[[folder: Superman (Clark Kent/Kal-El)]]
-->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/TimDaly (''SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''), Creator/JasonMarsden (''Superman: The Animated Series'', teenager), Creator/ChristopherMcDonald (''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', old man), Creator/GeorgeNewbern (''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'')

The quintessential [[TheCape Cape]] and FlyingBrick of the DC Animated Universe.

An alien orphan named 'Kal-El' who was sent into space as an infant to avoid suffering a cataclysmic death on his home planet of Krypton. His craft landed in a Kansas field and he was discovered by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who raise the boy as their son under the name 'Clark'. As he matures under the Earth's yellow sun, he gains superhuman powers such as nigh-unlimited physical strength and the power of flight. As an adult, he moves to Metropolis to work as a newspaper reporter. It is here he becomes aware of the corruption and evil in the world, deciding [[ComesGreatResponsibility he must use his gifts]] to right these wrongs, taking the moniker '{{Superman}}' after a story of his deeds is published in the Daily Planet by Lois Lane, who uses the term.

After having worked long and hard since the end of "Legacy" (from ''SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'') to regain the world's trust in him, it is he who first suggests that he and the other superheroes form the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', in order to deal with future threats as great as the Imperium. According to the series' promotional information, he was shown to be the face of the League, as well as the peacemaker for the other members.

* {{Badass}}: Regularly goes up against enemies at least as powerful as him and far more ruthless, and has demonstrated that even without his powers, he's still not to be taken lightly.
* [[spoiler:BadassGrandpa[=/=]CoolOldGuy: He's still active in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', and looks like he's only in his late 40's/early 50's, thanks to his Kryptonian physiology.]]
* BettyAndVeronica: Lana and Lois a couple of times.
* BerserkButton: Harming his friends is never a wise thing to do since he's, well, Superman. Aptly demonstrated in the second part of "Hereafter," where he flew into enough of a rage to ''almost'' smash Vandal Savage's head with a rock when the other man started describing in detail [[KillEmAll how he slaughtered the other League members]] (but the ResetButton was very handy at the end of the episode), and in "For the Man Who Has Everything," where Mongul was [[CurbStompBattle running Wonder Woman ragged]].
** Additionally, in "For the Man Who Has Everything," Supes didn't take it well that [[spoiler:Mongul's Black Mercy plant forced him to have to [[TearJerker make a painful choice to leave his idyllic fantasy life behind to return to reality]].]]
** Darkseid's mere presence also qualifies. He's the only character in the entire DCAU that Superman has ''no'' reservations about killing.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: As Darkseid and Mongul find out the hard way.
* [[spoiler: BrainwashedAndCrazy: Twice first he was brainwashed by Darkseid in ''Legacy'' and then he was possessed by a parasite creature for '''several years''' by the time of the ''Batman Beyond'' episode ''The Call''.]]
* BrokenPedestal: [[spoiler:For Captain Marvel. It was Lex Luthor's plot to make people distrust Superman and it worked well for Captain Marvel, that even Superman thought what he was doing was wrong, but the other founding members immediately showed that it was all a ploy.]]
** At the start of ''Justice League'', many people on the whole world saw him as this, after the ''STAS'' finale when Darkseid brainwashed him into leading the charge against his adopted homeworld. He only got proof that his efforts to fix his image paid off after Green Arrow stood up to him in "Divided We Fall".
* BroughtDownToBadass: Superman gets depowered and handles himself [[spoiler:on an AfterTheEnd Earth]] pretty well, [[spoiler: including forging a sword out of rebar and turning a pack of wolves that had been hunting him into sled dogs.]]
** Luminus filters all sunlight except red to depower Supes, then baits him into a HardLight death trap. Supes manages to survive until he destroys the sun blocker.
** In the second part of "The Main Man", he gets some alien goons to throw him into a cage with a dodo and a simulated yellow sun.
** In "Double Dose", he defeats the Parasite with a ''mop.''
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS: [[TropeCodifier Obviously]]
* TheCape: The original, and most would say still the best.
* CharacterDevelopment: Across the series, you can see Superman and Clark becoming DarkerAndEdgier or at least losing some of his innocence and lightness as he transitions from NaiveNewcomer at Metropolis in the early episodes of ''Superman'' to becoming hero for the planet, and then being confronted by Darkseid a force who can't simply be beaten in a fight or with all his powers. In ''Justice League Unlimited'' during the Cadmus arc, he becomes increasingly paranoid to the point that even Lois and Batman are concerned and receives a WhatTheHellHero speech. In the final season he passes through this darker period and regains some of his old idealism, though he's less naive.
* ChickMagnet: Clark Kent was irresistible in high school and Lana Lang even complained about his ability to attract every woman in the area.
* ClarkKenting: Lampshaded in "My Girl." Clark's friend Lana Lang does not buy his act for a second.
* DeadpanSnarker: He can go toe-to-toe with Lois and come out on top.
* {{Determinator}}: He will never give up on someone who needs his help, even if he seemingly has no chance of winning.
-->'''Fate''': You went back. You didn't stand a chance and you went back. Till then, I thought it was only the forces of evil that wouldn't give up. [[Heartwarming/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries I was wrong.]]
* EverythingsBetterWithSpinning: He spins rapidly quite a bit in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', often to [[ThisIsADrill drill]] through the ground.
* EvilMeScaresMe: After the Justice Lords saga.
* EyeBeams
* FightOffTheKryptonite: A couple of times.
* FlashStep: Uses his SuperSpeed like this frequently.
* FlyingBrick
* FreakinessShame: Teenage Clark wasn't very happy to learn that he's an alien at first.
-->'''Teen Clark:''' It's not true. I'm not a freak. I'm not. ''(punches a wall)'' '''''I'M NOT!!'''''
* GenreSavvy: Sort of. This incarnation of Big Blue is definitely not infallible, and is often caught off-guard by something new or unexpected. But "fool me once" applies; try the same trick on him again, and he'll have figured out a counter, or even run a BatmanGambit on you.
** Seen most awesomely in "Mxyzpixilated", where he goes from being utterly befuddled and questioning his sanity to running rings around Mxy. Also several of the examples under BroughtDownToBadass, above.
* HometownNickname: Lois calls Clark "Smallville".
* HumanAliens
* IAmNotLeftHanded: In the grand finale of ''Justice League Unlimited'', he unleashes all his strength on {{Darkseid}} after giving him ''[[TropeNamer the]]'' WorldOfCardboardSpeech.
* IdealHero: But he's far from perfect, as seen multiple times, since he will become a KnightTemplar if anyone close to him is killed.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: [[spoiler:His greatest fantasy is to live as an ordinary farmer in a world that's free of the problems that require a Superman.]]
* LanternJawOfJustice: Lampshaded in "Knight Time", where he poses as Batman and a few characters notice that his chin seems to be much larger.
* TheLeader: Charismatic of the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The intro theme to the animated series.
* LivingLieDetector: Clark Kent, using his super-human senses, can gauge heart-rate and eye-level to make a fairly accurate deduction of a person's honesty.
* MoralityChain: Both LoisLane and TheFlash serve as these to him. It's shown in, respectively, "Brave New Metropolis" and "A Better World" that if either of them die, he'll become much less forgiving towards criminals.
--> '''GrimDark Superman:''' I always thought if I set an example... did enough ''good''... I could make a real change. I didn't realize I was in a war. Then - suddenly - ''you'' became a casualty in that war.
* MuggingTheMonster: In the ''Batman Beyond'' episode ''The Call'', supervillain Inque took a hostage who turned out to be Superman. [[CurbStompBattle The instance ended how you would expect.]]
* NiceGuy: Probably one of the nicest superheroes on Earth.
* NighInvulnerable: The guy can withstand ''lava''.
* PhysicalGod: Becomes part of the conflict with Cadmus, post-Justice Lords.
* PowerLossMakesYouStrong: Memorably in "Hereafter".
* RedEyesTakeWarning: When he uses his EyeBeams.
* RobotMe: It's emphasized in "A Better World" that Superman has robot duplicates of himself to keep things in check when he's not around. His Justice Lord counterpart uses ''his'' robot duplicates to maintain order at Arkham Asylum (and presumably elsewhere as well).
* RousingSpeech: Even more than the original comics, Superman here knows how to talk the talk as much as he can walk the walk [[PhysicalGod (all over your face)]]. If he can't beat the bad guy without killing him ([[IAmNotLeftHanded because he most certainly can]]), then he'll be TalkingTheMonsterToDeath.
* ShootingSuperman: "Question Authority" provides one of the more blatant examples of this.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: He looks (and at the proper age, [[TimeShiftedActor sounds]]) ''exactly'' like his father.
* SuperpowerLottery
* SuperSpeed: Though he's not quite as fast as Flash.
* SuperStrength: Another power.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Becomes a problem during the Cadmus arc because his Justice Lord counterpart broke this code.
** Darkseid, as stated above, is an exception. After their last encounter in his previous series, Superman has no problem killing him.
** At one point, he was really tempted to break this code on Luthor. He states he wishes he was like his Justice Lord counterpart, but he just won't do it.
** He's got no problem doing this against wolves, though it might have been owing to the fact that he had no choice (and their sentience is a bit easier to debate).
** He kills several nazi pilots in ''The Savage Time''.
* TheParagon: Just, strong and a damn good leader.
* TimeShiftedActor: Superman on ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''.
** In the FiveEpisodePilot teenaged Clark was played by JasonMarsden.
* VoiceChangeling: Superman could mimic voices thanks to precise muscle control and a really good ear, which severely creeps out Robin when he demonstrates it.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Where he goes, weird stuff that probably wouldn't bother Earth comes in search of him.
* TheWorfEffect: Got hit with this pretty bad when starting out in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. The writers apologized for it and did their best to make up for it later on.
* WorldOfCardboardSpeech: His speech at the end of ''Justice League Unlimited'' is the TropeNamer.
* WouldHitAGirl: Although he's willing to put up with a lot more from them before he resorts to it.
* XRayVision: One of his regular powers.

