After counting down my least favorite villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s now time for my favorite ones. In last week’s rankings there were really only 3 who stood out. With this top 5 however, the MCU has been fortunate enough to have more good villains than bad ones, so it was a lot tougher to choose. Without further of due, here are my top 5 favorite villains in the MCU.
5. Winter Soldier (Captain America: The Winter Soldier)
One of my favorite MCU films, if not my favorite, is Captain America: Winter Soldier. The story and action blew away the first Captain America film by far. My favorite character in the movie was the Winter Soldier (AKA Bucky Barnes), who was played by actor Sebastian Stan.
The brainwashed Barnes was not a guy you would want to mess with. With enhanced abilities and equipped with a metal arm, he can go toe to toe with Captain America. One of my favorite action scenes in all of the MCU is him having a brutal and fast pace street fight with Cap. After the film, Barnes breaks out of being brainwashed, and later fights along with the Avengers.
