WORLD'S FIRST SUPERVILLAIN
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was the world's first supervillain?

It's a fine line between being a villain and a supervillian but we dug up a definition for you as well as several evil candidates for the title of the world's first supervillain.

A supervillain is a variant of the villain character type common, often found in comic books and action and science fiction films. Supervillains often have colorful names and costume and/or other eccentricities and most concoct complex and ambitious schemes to accumulate vast power and suppress their adversaries.

One candidate as the world's first supervillain is John Devil, created by Paul Henri Corentin Féval in 1862.

Next we have Professor Moriarty, the arch enemy of detective Sherlock Holmes, introduced by Arthur Conan Doyle’s in 1891.

Candidate #3 is Lightning, from the 1938 film Fighting Devil Dogs. At the very least Lightning is the first supervillain to wear a crazy costume.

Finally we have Ultra-Humanite who first appeared in Action Comics #13 in 1939 and was the first comic book super villain.
