Avenge This! Five Dastardly Supervillain Plots to Wreak Havoc on the Environment
The Avengers is now playing at a theater ... well ... everywhere, featuring the most impressive array of superheroes on one screen that anyone's ever seen (sorry X-Men). And it got us thinking: superheroes seem to spend a lot of time fighting off environmental catastrophe brought on by the schemes of their archnemeses. We thought the bad guys wanted to rule the world, not just pollute it. (Anyone know if the Heartland Insitute is funded by Doctor Doom? Because it might explain this.) We looked back at some of the biggest comic book movies of recent years to find out which super villains have been plotting environmental disaster. And we probably don't need to say this, but... SPOILER ALERT.
