    Baby Face 

Baby Face (Alfonso Face)

Voiced by Tom Kenny

Alfonso Vincenzo Giuseppe Face is a ruthless gangster with the face of a young child, but a manly voice of Edward G. Robinson. Though when he is defeated he whines like a baby, and he also wears diapers.


    Black Adam 

Black Adam / Teth Adam

Voiced by John DiMaggio

A former champion of the wizard Shazam, five thousand years ago. Black Adam turned against the wizard, and was banished into the depths of space, until Doctor Sivana managed to summon him back to Earth.

  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Fallen Hero: He became corrupted by his power, and tried to take over the world, and so the Wizard banished him to "the furthest star".
  • Flying Brick: Black Adam has all of Captain Marvel's power, and absolutely none of his kindness or compassion. Adam is one foe Batman is completely outclassed by.
  • The Red Baron: He identifies as the Thunder King.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: After being depowered by Doctor Sivana, the suddenly very old Teth Adam manages to slink away while everyone else is distracted.
  • Villainous Widow's Peak

    Black Manta 

Black Manta

Black Manta is a criminal from the surface world who frequently clashes with AQUAMAN.


Blockbuster (Mark Desmond)

Voiced by James Arnold Taylor (Desmond), Kevin Michael Richardson (Blockbuster)

While he simply appears to be a scrawny little punk, whenever Mark Desmond ingests the right chemicals, he becomes the super-strong Blockbuster, though his intelligence takes a hit when he does. Desmond's crimes are fuelled by the need for more funds. Chemicals don't come cheap, after all.

  • Evil Sounds Deep: Desmond's voice is as high-pitched as you'd expect a kid's to be. Blockbuster speaks in guttural growling.
  • Hulking Out: Practically lampsahded when Blockbuster declares himself "strongest".

    The Brain 

The Brain

A genius with his mind stuck in a robotic body, the Brain uses his intellect to get back at the world by committing heinous crimes.


Catwoman (Selina Kyle)

Voiced by Nika Futterman

Batman has never met another villain quite like the elusive and illustrious Catwoman, and not even a complex death trap can keep the two from friendly flirting.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: During "Death Race to Oblivion!", she gains the attention of Woozy Winks. She hisses at him.
  • Animal Motifs: Cats, naturally. She's based on them, likes using them, likes stealing cat-based objects in her crimes...
  • Anti-Villain: Seen as such by Batman, who points out to Green Arrow she's a thief rather than the usual deranged killers and criminal masterminds he faces. Her targets are also the rich and museums for the most part. Both of which are lower on the Batman's list of priorities.
  • Classy Cat-Burglar
  • Dating Catwoman: Of course. Every altercation between Batman and herself displays heavy amounts of mutual attraction and Unresolved Sexual Tension.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Played With. She engages in this with Batman during a cold opening, though with the intent of capturing and seducing him as a opposed to killing. After failing, she sadly laments the most dangerous game is in fact love.
  • Ms. Fanservice: As per usual for the character. She's a woman who goes around in a purple dress that shows off her legs and tends to friendly flirt with Batman.
  • Purple Is Powerful: She wears the same costume that her comic book counterpart wore in the Golden and Silver Age.
  • She's Got Legs: This is the Catwoman whom we are talking about. Her long toned yet shapely legs are presented through the dress that she wears.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: "My real prey is, and shall always be, Batman."
  • Whip It Good

    The Calculator 

The Calculator

  • Basement-Dweller: He still lives in his mom's basement, which is the first place Huntress looks for him.
  • Fat Bastard: He's a chubby, slovenly nerd who doesn't even wear pants at work, and that work is tattling for supervillains.
  • Information Broker: For supervillains, he supplies knowledge on what superhero's doing what, in exchange for money.

    The Cavalier 

The Cavalier

A criminal who has based himself on a 17th century swordsman.

  • Nice Hat: Since he is based on a cavalier.
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Possibly the Cavalier's most heinous of crimes is his constant use of mangled faux-Elizabeathan English. It gets a Lampshade Hanging from Batman in one appearance.
    Batman: (after having just heard the Cavalier speak) Somewhere, Shakespeare is spinning in his grave.

    The Cheetah 

The Cheetah (Priscilla Rich)

Voiced by Morena Baccarin

    Clock King 

Clock King (William Tockman)

The first villain to appear in The Brave and the Bold, Clock King has simple goals in life: assemble a clock-themed group of henchmen in a clock-themed secret lair, construct elaborate clock-themed traps and/or weapons, and use them to rob banks and/or kill Batman.

