He notes that the longer he lives, the more slowly he seems to age.²* PowerCreepPowerSeep: His power levels are inconsistent between his Superboy and early Superman periods.²* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Justified. At one point he scoured the universe looking for a cure for cancer, but he couldn't find any that were compatible with human physiology.²* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: The death of his family triggered this in Kal-El, as he sought to bring Ultra!Lex to justice.²* SecondLove: ²** In the "canon" ''Generations'' universe, he falls for Lana Lang, who turns out to have been immortal and superpowered all along.²** In the alternate universe of ''Generations III'', he falls for Beautiful Dreamer of the New Gods, and starts a family with her. Then they all get killed.²* SkunkStripe: Eventually appears with this in the 1980s, when he no longer needed to disguise himself as Clark Kent after his alternate identity had been exposed.²* SuperpowerLottery: Just like his mainstream Silver Age version.²²!!Lois Lane²²Superman's first wife.²²* BaldWoman: That's what chemo can do.²* DamselInDistress: In the 1939 tale when Ultra's henchmen catch her poking around the Metropolis World's Fair. [[DownplayedTrope She wasn't captured easily but it happened.]]²* DefiantToTheEnd: Tells Luthor he won't get away with it one last time.²* NeckSnap: How she died at the hands of Ultra!Lex.²* SmokingIsNotCool: In the early decades of the story, she's often seen with a cigarette in hand. By 1969, she's diagnosed with lung cancer, and by 1979, she's on death's door. Thankfully, that wonderful Dr. [[SignificantAnagram Holurt]] has taken over her treatment.²²!!Lana Lang²[[quoteright:350:]] ² ²Superman's second wife.²²* TheAgeless: Becomes this when the culmination of spells and weirdness she's been exposed to all her life grant her immortality.²* {{Flight}}: It's not really clear just what the extent of her powers are, but she has this one, at least.²* HotWitch: Becomes this through the use of Merlin's staff, and gained (at least) magic-powered immortality and flight thanks to all the mystical stuff she messed with as a kid.²* IWillWaitForYou: Waited seven hundred years for Clark. Yowza.²* OlderThanTheyLook: In 2919, she's over a thousand years old, and looks maybe thirty at most.²* RedheadInGreen: Wears a flowing green outfit after taking Merlin's staff, and her suit in the future has green accents as well as a green cape.²* SecondLove: For Clark.²²!!Supergirl (Kara Kent)²[[quoteright:350:]] ²²The daughter of Kal-El and Lois Lane, and the first wife of Bruce Wayne, Jr.²²* CainAndAbel: The Abel to Joel's Cain.²* ClarkKenting: Inverted: she wears a brunette wig as Supergirl.²* TheEmpath: Has a psychic link with Stephanie Trevor, having been born at virtually the same time she was.²* {{Flight}}: Extrapolating from her nephew, her top speed is over a ''billion'' miles per hour. But judging from her dad, this may be low-balling it.²* HalfHumanHybrid: Yup, and half as powerful as her father. But, as she notes, half of infinity is still infinite.²* HybridPower: Vulnerable to Kryptonite, but not as much as her dad.²* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Her brother Joel killed her by punching right through her chest.²* KidHero: One of the founding members of the Justice League of America, at about 11 or 12.²* SuperpowerLottery: Just like her dad, except, again, half as strong.²²!!Joel Kent²[[quoteright:320:]] ² ²The son of Kal-El and Lois Lane. Married Mei-Lai Kent and fathered Clark Wayne, who was adopted by Bruce Wayne Jr.²²* BlessedWithSuck: The formula that Ultra!Lex gave him that would give him superpowers would also end up killing him.²* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Kara's Abel.²* CassandraTruth: Refused to believe his father when he said that any formula that would give someone Kryptonian powers would be fatal.²* HalfHumanHybrid: And even though he was born without powers thanks to Gold Kryptonite, it turns out he can still pass them on.²* HorribleJudgeOfCharacter: Swallowed every lie Luthor fed him without question. But then, he was only about ten or so when Luthor started brainwashing him.