** Vandal Savage practically invented evil as a human concept. Born Vandar Adg, a caveman who received super intellect and immortality from a meteorite, Savage used his endless life to become the biggest monster he could. [[HistoricalRapSheet Over the millennia]], he has been one of the most vicious and depraved men in history and one of the [[MagnificentBastard most efficient]] [[ManipulativeBastard manipulators]] in the DCU, with billions of bodies to his name. Savage has spent his time as TheManBehindTheMan to many conquerors, [[TheChessmaster organizing conquests and massacres]]. Vandal has also fathered legions of monsters, but with the exception of one child, he considers the rest pathetic and treats their lives or deaths as not worthy of his attention. His treatment toward his sole legitimate child, Scandal, [[AbusiveParents was no better]]: on her birthday, he forced her to run a gauntlet of men beating her, and if she failed, he swore he'd murder her mother. Despite Scandal being a lesbian, Vandal wants a male heir- and has no compunction having Scandal raped by other supervillains to get it. Vandal's crimes have also including introducing a new drug in the stead of heroin that burns out its users to death very quickly, multiple murders and [[ImAHumanitarian cannibalism]] (which he might well have invented as a concept), attempting to pull an asteroid down to earth and murdering Golden Age superheroes with their families after founding a Neo-Nazi group called The Fourth Reich. His sole motives are [[ForTheEvulz fun]], [[ItAmusedMe boredom]], or [[AGodAmI to shape the world in his twisted image]].
** In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueDoom'', he is a conqueror with genocidal plans for the planet. He manages to steal the protocols that Batman designed to defeat the Justice League in case one or more members of the Justice League turn evil. Savage makes these protocols more lethal and sadistic and then uses them to take out the Justice League. After his LegionOfDoom seemingly triumphs over the Justice League, Vandal Savage informs them he plans to conquer the world by using a missile that will cause a solar flare that will kill half the world's population. This event will also render the rest of the world's population so weak and helpless that they will naturally accept his leadership.
** In ''Series/LegendsOfTomorrow'', originally known as [[SinisterMinister Hath-Set]], he is an {{immortal|ity}} tyrant bent on [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination]] and the BigBad for season 1. Starting out as an obsessive StalkerWithACrush to Chay-ara, the future Hawkgirl, Hath-Set murdered her and her lover Prince Khufu, the future Hawkman, when he discovered their relationship. After becoming immortal, he repeated this crime in each of their reincarnations, often resorting to extreme methods to do so, such as triggering a destructive flood, killing millions, and threatening to lay waste to Central City. [[HistoricalRapSheet Over the millennia]], Savage has manipulated and worked with a number of historical figures, including UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler and UsefulNotes/JosefStalin, to help further his goals. In his campaign for world domination, Savage commits a number of terrible crimes, including horrifying [[TestedOnHumans human experimentation]] in attempts to replicate Hawkman and Firestorm's powers, selling a nuclear warhead to terrorist groups, and leading a {{cult}} that worships him [[AGodAmI as a god]]. Acting as a [[EvilMentor mentor]] to [[OverlordJr Per Degaton]] in the 22nd century, Savage [[ManipulativeBastard manipulates him]] into [[{{Patricide}} murdering his own father]], then releases a [[SyntheticPlague biological weapon]] to decimate the world's population. Savage later [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness betrays and murders Degaton]], using his resources to take over the world. Conquering Earth by 2166, Savage causes billions of deaths, uses a {{giant|Mecha}} [[KillerRobot robot]] as a weapon of mass destruction and personally murders [[TheCaptain Rip Hunter's]] wife and son, endlessly taunting Rip over this as they encounter each other throughout history. In the end, Savage attempts to cause a temporal paradox that will reset history back to AncientEgypt, where he plans to start his war of conquest all over again.
