I've always looked at Karzoug The Claimer as THE iconic villain. The man who crawled his way through the ranks and played his cards right to seize the day and win it all.
If he weren't the BBEG, his achievements would sound almost heroic.
To me, moreso than all the villains who have come afterwards, ol' ioun-head was a twisted reflection of the traditional hero/ine and his/her rise to greatness.

Of course I need an illustration somewhere first. Geez, my minions get illustrated twice and nothing for me. But regardless, when you think Iconic Villain, you should think Horseman of Famine.
Oh hush, Mr jackal-headed jello fiend with an appetite for souls. You don't qualify unless I do. And besides, I'm older than you.
Perhaps the real question how many of the iconics aren't Anti-Heroes more than Heroes? Valeros and miss "Dagger in the Ribs" come to mind.
The good iconics, definitely, and some of the neutrals (Sajan stands out).

It's possible to be a good Anti-Hero, the attitude is the major difference.
