If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.
Good guys team up for unity and power to achieve the greater good in superhero comics all the time. Superhero teams are one of the surest and most frequent tropes in cape comics, both mainstream, independent, and small press. Bad guys, on the other hand, are perhaps a little less likely to trust each other enough to form some kind of...squad? But that doesn't mean there isn't still a host of cool supervillain teams worth our time and attention. This cool list of cool stuff is here to count down and celebrate the best of the baddest.
