Top Ten Superman Villains

Superman might not have the best villains, but these ones are some of the best.

The Top Ten

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

He is extremely intelligent. He is basically DC's version of Norman Osborn. He is the perfect example of Brains BEATS Brawn. He, along with Batman, is the only human that is able to go toe-to-toe against the Man of Steel.

He is ruthless, cunning and can even keep the entire Legion of Doom in check. He was able to conquer the entire world (but of course gets defeated by Superman) and has caused the most pain towards Superman than all his other villains like Metallo, Darkseid, Brainiac, etc.

Lex Luthor is without a doubt the greatest Superman villain, one of the best DC villains overall and definitely OWNS the title as Superman's archenemy.

Lex Luthor is so good because he has no powers but can defeat Superman because he is so intelligent. In his suit, he is one of the most powerful villains in all comic book history. He is Superman's main enemy and is way better than Doomsday or Darkseid. Except for them, Lex Luthor is the most powerful villain on this list by a long shot.

When you think of super villians, lex luthor instantly comes to mind. If you walk up to a random person and ask them to name a superman enemy, Lex Luthor is almost always the answer. He does whatever is necessary and has no concience which makes him a great viliian. although darkseid is a great runner up somehow lex luthor always ends up in the movies due to his emence intalect. he's like the batman of supervillians and who doesn't like batman. plus batman was the one who beat superman in fight by faking his death and stabbing him with kryptonite. That's

Lex Luthor has destroyed New Krypton and is smarter than both Superman and Batman. He worked out Supes' secret identity and has fooled nearly everyone in DC into trusting him. He should be #1 and he is.

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.

I prefer him as a Justice League villain but yeah, he has gotten the most personal with Superman out of the entire Justice League. Heck! Superman even believed that KILLING Darkseid was the only answer to stop him!

Darkseid is utter personification of both pure evil, cruel intelligence and power. Frankly, every other villain, especially Luthor who always seems petty to me, can't really compare,

Darkseid is stronger than superman and more intelligent. Hope they put him maybe in the final superman movie because defeating the best villain is a good way to end a movie series

Overrated villain. He's cruel and evil, but in the last years he has been more a villain of Justice League than a Superman's villain. Superman has several villains better than him.

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

Doomsday is far my favorite super villain of all time. Not only he was the only villain that killed superman but he also withstand Darkseids omega beam and defeated him toe to toe. Most importantly he shockingly defeated the Justice League with one arm behind his back. The secret for Doomsday is that very time he gets killed, he regenerates back to life and becoming immune to whatever it killed him before. This signifies why Doomsday is a force to be recon with.

I loathe doomsday, you know why. He was literally created by the comic company only to raise sales by having something kill superman. He is uninspired and the result of a boardroom meeting. And I hate characters like that.

Why is Doomsday number 5 he has survived the omega beam from darkseid and has beat the justice league with one arm behind his back which makes number one by those facts and he is way stronger than general zod.

He KILLED SUPERMAN. Darkseid never did that, nor did Luthor. And what did he do when he was resurrected? He went to apokolyps and BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF DARKSEID. This guy is a killing machine.

General Zod

General Zod was a ass because he killed a lot of people snd wanted to take over kripton and is the most powerful human villain in DC universe. He is very smart, secretive, and is very loud when he yells at people

Zod kicked Superman's ass in Man of Steel. Never thought so highly of him until I saw the new movie.

He has same powers of superman so therefore he is a very tough foe you do not want to mess with

Superman's dark reflection. He is a worthy enemy towards the Man of Steel.

Braniac

By far my favorite superman villain and would be my number one. His various incarnations are all good but his best is the "true" Braniac from the Superman: Braniac arc. Caused Pa Kent's death purely out of petty spite. Superman fantasizes about beating Braniac to death in one of the most badass sequences of dialog-free panels you'll ever see.

I vote for Brainiac because he shrinks worlds, he is one of the most intelligent beings in the universe, he has all the tech you would need, he can control minds and he is the best! He definitely deserves top 5 not 8!
(P.S- I voted for this Brainiac instead of the other Brainiac because this is higher! I do not know why they put him on here twice.)

It's ridiculous how low this character is. Not only is he one of Superman's top 3 villains, but I'd argue he's one of the best villains in all of DC Comics.

Hello People! Are you mad? Braniac should have a solid place in top 3 and you didn't even put him in top ten... Be serious...

Bizarro

Bizarro,oh man, I love him because he can be very dangerous without really want to, 'cause his innocence and opposite way to think, wich make him funny and even more dangerous because can be fooled easily. Also he loves Les Luthor, and that's not really a good thing 'cause he will follow any order from him

Not the most evil. Not the most dangerous. Not the most iconic. Why is Bizarro an awesome villain? Because he is all a villain shouldn't be. Bizarro represents the fun, the madness and the action that the comics are!

He's not really a villain in my opinion. He is more of an anti-villain. He believes that the villainous acts he does are heroic. He wants to be like Superman but does the opposite. He is so innocent.

"He is the worst villain of all time. He loves superman and is much weaker. He is also completely sane and rational. He hates destroying everything and loves being a superhero." LOL #OppositeDayWithBizarro

Metallo Metallo is a comic book supervillain and cyborg who appears in Superman stories published by DC Comics.

He is one of my favourite Superman villains. His heart is powered by Kryptonite and he is loyal towards Lex Luthor. He is also one of the few Superman villains to push Superman through his limit. That's how bad he is.

Metallo was a regular human being, which is always a good story for a villain. He's also powered by Superman's only weakness. You can't get any badder than that.

he is a robot who can disguise as a human being I love him very much!

Metallo is indeed a very popular villain, he is super strength and can easily destroy buildings and fight superman at anytime and is also very smart and crule

Parasite The Parasite is the name of several fictional supervillains that appear in Superman comic book stories published by DC Comics.

As a kid I watch adventures of batman and superman. In the cartoon parasite was my favorite of all the villains

He just needs to grab you and you die. He is definitely one of Superman's most deadliest enemies.

Sooo cool and you get the point

He's awesome

Mr. Mxyptlk

A DC villain that many who have not heard of him think of him as a joke, but in reality is one of the most powerful DC villains to ever exist. He can alter reality itself!

this guy was from another dimention and had the edge over superman, when I saw his premier in the superman television cartoon show I thought the show would never end superman and him were just going back and forth.

Long live Gilbert Gottfried for his voice work!

Lobo Lobo is a fictional character that appears in comic books published by DC Comics. The Lobo character was created by Roger Slifer and Keith Giffen, and first appeared in Omega Men #3. Lobo is an alien born on the utopian planet of Czarnia, and works as an interstellar mercenary and bounty hunter.

I loved him in Injustice. Also, I believe he is Stan Lee's favorite DC character.

I know lobo should not be number one but should be in the top ten.

The Newcomers

? Kryptonite Man
? Copperhead

The Contenders

Toyman

It's because we all know the story of lex vs superman so

Toyman has no goal or anything he is just some creepy character that hates superman and sometimes doesn't always act smart

Over Cyborg Superman, Imperiex, and Kalibak? Really?

Hank Henshaw Hank Henshaw is a fictional supervillain featured in the DC Comics universe. While originally featured primarily as an enemy of Superman, recent years have repositioned him as one of the main enemies of the Green Lantern Corps.

This is Cyborg Superman