[[folder:Allies]]
!! {{Supergirl}} (Kara In-Ze/Kara Kent)
-->'''Voiced By:''' Nicholle Tom

Kara In-Ze is the sole survivor of Krypton's sister planet, Argo. While exploring the space around the destroyed Krypton, Superman found Kara in a cryogenic facility and took her in as his adoptive cousin. Inspired by her adoptive cousin, Kara made a costume with Superman's logo and occasionally acted as Superman's effective sidekick in his adventures. She later becomes a member of the expanded ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''.

* ActionGirl: Is a fight around? She'll go into it without a problem.
* AdaptationNameChange: She's basically the comics' Kara Zor-El. In the comics, In-Ze was her mother Allura's maiden name.
* BadassAdorable
* BareYourMidriff
* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Big In Japan]]: InUniverse, as revealed in ''Chaos at the Earth's Core''.
* BroughtToYouByTheLetterS
* CaptainErsatz: Of the pre-Crisis {{Supergirl}}, Kara Zor-El (who was later rebooted into post-Crisis continuity). The reason that she wasn't Kara Zor-El outright was that DC had the editorial mandate of "Superman is the last Kryptonian, period." So the writers had to slightly modify her origin and name to fit the series.
* CharacterDevelopment: Develops greatly from her first appearance in "Little Girl Lost" to JLU. In her first appearances from STAS to JLU she was criticized for being impulsive and reckless. By the time ''Divided We Fall'' rolls around, she was chosen to be in charge of the League while the founding seven were in custody. In her final appearance, Green Lantern himself notes that there is nothing more he can teach her.
* CuteBruiser
* {{Determinator}}: In ''Chaos at the Earth's Core'', she fights Metallo despite her powers being significantly reduced and him having a Kryptonite power battery that can kill her. Even weakened and near death she managed to remove the battery from his chest.
* DistaffCounterpart: To Supes.
* EvilCounterpart[=/=]EvilTwin: Galatea is Supergirl's evil clone.
* EyeBeams
* FarmersDaughter: Galatea, a clone of Supergirl, is described by a reporter as "blonde hair, blue eyes, real farmer's daughter type" (and with Galatea being a clone, this obviously applies to Supergirl as well). Kara was actually raised on a farm by Ma and Pa Kent, who treated her like one of their own children.
* FightOffTheKryptonite: Against Metallo, memorably.
* FireForgedFriends: With Batgirl in "Girls' Night Out." Livewire hits Gotham and meets up with Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, and Kara joins with Batgirl to stop them. Both later admit each has what the other would like, and "Comfort and Joy" in JusticeLeague shows they're on a first-name basis (and Kara joined Barbara for skiing the Christmas Clark brings the MartianManhunter to the farm).
* FlyingBrick: Her powers are on par with Superman.
* HeadbuttingHeroes: With Stargirl in ''Chaos at the Earth's Core'' though by the end of the episode, they appear to be becoming friends.
* HumanAliens
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure
* LeeroyJenkins: Initially, though over time it lessened.
* NighInvulnerable
* ProphecyTwist: Benefits from one.
* PutOnABus: At the end of [[spoiler:"Far From Home".]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: She was a teenager when Krypton was destroyed, before being revived years later.
* SealedGoodInACan: How Superman finds her in "Little Girl Lost", frozen in a cryogenic chamber.
* {{Sidekick}}
* SuperpowerLottery: She has all the powers of Superman.
* SuperSpeed: Though not quite as fast as Flash.
* SuperStrength
* TwinTelepathy: In Supergirl's dreams, she relives the memories of Galatea.
* XRayVision

!!LoisLane
-->'''Voiced By:''' Dana Delany

The Daily Planet's star reporter, she never stops at anything to get a good front-page story, though her headstrong nature nearly gets her killed several times. She is initially skeptical of Superman, but eventually falls in love with him. She is also good friends with her fellow reporter Clark Kent, who, like in the comics, never figures him out to be Superman's identity, although it's hinted, but never made clear, that she eventually found out in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited''.

* ActionGirl: She is outclassed by the supervillains of the show, but when faced with normal human opponents, or when she's pushed into a corner without Superman to save her, she does well all by herself.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DamselOutOfDistress: When you click on the trope link, you see a picture of her.
* HotScoop: She's a reporter, and very attractive.
* IntrepidReporter: Her introduction revolves around her discovery of a wide-spread gun smuggling ring
* [[LovesMyAlterEgo Loves Superman, Doesn't Care For Clark Kent]]: Played with actually, she starts out rather skeptical of Superman and while she constantly teases Clark, ''The Late Mister Kent'' (and a few other episodes) shows that this may be to cover up a crush on him.
* MagicSkirt: Gets this all the time, as most of the time she is falling from high heights, getting caught in gusts of wind, being carried by Superman, and being attacked by bad guys, all while wearing these short skirts. She eventually gives up and starts wearing pants.
* MsFanservice: Though she pales in comparison to Wonder Woman or Black Canary.
* PurpleEyes
* SecretKeeper: Knows that Bruce is Batman, and it kills her that she can't say anything about it.
* ShesGotLegs: Seems like whenever Lois is on screen, [[MaleGaze it's a full-length point of view]].
* TooDumbToLive: She's put herself in danger multiple times, but at least usually she didn't know how dangerous it was or at least ''tried'' to take some kind of precaution. But in ''Target'' she's being targeted for murder. She knows how dangerous her unknown enemy is and she's actually under police protection. During a phone conversation with Clark she suddenly realizes who the attempted murderer is. What does she do? She sneaks off to confront them face to face. While Clark and everyone else still thinks she's under police protection. If it hadn't been for Luthor just happening to call Clark to give him a vital piece of information she would have been dead by the end of the episode.
* WeirdnessMagnet: Seems to attract more than her share of freaks and killers, as lampshaded by Dan Turpin:
-->'''Lois Lane:''' Bizarro?
-->'''Dan Turpin:''' You know this guy? Figures. All the whackos come to you.
* WillNotBeAVictim: She's the traditional [[DamselInDistress damsel]], frequently being rescued by Superman, but she is also a competent and driven woman all on her own. In the episode "Target," despite a madman consistently trying to kill her, she remains unconcerned and defiant. She points out that she will never ''let'' herself become a victim, and she actually beats up her assassin with her own hands before he catches her in one last DeathTrap.
* WorthyOpponent: Lex Luthor once explained to Lois that, as much as he disliked her for the shots she takes at him and his company, he respects her for her skills and abilities.

!!JimmyOlsen
-->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/DavidKaufman

A cub reporter and photographer in the Daily Planet, he is the best pal of both Superman and Clark Kent, although he never finds out they are one in the same. He has a special signal watch with a distinctive "zee zee zee" that he can use to call Superman anywhere on Earth.

* ADayInTheLimelight: "Superman's Pal"
* {{Adorkable}}: Jimmy gets adorably awkward when he's shy or embarrassed.
* DistressedDude: in "Solar Power" and "Superman's Pal", he's kidnapped by members of Superman's RoguesGallery.
* HeroicBystander: Sometimes Jimmy gets off the sidelines to save the day.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial: The episode "Superman's Pal" and more than one issue of the ''ComicBook/TheSupermanAdventures'' hint that Jimmy has a bit of an inferiority complex.
* IntrepidReporter
** CameraFiend: Jimmy's a photographer, not a regular journalist.
* LetsGetDangerous / CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Jimmy doesn't look like much, but if you threaten anyone he cares about -- well, the Man of Steel credits him with saving his life at least twice.
* MuggleBestFriend: To Superman.
* NiceGuy: In spite of occasional snarkiness, he's one of the most cheerful, friendly people in the series.
* RedHeadedHero: Jimmy is a redhead in this incarnation.
* TeensAreShort: Jimmy is the shortest character of the regular cast.
* UndyingLoyalty: Or pretty awful close. Even after Superman has [[BrainwashedAndCrazy gone on a crusade for]] [[{{Darkseid}} a monstrous alien overlord]], Jimmy still isn't ready to give up on his pal.
-->'''Jimmy''': Superman's saved the world hundreds of times. We ''owe'' him another chance!
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Superman gives this talk to him twice in "Superman's Pal", once in each identity.

