For a team specifically created to be Marvel's flagship super-group, it's always seemed to me the Avengers have generated surprisingly few great villains in their time.
Mostly, in the 1960s and '70s period in which I read the strip, they seemed to find themselves up against villains who were rarely - or even never seen again - or bad guys imported from other titles, often after failing to set the world alight there.
Still, amongst all these not-quite-greats, there was the odd classic bad guy created for the strip.
And, anyway, all because a villain's not an all-time great doesn't mean he can't be appreciated.
In a couple of days from now I'll create a poll to find out just who is the Internet's favourite Avengers foe. And that means I need your nominations.
Remember, if he/she/it isn't in it, he/she/it can't win it.
