Fenrir

Fenrir, pictured here poised to rip Odin's face off, is the original big bad wolf. You know how the Norse gods are the most hardcore pantheon ever? Well, those ultra-tough gods were all scared to death of Fenrir. Fenrirphobia was so great that they tricked the wolf into chains when he was still a cub. BUT CHAINS CAN'T HOLD FENRIR, CRAZIES! He broke out of them right quick, so the gods resorted to restraining him with bonds of magic, but even those can't hold him indefinitely. Fenrir is fated to swallow Odin like a cheap appetizer on Ragnarok, and then eat the world as an entree. So yeah. We think he can handle Superman.