!!Perry White
--> '''Voiced By:''' George Dzundza

* AFatherToHisMen
* CanonImmigrant: The name "Perry White" was first used in [[Radio/TheAdventuresOfSuperman the radio show]].
* CatchPhrase: "Don't call me 'Chief'!" (mostly to Jimmy)
* ConsummateProfessional
* DaEditor
* IntrepidReporter: In his youth.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* SatelliteCharacter: His biggest role centers around his time at the Daily Planet and its staff.
* WhenIWasYourAge: Quotes this to Lois, telling her that he didn't have computers of fax machines. Lois interrupts him and says "Yeah, yeah, and you walked ten miles on your bare feet to work every day."

!!The Kents
--> '''Voiced By:''' Mike Farrell (Jonathan "Pa" Kent) and Shelley Fabares (Martha "Ma" Kent)

* BadassNormal: While neither of them do much fighting, [[spoiler:when Braniac went back in time]] their response was simply to pull shotguns on him to defend their son.
* GoodParents: Martha and Jonathan are kind and supportive of their son -- they're a large part of the reason why he's such a NiceGuy.
* GrannyClassic: Martha is not a grandmother, but she certainly fits the image and personality; loving and supportive, loves to cook.
* HappilyMarried
* MamaBear: When Brainiac [[spoiler: went back in time]] to kill Superman, Martha pulled a shotgun on him to defend her son.
* MuggleFosterParents: To both Clark and Kara (Supergirl, who while is Clark's foster cousin, she calls them Ma and Pa).
* SecretKeeper: Started keeping Clark's secret long before he knew about it himself.
* SeenItAll: In the ''Justice League'' episode "Hearts and Minds", Clark brings [[MartianManhunter J'onn J'ozz]] home for Christmas. Despite his green skin, red eyes and UnderwearOfPower, they don't give it a second thought and warmly welcome him into their home.
* UpbringingMakesTheHero: It is a major theme in the Superman mythos how their upbringing of Clark, and the values they have instilled into him are instrumental in shaping him into who he is.

!! Professor Emil Hamilton
--> '''Voiced By:''' Victor Brandt, Robert Foxworth

* AbsentMindedProfessor
* BrokenPedestal: A mutual one with Superman. [[spoiler: He began to distrust Superman after the hero first went on a BrainwashedAndCrazy rampage and then threatened him (see SelectiveObliviousness). Superman, in turn, lost faith in him after he refused to help him and a critically injured Supergirl.]]
* [[spoiler:[[EtTuBrute Et Tu, Superman?]]]]
* [[spoiler:EvilFormerFriend: For Superman in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited''.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: Becomes a member of Project Cadmus in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Unlimited''.]]
* [[spoiler:FantasticRacism: Not just towards the Super Family, but the entire Justice League as well.]]
* [[spoiler:MyGodWhatHaveIDone: The looks he gives after Galatea hugs him says it all.]]
* [[spoiler:ParentalSubstitute and MoralityPet: To Galatea.]]
* TheProfessor
* SelectiveObliviousness: [[spoiler:Conveniently forgets that the reason Superman threatened him was because he refused to help save Supergirl's life until Superman was forced to do so.]]
** SelfServingMemory
* WalkingSpoiler
* [[spoiler:WellIntentionedExtremist]]

!! Dan Turpin
--> '''Voiced By:''' Joseph Bologna

A Metropolis cop who is part of the special crimes unit. He's know for his bravery, but is quite hot-tempered and foolhardy, and has had to be pulled from the force quite a few times. Nevertheless, he is one of Superman's most valuable allies, even saving his life at least once.

* BadassBystander: Single-handedly turns the tide against {{Darkseid}}. With Superman [[BadassInDistress captured and publicly humiliated]] in order to cow humanity into hopelessness, Dan Turpin alone flips off the triumphant Darkseid and rallies the crowd behind him. He leads a counterattack, singlehandedly frees Superman, defeats several Parademons, and helps fend off the forces of Apokolips until [[GondorCallsForAid the forces of New Genesis arrive to liberate the Earth]]. Now, while it's true that the ''viewers'' already knew Turpin was a tough cop, Darkseid had no clue who this guy was and thought he'd conquered the Earth by defeating its greatest champion. [[spoiler: Unfortunately, this also counts as a DyingMomentOfAwesome, as the fleeing Darkseid kills Turpin out of spite, prompting Superman to deliver this quote at Turpin's funeral:]]
-->''"In the end, the world didn't need a Superman. Just a brave one"''
* BadassNormal: He rallied the people of Metropolis to oppose the forces of Apokolips and lead the charge.
* BrooklynRage: Responds to Darkseid's planet-wide speech by insulting Darkseid to his face and proceeding to free Superman.
* ButtMonkey: He frequently gets humiliated by the MonsterOfTheWeek. (It doesn't help that he's constantly TemptingFate with his pronouncements that the SCU will easily defeat the villain. At that point, the TheoryOfNarrativeCausality practically ''requires'' him to get his comeuppance.)
* CowboyCop
* DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu: "I don't care how many worlds you've conquered, ugly, you ain't gettin' this one!" He follows this up by tossing a stolen Parademons' lance at Darkseid.
* [[spoiler:DoNotTauntCthulhu: He paid for the above by getting disintegrated by Darkseid's Omega Beams.]]
* DudeWheresMyRespect: The media (especially Lois and Angela) give him a hard time due to being part of the "cleaning crew" while Superman does all the work. [[spoiler:Everyone sees him standing up against Darkseid, and getting killed for it. Even Lois, Angela, AND Lex were at his funeral.]]
* TheLancer: To Maggie Sawyer.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Modeled after his creator Jack Kirby. He's even Jewish like Kirby, proven with [[spoiler:the Jewish funeral he gets after being vaporized by Darkseid]]].
* [[spoiler:SacrificialLion]]
* [[spoiler:StuffedIntoTheFridge: He was vaporized by Darkseid just to spite Superman.]]
* TookALevelInKindness

!! Maggie Sawyer
--> '''Voiced By:''' Joanna Cassidy

* AmbiguouslyGay: Ambiguous only because it's not downright stated (she's a lesbian in the comics).
* TheCommissionerGordon: Superman spends most of his time working with her.
* DaChief
* FairCop
* HideYourLesbians
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure

!!Lana Lang
--> '''Voiced By:''' Joely Fisher

* AlliterativeName
* BettyAndVeronica: Lana l to Lois for Superman's affections.
* CaptainErsatz: Of Lois. Both of their characters were even combined in Superman's LotusEater world as the being, Loana.
* DamselinDistress
* FieryRedhead: At times.
* GirlNextDoor: To Clark in Smallville
* SecretKeeper
* UnluckyChildhoodFriend

!!Angela Chen
--> '''Voiced By:''' LaurenTom

* CanonForeigner
* HotScoop
* IsThisThingStillOn: Wasn't aware that she was on camera when she was commenting about her coffee being decaf.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* ManipulativeEditing: In "Superman's Pal", Angela has a quote by Jimmy Olsen altered from "I don't think I'd be real comfortable with that. [...] But it's not like I'd call us pals or anything". to "Real comfortable. I'd call us pals".
* TheRival: With Lois at the Daily Planet.
* ShesGotLegs
* TokenMinority: Seen as [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute Cat Grant]] with a RaceLift.

!!Bibbo Bibbowski
--> '''Voiced By:''' Creator/BradGarrett

* AlliterativeName
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Lois gave him money to call Clark should she had been in danger on a story she was covering. He quickly forgot and spent it on a soda machine. Superman ended up saving her anyway.
* FatherNeptune
* GentleGiant
* GoodIsDumb
* TheInformant: For Lois
* RecurringExtra: He's an absent-minded longshoreman, who appears in the pilot (with minor plot-relevance; he's established as an informant for Lois who helped her on an arms smuggling expose, and whom she asks to inform the ''Planet'' of her whereabouts if she doesn't return from the ship she is investigating, a task he is quickly distracted from). He appears several times thereafter, often just to provide a comment on something strange that has occurred, though occasionally Lois or Clark seek information from him, and he often makes shows of support for Superman.

!!{{Steel}} (John Henry Irons)
--> '''Voiced By:''' Creator/MichaelDorn (''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''), Creator/PhilLaMarr (''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'')

* ArmCannon: His forearm-mounted lasers.
* BadassBaritone

* FieryRedhead
* FlyingBrick: The Astro-Harness covers the flight part.
* HappilyAdopted: He loves his adopted father with as much intensity as he hates his biological one.

* PerpetualFrowner: Even his helmet seems to be frowning.
* PhysicalGod
* SkySurfing: With his Astro-Harness
* UnstoppableRage: One that can only be held back by the Mother Box.

