Who is, in your opinion, some of Spider-man's most underrated villains?

I can say, with utmost certainty, that the Foreigner should be topping everyone's list.

Best Ever.
Best Ever.

Commit Murder for tea? Sure!

I'll go with Sandman on this. Reasons being, Spider-Man always seems to beat him by some chances there's some water or some other kinda mechanistic near by to give him the upper hand

Mysterio, anyone? In my opinion he's underrated way more than he should be.

Same goes for Shocker.

Mystero

Has the skills and tech to defeat Spider-Man. Has shown that he can even take down teams. Yet he is considered "fishbowl" and underused in my opinion.

How does that makes him underrated? He literally beat the crap out of Spidey.

Stiltman. He's so much a joke that he gets Shtick from both DD and Spidey.

But he's getting stronger (refer to DD #22)

Mysterio should be death, he shot him shelf in the head, Kraven style.

Stiltman is a DD villain not a Spider-Man villain.

I don't know. I read The Other and other (pun intended) spidey story arc, where he was. I think JMS portrayed him as amazingly powerful badass. I thought it was similiar to Juggernaut story arc, where Spidey tries to stop him, but can't do anything, just about 59 times more badass.

He's just not promoted as a major Spidey villian....

Probably because he died so soon. Too bad. I would love to see him again.

I really considered him Gambler, but I think he just got jobbed out by Bendis (who hasn't), and most people I know, seem not to take much notice of that incident.

He should be up there around Green Goblin tier in terms of notoriety. Dude is beast mode. I'll always consider him underrated until they finally put him in one of the life action movies. Hell he should be in the Sinister Six if nothing else.

Ha Blasphemy!!!!!! Green Goblin killed Gwen Stacey after knocking her up (Thanks JMS >.<).

But seriously he would make a great Villain for a live movie, and its people like him and Morlun which kinda makes me annoyed at how predictable and stale the Marvel Cinematic universe can be at times. Though I don't think he should join the current sinister six. That group is a joke now. Though if he was to take control of it, and update it with better villains, that could work.
