Can anyone think of a Superman villain whose name begins with the letter Y?  Nothing in the Great Superman Book.

Trying to fill out the alphabet of villains:

I am the world's largest noob. I read what you said, and then went on about Superman villians that started with an L. Forgive me.

This is a tough one. But here is a stretch that I came up with, and it's all I have so far:

In Supergirl v2, which is canonical, Masters of the Universe stories ran in the back of the book for some time. Later, in an issue of DC Comics Presents, Superman met the Masters of the Universe.

There was a MOTU character named Yuckers, but I do not remember if the character ever appeared in these canonical stories, or whether he/she was a villian.

Ok, I have the solution, and this was indeed a tough one.

Create an article on Sinestro (if there isn't already one.) Then create an article entitled "Yellow Lantern" which says "see Sinestro."

Certainly Sinestro has appeared in many Superman comics...just find a reference and the problem is solved.

That's pretty ingenius --it just may come to that sort of slight of hand.  Does anyone ever call Sinestro "Yellow Lantern"?

I dug up references to the Yellow Mask, a villain from the Superman radio show, unfortunately not canon unless there was a 70s-80s story featuring the character.  You'd think that with all the kooky, one-off villains created in the the Bronze Age, there would be a Y villain.  I would even settle for a real name/secret identity.

Of course, there is also Bizarro Yellow Lantern from the 1980s Superman.  I wonder, he is a coward and not a hero, but is he actually a villain?
