Villain's Month is coming up soon in the DCU, so in honor of that, Who do you think is the best bad guy or gal?

#2 Posted by RulerOfThisUniverse (6366 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker is my favorite.

#3 Posted by Chronus (1115 posts) - - Show Bio

Either Darkseid or Lex Luthor. I'm leaning towards Lex more.

#4 Posted by The Stegman (25989 posts) - - Show Bio

I say Lex Luthor, though Darkseid or Anti Monitor would probably be the two most devastating.

#5 Posted by Hawk80 (351 posts) - - Show Bio

Blue Snowman?

Seriously: Darkseid or Luthor

#6 Posted by TDK_1997 (15072 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker,Lex Luthor or Darkseid.

Flash's Rogues. Yes, all of them.

Flash's Rogues are vastly underestimated, even though they are probably the most coordinated group of villains in the DC Universe. They definitely are a competitior. I think Lex Luthor is another one simply because his genius is like no other. He'll find something to manipulate his desires. Sinestro is another great villain, being the biggest threat to the Green Lantern Corps. He also killed all the Guardians except Ganthet and Sayd and controlled Parallax. Darkseid is another one. I hated how they portrayed him in the New 52. He was a monster with power rather an manipulative genius that once controlled and used sixty million Daxamites without a sweat.

@viperking: yeah, the Darkseid portrayal was disgusting. He was more evil in JLU.

I also really like the Al Ghuls

Darkseid the god of evil.

Can't go wrong with Lex Luthor. He has such a strong hate towards Superman, and clear intentions as to why he wants to be better than him. It's so easy to understand his motives, he becomes very relatable and interesting. Perfect definition of an arch-enemy.

Which ever one you like the best.

Luthor, Joker, Darkseid are the 3 greatest DC villains. (dis)honorable mentions go to Black Adam, Sinestro, Ra's al Ghul, and the Rogues.

#31 Posted by Samuel_Simmons (184 posts) - - Show Bio

Joker

#32 Posted by GonzoVG (42 posts) - - Show Bio

The Joker.

#33 Posted by jeanespinosa21 (217 posts) - - Show Bio

To me the best villain is not the one who kills the most but the one who pushes a hero to the limit and that sometimes makes you wonder if his way is correct. I would say joker but i'm a huge batman fan and joker is big part of that. So i guess sinestro would be it. He's just a great all-around villain who thinks he is the good guy and really makes you wonder the "heroes" morality.

#34 Edited by dtschemmel (504 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Manta is beyond my favorite. PEWWWWWW Way past everything.

#35 Posted by theDCkid (891 posts) - - Show Bio

Deathstroke is my favourite villain as of late.

#36 Posted by entropy_aegis (15438 posts) - - Show Bio

Darkseid.

LEX LUTHOR

For me, Lex Luthor is one of the best-written characters in the history of comics. Lex Luthor is a hero. He built Metropolis - the city of tomorrow at the fore-front of technology in the world.

His resentment of the people of Metropolis for their unconditional love for Superman, while he had to earn it, drove him to devote his life to better the Man of Steel.

Lex possesses the most brilliant mind in the DCU and as a super-villian, rubs shoulders with the likes of Darkseid and Brainiac.

At the same time, he is mankind's greatest threat, but also their true savior.

@monsterstomp: helspont in the dcu? interesting... must search

He's been smacking Superman around like a pimp, how could anyone forget Helspont :D

Lex Luthor or Deathstroke.

#42 Edited by Black Lantern Mar-vell (2011 posts) - - Show Bio

It's a toss up between Black Adam, Darkseid, Sinestro , & Reverse Flash.

#43 Posted by The_Tree (7946 posts) - - Show Bio

Maxwell Lord is my favorite, but I think Darkseid is the best.

Lex Luthor & Joker are the epitome of villains in the comic-universe, just as their counterparts are the epitome of heroes.
