Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most profitable modern movie franchise. The studio has given the superhero team movies and joint universes a mainstream position and has popularized the superhero genre in a never before manner. Although the heroes are MCU’s face, there is much more to it. Marvel also has a fantastic diversity of villains. Some of them have been in the movies. However, there are some of them as listed below who are too nasty ever to be a part of the movie universe.
Mephisto is the ultimate master of lies when it comes to Marvel Comics supervillains. He is a fraudster and the most evil influence. It won’t be wrong to say that Mephisto is a mixture of all bad things in the world of comic books. Whenever he is not manipulating people to follow his orders, he prefers relaxing in his personal hell which he calls home. He was instrumental in Johny Blaze becoming bonded with Zarathos and becoming Ghost Rider. With such a blood red skin, horn and a forked tail, it won’t be wrong to say that if Mephisto ever appeared in Marvel Cinematic Universe, it would lead to great uproar from conservatives.
No, not the one that Ben Kingsley portrayed in Iron-Man 3. Mandarin is among the most renowned villains from Tony Stark’s series. He is a master of martial arts and wields ten alien power rings, one on each finger. Mandarin is a villain who is feared even by the Iron-Man. His unsuitability is linked to his origin. Mandarin is a racist outcome of the Yellow Peril period where Chinese were considered to be nothing more than slit-eyed people with long fingernails and Fu Manchu mustaches. You can’t show that kind of caricature in today’s world.
A name like this implies a lot. Hatemonger belongs to the maligned Ku Klux Klan. However, he wears a purple robe instead of the typical white. He unleashes a Hate-Ray which turns its targets into racist humans (Trump for example). Hatemonger is another version of Hitler in reality. After the World War 2 ended, Hitler kept transferring his consciousness to new hots to continue with his sinister agenda. Now in the form of this Fantastic Four villain, he orchestrates Hate Riots in New York. Looking at the society today, we don’t even need a Hatemonger as people are themselves full of hatred these days.
7. Warrior Woman
You can think of her as the Marvel version of Wonder Woman. If Wonder Woman had been a Nazi, loved leather instead of men and harboured crazy fetishes, then this is what she would be. Warrior Woman was a Hitler accomplice during the World War 2. She impressed him so much that he tried marrying her to Master Man, another of the Nazi villains and wanted the couple to start producing Aryan babies. A character with such absurdity is unlikely to be a part of Hollywood.
6. The Jackal
Miles Warren used to teach Spider-Man before he found out Peter’s dual persona and planned to create clones from his DNA. He is the reason behind the existence of Ben Reilly and Kaine. However, he didn’t limit himself to only Peter. He cloned Gwen Stacy too and he got really obsessed with her clone. The comics didn’t reveal the extent of his adventures, but, it can be said that they never did anything holy together. Being fascinated by cloning is entirely different from a mad professor sleeping with his own student.
5. Black Talon
Imagine something like an African American who wore a Chicken suit and performed voodoo in battle. There is nothing racist about it, right? If you pay attention to this character, it looks even worse. Black Talon was an effort to create a variety of characters and superhero list to feature members from other ethnicities. As is evident, they failed badly with Black Talon. You already see Necromancy in Hela’s character (Thor: Ragnarok), and if Black Talon entered MCU then he would need a major revamp first.
4. Gwen Stacy’s Children
Gwen Stacy and the way she died was crucial in shaping Peter Parker’s life as Spiderman. In a fantastic storyline, iconic Spiderman villain Green Goblin abducted Gwen and killed her. Her death shattered Peter and it took him a while to get going again. However, it is later revealed as to why Goblin killed her. Gwen had an affair with Norman and when the pregnant Gwen Stacy threatened by cutting the Goblin off, he handled the matter in the Goblin style. Gabriel and Sarah Stacy are the kids of Goblin and Gwen and they grew up to become supervillains. However, it is next to impossible for them to be a part of the UA style MCU from Disney.
3. Master Man
A scrawny guy who desired to fight for his country in the WWII is prevented from doing that because of his frail physique. He then joined an undercover government mission to become a supersoldier. Heard that before? That’s not just what happened to Captain, but, also to Master Man. He is a Nazi supporter, and he also has a different kind of super soldier serum running in his veins. Although Master Man can prove to be a superb villain, he needs to get rid of his Nazi origins to get going in MCU by joining something more normal like, let’s say HYDRA.
Holocaust is the offspring of Apocalypse and the Horseman Famine. He is totally loyal to his father and battled X-Men and the Avengers. He slaughtered thousands on behalf of Apocalypse. In fact, he even had a brief run as a superhero in the Time traveling weirdos called The Exiles. However, when ToyBiz tried making a Holocaust action figure in 1987, they had to rename it as Dark Nemesis, due to the reason that nobody would have bought a toy called Holocaust. A similar thing is bound to happen to him in the MCU, and if he ever plans to enter the shared universe, he first needs to get a new name.
1. Adolf Hitler
The all-time greatest villain in the world who wiped out more lives than anyone else ever, without personally ever firing a shot. The racist, hateful maniac was the cause of the second world war. Therefore, when the Jewish writers created Steve Rogers aka Captain America, they made him humiliate Adolf as much as possible. The Third Reich leader has been hazily featured in Captain America: The First Avenger, as a part of a play. The movie’s real bad guy was Red Skull. Marvel Cinematic Universe would be taking an unprecedented risk if they ever portrayed a controversial and globally hated name like Adolf Hitler in a film. We can only hope that they never try that ever.