  • Badass Cape: A fancy-looking one with a fur trim.
  • Badass Normal: He's actually pretty ripped. He was once shown lifting weights in prison.
  • Clock King: While worth mentioning simply because of the name, he has yet to demonstrate the precise timing to be worthy of this trope.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He, Black Manta and Gorilla Grodd all find being controlled by the Music Meister despicable.
  • Jobber: Made a few appearances, but never got the time of day as the villain of a full episode. He'd appear, get beaten and the episode would move on.
  • Nice Hat
  • Pimped-Out Cape: Very fitting for a bad guy who deliberately bases himself off royalty.
  • Starter Villain: He is the first villain to appear in the series, and makes more appearances after that. However, the actual villain with a relevant role in the plot is Kanjar Ro.

    Crazy Quilt 

Crazy Quilt (Paul Dekker)

Voiced by Jeffrey Tambor

An ex-painter who leads a double life as a master thief, he is blinded during a battle with Batman and Robin. While in prison, he volunteers for an experimental procedure that would restore his vision. There is a side-effect, however: Even though he can see, he can only see in blinding, disorienting colors. Crazy-Quilt's wears a helmet that allows him to hypnotize his victims using flashing lights of various colors. It can also project lethal laser beams, blinding lights, and functions as artificial eyes since his own eyes no longer function; the lenses feed their input signal straight into his brain.


    The Crime Society 

''Voiced by: James Arnold Taylor (Blue Bowman), Will Freidle (Scarlet Scarab), Corey Burton (Silver Cyclone), James Sei (Dyna-Mite)

The greatest criminals of another Earth, the Crime Society assist Owlman in his villainous deeds.

  • Archer Archetype: Blue Bowman.
  • Color Character: Blue Bowman, Scarlet Scarab and Silver Cyclone.
  • Creepy Monotone: Silver Cyclone speaks entirely with emotion, regardless of what he's saying, including his plans to torture Red Hood.
  • Evil Counterpart: All of them are evil versions of the heroes, with evil versions of Green Arrow, Blue Beetle, Red Tornado, Atom, Aquaman, Plastic Man and Fire.
  • No Name Given: The villainous Aquaman and Fire don't get identified by name on the show
  • Omnicidal Maniac: All of them have no problem wiping out an entire planet with a nuke as an example, but Scarlet Scarab, Blue Bowman and Silver Cyclone are the worst.
  • Teens Are Monsters: Scarlet Scarab is the youngest member of the team, but every bit as evil and psychopathic as the others, getting gleeful at the thought of wiping out an entire planet, and gloating over having someone's heart in his closet.
  • Villainous Friendship: Dyna-Mite states he considers Owlman a friend.
  • The Voiceless: The evil Aquaman and Fire don't say a word.
  • Your Head Asplode: Silver Cyclone gets his head blown up mid-rant by the Red Hood.



Voiced by Michael Leon Wooley

Darkseid is the ruler of the planet Apokolips and the most feared being in the universe. He successfully conquered the Earth defeating both Batman and his new Justice League, but is forced back to Apokolips from an unexpected source.

  • Always Accurate Attack: His Omega Beam, ultimately subverted in that Batman managed to dodge it when he used it.
  • The Dreaded: Stated by Batman to be the most feared and evil being in the entire universe.
  • No-Sell: Deflects a combined attack from AQUAMAN, Fire, Ice, Booster Gold, and Guy Gardner without any effort.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Batman challenges Darkseid to a physical fight without any of his powers. It does not end well for the Bat.
  • Physical God: Played with; since it's a children's show Darkseid is never called a god outright, but Batman states he is so powerful that for all intents and purposes Darkseid is a god.
  • Suicide Mission: Inverted. Batman taking on a physically far superior entity was not his finest moment.

    Doctor Double X 

Doctor Double X / Simon Ecks

A man with a very literal split personality. Simon Ecks commits crimes in order to drain enough energy that he can give his more brutish other side a physical body of his own.

  • Adaptation Origin Connection: Double X is the cause of Firestorm's origins here, since it's his attack on a power plant that fuses Ronnie Raymond and Jason Rusch.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Firestorm. Both are two people technically stuck in the one body, one a scrawny nerd, the other a towering thug. The difference is that Firestorm's components learn to get along and work together. The Simons just hate each other.

