* ''ComicBook/{{Fatale}}'': [[HumanoidAbomination The Bishop]], the [[Really700YearsOld ancient]], ageless servant of the [[EldritchAbomination eldritch old gods]], pledges his existence to providing sustenance to his masters by wandering across the Earth in various forms. Engaging in regular [[HumanSacrifice ritual sacrifice]]--some of which involves the lives of [[WouldHurtAChild dozens of infants]] tied to a tree and left to rot--and lording over servants who have cast aside their own humanity to serve him, many of whom [[BadBoss he kills for slights]], Bishop pursues violent delights to enthrall himself in his early years, awakening once after the 1906 earthquake to fatally beat a pleading old man trapped under rubble and soon after engaging in a spree to murder as many people as he could before sunrise. After an attempt to sacrifice the immortal FemmeFatale Josephine, or "Jo", Bishop moves to San Francisco in 1956, [[TraumaticCSection tearing the unborn baby out of a pregnant woman]] and savagely killing a group of mobsters to tempt DirtyCop Walter Booker. Blinded shortly after, Bishop arises in the form of a [[ReligionOfEvil cult leader]] named Hansel in the 1970s, where he leads more cult violence, regularly sells a woman named Suzy to be raped, and leads an attack on Jo's home which ends with her caretaker and current lover dead and the house burned down. Finally arising in the 1990s to 2014 as an executive named Mr. Sommerset, Bishop continues his attempt to sacrifice Jo--murdering scores of people and lounging in their corpses or bathing in their blood in his off-time--and finally resorts to torturing and killing Walt's nephew Nicolas in front of her. With no low he will not stoop to, either to provide for his gods or simply ForTheEvulz, Bishop is as big a monster on the inside as he is [[{{Cthulhumanoid}} on the outside]].
* ''ComicBook/{{Ferals}}'': [[SavageWolves Rikkard]] serves as the most prominent villain in this comic, and stands out as the most wicked by far. Though [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Ferals]] have a habit of killing innocents in rage or lust-filled insanity, Rikkard is one of the few who has near complete control of his impulses, yet still fully indulges in evil and cruelty unseen by any other Ferals. Along with being a SerialKiller with a knack for [[OffWithHisHead ripping off dozens of victims' heads]], Rikkard kidnaps dozens of male humans, including a school bus of teens, then forcibly infects them with the Feral disease, turning them into savage werewolves under his thrall. Rikkard then blackmails his fellow societal Ferals, all disgusted by his depravity, into regularly supplying him with innocents for him and his pack to murder, and later leads the wholesale slaughter of an entire town, [[RapePillageAndBurn raping, butchering, and eating]] every man, woman, and [[WouldHurtAChild child]] there, amounting to over 3,500 victims. In the end, after his personal harem, whom he views as property to use and abuse as he likes, is wiped out by [[TheHero Dale Chestnutt]], Rikkard massacres an entire squadron of army soldiers, guts Dale's girlfriend Pia, then tries to restart his Feral harem and army before being driven off by other Ferals for his crimes. Standing out even among the numerous other vicious Ferals for his wanton {{sadis|t}}m and heinousness, Rikkard cared for no man, or Feral, [[ItsAllAboutMe but himself]], valuing his image of power and control above all else.

* ''Random Acts of Violence'', by Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, & Giancarlo Caracuzzo: The [[NoNameGiven unnamed]] SerialKiller is a deranged fan of the ''Slasherman'' comic book who decides to take the eponymous character's preaching to heart and engage in a killing spree of his own. Initially started by mutilating and dismembering eight woman around the country side while the comic's creators, Todd and Ezra, go on a nationwide tour, the killer then goes off to brutally murder several more people--[[WouldHurtAChild including children]]--leaving their body parts and smoking cars behind him, as well as three more people he deposits in a comic book shop. The killer eventually decides to hurt the artists themselves by attacking and brutally killing Todd's girlfriend, then kidnapping Todd himself and forcing him to witness footage of the killer dismembering the girlfriend. The killer then instructs Todd to illustrate what he's seen and publish it, with the threat of [[FlayingAlive skinning him alive]] and chopping him into pieces. A [[AxCrazy psychotic madman]] who [[MadArtist considers death and violence to be unironic forms of art]], the killer manages to stand out as truly depraved despite the lack of information about him.

