Scariest Comic Characters

Since it's Halloween today, I decided to do something fitting. This is simply a list of characters who I find to be the scariest in comics. This is mainly an opinion list, but feel free to list your thoughts in the comments.

List items

  • This guy just terrifies me. I have nothing to say beyond that, otherwise I'll just freak myself out. He's just a serial killer, but one I could believe exists in real life.

  • The guy just makes my skin crawl.

  • Just think about it. They can change their appearance to impersonate anyone, and they can just infiltrate anywhere without someone knowing. Just a scary thought to me.

  • Parallax basically is fear, so...

  • Do I need to explain?

  • He's a genius, manipulative, and has the extra strength and stuff. He's insane enough to do some gruesome evil stuff, but sane enough to convince the world he's just a businessman. He's basically broken his son beyond repair, plus everything he's done to Peter in attempts to break him. I just find all this terrifying.

  • The character himself isn't very scary (to me at least), it's just what he can do.

  • Really depends on the writer. Sometimes I read a book with Joker and am just scared thinking about him, sometimes I read him and just don't think anything, and sometimes I read him and just sigh at how pathetic he is (like during Death of the Family. They were just trying way too hard to make Joker scary, when all they needed was a writer who knew what he/she was doing).

  • There's just something about that face.

  • I've heard a lot of people say he's the scariest character in comics. I actually haven't read anything with him, so I couldn't say. I simply mentioned him here so that way no one in the comments would ask where he is.

For me it would probably be the Silence from Doctor Who.

Creepy bastards! Weeping Angels scare me too but I think I'm getting of topic.

From comics there was this woman on the Sinestro Corps that was super scary.

Kryb was her name and she was obsessed with stealing children from gl's.

In the first issue of Arkham War {professor Pyg is performing unnecessary surgeries on his prisoners....one guy looks down after waking up and instead of his arm below his elbow he has a shin, ankle, and foot for a hand...Pretty scary.

I've never heard of Professor Pyg, but just in that picture, he doesn't look scary.

I agree with you, but I've simply heard from various people how scary he is.

Hes a psycho who will kidnap and perform unnecessary surgeries on people while they are asleep or paralyze them but keep them awake while he does horrible things. His mask may not be that great but something about having forced surgery and being mutilated, like replacing your eyes with ping pong balls or your hands with feet freaks me out, I remember getting a procedure once and as they put me under and said cant back from 10 for half a second I thought of Pyg, LOL needless to say nothing bad happened to me, lol.

Professor Pyg is terrifying! Read Morrison's Batman & Robin series with Dick Grayson as Batman

I always define scary as how they look. What they do is a whole different subject, the way I see things.

That guy does seem pretty jacked up in the mind though.
