In the Marvel universe, there are a lot of heroes who kill their opponents quite regularly. We occasionally see questions about this aspect of the universe - such as "How many people has Daredevil killed?", "How many people has Wolverine killed?", etc. In addition, I found an old question that was closed because it was entirely too broad (link at bottom). So all of this inspired me to ask a more specific question:
Which Earth-based character in Marvel's Earth-616 universe has the highest kill count?
Please keep the following requirements in mind for any answer:
- The character must reside primarily on Earth (No Galactus, Thanos, or Silver Surfer)
- The character must reside in the Earth-616 universe
- The character can be either a hero OR a villain
- The kills must have occurred due to a direct act or plan by the character
