Anyone remember the Infinity Monster? Or the Negative/Positive Monsters?

Supergirl fought all of them in their first and only appearances...

oh, and those flying brains that fought the Super-Pets Smiley

Then there is that long forgotten Golden Age villian, the killer of hopes, the king of dread, the master of checkers?

Though this foe is only a Superman enemy by proxy, I personally always loved the concept of the Star-Czar. I mean, he turned out be "Snapper" Carr, confirming my lifelong suspicion that "Snapper" was an evil psycho.

I also always loved Momentus, Master of the Moon (created by Cary Bates) from SUPERMAN #355 (1981), because it involved Isaac Asimov becoming a Super-Villain. Momentus's body is made entirely of oozing orange mud. "Asa Ezaak's" powers are kind of trippy: if you create a liquid a thousand times more succeptible to tides than water, you'd have a being of unlimited power (uh, okay).

And I always loved Karb-Brak from the Andromeda Galaxy, who attempted to destroy Superman because he had an allergy to Superman's superpowers. The hardest thing to possibly do with a villain is create a motivation, and certainly a NEW motivation, and they've certainly got one with Karb-Brak.

Purple Pile-Driver!!

Okay, so maybe he's no great shakes, but since I own a piece of original art that I think comprises his entire history in print, I can't help but have a fondness for him:

What was the name of that robot that Supergirl fought that had no legs and fired missles from his chest?

As for a favorite Wonder Woman villian:

You're thinking of Matrix-Prime, who first showed up in DARING NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERGIRL #6 (1983). He didn't have legs, but he had these sort of tubes that were leg-jets. And yeah, he was a pretty awesome obscure villain.

Last time we saw him, Brains from the Gang had placed his brains in the body of Matrix-Prime. Intriguingly, Ms. Mesmer from the Gang, and the hypnotic disc on her chest, was recently used as a part of the all-female villain army that was assembled by Circe.

By the way, those weren't missiles that Matrix-Prime fired from his chest. Those were other robots.