    Doctor Sivana 

Doctor Thaddeus Bodog Sivana

Voiced by Jim Piddock

A mad scientist who plagues Fawcett City with his demented schemes, with assistance from his children, requiring the intervention of Captain Marvel.

  • Bald of Evil: Not a hair on his head, and evil as they come.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: His children, Thaddeus Junior and Georgia, help out in his mad schemes.
  • Gonk: Short, hunched, bald with pointy ears, coke-bottle glasses and an overbite. He's not winning any beauty contests any time soon, that's for sure. Thaddeus Junior and Georgia have inherited his looks.
  • Mad Scientist: He is the original comic mad scientist, after all.
  • Schmuck Bait: Batman manages to deprive him of the Wizard's power by wrongfully pronouncing "Shazam". Sivana can't help but correct him, at which point...



Voiced by Oded Fehr

An orphan empowered with powers of Order and Chaos, he was suppose to keep the balance. However, the opposing sides of his psyche broke his mind.

As far as Equinox is concerned, there's a delicate balance between good and evil, and he's the only one concerned with preserving it. If some bad guy gets too powerful, he'll take them out to keep evil in check...and if a hero starts wiping out bad guys left and right, Equinox will try to keep them in check too.

  • Arc Villain: A few appearances in the cold opens leads to an arc with him as the villain at the end of season one.
  • Balance Between Order and Chaos: A very good example on how arbitrary this justification can be.
  • Canon Foreigner: An original character to the show.
  • Expy: Shares a similar backstory and obsession with balance to Silver Age Libra.
  • A God Am I: After taking the power of all the of the Lords of Chaos and Order, he pretty much is this.
  • Literal Split Personality: His consciousness was shattered into 12 pieces and shattered throughout time and space. Hatred!Equinox was the first to appear and was killed by four different versions of Batman from across time.
  • Not Quite Dead: After Batman destroyed him, his consciousness was shattered into 12 parts and hurled throughout time and space.
  • Not So Different: With Batman. Both devote their entire lives to their quests—seeing them as a never-ending responsibility.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Eventually snapped and tried to destroy and recreate the universe in his own image.
  • One-Winged Angel: Absorbed the powers of Chaos and Order to grow into a gigantic, armored version of him with reality warping powers. Even when Batman is given the powers all the shows guest heroes who appeared up to the point in the series, he still can't beat him.
    • Hatred!Equinox merged all of his Mecha-Mooks into a giant robot and possessed it to try and kill Future!Batman.
  • A Pupil of Mine, Until He Turned to Evil: As stated by the Lords of Chaos and Order.
  • Reality Warper
  • Thanatos Gambit: He dies in an explosion during a fight with Batman and Doctor Fate in "The Fate of Equinox!"—but his soul persists, and is now able to freely access the powers of Order and Chaos with the limitations of his worldly body gone.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After Batman pointed out that he wasn't perfectly balanced, he snapped and his body began to crack along with his mind, allowing Batman to defeat him..
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: The strain of his responsibilities eventually took a toll on his mind.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: He has mastery of both Order and Chaos magic.

    Gentleman Ghost 

Gentleman Ghost (Jim Craddock)

Voiced by Greg Ellis

"Gentleman" Jim Craddock was a notorious highwayman in 19th-century England, but as his fame spread, he began to seek something more than simple wealth. In search of the ultimate power he made a deal with the demon Astaroth— in exchange for ten human souls, he would be granted immortality. Unfortunately for him, Astaroth's definition of "immortal" didn't quite match up with Craddock's. When the courts ordered Gentleman Jim hanged for his crimes, his body died, leaving his soul to wander the earth as "Gentleman Ghost," seeking revenge on the living— particularly Batman. As a ghost, Craddock is nearly immune to tangible weapons— only the Thanagarian element "Nth Metal" can touch him if he doesn't want to be touched.

