Is it just us, or is it a weird time to be a regular person in the world right now?

Between... everything that's going on right now, you really couldn't be blamed for relying heavily on escapist entertainment these days. There's nothing better right now than delving into your favourite comic books, and just imagining how nice it would be to escape to Superman's universe and live there for a while.

A lot of the following misdeeds are properly evil and thoroughly messed-up, so please think twice before clicking on that NEXT button!
