    Okay, we have Lex and the Joker duking it out for the #1 spot of who is DC's greatest villain... but who do you think is the absolute bottom of the barrel when it comes to DC bad guys? I didn't include a poll because I'd undoubtedly leave someone out who deserves a spot. But here are the bad guys that I personally can't stand, off the top of my head.

    Captain Cold
    Mr. Mxyzptlk
    Bat-Mite
    Captain Boomerang (in case you haven't caught on, I pretty much hate any villain with the word "Captain" in their name)
    Tweedledee and Tweedledum
    Merlyn
    The Fiddler

    Cold's ****ing badass, man. Read Johns' Flash run, you'll see why.

    Mxy was pretty sweet in Adventures of Superman.

    Recommended Captain Cold reading -
    Flash #182
    Catwoman #21

    Just goes to show, there are no bad characters, only bad writers.

    Rucka's Mxy issues in AoS were his best ones, IMO...and his entire run was fantastic.

    Captain Cold is probably one the best villains DC has got. He is easily one of my favourites up with Black Adam and Johnny Sorrow (and the rest of the Injustice Society).

    Merlyn has been badass in the past with his League of Assasin adventures.

    Crazy Quilt, Kite-Man have always been the classic "lame villains". The new Sonar as well was a walking failure for Kyle Rayner.

    But people have been threatening to make both Crazy Quilt and Kite-Man much more badass for years and it could easily be done. Look what was just done with Catman and The Calculator. Everyone always talks about Catman being turned around but the Calculator in my opinion was a much better turn of character making him amazingly dangerous. At least Catman had fought Batman to a stalement before... Calc was a man walking around dressed as a Calculator leaving math based clues to his crimes.

    Personally I always hated Scarface and the Ventriloquist.

    Rainbow Raider. Come on, how do you really beat a guy named "Roy G. Bivolo" who rides rainbows around?

    Also, anyone who claims that Mxyzptlk is a lame character after reading Rucka's AoS and Moore's Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow should probably just give up on comics altogether. :(

    I like Busiek's reasoning on why Composite Superman is lame:

    He is a pretty stupid character. I don't think he trumps the Rainbow Raider, though. :p

    I'll give my vote for Bat-Mite. If you manage to remember a really lame villain I think it would be Bat-Mite.

    No. The Flash, Green Lantern, and the Metal Men are all cool. Nothing about rainbows or the name "Roy G. Bivolo" is cool. :o

    Ok, that would be more lame. I think that would threaten the entire space/time continuum with its lameness.

    Sorry dude, I will always hate Mxy... just because someone writes a good story and revamps a character to some degree doesn't make up for decades of him being the most annoying *****ebag in comics. Of course, that's just my opinion... but ever since I was a kid, my eyes would roll every time I picked up a Superman comic and found out Mxy was in it. But to each his own.

    Wow. Good thing you weren't reading comics in the '40s. Batman would forever be stuck in the goofy, Dick Sprang mode for you. :(