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Antagonists]]
!!SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor
-->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/ClancyBrown

A genius, multi-billionaire living in Metropolis who is the chief executive of his own company, [=LexCorp=]. In reality, he's a sociopath with a thirst for power and control, which he will gladly go to any length to have. Constantly flexes his VillainWithGoodPublicity muscle as much as he possibly can and has the resources and connections to finance and direct plots against Superman from a distance while still appearing as a benign, philanthropic captain of industry to the public at large. He's an A-lister among Superman's rogues, not bad for a guy who doesn't have any StockSuperpowers and has to share a city with the original FlyingBrick. He later takes on various exploits to hamper the WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague and out them as threats to global security so he may do as he pleases unopposed.

* AddictiveMagic: Technological variant. Once he gets a taste of [[spoiler:Brainiac's power]] in ''Justice League Unlimited'', getting it back becomes his sole goal in life.
* AmbiguouslyBrown: WordOfGod says he's Greek and his appearance was based on Telly Savalas, a Greek-American actor. Bruce Timm attributes assumptions that he's black, despite his skin being the same color as Superman's, on his lips.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:Averted. Instead of going mad or resisting when he discovers that his cells have become a host for a nanotech version of Brainiac that now controls their body, Luthor strikes a bargain with the robot.]]
* ArchEnemy: To Superman.
* BadBoss: A frequent exponent of HeKnowsTooMuch and YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness. And in "Fish Story," he decides to go ahead with his underwater detonations while his employees are still setting the charges. When this is pointed out to him, his reply is...
-->'''Luthor:''' Their survivors will be well-compensated.
* BadassBaritone: As voiced by Clancy Brown
* BadassBoast: "I'm already more powerful than all of you put together."
* BadassNormal: Nowhere near Batman's level of training, but when you can forcibly assume leadership of a large group of superpowered beings ''and'' keep them in line just through your intelligence and personal charisma, you qualify.
** EmpoweredBadassNormal: [[spoiler:As Brainiac's takeover of Luthor's body proceeds in season two of ''Unlimited'', Luthor has a brief stint of superstrength]].
* BaldOfEvil
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler: He wanted so badly to merge with Brainiac again. Ironically, he then uses this exact same trope against Darkseid.]]
* BigBad: For much of ''Superman'' and the ''Justice League'' cartoon, where he ran first the Injustice Gang, Project Cadmus, and then the Legion of Doom.
* BigDamnVillains: In "A Better World."
* BitchInSheepsClothing: When it suits his purposes, he can be quite charming. But only when it suits him.
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler:In "Panic in the Sky", Brainiac bursts out from under Luthor's skin, leaving a human body with black robot tentacles randomly placed over his body and Brainiac's face protruding from his stomach. Though momentarily astounded, Luthor doesn't GoMadFromTheRevelation, which is itself evidence of a staggering amount of willpower]].
* TheChessmaster
* CivilianVillain: After being pardoned and while running for president.
* CompositeCharacter: Of himself. This version of Luthor ran the gamut from his modern CorruptCorporateExecutive incarnation, to the nineteen-forties DiabolicalMastermind, to the MadScientist of the sixties and seventies.
* CorruptCorporateExecutive
* CrazyPrepared: Made damn sure he can turn the powers of any member of the Secret Society against them if they step out of line, as Doctor Polaris, Goldface, and [[spoiler: Grodd]] found out to their sorrow. Also has an elaborate panic room hidden deep under a random Metropolis barber shop.
--> '''Steel:''' Gotta hand it to you, Luthor - ''nobody'' would think to look for [[BaldOfEvil you]] here.
* DemotedToDragon: In Season 3 of ''Justice League Unlimited'', when he's recruited into Gorilla Grodd's LegionOfDoom.
** DragonWithAnAgenda: He only joins because Grodd dangles [[spoiler:the last remaining chunk of Brainiac]] in front of him.
** TheStarscream: A successful one, too. He shoots Grodd and takes over the Legion as soon as it becomes expedient.
* DiabolicalMastermind: After losing his company and resorting to more obvious villainy. Reaches its height in Season 2 JLU.
* DisproportionateRetribution: His actions in ''Justice League Unlimited'' can be considered this as he describes it to The Question (while beating the crap out of him), who's trying to stop him from becoming president to keep from fulfilling a future where Superman kills him and turns evil.
-->'''Luthor:''' [[spoiler:President? Do you know how much power I'd have to ''give up'' to be president? That's right, conspiracy buff. I spent $75 million on a fake presidential campaign ''just to tick Superman off''.]]
* DomesticAbuser: He became this to Tala. It's also implied in ''Tabula Rasa'' that he was this to Mercy Graves at some point.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide: [[spoiler:He enjoys his merger with Brainiac since it gives him so much power.]]
* DualWielding: Twin laser pistols in Season 2 of JLU.
* EasilyForgiven: After a season and half of overt villainy -- including prison breaks, forming the Injustice Gang, and fistfighting Superman in a suit of PoweredArmor -- he wrangles himself a presidential pardon in return for his help against the [[ThePsychoRangers Justice Lords]]. Despite disapproving comments from the media, he is almost ''immediately'' forgiven by the public at large, to the extent that his presidential campaign in Season 2 of ''Justice League Unlimited'' draws Perot-in-'92 levels of support.
* EvilSoundsDeep: He ''is'' voiced by Creator/ClancyBrown.
* EvilerThanThou:
** He tries to pull this on the Joker in "World's Finest," but the Joker completely owns him.
** Ends up on both ends of this trope in ''Alive!'' He is the bigger evil than Grodd, but the lesser evil than [[spoiler:Darkseid]].
* FauxAffablyEvil
* GenreSavvy: ''Immediately'' realizes the Justice Lords are fakes in "A Better World."
* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:When fused with Brainiac.]]
* GunsAkimbo: In the JLU.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:He makes one to stop Darkseid in "Destroyer,"]] although it's somewhat subverted in that he's explicitly only doing it for revenge, not to save Earth.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Contracted an incurable illness due to always keeping Kryptonite on him. He has to have a machine implanted in him to stay alive for most of ''Justice League'' and ''Justice League Unlimited'' - [[spoiler:until Brainac cures him... for his own reasons]].
** In ''Superman'', he frequently has to be saved from the negative consequences of his own attempts to create the perfect anti-Superman weapon.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Averted ''big time''--in "The Great Brain Robbery", upon finding himself in the Flash's body, he ''immediately'' puts his powers to incredible use, from the standard SpeedBlitz to the weirder applications of high-speed vibration.
* ItsAllAboutMe
* {{Jerkass}}: He's such a colossal dick that, in "Injustice for All," he ends up having to ''triple'' the pay of his Injustice Gang to keep them from walking out on him (and then has to pay ''even more than that'' to get the Ultra-Humanite's help in keeping him alive). And in the final season of ''Justice League Unlimited'', he somehow manages to push several members of the Legion into backing a coup by Grodd, whose big master plan is to turn everyone on Earth into apes.
* MadScientist: Big time. Played up in the ''Justice League''.
* TheManBehindTheMan: To Project Cadmus in ''Justice League Unlimited''. [[spoiler:And then he, in turn, is revealed to be simply the UnwittingPawn of Brainiac.]]
* NeverMyFault: He gets cancer from manipulating [[GreenRocks kryptonite]] for years. He blames it all on Superman, saying that he would never had caught the disease if Superman didn't oppose him the first place.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's physically based off of Telly Savalas' portrayal of Blofeld from ''Film/OnHerMajestysSecretService''. Bruce Timm also took some of the characterization as well, describing both as a "cultured thug... a bruiser who wanted to be taken seriously."
* NotMeThisTime: When someone's attempting to kill Lois, Lex is at the top of the list due to the tech used being from his company. Lex points out he's never leave such an obvious trail if he ''did'' want to kill her, which he doesn't because he [[WorthyOpponent respects her]]. Lois believes him more because the killer's M.O.'s not Lex's style.
* NotSoImaginaryFriend: [[spoiler:Brainiac]] in Season 3 of ''Justice League Unlimited''. Unfortunately for him, [[spoiler:it turns out to not really be Brainiac after all...]]
* PetTheDog: When it appears that Superman has been killed, he comes to the funeral and comforts Lois, saying sadly, "I'll miss him, too." There are at least three fanbase interpretations:
** Genuine gratitude after the EnemyMine situation (involving the Justice Lords) got him pardoned.
** He's a VillainWithGoodPublicity and his absence would have been suspicious.
** He's sad because somebody else got there first, and he's mourning his TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou relationship.
* PoweredArmor: Wears it a lot in the ''Justice League'' cartoon, where he's forced to go head to head with the League. That said, his ''real'' "power suit" - as shown in the finale - is Armani.
* PresidentEvil: [[spoiler:Subverted. He only ran to annoy Superman. And it worked.]]
* TheQuisling: Despite previously having been an UnwittingPawn, [[spoiler:he voluntarily throws in with Brainiac in exchange for more personal power in "Divided We Fall."]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney
* ShadowArchetype: A cynical man who uses all kinds of money and political power to manipulate, throwing himself into conflict with an idealist who uses his abundance of physical power to protect.
** Becomes the BadassNormal GeniusBruiser in ''Justice League'' in contrast to Batman.
* SmugSnake: His arrogance sometimes leads him into this territory.
* TakingYouWithMe: When he finds out he's dying of kryptonite-induced cancer, he forms the Injustice Gang in a last-ditch effort to take out Superman and all his friends.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Whenever working with Superman, or the Joker, or Grodd.
* {{Troll}}: In season two of ''Justice League Unlimited''. [[spoiler:His entire presidential campaign was a farce to get under Superman's skin.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Of Brainiac's during the first two seasons of ''Justice League Unlimited''.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: In ''Superman: The Animated Series'' and the second season of ''Justice League Unlimited''.
* VillainousBreakdown: When the League exposes his crimes in "Injustice for All", he becomes a lot more irritable and less composed than he was previously.
* WealthyYachtOwner: He had one in the episode where he turned John Corben into Metallo.

