WHY SO SERIOUS? This quiz will be more fun than you think! When you think of your favorite superhero, there are tons of villains always trying to cause chaos and take them down. From the Joker to Loki, how many fictional supervillains can you identify?

While it might be easy to recognize Superman and Batman, could you recognize all of their foes?

There are tons of supervillains out there. Can you recognize them all?

Will you save the day with this quiz or will you fall victim to these villains? Let's find out!
