While the MCU has brought many of our favorite comic book villains to life, there are still some characters that have yet to be introduced. Galactus, for example, is a cosmic entity that could pose a threat to the entire universe. The villainous Kang the Conqueror is another character that makes for an interesting villain, and we can’t wait to see his future in the MCU.

One of our favorite MCU villains is Loki. Tom Hiddleston’s portrayal of the God of Mischief has been a fan favorite since his debut in Thor. His wit, charm, and cunning make him a compelling character, and his redemption arc in Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War has endeared him to audiences even more.

The Winter Soldier

Another one of our favorites is the Winter Soldier, played by Sebastian Stan. His brainwashing and subsequent redemption arc in Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War made him a complex and fascinating character.
