Arrow: Merlyn, Deathstroke, Ra’s Al Ghul, Damien Darhk, Prometheus, who was the best villain?
While Arrow Season 6 will not come back until October on the CW, who was the show’s best villain?
Back to the past! Yes, the meltynauts, while our impatience eats us from the inside until the release of the sixth part of Arrow, it is time to take stock of the most emblematic villains of the show . While Melty’s editor suggested you discover our top 3 episodes of Arrow’s 5 season , what villain has been most successful throughout the episodes? Between Malcolm Merlyn, Deathstroke, Ra’s Al Ghul, Damien Darhk and Prometheus, we are clearly spoiled for choice!
We tend to forget it but it was indeed the first Big Bad of the series. Determined to put the city back in order according to its own rules, he had killed Tommy unintentionally and caused an incredible number of casualties in Star City. But as time went by, he had managed to win a strange place in Team Arrow still landing at the right time to save the stake to Oliver . He ended up finding his redemption at the end of last season by sacrificing himself to save Thea. Iconic yes but maybe not the best villain!
Slade Wilson aka Deathstroke
It’s hard to compare to the giant Slade Wilson was in season 2. As ruthless as he was for revenge, he still killed Moira in front of Thea and Oliver. He is also behind some of the best episodes of the show. Especially since we must not forget that Slade was at first a friend of our hero and his betrayal was therefore only more painful . But the Season Finale allowed him to redeem himself. The opportunity to make us forget his mistakes?
Ra’s Al Ghul
Ra’s A Ghul showed his face only very late in the series but was determined to make Oliver his successor. A leader of the League of Assassins, he almost killed our hero in the middle of season 3 in a scene that is still particularly cult. Thanks to him, it is a whole other universe that we have learned to discover. But is he the best of the bad guys in our eyes? A little less frightening than expected, it could well have been surpassed by the others.
Brilliantly played by Neal McDonough, Damien Darhk was formidable in the fourth season of Arrow. Ready to do everything to rebuild the city in his image, he has met many times with the Team until Oliver discovers his greatest weakness: his family. From then on, things took a new turn and our hero managed to regain the advantage . After a whole season of difficulty, was it not too easy a conclusion?
Adrian Chase aka Prometheus
The last Big Bad of the show gave Oliver a hard time. Trying to destroy him from the inside by all possible means, he did not hesitate to kidnap and torture him. A villain without any weakness who has not had the least scruple to kill his own wife to get vengeance! This makes him one of the best villains of the CW’s flagship show . One thing is certain, we are looking forward to knowing who will be the next Big Bad of the series.
