Marvel SAGA: Villain Chart

So a LONG time ago, I began work on some charts for Marvel SAGA.  These charts were to be designed for the express purpose of with but a card draw or two, selecting a villain, a plot and a location for your Marvel SAGA adventures.  Alternately, you can label these entries 1-100 and roll dice.  The Villain Chart is finally complete.  Some of these entries are generic.  Some are specific.  All are meant with the Marvel Universe in mind.  With a quick card draw and a little thought, you have an instant antagonist for your adventures.  Without further ado...let there be Villains!  (and the occasionally misunderstood hero).
