Hank Pym

That’s right. One of the founding members of the Avengers made it to this list. Hank Pym is arguably the greatest mind in the Marvel Comic Book Universe. Many would say even the great Reed Richards and Tony Stark do not have the level of intelligence Hank Pym boasts of. But the man who discovered the Pym Particles also suffers from a serious case of Bipolar Disorder. He is extremely volatile at times. He once hit his wife Janet once because of his mental disorder. That is an act that has plagued Hank Pym ever since. The man needs to be psychoanalyzed and diagnosed.

Sabretooth

Sabretooth and Wolverine share a lot in common. But the former ranks higher in many aspects like wild behavior, aggression and ferocity. Sabretooth kills without hesitation. He is cold-hearted and actually takes pleasure in inflicting pain on others. His wild nature led him to sexually assault and kill Silver Fox, Wolverine’s lover. He has been an assassin for hire since forever. And that is because this is the only profession violent enough to give him peace of mind.

Green Goblin

The Green Goblin was born out of Norman Osborn taking the Goblin Formula. It gave him heightened physical attributes but also left him with a severe case of dementia and Bipolar Disorder. Norman had a hard time remembering what he did when he came out of a blackout. the blackouts kept happening because the Green goblin persona used to take over. In time, Osborn developed an unhealthy obsession for Spider-Man. He had no regard for life, not even his own son mattered to him. The Green Goblin is also a megalomaniac and thrives in other people’s sufferings.

Legion

Legion is the son of Professor X. He is an Omega Level Mutant with near limitless abilities. His psyche has been fractured to multiple smaller ones. Legion has access to a range of abilities like time travel, pyrokinesis, telepathy, telekinesis, flight, super strength and superhuman speed. But he can only use one ability at a time based on which psyche has taken over his body at that point in time. To hold Legion in, Arkham Asylum would require an infinite amount of sedatives to keep him unconscious forever.

Deadpool

When you realize you are just a character created by an artist in another dimension for a comic book, you would definitely go crazy. Life would no longer hold any meaning. The moment you start breaking the fourth wall, there is no going back. Deadpool is a psychotic SOB. But he was a man of ambiguous mental stature even before he realized the truth behind his world. Deadpool is most definitely a prime candidate to become an inmate of Arkham Asylum.

Sentry

He is the most powerful superhero the Marvel Comic Book Universe has ever seen. Robert Reynolds has the power of a million exploding suns running through his veins. He has survived an incredible amount of punishment without even getting a scratch. He has ripped literal Gods in half. He is powerful enough to tear through the fabric of reality.