²* IgnoredEpiphany: Claims that at the very last moment he felt hesitation toward killing his sister, as though he didn't really want to.²* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: His GlorySeeker ways and abuse of authority were obvious overcompensations for being born powerless.²* LockedOutOfTheLoop: His family figured that the best way for him to grow up mentally healthy would be to keep him from finding out that his father was Superman. Luthor spoiled that.²* MuggleBornOfMages: Born the only child of the couple without superpowers, but only because he was prenatally exposed to Gold Kryptonite by Lex Luthor (who secretly was the Ultra Humanite).²* TheNeidermeyer: Gets shot by his own troops in Vietnam after they lay waste to a village of innocent civilians. Is later brought back to health by his future wife Mei-Lai.²* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Hey, now, just because you've been deceived into despising your sister with every fiber of your being and are about rip her heart out of her chest is no reason to claim that a female could never be your father's equal, Joel! Shame on you! Shame!²* PoweredArmor: Averted. Seems to wear this in order to masquerade as Luthor, but [[SuperSerum it's all him]].²* RescueRomance: Falls for Mei-Lai after she saves his life.²* RevengeBeforeReason: Mei-Lai asks him to set aside his hatred for his family and live in peace, but he just can't do it.²* SuperiorSuccessor: "Luthumanite" convinced Joel that Clark exposed him to Gold Kryptonite as an infant so that he wouldn't become one of these and overshadow his father.²* TragicVillain: Let's see...Born the powerless son of the most powerful hero on earth, due to the machinations of his father's archenemy? Check. Deceived his entire life into hating his family by said archenemy? Check. Grows up into a miserable [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]] and gets fragged and left for dead by his troops? Check. Accomplice to the murder of his mother? Check. Takes a SuperSerum that allows him to murder his superpowered sister with his bare hands? Check. The serum's poisonous and the last thing he sees before his dies is his father's archenemy gloating about how he tricked him? Check! Bonus: He leaves a wife and son behind.²* TheUnfavorite: Perceived himself to be this.²* WeddingSmashers: Interrupts the reception following Bruce Jr. and Kara's wedding so that he could kill his sister.²* YourDaysAreNumbered: The SuperSerum Luthumanite concocted killed him in five hours, just as planned.²²!!Mei-Lai Kent²²The wife of Joel Kent, the second wife of Bruce Wayne, Jr., and the mother of Clark Wayne.²²* AsianBabymama: Joel's.²* MoralityPet: To Joel and Bruce Jr.²* NiceGirl: Nursed the man who ordered the massacre of her village back to health.²* SecondLove: For Bruce Jr.²* WomenAreWiser: A gentle, grounded counterpart to Joel and later Bruce Jr.²²!!Supergirl Red (Lois Wayne)²[[quoteright:350:]] ² ²One of the twin daughters of Clark Wayne and Amanda Mason.²²* {{Flight}}: Extrapolating from her dad's top speed, she can hit about 280 million miles an hour.²* HybridPower: A chunk of Green Kryptonite can't kill Lara and Lois, but it still ''really'' hurts. It took extremely concentrated Green K radiation to kill her.²* NotGrowingUpSucks: In the alternate timeline of ''Generations III'', both she and her sister are frozen at about the age of eleven by Lex Luthor's first blackout bomb. She doesn't seem to mind it as much as Lara, though.²* OlderThanTheyLook: Kryptonians age more slowly the older they get, but in addition to this, she got stuck at about eleven thanks to Lex Luthor's blackout bomb, and stayed that way 'til she died.²* SuperpowerLottery: All the powers of a Kryptonian, but only at one-eighth strength. That still adds up to powers and abilities '''far''' beyond those of mortal men.²* TalkingWithSigns: Since the Kryptonian wheelhouse doesn't include telepathy, she her sister and their dad have come up with their own sign language in order to communicate in space.²* UnevenHybrid: One-eighth Kryptonian.