Top 5 DC Comic Villians

DC comics have been around for a long time, and there have been hundreds of villians that have come and gone. Here are my favorites.

#5 Lex Luther -
Lex Luthor has no super human powers himself. However, Luthor is a genius and financial wizard. He is one of the most powerful men on the planet and has access to all the technology developed by his company Lex-Corp and the wealth to buy anything he desires.

#4 Sinestro - This is actually more than one villian. They all look the same and are all part of what is called the Sinestro Corps. They use yellow rings that are similar to the one used by the Green Lantern. The powerful yellow power rings were built on a planet named Qward. They use the weilders thoughts to create opjects out o thin air. The yellow rings differ than Green Lantern's green ring in that they are fueled by fear rather than willpower. They also have no known weaknesses, unlike Green Lantern ring which had a vulnerability to yellow. The yellow power rings are not restricted from killing intelligent life as the Green Lantern's power rings were.

#3 Despero - Despero gained enhanced strength and endurance after bathing in the flame of Py’tar.
Mental Powers: Despero’s mutant third eye gives him vast mental powers that include : Hypnosis, Illusion casting, Telepathy and Telekinesis.
