5 Times When Villains Became The Good Guys

Villains and Superheroes have been fighting for ages with each other. Each and every time when villains try to execute their vicious plans, the heroes come to save the day. This has been a common trend, but this typical orthodox was broken by some villains. Here is a list of villains who turned into good guys:

Doctor Octopus

Doctor Octopus while ill and dying transferred his mind into the body of a healthy Peter Parker and his mind into his own body. While doing so, not only did he inherit all the spider powers inside Peter’s body but also all his memories and his pain & suffering. because of this not only did he become the Spider-Man but the Superior Spider-Man. He went on to do even better than Spidey as he was ruthless and greatly tech. advanced.

Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom became the Infamous Iron Man, in the series of the same name. This is when Tony isn’t there, not fully at least and there is a need for a new superhero. He takes the mantle on himself and this change of heart of him is not just limited to this. He even became way more humble.

Emma Frost

She is first seen as the White Queen of the Hellfire Club in the X-Men series ‘The Dark Phoenix’ where they try to take control of Jean, the plan backfires greatly though. Later she is rescued by the X-Men and eventually joins. She probably has a longer romantic relationship with Cyclops than even Jean Grey.


Venom sure is the arch nemesis of Spider-man for some time. But nope, he’s not a villain anymore. Eddie Brock has had his share of redemption, not only does he have his own miniseries playing the good guy catching thieves and all, but also does he help defeat the evil Carnage. That’s a mouthful, guys!!



Gambit’s change from a villain to a hero was slow. Adopted by the Le Beau clan, he is into wrongdoings since childhood. Mr. Sinister increases his abilities and he works for him, but later there is a change of conscience and he becomes a thief. Wow! What an improvement, he does a lot of good deeds though, saves Storm when she’s a teen too. But eventually, joins the X-Men and becomes an integral part of it.
