DC Comics has created some of the most twisted and complex villainous characters in the world of comics. The third installment in the popular 100 Greatest Moments of DC Comics series, DC Comics Super-Villains features the pivotal acts that shaped the characters of 74 of these bad guys in over 200 pages of art. Every hero needs a villain. In fighting them, the extreme superiority of our heroes is revealed. The methods and morals of villains are usually the key difference between them and the heroes. Batman, for instance, is a vigilante who cleans up the streets while never stooping so low as to kill the deplorable criminals he battles. What makes him truly good is that he upholds these standards even when he's faced with a villain like the Joker, an entity that would arguably be better off dead. Many bad guys cause mayhem for mayhem's sake, with sometimes no apparent reason other than simply being bad. What makes a villain great, however, is the complexity of their character. The truly terrible villains of DC Comics have depths of cruelty that grow with them, and specific motivations driving them. In these pages, you will see these super-villains at the peak of their achievements; committing heinous acts of death and destruction, all to achieve a specific goal. They challenge the heroes and their ideals, seeing the caped and cowled figures as obstacles to be overcome. Compiled by several groups of hardcore fans, these 100 moments are the greatest (worst?) villainous acts in DC Comic book history. A summary of each super-villain brings new fans up to speed, from their origins to their most dastardly revivals. It's a great starting point for new readers or a nostalgic look for hardcore fans through the villains old and new.

In the hands of dozens of writers and artists, DC Comics Justice League of America (JLA) has experienced moments that can be intensely personal or of great cosmic importance. The comic's ability to shift in tone has always kept the team interesting and reflects the changing tastes among the readers and the times when each moment occurred. The Justice League, the team also known as the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes, have flowered and foundered, seen their ranks swell and shrink, and risen and fallen in sales popularity, but remaining a fixture in pop cultures for decades. What you will see on the pages that follow are one hundred of the greatest moments, each one a piece of the mosaic that is the Justice League. From their first rallying issue to the League finally reaching the big screen in the 2017 feature film Justice League, the members and their stories has remained entertaining for readers and watchers . The selections of iconic comic moments to come were not chosen in a vacuum. Moments chosen consist of nominations from various Facebook fan groups as well as former JLA scribes Mark Waid, Kurt Busiek, J.M. DeMatteis, Bob Rozakis, Gerry Conway, Marv Wolfman and former DC editors Michael Eury and KC Carlson. Ace researcher and comics historian John Wells and current JLA editor Brian Cunningham also offered input on the most contemporary selections.
