21. The Destroyer
FROM Thor (2011)
PROGRAMMING This metal monster, who’s doing little brother Loki’s bidding, has pretty clear parameters: take out Thor.
SPECIAL FEATURES It’s giant, seemingly indestructible, and its face opens up to reveal projectile hellfire.
WHY HE PUSHES OUR BUTTONS This live-action movie version of this comic-book villain lived up to expectations and added to the heat of this summer blockbuster.
