The ability to go back in time as one of the fastest men alive helped the Reverse Flash destroy the life and childhood of Barry Allen. The power to kill others with the speed of his hand helped him cause chaos and terror for those around him. The Reverse Flash is also one of the smartest villains in the DCEU, making him all the more dangerous to be around since super speed combined with intelligence makes for a powerful supervillain.

9. Circe

Circe has the intense ability to manipulate reality and change what people see. She was even able to shift Wonder Woman back into the original clay form that she originated from. Being immortal while having the skillset to resurrect someone back from the dead makes Circe one of the most powerful and magical people within the DCEU.

8. Ares

Ares, the God of War, is one of the most daunting gods in the entire universe. He’s immortal and can travel easily across dimensions –– something that’s not as easy as it might sound. When fighting, Ares can summon pure darkness against those who dare to challenge him. He’s also a nemesis of Wonder Woman, meaning that Wonder Woman has quite the task of trying to keep him in check.

7. Eclipso

Wielding the Heart of Darkness means Eclipso is one of the most powerful beings around. It allows him to gain access to the minds (and even the powers) of those who dare come near him. Eclipso is seemingly the most dangerous one-man army to ever exist. Eclipso was created as an image of God’s wrath, meaning he can manipulate reality and seemingly do whatever he feels like doing at any point in time.

6. Parallax

The Green Lantern always has his hands full when he’s matched up against Parallax. The supervillain is able to decode what someone’s biggest fear is, and then use those fears in demonic and terrifying ways against them. Not only has Parallax been able to do this against Green Lantern, but he has also been able to do it against the likes of Wonder Woman and Superman. He holds his ground against some of the most powerful superheroes within the DCEU. Being immortal is a common theme among the strongest and most powerful villains, and Parallax is no different from the rest.

5. The Joker

The ability to incite fear and panic amongst citizens when you don’t even have any superpowers is one of the most intense things a villain can do. This is what the Joker has been able to achieve throughout his existence. Whether he’s robbing banks, threatening to blow up ships of people, or just creating chaos however he sees fit, the Joker makes people dread him. Batman is the main hero who goes out of his way to handle the Joker.

4. Doomsday

When comic book lovers think about powerful heroes and villains, they might automatically think about superstrength first. This is what Doomsday possesses, to the point that he was actually able to defeat Superman in a certain battle. The strength it takes to beat Superman is almost unthinkable, yet Doomsday was the one who was able to successfully pull it off. Doomsday is also able to heal himself on the fly, making him invincible also. He never needs to take a break or pause for recovery, which makes him an almost impossible villain to beat.

3. Darkseid

Darkseid is one of the most unstoppable villains in the DCEU. He is invincible and invulnerable, while also in charge of an incredibly large army with some of the most advanced technology around. Darkseid is able able to shoot laser beams out of his eyes in the midst of battle. The only fear he has is Yuga Khan, his father.

2. Superboy-Prime

Imagine taking all of the powers of Superman and handing them to a villain. That’s essentially exactly what happened with Superboy-Prime. He has all the powers Superman has, with some more to make things worse. He can alter reality however he sees fit, and he also has a suit of armor that can enhance his powers. His abilities paired with his evil outlook on the world make him one of the most dangerous supervillains there is.

1. Anti-Monitor

The Anti-Monitor has the ability to destroy more than one universe at a time, something that DCEU fans saw in Crisis on Infinite Earths. The chaotic scenario forced everyone into one universe as opposed to the many infinite universes that were originally out there. The Anti-Monitor is also in control of one of the most powerful armies in existence, making him seemingly unstoppable. With the ability to control energy, matter, and reality, he’s basically able to control anything and everything in existence. For these reasons, he’s arguably the most powerful DCEU villain of all.
