Thanos is intriguing. Who else?

In your opinion, who are the best alien
super-villains? Difficulty: I'm only interested in those that originated from comic books.

I'm not interested in the bad guy from a sci fi movie which was then turned into a comic book. I'm actually not interested in movie alien villains whatsoever, no matter where they came from. Just purely comic book based super-villains, that are alien-born (or alien-created.)
To repeat, they cannot be 100% Human. They can appear human, but not be earth-based or have 2 human parents.
Most importantly, they have to be really awesome bad guys with interesting personalities. I'm looking for actual individuals, not just a swarm of evil-intentioned creatures working under a hive mind.
This is for the basis of comparison on a project I'm working on, so if you can include your reasoning for WHY you think they made such awesome villains, I'd be very interested to know. (For example, I've always liked Thanos as a supervillain because he was genuinely in love with Death incarnate, thus killing thousands of people to prove his devotion to her.)
Thanks for indulging my geekdom, those of you who are not currently at Comic Con as we speak.