!!{{ComicBook/Brainiac}}
-->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/CoreyBurton

A supercomputer AI from the planet Krypton who survived the planet's destruction. Now it seeks to gain as much knowledge from the galaxy as it can, by any means, as well as increase the value of that information by destroying any "redundant" data (ie, the original civilizations).

* AIIsACrapShoot: It knew Krypton was going to explode back when it was just a supercomputer, but it chose not to support Jor-El's findings; the revelation would only cause panic and might interfere with Braniac's own escape plan - and since it represents the sum total of all of the planet's knowledge, it was the only thing worth saving anyway.
* BaldOfEvil
* BigBad: Of Season 1 of Superman and a BigBadDuumvirate with [[spoiler:Lex Luthor]] in Season 2 of the JLU.
* BodyHorror: When he merges with [[spoiler:Lex.]]
* TheChessmaster: But as Lex notes, he lacks an imagination.
* TheCollector: Of information.
* CreepyMonotone
* EvilerThanThou: Darkseid pulls this on him in "Twilight."
* {{Expy}}: Of HAL from ''Main/TwoThousandAndOneASpaceOdyssey''.
* FightingAShadow[=/=]ActuallyADoombot: The real Brainiac is an AI inhabiting a vessel in the depths of space; all those robot bodies that Superman destroys are just remote-controlled drones.
* FromASingleCell: The tiniest bit of Brainiac always survives, is stored somewhere, and manages to take over more technology and reform himself completely. He is then defeated, and the processes repeats itself. However, the process of bringing him back is usually by complex means.
* FusionDance: With Luthor. [[spoiler:Then with Darkseid in the finale, though without his personality manifesting.]]
* GenericDoomsdayVillain: In ''JLU'', Luthor accuses him of being one when he points out that [[spoiler:Brainiac's purpose is to gain all the information about creation... and then destroy it for some arbitrary reason]]. Brainiac himself seems to come to agree on some level, as he agrees to [[spoiler:merge with Luthor so that they can actually ''use'' that information to remake the universe in their image.]]
* AGodAmI: When [[spoiler:fused with Luthor.]]
* UsefulNotes/GreenIsBlue: He is frequently referred to as "green." He is, in fact, blue.
* IAmTheTrope: He's fond of saying, "I am Krypton."
* ItsAllAboutMe: In "Last Son of Krypton," he sabotages Jor-El's efforts to warn people about Krypton's imminent destruction because it might interfere with his own escape, which he judges to be more important than helping evacuate the planet.
* JokerImmunity: He will just keep coming back every time he is defeated. If the episode ''New Kids in Town'' is of any indication, [[spoiler:Darkseid and Luthor disappearing with him fused into the former in the finale didn't seem to get rid of him, as some part of him may as well have survived elsewhere]].
* KneelBeforeZod: From "New Kids in Town," Brainiac makes a teenage Clark do this, even saying, "At last, the son of Jor-El kneels before me." [[spoiler:Much like with ''SupermanII'', Clark gave him a big surprise.]]
* NotSoStoic: In "Knight Time" he suddenly starts making emotive facial expressions when Superman attacks his spaceship.
** He also sports a PsychoticSmirk when he thinks he has Superman captured in "Stolen Memories."
* OmnicidalManiac: He wants to collect all the information of every civilization the universe, then destroy each planet, ultimately making him the only source of knowledge. At the time that he first appears in the series, he has already destroyed dozens of planets and killed billions.
* PlanetLooters: He travels from planet to planet, collects its knowledge, and then destroys it to move on to the next.
* RoboticPsychopath
* SelfServingMemory: When he demands that Luthor rebuild him in ''Ghost in The Machine'' he chooses to refer to the events of their last meeting as "[Luthor's] betrayal", conveniently forgetting that Brainiac was the one who had attempted to follow his modus operandi of taking all information on the planet and then blowing it up while Luthor had apparently been willing to keep his end of the bargain.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Superman uses potentially lethal force on him even before he discovers his FightingAShadow nature.
* WhereIWasBornAndRazed: He wasn't directly responsible for Krypton's destruction, but sabotaged Jor-El's efforts to warn people so he could concentrate on his own escape.

!!{{Darkseid}}
-->'''Voiced By:''' MichaelIronside

The absolute ruler of the wasteland planet Apokolips. Stuck in a truce with the neighboring planet New Genesis, Darkseid is always scheming about how to put the entire universe under his fist. Seeking the 'Anti-Life Equation', a powerful tool that could easily submit the entirety of existence under his thumb, he is a constant threat to planet Earth. He is Superman's most hated enemy for his many transgressions committed on Earth and Superman is willing to stop at nothing to see his end.

* AbusiveParents: He is, quite simply, not a nice person, and his children get no special treatment.
* AGodAmI: And won't shut up about it. (Justified since '''[[PhysicalGod HE IS ONE.]]''')
* AgonyBeam: His Omega Beams normally kill, but he can dial them down to this to amuse himself.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: This is shown perfectly in the penultimate episode of ''JLU''. He was killed 3 seasons before and Apokolips is in the middle of a CivilWar for who will take his place. After getting resurrected, he returns to Apokolips in the middle of a battlefield, halting the war completely. Usually, on a planet full of [[TheStarscream starscreams]] and after being dead for a few years, you would think that someone would try to rebel. In this case however, Darkseid doesn't even have to say anything. He just stands there and everyone immediately bows down to him. Darkseid Is indeed.
* BackFromTheDead: He was killed by Brainiac's exploding asteroid SuperVillainLair, but gets brought back when Luthor uses Tala against her will in an attempt to restore Brainiac. According to the DVD commentary, Tala did it on purpose just to spite Luthor. [[WomanScorned Hell hath no fury, indeed.]]
* {{Badass}}: Possibly the most powerful villain in the {{DCAU}} and one of the few villains who regularly goes toe-to-toe with Superman on a physical basis, and comes out none the worse for the wear. He's an evil monster, but there's no denying that he's {{Badass}}.
** BadassBaritone: In both [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwLZu_X8YBE English]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1v6UXDxkXQE&feature=related Spanish]].
** BadassBoast: Lots of 'em.
*** "I am many things Kal-El. You couldn't begin to imagine half of them, but for now I shall take the role of your executioner."
*** "I am many things, Kal-El... but here, I am ''[[AGodAmI God]]''."
*** "Super or otherwise, you're merely a man. And I am a ''[[AGodAmI god]]''."
* BadBoss: Servants are regularly abandoned once they are no longer useful, you are sent to the slave-pits for ''talking'', and with Kalibak he combines this trope with [[AbusiveParents utter contempt for his son and his efforts to please him.]]
* BaldOfEvil
* BigBad: Of ''Superman The Animated Series'' seasons 2 and 3. He, Luthor, and Grodd are in the running for this in Justice League.
* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Reacts this way to Superman's AndThisIsFor Dan Turpin punch.
--> "Had I known one human's death would pain you so, [[KickTheDog I would have killed more.]]"
* TheChessmaster: "I told you once, Superman, if you would not be my knight, you would be my pawn."
* TheDreaded: Terrifies the members of the Legion of Doom enough that [[EnemyMine they are willing to enter into an alliance with the Justice League against him.]]
* ElectricTorture: "It's called the Agony Matrix. Direct neuro-stimulation of pain receptors. All of them. Imagine the worst pain you have ever felt in your life times a thousand. [[FateWorseThanDeath Now imagine that pain continuing forever.]] Oh, that's right. You don't have to imagine."
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: What's the first thing he does when he meets Superman face-to-face? Blast him with his Omega Beams until he's on his knees. Who is he? ''That'' is who he is, Kal-El.
* EvilerThanThou: Even Brainiac can't compete.
* EvilIsPetty: He murdered Dan Turpin for no other reason than to stick it to Superman.
* EvilOverlord: As one would expect from Darkseid.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* EyeBeams: The Omega Beam.
* GeniusBruiser
* GodOfEvil: More specifically, the God of Tyranny.
* GodzillaThreshold: He's the one villain that Superman does not hold back on and he's the one villain that Superman is perfectly willing to kill.
--> '''Superman:''' ...this time I'm not going to stop until you're nothing but a greasy smear on my fist.
* KickTheSonOfABitch: Can you honestly say that [[AssholeVictim Bruno Mannheim]] didn't deserve the harsh treatment (and later abandonment and death) that Darkseid subjected him to?
** Does this again to Lex Luthor in ''Alive!''
* KnightOfCerebus: Any time Darkseid shows up, whether it's in ''S:TAS'' or ''JL'', things get a ''lot'' more serious.
* LargeAndInCharge: Rules Apokolips with an iron fist, and towers over almost every other character in the DCAU.
* LoopholeAbuse: At the end of "Apokolips...Now!", he is forced to agree to stop trying to invade Earth or face the wrath of New Genesis. He spends the rest of the series scheming various ways to strike out at Earth without violating the letter of his agreement.
* ManipulativeBastard
* NighInvulnerable
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Darkseid's power and evil are made clear by Superman's very uncharacteristic behavior toward him.
* PetTheDog: As unbelievable as it sounds, he does this at one point. After Bruno Mannheim installs an explosive at an important laboratory with the help of a few Parademons on Darkseid's orders, Darkseid [[KickTheSonOfABitch leaves Mannheim]] [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness to die in the explosion]], but right before doing so, he uses his Omega Beam to teleport the Parademons to safety.
* PhysicalGod
* PlayingBothSides: Does this in the conflict between Superman and Brainiac in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. Even though neither of them trust him, he puts them both in situations where they feel they need to work with him. He almost wins.
* PollutedWasteland: His entire planet.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: His motive in the ''JLU'' finale is to get revenge on Superman for killing him, first by [[ForcedToWatch forcing him to see Earth burn]] then cutting his heart out with a kryptonite knife.
* ScarsAreForever: In "Twilight," he still sports the scars Superman gave him at the end of "Legacy."
* StoryboardingTheApocalypse: Darkseid loves doing this and is damn good at it.
--> ''"I hope you appreciate, Kal-El, everything that happens from this point is on your head. The skies will rain fire, the oceans will boil, the streets run red with the blood of billions. Only then, when your last pitiful hope has been vanquished, will I end your life. Let's go.''"
* SuperStrength
* UngratefulBastard: "It seems I have you to thank for my resurrection. Though your world will suffer slowly, I grant you a quick death."
** Almost all of those villains would rather have died than bowed before Darkseid. Ergo, [[FridgeLogic he was granting them a boon...]] FromACertainPointOfView.

