Quote:I mean Loki's obviously got the top spot, but who is number two?
Quote:In the classic sense it has to be The Destroyer. Most of Thor's rogue's gallery were, after a battle still beatable. Destroyer wasn't. Yet because he was Odin's construct he wasn't a threat to Odin. So unlike Surtur and Mangog who were essentially Odin's villains, Destroyer remains Thor's toughest and regularly most deadly adversary.Vidar
I would almost agree but the thing is that the Destroyer never acts independently because its just a tool. Surprisingly Loki is mostly the one using the armor to cause Thor problems, others have used the armor but its mostly Loki.
As a combatant I’d have to rate Destroyer right up there behind Loki. That’s also why the first Thor film featured them as one and two respectively. But you’re right in that there’s little self determination there, so perhaps adversary is a better word than villain.
