There aren't many games this week worth picking, because most teams are playing marshmallows so my picks are likely to be short.
5. Dark Phoenix
20. Puppet Master
13. Fin Fang Foom
29. Skrull Queen
5. Dark Phoenix
13. Fin Fang Foom
9. Omega Red
Today we have I think the three lowest ranked villians to make in to round two. The Enforcers, The Fallen One, and Demogoblin were all ranked 38th or below. If you are looking for a Cinderella story, it starts here.
38. The Enforcers
59. The Fallen One
14. Chaos King
There are a couple reasons to hate Neo, however, the largest one is probably just the actor portraying him. Keaneu Reeves mechanically walks through his roles in these films like a zombie in true Reeves fashion. With an expressionless face, a monotone voice, and true d-bag style pair of sunglasses that are worn even in the rain, it easy to cheer for him to just die so that the human race can simply find a better hero to save it.
Hating the Punisher is not a hard thing to do, probably because he is literally the worst hero of all time. Frank Castle regularly goes to war with other heroes, simply because they try to stop him from killing villians on the spot, regardless of their crimes. Daredevil, Spider-Man, and Captain America have been his adverseries just as often as Jigsaw, Barracuda, or the Kingpin. Of course, many hate him simply for his attitude regardless of who he's fighting. Pop a cap now and ask questions never is not a real popular method of fighting crime.
"The audience's sympathy must always remain with the coyote."
Roadrunner is easy to hate, not by his own actions, but by the lovability of his opponent. Wile E. Coyote is just easy to love and almost impossible not to pity.
6. Nick Fury
A super hero who is essentially a politician for justice is not easy to love. That has always been the case of General Nicholas Fury. For every criminal he beatdown and put behind bars, he sat behind his desk and ordered someone else to do his dirty work or to simply back off for diplomatic reasons ten times. He has made some bad decisions in the past, most recently brainwashing several heroes into sneaking into Latveria and assassinating a leader he didn't trust.
5. Derek Jeter
Derek Jeter is a rare phenomenon in the baseball world. A long, successful career with virtually no controversy in it. He has never been accused of steroid use, spent his whole career as a loyal member of one team, and established himself as a long-time respected leader of the greatest franchise in sports. He is easy to hate for the same reason. He is Yankee, there are no athletes in sports easier to hate than a Yankee, a he is as perfect and clean-cut a Yankee as there has ever been. The fact that he is not just another sellout and cheater in pinstripes makes his that much easier to hate because he was born and bred as the perfect Yankee.
4. Severus Snape
When all is said and done in the Harry Potter series, Snape is a hero, perhaps the most heroic figure in the entire series. He is also one of the most tragic characters ever created. All of that is hidden behind the fact that for 6 and 3/4 books he is a total jerk. There has rarely been a character as cold, cruel, and unfair as Snape is throughout the series. There are few villians found in any media as easy to hate as Severus Snape is.
3. Namor: The Sub-Mariner
Namor is everything that Severus Snape, added to a streak of arrogance that makes Terrell Owens seem as if he isn't sure if he is a talented football player or not. Namor rarely speaks a word that is not either praising his actions or telling someone else to mind their tongue when they speak to him. He is royalty and reminds everyone of that in virtually every panel he appears in. He also has a world class temper that has put him in fights against virtually every hero that has ever appeared in the pages of a Marvel Comic.
Cyclops is not as arrogant as Namor, not as cold as Snape, and not as manipulative as Nick Fury. So why is he above all of them on the list? Probably because even though he has been a member of th X-Men for as long as there has been an X-Men, if you ask 100 comic book fans who their favorite X-Man is, you will get 100 answers that aren't Cyclops. He is a decent fighter but not the best, has some powers but is not the most powerful, and is a bit of a jerk but is not even as good at that as needed to reach the upper echilon of Marvel Comics. Quite simply, it's not how much he is easy to hate, it's how hard he is to like.
1. John Cena
For the last seven years, John Cena has been the Superman of the wrestling world. A big, muscular, boy scout who always does the right thing. He is also the absolute bane of existence for most die-hard, old-school wrestling fans. What Stone Cold Steve Austin did before him with middle fingers and beer cans, John Cena does with neon hipster clothing, a wankster personality, and a handful of poop jokes to pander to the children in the audience. John Cena was the hottest thing in wrestling in 2005 and was cheered by fans everywhere. Pretty much every show since then, he has been booed as heavily as he is cheered. This not a hard choice to make because this hero is literally hated by half of the audience he performs for.