!!Kalibak
-->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/MichaelDorn

* TheBrute
* {{Determinator}}: His fight with Superman, in his first episode. He WILL NOT GIVE UP.
* DumbMuscle: He's treated as such by his father. While not your usual manchild type, he knows nothing about subtlety and gets easily manipulated.
* TheDutifulSon: Sort of.
* EvilSoundsDeep: It helps that this version of Kalibak is voiced by Michael Dorn.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain
* NighInvulnerable: While he's not as durable as Superman, he was unaffected by Batman shooting him with a missile.
* OverlordJr: Well, he tries.
* SuperStrength
* TheUnfavorite
* VillainDecay: His first appearance was a whole-episode slugfest where he stood toe-to-toe with Superman. In subsequent appearances he's little more than a doorstop: Superman punches him out in less than a minute in "Legacy", and although he beat Franchise/WonderWoman he loses to Batman in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. In his final appearance he finally got to do something useful... Because he was in an Enemy Mine situation with Scott Free and TheFlash.
* WellDoneSonGuy: To Darkseid.
-->'''Darkseid:''' I can't believe he's blood.
* TheWorfEffect: Gets subjected to this a lot after his first appearance. Becomes HilariousInHindsight, considering [[MichaelDorn who]] voices him.

!!Granny Goodness
-->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/EdwardAsner

---> '''Oberon:''' Do yer worst, ya old cow!
---> '''Granny Goodness:''' You ''wound'' Granny! ... but not as badly as Granny's going to wound ''you...''

* OrphanageOfFear
* TermsOfEndangerment: This is Granny Goodness we're talking about here so duh!

* VocalDissonance: And Ed doesn't even try to hide it.

!! Metallo (John Corben)
-->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/MalcolmMcDowell

John Corben was a mercenary hired by [=LexCorp=] to steal an experimental MiniMecha and deliver it to Lex's (illegal) buyers. Superman's debut in Metropolis was crushing the robot and hauling Corben off to prison. While in jail, Corben contracted a fatal disease. Lex Luthor, thankful for Corben refusing to testify against him, offered a solution: upload Corbin's mind into an immortal robot body, powered by a Kryptonite core. Corben enjoyed the limitless strength and durability, but the lack of touch, smell and taste drove him insane. He blamed Superman for all of this, letting Lex off the hook pretty quickly. He later joins the LegionOfDoom later in ''Justice League Unlimited''.

* AffablyEvil
* AndIMustScream: His fate at the end of "Action Figures." He discusses it when he returns in "Heavy Metal."
-->"Remember how you left me, Superman? Buried in rock?! I couldn't move. I couldn't see. I couldn't hear. But I could think, and all I thought about was how I was going to make you pay!"
* AttackItsWeakPoint: Disabling his Kryptonite core is usually the only way to stop him.
* BlessedWithSuck: He gets an immortal, super-strong body powered by Superman's biggest weakness...at the cost of all tactile sensation.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: The fake flesh on top of his metal skeleton lacks nipples.
* BrainUploading
* {{Cyborg}}
* EasyAmnesia: In "Action Figures" Metallo's time on the bottom of the ocean wiped his memories clean. He briefly becomes a hero to the inhabitants of a nearby volcano, until he remembers Superman.
* EvilBrit: He's played by Malcolm [=McDowell=].
* FauxAffablyEvil: He's often friendly and grinning, but he is usually assuming the pleasant persona to mock and insult his foes.
* JerkassVictim: His transformation into Metallo is entirely the result of Luthor ruining his life so as to manipulate him for his own ends, and his pain as he realizes how much becoming Metallo has cost him is geniune... but he's also a remorseless sociopath with who as hurt a lot of people, so the audience's sympathy for him is limited.
* MoralMyopia: So it's Superman's fault Lex Luthor poisoned you and transferred you to a lifeless body?
** MotiveDecay: See above.
* NighInvulnerable
* RoboticPsychopath
* SenseLossSadness: The inability to taste, smell or feel anything drives him to the edge in less than a day.
* SmugSnake
* SuperStrength
* [[spoiler:YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness]]

!! Livewire (Leslie Willis)
-->'''Voiced By:''' Lori Petty, Maria Canals Barrera

A Metropolis radio personality who built her career by bashing Superman on the airwaves. She finds herself suddenly possessing electrical-based superpowers after both she and Supes are struck by the same lightning bolt during a thunderstorm. Blaming him for her condition, she soon adopts the persona of "Livewire" and takes her Superman-bashing to a new, dangerous and shocking level. She later fights Batgirl and Supergirl in a crossover episode of [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]] and joins [[LegionOfDoom Grodd's Secret Society]] in ''Justice League Unlimited''.

* AbsoluteCleavage: She has a large lightning bolt-shaped slit that goes down to her belly button, although no cleavage is actually drawn.
* AchillesHeel[=/=]KryptoniteFactor: Livewire and water do not mix.
* AdaptationDieJob: In the tie-in comics, she temporarily loses her powers. While human again, she's a blonde - rather than the brunette she was in the show.
* AdaptationalHeroism: In both the tie-in comics and the mainstream comics she eventually becomes an ally, a stark contrast to her original animated incarnation who simply did things ForTheEvulz.
* AttentionWhore: A decent part of her characterization, especially in her first appearance. It's particularly obvious before her transformation.
* BadassBoast: "You can't stop me anymore than you can stop rain... wind... or LIGHTNING!"
* CanonImmigrant
* DumbassDJ: Before gaining her powers, she was a popular DJ who spent all her time insulting Superman in order to boost her ratings.
* ElementalBaggage: She works like a battery--she must absorb charge from other electricity sources to use her powers, and when that charge runs out she's [[BroughtDownToNormal normal]].
* FormFittingWardrobe: Livewire's outfit is created by ionizing the air around her, and she herself describes it as "form fitting."
* {{Goth}}: Dressed like one as a human.
* HeelFaceTurn: In the tie-in comics to the show, at least. After making the jump to the main DC Universe, she eventually turns good there as well.
* {{Jerkass}}: As a shock jock, it's sort of her thing. How much was an act and how much was her personality is unclear, but she seemed to believe what she was spouting.
* TheLadette
* {{Leitmotif}}: An electric guitar tune.
* LightningCanDoAnything: Passing through Superman first apparently means it can create metahumans. Applying the trope to Livewire specifically, she's able to do nonsensical things like dive into TV screens and then appear on them.
* LogicalWeakness: Water.
* NeverMyFault: Her transformation was due to her stupidity of hosting a concert ''in the middle of a storm'', Superman tried to get her to cancel it as she was both putting herself and the audience in danger. She wouldn't listen and got hit by lighting. She blamed Superman for the mess, mostly from seeing on TV a reporter interviewing Superman accusing that he deliberately didn't push Leslie out of the way when the lightning struck.
* OneLiner: ''Loves'' these. Makes sense given her past as a ShockJock.
* PsychoElectro
* PureEnergy: Livewire describes herself as such and, though it makes for a very interesting character, it does not make any more scientific sense than every other "energy being" out there. And, oddly enough, [[XRaySparks she apparently still has a skeleton]].
* SexySpectacles: Invoked this before her transformation. Getting struck by lightning seems to have improved her vision, however.
* ShockAndAwe: Gains electric powers [[LightningCanDoAnything after being struck by lightning]].
* ShockJock: Before getting her powers.
* StrawFeminist: At times.
* ThatManIsDead: "Meet [Leslie Willis's] replacement!"
* VaporWear: See AbsoluteCleavage.

