Awesome; thank you for the suggestions!

I've added Kestrel and Black Hornet; the others are already on the list.

Hi, Rawhide!
I wanted to know if I could include your list into my "Successors"-list. Essentially a list about characters that only exist as some form of a copy of another character. 
It would help a lot!

There's also Cyber-cat (Catwoman), Shadowstorm (Firestorm), Nightcreeper (Prowler), Kryptonoid (Superman), and Superior 5 (Inferior 5). I don't know how to make em links, so just search for em.

The Superior 5!  How could I have forgotten them?! 
 
Thanks for the suggestions.  I'm a bit torn on including Cyber-Cat (isn't she technically a hero-turned-villain based on a villain-turned-hero?!), but I've added the rest.

Calcium, Barium, Aluminum, Zirconium, Plutonium, and Sodium (collectively known as the "Robots of Terror", though no team page has been created yet) have their own pages. They are evil counterparts of the Metal Men. Their profiles don't have pictures yet, so...

Spider-Man Doppleganger definently deserves to be on the list. The Captain America doppelganger, Malice, the Invisible Woman doppelganger, Moonshade, the Moon Knight Doppelganger  and Hellspawn, the Daredevil Doppelganger, deserve to be on it too, but aren't as well known.  Possibly the Three Ghosts of Batman, Josef Muller, Branca and Michael Lane, if the first two have pages.
 
Dr. Impossible and his gang qualify too. There is a Barracuda on the Anti-Matter Earth that is an evil aquaman. Hope some of these fit this great and comprehensive list!
 
Also, man! That's a lot of evil Caps!

Thanks for the comments and suggestions! 
 
I've added Dr. Impossible (a glaring omission).  Doppelganger was already on there, as was Hellspawn.  Unfortunately the other characters you suggested don't have profile pages (yet).

Hi, Rawhide!

First of all, thanks again for letting me use your list to better my own.

Second: I think I have some suggestions for your list. Kestrel, Condor and Swan are opposite versions of Hawk and Dove! I dont remember them being in your list. If they are: I´m sorry. If not: There you go :)

Posted by RawhideKid

Hey!

Thanks so much for the suggestions; I had Kestrel but I've added Condor and Swan. Much obliged!

Dont forget Abominatrix (She-Hulk) I mean, a male version Abomination is evil version of Hulk, female version of Abomination should be the evil version of She-Hulk.

Sailor Galaxia is not an evil version of Sailor Moon, she's just an evil sailor senshi. There is no connection between the two of them beyond their both being senshi. Galaxia wasn't even the first evil sailor scout... If you're looking for evil dopplegangers in the Sailor Moon universe, Black Lady is the evil version of Chibi-Usa and Mistress 9 is kind of the evil version of Sailor Saturn

Also, aside from the name, Man-Bat has just about nothing to do with Batman.

DC's Lord Havok and the Extremists - (villians Dr. Doom, Magneto, Sabertooth ,Doc Ock etc)
