Villain discussion Poll

I thought this might be fun. Here are 13 possible villains for the movie. It may be interesting to see how right or wrong some of us are.

Instead of having multiple threads we can just have this one be the official villain discussion thread.

My appologies if I missed someone you think should be on there.

Re: Villain discussion Poll

I am going to take a guess and say Charlie X. He may have been abandoned by Kirk when younger then comes back as an adult to seeks his revenge and he does have super powers.

Re: Villain discussion Poll

I went with Garth of Izar. Although I could've gone with Other.

I imagine whoever Benedict Cumberbatch's playing will amount to a new creation. But they can probably use the Garth name for old canon recognition, and almost completely rewrite his past as they did to Kirk. There's probably more potential is improving a villain who wasn't all he could've been before. As apposed to rehashing a Khan or a Gary Mitchell, who are fan favourites and more risky to mess with.

I bet in earlier drafts they wanted Khan though, and couldn't make the villain's motivation work as well, as a bad apple who just came from within Starfleet to begin with.

I think the majority of the evidence points to a reimagined Khan. I also think that it might be a red herring, but until they reveal his name or we see something that makes Khan impossible that's who I'm going with.

Mitchell. If only because his story can be set up as a tragedy.