!! Toyman (Winslow Schott, Jr.)
-->'''Voiced By:''' Bud Cort, Creator/CoreyBurton

Winslow Schott wanted nothing more in life than to make toys. Unfortunately, he had little money, and could only achieve his dream by taking a loan from gangster Bruno Mannheim. The toy company soon became a front for Intergang activities. When the police busted the operation, Mannheim let Winslow take the fall, and the kindly toymaker spent the rest of his life in prison. Now Schott's son seeks revenge, adopting the identity of Toyman and using a variety of deadly toy-themed weapons and [[DeathTrap death traps]] against the gangster and his mooks. Naturally, this attracts Superman's attention. He later joins the LegionOfDoom in ''Justice League Unlimited''.

* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: He sics a giant rubber duck on Mannheim in "Fun and Games" and a very large Rock-'Em-Sock-'Em Robot on Superman in "Obsession."
* CoolMask: Wears an eversmiling mask that he never removes.
* CreepyMonotone
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In the Static Shock crossover "Toys of the Hood", even though he had genuinely fallen in love with Darci enough to try and give her a new identity, he was always aware of betrayal, so he put in a fail safe that would destroy her.
* ExpressiveMask: Completely (and very creepily) averted.
* TheFaceless: Orphaned after his father dies in prison, Toyman becomes a toy-crazed supervillain, hiding his face behind a Howdy Doody-like mask. Schott is never seen without the mask, although it's frequently cracked and broken in his battles with Superman, and his fellow villains.
* FreudianExcuse: See ParentalAbandonment, below.
* GadgeteerGenius
* HappyFunBall: His specialty.
* KillerYoYo: Utterly owns Killer Frost with one of these in the penultimate episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]''.
--> [[BondOneLiner Awww... sleeper.]]
* MalevolentMaskedMen
* MonsterSobStory
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: Happens at the end of both of his ''Superman'' appearances.
* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: His father died penniless and he's never shown committing crimes for money, but he apparently has endless resources to pay for his tanks, helicopters, giant rubber ducks, and incredibly advanced robots.
* ParentalAbandonment: His dad (framed by the mob) died in prison, leaving him to be switched from one foster home to another.
* PsychopathicManchild: Goes straight UpToEleven.
* SlasherSmile: Painted onto his mask.
* StalkerWithACrush: In "Obsession".
* SympathyForTheDevil: Expressed for him by Lois.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: Killer Frost does this to him in "Alive".
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds

!! Luminus (Edward Lytener)
--> '''Voiced By:''' Robert Hays

Edward was an engineer at [=LexCorp=] who specialized in light and laser manipulation. He was a mole for Lois in one of her stories, and while Lois' work won her a journalism award, he was fired. In revenge, he tried to murder Lois, and [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption then Superman got involved.]] Lytener took up the persona of Luminus and decided to get his revenge on Superman. That failed too. Luminus is last seen fighting the WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague after a jail break.

* AffablyEvil: Even when making declarations of absolute hatred and murderous intent he's always so briskly, cheerfully polite. This continues after he becomes Luminus.
* BondVillainStupidity: You managed to [[BroughtDownToNormal weaken Superman to human strength]], Luminus. [[JustShootHim Just shoot him already]]. Don't toy with him until he breaks the machine weakening him.
* BrokeYourArmPunchingOutCthulhu: He enjoys fighting Superman because he can't wait to kill a god.
* DeathTrap: His specialty. Spent his debut episode trying to kill Lois Lane.
* {{Expy}}: Of Doctor Light. His pervyness is an interesting case of [[HilariousInHindsight hindsight hilarity]]. It's also probably just as well that he wasn't named Doctor Light, as it meant ''Justice League Unlimited'' could introduce Kimiyo Hoshi, the [[LegacyCharacter heroic Doctor Light]], without explanation.
* FightingAShadow: As Luminus, he never puts himself in the same place as Superman if he can send a hologram instead.
* ForTheEvulz: In his second appearance, Edward Lytener becomes the villain Luminus, just to get back at Superman.
* FrickinLaserBeams: He's good with light, so lasers aren't too far of a stretch.
* GadgeteerGenius
* HardLight: His other specialty. Turns out, lasers still hurt anyway.
* {{Hellevator}}: One of his death traps.
* {{Invisibility}}
* LightIsNotGood
* LoveMakesYouCrazy
* MasterOfIllusion
* MesACrowd: Similar to the {{Comicbook/Flash}} villain Mirror Master.
* MotiveDecay: Goes from being Lois's StalkerWithACrush to trying to kill Superman just because he can.
* NothingPersonal: Said this in his second appearance to Lois. He put her in a death trap again, but he insisted only as bait for Superman.
* SmugSnake
* StalkerWithACrush: He became TheMole against [=LexCorp=] because he liked Lois, not because it was the right thing to do.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: ''Lyte''ner?
* TookALevelInBadass: In his second appearance. He comes ''this close'' to killing Superman.
* VillainousBreakdown: Is so calm and calculating when he has a powerless Superman on the ropes. When the satellites key to powering the big guy down get blown up, however, he (understandably) becomes quite panicky and desperate.

!! Bruno Mannheim
--> '''Voiced By:''' Bruce Weitz

Bruno leads Metropolis's branch of Intergang, a major criminal syndicate. He soon gets weaponry from Apokolips, allowing him to deal with Superman and the local Police force. Eventually Superman and the Police team up and Mannheim is forced to flee to Apokolips, where he meets his new boss, Darkseid. Instead of killing him outright, Darkseid sends him back to Metropolis so he can overtake the nuclear power plant. [[spoiler: He then sets the reactor to overload, and Darkseid leaves him to die as the reactor goes critical.]]

* TheChewToy: And completely deserving it.
* DiscOneFinalBoss
* GenreSavvy: Kanto offers him the Apokolips weaponry for free. Bruno responds, "Free can be [[DealWithTheDevil very expensive...]]"
* {{Jerkass}}
* [[spoiler: KarmicDeath]]
* LensmanArmsRace: Cops? No problem. Superman? Apokolips weaponry. Superman + Cops? Flee and call in the Parademons!
* LesCollaborateurs
* SaveTheVillain: In his first appearance, he had to be saved from the Toyman.
* SmugSnake
* TheSyndicate: Leads one.
* [[spoiler: TooDumbToLive]]: Working for Darkseid, yeah, that can't go wrong!
* [[spoiler: YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness]]

!! Mercy Graves
--> '''Voiced By:''' Lisa Edelstein

* BattleButler
* BeleagueredAssistant: Poor girl has to constantly be on the move with a boss like Lex Luthor barking orders every two minutes.
* BodyguardBabes
* BodyguardCrush: [[AllLoveIsUnrequited Totally one-sided]] on her part, though.
* CanonImmigrant
* TheComicallySerious: Though she can be pretty snarky on occasions.
* DarkActionGirl
* TheDogBitesBack: Subverted first, as we're set up to think she'll turn on Lex for abandoning her to take the fall on one of his criminal deeds, but it turns out his hold on her is too strong. But she finally gets to do it for real in ''Justice League'' when he uses his prison call on her and she immediately hangs up. Then she goes right back to him two seasons later when he's "reformed" and running for President.
* TheDragon: To Lex Luthor.
* FriendsWithBenefits: While there's no real romantic feelings between the two, it's heavily implied (especially in ''Justice League'') that the two have more than a professional relationship going on. Their entire relationship oozes with emotionally oppressive relationship subtext and Lex all but spells out in "Tabusa Rasa" that they've been intimate on a regular basis.
* GirlFriday
* HiddenDepths: When Lex is exposed as a criminal, he names Mercy new head of LexCorp. She turns out to be a much better buisnessperson than Lex. As it so happens, cutting out Luthor's obsessive super-villain side-projects and selling off Luthor's anti-Superman resources has made LexCorp more profitable than ever. Luthor is rather nonplussed when he finds out.
* HypercompetentSidekick: She is way more level-headed than her boss, and she seems to be able to keep up with her boss's commands. Of course, we see that when she became head of LexCorp, she was much more successful than Luthor ever was.
* KickChick: Almost exclusively uses high kicks, except for her gun. She also wears a [[DangerouslyShortSkirt short mini-dress]] which almost always gives the viewer a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2pBJSh4J2Y great view of her legs]] even when she isn't fighting. [[MagicSkirt No]] {{Panty Shot}}s, though.
* MagicSkirt / [[ProperTightsWithASkirt Tights With A Skirt]]: She is always running around doing high kicks, being beaten up and sent flying by people, all in an outfit that looks more like a tight top than a full chauffeur's uniform.
* MsFanservice: Even moreso in ''Justice League'', to the point where the android (while channeling ChivalrousPervert Flash) hits on her.
* NinjaMaid: For Lex
* ServileSnarker
* SheFu
* ShesGotLegs: She wears a [[DangerouslyShortSkirt ridiculously short dress]] (or a tight shirt with tight pants) that shows off her legs.
* StatuesqueStunner

!! The Parasite (Rudy Jones)
--> '''Voiced By:''' Brion James, Brian George

Once an employee of S.T.A.R. Labs, Rudy was exposed to an experimental chemical compound that spilled on him when he tried to steal it. Now, as The Parasite, he possesses the power to absorb the energy, memories and physical abilities from anyone he touches, [[OhCrap including Superman]]. He later joins the LegionOfDoom.

