Lex Luthor

When you think about it, even you would agree. Luthor is only being rational about his fear of Superman. This is a guy from a faraway planet in a distant corner of the universe. He can move mountains and blow away houses with a single breath. He is immune to the greatest weapons ever made by humanity. If he wanted to, Superman could easily destroy the world and there’s nothing we could do about it.

All Luthor wants is for his planet and his people to be ready for a threat only he sees coming. There’s no shame in being prepared for the inevitable.

Magneto

His methods may look hyper militaristic and borderline megalomaniacal at times. Magneto has done far too many war crimes to escape the long arm of justice. But there’s a reason he still has scores of readers that support him.

Magneto saw firsthand what discrimination looks like. He was a POW in a Nazi concentration camp where he saw his loved ones being mercilessly killed. All he wants is none of his other mutant brothers and sisters to go through the same level of brutality.

Doctor Doom Is Merely Trying To Save The World From Itself

Doctor Doom

Victor Von Doom knows what every villain before him has known. The world cannot be left to its own devices. It needs a steady guiding hand otherwise it will implode. He’s not wrong. Global warming, so many political crises, wars, and the rampart destruction and exploitation of life and property proves Doom’s theory right-humanity will doom itself if not controlled.

There is indeed an issue in Marvel Comics where doom won and conquered the world. It was a total utopia where crime didn’t exist and peace and harmony were the only religion you needed. Had Doom had his way, the world would’ve been a better place to live in.
