What comic book villain overstayed their welcome for you personally?

What comic book villain overstayed their welcome for you personally, Cinemaphile? For me it's Carnage / Cletus Kasady, he's been around for a long time, and it's gotten stale and boring how he keeps getting killed and gets brought back over and over and over, there's nothing new about him, nothing enjoyable to read, it's just the same old "Waaaah, I'm so edgy, look at me, I kill people indiscriminately!"

      Cletus is meant to be a Spider-Man and Venom team up character but he kinda just became everyone's problem instead forcing two very opposing characters to work together.

      Harley becoming mainstream popular with Suicide Squad spelled her end especially when she stopped wearing the jester outfit and speaking like a New York israelite.

        My issue with Cletus is he keeps getting killed and keeps being brought back.

          That's my point, Cletus becoming a like wider Marvel character means his body count keeps climbing and more people wanting to off him rather than two characters two struggle to hold their own against him.

            Now that you mention it, he is one of the most successful villains in-universe. Dude does everything he wants to achieve.

    Darkseid is overused as the final boss of every justice league thing

      He's supposed to be Orion's final boss but everyone seems to prefer him as a superman villain. I do kinda like the idea of Superman finding kinship in the people of New Genesis as a sort of surrogate Krypton from the original Kirby stuff.

        That's also why's he boring. These days. He's just a mook for Superman to fight.

          You shouldn't really like punch him around, he's meant to be a sad and pathetic despot of a worthless world.

      For me overuse is when a character very demonstrably has nothing left of value to give despite being spammed
      For example Darkseid still has a lot of ways he could be cool because the omega effect and the anti-life equation are rich concepts so I would disagree with Darkseid as an answer
      On the other hand Harley Quinn

      Harley Fricking Quinn

      is correct to the point where writers have literally stopped treating her like a villain. Amazing side character material, pure shit main character material

    Why doesn't Spider-man just kill him?

      He's tried a few times before stopping himself or being flat out unable to. Symbiotes are absolutely bastards to kill
      >highly durable
      >high regen
      Even without their shape-shifting make them bastards to fight.

      Why doesn’t the Sentry just fly him into orbit and tear him in two? Oh wait.

      Maximum Carnage is Bad, Cultist of Knull is bad, End of Venomverse is bad

      Now that you mention it, he is one of the most successful villains in-universe. Dude does everything he wants to achieve.

      When you just wanna kill people, it's pretty easy to do your goals.

        Indeed, and he is successful. I mean, look at Frank Castle: he is bad at everything he is supposed to do. He simply doesn't kill terrorists and only shoots chicken thieves.
        Carnage is a mass murderer and once took a town for himself. Honestly, only Green Goblin tops him in achievements. I can't get enough of Carnage when he is well / fun written.

      He's becoming Marvel's equivalent to The Joker. Yes, even including how he's begun cloning and retroactively entwining himself so hard into the fabric of reality that saying "why doesn't Spider-Man just kill him" is a pointless statement.

    I thought the Insomniac version was a fresh take

      I hate insomniac Spider-Man after the second game, but Cletus being a cult leader is a good take on the character that was done first in the comics.
