While everyone knows a good villain should strike fear into the heart of our hero and be super scary, some of them are just plain subgrade no matter what they do. Really, some baddies are so lame, we feel we could easily go up against them … even if it's only in our dreams.
SYFY WIRE's Jackie Jennings is on hand for our compiled list of such five bad guys we think we could totally (okay, maybe) take on despite our lack of superheroing skills (or even basic martial arts). Those range from comic book villains to one of the most hated Game of Thrones characters ever.
The first on our list is the truly wacky Batman villain the Condiment King. The character created for Batman: The Animated Series by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini uses various condiments as his weapons (we kid you not). While some of his, uh, weapons can cause anaphylactic shock, the Condiment King has often been used as comic relief in the series. You could say the saying "a hero is only as good as his villain" certainly doesn't apply in the case of the Condiment King.
Other potential opponents include that little s*** (sorry not sorry; it had to be said) Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson) from Game of Thrones; 1998 Nintendo game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time's final dungeon boss Ganondorf; Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice; and ... well, you'll just have to watch the video above to find out.
Let us know if there are other villains you would add to the list!
