Villains I'd like to see the MCU Defenders (and their individual members) fight

Here are a couple of villains I'd like to see the various Marvel/Netflix shows tackle over time. These are only characters that haven't been addressed or referenced already in any of the Netflix shows (so characters like The Owl or Steel Serpent don't count).

List will probably change over time.

List items

  • Daredevil's second biggest rival, enemy of Elektra and one of the deadliest fighters in the Marvel universe. Bullseye is a must-villain for Daredevil's series.

  • Young, traumatized, superpowered woman who escaped an abusive relationship and has to deal with mental illness? Sound familiar? Typhoid Mary would make an excellent foil for Jessica Jones to fight.

  • With the premiere of Iron Fist and Doctor Strange, we will officially be introduced to Marvel's magical side. I personally think it would be awesome if the writer's took advantage of that in order to insert more magic in Netflix shows as well. The Hood is also an ideal villain, since he is both menacing enough to be an enemy of The Defenders, but also fits as a foil for Luke Cage (both were convicts that received superpowers), or as a villain for Iron Fist (they both have mystical origins and Iron Fist needs more villains). He is also connected to the Kingpin.

  • In the MCU, Marvel has mostly skirted around the idea of how Superheroes affect normal crime. Now that superpowered individuals are also going after "normal" criminals, it'll be fascinating to watch how a powerful crime organization like the Maggia will have to adapt in order to challenge heroes like Luke Cage or Daredevil.

  • (One of the) heads of The Maggia, who has fought Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist before. Is infamous for associating with supervillains and employing mad scientists, which would make him much more interesting compared to other Marvel crime lords. Count Nefaria also has superpowers, meaning that he can also serve physically as a threat.

  • Taskmaster's copying powers would make him a formidable opponent to martial arts-based heroes like Iron Fist and Daredevil.

  • A sadistic, rock-skinned criminal enforcer, Tombstone would be an excellent enemy for Luke Cage.

Cool list.

It would be cool to see these villains appear in the MCU especially Tombstone and The Hood.

@spidey_jackson: According to the CV wiki he already had an MCU counterpart that appeared on Daredevil, so he doesn't qualify for the list.

Excellent list. Tombstone could be a possibility with a daredevil and punisher team up. The hood would probably be reserved for a dr. Strange movie and I think the maggia and count nefaria r going to be introduced in agent carter season 2.

Plus I would save taskmaster for another avengers movie or at the very least a spider-woman movie.

@teerack: constrictor would be awesome as antithesis for spider-woman for her own film. Constrictor was a SHIELD agent that went undercover in HYDRA and felt betrayed when he wasn't extracted. He could express his POV towards Jessica when she decides which side to fight for.

I personally think Taskmaster would be redundant in the Avengers franchise, since they already have Crossbones as the evil enemy mercenary character. Besides, TM's abilities only allow him to copy moves, not powers, so he'd be extremely weak against guys like Thor or Iron Man. He's better suited as a street-level villain, since he can serve as a worthy opponent to ninja guys like Daredevil, or as a challenge to characters like Jessica (who are strong but unskilled, meaning that she'll have a tough time defeating him).

I would add her, but according to Google she's going to be one of the main villains of Agent Carter.

I mean I guess they could add a second legacy-character version of her (like Sharon Carter to Peggy Carter) but it would be weird.
