|This category contains a list of every character of a negative alignment that can be found on the DC Database. Bad characters are generally on the wrong side of the law, or work against the greater good of humanity. Though not necessarily evil, bad characters almost always operate for the sake of personal gain at the expense or sacrifice of others. Collectively, they are also referred to as "super-villains". This category includes characters ranging from street-level thugs like Joe Chill, to intergalactic despots of the highest order such as Darkseid.
