* ComicBook/{{Apocalypse}}: An ancient Egyptian who gained his [[VoluntaryShapeshifting powers]] from [[TouchedByVorlons Celestial technology]], En Sabah Nur, better known as Apocalypse, is one of the oldest--and evilest--mutants in existence. Believing that [[SocialDarwinist the strong must dominate the weak]], Apocalypse aims to test humanity. Those who survive the process will be allowed to live as his servants, those who fail, die. Apocalypse has a history of granting powers to other unscrupulous individuals, transforming Nathaniel Essex into the mad geneticist Mister Sinister in exchange for Sinister agreeing to unleash a plague that would exterminate most of humanity, and empowering terrorist leader Moses Magnum, in exchange for the latter winnowing out the strong from the weak. His other crimes include infecting the infant ComicBook/{{Cable}} with Techno-Organic Virus, as well as turning Cable's clone, [[EvilTwin Stryfe]], into the monster he is today; trying to force humanity to reduce its own population by ninety percent or face the wrath of another meta-plague; and effectively killing Stryfe by [[GrandTheftMe bodyjacking]] him. He later [[PlayingWithSyringes conducts experiments on test subjects]] to find a new body, and, seeing himself [[AGodAmI as a god]], eventually destroys a civilization. In ''ComicBook/AgeOfApocalypse'', he has devastated North America with nuclear weapons, reduced the human population by purges, and gave free reign to like-minded psychopaths Sinister, Holocaust, and Mikhail Rasputin, effectively destroying civilization. Believing wholeheartedly that those he considers weak must be slain, Apocalypse is well deserving of his name.

* ''ComicBook/OldManLogan'':
** Even in this [[CrapsackWorld dark setting]], the [[GeniusBruiser Maestro]], a corrupt version of the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk from an alternate future, stands out as a particularly vile villain. Maestro arrives on Earth and takes over Hulk's brood of inbred children after Logan killed this world's version of Hulk. Maestro has the Hulk Gang take over a military base in the Yukon territories, killing all the guards there. Maestro also has one of the Hulk Gang, Billy Bob, [[YouHaveFailedMe killed for his incompetence]]. Maestro uses the base's resources to create several nuclear bombs. Maestro plans to use the Hulk Gang as [[SuicideAttack suicide bombers]] and [[NukeEm have them blow up several major cities]], destroying most of humanity. Maestro promises the Hulk Gang they will survive the blasts, but that is a lie, they will die along with most of humanity so that Maestro can rule over a [[AfterTheEnd post-nuclear-holocaust]] world. After Maestro's genocidal scheme is foiled and he is confronted by Logan and Hawkeye, Maestro attempts to set off a nuke, to take out everyone in the area, out of spite. After that defeat, the Maestro reappears later, having conquered a small Northern Canadian town, where Maestro kills anyone who opposes him and turns the women of the town into his [[SexSlave sex slaves]].
** ''Old Man ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}'' miniseries: [[ComicBook/BaronZemo Baron Helmut Zemo]] is [[AdaptationalVillainy presented as a far crueler villain]] than his 616 counterpart. Zemo was enraged that Hawkeye took away the ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} from him, so in the lead up to the supervillain take over, Zemo strong-arms the Thunderbolts into betraying the Avengers. When the Avengers are ambushed by supervillains, the Thunderbolts turn against the Avengers and help the villains kill them. Zemo personally kills Black Widow in front of Hawkeye and only spares him because he thinks Hawkeye is worthless. In the future, Zemo is running a SuperSoldier program at the Weapon X facility for Red Skull, [[PlayingWithSyringes experimenting on people]]. His test subjects often become deformed and beg for death after Zemo is done with them. Eventually, Zemo succeeds and creates a new Captain Hydra, Zemo has him test out his abilities by having him kill several of Zemo's guards. Zemo also plans to kill all the scientists at the Weapon X facility, so no one can recreate his research.
** [[GreaterScopeVillain Sinister]] is revealed to be [[TheChessmaster the mastermind]] behind the plan that created the [[BadFuture dark future]] of the timeline, in which civil society was destroyed and replaced with supervillain-controlled fiefdoms, killing millions in the process. Sinister came up with the plan to unite the supervillains, kill all the superheroes and take over the world, and presented this plan to ComicBook/RedSkull. When Old Man Logan traveled to the past, trying to stop this dark future from taking place, Sinister, in the form of Miss Sinister, learns of the future. Wanting to ensure the Old Man Logan future comes to pass, Miss Sinister recruits ComicBook/{{Mysterio}}, hoping to use him to trick the superhero community into killing each other and takes her plans to Red Skull's daughter Sin, working with her to ensure this plan succeeds and helps Sin kill everyone who could stand in their way. After Logan defeats Miss Sinister in the past, Logan goes back to the future, where Sinister has once again taken the form of Mr. Sinister. Mr. Sinister has created a hit squad of ComicBook/{{Sabretooth}} clones to do his bidding. Mr. Sinister sends these clones to kill anyone who prevents him from capturing Logan and Bruce Banner Jr.--Hulk's preteen son--massacring a gang of cannibals and Forge's encampment of refugees. Mr. Sinister wants to experiment on Logan and [[WouldHurtAChild Bruce]], so he can create an army of SuperSoldiers to conquer the world.

He became a [[PsychoForHire mercenary]], while also committing multiple murders for fun. Sabretooth is known for making a game of hunting down women and children before killing and [[ImAHumanitarian eating them]], including [[EatsBabies live babies]]. One issue of ''ComicBook/{{Deadpool}}'' revealed that, after slaughtering a large group of people, he had a little girl locked in his closet as a snack for later. Sabretooth once joined ComicBook/XFactor, though he was revealed to be faking a HeelFaceTurn in order to ensure that a psychic dependence on an addiction was removed. He promptly attempted to murder those he could. At one point, Sabretooth found himself as an unlikely father figure to Wolverine's amoral son Daken. This wasn't out of altruism however. Sabretooth played off Daken's desire for fatherly affection and drove him towards a confrontation with his father solely to hurt Wolverine more after he was forced to kill Daken. Every affection he ever had for Daken was a lie: Sabretooth would have killed Daken himself, but wanted the death to be at Wolverine's hands for maximum agony. For decades, Sabretooth has reveled in his monstrosity. He mixes his sadism with a [[GeniusBruiser brutal cunning and intellect]], and is revealed to remember every life he's ever ended because he savors every death he deals.
