Every Super Hero Needs A Super-Villain DC Comics has created some of the most twisted and complex villainous characters in the world of comics. DC Comics Super-Villains 100 Greatest Moments features the 100 Greatest Moments of 74 of the top bad guys throughout the history of DC Comics. This book includes the greatest moments of these super-villains at the peak of their achievements; committing heinous acts of death and destruction, all to achieve a specific goal. They challenge the heroes and their ideals, seeing the caped figures as obstacles to be overcome. Picked by several groups of hardcore fans, these 100 moments are the greatest (or is that the worst?) villainous acts in DC Comic book history. Apart from the well-known characters like Joker, Bane, Lex Luthor, Death Stroke, Ra’s Al Ghul , Ocean Master, Two Face , It also includes many other lesser known villains like Darkseid, Brainiac, Bizzaro, Sinestro, Doomsday, Riddler, Black Manta, Hush and many more. Every character’s profile includes a biography and a backstory that covers key points in a character’s arc, as well as a comic cover and few pages of comic panels, depicting their most villainous act. It was exciting to discover both new and forgotten villains and how villains evolved from being mad scientists and mobsters to intergalactic warlords. Also, how the humorous tone and colorful look of the 70s slowly gave way to the dark and brooding tone of the current times, how the art style too became more complex and how it reflects the changing tastes of the readers. Overall, DC Comics Super-Villains: 100 Greatest Moments is a gem of a book; both informative and entertaining and treat for not just the DC fans but every comic book fan.
