5. Lady Tremaine

"“Of course. I said, ‘If’.” -Lady Tremaine"

When people think of wicked stepmothers, Lady Tremaine is the greatest of all time. She was evil in a way that set the bar for future antagonists. She treated Cinderella worse than garbage because she gave her hope then she’d snatch it away. For example, she let her daughters destroy Cinderella’s dress while Cinderella was wearing it. All Cinderella could do was sit and cry as her family went to the event of a lifetime. That was an appalling scene. Nevertheless, Lady Tremaine was created to be awful.

To take it a step further, Lady Tremaine from the 1950s Cinderella has one of the most evil looks in history. She was designed to look villainous, and it worked. Everything about her screamed deplorable and she personified it. It was a logical choice to have the great Cate Blanchett play her in a live-action version. She’s one of the few people who could pull this off.

4. Mickey Mouse

"“All you need is a little bit of magic.” -Mickey Mouse"

When people think about Disney, they don’t just think of the logo. The first thing that comes to mind is the mouse ears of Mickey. Some people don’t call it Disney. A lot of time, people refer to the company “The Mouse” because of Mickey.

If there’s a complaint to be made about Mickey, it’s that he hasn’t changed much over the years. The problem with that statement is he hasn’t needed to. He’s the icon of the company. There could never be another Mickey Mouse project again and he’d still be shown everywhere Disney is. Look at him like a villain from Loki. Mickey will be around forever.
