Comic Books: Marvel announces it’s top Villains for 2010! From Ben Morse, “We may have entered the Heroic Age in the Marvel Universe, but that doesn’t mean villainy has ground to a halt. Indeed, Marvel’s greatest champions from Spider-Man to Thor, the Avengers to the X-Men, will always be defined by the caliber of evil they face and overcome. 2010 saw the final acts of a Dark Reign, but even when Earth’s Mightiest Heroes reasserted themselves, the bad guys simply assumed a lower profile and went right back to work.
After all, they’ve been up to no good since long before one of their own called the shots and they’re not afraid to get down and dirty all over again.Marvel.com received the following list from our own Secret Cabal acknowledging the most wicked and ruthless rulebreakers of 2010.” Starting with #10

That being the case, I asked Wood if he’d entertained the notion through the years that he might ever get the chance to reprise his role someday.
Replied Wood, “No, we thought we were finished and the character doesn’t even exist in [the book of] The Hobbit, so it was not even a pipe dream to imagine the possibility would be there for me to reprise the role of Frodo.
