Characters: I'm a Marvel... And I'm a DC
The heroes and villains of the randomverse:

Heroes

Superman

Spider-Man

  • Butt Monkey: The movie segments depict the other characters spiking his milkshakes to create some pretty whacked-out trailers. He eventually lampshades it.
    "What is it with all the free milkshakes lately?"
    • In the short where Batman argues with the Avengers over their 2012 movies, Spider-Man tries to promote his own, but no one listens to him at all, until he cheers for himself at the very end.
  • The Chick: In After Hours.
  • Constantly Curious: "Hey Bruce? What's in that pocket? ...And that pocket? ...And that pocket? And that pocket? And that pocket?"
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Determinator: Possibly even more so than in his actual comics! It took Batman revealing his past combined with Lance's brainwashing ability to take control of him, and even then the process was severely botched.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Towards Batman.
  • It's All My Fault: He blames himself heavily for losing Marvel's rights to Transformers as well as the screw-ups his own movies have.
    Spider-Man: (sobbing) It's all my fault!
    reboot!Spider-Man: (also sobbing) It's all my fault!
    Spider-Man: Bruce Campbell should be playing Mysterio!
    reboot!Spider-Man: What kind of end-credits Easter egg was that?!
    Spider-Man: IT'S ALL MY FAULT!
    reboot!Spider-Man: IT'S ALL MY FAULT!
    (The two repeat the last line, their voices becoming hilariously inelegant and incomprehensible)
    Batman: (facepalming) ...okay, just give it 10% of all you've got, Professor. 10%.
  • Red Oni: To Batman.
  • Sanity Slippage: He suffers this in the 7-year celebration, realizing that Sony will just keep rebooting him to hold onto the rights while the MCU rakes in billions.
  • Trauma Conga Line: Lampshaded by himself in Happy Hour.
  • "World of Cardboard" Speech: Which includes his Trauma Conga Line as mentioned above, to point out to the Joker that nothing will break his spirit no matter how hard anyone tries.

Batman

  • Blue Oni: Blue to the cast.
  • Broken Ace: In his own words, he's both an awe-inspiring crimefighter and one of the richest men in the world, yet he has absolutely nothing and can't imagine any future that doesn't involve him being alone.
  • Cannot Tell a Joke / The Comically Serious: In all the years Batman has been on the show, he hasn't made a single proper gag.
  • Crazy-Prepared
  • Dating Catwoman: Hinted at, as a running gag is the Meow Mix in his utility belt.
  • Deadpan Snarker: With more emphasis on the "deadpan".
  • Decoy Protagonist: In Zero Hour. With the speed and precision with which he takes control of the situation involving Lance's head, you could be mistaken for believing he's The Hero this time around. Turns out, he's a Supporting Leader.
  • Good Is Not Nice
  • Informed Loner: Played for laughs in the Sh*t Batman Says video.
    I don't need help.
    Thanks, Alfred.
    I work alone.
    Thanks, Dick. Thanks, Barbara. Thanks, Tim.
    I'm not a team player.
    Thanks, Justice League.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: There is the requisite Superman, who Batman refuses to let anyone else call a Boy Scout. The Randomverse adds Spiderman, who Batman complains about a lot but rescues even more.
  • The Lancer & The Smart Guy: To the point where Clark panics when he disappears in After Hours, and everyone panics when Lance randomly teleports him in Happy Hour.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: In "After Hours", Bruce is the first to revert to his World's Finest incarnation, going from grim to mild-mannered and kind mid-sentence. Superman and Spiderman are incredibly confused.
  • Only Sane Man: He is one of the few people that can put up with the antics of Deadpool.
  • Supporting Leader: In Zero Hour.
  • Team Dad: While Clark treats everyone as an equal part of the team, Batman rescues first and lectures later, particularly Spiderman (who is the youngest).
  • Warrior Poet: Waxes philosophical on the ethics of not revealing Spiderman's former marriage because it was Spiderman's choice as a Heroic Sacrifice to forget about it.
  • Warrior Therapist: Despite not being mentally sound himself (or possibly because of it), he tends to act as one.
    • While defusing a bomb strapped to the Green Goblin's crotch, Bruce attempts to give relationship advice and talk Gobby down from suicidal despair.
    • After Tony breaks into Wayne Manor to drown his sorrows after losing to The Dark Knight (in both senses), Bruce helps Tony regain confidence with a training montage set to Eye of the Tiger. Though Bruce is still angry when Tony destroys things.