* AchillesHeel / KryptoniteFactor: Gains the weaknesses of those whose powers he copies, usually with greater effect than the originals.
* AffablyEvil: Very amiable, though in this case it only serves to make him more creepy.
* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: "Two's a Crowd"
* CompositeCharacter: Of himself - between the Rudy Jones and Maxwell Jensen Parasites.
* DrunkWithPower: As a defining character trait. His main motivation is that his whole life people have been pushing him around and looking down on him, and now he wants as much power as he can for as long as he can... and enjoys using it to lord over others.
** That said, on a good day, he can be a relatively well-adjusted guy considering it all. He seems pretty satisfied with getting cable TV in his prison cell once he's captured.
*** Becomes FridgeBrilliance when you realize the trope. The more power he GETS, the more he wants.
* EvilerThanThou: Less so than Earl Garver, eviler than Livewire.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: Janitor to deadly supervillain.
* [[spoiler:KilledOffForReal: He's frozen and then blown up along with Grodd's other followers in "Alive!"]]
** [[spoiler:DroppedABridgeOnHim: Arguably the most prominent character to get this anti-climactic death.]]
* PowerParasite
* SplitPersonalityTakeover: Earl Garver takes control of Parasite after Parasite tries to absorb Garver's memories. Eventually, [[BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind the two of them duke it out for control of the body]].
* WhosLaughingNow
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: When Rudy Jones was first introduced his characterization was desperation instead of malevolence, and he stopped his partner when he tried to actually hurt people. However, after he became Parasite he became obsessed with draining anybody he could get his hands on and taking revenge on a world which hurt him.

!! Bizarro
--> '''Voiced By:''' Creator/TimDaly, Creator/GeorgeNewbern

An imperfect clone of Superman created by Luthor. He has almost all of Superman's strengths, but a damaged mind that leaves him unable to think clearly and understand that his actions are harmful. He truly wants to be a hero, but doesn't understand that he's actually hurting people. A while afterwards, Luthor lobotomizes and brainwashes him in order to be more evil and he becomes part of the LegionOfDoom.

* AntiVillain: His damaged mind means he really ''wants'' to be the good guy, but can't overcome the warped version of reality it's feeding him, or the fact that he DoesNotKnowHisOwnStrength. ''Justice League'' has this removed by having him lobotomized and brainwashed.
* AppropriatedAppellation
-->'''Mercy:''' ''Bizarro'' is what you "am".
* BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad: In ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', apparently due to being brainwashed.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: He becomes lobotomized to be his SilverAge comics incarnation in ''Justice League''.
* CloneDegeneration
* DumbMuscle
* ObliviouslyEvil
* ThereWasADoor: "Door" is one of many concepts he doesn't grasp. Like "ceiling."
* TragicMonster

!! Mister Mxyzptlk
--> '''Voiced By:''' GilbertGottfried

A pint-sized humanoid from another dimension who has decided to torment Superman with his powerful [[RealityWarper reality warping]] abilities merely for his own amusement. The only way Supes can effectively get rid of him is to trick him into saying, writing, or otherwise revealing his own name backwards. And even then, he's only gone for three months.

* AllMythsAreTrue: Claims to be the source behind genies, elves, and leprechauns.
* AmusingAlien
* CatchPhrase: "Aw, nuts."
* GreatGazoo
* {{Jerkass}}: This isn't your Silver Age well-meaning Mxy.
* LaserGuidedAmnesia: Can cause this. In general, whenever he uses his powers to BalefulPolymorph or otherwise alter someone, they don't remember anything that transpired after being changed back. The tie-in comics took this a step further by having everyone but Superman's memories of everything he does disappear after he leaves, which means no matter who many times he screws around with their lives everyone in Metropolis is totally unaware that he even exists.
* LaughablyEvil
* TheNapoleon
* NiceHat
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Myzyzptlk is tiny, bulbous and four-fingered. This may be a half-hearted attempt at AFormYouAreComfortableWith, or it could be LeaningOnTheFourthWall - he's entered a cartoon universe, so he takes on a cartoony appearance.
* RealityWarper
* SoreLoser
* SpaceJews
* TheTrickster
* UglyGuyHotWife

!!Lobo
--> '''Voiced By:''' Creator/BradGarrett

A trash-talking brute of an intergalactic bounty hunter who'll track down anyone and anything, as long as the price is right, and he'll have himself a literal blast while doing it.

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: And Maxima wanted him, at one point. Lois, Diana and Hawkgirl, not so much.
* AmusingInjuries: Receives these a lot. And finds the injuries of ''others'' amusing as well.
* {{Badass}}
* BadassBiker
** CoolBike: Doubles as a CoolSpaceship.
* BadassBoast
-->'''Lobo:''' The name's Lobo. That's "L" as in "lacerate", "O" as in "obliterate", "B" as in "disemBowel", and "O" as in... [[SubvertedTrope Um, er, I guess I can use "obliterate", twice, huh, what do you think?]]
* BatmanCanBreatheInSpace: And talk, too. No, don't ask how that works when nobody else in the DCAU can, it's RuleOfFunny.
* BoisterousBruiser: Naturally.
* BountyHunter
* GoshDangItToHeck: "Frag!"
* GunsAkimbo
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Since the show is intended for kids he's not allowed to do anything truly horrific, and comes across as mostly PlayedForLaughs instead. Though he rather casually admits that he blew up his home planet and everyone else on it.
* IncomingHam
-->'''Lobo:''' I'm givin' you geeks ten seconds before I frag everything in sight. One... TEN!
* {{Jerkass}}
* LastOfHisKind: Like Superman, unlike Superman however, he destroyed his own planet, making him the last of his kind.
* {{Leitmotif}}: A hair-metalesque electric guitar riff.
* NighInvulnerable: Almost Superman-level resistance to harm and no KryptoniteFactor to boot.
* PetTheDog: Although he doesn't actually ''mourn'' Superman in 'Hereafter,' the fact that he volunteers to ''do good'' - for ''free'' - is an uncharacteristic gesture of respect. Sadly, it isn't appreciated. Particularly not by Kalibak.
--> '''Lobo:''' Say it! ''Say it!''
--> '''Kalibak:''' [[CrowningMomentOfFunny ...Uncle.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: And with no pupils, to boot.
* SuperStrength
* TemptingFate: His "[[YouAndWhatArmy Whose gonna make me?]]" boast, which usually leads to appropriate trouble showing up. After the Preserver goes OneWingedAngel in response, he mentions he should probably quit saying it.
* TokenEvilTeammate: When it seemed like Superman was killed, Lobo filled in to quash the rioting in Metropolis. Not surprisingly this was a temporary arrangement.
* WhereIWasBornAndRazed: Provides the page quote.
* YouGotSpunk: Towards Lois.

!!Maxima
--> '''Voiced By:''' Sharon Lawrence

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: No one on planet Almerac is fond of her and there was a coup as soon as she went to Earth to bag Superman.
* AllAmazonsWantHercules[=/=]BestHerToBedHer: Maxima will only mate with a man who can equal her in combat.
* TheCaligula
* CoolSword
* DarkActionGirl
* FieryRedhead
* FlyingBrick
* HumanAliens
* MindOverMatter
* PsychicPowers
* RoyalBrat: She tends to throw tantrums when she doesn't ''instantly'' get her way.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: As queen of Almerac, she's only interested in doing what she wants to instead of doing what's best for her people.
* {{Tsundere}}
* VillainessesWantHeroes: She wanted Superman.
** AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Later, she wanted Lobo.
* {{Yandere}}

!!Sergeant Corey Mills
--> '''Voiced By:''' Creator/XanderBerkeley

* ByTheBookCop: Mills before he became the test subject for the power armor.

* DeadpanSnarker
* DistractedByTheSexy: She gains entry to a private party, and draws the eye of on-duty photographer Jimmy Olsen, through raw sex appeal.
* FieryRedhead
* FlyingFirepower
* LoveableRogue: At least in her first appearance.
* MotiveDecay: In her first appearance she's an {{Anti Villain}} who Superman forms a quasi-partnership with. Afterwards, she's just a random baddie.
