Pantheon / GUAG Superhero Division

A subset of the Combat Division dedicated to the caped crusaders and spandex saviors. Metahuman or otherwise, they stand together to battle the forces of the GUAE. They are currently stationed in an advanced version of the Justice League Watchtower satellite mixed with Stark Industry Technology and all the comforts of the Avengers Mansion.

And no, there's no 'Superhero Registration' thing here. They've had enough bullshit with that previously. (Though this doesn't mean they don't have any rules. They will keep each other under control, but feel no compulsion to register the group with the governments. Besides, Cosmos says that actions speak louder than anything, so as long as they fight for good, she doesn't need to have their secret identities on record)

The Superhero Division is led on top by Captain America and Batman, who serve as commander and head strategist, respectively. Their field leader is none other than Superman. Batman also serves as the head monetary coordinator, along with Iron Man.

Clark Kent/Superman, God of Superheroes (Kal-El, The Man of Tomorrow, The Last Son of Krypton, The Man of Steel)
  • Greater God (Overdeity if near a blue star)
  • Symbol: A shield with an "S" on it.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason for Joining: For Truth, Justice, and the American Way!
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Good Guy leader. Loyalty given.
  • Threat level to Melkor: VERY High. By sheer power and experience alone, Supes is one of the biggest threats to Melkor's army, but he's also such an insanely determined and inspirational hero, it's hard for anyone to not be inspired to back him up. Oh, and if he's the last one standing? The threshold has been crossed, prepare for a beatdown. Also, any hero fighting by him KNOWS that Supes has his/her back, so they will be doubly determined to fight.

Peter Parker/Spider-Man, God of Everyman Heroes and Heroes with Bad Reputations (Spidey, Webhead)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Stylized spider
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Allies: Captain America, Superman, Iron Man
  • Opposes: Joe Quesada.
  • Reason for joining: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility. That, and he wants to demand that Joe Quesada retcons the horrid One More Day.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Cosmos considered Spidey's marriage with Mary Jane sacred and condemns Quesada's act for the Retcon due to personal reasons. Knowing that she's on his side, Spidey harbors strong loyalty to her.
  • Threat level to Melkor: High. Just because he doesn't have that much fancy powers compared to others… he's not to be taken lightly.
  • Acts as the GUAG Superhero Division's Toku Base liaison, since he was associated with them back in the Seventies.

Jean Grey-Summers, Goddess of Comicbook Death (Phoenix, Jeannie, Marvel Girl, Black Queen.) - IN EXILE
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: The X-Men logo
  • Alignment: Neutral Good, Chaotic Evil as Dark Phoenix
  • Reason for Joining: Teaming up with Spider-Man in her wrath against whoever it was that dropped a bridge on her.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Cosmos also condemns Quesada's acts for Jean's abrupt bridge-dropping, so Jean does like her.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: currently none.

Doctor Stephen Strange, God of Pure Sorcery, The Wizard Who Did It (Sorcerer Supreme, Master of the Mystic Arts)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: Ankh, the Eye of Agamotto
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reason for Joining: He wants to change things for the greater good, or at least defend them against the greater evil
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: He shares similar ideals with Cosmos, so they're fine
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High. Melkor knows what he's capable of.

Thor, God of Thunder (Thor Odinson, Donald Blake, Prince of Asgard)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His hammer Mjolnir
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Reason for Joining: Standing in to defend those threatened by those Evil Gods. Also, Melkor set his sights to Asgard, there's no way Thor is going to sit idly with it. Thor also has many friends amongst his fellow gods, and his loyalty to justice is only rivaled by his loyalty to his friends.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: FOOLS! It is folly to doubt the Odinson's loyalty to the cause of justice!! Away with thee!!!
  • Threat level to Melkor: VERY high. Thor's absolute intolerance of evil and determination to stomp it out are traits which are threatening in any opponent of the GUAE, but Thor backs it up with pure physical might, magic power rivaling the strongest gods in the pantheon, and sheer leadership and inspirational ability. An angry Thunder God screaming in rage and charging at you is a surefire sign that MANY other heroes will rally behind him as well.

