Great Rogues Galleries Are Not Only For Superheroes

In comic books, the collective name for a group of villains is a rogues gallery. The term dates back 1855 when police would call a collection of criminal photos their rogues’ galleries. But this idea isn’t just for comics or police; so many movies and TVs contain a notable gang of baddies. Behind every great hero is a group of villains trying to kill them!

Below is a collection of the best rogues galleries in pop culture history.

Honorable Mentions:
Scooby Doo (Creeper, Ghost of Redbeard, Witch Doctor, Black Knight)
Darkwing Duck (NegaDuck, Beagle Boys, Fearsome Five, Magica De Spell)
Superman (Lex Luthor, Doomsday, Metallo, Zod, Brainiac)

9Doctor Who

(EXAMPLE: Davros, The Master, Cyberman, Daleks, Weeping Angel, Zygon)

While the Doctor is a great protagonist, they have an infamous bunch of antagonist. Daleks are a staple of the show, and so is their master Davros. Though, nothing has crossover appeal like the terrifying Weeping Angels! Doctor Who understands to have a great hero, you need great villains that will always pose a threat.
