The Villain Pub is a secret establishment run by Emperor Palpatine, where villains hang out and mope about their losses. It first appeared in How Thor the Dark World Should Have Ended. It is a place for villains to relax, drink, and talk with each other. Certain villains serve as staff, while others are common patrons.


The pub was founded by Emperor Palpatine, most likely in 1983 after the release of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The pub quickly expanded to include many villains. Over time and into the 2010s, the Villain Pub became a popular hangout for villains from film, television, comics, books, etc. However, they had strict rules, including "boss battles only" and "real villains only", the latter caused a number of villainous characters that were either lame, redeemed, or anti-heroic to be excluded.

After the events of 2016's Suicide Squad, Batman ended up finding the pub and proceeded to fight all of the villains inside. Though he beat most of them, he let his guard down around the female villains, allowing the villains to overpower him and try to feed him to Jaws, but he was saved by Dr. Strange.

The pub remains in operation, with Batman saying he'll need backup for the "next time"

How Thor The Dark World Should Have Ended

Loki, was at the Villains Pub moping his loss of how his trickery was discovered and he was forced to assist Thor in defeating the Malekith and was forced back to his cell in Asgard which he then escaped using magic. Malekith arrives and complains to Loki that he stole his spotlight to which Loki simply describes Malekith's embarassing defeat at the hands of 'two human scientists and two brainless interns' and calls him an ametuer; Malekith then leaves. Zod jokes to Loki that, if he had been a good child Odin probably would have just handed him the throne since Thor no longer wants it, to which Loki jokingly retorts that if Zod had colonised Mars he could have saved his entire race. Loki then notes that he likes the pub and enquires as to its name. The Villain Pub's name is then revealed for the first time.
