     Sheila Brainstorm 
Brainstorm's sister who thinks Calvin's an alien.

Sheila's Distaff Counterpart to Jack.

     Mother Brainstorm (maiden name Lightningstorm) 
The mother of the above two Brainstorms.
  • Big Eater: She once ate an entire turkey in a few bites.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Has traits of this.
  • Mama Bear: Shows this in the final chapter of "Black Rain" when she finds out that her son and Jack are at the mercy of Thunderstorm, to the point where she stops eating and shouting after a tensionful pause.
  • No Indoor Voice

     The Lightning Man (aka Percy Lightningstorm) 
A strange man who themes himself around electricity and knows a lot about Calvin and company. He's actually the uncle of Dr. Brainstorm (on his mother's side), whose knowledge of the heroes comes from their tendency to dominate Christmas dinner.

A Technopath that takes over Calvin's electronics three times.

     Holographic Retro 
After the real Retro was trapped on Galaxoid and Nebular's planet, he sent this hologram in his place.

One of the monsters under Calvin's bed.

     Dr. Thunderstorm 
Brainstorm's Chaotic Evil college rival that was freed by Shadow and managed to take over the world in the Season 3 finale (named after him to boot). In "Black Rain", he ends up freed by Shadow once more after getting re-frozen at the end of his first appearance.

A Killer Robot that was trapped in a chrome sphere and accidentally freed by a laser blast of Brainstorm's.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Jack.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Is ambiguously killed by Slender Man at the end of "Black Rain".
  • Killer Robot
  • Knight of Cerebus: Remarked upon when he finds out how long he's been dormant in "Black Rain":
    If Shadow had been a normal part of this universe, he would have said something like, "No wonder I needed to stretch when I woke up this morning," or "I don't know why I bother with that alarm clock." But Shadow was not normal. He didn't understand the fine art of deadpan snarking. He was a humorless evil robot who only understood joy in the ways that his creator had programmed him years ago.
  • Me's a Crowd: Thunderstorm uses a duplicating dimension to create an army of Shadows to take over the world.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: His abilities make him the most successful villain in the show, along with his master Dr. Thunderstorm.
  • Wall Crawl: He can also walk on the ceiling.

    The Slender Man 
Yes, really. The Slender Man plays a vital part in the final story of the series, "Black Rain". He stalks Socrates throughout, and eventually takes out Thunderstorm and Shadow, with heavy implications that he was on the side of good all along.
