The best way to lighten up the day is to sit back and enjoy a fun sitcom with your favorite people at the end of a long, tiring day. Of course, these shows have their fair share of villains, which are also key to adding spice to the plot. But some of them are so ridiculed and dangerous that, in our opinion, they’re best suited to be supervillains in a DC or Marvel Universe. Because what is a supervillain after all? Yes, we know there is a lot more, but hear us out. Here is a list of 10 sitcom characters who would make amazing supervillains:
1. Wil Wheaton in Big Bang Theory could be one of the geekiest supervillains if he ever was. Yes, he later befriended Sheldon, but before that he was badass and a traitor.
2. Jeremy Jamm in Parks And Recreation is one of the most formidable enemies Leslie Knope has to face. Unlike the rest of the Pawnee City Council, he has no intention of working with the team. Instead, its only intention is to cause harm.
3. Pierce Hawthorne in Community always messes people’s heads up and is an expert at ruining people and making it happen. The guy got to such a point that he made Neil think about suicide when he was just kicked out of a game.
4. The Simpsons’ Mister Burns already owns a nuclear power plant and glows in the dark. It already looks like a supervillain. But, being the richest person in Springfield, he forces everyone who works for him to follow his orders no matter what.
5. Dwight Schrute in The Office is devious and a little devilish too. He constantly feels like something is going on against him. Paranoia also makes him strangely dangerous.
6. The strange robot, Bender, from Futurama, has always had bad intentions. He really liked seeing humans in pain. His strength and no remorse for causing pain and his will to destroy humanity could make him a dangerous supervillain.
7. In Silicon Valley, the Pied Piper team were doing their best to make their plans work. However, there comes a villain, Gavin Belson, with his company, going out of his way to get them in trouble. His greedy nature, money, and will to rule make him akin to Lex Luthor.
8. Rick Sanchez from Rick and Morty is the perfect example of an overambitious scientist. Rick suffers from trauma and pain, and in order to cope he carries out strange experiments and heinous crimes. That certainly puts him on the list of the 10 sitcom characters turned supervillains.
9. Among many other less good characters on Seinfeld, there is certainly no one more mean than Newman. If he had been a supervillain in any of the superhero universes he wouldn’t last, but he would definitely be on the list.
10. Dennis Reynolds of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has all the boxes checked to be one of Batman’s enemies. First, he has torture equipment in his car, and to top it off, he has already explained to his sister that he killed someone. He really does look like a serial killer.
