DC Comics have churned out countless fantastical criminals over the years. From evil Kryptonians to psychotic clowns, the beloved company has created some of the most iconic villains, not just in comic books, but in literature. After all, who in the world hasn't heard of Batman's nemesis, the Joker?
It's curious how the Joker is the most famous supervillain of all time considering he has absolutely no superpowers. On the other side of the spectrum, there are many criminals in the DC universe that could wipe the floor with the Justice League and yet, they are rarely in the limelight.
Just because a villain is incredibly powerful doesn't necessarily mean they'll become popular. In fact, some of the deadliest criminals in comic history have been dismissed or forgotten due to bad writing or being too weird.
There are a few characters in this list that you probably never heard of. There are some you may know but didn't realise the full scale of their powers. And there are others who sound so ridiculous, you would never consider them a threat. Here are ten DC supervillains who are far more than meets the eye.
