3. Sylar (Heroes):
The NBC television series Heroes may not have turned out to be the super-powered show that anyone really wanted it to be, but that doesn’t change the fact that it developed one of the greatest, most sadistic villains in recent history: Sylar (played by Star Trek‘s Zachary Quinto). Sylar might not be the most powerful on the list, but I put him at number three because of his villainous and downright frightful behavior. What made Sylar so insanely scary was the fact that he would steal the ability of another superhuman by cutting open his or her head and studying his or her brain. The first power he stole, and the one that he used the most often, was telekinesis. He showcased what he could do with this newfound superpower by launching people across rooms and lifting vehicles off of the ground; but like I said before, the man cut open human heads. Having telekinesis on his side made this job a little easier. “Oh, what do you know? All I have to do is concentrate and my mind will do all the work!” Creepy stuff.
