Mongul is the name of two fictional character that appear in comic books published by DC Comics. The first version of the character debuted in DC Comics Presents #27 (Nov. 1980) and was created by writer Len Wein and artist Jim Starlin. The second version first appears in Showcase '95 #85 (Sept. 1995) and was created by writer Peter J. Tomasi and artist Scot Eaton.

Debuting in the Bronze Age of comic books, Mongul has featured in other DC Comics-endorsed products such as animated television series; video game; a direct-to-DVD film, and merchandise such as action figures and trading cards.

Mongul debuted in the title DC Comics Presents and was created by writer Len Wein and artist Jim Starlin. Starlin often receives credit as creator of the character, but Wein in an interview stated "Well, [Mongul] had Starlin visuals, but he was my creation." Wein said he conceived Mongul specifically as a villain to physically challenge Superman.

Mongul was originally the ruler of his own alien race until a revolution occurred and was exiled into outer space. In his first appearance, Mongul kidnaps Superman's friends (Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen and Steve Lombard), threatening to kill them unless the hero brings him the key that can active the artificial planet Warworld. After retrieving the key the character activates Warworld; psychically linked with its controls, Mongul attempts to destroy Superman and Supergirl. Mongul is ultimately rendered unconscious by a massive mental strain caused from using its controls, but manage to escape before the heroes destroy Warworld.
