Okay. You're incorrect.
Let's just use the most obvious example. Batman.
The most notable Batman villains:
Bane, Catwoman, Clayface, Harley Quinn, Joker, Killer Croc, Mad Hatter, Man-Bat, Mr. Freeze, Penguin, Poison Ivy, Ra's al Ghul, Riddler, Scarecrow, Talia al Ghul, Two-Face
Which ones went through an extended period of being on the side of good (or at least anti-bad)?
Bane, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Man-Bat, Poison Ivy, Riddler, Talia al Ghul, Two-Face.
A decent chunk of the men.
100% of the women.
