Most Powerful DC Supervillain

Postby JordanT4021 » Aug 11th, 2015, 10:20 pm

I thought this would be a cool idea for a thread. I really wanted to start a debate type thing where everyone chooses a super villain who they think can make the most damage (On a hero or city). I'd like it if the choices were restricted to inhabitants of earth because those intergalactic villains are basically gods. You can use comics and any other relevant media to back up your point.

My choice would be Poison Ivy .

I really think she's under appreciated. There's a huge chance that if you were to look outside you would find greenery, plant-life and nature. These are all things that Ivy can control. Her powers are limitless. She can control people's mind, she can produce toxins and spores that can kill with a touch, she can communicate with plants and can control their growth. In Arkham Asylum, she destroys the whole island without batting an eyelash. In the comic storyline Hush, she takes control of Superman and forces him to try and kill Batman and Catwoman. Although she became more of an anti hero in the new 52, She threatened the Birds of Prey into killing the heads of companies who were killing the environment. She is the furthest thing from a team player, as seen in Arkham Knight and is intent on wiping out the human race so that her plants can take back the earth that is rightfully theirs.

Poison Ivy is powerful beat she'll get destroyed by someone like Darkseid.

Yeah, but keep it limited to super villains on earth. Ivy doesn't stand a chance against someone like Darkseid or Parallax or the anti-monitor.

Keeping to villains on Earth, I'd say Vandal Savage or Ra's al Ghul. They are both practically immortal and can easily have access to an arsenal of highly powerful weapons and thousands of men willing to work for them. They'd easily overpower the likes of Ivy or bring them to a tired surrender.

I'm not sure it would be so easy. Ivy can talk to her plants. If they attempted an attack on her, they'd warn her straight away as soon as they set foot any where near her. She could easily swat them away with vines or feed them to man eating plants (much like Harvest, although she couldn't control that very well). I know Ra's and Vandal are both immortal but Ivy could easily incapacitate them long enough to get rid of them by burying them or controlling them with her pheromones.

If Batman can defeat Ivy, many super humans would be able to defeat Ivy.

see, thats what I don't understand. If she has as much power as they make her out to have, then why is she always being taken down by Batman.
Anyway, I really want to know what you guys think. I was thinking Joker because, well, he's the Joker but I'm not sure. Black Adam could be real trouble too.

I thinking villains that cannot be taken down by just one super hero. Justice League villains. Someone like Morgan Le Fey?

Surely, by definition, it has to be Darkseid.
There are definite arguments for Parallax, Ares etc. Anti-Monitor could certainly top the bill, but im not sure it's really a villain (more a force of nature).
