Over the course of the last several decades, James Bond has come across his fair share of villains. They’re some of the most colorful class of egomaniacs, sociopaths, thugs, dental problems, hat throwers, and femme fatales. This veritable cast of sometimes classy, sometimes crass criminals all present a unique challenge to Mr. Bond. Whether he’s tied to a chair, strapped a table, or hanging precariously over another death trap, Bond will often inevitably fall into his enemy’s clutches. Lucky for him they also tend to monologue for a while and then leave him alone with more than enough time to figure out how not to die in their precarious traps.
Dr. No came out in 1962. It starred Sean Connery along with Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder and Joseph Wiseman as the nefarious Dr. No. More than fifty years later, Connery and several more 007s have worked their way through a cavalcade of bad boys and girls who just want to own the world, destroy the world, or do any other number of things that catch the iconic M16’s attention. Being around for so long, there’s no lack of infatuation with creating art based around this colorful cast. We scoured for some of the best the rabid fan base had to offer to the iconic spy universe. We hope you’ll enjoy this extensive gallery of Bond baddies.
While promoting Spectre, Daniel Craig has been asked so much about whether or not he will play James Bond again that he rather slit his wrists than think of the possibility. In a recent interview with Time Out London, Craig was asked yet again if he’ll return to 007.
