Who's the Joker to your Batman? Or the Mojo-jojo to your Powerpuff Girls? Supervillains are the anti-heroes... The bad guys. However, they are key to all superhero stories and often portrayed as "inextricably connected to the hero, and aid in the hero's character development through their inherent opposition to them".

The best supervillains are worthy opponents to their superhero nemeses. They are riddled with personality and moral failures but often they are more fun. In many cases, they do have likeable qualities (like humour) that draw the viewers to them. I bet your kids have cheered for a supervillain or two.

In this creative printable worksheet set, we explore supervillains!
