Who is your favourite villain from the pulps, and why do you think this person is the perfect arch-nemesis for The Shadow?

My favorite villain from the pulps is Shiwan Khan, but having just read
The Death Tower, I think Dr. Palermo
takes the cake. His scheming almost trapped The Shadow completely. I don't
think I have ever seen The Shadow so angry! And the way he used people,
including his girlfriend Thelda, is just vile.
Yes, Doctor Mabuse, that master criminal of Post-WWI German pulp-fiction and films (directed by Fritz Lang) -- the scourge of Europe and an overlord of a criminal empire. Almost as mysterious as the Master of Darkness himself, the evil Mabuse would be a most formidable foe. In fact, as Mabuse had survived every attempt at capture by the forces of Justice, perhaps only a being like The Shadow actually could bring him down.
Webmistress's Note: Though the poll was for The Shadow's villains, I've decided to make an exception after reading more about Dr. Mabuse.
