Frieza because he seems more in his weight class and his story of destroying planet Vegeta seems similar to many of Krypton's stories. Doctor Doom could also be a good villain because he's kinda similar to Lex. Don't know who the hell Gotham Man is.

@takenstew22: Gotham Man was in the Batman 2017 or 2018 comic who became insane due Psycho Pirate and destroyed the Justice League

Gotham Man is a terrible King OC. Frieza would just get the Phantom Zone treatment and Superman wouldn't let him go because he's not a fighting obsessed lunatic. Doom is the most interesting because Superman would have to deal with international politics when dealing with a madman like Doom.

Freiza will be an epic villain.

Frieza. He is irredeemably evil. Practically Superman's Anti-thesis.

Frieza would fit to a degree.

What about Kryptonite Man?

Frieza is an alien that enslaves and destroys several civilizations (like Brainiac) AND a corrupt, sociopathic businessman (like Lex). He'd be a great Superman villain.

Dr. Doom could work quite well, Frieza is from a verse that follows quite different rules than the DCverse and Gotham Man is lame.

Frieza. He's everything Superman lives to fight against

Dr.Doom with prep would absolutely decimate him, and Gotham Man would do the same without prep

@itouchedtheboat: Unless Gotham has reappeared in King's run (which I dropped on #6 and only read a couple other issues later on), the fight ends like it already did: Gotham wins and immediately dies from the effort. So he doesn't really win.

Someone who doesn’t constantly get Kryptonite out of f**king nowhere.

well he died because he wasn't just fighting Superman, he was fighting the entire league, it only took Gotham man one or two punches to take out Superman. And I agree King's run is so God awful! I keep dropping it and picking it back up hoping it gets better but...nope!

King is just a bad writer in general, it's so mind blowing how DC is trusting him with so many titles including a whole movie surrounding the New Gods...
