The Top 6 Sorcerers In The DC Universe

Previous1 of 7

The DC Universe is full of sorcerers running wild. Some side with the heroes while others fall in line with the villains. No matter which side of the spectrum they fall on, they are some of the most powerful figures in DC comics. Superman might be considered the most mighty of all the superheroes, but even some of the weakest sorcerers can take him down without breaking a sweat.

Don’t be mad characters like the Spectre and Etrigan aren’t on the list! They’re definitely powerful, but I like to think about them as entities instead of traditional sorcerers. A list focusing on DC Universe’s magical entities is a thing for another time.

For now, hit Next to find out more about the top sorcerers in the DCU!
