5 Underrated DC Characters Who Could BEAT Superman

Nathan has put together a list of lesser-known characters in the DC universe that he thinks could beat Superman. I agree with his list, do you?CreditsWritten…



Parallax is the entity living inside the Yellow Lantern Central Power Battery, the living embodiment of Fear. Of all the entities, it most often inhabits a host, most famously Hal Jordan.

“A yellow entity that was made of living fear. It created terror into anything it came in contact with. Caused entire civilizations to destroy themselves out of paranoia. Their fear was eaten by this creature. And that creature was called Parallax,” – Green Lantern



Lucifer is continuously described as a celestial being of incalculable power due to his dominion over the very substance and knowledge of the formation of Creation. He has been cited as one of the most powerful characters in the DC Multiverse. Through this understanding, Lucifer can shape the matter and foundation of the creation into anything he can imagine, including matter, energy and more abstract concepts, such as time. He once shaped Big Bang energies released by the death of his brother Michael into a new universe.



The Spectre has all the abilities of God, including, but not limited to, manipulation of time and space, manipulation of matter and energy, invulnerability, limitless strength, and reality alteration. Virtually anything he wishes to do to those he judges is possible. He has no discernible weakness other than needing a human host to be able to be a fair and impartial judge, although he has been tricked before by the Psycho-Pirate and Eclipso.


Doctor Manhattan

Jon is the only character in Watchmen to possess superpowers. Throughout Watchmen, he is shown to be absolutely powerful and invulnerable to all harm; even when his body is disintegrated, he can reconstruct it in a matter of seconds and remains unharmed. He is capable of altering his size depending on his needs, for example, reconstructing himself in a much bigger form. He can hurl huge objects effortlessly with his hands. He is also unable to exhaust himself. Jon has complete awareness of and control over atomic and subatomic particles. He is also an omnikinetic. He does not need air, water, food, or sleep, and is immortal. He can teleport himself and others over limitless distances. He is also capable of true flight, although he uses only levitation in most of his appearances. Due to his perception of time, he sees his past, present, and future simultaneously.



He has powers identical to that of Mr. Mxyzptlk, with the power to manipulate space and time, though he uses his powers for “heroic” deeds as opposed to Mxyzptlk’s chaos. Ironically, this ends up either making a situation worse or creating a whole new problem.
