Heroes and villains without superpowers have their own special kind of appeal. DC Comics has many such characters - both criminals and defenders of justice. As it happens, these more commonly gifted individuals are some of their most popular heroes and bad guys , which once again proves DC's noticeable emphasis on realism. To most people, Oliver Queen is a popular billionaire politician but to the Justice League , he is mostly Green Arrow.
SOMETIMES IT’S GOOD TO BE BAD...
Over the years, DC Comics has found itself as a home for a more varied gamut of genres in its publishing catalog. Especially in the Silver Age, the publisher varied their titles to have a broad appeal. This attitude would pervade into the present day, although the iconic super-heroes would find a larger and larger role in the image of the company. What follows are just ten of the titles that DC published that broke the superhero mold. Some sprang from their world of super-heroes. Some would exist entirely on their own. Angel Love was a rather late entry for DC Comics in the romance genre.
DC may be home to some of the most iconic superheroes in the world, including Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman - but in recent years, it's their deadly villains that have ruled the day. Case-in-point, the current high-profile limited series Batman: The Three Jokers , which promises to unpack the mystery - or mysteries - of the Clown Prince of Crimes identities. With that on our minds, we're counting down the greatest DC villains of all time - and yeah, the Joker makes the list, but who else? He is simply a force of absolute destruction, driven by his very nature to destroy everything in his path, up to and including reality itself.
There are a lot of forms of creativity out there, and they will often pick up their own stereotypes and cliches. Comic books are no different. While comic books and the characters within can bring a lot of excitement out of people, they are also known for creating storylines that seem to twist and turn around each other, never letting the reader fully grasp onto them before they run off in a different direction.
