1995 Skybox DC Villains: The Dark Judgment Circe Chase Card ge9

Cruelty and torture are the hallmarks of the sorceress Circe. This centuries-old beauty plays with the minds of men and immortals alike.

Off the cuff, I can't recall there ever having been another Wonder Woman villain on a chase card subset, so I'm glad at least Circe got the nod. I'm also pleased that between her exposed skin, lavender hair and pastel green costume, Circe was light enough to overcome the vexing Spectra foil etching to allow a decent scan.

In the nine card "Gathering of Evil" subset, Circe stood on the bottom left of a group shot that also included the impressive company of the Joker, Doomsday, Lex Luthor, Bane, Parallax, Darkseid, Brainiac and Mongul. That's four Superman villains, two Batman rogues, two general DCU menaces, and the most popular comic book foil of the Amazing Amazon since the '90s.

The backs of the cards were all shades of brown dirt with various bugs crawling around. Circe got a worm. All were painted by Steve Stanley.
