...all that stuff about destroying all of humanity, the complete destruction of Slorenia, etc.

Most sympathetic: most of the time the most sympathetic tend to be second stringers in the villain hierachy. Some of them are even very obscure.
  • Diamondback, I think, is very sympathetic. She even fell in love with Captain America at some point.
  • Shriek, an insane girl who joined Carnage during the "Maximum Carnage" saga, whose only goal was to have a family, was a very tragic character.
  • Titania, She-Hulk's villainess, is sort of humorous and funny at times... her marriage to Absorbing Man is also priceless.
  • Batroc ze leaper, who at some point, when Captain America was dying, promised to reform... a promise he kept, until Cap came back from the dead.
  • I would even say Mystique... we've seen her emotional side many times, we know she really does care for Rogue, and she really loved Destiny. She's not entirely evil. I remember an issue in which the Brotherhood creates a diversion, ambushing Colossus and later fighting the rest of the X-Men at Central Park, to cover for Mystique who infiltrated at the Mansion. After she shots Xavier, Rogue - who had ran from the Brotherhood very recently at the time - arrives at the scene, and has with Mystique one of the most human heart-to-heart I've read in comics.
***Edit*** I found a link in scans daily of what I talking about Mystique. Scans come from issue #177 and #178 ( the issue in question )
. The last five pages are what I was talking about:   http://community.livejournal.com/scans_daily/5951529.html

Strangely, I DO sympathize with Ultron, after the Mark-12 story in WCA. He's a child growing up, but, sadly, far too much power and the best impulse control programmed by a guy that has had almost as many nervous breakdowns as his wife has costumes. \:\) If someone took Ultron under their wing and helped him to develop a real moral center, he could be a valued member of society. As is, it's too late for that, and for that, I pity him.