* ''ComicBook/{{Absolution}}: Rubicon'': [[TheSociopath The Polymath]], real name Arthur Blankenship, is a creatively psychopathic supervillain with a love for mass slaughter. After being locked up for going on a rampage through a city, the Polymath is given a deal to kill [[AntiHero John Dusk]] in exchange for his freedom, but immediately breaks the deal after being released, proceeding instead to go on another killing spree. During this spree, the Polymath [[HalfTheManHeUsedToBe rips people in half]], strings them up by their insides, uses buses and cars as swinging or throwing objects, and brutalizes before attempting to rape a heroine who shows up to stop him. Claiming well above 800 lives in this massacre, the Polymath later brutally murders a small family, before viciously butchering an entire apartment building, with decapitations, bisections, and [[FlayingAlive live skinnings]] being just some of the kills he gets up to. When confronted by Dusk, the Polymath boasts about all the men, women, [[WouldHurtAChild children]], and [[CruellaToAnimals pets]] he's killed, and, even when seemingly beaten, the Polymath decides to [[TakingYouWithMe take the entire city of millions down with him]]. Serving as the prime example of villainy that Dusk has decided to show no mercy to any longer, the Polymath made his mark as the most depraved murderer in the comic.

* ''Bedlam'', by Nick Spencer et al.: Before being brutally tortured, lobotomized, and reconstituted into becoming the pacifistic hero "Fillmore Press", Madder Red was a sickeningly {{sadist}}ic psychopath with nothing driving him beyond his base lust for chaos and evil, and a desire to prove that, deep down, all of humanity could be just as wicked as himself. As the worst terror the city of Bedlam ever faced, Madder Red spent the better part of three years torturing, maiming, and killing his way to a status of legendary infamy, claiming over two thousand victims throughout his career. Notable instances of his random cruelty include gunning down numerous innocents at a religious gathering after decapitating two of the church leaders, massacring an entire restaurant filled with dozens of people to make sure he gets "good service", and brutalizing his ArchEnemy, the First, with a [[BatterUp baseball bat]]. In his so-called greatest achievement, Madder Red slaughtered an entire opera house of defenseless civilians, including a class of [[WouldHurtAChild elementary school children]] whose blood he proceeded to play in; disemboweled, posed, and [[ILoveTheDead violated the corpses]], then [[SlashedThroat slit the the throat]] of the only surviving little girl in front of the First just to anger him. Madder Red then reveals, after being caught, that if he's not dead within one hour, his associates will detonate bombs located in six schools across the city and kill hundreds of children and adults alike. Combining a [[LaughablyEvil darkly hilarious humor]] with a sadistic love of depravity, Madder Red was an unrepentant fiend who many tried to discount as a simple thug or terrorist solely to keep the public from seeing him as what he truly was: A devil-like monster with nary an excuse or reason for his crimes beyond a lust for degeneracy across the world.



* ''ComicBook/DeathSentence'': David "[[BigBad Monty]]" Montgomery is a depraved, [[TheHedonist hedonistic]] comedian who ends up infected by the incurable G+ virus. Now with the powers of [[CompellingVoice hypnosis]] and telekinesis, Monty [[ForTheEvulz decides to make the most]] of his last months on Earth. Initially [[PowerPerversionPotential using his powers]] to force a nun into sleeping with him--[[SerialRapist not an isolated incident]]--Monty quickly thereafter rapes and murders the Queen of England before telekinetically [[YourHeadAsplode blowing up the skulls]] of the Royal Family and proclaiming himself King of England. After [[PsychicAssistedSuicide hypnotizing an entire battalion of soldiers numbering in the hundreds to kill themselves]]--and forcing seventy of the survivors to shoot themselves--Monty [[OffWithHisHead decapitates the Prime Minister]] to secure total reign over England. Monty quickly lavishes in his new position and turns London into his own private hellhole, influencing millions through public broadcast to engage in whatever depraved pursuits they want out in the streets while using his powers to pursue further sexual fantasies. Monty further engrosses himself by blowing up the heads of an entire crowd of people simply for annoying him, and once he learns a naval fleet has been sent out to stop him, Monty murders over a million people--[[WouldHurtAChild children not spared]]--in one fell swoop, using his telekinetic abilities to extend his range. Monty hypnotizes the captain to rape one of his own men before making the entire armada kill itself, finally necessitating a nuke dropped on central London purely for the purpose of wiping him out. Even after all the carnage and millions adoring him under his influence—and millions more dead—Monty admits he still isn't satisfied in the end. A degenerate narcissist who thoroughly undermines anything that could be considered a humane quality within him, Monty [[TheUnfettered represents a picture of what a psychopath with no other resources might become with the powers to exercise whatever they might have wanted]].