  • Achilles' Heel: He has a weakness to Nth Metal like all ghosts.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Batman, since he was responsible for his death.
  • The Blank: Played with. He does have a face, but it's usually rendered invisible and only his top hat and monocle can be seen. However there are certain instances like lightning strikes or when he is hit by Nth Metal will his true face be revealed.
  • Deal with the Devil: He wanted immortality and Astaroth promised his soul would never pass from the Earth.
    Etrigan: You're a foolish man to take that deal! A demon's promise is never real!
  • Dragged Off to Hell: His final fate is getting pulled into the ground by his undead army.
  • Dem Bones: His true face is decaying and skeletal.
  • Evil Brit: He is an Englishman who menaced London when he was alive.
  • Evil Laugh: Gives off demonic cackles.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He is ultimately defeated by his own undead army where he gets Dragged Off to Hell.
  • Jack the Ripoff: He is implied to be the show's version of Jack the Ripper back when he was alive. Although the myth also got tied together with Sherlock Holmes.
  • Nice Hat
  • Pet the Dog: He does genuinely inform a civilian that they were being scammed by a phony psychic, although he may have done so for the fun of ruining the fake's reputation.
  • Rogues-Gallery Transplant: While he has fought Batman before, he is typically a Hawkman villain. The show makes him a very personal enemy to Batman. He does become Katar and Shayera's enemy in the comics based on the show.
  • Victorian London: Given that when he was alive he coexisted with Sherlock Holmes, he is also presumably from this era.
  • Wicked Cultured: He's a very sophisticated gentleman, but is pure evil.

    Gorilla Grodd 

Gorilla Grodd

Voiced by John DiMaggio

One of the more frequently featured villains in the show. Grodd helped set the tone for the series in the second episode by turning Batman into an ape on Dinosaur Island.

  • Badass Bass: In "Mayhem of the Music Meister!"
  • Blatant Lies: He's had that utility belt that looks like Batman's for years. You've just never seen him wear it.
  • Breather Episode: Was the featured villain of the very silver aged "Gorillas In Our Midst!" after the Darker and Edgier "Chill of the Night."
  • Even Evil Has Standards: As with Clock King and Black Manta, he finds Music Meister's hypnotic control "dastardly, despicable, and imminently kickable".
  • Everything's Better with Monkeys
  • Fantastic Racism: Against humans, and any other sapient species he can find.
  • Fantastic Slur: A good way to annoy Grodd is refer to him as a monkey. It invariably gains an annoyed "MONKEY?!" from him.
  • Hypocrite: Grodd will go on and on about how stupid humans are... but it doesn't stop him working with them to suit his own ends.
  • Hypocritical Humour: One episode has him claim Batman has an unhealthy obsession with him. A later episode shows Grodd has an unhealthy obsession with Batman.
  • Insufferable Genius: In the words of Batman, "Grodd considers himself a genius first, and an ape second."
  • Large Ham
  • Mind Control
  • Rogues-Gallery Transplant: Usually an enemy of the Flash, this one constantly battle Batman and even ends up in Arkham.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Was turned human at the end of his first appearance. After a cameo as a human he's back to normal.
  • Worthy Opponent: Considers Batman one.
    "Batman. The one human worthy of my intellect."

    Harley Quinn 

Harley Quinn (Dr. Harleen Frances Quinzel, M.D.)

Voiced by Meghan Strange ("Emperor Joker!") and Tara Strong (Scooby-Doo! & Batman: The Brave and the Bold)

A psychiatrist who worked at Arkham Asylum until she met the Joker and grew to love him, eventually becoming his accomplice and on-off sidekick. Harley is seen with the Joker at the antiques museum in "Emperor Joker!" when he is about to steal his memorabilia until Batman shows up. While both the Dark Knight and the Clown Prince of Crime fight each other, Bat-Mite comes along and falls for her. When Bat-Mite accidentally gives all his powers to the Joker in his attempt to help Batman, things start going to hell when the Joker recreates the universe in his own image and uses the Dark Knight as a cosmic punching bag by killing him repeatedly and bringing him Back from the Dead each time. At the same time, both she and Bat-Mite question their faith in their heroes, since the latter care more about each other, and the former wonder if they'd be "better off without [them]".

    The Joker 
Voiced by Jeff Bennett and Corey Burton (Scooby-Doo version)

This incarnation of the Clown Prince Of Crime is as clownish as he's ever been, but underneath the fun-loving, acid-pie-throwing exterior, he lives to destroy Batman at all costs. Which makes it a bit confusing when he has to deal with two of them.

    Kanjar Ro 

Kanjar Ro

Voiced by Marc Worden

  • Starter Villain: Aside from Clock King being introduced, Kanjar Ro is the first villain to appear in the series with a much more relevant role in the premiere.

