Is there any superhero out there that has more powers than Superman? It literally just seems like they took every power imaginable and jammed everything into one superhero. I remember when I was a kid, I was a much bigger Batman fan because at least I could believe that he may be beaten by one of his enemies. Yet, now that I am older, I am able to relook at Superman's gallery of foes and be impressed at the sheer amount of variety and power that emerges.
I suppose it makes sense that when your superhero is good at most things, he needs villains that are going to be every bit as powerful to be believable as threats. It does not help that his most iconic villain, Lex Luthor, is seemingly just a bald, smart man. Some of these villains you may recognize from the big screen, while others are going to be featured in movies in the near future. Either way, this list will make you start to rethink that kryptonite is the only thing that Superman needs to fear. Here are the 10 most powerful villains that have ever gone up against Superman.
10 General Zod
7 The Parasite
5 Cyborg Superman
3 Lex Luthor
If you don’t think that Doomsday is a powerful character, I need you to take a second to reevaluate that his name is literally Doomsday. The character was created by Dan Jurgens because he felt that Superman needed to have a villain who would be a physical challenge in a fight. Given that he is the character who killed Superman, you better believe Jurgens got his wish. Doomsday emerged from a buried vault, and with one hand, dispatched the entire Justice League team. Doomsday battled Superman over a course of a few comics. Finally, in Superman (vol. 2) #75, Doomsday and Superman physically beat each other to death.
When it comes to people that you don’t want to piss off, Batman may be pretty high on your list. As people know with the upcoming film, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, pissing off Batman may be exactly what Superman does. The two have had some conflict throughout the comics, but are also famous allies who have spent significant time in the Justice League together. There is no telling who is going to come out on top in the new film, but it will certainly be something amazing to see. If you have to wonder if Batman is powerful, clearly you haven’t seen his films. Batman is a genius, and has no shortage of tricks up his sleeve to always come out on top against what is one of the best casts of villains around. He may not have laser vision, but you better believe he’s going to be able to mess up your plans.
