:45 PM
darth vader served the emperor. that didn't make vader less intimidating or any less of a threat to me
GodzillaKart - 8/1/2012, 3:47 PM
Lizard was fantastic. The only problem was that he and conners needed more screen time. Would have liked to see his wife and son as well.
0ptimusCrime - 8/1/2012, 3:48 PM
whahaha BANE!! WHAHAHA
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/1/2012, 3:49 PM
If your hair is longer in the sequel then you are supposed to be more evil. It's Hollywood 101.







SigmaCenturion - 8/1/2012, 3:49 PM
In the end it doesn't really matter both got taken out like bitches in the end and defeated in an utterly anti-climatic way. Also I'm not counting the lizard because I didn't see TASM.
Wolf0990 - 8/1/2012, 3:51 PM
loved both movies. but im a huge batman fan, so tdkr was my vote.
Jollem - 8/1/2012, 3:51 PM
i hoping for a good director's cut of tasm
Minato - 8/1/2012, 3:51 PM
A lot of the villains intimidating factors are directly driven by the script and director. Because the avengers was an assembly movie the focus had to be more on the heroes. I liked Loki not because he was intimidating but because he was sufficient. He traded blows with Hawkeye, Captain America, Ironman, Thor, and got smashed by Hulk. Not only that but he made a threat (aliens) that could make magic, tech, and time displacement believable together.
Bane defeated a retired, notably injured, and old Batman. Then took over the city for a couple of months waiting for a bomb to blow up. Then got blown up by Catwoman after getting his @$$ whooped by that same "retired, notably injured, and old Batman". Only this time he recovered from a broken spine with some shotty jail health care and 3 months healing and training.

I like Avengers and TDKR equally in quality and importance but Loki FTW.

Personally I think Ras Al Ghul was villain of the year.
UrbanKnight - 8/1/2012, 3:52 PM
Loki's eye gouging thing was about as scary as a cartoon to me.
Durf - 8/1/2012, 3:53 PM
@53, RFBD, and Ninja: lol

RorMachine - 8/1/2012, 3:54 PM
Loki and bane were both awesome in different ways, although I agree that Bane comes out slightly on top because we there was a bit of mystery about him, and we had seen Loki before. Lizard sucked imo.
Thegoddamnbatman52 - 8/1/2012, 3:57 PM
I liked the lizard he was certainly menacing enough though I wish he was a bit more vicious and violent like he is in the comics and was abit more developed
95 - 8/1/2012, 3:58 PM
My selection won. Great. Bane was a better antagonist. He broke the hero. Loki provided a good threat. He just ended up being a punching bag for the heroes. In a fist fight, Loki would beat Bane. But that wasn't the poll's question.
UrbanKnight - 8/1/2012, 4:01 PM
@Hush2010 Actually Bane is probably older that Batman.
