Parasite is an enemy of Superman who feeds on energy by hungrily absorbing it into his body, draining all living creatures into husks at his touch. Because of the massive danger he presents to anyone he comes into contact with, he spends most of his time imprisoned in Stryker's Island Penitentiary. He has been a member of the Suicide Squad, Superman Revenge Squad and Secret Society of Super-Villains. Parasite was created by Jim Shooter and Al Plastino, first appearing in Action Comics #340. (1966)
