#ComicBytes: Five most humiliating defeats of Marvel villains
Written byShuvrajit Das Biswas
Marvel Universe has one of the largest rosters of heroes and villains.
Writers have smartly matched the two evenly, giving us thrilling fights where both sides are evenly matched and you never know if the bad guy will win. Usually, the hero wins but the fights are tense.
At times, the beatdowns are brutal, and we bring five most humiliating defeats of Marvel villains.
Daredevil vs Bullseye
The man with no fear, and no mercy
Bullseye and Daredevil are usually evenly matched and, sometimes, the Man with no Fear has barely gotten out of these encounters.
However, when Bullseye broke into Daredevil's home and attacked his then-girlfriend, he got a taste of Daredevil's ruthlessness.
Not only was he beaten to an inch of his life, but Daredevil took a broken rock and carved Bullseye's sign on his own forehead.
Luke Cage vs Killgrave
Manipulating the man with unbreakable skin is tough
What could have been a deadly fight for Cage turned out worse for Killgrave.
It turned out his powers were not working and Cage took the opportunity to mercilessly beat him for torturing his wife Jessica Jones.
Magneto Vs Professor X
The X-Men friends turned foes unleash destruction
Charles Xavier and Magneto do not see eye to eye but used to be friends.
However, Magneto wears a helmet preventing Xavier from entering Magneto's head.
One time during Magneto's evil machinations which brought the US President to his knees, his helmet was snatched by Quicksilver.
Xavier entered Magneto's mind and turned him into a chess fan with no memory of villainy or identity.
Loki vs Hulk
What's a God to a non-believer?
Avengers fans must remember the scene in the movie where Hulk beats Loki to a pulp.
The comic, Astonishing X-Men had a moment where Loki confronted the Hulk.
While the God of mischief was busy trying to show off his grandness and importance as a God, Hulk got busy smashing.
Needless to say, Loki was reduced from an Asgardian God to a puny God!
Doctor Doom vs Squirrel Girl
Doom himself, against a pack of rodents
However, Doctor Doom's defeat in her hands remains the most humiliating.
The powerful villain was taken down when Squirrel Girl used her obvious power of communicating with squirrels to unleash an army of furry rodents on the Doctor, who embarrassingly admitted defeat.
