Comics have played an essential role in our lives. Hiding comic book inside the text book was technique most us did to trick our parents during the study hours. The stories in the comic book took us to a whole new world where everything was larger than life. Numerous superheroes (who were always on their toes to protect the earth) and countless super villains (who were real pain in neck) with powers which made them next to immortals fuelled our rides of fantasy.

So here is a list of top 10 villains of Super Commando Dhruv.
