    Bane is my favorite villain, so I really like Secret Six, but overall if I have to choose one, my favorite is the Legion of Doom from JLU. JLU Lex Luthor is probably my favorite adaptation of a villain. The chemistry was fantastic, especially between Giganta and Bizarro. haha

    I'm really not that knowledgeable about DC, so I'm going to be watching this thread!

    BEST: Secret Six

    WORST: I dunno. All other villain groups pale in comparison to the awesomeness of the Secret Six.

    The Best: The Fatal Five, the Legion of Doom, Secret Six are my default answers but while not a traditional team but probably the best ever is the Sinestro-5 (the crew Sinestro assembled for the Sinestro Corps War might be the greatest gathering of villains ever because each member was all by their lonesome the main baddy of a major DC storyline, Sinestro: Green Lantern Rebirth, Cyborg Superman: Reign of the Supermen, Parallax: Emerald Twilight, Superboy Prime: Infinite Crisis and the Anti-Monitor Crisis on Infinite Earths along with a group of members of the Sinestro Corps.) Oh and the Great Darkness bunch silly name but Darkseid backed by corrupted versions of Orion, Superman, and a Guardian of the Universe all backed up by a planet full of mind controlled Daxamites. Talk about tall odds I guess that is why the Great Darkness Saga and the Sinestro Corps War are two of my all time favorite comic tales period. Can't think of ones I enjoyed more off the top of my head (maybe Crisis on Infinite Earths).

    Best DC Super-villain group in any medium? That's easy.

    "The Light".

    Lex Luthor. Ras al Ghul. Vandal Savage. Just for starters. YOUNG JUSTICE knew how to use its villians.

    If they ever brought a similar themed group into the main DCU comics, I hope the roster goes like

    Vandal Savage, Ras al Ghul, Paula von Gunther, Thaddeus Sivana, Slade Wilson, and Lex Luthor.

    Hmmm ... still need an Aquaverse rep and a Lanternverse rep to complete the solo franchises, but they have to be pretty much human (long-lived and/or comic book peak human is fine).

    Any suggestions?

    This is absolutely my answer.

    The Light has to be the single best team of villains in any DC medium.

    I don't think that any of GL's villains would really work with the Light, but then again they've had dealings with Darkseid. I doubt he'd be part of their ranks, but I can definitely see Thaal Sinestro having dealings with them. The addition of Paula Von Gunther would be a good one, but I don't think Dr. Sivana makes sense- he's too cartoony. As for Aquaman, Black Manta worked just fine in the show, so I can't imagine why he couldn't still be in the comics- unless he's dead or something and I don't know about it! I don't follow Aquaman.

    The Elite have always been cool to me, if we're counting not just villains but antiheroes as well. I'm excited to see where they take the "New" Elite in Superman.

    I would also say that the League of Assassins is among the best groups of villains in the DCU, if only because of so many different characters from across franchises have been linked to it in some way.
    Favorite Mythologies: Green Lantern, Batman (pre-Flashpoint), Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, the Justice League/JLA (pre-Flashpoint)

    DC Pulls - Action Comics; Batman; Hal Jordan & the GLC; Superman; Wonder Woman

    Marvel Pulls - Captain America: Steve Rogers; The Mighty Thor

    Non-Big Two Pulls - Saga; Archie

    The original Legion of Doom(from the Super Friends) is still the best IMO.

    Currently Reading: Aquaman, Batgirl & The Birds of Prey, Green Arrow. Hal Jordan & The Green Lantern Corps, Justice League of America, The Terrifics, Titans, Wonder Woman, & Wonder Woman '77.

    Great pick! YOUNG JUSTICE was well done.

    Unfortunately,I don't recognize one name for your team-who is Paula Von Gunther?

    Thanks!

    Paula von Gunther aka the Baroness is a villain from the Wonderverse. She is a Nazi who confronted Wonder Woman many times during the Golden Age and on the 1970s WW tv show starring Lynda Carter.

    She has no metahuman powers, other than maybe being long-lived and not aging, which would put her right in with Ras and Vandal.
