Earth’s Mightiest Heroes might have finally met their match. Welcome to WatchMojo, and today we’re counting down Another Top 10 Stupidly Overpowered Supervillains.

For this list, we’re once again looking at supervillains so ridiculously overpowered that they’d give even the strongest heroes a run for their money. If there’s someone you think is missing, be sure to check out our original list.

#10: Venom


The arch-villain turned hero turned occasional villain again may not seem particularly OP, but we’d ask you to consider one thing: his adaptability. Thanks to his ability to bond with a variety of hosts, including ones with superhuman abilities, this inky black baddie has a potentially endless variety of tricks up his sleeve. Add in the symbiote’s natural ability to shapeshift into a staggering number of tools and you’ve got a villain who ready for almost any hero you throw at him. Sure, he’s also critically weak to both fire and sonic-based attacks, but don’t let those Achilles’ Heels trick you into underestimating this deadly being.

#9: Korvac


This villain’s story is long and involved, so it’s fitting that it’s known as the Korvac Saga. Beginning as a lowly human worker from the distant future, he was first turned into a cyborg and then imbued with massive amounts of cosmic power, turning a humble laborer into something approaching a god. The notorious villain could only be opposed by the combined might of the Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy when he arrived on modern-day Earth, and actually managed to outright kill most of them. Just before his death, he brought the heroes back to life, proving his massive power levels even further. Not many villains can claim that kind of body count.

#8: Brainiac


His moniker may imply a villain who favors brains over brawn, but this longtime foe of the Man of Steel actually has both power and intelligence to spare. His origins have varied, but across the many DC Comics timelines, he’s always been depicted as a powerful alien android, one with near limitless intelligence and resources. His goal is often to collect and catalog all forms of life, preserving a few samples and destroying the rest, and it’s this drive that’s brought him to blows with Superman on many occasions. Plus, his spaceship looks like a giant robot skull with tentacles coming out of it. If that’s not a power move, what is?

#7: Onslaught


It’s often the case that enemies can get a whole lot done when they finally work together. But in this instance, that might not be a good thing. This hulking being was brought to life when a portion of Magneto’s psyche infiltrated the mind of Professor X, causing the X-Men’s leader to develop a dangerous split personality. This being, a combination of Magneto’s rage and hatred for humanity and Prof X’s massive psychic powers, eventually manifested as this gargantuan villain, whose psionic abilities allowed him to take down almost all the Marvel heroes in one climactic battle. It was even powerful enough to survive having its body destroyed, living on as a being of pure energy.

#6: Annihilus


With a massive army known as the Annihilation Wave under his control, this insectoid villain once broke into the Marvel Universe from his home dimension of The Negative Zone, kickstarting a war that nearly wiped out all known life. In addition to his army, the villain also wields the Cosmic Control Rod, a device that allows him to control matter, energy and even space itself. That means that he could reduce you to a pile of ash, transmute that ash into a tasteful statuette and then transport it into the heart of a star a few universes over. So seriously, don’t get on his bad side.

#5: The Void


We all have our dark sides, but thankfully none like this. The hero known as The Sentry was once one of the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe, a respected superhero with a heart of gold. But when a being emerged who appeared to be a dark inversion of the golden hero, the only way to keep it under control was to erase all memories of both the hero and his opposite number from the minds of everyone on Earth. That should say it all, really. This villain was such a threat that Earth had to sacrifice one of its greatest heroes just to keep it contained!

#4: Amazo


We talked a bit earlier about the power of versatility and adaptability, and few villains have those qualities like this one. He, or rather it, has the ability to replicate the superhuman powers of any hero or villain it encounters, which understandably makes it one of the deadliest foes of the Justice League. Originally created by the mad scientist Doctor Ivo, the first android and several other models with the same ability have occasionally battled the League, pushing the legendary heroes to their limit by throwing their powers back at them. But then, there was also that time Batman took one down by himself….because: Batman.

#3: The Marquis of Death


This imposing villain has the ability to warp all of reality, allowing him to change, reshape or outright destroy anything and everything he encounters, even on a universal scale. While he was originally imprisoned by the Reed Richards of his home dimension, he eventually escaped and went on a universal murder spree, by which we mean he destroyed numerous alternate realities before arriving in the mainline Marvel Universe. It’s pretty safe to say that no other villain has a body count like his, given that he’s destroyed an unknown number of universes, each one with a nigh-uncountable number of inhabitants. We’d ask how he sleeps at night but just look at the guy. He clearly hasn’t slept in eons.

#2: Mister Mxyzptlk


As if his name wasn’t bad enough, this interdimensional being is a frequent source of headaches for the Man of Steel. He may not look like much of a threat, but his mischievous nature and reality-altering powers make him a very dangerous and unpredictable foe. In some continuities, he can be temporarily banished back to his home in the fifth dimension by tricking him into saying his own name backward. This sounds pretty ridiculous, but honestly, it makes as much sense as anything else he does whenever he turns up.

#1: Trigon


We all get into fights with our parents from time to time, but look on the bright side: at least one of your parents isn’t an evil all-powerful demon from an alternate dimension. With a wide array of demonic abilities including eldritch energy blasts and a powerful magic staff, this enemy of the Teen Titans is as exactly as dangerous as he looks. It’s not all that surprising that he’s conquered numerous extra-dimensional civilizations, and completely wiped out the ones that refused to bend the knee. Basically, if he pays your dimension a visit, you’re in trouble.
