* CompleteMonster:
** [[BigBad The Thief of Souls]], known primarily by his identity [[SinisterMinister Reverend Dominic Darrk]], is the demonic and {{manipulative|Bastard}} mastermind behind all the evil in the series, seeking to pave the way for his master, Crisis, to invade Earth. After possessing a man, [[FateWorseThanDeath banishing his wife to Dreamland]], then corrupting their son into a sociopath like himself, the Thief sets up his [[ReligionOfEvil Church of Eternal Empowerment]], a {{cult}} that recruits its members through kidnapping, brainwashing, or threats of death. Along with regularly ordering assassinations and [[BadBoss executing his own minions]] for the [[YouHaveFailedMe slightest of failures]], the Thief unleashes monsters to rampage across entire cities more than once, and later releases a virus called the "Sleeping Death", which plunges its victims into neverending sleep while the Thief steals their souls to offer up to Crisis. In the end, even when beaten, the Thief happily taunts the heroes about the coming of his master, and the joy he will take in the knowledge that they will all spend an eternity of agony at Crisis' hands.
** [[GreaterScopeVillain Crisis]] himself is the force behind the Thief of Souls, and the most evil being the JLA encounter. Coming to Earth after attempting to [[YourSoulIsMine devour thousands of innocents' souls]], Crisis plans to turn the entirety of the universe into his personal playground by fusing the Dreamworld with Earth, then plunging every living thing in the universe into eternal pain and suffering. After brutally [[MindRape tormenting]] the heroes with their worst fears, Crisis manipulates his descendants Robin and Melana to betray their team, at which point Crisis hopes to eternally imprison them in a gemstone while he rampages across the universe, bringing death and destruction across the cosmos simply [[ForTheEvulz because he can]].
** [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Armando Guitez]] is the BigBad of the Franchise/WonderWoman story, and manages to stick out even among other far more powerful villains as a truly reprehensible monster. Using his wealth, Guitez begins tearing apart Mexican ruins looking for ancient and powerful runes, and threatens any nearby farmers off their land with death, ordering one beaten to death and shooting another in the head just for voicing their compaints against him. After murdering [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Judge Mendoza]] for displaying disgust at his crimes, Guitez plans to rape the man's daughter Maria before murdering her would-be rescuer, Steve Trevor. Guitez, finding the ancient runes he has been searching for, [[EvilMakesYouMonstrous absorbs the power of the demons residing within them]], travels to Los Angeles, crashes the plane he's on into a populated street, then goes on a massacre throughout the city for fun as he searches for other runes to make himself ever more powerful. Guitez's evil ran so deep, that [[EvenEvilHasStandards even one of the demons he absorbed proclaimed his shock at Guitez's sheer black soul]].
* HarsherInHindsight: Wayne Williams actually exists in real life, as in a man who was convicted for murder.
* HilariousInHindsight: Batman is a black man in this series, DC also created a universe where most of their heroes are black.
** Earlier than that Marvel gave Nighthawk (CaptainErsatz of Batman) a RaceLift for the [[Comicbook/SupremePower Squadron Supreme reboot series]].
* MoralEventHorizon: Lady Zakara rewards Zorgul with sex, but it's just a pretext to kill him. Then when he [[NoOneCouldHaveSurvivedThat survives it]], she pretends it was an accident. It just gets worse and worse.
** And Guitez, who first crosses the line by shooting Maria's father dead, and only gets worse when he plans to rape her, kills Steve Trevor, and bonds himself to the spirit of darkness to gain power for himself.
* WhatAnIdiot: ''Everyone'' in STEALTH takes this trope to an absolutely ridiculous level. [[BigBad Lady Zakara]] randomly kills her own men at the slightest provocation or failure, then tries to kill [[TheDragon Zorgul]] ''even though he has been effective and completely loyal so far'', and refuses to listen to a warning from one of her men until it's too late despite him insisting multiple times. Zorgul himself somehow buys it when she tells him his attempted murder was an accident. And the {{Mooks}} as a whole still accept to follow Zakara despite her proving several times [[BadBoss she is the worst boss ever]].
