Fair use rationale for Image:Odeadlydarkseid.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Odeadlydarkseid.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Fatal Five[edit]

Black Zero[edit]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Zero

"The original Black Zero appeared pre-Crisis in Superman (vol. 1) #205 (1968), in a story entitled "The Man Who Destroyed Krypton" written by Otto Binder with artwork by Al Plastino. This Black Zero revealed to Superman that he was a space saboteur who destroyed planets. He had been hired to destroy Krypton, and discovered that the internal stresses which would have destroyed it in any case were dying down, necessitating his involvement to ensure it exploded.

In the present day, Black Zero came to Earth, threatening to destroy it as he did Krypton. In desperation, Superman released Jax-Ur, a prisoner of the Phantom Zone, who wished to avenge Krypton's destruction. As he launched a devastatingly powerful missile toward Earth, Black Zero attacked Jax-Ur with a red Kryptonite bullet, causing his body to mutate wildly into several serpent-like forms. This proved to be Black Zero's undoing; While Superman saved the Earth from the missile, Jax-Ur transformed into a Medusa-like form, turning Black Zero to stone with his gaze. Black Zero's body was then shattered by Jax-Ur, in recompense for what he had done to Krypton.

This story suggests that were it not for something none of them knew, Jor-El would have been wrong and the Science Council right. E. Nelson Bridwell hypothesized that what Black Zero had noticed was the Green Lantern Tomar Re's attempts to prevent the destruction (as seen in Superman (vol. 1) #257 (1972)), meaning the two sets of interference canceled each other out, and Jor-El was right."

Images in List?[edit]

Should Images be portrayed in this list? It may help more easily identify the villain. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NK97 (talkcontribs) 15:08, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

Adding section for Group Villains[edit]

I am planning on adding a new section specifically for Group Villains (much akin to List of Spider-Man enemies#Group villains and List of Batman Family adversaries#Teams) but first I need to make sure the consensus will allow me to do so. This would involve removing all groups of enemies (such as the Superman Revenge Squad, Black Zero, ETC) from the section they are currently in and putting them in a new section for villain groups. Do any editors object?

New Column[edit]

I suggest having a column simply stating whether the villain was vanquished in their story or is an ongoing threat to Superman. This would help people find what they are interested in.

I see where you are coming from but I oppose this is because villains who die in comic books can always be resurrected at any given moment or be brought back after a continuity relaunch, so I don't think having the section would work because any character (no matter how dead or obscure) can instantly become an ongoing character. I also think that deciding the criteria for who is and isn't an ongoing character could be a bit too complicated, as we would have to decide a year cut-off date (what's the least amount of years the character would have to go without making an appearance to fit the criteria?), decide whether characters that have appeared in several stories but none recent fit the criteria, ETC.

I am curious where the name Karnowsky for Barrage originates. Action Comics #736 gives his name as Paul Rooney. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 142.162.115.7 (talk) 08:22, 13 August 2017 (UTC)

Villainess that should be included[edit]

Shouldn't Hi-Tech be in here as well, in "Foes of lesser renown"?Malcolmlucascollins (talk) 21:24, 2 June 2018 (UTC)

Too many minor villains[edit]

Some of the villains listed here have made very few appearances and are virtually unknown. Should they be included? I'm going to delete some. Kurzon (talk) 20:23, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
