Justice League Enemies

Voiced By: Steve Blum (JL War), Tony Todd (all other appearances)

The Lord of Apokolips who invades Earth and forces the heroes of Earth to band together and stand against him.

  • Adaptational Dumbass: His debut in War portrays him as a straightforward brute, lacking the usual cunning and eloquence associated with the character. He grows out of this when he returns in Reign.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: For all of his power, Trigon overpowers him in Apokolips War, both while possessing Superman and in his true form.
  • Big Bad: He serves as the main antagonist of Justice League: War. He is also the true villain of the Death / Reign duology as the creator of Doomsday and Cyborg Superman. He is also the main villain for the DCAMU's Grand Finale, Justice League Dark: Apokolips War.
  • Character Development: When Darkseid first appeared, he tried to conquer the world by force, personally leading his army. When he was defeated by Superman and the newly formed Justice League, he set about manipulating events from behind the scenes to dispose of his enemies via Doomsday and later Cyborg-Superman.
  • Composite Character: His role in Reign combines the roles played by Bertron (Doomsday's creator) and Mongul (the power behind Cyborg-Superman).
  • Evil Is Bigger: Darkseid is huge in this incarnation, easily three times taller than the heroes and just as wide.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Typical for both Darkseid and several villains voiced by Steve Blum and Tony Todd. That said, in Blum's case, his voice in the finished version of War had a ton of effects put on it to make him sound demonic, but Todd's is unaltered.
  • Eye Scream:
    • After showing off his Omega Beams, the League teams up to destroy each of his eyes in War, then they get zapped by lightning from Shazam and Superman's heat vision.
    • Apokolips War sees him lose the eyelid for his left eye after zapping a sword Batman tosses at him and Superman later pokes him in the eyes.
  • Fate Worse than Death: His final fate is to be trapped in the void between dimensions eternally locked in battle with Trigon, who is clearly going to be wailing in him for a long time.
  • Final Boss: He's the last villain for the Justice League to face in Apokolips War, the Grand Finale of the DCAMU.
  • Galactic Conqueror: He had conquered countless worlds in the past and converted their inhabitants into Parademons.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: In Justice League: War. He is given no motivation or backstory for his invasion of Earth. All he states is that he is entropy and death. When not busy fighting the heroes, he engages in random acts of destruction with his eye beams. So he invades because he is evil... and that is about it. Luckily, he's grown out of this with more characterization established in Reign of the Supermen.
  • God of Evil: Like mentioned above, he's literally the God of Tyranny and the worst of the New Gods.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of the entire DCAMU, being one of the greatest forces of evil in the universe. He fulfills this role for the Death/Reign duology, being the creator of Doomsday and later Cyborg-Superman. He attempts to step into Big Bad status upon finding out Superman is alive, but Henshaw turns on him and denies him the opportunity, leaving him still at large.
  • Hate Sink: Darkseid is a ruthless and sadistic tyrant that commits such an intensely depraved laundry list of atrocities to point where at the climax of Apokolips War makes you root for Trigon of all characters to beat the everloving crap out of him as painfully as possible.
  • Hero Killer: While his forces kill several heroes, Darkseid himself is responsible for the deaths of Aquaman, many members of the Green Lantern Corps, and (though Raven brought him back) Robin.
  • Invincible Villain: It takes the entirety of the Justice League to hurt him and only the even more evil Trigon is his superior. He is defeated in War and Apokolips War by Boom Tubing him to a far away place, the second time with the latter.
  • Large and in Charge: Exaggerated. While Darkseid is normally portrayed as very tall even for his race, this version is a literal giant who is the size of a small building, far bigger than any of his minions or any other hero.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He's the creator of Doomsday and Cyborg Superman, who were the Big Bads of Death and Reign, respectively.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Much like the New 52 proper, Darkseid's eyes are fine after having two objects stabbed into them (and in this case, zapped with lightning and heat vision afterward) in his debut.
  • Your Size May Vary: While still huge, he is smaller in Apokolips War than he was in War.

    Ocean Master
Voiced By: James Patrick Stuart (The Flashpoint Paradox, uncredited), Steve Blum (War, uncredited), Sam Witwer (Throne of Atlantis)

The half-brother of Aquaman. Outraged by his father's death during the Justice League's battle with Darkseid in War, Orm declare war on the surface world.

