As he reverts back to his real identity, Joey Cusack and begins to dispatch his former colleagues in various nasty ways, Mortensen's typically excellent performance really sucks you in. But he does it with such serial killer like enjoyment, that I had to put him in the list. He nails the viciousness and the joy he takes in the slaughter. But tell me you would want to run in too him in a dark alley? Its disturbing enough watching Rorschach repeatedly hack a dude in the head with a meat cleaver.its when the mask comes off and we see Haley's brilliant and chilling turn in the prison that we realize that the cheese has slid off Walter Kovak's cracker a long time ago. I was going to just focus on the leader(Danny Huston) but these guys need a team recognition. Blood dripping from fangs, cold, black eyes, horrible snarling language. That Yellow Bastard(Nick Stahl) from Probably more revolting than scary, but who wouldn't be at least disturbed by a psychotic pedophile with a big knife, a whip and that looked..well, like that Yellow bastard!
That scene when Creed comes knocking on poor old Bradley's door is the stuff of nightmares. He's not too handy when it comes to anyone but 19 year old strippers, and Hartigan(Bruce Willis) dispatches the sicko by tearing off his scrotum and punching his head into yellow mush. And last, but not least, probably the most terrifying of all.. Yes, quiver with fear as the human Muppet is once again cast as "comic relief".
"Your creepy black coat don't scare me" says John Wraith right before Creed tears his spine out. Quake in your boots as he delivers one liners that would have Arnie face palming.
I don't know about you, but my blood ran cold whenever this idiot was on screen. DISCLAIMER: Comic Book is protected from liability under the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act) and "Safe Harbor" provisions.

He laughed as he died like the true creepy bastard he was! An amazing performance from Ledger brings life to one of the most complexly psychotic characters in comic history. He only appears at the end of the movie but from those first words.."Hello John.. Stormare goes very close to over the top but just manages to keep things the right side of camp.
Next up is Tom Stall (Viggo Mortensen) from Stall's transformation from average Joe family man, to cold blooded killer is truly an unsettling experience. Ledger's Joker toned down the camp and pushed the terrifyingly chaotic side of the clown prince of crime to the foreground. After seeing him you see why Constantine reeeeeally does not want to go to Hell! Ok, so he's technically a good guy, since all the scumbags he dispatches more than have it coming. Yeah yeah, the movie was shit and everyone involved should burn in hell right? The film may have been disappointing, but there is no denying the brilliance of Schreiber's Sabertooth. Not sitting around in meadows glistening in the sun and looking constipated.
Ah yes, magical:) So in honor of this spooktacular holiday, I have compiled a list of the scariest CBM characters we have seen on screen thus far.... Is there anything scarier than an unkillable Nazi??