* ''ComicBook/TheMiceTemplar'': Even for a series that thrives off GreyAndGrayMorality, there are still a few villains who stand out for being incredibly vicious.
** [[YouDirtyRat Captain Tosk]] is the leader of [[BigBad King Icarus]]'s Rat Guard army. With thousands of rats at his disposal, Tosk leads his army from village to village, where he and his rats slaughter anyone in sight and round up all the survivors so they can be used for slaves in Icarus's palace. During Tosk's raid at Cricket's Glen, he fights and kills exiled [[spoiler:Templar Master Deishun]] and personally [[AnArmAndALeg cuts off Leito's arm]] before transporting the survivors to Icarus's palace. After the slaves are freed by Karic and Cassius, and Tosk is reassigned to Dealrach Ard-Vale, Tosk goes against his superiors' orders and leaves the city, longing to raze more villages. When he captures another group of slaves, Tosk has some of the mice run through [[SwarmOfRats a nursery of baby rats]], both so he can watch as they're DevouredByTheHorde, and also so he can indoctrinate a new generation of rats into hating mice. Upon discovering that one of his lieutenants betrayed him and tried to free a group of mice, Tosk orders the mice to club the lieutenant to death instead of giving the lieutenant a merciful execution. Even after the mice comply with Tosk's demands, he forces the mice to run through the nursery, [[ExactWords telling them that they can now "run free."]] A vicious BloodKnight who craves violence, Tosk cares about nothing but killing as many mice as possible, even if it means defying orders or murdering his fellow soldiers.
** [[WickedWeasel Boris the Torturer]], the TortureTechnician of King Icarus's empire, thrives off experimenting in his "craft." [[EstablishingCharacterMoment When first introduced]], he's interrogating a prisoner by burning her with heated tongs while he's [[FauxAffablyEvil nonchalantly talking to Captain Tosk]]. When Boris isn't torturing or experimenting on prisoners, he's choosing them to be sacrificed for the Druid priests, where the victims are {{impaled|WithExtremePrejudice}} very slowly with a Templar blade. When Leito and the other mice from Cricket's Glen try to escape their dungeon, Boris orders his guards to recapture them and spare as many as possible so they can be used for future sacrifices or torture. Boris tries to find the ringleader behind their attempted escape so he can punish him accordingly, but ends up choosing Harad instead of Leito; Boris punishes Harad by [[EyeScream gouging out his only eye]]. During the Samhain festival, Boris picks twelve prisoners to be EatenAlive by a Serpent God--including Karic's entire family--but spares Leito [[ForTheEvulz for the sake of his own amusement]].
** [[spoiler:Pilot the Tall is a fallen Templar who betrayed his Templar brethren and pledged allegiance to King Icarus]]. Working under Tosk's command, [[BitchInSheepsClothing he]] spent twelve seasons finding exiled Templars so Tosk and Icarus's army could hunt them down and kill them. He's also responsible for the [[spoiler:destruction of Cricket's Glen and Master Deishun's demise]]. [[spoiler:After being rescued by Karic and learning about his encounter with the Fish Gods]], he agrees to take him to the Great Ash Tree--[[spoiler:not for the sake of helping him fulfill his prophecy, but to use Karic as a trump card to prolong his life]]. When his plans fail, he goes back to King Icarus to try and get back in his inner circle, only to be denied and thrown into his dungeon. He later escapes Icarus's palace with Leito and Harad, where he brainwashes Leito into hating Karic and murders Harad once he grows suspicious of him. At the final battle, he and Leito meet with a small group of mice and sneak back into Icarus's palace through a secret tunnel. When bats storm the tunnel, he convinces Leito to leave the other mice to die, and later orders Leito to attack Karic once they finally confront each other. When Leito discovers that he was deceived, he tries to flee, only to run into Cassius. Even after he is beaten by Cassius and is on the floor pleading for mercy, he waits until Cassius turns his back before he stabs and nearly kills him. [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative]], [[DirtyCoward cowardly]], and only concerned about [[ItsAllAboutMe his own survival]], he stands out as a creature with no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

When Sato returns home with the Elias and Mothra in tow, Takahashi kidnaps the Elias, resulting in not only Mothra, but Godzilla and most of the population of Monster Island rampaging through Tokyo. Killing the priests of Mothra who come to retrieve the Elias, Takahashi demands that the Prime Minister pay him millions of dollars, or Tokyo will continue to burn.

* ''Dead Irons'', by James Kuhoric et al.: In this 2009 comic miniseries, [[BigBad Devin Irons]] is a horrifying SinisterMinister obsessed with {{immortality|Immorality}}. A vicious husband and father who regularly beat [[DomesticAbuse his wife]] and [[AbusiveParents 4 children]] for any form of slight, Irons reached the peak of his abuse when he branded his son Silas with a cross, then tied him to a statue, bloody and bruised, for an undetermined amount of time. When Jonas, the only man in town aware of Irons's cruelty, confronts the man, Irons gleefully stabs him to death, before enacting his plan to gain eternal life: [[DealWithTheDevil Making a pact with Hell]], Irons crucifies his wife and plans to sacrifice her and his children to eternal pain and torment in exchange for immortality, but, when Silas disrupts the ritual, [[ArchnemesisDad Irons]] settles for gutting his wife and leaving his other 3 children to wander the land as monstrous zombies.

