Which plot by a marvel villain do you think was the "best"? im not sure how to define "best" in this instance. i guess it could be the cleverest or most original. or the one that made you say "thats a good idea, it could work" and maybe even should have.

to throw in my idea, i think helmut zemos master of evil seige on avengers mansion was pretty brilliant (in an evil way of course).

any other plots (big or small) that made you go "wow, thats good (in an evil way)"?

Ok this plot sort of set the stage for the clone saga but I thought it was a deliciously evil plot.

Peter discovers his best friend, a man he loves like a brother hurts him in a way that none of his other enemies ever could or ever have (including Norman). He gives Peter; the sad little orphan who never knew his parents; the illusion that he has his parents back and it takes months for Peter to find out the which time Harry has already died. Harry did in death what no one including his father or any of Peter's foes has ever done...he broke Spider-Man. He drove Peter insane.

No other villain ever played the parent card. Peter's best friend knew what button to press.

To me this and this alone is why Harry is infinitely more interesting (and horrifying) than Norman ever will be. Norman betrays everyone but he really doesn't betray anyone....betrayal requires trust and no one trusts Norman. Harry didn't decide to kill Peter's loved ones or show him his worst nightmare. He gave Peter the thing he secretly wished for since he was a child and made a mockery out of it. The trust Harry abused with faking Peter's parents is IMO far more heinous than any act of evil his father ever committed.
