Definitely Venom. Some of my mild comic book fan friends of mine didn't even know anything about Shazam.

Venom

Shame tho since there was a time where Billy was more popular than Batman and Superman

Venom for sure as he is the arch-nemesis of the most popular comic book character.

It should be Shazam but oh well.

@mr_shazam0920: green goblin or doc Ock is Spider-Man’s arch enemy, they both messed with Pete’s personal life more than once

Definitely Venom. Not only has he been one of Spider-Man's most famous villains for years, but he's been in 2 hit movies.

Shazam has only very recently entered (or, to be more accurate, reentered) the mainstream.

Venom.

I knew who Shazam was but didn't care for him and my friends didn't know about him and didn't really care much for him.

However I have known about Venom for quite some time and think he's cool.

Venom is arguably the most popular villain at the Marvel. The only one that comes close to popularity is Magneto. Both were transformed into anti-heroes and/or anti-villains to widen their appeal so they could sell more toys, tee-shirts, branded school supplies, etc.. They made a Venom movie without Spider-Man and it still made a ton of money. And, it's not even a really good movie!

@skywalker95: Green Goblin is Spidey's archenemy, no one's hurt Peter more than him.

@supermanthor: Doom is an “Inside Baseball” type character whereas people who follow the medium know and love him, but those outside comic fandom are only aware of him from a couple of poor movies. Thanos used to be in the same boat, but being in the 4th biggest movie of all time will change that. Most kids don’t want to dress up as Dr. Doom for Halloween, play with Dr, Doom toys, wear Dr. Doom tee shirts or think that Dr. Doom is wicked cool. That could change with one good showing, but for now Victor is an also-ran.

Venom and it's not even close. I love Venom, he is one of the characters that got me into comics as a kid. Nowadays though I like Shazam more.

If we're going by their movie counterparts i'd say venom considering it made more money in the bank
