Thus far, Disney's Iron Man flicks have had some solid baddies, but Marvel really had to cherry-pick to find them.

Here's a fun exercise -- next time to you go the local brick-and-mortar comics shop, take a poll in the store as to which superhero has the most notoriously bad rogues gallery of villains. You can bet that Iron Man will come up.

Tony Stark may be great, but there's no shortage of silly supervillains who were either born or brought to his books. Some of them actually work pretty well in comic form, but none of them would fit in a movie.

Here's our list of eight. Take a look and then tell us who else you're glad never made it to the big screen.
