List Rules Vote up your favorite heroes and their doppelgangers, evil twins, and alternate reality versions of themselves.

Doppelgangers and evil twins have been a superhero staple for years. Often times, comic book publishers have the evil twins or doppelgangers coming from an alternate universe or coming to life after cloning the heroes. In other cases, superheroes and their evil counterparts have met before, either as rivals or past mentors, and are both seeking revenge.

Our list of superhero doppelgangers consists of previous mentors, rivals, clones, alternate versions, and more. We have to admit, although we want to root for the best superheroes, a few of these evil doppelgangers are pretty amazing. Who is your favorite evil twin, doppelganger, or rival in the comic books?

Vote up your favorite superheroes and their evil counterparts to see which duo is the most popular.
