I agree with most of your choices. Amazo should remain a JLA-As-A-Whole villain in my opinion. Im not fond of Indigo but I guess she could work. I'd probably put Giganta over Silver Swan since She is more well known

I still don't get the logic of amazo being cyborg's villain.

@Death Certificate: You need to read the back up material is Justice League issue 4 (or is that 3?) to understand.

@Death Certificate: Similar to Mr. Orr. Basically, Cyborg tech leads to Amazo or something along those lines. Professor Ivo is a part of the lab where Vic's dad works in the new 52.

since when are Vandall Savage and Solomon Grundy Green Lantern rogues?

@SUNMAN: Vandal Savage since his first appearance in 1943. Solomon Grundy since 1944. Both were villains for Alan Scott, in the forties. And I was really having trouble getting Green Lantern villains that werent just crossover villains, like Nekron or Krona.

Fact Check:

Cyborg does have rogues. Like the Cyborg Revenge Squad, The Phantom Limbs, Mr. Orr, and Equus in the pre-Flashpoint comics. In the cartoons, he had Brother Blood, Gizmo, Atlas, and Adonis. In the New 52, Justice League issue 4's backup material heavily implies that Ivo and Morrow will be his enemies.

Darkseid is a New Gods villain who became a DC Universe villain. He's not a Superman villain because he's in a couple of Superman stories.

He's in a ton of Superman stories, and whenever the Justice League fights him, its pretty clear who is considered his rival. Even the end of the JLA arc was a showdown between Supes and Darkseid. So, so much for that.

I know Cyborg has villains, he couldnt be a comic book character without somebody to fight, but he doesnt have very iconic villains. I thought of Brother Blood as a Teen Titans villain, but if he counts here, id say he is my favorite.

I think people saying "Amazo" for Cyborg or Anti-Monitor for Green Lantern is a little worse then anything ive mentioned here.

"Fact Check" LoL
