Either Ultron or Kang. Loki is for Thor and Thanos is for Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell).

This is a tough one

  • Loki did start the entire thing but he barely fights the Avengers. He actually wants to be on the team more than battle them
  • Thanos does come across as their bad guy but he is always greater than the team itself, involving much more since the 90s
  • Kang has a good shot at it
  • Ultron wins it since he was created by an Avenger and has plagued many of its members since.

I think he only had that one run in with Mar-Vell in his first story. Then Mar-Vell died. So yes he debuted in his comic but I think since then he's been more of a universal sort of villain. He is the champion of death so to speak so his real enemy is pretty much life or even Adam Warlock given that Warlock was meant to be the champion of life to oppose him and often has been the lynchpin to foiling his plans.

Probably Ultron, but the others are close.

I would say Ultron due to being a specific and often recurring Avengers villain.

Kang is also up there.

Thanos is a Marvel itself villain.

Loki is more Thor specific than Avengers in general.

Ultron. Thanos stomps them every time and it's not interesting.

Ultron, with Kang as a close second.

The Masters of Evil are too Captain America centric and Thanos is more an archenemy of the entire Marvel Universe.

@spambot: I said that because his rivalry with Mar-Vell was very interesting and nice. But yeah, maybe he's really Adam Warlock's archnemesis.

The one with no strings. He fights the team more often than most other villains presented and has had arguably the greatest impact on The Avengers. I would actually make Kang a close second for similar reasons. I was originally going to say Thanos, but they don't fight him that often and he's more of a cosmic scale threat than anything.

Well Utron is the most obvious with kang being a close second and Thanos is more of enemy on the cosmic marvel heroes like guardians of the galaxy and what not so Thanos is more of a general marvel villain.

Kang. 100%. Here are some reasons why:


- When IGN did their top 25 Avengers storylines, Kang took the #1,9,10 and 19 story arcs on the list. Ultron had one story to Kang's four.

- When CBR did their vote of the top 50 Avengers stories, Ultron Unlimited was #4, The only other Ultron stories to rank were The Bride of Ultron at 21, #49, The Masters of Evil II arc where he debuted. Kang has stories ranked at 5 (Avengers Forever), 7 (Celestial Madonna Saga), 8 (Kang Dynasty), 24 (Young Avengers), 32 (Let the Games Begin) and 39 (Time and Time Again.) Ultron with three stories to Kang's 6.

Newsarama's top 10. Same thing. Kang Dynasty at 2, Avengers Forever at 7, Young Avengers at 8. Ultron only represented by Ultron Unlimited at 4.

So, it's not just MY opinion that Kang has more classic stories than Ultron. It's a published opinion, and while I'd hesitate to call Ultron a character with one great story, you start to see a pattern where Kang is celebrated for a wider range of stories.

Kurt Busiek loves both characters, but recently admitted that he leans towards Kang as the #1 Avengers villain. Kurt Busiek is arguably the greatest Avengers writer of all-time.

The other characters aren't even on the same level in terms of 616 Avengers comics. It's Kang 1, Ultron 2, and then 3 is closer to 10 than to 2.

Kang has appeared in 111 issues of The Avengers, and Ultron has been in 80.
