8. Madame Macabre
Created by Stan Lee and Bob Powell
First appearance: "Tales to Astonish" #66 (1965)
Real Name: Unknown
She might be a bit esoteric, but Madame Macabre's origin could make her a perfect addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Ant-Man's first foe. As a little girl, the good Madame was saved from being run over by a rickshaw by a mysterious stranger. The stranger saw that the girl was extremely intelligent for her age and supported her education, making her a loyal follower. That stranger was none other than the Mandarin -- a name readers and filmgoers alike will recognize thanks to his appearance in "Iron Man 3." By connecting her to another established villain, Madame Macabre could instantly resonate with fans dying to see the next chapter in the Mandarin saga. Macabre also has the ability to shrink inanimate objects which would be a nice counterpoint to Scott Lang's abilities. Possessing beauty, brains and a comics-based connection to a great villain, Madame Macabre would instantly shift from from unfamiliar to compelling.
