A Supervillain is a villain who displays special powers, skills or equipment powerful enough to be a typically serious challenge to a superhero. The term has largely been coined by comic books, where superhuman heroes fight similarly super-powered Villains.
Supervillains not exist only in Comics Books from Marvel and DC Comics, they also are expanded to other media:
- Good examples of supervillains in comics books are Venom, the Joker, Catwoman, Bane and the Shredder.
- Good examples of supervillains in anime and manga are Frieza, Sir Isaac Ray Peram Westcott, Cell, Kurumi Tokisaki and Esdeath.
- Good examples of supervillains in cartoon are Dark Danny, Mojo Jojo, Syndrome, Aku and Dr. Drakken.
