DC Universe is home to many of the most popular and strongest characters in comic history. There are so many characters with the power of god, you name it Superman & Wonderwoman.
This is one of the big differences between DC and Marvel. Many people think that DC prefers characters that are like gods, while Marvel goes deeper into the character’s humanist side.
Like Marvel, the characters in DC don’t just come from the earth. Some are from other planets, even other galaxies.
Of the many characters in the DC Universe, I’ve chosen 6 characters, both villains and heroes, the most powerful in the DC Universe.
If you think Superman and Wonderwoman are strong enough, think again!
Orion is one of the super villains at DC Universe. This character is a child of Darkseid, one of the strongest characters in the DC Universe.
Its strength does not need to be doubted. Because of its strength, Orion can tear apart the Green Lantern Corps which has more than 7,000 members.
Besides being strong, it turns out that Orion is a god. He has superhuman strength and cannot die a.k.a immortal.
If we had discussed his son (Orion), now is the time to discuss the father, Darkseid. We can say, Darkseid is a version of the DC Universe Thanos.
Darkseid is the reason why Superman and Batman gather other superheroes and form the Justice League.
Just imagine, the Justice League, which consists of many superheroes, cannot defeat this demigod character.
3. The Presence
The Presence is the most powerful character in the universal version of the DC Universe. This character is the creator of everything.
Although there are many gods from the DC Universe, the majority are gods from ancient Greek mythology such as Zeus. The Presence is the Christian version of the DC Universe.
In addition to having the power to create everything, The Presence is able to raise the dead. He is also an immortal creature.
Anti-Monitor is the main villain in the Crisis on Infinite Earth comic series that was published in 1985. This villain even almost destroyed the universe, you know.
It takes collaboration between hundreds of superheroes to defeat this one character. Although the Anti-Monitor can eventually be defeated, many superheroes are victims.
Some of the superheroes killed in the comic are Nighthawk, Robin, Dove, Green Arrow, and many more
5. Mr. Mxyzptlk
It’s really hard to say his name, huh? Mr. Mxyzptlk is one of the strongest characters in the DC Universe, despite its dwarf-like appearance.
Mr. Mxyzptlk is a character who likes to cheat and make fun of others, especially Superman. He is able to create illusions that change reality.
In addition, he can teleport and also live forever. The only way to defeat him is to complete the puzzle he made.
6. The Guardians of The Universe
The Guardians of The Universe is a collection of extraterrestrials who founded the Green Lantern Corps. They are willing to do anything for the sake of creating peace in the universe.
Although it does not have a body with super powers, but The Guardians of The Universe have a level of brainpower above all creatures.
In fact, one of their members named Guardian Ganthet was able to split a planet only by the power of his mind.
