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!

Toyman

VS.

There are some weak competitors, yeah.

I'll go with Reactron too, I mean he did destroy New Krypton, so it's Reactron 5-0 Toymaker.

He was kinda big back in 2005/6. Hasn't showed up much since, though.

Parasite.

And jeez, can't believe Toyman lost - his origin story in Action Comics was creepy good.

#26 Posted by Pokeysteve (8085 posts) - - Show Bio

Parasite.

It bothers me you labeled him as "Toymaker" instead of "Toyman".

#27 Posted by SmashBrawler (5501 posts) - - Show Bio

Parasite 6-0.

It bothers me you labeled him as "Toymaker" instead of "Toyman".

Oh. Wow. That's... really not good. How did I miss that?

Oh wow, I didn't realize I wrote that too.

Haha I read your post and I guess my mind just kinda rolled with it.

Gotta go to the edit button - no one must know of this shame.

You were probably really excited to put this awesome thread together!

It's an alias of his so no worries. I'm just crazy.

@pokeysteve: Ha ha, thanks. I actually did have a lot in my mind when I started this thing. No wonder Google barely had any results when I searched for "The Toymaker", though :P

Anyway, Parasite wins

BATTLE 4

Riot

VS.

Silver Banshee

I'm going with Silver Banshee here, 1-0.

Silver Banshee 5-0.

And for those of you wondering: yes, I had to put Riot in. It was between him, Bloodsport, Obsession or Skyhook. I probably should have gone with Faora or Mokkari and Simyan, though.

BATTLE 5

Titano

I have to say these battles have been quite one-sided so far.

Brainiac
