What’s the best TV villain in the past 15 years?

My husband and I were watching Primeval last night and admiring their villain — Helen Cutter. And we started talking about the dearth of awesome villains on TV.

So we want to know, what’s your choice. It has to be a recurring or regular character, not a one- or two-shot. And villains who are eventually turned into heroes — a la Spike, from Buffy — don’t count.

We’re debating whether or not whole races count — The Borg, for instance, or Daleks.

These are the things tired parents ponder on Sunday nights.

    Cancer Man! He was just so wonderfully creepy on The X-Files.

    No votes for the Mayor from Buffy Season 3? What about Bester from Babylon 5?

    I few people I talked to suggested Batman or Superman villans (Lex Luthor (Smallville), Joker (Batman Animated Series) but I’m not sure they count since they are riding the caot-tails of much more interesting comic-book versions of themselves.

    I’ve got a vote in for Baal from Stargate SG1.

    Joker form Batman.
    I mean, he was the first of his kind, a sarcastic, ‘happy’ and yet cynical villain that, compared to Batman was way more social, a real role reversal, and a extremely risky step.
