My Top 5 Favorite MCU Villains

MY TOP 5 Villains

3. Erik “Killmonger” Stevens (Black Panther)

Erik "Killmonger" Stevens

I loved Michael B. Jordan’s portrayal of Erik “Killmonger” Stevens in Black Panther. His character was ruthless, smart, and determined to become the king of Wakanda, which he did. The ritual combat scene where he faces T’Challa is probably the most badass scene a villain has ever had in the MCU.  During it he taunts T’Challa with “is this your king” line and then throws him off the cliff.

I also liked Stevens because while I didn’t agree with the execution of his masterplan, I did agree with what he wanted out of it. Which was for Wakanda to help people around the globe that were less fortunate than them. In the end, T’Challa also agreed with him because he set up outreach center’s throughout the world. This is something Wankanda’s leadership had always been against.