²²!!Supergirl Blue (Lara Wayne)²[[quoteright:299:]] ²²One of the twin daughters of Clark Wayne and Amanda Mason.²²* AntiHero: After everything she's been through she has a somewhat darker outlook than most.²* DePower: Exposed herself to Gold Kryptonite in the hope that stripping her powers away would somehow allow her to age properly again. It worked, but the man she loved got trapped in a situation only Supergirl could've saved him from and died.²* DisabilitySuperpower: Not a very fun one. Since she was de-powered when Luthor blanketed the world in massively concentrated Green K radiation, she survived while her father and sister died in front of her.²* {{Flight}}: Extrapolating from her dad's top speed, she can hit about 280 million miles an hour.²* GuiltFreeExterminationWar: Invoked. After learning that Darkseid had created a new breed of parademons capable of individual thought and personality, she killed the parademon she learned this from in order to ensure the war against them stayed this way for the others.²* HotBlooded: One of the Wayne family in-jokes is that she's got a bad temper.²* HybridPower: A chunk of Green Kryptonite can't kill Lara and Lois, but it still ''really'' hurts.²* MayDecemberRomance: A couple of really odd versions, in the alternate timeline from ''Generations III''.²** At the age of roughly four hundred, she falls for an alien named Ator who's about fifty and the equivalent of an earth teenager. He has feelings for her, but she's still physically eleven years old, so he can't act upon them.²** After exposing herself to Gold K and aging to adulthood, she Bruce Wayne fall in love.²* MuggleBornOfMages: Her son with Bruce was born without any Kryptonian abilities whatsoever, and aged normally until death. In-universe speculation is that the Gold K exposure may have messed her genes up somehow, but the blackout bomb exposure could have had something to do with it, as well.²* NoSell: Somehow, losing her powers and gaining them back made her completely immune to Kryptonite.²* NotBloodRelated: Bruce Wayne's adoptive great-granddaughter. They eventually marry.²* NotGrowingUpSucks: In the alternate timeline of ''Generations III'', both she and her sister are frozen at about the age of eleven by Lex Luthor's first blackout bomb, leaving her in the fun position of being four hundred years old, perpetually prepubescent, and deeply in love with someone who was physically in his late teens for his race.²* OlderThanTheyLook: Kryptonians age more slowly the older they get, but in addition to this, she got stuck at about eleven thanks to Lex Luthor's blackout bomb for four hundred years, aged into adulthood after exposing herself to Gold K, and then started aging like a Kryptonian again after drinking SuperSerum.²* OutlivingOnesOffspring: Thomas, her son with Bruce, was completely human while she aged like a Kryptonian.²* PregnantBadass: Fought while pregnant with the child of herself and Bruce.²* SkunkStripe: Gains one over the centuries, but doesn't appreciably age otherwise.²* SuperpowerLottery: All the powers of a Kryptonian, but only at one-eighth strength, just like her sister. This is still more than strong enough to make her one of the premier superheroes of her era.²* TalkingWithSigns: Since the Kryptonian wheelhouse doesn't include telepathy, she her sister and their dad have come up with their own sign language in order to communicate in space.²* UnevenHybrid: One-eighth Kryptonian.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Batman Family]]²²!!Batman I/Robin I/Flying Fox (Bruce Wayne)²[[quoteright:309:]] ² ²Debuted as the first Robin in 1929, became Batman in 1939. Married to his first wife in 1949, through which he fathered his son Bruce Wayne Jr. Retired from being Batman after 1959, only to resume the mantle in 1999 after turning Ra's al-Ghul's underground empire into a humanitarian organization.²²* BadassNormal: Did you expect anything else?²* BigGood: Turns into this when he takes over Ra's al Ghul's underground criminal empire, turning it into a legitimate organization.²* CoolOldGuy: Even before he took a dip in the Lazarus Pit, he was still able to kick some serious ass.