DC Comics villains who headlined their own series

This is simply a gallery of the first issues of DC Comics ongoing series or limited series starring a villain. 

I did not count one-shots, teams (Secret Society of Super-Villains, Suicide Squad, Crime Syndicate), or anti-heroes who have had their own ongoing series multiple times (Catwoman, Deathstroke, Harley Quinn, Lobo). 


bold character names = ongoing (albeit most did not ongo for long)

* = member of original Legion of Doom (i.e. Challenge of the Superfriends version)

Am I missing any?

Ann Nocenti did a Klarion book!?
I guess I should have paid more attention during Nu52 after all.
I'll have to hunt it down.
