There are enough great DC supervillains to fill Belle Reve Prison several times over, so we've asked ComicsAlliance contributors Benito Cereno, Elle Collins, Chris Haley, Emma Lawson, Kieran Shiach, and Tom Speelman to compete in putting together their very best fantasy DC supervillain teams.
In part one, several of the publisher's most iconic villains were snapped up, including Lex Luthor, Catwoman, Doomsday, and Darkseid, and Benito locked in two of DC's greatest apes in Gorilla Grodd and Monsieur Mallah. With some of the most obvious choices out of the way, where will our panelists look next?
The Suicide Squad movie has brought some of DC's weirdest villains to the big screen even before some of the publisher's major heroes could make their debut, and judging by the movie's huge opening weekend, audiences are only too happy to meet the bad guys.
Of course, there are enough great DC supervillains to fill Belle Reve Prison several times over; many more than we might ever meet at the movie theatre. So for ComicsAlliance's third fantasy superteam draft, following on from our fantasy X-Men teams and our fantasy LGBTQ teams, we've asked our contributors to fight it out to put together the best DC supervillain teams, drawing only from the main line DC comics continuities.

In general, it's the comic book heroes who are held up as romantic prospects. Their noble quests, taut abs, and forthright expressions make them the most eligible non-vampire fictional characters. They also have personal lives designed to garner sympathy; they'll relate on-panel to relatives, friends, partners or just people in the street in ways that show us that beneath their rough exterior, they're good people. If only someone could reach them! Add to this the inevitable holiday issues in which they give presents to orphans or save puppies, and readers will ignore the much more romantically suitable element of the average comic book: Supervillains.
Cinematical reports today that the spec script for "Supermax," a horror film about a prison for people with creepy powers, has been sold to Columbia Pictures -- which also recently bought "Super Max," a vehicle for DC hero Green Arrow that similarly deposited him in a prison filled with DC supervillains...
People think jerks always get the girl (or guy), but as Joss Whedon's Emmy darling "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog" showed the world, super villains don't generally have the easiest time hooking up.
Thankfully for lovelorn would-be-world-conquerors, Asylum has tracked down some personal ads that prove Craigslist may be a villain's most viable option for connecting with that super special someone...