²* EmpoweredBadassNormal: ²** Well, okay, if you want to be technical, his aging gets drastically slowed at one point. But that's the only "power" he's got...²** least in the normal timeline. in the alternate timeline of ''Generations III'', he and Lara discover that Superman's SuperSerum, which normally kills anyone with pure human blood, works just fine on immortal humans. As a bonus, since he's not Kryptonian, Kryptonite doesn't work on him.²* Fiction500: In 1939, he's the world's seventh richest man. By 1979, he's the fourth. Shortly after this, he adds Ra's Al-Ghul's immeasurable holdings to his wealth.²* FountainOfYouth: Restored to the prime of his youth by immersing himself with Ra's al-Ghul in the Lazarus Pit, while also gaining immortality.²* IdentityImpersonator: Impersonated Superman in 1949 to help him rescue Lois Lane from Lex Luthor and the Joker.²* MoralityPet: It's noted that Batman cleans up his [[TheCowl act]] after he takes Robin on as a sidekick, and Alfred points out that adopting Dick helped Bruce calm his demons.²* NoPlaceForMeThere: Just like Superman.²* OlderThanTheyLook: ²** Ages only one year for every 100 years after he was immersed in the Lazarus Pit.²** In the ''Generations III'' alternate timeline, you can add [[SuperSerum Kryptonian]] slowed-aging-over-time to that.²* OutlivingOnesOffspring: In Generation III's alternate timeline, he outlives his son by Lara Kent, who was born completely human.²* SecondLove: In the alternate universe presented in ''Generations III'', he hooks up with Wonder Woman at some point in the 23rd century. It lasts until she decides she wants to return to Themyscira over a hundred years later.²* SkunkStripe: Obtained this both through normal aging and also through slowed-down aging after his immersion in the Lazarus Pit.²²!!Batman II/Robin II (Dick Grayson)²[[quoteright:320:]] ²²Bruce Wayne's legal ward, who became the second Robin until 1949. Was the second Batman until he was killed by the Joker in 1969.²²* BadassNormal: Didn't get any fun powers 'til after he was a ghost.²* IdentityImpersonator: Impersonated Superman in 1949 to help him rescue Lois Lane from Lex Luthor and the Joker.²* KidHero: As in mainstream comics. In ''this'' universe, though, he started a little earlier, when he saved Bruce Wayne from a couple of thugs.²* MindRape: After he died he tried to MindRape the Joker to death.²* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Following his death, his ghost starts attacking the Joker's mind, in a fashion interpreted as one of these.²* OfficialCouple: With Batgirl, cut off by his untimely death.²* RevengeBeforeReason: After death he tried to vengefully kill the Joker, putting his very soul at risk.²* ThouShaltNotKill: As a ghost, his desire for vengeance overcomes his reason, and he psychically attacks the elderly Joker's mind in order to kill him. Alfred manages to pull him back from the brink, reminding him that he's not a murderer and literally saving his soul.²* UnfinishedBusiness: After his death, he torments the Joker as a ghost, until the spirit of Alfred persuades him to let his hatred go and pass on.²²!!Batman III/Robin III (Bruce Wayne Jr.)²[[quoteright:315:]] ² ²The son of Bruce Wayne and his first wife, he first became the third Robin, then took over as the third Batman in 1969. Was briefly married to Kara Kent in 1979, then married Mei-Lai Kent and adopted her son, naming him Clark Wayne.²²* AntiHero: Owing primarily to his unresolved rage over his first wife's murder.²* BadassNormal: He's Batman, son of Batman, adoptive brother of Batman, adoptive father of Knight-Wing. [[EmpoweredBadassNormal Okay, three out of four.]]²* TheCowl: Moreso than even his father, the original Batman, after Kara's death. ²* DraftDodging: Would have averted this trope if it weren't for the death of his partner Dick Grayson at the hands of the Joker.²* EvilCostumeSwitch: Anti-heroic, anyway, as after the death of his wife he adopted a even darker, armored version of his father's costume, to match his grim attitude.²* HeroicBSOD: Has one at the time of his first wife's murder.