If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week, to kick off a special month of coverage looking at comics' finest villains, we're taking a look at Superman and the less frequently explored corners of his rogues' gallery. With over seventy-five years and thousands of issues of publication history, Superman has encountered a lot of bad guys. So why do writers keep going back to the well-trod ground of Luthor, Zod, and Brainiac? This video offers some characters who have perhaps not gotten their due time in the spotlight.
