Batman, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman, the list of quality characters goes on. DC Comics has a TON of amazing characters, but if we take a closer look at this huge universe, we can find some pretty odd ones. So, to celebrate these weird and wonderful characters, I've compiled a list of the top ten weirdest villains in the entire DC universe! If you want to read some more of my Top Ten Weirdest (insert topic here) lists, I have also covered the weirdest Marvel villains, Marvel heroes and DC heroes.
Now, just so y'all are clear, this is a list of the WEIRDEST characters, not of the weakest, lamest, or worst characters. There are lots of really powerful, awesome, or successful characters that are also pretty weird. Alrighty then, you ready? Good! Let's go then! First up, we have...
Whether it be an old-fashioned gumball machine or a gorilla holding its brain in its hand Ood-style, Brain can place his brain and consciousness into different forms.
Little is known about the Brain, not even his name. He was a French scientist who experimented on a gorilla, giving it extreme intelligence. When the scientist died, the gorilla put the brain into the machine that "brought him back to life". He is now more of an annoyance to superheroes than a threat.
This guy made it onto my list because not only is his name really dumb (I mean "the Brain"? Seriously? You couldn't have come up with anything better DC?) but he's just pretty pathetic as well. Plus, all of his bodies are really...um....weird.
9. ...... aka Lump!!!!
This nameless, mindless mass of a creature has no name, but has been given the nickname The Lump. No one really knows where he came from, or what his purpose is, but he is a very powerful force to be reckoned with, seeing as how he can mold his body into any shape he imagines, making his entire body a weapon!
This character also has a weird name. nuf said
8. Doctor Psycho!!!
Who did you say Wonder Woman's worst nightmare was? Well if you said a three foot little dude in a suit, then you're absolutely right!!! To be fair, he is three feet and nine inches, but still.
Doc. Psycho tortures people through nightmares he projects into people's unconscious minds. He causes extreme fear and despair whose effects last even when the victim wakes.
This little guy made this list due to his appearance, being mostly head, and his oh so fitting name.
7. Clock King!!!!
Now, there are a couple different versions of the Clock King that have popped up during this character's time. (Get it? Time? I give up) The version I'm talking about here is the classic Clock-helmeted criminal we all know and make fun of.
Clock King has no meta-human abilities, but his bizarre obsession with clocks and time in general has made him a fairly successful criminal, timing his robberies down to the last second.
While he's clearly got an excellent gift for crime, his gift for fashion is clearly lacking.
When you were growing up, did you ever spin around as fast as you could until you fell? Well so did Roscoe Dillon and he continues to do so to this very day!
Very similar to MARVEL's very own Human Top aka Whirlwind, Top can spin himself at intense speeds turning himself into a powerful tornado. It may be an effective skill at times, but there aren't many superpowers stranger than twirling around like a ballerina on steroids.
A few fun facts: at one point the Top's soul possessed the body of Flash's dad. He also has the ability to induce vertigo in his enemies, making them extremely disoriented. This power gives him a few more "cool" points, keeping him in the less weird half of this list.
5. Hector Hammond!!!
"Nothing could be stranger looking than that big-headed Doctor Psycho." Well random person, you're wrong! Meet Hector, one of the smartest and strongest user of telepathy the world has ever seen!!
If that picture alone doesn't justify his presence in this list, then just watch Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern movie. If you're not convinced even then, you need to reevaluate...badly.
Yes, he is possibly the most powerful telepaths in existence, but he's also one of the weirdest looking ones as well.
4. Folded Man!!!!
Edwin Gauss may have found the most effective weight-loss strategy ever! You just have to become two-dimesional!
Edwin can also transform into a four-dimensional form which allows him teleport across the dimensions with ease, but he is named for his more common form, the 2D one.
With a name like Folded Man, you know you're destined to be on lists like these.
Ever had a fan that was so incredibly pushy, persistent, and annoying that you just wanted to spit? I haven't, but this little imp is the very essence of such a fan.
Everyone loves Batman, but no one quite as much as Bat-Mite. He has incredible magic powers that allow him to do just about anything he wants, but he chooses to use his abilities to test those of the Dark Knight. He puts Batman in all sorts of situations to test his skills, usually putting multiple people in danger in the process, making him a weird type of villain.
This tiny character is so bizarre and ridiculous that I couldn't help but put him in third place.
2. Gorgeous Gilly!!!
That, um....thing....is not I repeat NOT, under any circumstances, gorgeous! I don't care what her name is, that thing is hideous!!! Gilly is from a family of Meta-humans called the Rednex. Basically, they're a bunch of red necks with superpowers. I know.
As you can probably deduce, she can seduce. (Catch the rhyme there?) She has crazy seduction powers, making any males in her presence her servants. (another rhyme attempt...I'll stop)
And before we get to our number one weirdest villain of all time, here are a few honorable mentions.
The guy with the backwards head who uses mirrored glasses to see in front of him. I'm not even sure how that would work! Wouldn't he just see the reflection of his eyes? I dunno.
The Demolition Team.
Including Steamroller (he drives a steamroller), Scoopshovel (has a dumb shovel arm), Hardhat (wears a ridiculous helmet thingy), and more!!!!!!!
Get it? Because he...stomps... Oh man DC, now you're making up words...
The weirdest one of them all....
1. Star Conqueror!!!
Ok. So it's like this is one of the animals that Target rejected for its mascot! They had to choose between a dog with a target on its eye, or a starfish with a target on its eye. Thankfully they settled on the former rather than the latter! This rejection drove Star Conqueror crazy and he became a super villain. Ok. Not really.
In all seriousness though, he is a very odd duck, or starfish rather, but is quite a threat. He is determined to conquer the entire universe (thus the name) and has some mind control abilities, can fire destructive blasts of energy called fire force, and also has a nasty habit of launching out these probe things that look like a cross between a small starfish and a frog’s foot. These probes latch onto people’s faces which turns them into mindless zombie slaves for Star Conqueror.
I’ve placed this character in the number one position simply because it is a giant starfish. And the entire Justice League has such a hard time with this piece of overgrown sushi!
Well, what do you think? Do you think this list is fairly accurate? And are there any other superhero-based Top Ten lists you wanna see? Let me know down below! Thanks for reading!