²* IdentityImpersonator: When his partner Dick Grayson (the second Batman) was killed by the Joker, Bruce Jr. donned a spare Batsuit and dressed Dick in his Robin costume so that nobody would know that the Joker killed Batman.²* KidHero: One of the founding members of the Justice League of America, at about 13 or 14, and of course as Robin.²* LoopholeAbuse: Teamed up with Supergirl as Robin in 1964 when his mother forbade him to team up with Dick Grayson (as Batman).²* MoralityPet: Mei-Lei and later young Clark as Robin become this for him, helping him reorient himself after the death of his wife.²* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Inflicts one on Alan Scott after the JLA turns on him.²* SecondLove: After adopting Joel Kent's son, Clark, he falls for Mei-Lai as Joel did.²* TookALevelInJerkass: After Kara's death he develops a loner attitude and violent streak that turn the police of Gotham against him, and put him at odds with his JLA teammates.²* WhatHaveIBecome: Slips into hardcore anti-heroism after the death of Kara, and realizes how far gone he is after he nearly beats Alan Scott to death.²* WidowedAtTheWedding: His first wife Kara Kent was all too soon killed by her brother Joel.²²!!Mrs. Wayne²[[quoteright:167:]] ² ²It's deliberately unclear who Bruce married, but she's the mother of Bruce Wayne Jr.²²* BatmanGambit: Tricks Bruce Jr. into using the Lazarus Pit to youthen himself with one of these.²* FantasyForbiddingMother: Didn't want Bruce Jr. to become Robin until he was eighteen, and never forgives Dick for allowing him to do so at about thirteen instead. It also drives a wedge between her and Bruce Sr.²* RejectedApology: As mentioned, Dick goes to the grave without her forgiving him for taking Bruce Jr. on so early.²* TheUnreveal: It's easier to guess who she's ''not''.²²!!Alfred Pennyworth²²The Waynes' butler, who lived until 1967 and then after death became a guardian ghost until 1975.²²* HelpfulHallucination: Bruce occasionally sees him after his death, though he thinks he might just be one of these.²* HeroicSacrifice: Saving Dick meant passing on and no longer existing in this world even as a ghost. He didn't even hesitate.²* UnfinishedBusiness: Continued looking after Bruce following his death, until he was called upon to help Dick Grayson's troubled soul find rest. They passed on together.²²!!Batgirl (Barbara Gordon)²[[quoteright:216:]] ² ²The daughter of Tony Gordon, the son of James Gordon. She was Dick Grayson's partner in the 1960s when he was Batman. She later becomes President of the United States in the late 1990s.²²* OfficialCouple: With Dick until his death.²²!!Knight-Wing/Robin IV (Clark Wayne)²[[quoteright:216:]] ² ²The son of Joel and Mei-Lai Kent, he was adopted by Bruce Wayne Jr. and became the fourth Robin before choosing his own identity as Knight-Wing.²²* BilingualBackfire: At first, his parents could keep secrets from him by speaking in Vietnamese. Then he met a kid in school who could speak it too. That's how he learned Bruce Jr. wasn't his real father.²* DatingCatwoman: Defeated Amanda Mason aka Ransak II in 1997, regularly visited her in prison and married her in 2008, after she was released.²* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Though he was the grandson of Superman, he was born with that side of his heritage dormant. As a normal, well-trained human, he spent over a decade as Bruce Jr.'s Robin before becoming becoming Knight-Wing. And then he drank Superman's improved SuperSerum...²* {{Flight}}: This seems to be the power that lowers the most quickly over the generations, but apparently at top speed it still only takes him roughly fifteen minutes to get from Mars to Earth. That's 560 million miles an hour!²* HappilyAdopted: To Bruce Wayne Jr.²* HybridPower: One firm advantage he has over his grandfather is that Kryptonite takes a long time to damage him, though it does hurt terribly.²* LegacyImmortality: Averted by him. He refused to become Batman, believing that only a true-blooded Wayne can become Batman. He does in ''Generations III'' become Superman, but he expresses disquiet about it.