Subj: Companion to Grey Gargoyle's cool thread - Best villain created in the 80s?

Had to do this thread because one of my very favorite villains - Titania - was created in 1984 by Jim Shooter and Mike Zeck during The Secret Wars.
Titania has been on my mind due to the fascinating Black Bolt comic currently on the shelves. She's become an important supporting character for the time being.
She's tough, she seems to have some sort of conscience and some sort of empathy, and she and the Absorbing Man were always portrayed as being genuinely, fiercely, wholeheartedly in love. She's a lower tier villain who apparently doesn't do too well in the money department, which is a quandary to me, as I would think any supervillain would either be (a) in jail or else (b) rich. If you get away with the crime, why wouldn't you be rich? She must get stiffed now and then by the masterminds who employ her. Either that or she has a gambling problem or just a spending problem in general.
Any way, she is easily in my top ten of favorite villains, regardless of tier. I will buy a comic simply because she's in it. She's awesome.
Who are your picks for "best" or "favorite" or "most charismatic" villains created in the 80s?
