List Rules Vote up the villains you love seeing the Justice League go up against!

The original members of the Justice League have been a part of the DC universe for some time now, but it wasn't until 1960 that they formed the team. Since then, the roster constantly changes, usually including Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, and they are always faced by some of the deadliest baddies in comics. 

Who are the greatest Justice League foes? Is the heartless Vandal Savage your favorite baddie, or do you prefer the ruler of Apokolips himself, Darkseid?

Make sure to vote up all your favorite Justice League villains, and vote down the ones you think aren't worth their time. Don't see the villain you love to hate on this list? Be sure to add them!