²* LockedIntoStrangeness: In ''Generations III'', his hair goes stark white after being at the epicenter of Luthor's strange blackout bomb.²* LockedOutOfTheLoop: For a few years, Bruce Jr. felt the best way to raise him would be to keep him finding out about his true father, and to hide his identity as Batman from him. Obviously, he changed his mind.²* MoralityPet: ²** To Joel Kent, as he and his mother Mei-Lai are the only characters to elicit any real tenderness from him.²** Much like the first Robin, working alongside his adoptive son helps Bruce Jr. put his demons to rest.²* OlderThanTheyLook: Starts aging more slowly after his Kryptonian powers are awakened.²* SuperpowerLottery: All the powers of a Kryptonian, but only at quarter-strength...his granddaddy's the Silver Age shove-a-planet-around-Superman, though, so that's nothing to sneeze at.²* TalkingWithSigns: Since the Kryptonian wheelhouse doesn't include telepathy, he and his daughters have come up with their own sign language in order to communicate in space.²* UnevenHybrid: One-quarter Kryptonian. He can ''still'' see over a hundred light-years away once he gets his powers.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Wonder Woman Family]]²²!!Franchise/WonderWoman I/ComicBook/WonderGirl I (Princess Diana)²²Debuted as the first Wonder Woman during World War II. She married ComicBook/SteveTrevor and had a daughter with him named Stephanie Trevor.²²* GadgeteerGenius: Invented the "purple ray", a powerful healing device that can even bring back the recently dead.²* OffingTheOffspring: Her daughter fell in battle, and though the Supergirls got her into a stasis chamber as quickly as possible (the fight was still going on), her brain was too far gone for even the purple rays to save her. Diana implicitly gave her brain-dead daughter a MercyKill as a result.²* OutlivingOnesOffspring: As mentioned above.²* SecondLove: She and Batman hook up for about a hundred years.²²!!Wonder Woman II/Wonder Girl II (Stephanie Trevor)²[[quoteright:245:]] ² ²The daughter of Steve and Diana Trevor.²²* AdaptationNameChange: Diana and Steve have had a heroic daughter in other continuities, though as Steve didn't die prior to her birth her previous incarnations were named after Hippolyta instead and used the hero name Fury instead of Wonder Woman.²* TheAgeless: Looks about the same after her TimeTravel adventure.²* BroughtDownToBadass: Inherited her mother's vulnerability to having her hands bound by a man. She's still a masterful fighter, however.²* DeadGuyJunior: Named after her father Steve Trevor.²* DominoMask: Her Wonder Girl/Wonder Woman mask.²* TheEmpath: Shares a psychic link to Kara that enables her to sense whatever pain she's feeling.²* {{Flight}}: This version of Wonder Woman can't fly on her own, but Stephanie has the Winged Sandals of Hermes.²* HalfHumanHybrid: Half-human/Half-uh, divinely-animated clay sculpture? Only half as powerful as her mother, but certainly well above a normal human, physically.²* KidHero: One of the founding members of the Justice League of America, as a young teen or tween.²* OneWomanArmy: Took out two hundred parademons before she fell in battle.²* TimeTravel: After the JLA beat Tempus, she was displaced in time to ancient Greece for a thousand years from her perspective and three from her friends'.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Green Lanterns]]²²!!Green Lantern I (Alan Scott)²²Debuted as the first Green Lantern during World War II.²²* OlderThanTheyLook: Used his ring to suspend his aging. It's mentioned that the effort of doing this is taking a toll on his overall health.²* WeaksauceWeakness: As with his mainstream counterpart, his ring doesn't work on wood.²²!!Green Lantern II (Kyle Rayner)²²Alan Scott's first successor as Green Lantern.²²* InadequateInheritor: Alan asked his ring to choose as worthy successor and its first choice was Hal Jordan, who felt he could do more good with his political career. Alan then chose Kyle Rayner based upon a recommendation from the Flash. Averted, though, in that Kyle did a fine job in the role regardless. He just ain't no Hal Jordan, as events come to prove.