You forgot Darkseid.

@Primmaster64: I wouldn't count Darkseid specifically as a Superman foe, plus Darkseid just takes away from any of Superman's other foes rather than enhancing his rogues gallery. 
 
Besides I find Dominus, Solaris, Cythonna, Gog, & Imperiex far more then worthy to make up for his absence.

Well...Darkseid was Superman's primary foe in TAS. So...maybe he should be # 2.

@Primmaster64: Honestly I plan on writing a blog on why Darkseid was more harmful than beneficial for that series.  I honestly see Darkseid as a Double-Edge Sword as a Superman foe.

Alright, but I consider Darkseid as a Superman enemy....To each's own then.

Makes me sad at how they continously turn to Darkseid when they have Dominus,Solaris,Henshaw and Gog.Superman has the most laziest writers EVAR.

@entropy_aegis: Yes, especially when they treat him more like Mongul than Darkseid. Nothing wrong with Mongul, in fact I do find the stories with him in the Bronze age to be above average when him & Supes clash, especially when you have Darkseid easily beating Supes at the time to give a proper scale of Darkseid's powerlevel.
 
Superman does have lazy writers, that can't be denied. Imperiex was a good concept but with the Our Worlds At War story & Loeb ugh. It was ruined. Like to see the idea handled better. Cythonna could more than make-up for the lack of strong female foes. As Rao is a God of Life for Krypton, Cythonna could be a Goddess of Death and powerful foe for Clark to face.
 
Dominus actually appeared in Superman: Shadow of Apokolips videogame. Even though he didn't appear in the Animated Series the game was based on. Superman's rogues gallery needs some more exposure badly. 
 
And a good writer should know Darkseid doesn't specifically fit into Superman's world as a whole, he's a far grander villain than that. I could see Superman getting involved to help Orion and other New Gods out from time to time, but overall? Darkseid should be facing Orion on the battlefield not Supes.

@mr.obvious: As would I, tired of the Batman cartoons. After STAS they seemed to have stopped trying. Hopefully Supes can get another one in the near future.
