Evil Superman is an antagonist in the Superfriends. Unlike his good counterpart, he is extremely ruthless and manipulative, so he likes to spread chaos and ruin other people's lives. He is also the leader of the Super Enemies and a wanted criminal.
He was voiced by the late Danny Dark.
Superman and his allies cause trouble in his dimension such as flooding a town by breaking the dam and making Mt.Vesuvius erupt. He managed to get to his good counterpart's world after Mt. Vesuvius erupted and his good counterpart ended up in the evil Superman's dimension. Seeing the opportunity, he poses his as his good counterpart and tries take over the world. He tricks the Superfriends and starts robbing a bank truck and the gold bank. Batman and Robin heard about it and fought Superman and realized he's from another dimension. Superman looked up Batman and Robin in an armored trucked and left to spread mayhem.
Evil Superman later went to Saudi Arabia and took over the oil resereves. He's ransoming it for the money supply of the entire Earth. Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Robin went to the oil reserves and fought Evil Superman. They managed to put a fight against the Evil Superman but couldn't defeat since he was too strong. Evil Superman was defeated when Superman put antimatter into the volcano causing them to go back to their own universe. Evil Superman returned to his dimension and was angry at his teammates for ruining his chances of taking over his good counterpart's world.