²* OfficialCouple: Exchanges some lovey-dovey talk with Flash IV.²* WeaksauceWeakness: Believed the Guardians when they said his ring was ineffective against yellow (and so it was).²²!!Green Lantern III (Hal Jordan)²²Alan Scott's first choice as his successor, he eventually took up the mantle when Sinestro was hunting down all Green Lanterns.²²* DisneyVillainDeath: Falls straight out of the sky when Luthor's blackout bomb deactivates his ring.²* FountainOfYouth: The Green Lantern ring restores Hal to the prime of his youth.²* RefusedTheCall: At first to become a politician.²* SuperiorSuccessor: Regarded as the greatest Green Lantern of them all, even a thousand years in the future.²* YourMindMakesItReal: Was able to overcome the weaknesses of the Green Lantern ring because they were psychosomatic.²²!!Green Lantern of the 30th Century (Jordan Kelley)²[[quoteright:350:]] ²²* AffirmativeActionLegacy: Technically, he's the second black Green Lantern that we ''know'' of (he mentions his father), but there certainly could have been more by the 30th Century.²* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: His father was also a Green Lantern and named him after the greatest Lantern of all.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Flash Family]]²²!!Flash I (Jay Garrick)²²Debuted as the Flash during World War II.²²!!Flash II (Barry Allen)²[[quoteright:202:]] ² ²Became the mentor of Wally West, the first Kid Flash, and the father of Carrie Allen, the second Kid Flash.²²!!Kid Flash I (Wally West)²[[quoteright:226:]] ² ²The father of Jay West, who became the fifth Flash.²²* KidHero: One of the founding members of the Justice League of America, as a young teen or tween.²²!!Flash IV/Kid Flash II (Carrie Allen)²[[quoteright:206:]] ² ²The daughter of Barry Allen.²²* HotBlooded: Very rash and impulsive, which leads to Bruce Jr. defeating her handily.²* OfficialCouple: Exchanges some lovey-dovey talk with Green Lantern II.²²!!Flash V (Jay West)²²The son of Wally and Magda West.²[[quoteright:133:]] ²²* SketchySuccessor: Only a fraction as fast as the Flashes before him, yet still the fastest man of his generation.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Other Heroes]]²²!!Black-Hawk (Janet Hall)²[[quoteright:256:]] ² ²A WingedHumanoid modeled after the original Hawkman.²²* CarryABigStick: Her sonic mace.²* FieryRedhead: Eagerly charges into battle, and is frank about her antagonism toward Hal Jordan.²* {{Flight}}: Without it, she'd just be a violent chick with a mace and a set of fake wings, so yes.²* LegacyCharacter: Granddaughter of both ComicBook/Blackhawk and Carter Hall. ²* SonicStunner: Or maybe MakeMeWannaShout or {{Vibroweapon}}? She wields something called a sonic mace, about which we receive little information.²* TeethClenchedTeamwork: For some reason she's never seen eye-to-eye with Hal Jordan.²²!!Cyborg (Victor Stone)²²* AnArmAndALeg: Can separate his limbs if necessary.²* SkunkStripe: He's about the same age the founders of the JLA are when he appears (fifties or so), so his grey temples make sense.²²!!Deadman (Boston Brand)²²* BodySnatcher: Just like in the mainstream continuity.²²!!Hawkman (Carter Hall)²²* AGodAmI: Claims to be the reincarnation of an Egyptian god, rather than a reincarnated prince.²* CarryABigStick: Uses a mace.²* StuffBlowingUp: Filled said mace with explosives in order to destroy a large chunk of a Nazi weapons platform/mech.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Villains]]²²!!Ultra-Humanite²[[quoteright:350:]] ² ²Superman's enemy since 1920.²²* AndYourLittleDogToo: After resurfacing in 1989, he takes advantage of Superman's ongoing decade-long worldwide search for him to secretly kill every last one of Superman's civilian friends and their descendants while he's away, just to twist the knife.²* ArchEnemy: Superman's. Only Darkseid (in ''Generations III'') can make a similar claim, even after the real Lex Luthor returns.²* EvilCripple: Jonathan Kent shoots him with a shotgun, which causes his machine to activate on him and paralyze him from the waist down.