While almost all superheroes are aggressive in some form, some go beyond what is considered acceptable. Sure, there have been heroes who have straddled the divide between hero and villain, bully and sincere, in the past. On the other hand, despite their moral ambiguity, some of the villains are unexpectedly pleasant, despite their brainwashing, deadly assassin training, or general hate for humanity. Here’s a list of 5 superheroes who are actually just maniacs on the lookout for mass murderers:
1. The Funniest Superhero: Deadpool
We find it difficult not to adore this odd and amusing fighter with a big mouth. Deadpool‘s crass and sometimes inappropriate snide comments can have us all so engrossed in his wacky cyclone of obscenities that we forget about the horrific truth of what he’s doing to his foes. Deadpool mutilates and decapitates his enemies with incredible accuracy using his weapons, katanas, and fatal hand-to-hand combat skills, making it look like an artistry.
2. The One Who Enjoys Violence: Midnighter
Midnighter, like other superheroes, strives for truth and justice. What distinguishes him from the majority is that he actually relishes the carnage and consequences that come with battling crime. Many have compared him to Batman, but with superpowers and a strong desire to kill. “The Authority” #16 is the best example of how violent Midnighter can get when he wants to. Midnighter blows someone’s head off during a brawl, and the whole thing concludes with Midnighter standing over The Commander with a jackhammer, threatening to inflict a horrific punishment.
3. The Brutal One: Lobo
It’s something to be a little violent, and a whole other thing to be insanely brutal. Lobo falls in the latter category. In order to renew his life, this superhero has actually slain every god. Lobo landed in hell after he was killed once. After this, he was not only expelled out of hell, but he also killed everyone in it. Lobo killed every single divinity for his reincarnation once he was transferred to Heaven. He was banished from Heaven and forbidden from Hell as a result of his actions. Lobo now roams as an aimless ghost every now and again, causing havoc.
4. The Potential Murder Machine: The Hulk
The Hulk is a short-tempered anger machine designed just for one purpose: destruction. He has the ability to instill fear in anybody he wants, and there is nothing anyone can do about it. The Hulk is among the few who scares almost all the other superheroes as well as supervillains. The Illuminati sent him into space, and he arrived on Sakaar. Instantly, he became the planet’s leader. The Hulk is so vicious that when he returned to Earth later, he unleashed World War Hulk. There’s also the tagline “Hulk Smash,” which says it all.
5. The Justice-provider: The Punisher
Following the horrible death of his family, Frank Castle has vowed to commit every instant of his life to fighting a one-man war against crime. In the comics, The Punisher was initially designed to be known as ‘The Grim Reaper,’ and we think something about that moniker remained with him. Frank Castle has become the walking personification of death, possessed by a vengeance to annihilate everybody who is on the wrong side of things. Those who do harm to others know him all too well.
