Which super villains do you think are broken and how would you fix them? Which super villains do think are in rut, story wise and how would you get them out of it?

Personally I think the Wizard's in a real rut, forming Frightful Four to defeat the Ff for the past 40 years, he should set his sights a little lower, he would be a dangerous street level villain, but the FF seem out of his league. He should at least get a clue and try to form an Evil Eight next time.

To tell the truth, there are just too many. I think that some of the problem is that the villains have become too static...fighting the exact same heroes for forty (and nearly fifty) years at this point. I think that they need to branch out a little, like they were doing in the late 80s and early 90s. Just because Hobgoblin and Green Goblin are in Spidey's rogues gallery does not mean that they should not be in someone else's rogue's gallery as well. Don't even get me started on the X-villains, who (outside of Magneto) only seem to encounter X-characters.

With all of the solid characters struggling to get/keep their own titles, I really believe that there should be some branching out of the villains, so I'm going to focus on the second- and third-tier heroes and incorporating established villains into their rogues galleries.

Dr. Strange--Whatever happened to characters like Diablo (FF villain)and Darkoth the Death Demon (FF villain)? They would make interesting characters to battle Strange, especially Diablo, an alchemist from the 1500s. Maybe bring in a backstory with an encounter between Diablo & the Ancient One that involves some mystical object. Demogoblin should be another Strange addition, with Demo taking out his crusade on mystical characters.

Hawkeye/Mockingbird/Black Widow--First off, they should be in a 60s/70s style split book. It would work...end of story. As for the villains, I know that the Iron Man villain Ghost has been reworked, but he would have made a perfect villain for these three. Baron Strucker would be an interesting addition, especially because of the spy angle of two out of the three characters. Bringing in a resurrected Nathan Garrett Black Knight would be cool. Ditto for a new Night Shift.

Man-Thing--There was an old character from Marvel Two-In-One named Bragadoom, a mutated vegetation. I remember the old Man-Thing/Glob battles that were excellent. Another villain that would be good for Manny would be a Spidey villain/misunderstood character from the late 1990s named D.K., whose power focused on decaying beings. Would be interesting with Manny's regenerative powers.
