Ever since Baron Zemo debuted as the antagonist of Captain America: Civil War, he’s been a fan favorite villain in the MCU. His character was not only smart and interesting, but he also had one of the coolest storylines and payoffs in the entire franchise.
Thanks to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, though, this sociopath has somehow become even more awesome. Below we’ve made a list of three reasons that Baron Zemo is still the coolest villain in the MCU.
Spoiler Warning: The following goes into heavy detail about the plot of Captain America: Civil War and up to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier Episode 3. If you want to avoid these spoilers, we recommend you don’t read any further.

Baron Zemo as the Coolest MCU Villain
While Baron Zemo may have looked rather reserved when he debuted in Captain America: Civil War, he has proven that he is no slouch when it comes to style so far in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
In the short time that he’s has been on screen, we’ve already seen that Zemo knows how to dress, has a lot of classic cars, and even owns his own private jet. Considering he is a Baron, this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, as he has plenty of money to spend on all of that luxurious stuff.
There isn’t any amount of money in the world that can buy the charm and dancing skills that we briefly see Baron Zemo displaying in Madripoor, though. It is honestly a wonder that Selby, The Power Broker, and all of Madriopoor didn’t just swoon at his feet during this scene.
