Are Superheroes Still Superheroes Without Villains?


no.. for everything It's often said that a hero is only as strong as his villains. What's the point of a superhero who doesn't have evil to battle against, after all? Would Batman be as memorable if it weren't for villains like Joker, Two-Face, and Catwoman? Would Wolverine still be the best there is without Sabretooth or Mystique or Lady Deathstrike pushing him to persevere?

Comic fans will agree that supervillains are integral to the success of any good superhero comic. But strangely enough, that isn't always the case with superhero movies. Hollywood hasn't shown a great deal of interest in the villains of the Marvel and DC Universes so far. It's heroes like Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man and Hugh Jackman's Wolverine that draw in the big bucks. I don't know about anyone else, but my enjoyment of these films is beginning to seriously suffer because of the lack of attention paid to fleshing out and developing the villain characters.

even if you don't have a villain you can still be saved and be considered a hero.

And for the debate ( cat woman is not a villain she is an anti hero)

You don't need a rival to be a hero. You can still save people. It just might not be as fun. Might be why Batman keeps Joker around.