²* GrandTheftMe: Took over Luthor's body when his henchman's brain was thought to have been dead. He also intends to take over Superman's body in order to gain his powers.²* LikeASonToMe: Tells Joel Kent he feels this way in order to manipulate him.²* TimeTravel: Hides from Superman for ten years by building a time portal and simply stepping ahead in time.²* WeddingSmashers: Orchestrates the whole interruption of Bruce Jr. and Kara's wedding with Joel Kent, disguising himself as Lois Kent's doctor so that he could kill her while Bruce Jr. goes after Joel.²²!!Lex Luthor/Metallo² ²Superman's enemy since his days as Superboy.²²* BrainComputerInterface: Yup. And he gets internet, too. Or the future equivalent.²* BrainInAJar: Becomes this in ''Generations II'' after it was assumed that Lex became brain-dead, allowing Ultra to BodySwap with him.²* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: After his blackout bomb wore off and he could move again, he immediately went to the Superman Museum, took over the AI that ran the place, and started using all the alien weapons and technology within on anyone who tried to stop him.²* CameBackWrong: His brain had been nearly destroyed, and the Ultra-Humanite's servants spent sixty-nine years repairing it before putting it into a robot body and waking him up. Judging by how unstable he turned out that wasn't nearly long enough, although they did ''try'' to fix his anti-social tendencies.²* DodgyToupee: Averted. That thing survived an ''explosion'' more of less intact!²* DrivenToMadness: Dying, having his wrecked brain repaired as best as possible and becoming a WetwareCPU with all the bizarre new senses and information that entails, as well as losing sixty-nine years of his life did a real number on him, pushing his inborn power lust and instability to new heights.²* EvenEvilHasStandards: As one of the Ultra-Humanite's goons, he objects to killing an innocent woman for show. ²* EvilRedhead: As "Ell" he wore a red wig. Historically, he was a good redhead before the incident that made him bald.²* HeelFaceTurn: Has the traditional backstory wherein he was a good friend and helper to Superboy until the hero messed up one of his experiments and left him severely depilitated.²* GoMadFromTheIsolation: Being trapped, fully conscious and aware, in his powerless robot body for four centuries after his first blackout bomb went off made him even crazier.²* HoistByHisOwnPetard: In ''Generations III'', the blackout bomb he designs with the help of the Parademons knocks out all technology on and around earth for four hundred years. [[AndIMustScream Including his new robot body.]]²* KryptoniteIsEverywhere: Inverted. Since there was no other way to permanently power the device keeping him alive, the only ethical thing to do was to let him keep the last known piece of Green Kryptonite left in existence. "Ethical" isn't always the same thing as "sensible", alas.²* MookLieutenant: Under Ultra-Humanite.²* TheStarscream: His younger self to the Ultra-Humanite.²* StrangerInAFamiliarLand: After nearly seventy years, he's overwhelmed by his first sight of Times Square.²* TeenGenius: Just like in mainstream continuity. In this one, though, he's second fiddle to the Ultra-Humanite, who busted him out of juvie.²* WalkingArmory: Boasts about having enough weaponry to take down half a city in his robot body.²* WetwareCPU: Post-resurrection, Lex is this for an incredibly advanced robot body, with its sensors and data banks feeding information directly into what's left of his brain.²* WhatHaveIBecome: He doesn't cope with his new situation very well, to say the least.²²!!Joker²[[quoteright:350:]] ² ²Batman's enemy since World War II²²* AMindIsATerribleThingToRead: The Joker's mind is a pretty disorienting place to be, as Deadman finds out firsthand.²* LegacyImmortality: Claims to want his legacy to die with him while the Joker Junior is on the loose, [[spoiler:though actually it is the Joker himself who is posing as his unrelated successor]].²* MoralSociopathy: He doesn't work with Nazis and he always repays his debts.²* MyGrandsonMyself: He uses makeup and a wig to pretend to be his own son.²²!!Ra's al-Ghul²²Batman's enemy and secret admirer²²[[/folder]]