    Kite Man 

Kite Man (Charles Brown)

Voiced by Jeffrey Combs

The former boss of Eel O'Brien in his criminal days, Kite Man is a crazed maniac obsessed with kites and Benjamin Franklin due to a childhood incident. His two desires are to be the most famous kite-related person ever, and to get revenge on O'Brien.

  • Archenemy: For Plastic Man. Fittingly, Plastic Man's arch-nemesis is every bit as ridiculous as the rest of his life.
  • Evil Counterpart: Gains a version of Plastic Man's own powers, turning him into a dark version of Plas.
  • Irrational Hatred: Thanks to his childhood accident, he has a deep hatred for Benjamin Franklin.
  • It's Personal: Eel O'Brien's greed was what caused Batman to arrest him, and then he identified Kite Man during his trial. Kite Man swore revenge on O'Brien and his loved ones.
  • Large Ham: In fairness to him, he is insane.
  • Overly Narrow Superlative: He wishes to become the most famous kite-related person in history!
  • Rhetorical Question Blunder: He asks what Ben Franklin ever accomplished. Plastic Man and Woozy both point out things he was responsible for.
  • Shout-Out: Take a look at his theme, then take a look at his real name.
  • Too Dumb to Live: "Long Arm of the Law" shows the incident that drove him insane, playing with a kite in a thunderstorm with metal braces while standing in a bucket of water.

    K'rull the Eternal 

K'rull the Eternal

Voiced by Michael Dorn

A Neanderthal man who gained immortality from the strange light of a glowing red meteor, K'rull believes himself to be intrinsically superior to the mere humans who now rule the globe. He lives for the day when he can overthrow Homo sapiens and take his rightful place as ruler...and don't let his caveman look fool you, because he's more than smart enough to do it.

  • Composite Character/Expy: Of Captain Marvel villain King Kull and Vandal Savage, with a hint of Darkseid's son Kalibak.
  • Genius Bruiser: Several thousand years have given him a lot of time to get some reading in. Though it doesn't mean he can't enjoy the fun side of particle colliders - smashing things into walls.
  • Green Rocks: He got his immortality from a red meteorite.
  • Karma Houdini: Since he's immortal, he'll never die of old age. A flashforward shows he'll still be around in the 25th century (though by then he does seem to have given up on overt evil).
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His name sounds like "cruel".
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: By the 25th century, he's taken up wearing classy suits instead of dressing like a caveman.
  • Who Wants to Live Forever?: He's immortal, so he outlives everything he conquers.

    Lex Luthor

    Mrs. Manface 

Mrs. Manface (Manfreda Donatella)

Voiced by Ellen Greene

Manfreda Donatella Face is the wife of Babyface. She has the face of a square-jawed man (complete with a five o'clock shadow), but the voice and body of a normal woman.



Voiced by Gary Anthony Williams

Evil ruler of War World, he originally sought to use Jonah Hex as a way to beat batman once and for all, when that failed, he brought a War Moon to earth in an attempt to destroy the world, while also humoring its heroes and villains with a race to see if he'd do it.

  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Who would teleport losing racers to a cell rather than let them die? He does ensure the prisoners are separated from their various tools and trapped behind forcefields, but he foolishly never considered that Batman and Green Arrow would anticipate that.
  • I Lied: Said verbatim in Death Race to Oblivion
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Well, it is a big chin.
  • Sibling Rivalry: with his sister, Mongal.

    Morgaine le Fay 

Morgaine Le Fay

Voiced by Tatyana Yassukovich

Medieval witch. Arthur's sister. You may have heard of her. Enslaved Etrigan in Arthurian times to help take over Camelot and kill Merlin.

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: The comic version of Morgaine (as well as her counterpart in the Justice League cartoon) has to wear a mask and armor to hide her hideously decayed face. In this show, she's downright gorgeous. Justified since this is supposed to be during her early years.
  • Breath Weapon
  • Cain and Abel: She's the Cain to Arthur's Abel, overthrowing his kingdom.
  • Composite Character: She takes on a bit of Nimue, Merlin's student who betrayed him.
  • Evil Brit
  • Expy: Is almost identical to Disney's Maleficent, both being powerful evil witches obsessed with gaining power who magically transform into dragons to fight the heroes, even both dying from being stabbed in the stomach by a magical sword while in dragon form.
  • Femme Fatalons: Which are capable of scratching through stone.
  • Public-Domain Character
  • Scaled Up: She turns into a dragon to get rid of Jason Blood, Batman and Green Arrow.
  • Taken for Granite: Her favorite method of dispatching an enemy. Even her dragon fire turns folks to stone.
  • Vain Sorceress

Owlman (Unknown)

Voiced by Diedrich Bader

Exactly who Owlman is has never been revealed, but what we do know is that he's as evil as Batman is good. Exactly as evil. Batman's counterpart in an alternate universe, Owlman led a team of other such evil twins against the heroes of his world, and eventually defeated and imprisoned all but one. Now, with his Earth subjugated by the Injustice Syndicate, Owlman's sights are set on the conquest of other worlds.

