* EvilOrphanageLady: Granny Goodness from Apokolips could hardly be more inappropriately named, as her job is to brainwash the children in her orphanages into becoming servile, brutal slaves of ComicBook/{{Darkseid}}.

* BigGood: The Highfather. After his death this position is taken over by Takion. And of course, the [[strike:Force]] Source is ultimate universe-creating good of the series.

** [[strikethrough:Stan Lee]]... sorry, "[[Creator/StanLee Funky Flashman]]", the toady conman who works for Darkseid lives in a [[Creator/MarvelComics crumbling house]] with a sycophantic manservant based on Roy Thomas, and gets his meagre cash by [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic rooting around in a container shaped like Jack's head]] and isn't [[SmallNameBigEgo half as talented as he thinks he is]]. Oh, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and he wears a toupée]]. Jack was ''[[{{Understatement}} not]]'' happy with Stan at the time.

->'''''There came a time when the Old Gods died!''''' ''The brave died with the cunning! The noble perished, locked in battle with the unleashed evil! It was the '''last''' day for them! An ancient era was '''passing''' in '''fiery''' holocaust! The '''final''' moment came with the '''fatal''' release of the '''indescribable power''' -- which '''tore''' the home of the Old Gods asunder -- '''split''' it in great '''halves''' -- and filled the universe with the '''blinding''' death-flash of its '''destruction'''! In the '''end''' there were '''two''' giant '''molten''' bodies, spinning slow and '''barren''' -- clean of '''all''' that had gone '''before''' -- adrift in the '''fading''' sounds of '''cosmic''' thunder... '''Silence''' closed upon what had happened -- a '''long, deep''' silence -- wrapped in massive '''darkness'''... '''it was this way for an age...''''' '''THEN--THERE WAS NEW LIGHT!'''

* HeartIsAnAwesomePower. Villainous example, and again, Glorious Godfrey. How dangerous could someone who is a goodlooking blond with tremendous powers of persuasion possibly be? There's no way a cowardly wimp like him could be a threat. HaHaHaNo. ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' showed just how powerful a talent like that could be.

** In the original comics, he tours an ''amusement park''. Granted, it was one [[CircusOfFear controlled by Apokolips]] but he seems genuinely amused when a pair of people mistake him for a guy in costume. And then there was that time Darkseid wore a costume...of course, that was part of a plan to get close to a human whose mind contained the Anti-Life Equation.
