‘My Adventures with Superman’ is interesting because, in every episode, we meet various villains that loom around Metropolis, each with their own agenda. However, with the emergence of Superman, who tries to prevent them from gaining control of the city, they gain a common enemy in him, and some of them decide to join forces and bring him down. Let’s see who are all the villains in the show so far and how they are connected.
Badger is a part of Livewire’s gang that deals with stolen high-tech weapons. He is more of a sidekick than the main villain but still dangerous. Badger helped Livewire steal the high-tech robots in the first episode, and those robots were the first thing Clark had to face on the field.
2. Leslie Wills/Livewire
Livewire is the first villain that appeared in the series. She steals high-tech weapons and hires many mercenaries to help her sell them to the highest bidder. Besides weapons, she also steals military robots. She also planted explosives across the city, and she is extremely dangerous due to her ability of electrokinesis, as she can absorb and project electrical energy.
3. Slade Wilson/Deathstroke
Deathstroke first appears in the second episode of the series and meets with Livewire. He eventually captures her, interrogates her about all the parties she sold the weapons to, and wants to know everything she knows about Superman. It is later revealed that he works for Amanda Waller and The General. They send him on missions, and he is very dangerous because of his skills and the high-tech suits and gadgets that his organization possesses.
4. Siobhan McDougal/Silver Banshee
Silver Banshee is the central villain in the third episode of the series. She spent her time in jail, always discussing how she would be a big deal one day. She always wanted to be a respected and powerful criminal. When other Intergang members busted her out of jail and gave her a high-tech suit, she became more dangerous than ever. Her crew also possessed a powerful weapon that could freeze anything. Silver Banshee can project powerful sound waves thanks to her high-tech helmet.
5. Kyle/Mist and Albert/Rough House
Kyle and Albert are a part of Silver Banshee’s crew, Intergang, that busted her out of prison. They are small-time crooks that robbed convenience stores. However, when they gained high-tech weapons, they became more dangerous, even though it was clear that they were not professionals. They used the freezing machine to rob a bank, but Superman eventually stopped them.
6. Dr. Ivo/Parasite
Dr. Ivo founded Amazo Tech, a company that produces high-tech gadgets. However, his work was filled with corruption and criminal activities, his company was in debt, and the board wanted him out. As his ultimate way to succeed and show everyone who he is, Dr. Ivo invented a suit called ”Parasite 1.0” The suit gave Dr.Ivo superhuman strength, speed, and durability, and his goal was to defeat Superman with it so he could sell those kinds of suits and make a significant profit. Man of Steel defeated him in the end.
7. Heat Wave
Heat Wave appears in the fifth episode of the series. And even though we are used to seeing Heat Wave as a man named Mick Rory in other iterations, this time, Heat Wave is a female-voiced by Laila Berzins. The character also has a powerful suit that enables her to blast powerful fire attacks from the suit.
8. Monsieur Mallah and The Brain
Monsieur Mallah is a super-intelligent gorilla that appears in the sixth episode of the series. He, alongside The Brain, is located in Cadmus, known as Area 52. Twenty years ago, Monsieur Mallah and The Brain, alongside the military division Task Force X, were given strange technology to make weapons.
The Brain was once a young scientist who lost his body in a black hole explosion after he and Monsieur Mallah refused to create weapons but used technology to better the world. The only thing left of him was his brain. Even though they initially wanted to kill Jimmy Olsen, they decided to share their life story with him instead.
Who are the main villains in ‘My Adventures with Superman’?
Everything that happened in the first season, Limewire stealing high-tech weapons and distributing them to other parties, many villains using that technology for their own agenda and eventually fighting Superman because of it, all connected to one organization – The Task Force X.
This organization started developing powerful weapons in Cadmus years ago, and The General led it. And even though he assures everyone that he operates how he does to keep the Earth safe, his narrow-minded viewpoint makes him the main villain in the series, especially because he wants to kill Superman. In his eyes, Man of Steel is the greatest threat that Earth faces at the moment, and he won’t stop until he sees the superhero gone.
By The General’s side, there is also Amanda Waller; in some instances, she leaves an impression of being even more ruthless than The General. Superman is still a threat in their eyes since his presence on Earth has been only revealed recently, but it is possible that in the future, Amanda Waller and Superman will find a way how to work together.
