WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE VILLAIN AND DO THEY CARE?

Villain GangOver the years, a swarm of bad boys, gregarious girls, and vile villains have received an alarming amount of exposure in the media due to an uptick in public demand. But have you ever wondered why? I mean, seriously? Why would we want to see more and more criminals and thieves polluting the populace? Could it be because they sometimes possess a tragic backstory that we can either relate to or partly understand? Or could it be because they wear cool-looking costumes or wield a vast array of powers? Well, whatever the case may be, the one thing we can say for certain is that villains (super, or otherwise) are very, very popular. In fact, they've become so popular, that my mates over at toppcasinobonus.com have attempted to find out which villains we love the most.





You see, not so long ago, they sat down and came up with a solution for this very, villainous quandary. A solution, I hasten to add, that involved them ranking each villain based on the amount of exposure they've received on the following three online platforms: 

  • Google: Namely, the number of average monthly Google searches for each character’s name (according to Ahrefs’ Keyword Explorer).
  • Rotten Tomatoes: Or to be more specific about it, the highest critic score for the biggest box office success they've starred in (but only if the villain in question has appeared in more than one film).
  • Wikipedia: Particularly, the number of page views for the past 30 days (as of 03/04/2020).

Eventually, this three-step method resulted in a total score for each villain which then had to be calculated, normalized, and averaged out of 100.  So, to see what they came up with, here, check out the following list focused on...
