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?
I like Joker and Mr. Freeze.
Surprisingly, in the Villains popularity contest I'm doing, Joker lost to Bane! Most shocking results ever.
You can vote for your favorite. We are nearing the finals.
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.
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.
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.
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.
