A hero is defined by their villains, and the world of superhero comic books is filled with some of the scariest and silliest bad guys around. Rogues’ Gallery aims to settle the score and determine who is the true arch-nemesis for some of favorite superheroes, and we need your help to do it!

The Avengers have a storied history and has picked up many fierce enemies over the years -- and even absorbed more than a few from other heroes and teams. The team are famous for facing the foes no single superhero can withstand, but which Avengers enemy is the greatest of them all? We need your vote to find out!

There are several contenders for the top spot this week, with Kang, Ultron and Thanos all vying to be the best. Don't count out Loki, however, as it was his machinations that inadvertently brought the team together, and other classic villains such as The Masters of Evil may very well have a chance at the number one position.

There are also newer threats to the team such as The Hood and Norman Osborn, who have been consistent menaces over the past decade. Doctor Doom is someone more closely associated with the Fantastic Four, but in many ways he's grown beyond that role to be a threat for the entire Marvel Universe, as have the likes of Magneto and The Red Skull. But remember; we're asking you to vote for these villains as they relate to the Avengers, and not the Marvel Universe as a whole!

Let us know who you think gets the top spot for The Avengers’ number one nemesis below, and we’ll be back in a few weeks with a countdown of his top ten best and baddest villains. You can vote for up to three selections in the poll!
