The Many Looks Of The Bond Villain | Colonel Moon / Gustav Graves (Will Yun Lee / Toby Stephens)
Colonel Moon / Gustav Graves (Will Yun Lee / Toby Stephens)

Film: Die Another Day (2002)

Style: Another spoiler: Moon and Graves are the same guy, thanks to a plot involving some rather radical gene therapy. Moon sports North Korean military chic for his scenes, reflecting the fact that he’s in the North Korean military (his name is a reference to Kingsley Amis’ Colonel Sun, by the way: the first Bond novel not written by Ian Fleming). Thereafter, in Graves form, his get-up is explicitly designed to reflect and parody Bond: a sarcastic adoption of an arrogant, public-school British gentleman persona. With ice palaces and invisible cars as a bonus.

Plan: Another diamond-powered laser satellite with Earth-shattering capabilities, this time for the benefit of North Korea.

Best Line: "You see, Mr Bond? You can’t kill my dreams, but my dreams can kill you."

7 Octopussy?
Technically speaking, Octopussy would've been the first female Bond villain. It's really a fine line as she was working with Kamal Khan at the same being an ally/love interest to Bond. Still, Elektra is the first full-on female villain. More

8 Stromberg's webbed!
Not many people know this but Curt Jurgen's Karl Stromberg character has webbed hands! The hands are only really noticeable if you see the movies in theaters or watch it on an HDTV. Otherwise, if you watch it on DVD on a standard TV, you'll have to zoom in or freeze frame to really spot them. They're perhaps most noticeable when they show a closeup of his hands pushing the button that leads to his secretary's death. More