Johnny Blaze/Ghost Rider, Keeper of Flames of Hell and God of the Death Glare (Spirit of Vengeance)
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His Flaming Skull for head.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Reason for Joining: The formation of GUAE means he'll have lots of jobs to do in making them see their sins.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Medium. The Ghost Rider works alone. And since Cosmos and the GUAG has rather little sins, he's okay with working with them (though he prefers solo missions)
  • Threat level to Melkor: High. Ghost Rider is a very powerful being and just getting on his eyes could prove to be dangerous.

Diana of Themiscyra/Wonder Woman, Goddess of Truth
  • Greater Goddess
  • Symbol: Double letter W, or golden eagle
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reason for Joining: To defend those that cannot defend themselves.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Hold Cosmos in high regard as a strong woman committed to justice. Loyalty high.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High.
  • Acts as liaison to the GUAG Magical Girl Sisterhood.

J'onn J'onnz/Martian Manhunter, God of Mars' Former Glory and Telepathy (John Jones, Fernus)

Saitama, God of Comically Invincible Heroes (One Punch Man, The Caped Baldy, Sensei [by Genos], Caillou Shippuden)
  • Greater God (but nearly everyone thinks/believes he's a Lesser God)
  • Symbol: His red right glove curled up like a closed fist
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reasons For Joining: He's a hero for fun.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: High. Though motivation to do hero work is another matter.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High. His speed and durability are insane, his punches can instantly kill any who stand in his way, and his unassuming appearance makes him be sorely underestimated (by most) until it's too late. His laziness prevents him from being any higher of a threat, though.

Genos, Patron Saint of Life Debts (Demon Cyborg, Modern Art)
  • Greater God
  • Alignment: Neutral Good (Previously Chaotic Neutral)
  • Reasons For Joining: Undying Loyalty to Saitama.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: High.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High. He has the raw power to incinerate many a foe, even though he hasn't been able to demonstrate much of this in canon. He does have a tendency to be reckless though, and can be rather…fragile compared to other gods on his rank.

Tony Stark/Iron Man, God of Personalized Mechanical Suits (Iron Man, Tony)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His armor, of course. Also the logo of Stark Industries.
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Sometimes Neutral Good, sometimes Lawful Evil)
  • Reason for Joining: To repent for the evils he committed during the Civil War and to continue his redemption for being an arms dealer.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Cosmos accepts his apology and helps him reclaim his enterprises, so he swore loyalty and agreed to stop being a pawn of the government.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Moderate. An impressive fighter, but there's only one of him and he won't share his technology.
  • He's liaison to the GUAG Robot War Division.

Doreen Green/Squirrel Girl, Goddess Of Funny Heroes (The Anti-Life, Slayer of All That Breathes)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: A squirrel
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good
  • Reason for Joining: Hey, she beat Dr. Doom, didn't she? What threat could Melkor possibly pose?
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Why not?
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Impossibly high, second only (and even then, possibly not even second) to Cosmos herself.

Ben and Gwen Tennyson, God and Goddess of Unintentional Familial Subtext
  • Intermediate together (Ben varies from Demigod to perhaps Overdeity depending on the alien he transforms into, and Gwen is a Greater Goddess in Anodite form)
  • Symbol: The Omnitrix (Ben); a spellbook (Gwen)
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good and Lawful Good, respectively
  • Reason for Joining: For Ben, it's to learn the secrets of and to gain control of the Omnitrix. For Gwen, it's to keep an eye on Ben.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: They're fine Cosmos as long as Grandpa Max is safe.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Low when they're alone. High when they're together.

Captain Planet, God of Nature (Our Hero)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: The Earth
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason for Joining: The GUAE is polluting nature, and he must stop them
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: High. Her forces oppose the destruction and filth the GUAE plan to leave in their wake.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Moderate. All Melkor needs is to throw a lot of pollution on him and Captain Planet will be down. Still, if there's no pollution, Captain Planet is powerful on his own.

Arthur Curry/Aquaman, God of Humanoid Merfolk (Orin)

Kara Zor-L of Earth Two/Power Girl, Goddess of Superheroine Breasts
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her chest through that infamous "boob window"
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reason for Joining: The Anti-Monitor, killer of her entire universe, is on the GUAE. For Kal-L, for Lois, for Jimmy, her worlds shall be avenged, and she must ensure that nobody else has to suffer the way she and hers had.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Fairly High
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High. He has lost many troops to her twin abilities of distraction.

