You either die a villain, or you live long enough to see yourself become a hero! These villains either switched sides pretty quickly or made the switch from villain to hero after years of antagonistic, supervillain-like behavior. Either way, when they switched over, they made an impact.

  1. What about Vegeta?

    It doesn’t matter if it’s anime or not, he was a villain turned hero

  2. Turning good hasn’t stopped Venom from being horrifying. He’s even eaten human brains!!

  3. Deadpool is here but no Harley Quinn? Come on! Harley became a hero specially on her DC rebirth comic book series.

    On the other side, people should learn the difference between Heroes and Anti-heroes. I would consider Deadpool and Venom as Anti-hero because…..they are!
