Who's Who in the Superman Comics

The Superman Revenge Squad

The Superman Revenge Squad is an alliance of super-villains who have - as the gang's name infers - a grudge against the Man of Steel. In pre-Crisis times, the Superman Revenge Squad was a coalition of intergalactic criminal masterminds. Utilizing advanced/alien technologies, this gang repeatedly challenged Superman, but was eventually defeated. Normally, there was never a stand-out member of the Revenge Squad, as it wasn't comprised of Superman's arch-enemies. The Superman Revenge Squad would distinguish itself by attacking our hero in unison, in a united effort to eliminate the Man of Tomorrow. One assemblage of the Revenge Squad tried to employ Eterno - an invincible, titanic android - in order to annihilate Superman. This plot ended in doom, as the Revenge Squad was wiped out, unable to control Eterno. Another formation of the Superman Revenge Squad attacked both Superman and Batman, as it united with the Batman Revenge Squad. This incarnation of the SRS appeared in bald heads, possibly to honor Lex Luthor; and wore rogue versions of the Superman costume, with the S-shield made out of kryptonite, so that Superman wouldn't be able to harm the individual members. Despite the flamboyant fatigues, the SRS and the BRS met defeat.

In post-Crisis continuity, Morgan Edge formed his own version of the Superman Revenge Squad, this one composed of notorious super-villains: Anomaly, Barrage, Maxima, Misa, and Riot were united to take out Superman. However, a definite lack of cohesion, and conflicting agendas allowed Superman to overcome the Squad. Later the Superman Revenge Squad reformed: Rock, Parasite, Barrage and Baud. Superman managed to defeat them as well.
