    Serqet 

Serqet

The head of Scorpion, a villainess who emerged in the 1930s and has continued strong since.


  • The Ageless: Looks the same now as he did when she was first photographed in the '30s, and Rick notes she looks pretty damn good for that age.
  • The Face: Scorpion's most public figure out of all their bigwigs.

    Bloodwatch 

Bloodwatch

Former superhero turned assassin for Scorpion.


  • Arch-Enemy: Considers Anthem to be his most hated enemy, though she views him as just another villain.
  • Cyborg: Has cybernetic enhancements, which allows him to hold his own against Anthem despite his disadvantage.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: He knew that fighting with Anthem wouldn't have ended well if continued too long, so he bolted the moment he had the chance.
  • Nominal Hero: What he was before going villain. Anthem notes that he was once "nominally" a hero, which meant he wasn't exactly a shining paragon to begin with.
  • Villainous Underdog: His fight against Anthem. She's a Flying Brick who is both stronger and faster than him, but he still manages to keep up until he realizes that escape is the better option.

    Dr. Zubenelgenubi 

Dr. Zubenelgenubi

The Black Roses

    General 

  • Affably Evil: Like most classic mob types, they cultivate an image of being gentlemen and trying to maintain order in the underworld.
  • Cyber Punk: A classy version, since they combine it with civilized Mafia aesthetics.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Invoked. They were pretty damn tough as normal mobsters, but realized there was no way to keep up without their own superpowered edge. Hence, their cybernetics.
  • The Mafia: The result of an otherwise conventional crime family turning to any way of keeping up with superheroes.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: Cyber Punk transhuman Sicilian mobsters.

    Father Omerta 

Orlando Rossi / Father Omerta

    Frank Castilucci 

Frank Castilucci

  • Anti-Villain: He genuinely thinks of himself as a Punch-Clock Villain who is protecting his people from worse monsters. He turns on the Black Roses when he realizes they only care about money.
  • Big Bad: He's the primary force behind the attempts to frame the hero Topaz. Subverted, he's not the reason Topaz was brought to task in the first place.
  • Framing the Guilty Party: What he thought he was doing with Topaz.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He eventually turns state witness out of disgust with the Black Roses and to stop a Dirty Cop.

Pyrebands

    General 
  • Playing with Fire: As their name suggests, they use the powers of fire drawn from Chaser.
  • The Stoner: Sort of. They are all hooked on Chaser, which gives them powers and is highly dangerous.
  • Super Serum: They draw their powers from a special drug called Chaser, which grants them pyro abilities.

    Skullcharred 

Thomas "The Wash" Washington / Skullcharred

A former professional football player for Titan City who lost his career to Chaser. Returned as Skullcharred, leader of the Pyrebands.


  • Atrocious Alias: It's noted by Lenny Alvarez that "Skullcharred" sounds more like a smoked fish than a supervillain.
  • Drugs Are Bad: Lost everything to Chaser when he vomited flames on another player and caused the biggest scandal in decades. This has only exacerbated the state.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: From pro football player to supervillain.
  • Playing with Fire: As you can expect from the leader of the Pyrebands, he's an extremely dangerous pyro.

Cumulus Rex

  • Hero Killer: On top of presumably many others, he's responsible for the death of American Star, the first and greatest hero of the setting.
