Marvel's Top 10 Bad Parents: The List No One Wants To Be On

Marvel has released a new video pointing out the top 10 bad parents in Marvel Comics. It's pretty obvious why they chose to do this: to tie into the upcoming release of Marvel's Runaways on Hulu on November 21st. And sure enough, The Pride is the #1 on the list. A group of parents who get together and let their kids play while they carry out rituals and plan world domination. Kind of like when you play little league an the parents get together for a "team party" and the parents get sloshed.

And there are some very familiar names on the list that absolutely count as bad parents, like Magneto, Apocalypse, Thanos, Norman Osborn, and the Red Skull. Did anyone think Red Skull could've been a good parent?

Bad Parents

The problem is, there are also heroes on this list. Scott Summers and Madelyne Pryor, Scarlet Witch and the Vision, Wolverine, and of course Hank Pym. But the Vision didn't actually sire any kids — Wanda made them from magic and they disappeared eventually. And Hank Pym is a parent in the same way that Petco calls their customers Puppy Parents. He built an AI that went insane… Hank's got a lot of issues, but not playing catch enough with Ultron isn't one of them.

Here is there full list.
