Best DC Villains

notyetsaved
I love DC and I feel that the villains make the hero.

The Top Ten

1 The Joker 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.

The most psychotic villain who has ever crossed Batman, the Joker has been the number one for most people for quite some time. Who doesn't love a sociopath? - notyetsaved

Forget about the others, Joker for the win.

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

Best villain of all times

2 Darkseid Darkseid

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

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

Darkseid is the most evil villain in the world!

2 words Final Crisis, anyone who's read that story should know why should be number 1.

3 Harley Quinn 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. - Cartermd

MY favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite.

4 Deathstroke 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.

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.

He is so awesome and cool, he is also extremely intelligent as well.

5 Lex Luthor 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.

One of Superman's greatest enemies, Lex Luthor has been named the rich badass villain who is extremely clever. - notyetsaved

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

7 Doomsday 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.

Dooms day is so op

Can't be killed by Darkseid - villainlover

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

Also known to be sexy, Catwoman is one of the rare villains who switches from good to bad, but can't help indulging in anything pretty, and that you have to pay for. - notyetsaved

She is ver sexy and mysterious

Because of her tits

She is gymnastics

9 The Riddler 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! - Daviddv0601

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

The riddler 16, how is this possible

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

Great villain I love him

Best villain

The Contenders

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

Bane is a great villain he should be at the front

The new Bane, just plain badass. - notyetsaved

12 Sinestro 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. - MyRockets345

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

13 Professor Zoom/ The Reverse Flash Professor Zoom/ The Reverse Flash

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.

I mostly like them because they are in the flash witch is my favorite ever. The flash is actually faster than them not the other way.

This guy should be number 3

14 Poison Ivy 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 is fast, sarcastic, good sensed, insane, and extremely sexy. Fighting with her is quite the challenge. - notyetsaved

She looks sexy

She is mouthwatering sexy

15 General Zod General Zod

16 Reverse Flash Reverse Flash

17 Ares

Amazing

23 Mandrakk
24 Bizarro

The absolute opposite to Superman, Bizarro is a little all over the place, but is a very well thought of character that settles well with both children and adults. - notyetsaved

My favorite character

25 Nekron Nekron Nekron is a comic book supervillain appearing in books published by DC Comics, specifically those related to Green Lantern.
26 Trigon Trigon Trigon is a demon, a comic book character published by DC Comics. He is one of the most powerful beings in the DC Universe, having enslaved many worlds.
27 Star Sapphire

Hal Jordan/Green Lantern's girlfriend was chosen to become the villain she is today. She isn't that original though because most people who were close to a green lantern had this fate. - notyetsaved

28 Mr. Freeze 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.
29 Steppenwolf
30 The Penguin The Penguin

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

Fart

He is funny

31 Solomon Grundy
32 Cheetah

Wonder Woman's greatest enemies, Cheetah is just as ferocious and stubborn as Wonder Woman. Neither really loses most of the time, it's more of a promise to reunite and battle again. - notyetsaved

33 Captain Cold Captain Cold Captain Cold is a fictional supervillain published by DC Comics. The character was created by John Broome and Carmine Infantino, and first appeared in Showcase #8, in which he was the first megavillain to face the Silver Age Flash.

35 Mad Hatter
36 Deadshot Deadshot Deadshot is a fictional character who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of Batman . He has traditionally been portrayed as a supervillain, but has more recently taken the role of an antihero .
