Default Re: Who should be the villain in the sequel for Man of Steel?

It's not just the GA, us nerds like seeing superheroes actually doing super-stuff, too. But that doesn't necessarily require an equally super-powered adversary. For instance, Lex could have The Penguin blow up the sewers underneath Gotham's financial district, reducing it to rubble and allowing LexCorp to make a tender for the redevelopment of the land. Stopping the bombs being planted, and evacuating the citizens, would amply occupy both Batman and Superman, without the need for costumed metahumans for them to punch.

Edit: The Question got in first.
