The MCU’s Phase 4 Villains Ranked

The MCU's Phase 4 Villains Ranked

Here’s the MCU’s Phase 4 villains ranked thus far. With Phase Four of the MCU coming to an end with the next two upcoming properties She-Hulk and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, now is just as good a time as any to go back through and rank the villains thus far. For the sake of clarity, this list won’t include any of the villains of the What If…? show though.

12. The Clandestines

The first entry on the list of the MCU’s Phase 4 villains, the short-lived villains of the Ms. Marvel show, they were introduced in episode three, and dispatched by episode five, without any real threat or worry to the cast of the show.

11. General Dreykov & Taskmaster

The less said about this adaptation of Taskmaster the better.

10. Arishem/Kro

The Eternals wasn’t met with much fanfare, and although it was beautiful to look at, the story, the characters, and certainly the villains were found lacking. Many of you might even have to Google exactly who Kro is, he’s that forgettable.

9. Karli Morgenthau

The villain with a relatable and understandable viewpoint is becoming somewhat of a staple in the MCU, and whilst many understood Morgenthau’s motivations, her lack of character development throughout The Falcon and the Winter Soldier won’t make her one remembered for long.

8. Agatha Harkness

The somewhat villain of the Wandavision show, Agatha was not only a lot of fun but also quite a menacing prospect against the backdrop of a deteriorating Wanda, whom herself was a villain to the people of Westview.

7. Arthur Harrow

MCU's Phase Four villains

The glass-walking, Khonshu-hating character managed to give Marc Spector/Steven Grant a run for their money in Moon Knight, and technically succeeded with his mission, if it weren’t for a timely intervention from Jake Lockley.

6. Kingpin

A short stint in the Hawkeye show had Wilson Fisk finally showing off his power and schemes in the MCU, to much wider effect than originally thought.

5. Wanda Maximoff

Going full Scarlet Witch for a movie in search of reuniting with her lost children from her show, Wanda ends up murdering civilians, heroes, and more in Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness.

4. Green Goblin/Sandman/Electro/Doc Ock/The Lizard

Most of this placement in the list is thanks to the Green Goblin, as in the multiversal hopping Spider-Man: No Way Home, every time the Green Goblin is on the screen, you can’t help but want to see more and more.

3. Gorr the God Butcher

The most recent entry into Phase 4, Gorr spends far too much of Thor: Love and Thunder doing his worst deeds off-screen, but whenever we do get to see him, he’s nothing but terrifying and another villain that technically succeeded, if not for his own change of heart at the end.

2. The Mandarin

MCU's Phase Four Villains

One of the better films in Phase 4, Shang-Chi: Legend of the Ten Rings finally introduced a proper version of The Mandarin, between his sorrow for his lost wife, and his fractured relationship with his children, The Mandarin is one of the most well-rounded and enjoyable villains of the entire MCU, not just Phase 4.

1. Kang/He Who Remains

MCU's Phase Four villains

Number one in the MCU’s Phase 4 villains, appearing in one episode of the Loki show, his mark left on the MCU as a whole cannot be downplayed. Starting off the current predicaments the MCU currently finds itself in, it’s hard to argue against He Who Remains being the best so far.

There you have it, the MCU’s Phase 4 villains ranked, who would have been your number one?
