To celebrate the upcoming release of a certain movie I've decided to make a Superman tournament, but instead of giving the spotlight to his supporting cast and allies, I'm giving it to his villains. Superman's rogues gallery is generally looked down upon by most people, probably because it's been having a fairly large amount of forgettable additions through the years. I've always thought, however, that many of his villains have a unique charm and are generally fun to read, even if some of them are kinda forgettable. It is true that Batman's or Spider-Man's rogues gallery would make a better and more compelling tournament but what the hell, this is Kal-El's year.
Anyway, we're here to see who's the biggest, most important and more popular Superman villain! This is how it's gonna work:
- The first villain that gets 8 votes wins. 12 votes in the final.
- All the battles in the first round have been sorted randomly.
- Vote not only for the villain you like more but for the villain that you think has had a bigger impact in Superman's history.
- And yes, I've added a few characters whose presence here is somewhat dubious (*cough*Darkseid*cough*) but I went with both actual Superman rogues and characters people generally see as Superman villains (thanks to the DCAU, among others).
Now let's go with BATTLE 1!
