Which villain do you think is better sympathetic or chaotic. And which one do you like more.

good example of chaotic would be joker from dark knight and sympathetic would be killermonger in black panther or thanos in infinity war

Overall, sympathetic villains. But Joker is my favorite villain, so...

I like a mix of both, but I find it pretty annoying how many people seem to think villains -have- to be sympathetic to be good. MCU Thanos is the most recent example of this; sure he was good the way he was done, but I honestly just wanted the batshit insane Mad Titan who wipes out half the universe because he has a hard on for death, not one with a saviour complex.

I feel like sympathetic villains are better characters but chaotic villains are more fun to watch

Joker is the greatest comic book villain so I’ll go with chaotic.

Tho Magneto is sympathic and great.

Sympathetic usually, but like pipxeroth said I would have preferred Thanos as an actually Mad Titan that is just insane.

that probably would have not worked for the movies tho.

Execution matters.
