Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2: Villains In Paradise features 16 different DC parody sketches. Here they are ranked from worst to best.
Which skits in the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2: Villains In Paradise were the funniest? Stop-motion sketch show Robot Chicken has been airing on Adult Swim for ten seasons and over that time the pop culture parody has produced several specials. Star Wars was the subject of the first few specials before Robot Chicken turned its attention to a new target – DC Comics. The first DC special aired in 2012 and was followed by Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2: Villains in Paradise in 2014.
As its title suggests, Robot Chicken DC Comics Special 2: Villains in Paradise concentrates largely on villainous DC characters – in particular, the Legion of Doom – although plenty of DC heroes get screen time too. Alongside Robot Chicken regulars Seth Green, Zeb Wells and Breckin Meyer, the cast features a whole host of talents including Alfred Molina voicing Lex Luthor and Green Arrow, Zac Efron as Superboy and Brainiac while Paul Reubens plays The Riddler.
