5Thanos

With the Infinity Gauntlet, the fight may have been over before it even begins. If Thanos has no Infinity Gauntlet, he can still be a serious challenger for Superman. When it comes to raw power, Thanos has fought with the Hulk and many Avengers wherein he can hold himself up.

This Titan character is ruthless and can distract Superman before striking his fatal blow. Whether he has the Gauntlet or doesn’t, he is a cosmic being that can defeat Superman.

6Ant-Man

Feature Detail

This is probably an unexpected choice to say that he can somehow defeat the Kryptonian powerhouse. Before anything else, it is important to understand Ant-man’s powers and how he can use them to defeat Superman. He uses a gaseous form of the “Pym particles’ which is kept in his belt’s compartment. Ant-Man has the power to shrink himself at first. Over time, he has acquired the power to change his size. He can grow so big the same way he can become small.

However, it is not his big size that will defeat Superman. It is his ant size that may be able to take Superman down. Ant-man can shrink his size and enter Superman’s head. Ant-man can be strategic by using a distraction, get into Superman’s head, and bring in a kryptonite weapon to weaken Superman. He can even have a kryptonite bomb which can rip apart Superman from the inside.

7Scarlet Witch
