Best DC Supervillains

The Top Ten

1 The Joker The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics. Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, ...read more.

Joker is such an interesting supervillain. He has a whole bunch of fun tricks for Batman and never put us in boredom. Joker is awesome

Personally, I think he's a bit overrated, but I can see the reasons why people love him

He is as genius as the batman... He is not protected with technology only...

Joker:I got the world in my hands I got the whole world in my, pants!

2 Darkseid Darkseid is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by writer-artist Jack Kirby, the character made a cameo appearance in Superman's Pal Jimmy Olsen #134 before making his full first appearance in Forever People #1. He is the father of Orion, Kalibak, ...read more.

Darkseid has an army that grows with each new capture, taking that beings abilities and putting them to use to serve him. Count in the Omega beams, super technology, and the mind capable of ruling his own planet, and you get a bad guy who should be number 1

Bad ass to the core, super powerful, super intimidating, evil in it's physical form. Easily deserves top notch!

Evil in physical form that has ass whooped Superman and the entire Justice League repeatedly!

Darkseid is the most evil villain in the world!

3 Lex Luthor Alexander "Lex" Luthor is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

In many ways more interesting then the usual number 1 Joker, Lex Luthor is more diverse by being part billionaire, part mad scientist, all mixed together with a large ego. What makes him interesting is that he sees himself as a hero and that he believes he could save the world if it wasn't for Superman (there is some small truth to this). Capable of being a large threat for the Justice League or a personal one for Superman, Lex Luthor has evolved from the simple mad scientist to being one of the most innovative and impressive villains of comics and pop culture. With moments like curing his own ill sister only to reverse it and refusing to explain how he did it as long as Superman lives to spending $75 million on a fake presidential campaign to tick Superman off, I would say he is the best villain there is.

The ultimate villain. People always say "he's just a cliche villain with a stupid plan" but he is the smartest man alive (yep, he's definitely smarter than Batman), and he is the most interesting comic villain ever. Read a comic and you'll see what I mean.

How is Lex number 4!? He should easily be number 2. Do I have to give a reason? It is self explanatory.

What lex luthor sucks

4 Deathstroke Deathstroke is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassin who first appeared in The New Teen Titans #2.

Took down several members of the Justice League (including Green Lantern) by himself at the same time! Almost beat Batman and he's badass!

Since Joker will forever remain #1, I'll vote for everyone's favorite DC super soldier. Deathstroke is amazing.

He is the ultimate mercenary, a promethian blade, machine guns, snipers and has a badass- orange and black mask, and is a master swords man, marksman and is a super soldier with skills, he is literally the evil version of batman

He's just really cool. If I had to pick a villain to be, I would pick him.

5 Catwoman Catwoman is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with the superhero Batman. ...read more.

She is ver sexy and mysterious

She's so beautiful and sexy

She is gymnastics

6 Bane Bane is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

Nearly destroyed Gotham, the only villain to take control of the entire city and nearly blow it in pieces! He is the most powerful and greatest villain in Batman!

Broke Batman's back and almost killed him. Very strong and if his strength isn't enough, he's also very smart.

Bane is a great villain he should be at the front

7 Doomsday Doomsday is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, usually depicted as an adversary of Superman.

He killed Superman (for a while) and makes chaos everywhere he goes. So he's pretty scary.

The only that came close to killing Superman.

Dooms day is so op

Can't be killed by Darkseid

8 Sinestro Thaal Sinestro is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by John Broome and Gil Kane, and first appeared in Green Lantern (vol.

Sinestro is the best super villain of all time.

Great. has the same abities as Hal Jordan denfitly the best by far

Sinestro... smart, most indomitable will of the universe, role model for other villains, even the Guardians give him a lot of chaces for redemption due to his value...
"In Blackest day, In Brightest night,
beware your fears made into light!
Let those who try to stop what's right,
burn like my power, Sinestro's might! "

9 The Riddler The Riddler is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

Yes! The Riddler is my personal favourite DC villain but I love how he is still in the Top Tens. He is extremely intelligent, calculating, twisted, insane, sophisticated and awesome! While he's not the type of villain to go head on into a fight unless he gets desperate, it's his intelligence which is what makes him unique. He tests Batman's detective skills and has even went toe-to-toe against the Flash, Green Arrow and even the Justice League!

