    Glorious Godfrey and Tobias Whale along with the 100 are also potentially good ideas. Gangsters and Apocaliptian cult leaders.

    I miss those guys. Just doesn’t treat them as 1930s gangsters in a modern setting.
    But as 21st century modern gangsters using futuristic weapons.

    I would be ok with a front for Apokolips like the DCAU.

    Modern gangs such as MS-13 for instance?

    I was thinking more the youngsters in Sopranos than Al Capone expies.

    But your idea makes sense too.

    She made Jimmy turn into the wolfman. She showed up several times. But while she might have had a tempestuous relationship with Jimmy, she rather liked Lois I think (however imps always bring misfortune even to those they like).

    Back when Mxy was Mxyztplk, he was engaged to marry the daughter of the King of Zrfff and he left to get Lois to marry him instead so he wouldn't have to marry the king's daughter. So you could view that daughter as being the same as Gzptlsnz.

    Miss Gzptlsnz is brought back in the New 52 but given the longer name Nyxlygsptlnz, connecting her with Ferlin Nyxly (who was not connected with her in the pre-Crisis comics). She's the king's daughter and married to Mxy.

    Yet another version, Ms. Gsptlsnz, appears in the Animated Series but now is a young beauty.

    There were plenty of men and women that ran afoul of Lois Lane, pre-Crisis, but not many I can remember that had more than one shot.
    I know but I'm looking at a potential revamp. So revamping the other one shot antagonists would be fun.

    Everything old is new again.
