5 Villain’s Origin Stories From the Marvel Cinematic Universe

The audience watching a Marvel film is never unaware of what made the villain so evil – because MCU villain origins simultaneously play out right on the screen. Marvel, DC, and any other such comic books seem to feel the requirement of making sure that audiences are engaged for every significant moment of the lives of their heroes and villains.

To give some dramatic touch to its films, the MCU is mostly in favor of having its heroes give rise to their own villains. Like Tony Stark firing his employee, or Tony Stark’s developed weapons forming enemies for him in other countries – some heroes prove to cause as much evil as they do good.

1. Ultron’s Decision

Ultron is a technologically advanced AI program that Tony Stark and Bruce Banner develop to save humanity. This particular MCU version of Ultron isn’t the first AI program in the film to be created by men only to terminate them in return, however, he may taste the fruits for the quickest heel turn.

As the Avengers are celebrating, Ultron surprisingly becomes active. Ultron is naive and is scared by his surroundings, and although J.A.R.V.I.S. tries his level best to tame him, it’s useless. Ultron almost suddenly decides, after going through his databases and the internet for information about them, that the Avengers are required to be put down for humanity to flourish.

2. The Wrath of Hella

Throughout the Thor Saga, it becomes more and more clearer that Odin isn’t nearly as perfect as a ruler or a parent. Then, Thor: Ragnarok unveils enough about Odin’s past, all together to pretty much imply that Odin is a failed parent and king.

Thor: Ragnarok introduces the fans to another sibling of Thor and Loki. This sibling is Hela, the goddess of death, who is obsessed with acquiring the throne of Asgard. As Hela tells her executioner, she’s doing all this because she was backstabbed by Odin. Odin managed to use Hela’s strength to conquer the Nine Realms but then locked her away when the battle was over.

3. Sylvie’s Revenge

Sylvie doesn’t cause a linking event, she is born as one. Sylvie is another form of Loki that was born a female, and thus, the TVA had to fit her in service of the sacred plot.

Sylvie is seen playing with toys as the TVA appears and kidnaps her like a local goon. However, while in confinement, Sylvie somehow manages to get out. The TVA poked a lot more than they could tolerate by captivating Sylvie because after that she plans her mission to bring down the whole organization.

4. Darren’s Detestation

Darren Cross once used to be Hank Pym’s disciple. But, even though Pym trusted him enough to keep him under his wings, he denied access of the secrets of his Pym Particles to Cross. Thus, Darren grew to hate Pym, until the very day he removed Pym from his own company.

5. Taserface’s Rebellion

Yondu isn’t exactly much of a nice guy. As the head of space pirates, he’s gotta be tough, considering the fact that he also works as a child trafficker, reuniting Ego’s children with him from across the galaxy. However, when it comes to Peter Quill and the Guardians of the Galaxy, Yondu’s got a soft spot.

In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Yondu gives Peter the chance to escape as he’s in favor of catching a lesser bounty. This causes Taserface to realize that Yondu has become too soft, and thus, he leads a revolt against his former captain.
