Top 10 Supervillain Redemptions



Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Top 10 Supervillain Redemptions. We all hope that we can learn from our past mistakes and be better people tomorrow. Most of us fail. Today, we're counting down the top 10 superheroes that started out as villains. Now let's get started!

10. Venom.

Eddie Brock is mostly a villain. But as his popularity waxes and wanes, Marvel continually tries to make this psychopath, that doggedly haunts Peter Parker, into a hero, a lethal protector if you will. 

Also, he inexplicably got a solo movie. So, you know, there's another reason why he ends up as a hero seemingly for a prolonged period of time in the comics. 

9. Emma Frost.

She is the white queen of the Hellfire Club. She's a psychic debutante with a heart as cold as ice, unless your name is Scott Summers. And then, he wants to be the Bonnie to your Clyde. 

In short, Emma switched sides and became an X-Man because Marvel was looking for someone to pair Cyclops up with after Jean Grey died the second time. And she's just never quite gone back. 

8. Scarlet Witch.

Scarlet Witch is, regardless of what the MCU or the retcons tell you, the daughter of Magneto. She was a part of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. And then, due to the compassion of the other characters in the Marvel Universe, ended up joining The Avengers and being a hero with her brother Quicksilver. 

Today she's one of the most powerful characters in the whole Marvel Universe, even going so far as to rewrite the entire timeline during the House of M. Will she have another heel turn eventually? Who's to say? Yes. Yes, she definitely will. 

7. Plastic Man.

Plastic Man began as a low-level crook. He was an orphan who fell into the life of crime. He even used his powers to enrich himself initially, after he was first gifted with the ability to, well, be plastic. 

However, he quickly learned that life's more fun when you're a hero. He's been standing up for the little guy ever since. 

6. Vision.

Vision, the Android Super Soldier, was created by Ultron, the Robot Super Soldier who was made by Hank Pym, the notorious wife beater. So, you know, he had a whole, pretty bad family legacy to work against. 

But after being a villain for a hot minute, he fell in love with Scarlet Witch. Good for you, Vision. Rebel against those toxic father figures. Good for you. 

5. Deadpool.

Wade Wilson may be the Merc with a Mouth, but most people probably don't realize that he started as a full-on villain. That's right. In his first appearance in New Mutants #97, he's an assassin sent to kill the titular youngsters. 

Obviously, he's evolved quite a bit in the ensuing 30 years to become something of a soft and gooey, chaotic, neutral nougat at the center of the Marvel Universe's PayDay bar. 

4. Gambit.

Remy LeBeau might be a part of the Thieves' Guild, but he'll always be an X-Man to us, even though his villainous inclinations have, at one point or another, made him a member of the Marauders or the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. 

Gambit is a hero through and through, unless you look at the X-Traitor storyline where Gambit was heavily implied to be the character that would betray everyone and cause a Days of Future Past storyline. But, you know, they ended up rewriting that and made it Professor X. So, you know, that was a mess. 

3. Hawkeye.

Yeah, that's right. The Avengers own mauve archer started as a villain. This half-deaf, would-be thief eventually saw the error of his ways and joined Cap, Thor, and Iron Man on The Avengers. 

But despite turning over a new leaf and taking up the hero's life, old Clint Barton never quite got over his attraction to costumes that have loincloths. 

2. Rogue.

Rogue is one of the heavies of the X-Men Universe. She also got most of her non-skin, touchy powers from tackling this Marvel and not letting go until Carol Danvers was in a coma. Why did she do this? 

Because she was a member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and her adopted brother, Mystique, manipulated her. Yeah, Comic's Rogue is pretty far from the black leather, child soldier thing that's in the movies. 

1. Falcon.

Sam Wilson has been the Falcon and Captain America. But the real surprise, to those out there who've only been acquainted with the MCU version of Mr. Wilson, is that he got his powers by working with the Red Skull. 

He even worked as a goose-stepping henchman for a hot second, before realizing the error of his ways and switching sides, opting to help Steve Rogers fight for the good ol' red, white, and blue.