    Per Degaton 

Per Degaton

A Germanic mad scientist who once fought the JSA, long ago, going missing when the first Black Canary damaged his equipment, only returning in the modern day and age thanks to a loyal flunky.

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Gets zapped with his aging staff, turning him into a baby, after having aged the JSA and Batman with it already.
  • No Swastikas: He's got a German-accent, and took part in some kind of military conflict which America was a part of many decades ago, but his political and national associations go distinctly unmentioned.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Trying to use his staff even after Black Canary had damaged it with her Canary Cry. Both times, in fact.

    Professor Zoom 

Professor Zoom (Eobard Thawne)

The yellow-clad Evil Counterpart to the Flash, Eobard Thawne is a criminal who hails from the 25th century. His mission is to destroy his lawful nemesis and all that the Flash stands for.

  • Composite Character: He's ostensibly Eobard Thawne (Reverse-Flash I/Zoom I) in his antagonism to Barry, his mask is that of Hunter Zolomon (Reverse-Flash II/Zoom II) with the black-and-red eyes. He also has speed minions who get their speed from a machine that is powered by a captured speedster which is taken from Savitar.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle : One of the few villains from the series that Batman can't defeat by his own even after the hero gets temporary super speed.
  • Evil Overlord: Of the 25th century, in "Requiem for a Scarlet Speedster."
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He was able to create a device that siphoned the previously-thought-to-be-dead Flash's speed into arm-bands that powered his private army and exponentially increased his own speed.

  • Red Eyes, Take Warning
  • Super Speed

    Ra's al Ghul 

Ra's al Ghul

Voiced by Peter Woodward

A well intentioned villain who wants to protect destroying human civilization. Despite his views on nature, he's rather old fashioned when it comes to his daughter Talia, feeling that a woman is incapable of succeeding him.



Voiced by: Clancy Brown

A m-genius scientist on the planet Zur-En-Arrh, and arch-enemy of that world' Batman, the short-tempered Rothul is determined to show the whole world how great his mind is, by stomping it flat. Just after he gets rid of that meddling Batman, first.

  • Awesomeness by Analysis: Manages to work out how to disable Batman's powers, simply by deducing his likely point of origin.
  • Bald of Evil
  • Cardboard Prison: Apparently Zur-En-Arrhian authorities don't bother searching the supervillains they lock up, so he's able to summon one of his robots to bust him out the minute he gets bored.
  • Expy: He is quite blatantly the Silver Age Lex Luthor, right down to being voiced by someone who'd voiced him previously.
  • Mad Scientist
  • Meaningful Name: Just to drive the point home, his name is Luthor, reversed.



An adversary of Plastic Man's, this latex leviathan may not be very bright, but his rubbery nature makes actually knocking him down a difficult prospect.



The Green Lantern of Sector 1417, considered the most peaceful of all sectors in the known universe. However, during the fight against Despero, Sinestro shows his true colours when he turns against the Corps.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He initially seems like just another Green Lantern, even allowing Batman to assist when Guy tells him to get lost. Then it turns out that he took over his own world, and decides to kill Mogo as plan A. While beating up Guy, he even declares he thought himself better than the other lanterns.
  • Obviously Evil: With a name like that? And yet Batman completely trusts him until Despero reveals what he did.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: After kicking his butt, Guy seals Sinestro away inside his ring.
  • Shoot the Dog: While Batman goes after Despero, Guy finds Sinestro setting bombs all around Mogo, preparing to kill him, on the grounds it's safer than letting Despero keep controlling him... and because he doesn't trust G'nort to succeed.

  • Dragon with an Agenda: He'll do whatever Starro asks in exchange for the chance to hunt prey.
  • The Faceless: Duh.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: His main motivation.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Lacks any of the camp the usual villains have, and is much more evil.