Psychopathic, {{hypocrit|e}}ical, and fanatical, Devin Irons was a true beast of a man so convinced of his own righteousness that he condemned dozen of innocents, including his own children, to an eternity of torment and hellfire simply because he considers that to be their only purpose in life.

Having spent centuries walking among mankind among disasters and people he's DrivenToMadness, Nyarlathotep spends hundreds of years arranging for the events of the Godwar between him and Nodens, intending to raise Cthulhu and use the ensuing chaos to draw forth Azathoth. To this end, Nyarlathotep, under the guise of "Mr. Arkham," gradually drives the town of Arkham into increasing insanity, ruining the life of Cy Morgan before having him tortured and leaving his insane form as almost an afterthought. Bringing his followers into the world one-by-one through the deaths of others, Nyarlathotep in particular has a [[WouldHurtAChild seven-year-old child]] driven to homicidal insanity before having his form mutated and infested by one of his followers after having both his parents killed. Among his other cruel actions, Nyarlathotep hypnotizes the residents of a bar to burn themselves alive; hideously [[FacialHorror deforms the face]] of sheriff Raymond Dirk and threatens to torture master thief Lucifer; and has the brain of his human follower Connor painfully extracted and set up to look in a mirror until he's DrivenToMadness, [[AndIMustScream unable to move or die]]. The exemplary point of Nyarlathotep's manipulations is outlined in the prequel comic ''Nemesis'', where, solely to eliminate worship of a rival god, Nyarlathotep drives the population of Atlantis to frenzy through his followers and influence, has their king driven to savagery and eventually publicly executed by his own brother, and then sacrifices the entire city to the Deep Ones on a whim, keeping the sole survivor trapped in the form of a cat he dubs Nemesis to stand by him forever. Nyarlathotep perpetuates torture, suicide, and insanity around him wherever he goes, relishing chaos itself and striving for nothing less than to drive all humanity insane [[ForTheEvulz for kicks]] before [[KillAllHumans eradicating them]].

* ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'': ''ComicBook/GoldDigger'':
** [[BigBad Dreadwing]] was once a lowly iron dragon, who helped raise the young platinum dragon T'mat. When T'mat surpassed him in power, Dreadwing attempted to kill her before being defeated and banished from the dragon race. [[EvilCannotComprehendGood Unable to accept T'mat's love for him]], Dreadwing would discover the device called the Time Raft and used it to return to the other dragons, defeating, mutilating, torturing and raping T'mat to destroy any love she might have for him and force her to suffer whenever she saw their daughter. Massacring many dragons, Dreadwing attempted to recruit his own private force by offering his chosen recruits the option to [[SadisticChoice torture their mates to death or watch as Dreadwing erased infant dragons from existence]]. When they refused, he [[WouldHurtAChild made good on the threat]]. Traversing other worlds, Dreadwing became a violent scourge, destroying as he willed before being defeated by Gina Diggers. Entering into a "cosmic chess game" with her older, alternate timeline self Ancient Gina, Dreadwing still takes the chance to murder those he could before launching an attack on the world of Jade, aiming to subjugate it and even attempting to [[OffingTheOffspring kill his own daughter D'bra]] with no remorse. Egotistical, sadistic and filled with loathing for whatever he cannot control, Dreadwing stands as the comic's most enduring and horrifying monster.

* ''ComicBook/{{Vampirella}}'': [[TheSociopath Von Kreist]] was once a Prussian soldier on the Western Front of UsefulNotes/WorldWarI who was equally fascinated and horrified by the mindless slaughter he witnessed. He later made a DealWithTheDevil for immortality, [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor only to find out]] that [[AgeWithoutYouth his body would continue to decay]] while [[BlessedWithSuck his soul could not pass on]]. He has since made himself a PsychoForHire for whatever vampire clan will provide him a fresh supply of victims while aiding their plans to reduce humanity to cattle, each time killing huge numbers of people in the process. He takes the two teenage daughters of a disobedient mafia boss hostage and [[SadisticChoice forces him to choose which of them will live]], then shoots the daughter the man chose so the surviving one will have to live with the knowledge of her father giving her a death sentence.

Von Kreist is also a prolific SerialKiller and SerialRapist on the side, with one of his victims shown [[AndIMustScream having her eyes, mouth, and limbs stitched together]].
