Every hero needs a villain. In fighting them, the extreme superiority of our heroes is revealed. The methods and morals of villains are usually the key difference between them and the heroes. Many bad guys cause mayhem for mayhem's sake, with sometimes no apparent reason other than simply being bad. What makes a villain great, however, is the complexity of their character. The truly terrible villains of DC Comics have depths of cruelty that grow with them, and specific motivations driving them. They challenge the heroes and their ideals, seeing the caped and cowled figures as obstacles to be overcome. Compiled by fans, these 100 moments are the greatest (worst?) villainous acts in DC Comic book history. It's a great starting point for new readers or a nostalgic look for hardcore fans through the villains old and new.