Riddle me this and riddle me that this guy is much better than the Lex Luthor brat

Riddle me this and riddle me that this guy is smarter then that old stupid bat

Riddle me this and riddle me that, he is the best the others are a prat

The riddler 16, how is this possible

10 Harley Quinn Harley Quinn is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as a sidekick of the Joker.

In my opinion she is one of the most psychologically intriguing characters in comics, from her obsession with the Joker, to how she walks the line between silly and sinister. My favorite version of her is definitely the Batman: the Animated Series version.

Harley Quinn is under the love of Joker. She is brave enough to love him with no love returned.

YES! So happy she is 10! Although she could be ahead of a few others.

To be honest, Harley Quinn is overrated, and boring.

The Contenders

11 Two-Face Two-Face/Harvey Dent is a fictional villain from DC Comics. Harvey Dent was one of Gotham's most trusted citizens until he had acid poured on his face making him go insane and become a criminal by the name Two-Face. In film, he has been portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in Batman ...read more.

I like the way is uses a coin to decide life or death

He has a good backstory and I like the whole coin flipping concept. He looks evil as well.

12 Black Adam Black Adam is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, and is a primary adversary of the superhero Shazam, formerly known as Captain Marvel.

Great villain I love him

Best villain

13 General Zod

My favorite villain! Nearly destroyed earth to rebuild krypton and kill every human..

He has the same powers as superman he nearly killed superman in superman 2 and the man of steel he has everything superman has making him definitely number 1

14 Poison Ivy Poison Ivy is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

She's able to outwit the majority of her opponents, she can wield her charms unlike most others, she can kill you if you TOUCH her. She has control over all (ALL) plant life, can manipulate men into doing her bidding with ease, can generate vines from virtually anywhere... lest I go on? How is she not higher on this list?

She looks sexy

She is mouthwatering sexy

She's /seriously/ 21 on this list? She can manipulate men into doing her bidding, has genius-level intellect, has control over ALL plant life, uses her wiles to distract '" she can kill you if you so much as TOUCH her. HOW is she so low on the list?

15 Professor Zoom Eobard Thawne, otherwise known as Professor Zoom and the Reverse-Flash, is a fictional supervillain appearing in comic books published by DC Comics.

This guy literally manipulated himself out of dying, like how insane is that!

you mean the reverse flash? that's his real super villain name, not professor zoom. he's so evil and smart ahhhh I love him

He is the ultimate bad guy, who started out with good intentions, then got muddled up by a time paradox so crazy it would make his own head hurt. He turned evil and it is so FUN to see the mind games played against his nemesis the Flash, especially considering the history the two characters have. This should be much, MUCH higher on the list!

I mean Seriously, he's basically The Flash but even FASTER. He set up one of my favorite superhero arcs, without him, Barry Allen's mother wouldn't have been killed, if she hadn't been murdered, Barry Allen wouldn't have become the Flash.

16 Brainiac Brainiac is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of Superman.
17 Mr. Freeze Mr. Freeze, real name Victor Fries, is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.
18 Penguin The Penguin is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

He should be top 25 minimum

Why are we forgetting about him? He is a great villain. Many villains above him should actually be below him. Poison Ivy and Catwoman were in terrible films, but the Penguin helped make his live action movie memorable. While I don't dislike Harley Quinn, she is a bit too new on the comics scene, while Penguin has been around since 1941. Star Sapphire is a cheesy concept and Bizzaro is dumb. He can foil a smart superhero like Batman, unlike Black Adam who mostly loses to Billy Batson. Meanwhile, Ares was taken from Greek mythology, whereas this guy is original. Two Face's coin flipping is annoying and the Scarecrow is a laughable rogue. Penguin has more street cred than the Riddler. General Zod and Ra's al Ghul got killed in their movies, but Penguin didn't, yet Zod and Ra's are still above him. Who are Starro and Scorpion anyway? Deadshot is not really a villain since he fights villains on the Suicide Squad. Gorilla Grodd is weird since in the JLU show, he tried making everyone apes. ...more

He is funny

19 Reverse Flash Reverse-Flash is a name which has been used by several fictional supervillains in American comic books published by DC Comics. Each iteration is an enemy of the hero known as The Flash.

He Is The Best

20 Killer Croc Killer Croc is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

21 Ares
22 Ra's Al Ghul Ra's al Ghul is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

23 Atrocitus Atrocitus is a fictional alien supervillain and anti-hero in the DC Comics Universe. Created by Geoff Johns and Ethan Van Sciver, Atrocitus is an enemy of the Guardians of the Universe and Sinestro, their former Green Lantern.

25 Star Sapphire