Iron Man

The Incredible Hulk

Deadpool

Rorschach

  • Arbitrary Gun Power: When he gets shot by Joe Palachi, he is very much injured.
  • Blue Oni: To Deadpool.
  • Disney Death: At the end of Zero Hour.
  • Good Cop/Bad Cop: Deadpool makes him look like the Good Cop.
  • The Hero: In Rorschach and Deadpool.
  • Made of Iron: He's been shot by Deadpool, and he still got back up like it was nothing. Of course, Deadpool also made it clear he was aiming for just winging him.
  • Morality Chain: Deadpool essentially says he considers Rorschach to be this to him

Green Lantern

The Mighty Thor

Captain America

  • The Cape: Possibly even more so than Superman.
  • Captain Patriotic
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • 100% Adoration Rating: The other Avengers are very protective of their leader, and gang up on GL in a misplaced show of loyalty. When Cap demands to know why he's getting the special treatment:
    Thor: Thou art the only mortal I would follow into the gates of Hades.
    Tony: Steve, I know we've had our differences, but you're still the finest man I've ever known.
  • Nice Guy: Natch. Where Rorschach tries to deal with Deadpool's perpetual chattiness by shooting him, Cap gives Deadpool a cellphone with no one on the other end. The best part is that Cap's solution actually works.
    • Cap is remarkable in that he's the only character to date that hasn't taken criticisms against his movies personally and does his best to be impartial. When it came time for his movie to be squared off with Green Lantern's, the other Avengers were the ones who violently responded to the latter's criticisms on their leader's behalf. Cap was not impressed.
    • The trend continues with The Dark Knight Rises vs. The Avengers. Every Avenger lashes out at Batman except Captain America, who's trying to (unsuccessfully) calm everyone down.
  • Spirit Advisor: Act as this to Superman in After Hours.

Stan Lee

Wolverine

Villains

Lex Luthor

Lance M. Donovan

An Original Character introduced in After Hours. He's revealed as Lex Luthor's spy early on. Is a douche. As it turns out, he's a demi-android created through S.H.I.E.L.D. and Cadmus technology; designed to be so realistic that nobody could suspect him of being mechanical. Most of the plots revolve around him in some way. Dude.

  • ApocalypseDude: In Happy Hour, and Zero Hour.
  • Flat Character: His personality consists almost entirely of saying "Dude" and "Dude. Sucks" to passers-by. Invoked by Lex Luthor, as Lance was designed to be the last person anyone would ever want to talk to or suspect of anything intelligent.
  • Living MacGuffin: In every season.
  • Meaningful Name: As the Nick Furys eventually realise, Lance M. Donovan is a Life Model Decoy, a type of android from the Marvel Universe but enhanced with Project Cadmus technology from the DC Universe.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity
  • Verbal Tic: "Dude" and "Dude. Sucks."

Lars M. Dusseldorf

Dubbed "Lance 2.0", Lars serves as a replacement for Lance after he is teleported to Apokolips.

The Joker

The Green Goblin

Harley Quinn

Doctor Doom

  • Always Someone Better: Despises Lex Luthor for always being a step above himself. Despite this, there are some hints that Luthor's also his Worthy Opponent.
  • Body Horror: Aside from the scars, of course: After Polachi!Joker uses Apokoliptian technology on Doom to transform him (along with Venom, Sabretooth, Two-Face and Mr. Freeze) into one of the horrific monsters seen in the future timeline. He gets better, though.
  • Enemy Mine: He gives Batman the handlink that ultimately leads to Luthor's defeat.
  • Evil Genius: Of course.
  • Outgambitted: By Luthor and the Joker during After Hours and then again by Luthor in Zero Hour.
  • Worthy Opponent: Possibly Luthor. He does admit that he'll never defeat Lex unless he matches his technology.

Darkseid

  • A God Am I: Deconstructed, given that it's all in his head (since in reality he's just a comic book villain). He's still an extremely powerful being in-universe, however.
  • Big Bad: In Zero Hour.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Crosses this when Deadpool reveals the limited nature of Darkseid's existence.
  • Eviler than Thou: He vaporized The Joker.
  • Evil Overlord: Kinda obvious.
  • Evil Plan: His is to reveal to the heroes of the multiverse that their existence is meaningless, and their lives can be entirely changed on the whim of the executives if they so desire. Thus, they would lose all will to fight—this is, in Darkseid's eyes, the true Anti-Life Equation.
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Eye Beams: The Omega Beams.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: It's Darkseid. Did you expect anything less?
  • Tomato in the Mirror: He doesn't realise that he's a fictional character. When the Joker gleefully tells him otherwise, he doesn't take it very well.
  • The Stinger: His appearance at the very end of Happy Hour.
  • Villainous Breakdown: While being revealed as a comic character let him plan out a means of taking over the universe, being revealed as a toy in ItsJustSomeRandomGuy's youtube channel broke him.