James Howlett/Wolverine, God of Hand Claws and Character Publicity (Wolverine, Best There Is At What He Does, Wolvie, Logan, Huge Jackman)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His fist pointing upward with his Adamantium Claws extended.
  • Alignment: Chaotic Good, Chaotic Neutral in his first appearances.
  • Reason for Joining: The GUAE pissed him off.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Not comfortable fighting in a group with MAGNETO in it, but what the hell, Cosmos, Magneto, and himself want to kick the same ass, so though he's not much of team player, he told Cosmos he'd be willing to join so he could claw the GUAE to death.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: High. After all, he can heal himself from massive amounts of damage he's received.

Blackagar Boltagon/Black Bolt, God of Voice Weapons (King of the Inhumans)
  • Intermediate God
  • Symbol: His helmet on the Inhumans insignia.
  • Alignment: True Neutral
  • Reason for joining: The GUAE contains the likes of the Skrull or at least those who had the same mindset, and they threaten the Inhumans. As a King, Black Bolt must take action. Besides, fellow Illuminati Iron Man, Reed Richards and Doctor Strange have joined, thus he also joins in the fray.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Cosmos saved him from the hole that he created during his climatic battle against Vulcan, and had gently reprimanded him of how insane his plan could be, and promised him a way to achieve his goal without a plan that insane. Black Bolt is interested.
  • Threat level to Melkor: Moderate. Melkor would've put him in the 'Those hit with Badass Decay/Chickification List', but his inanely broken power is too dangerous to overlook.

Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk, God of Strong Transformations Caused by Anger

Dick Grayson/Nightwing and Tim Drake/Red Robin, Gods of Sidekicks
  • Lesser Gods
  • Symbol: A mix of blue Bird (Nightwing) and a yellow "R" with a black circle behind it (Tim).
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason for Joining: They're heroes, it's their job.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: See above. Also, Cosmos is the good guy leader. They'd be a hypocrite not to be loyal.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Medium - Low

Matt Murdock/Daredevil, God of Disability Superpowers (Daredevil, The Devil of Hell's Kitchen, The Man Without Fear)
  • Lesser God
  • Symbol: Two red Ds.
  • Allignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason for Joining: The forces of good need help.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: She hasn't treated him as any less capable as those without physical deformities, and respects his courage. He's rather loyal.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Medium.

Molly Hayes, Young Goddess of Powerhouse Children (Bruiser, Princess Powerful)
  • Lesser Goddess (with the physical strength of a Greater Goddess)
  • Symbol: A cute animal themed hat, of any choice.
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason for Joining: Upon hearing that her idol Wolverine, was part of the GUAG, she lost no time in order to join as well, just to meet him. Though even she no longer admires him as much as she did before meeting him, being a superheroine was always been a huge dream of hers and thus a good reason to stay.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Her past experiences made her not to place much trust on any adult or parental figure, but is willing to take orders from one for the greater good.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Medium. Melkor doesn't let her innocence fool him.

Shiera Hall/Hawkgirl, Goddess of Blunt Weaponry (Shayera Hol (nee Thal))
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: A Thanagarian Morning Star
  • Alignment: Lawful Good
  • Reason for joining: To fight the forces of evil... and to smash shit.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: A bit scornful of serving any god/dess (even though she is one), but at least Cosmos holds good in high regard and is not someone she minds helping out.
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Medium, but High to all magical members of the GUAE since her main weapon is made of Anti-Magic.

Clint Barton/Hawkeye (Goliath II, Ronin II, The Golden Archer) and Oliver Queen/Green Arrow (the Hood, Ollie, The Vigilante, The Arrow) Co-Gods of Archers

Nico Minoru Goddess of Goth Girls That Know Magic
  • Lesser Goddess
  • Symbol: Staff of One
  • Alignment: Neutral Good
  • Reasons For Joining: For one, she needs to keep an eye on Molly. And letting innocent people suffer at the hands of GUAE just isn't what she could keep a blind eye on.
  • Loyalty to Cosmos: Moderate. She is possibly even more distrusting of adults than Molly and has much more reasons to be disillusioned with them. On the other hand, she cannot help but be impressed by Cosmos's kind, motherly behavior
  • Threat Level to Melkor: Medium - she has potential to be a high level threat, since her Staff is extremely powerful, but she has yet to fully master that potential.