  • Aborted Arc: The Stinger of Throne of Atlantis sees Luthor approach Orm with an an offer. This is never followed up on and given the ending of Justice League Dark: Apokolips War, it likely never will.
  • Big Bad: He is the central antagonist of Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, usurping the throne in order to lead Atlantis in a war against the surface.
  • Fantastic Racism: Orm harbours a deep hatred for the surface world and wishes to wage war against all its dwellers.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: In Throne of Atlantis, he very much resembles his voice actor Sam Witwer.
  • It's All About Me: While he claims that everything he's done was for the good of Atlantis, it's clear that it's only about satisfying his own needs and hatred.
  • Manchild: Most of his tirades sound like a child throwing a tantrum.
  • Matricide: Killed his mother after she discovered his treachery and tried to stop him.
  • Necessarily Evil: He hijacks a human submarine and has it attack Atlantean civilians to justify war against the surface world.
  • The Sociopath: Lies and manipulates his way to power, and murders his own mother without a hint of remorse.
  • Villainous Crush: To Mera, who doesn't make it a secret that she's not interested. He may have gotten over it when Mera sided with Aquaman and the Justice League.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: At the end of Throne of Atlantis, Lex offers him to join his Legion of Doom, but he hasn't been seen since.

    Black Manta 
Voiced By: Harry Lennix (Throne of Atlantis), Dave Fennoy (Hell to Pay)

A man donning a robotic suit that vaguely resembles a manta ray. He aids Ocean Master in his quest to start a war between Atlantis and the surface world, and is later arrested and inducted into Amanda Waller's Suicide Squad.

  • The Cameo: Shows up briefly during the opening of the Suicide Squad film, delivering Task Force X to their next destination.
  • The Chessmaster: He is responsible for the events of Throne of Atlantis, manipulating Orm into waging war against the surface world. Regardless, he is disposed off before the film's climax, and his pawn becomes the Big Bad.
  • Eye Beams: His weapon of choice is a laser beam that he fires from his visor.
  • Greed: The main reason he manipulates Orm is to plunder Atlantis of all its treasures while its citizens are busy fighting a war against the surface.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: When he attempts to slash a Paradoom with his kryptonite blades, the monster catches him in mid-air and tears him in half.

  • Unexplained Recovery: Black Manta is defeated in Throne of Atlantis when Aquaman summons a great white shark to devour him, yet he is revealed to be alive in Hell to Pay, with only a couple of face scars as a reminder of the incident.

Appearences: Justice League Dark
Voiced By: Alfred Molina

A former man of science until he went insane 500 years ago and tried to take over using the Dreamstone, he was defeated but he comes back in the modern day.

  • Adaptation Name Change: Downplayed but his name might get him confused for the Endless of the same name. In truth he is based on Doctor Destiny.
  • Adaptational Badass: The original Dr Destiny was formidable in his own right but was very small-minded when it came to his ambitions, even when wielding Morpheus' Dreamstone in The Sandman. This incarnation is a bona fide Person of Mass Destruction that is so powerful that he can take over the eastern seaboard in a single night.
  • Ax-Crazy: Back when he was alive, he spent his time razing a village and making the inhabitants kill each other for little more than sick kicks before finally being stopped. When he brings himself back, the only thing about him that’s changed is that he’s much more large-scale about his psychotic appetites.
  • Big Bad: Serves as this for Justice League Dark as everything bad was a result of his scheming.
  • Body Horror: Before he was banished to Hell (or wherever Merlin sent him) he looked quite normal. A tad pale maybe, but nothing too extreme. When he finally came back to Earth, on the other hand...
  • The Bus Came Back: Meta-example. It's been up to at least fourteen years since Dr. Destiny had his last animated appearance in the previous Justice League cartoon. In Justice League Dark™, he finally makes his glorious return after well over a decade.
  • Evil Sorcerer: He uses magic to extend his life and killed a bunch of people.
  • A God Am I: He believes himself to be a god.
  • Hate Plague: Destiny's Dream Stone induces hallucinations, which he can exploit to make people dangerously aggressive towards each other. At the film's climax, an entire city succumbs to his spell, including the Justice League, who starts fighting the other heroes after being consumed by a blind rage.
  • Hero Killer: Destiny kills Jason Blood by separating him from Etrigan, causing his old age to catch up to him.
  • Karmic Death: His final demise comes as a result of Constantine provoking Destiny to the point that he brings him inside his barrier so he can rough him up with his bare hands, while smuggling Deadman inside his own body so he can Body Surf into Destiny and distract him long enough for the others to put him down for good.
  • Our Liches Are Different: Because he made the dreamstone with a part of his soul, he can (and does) use it to resurrect himself, along with the fact that it also acts as a sort-of anchor to the physical world. When Batman destroys the dreamstone, he goes with it and stays gone.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He's crazy, not stupid. For instance, after Etrigan took out both him and the Dream Stone the first time round, he makes a point of not exposing himself or the stone in a close-quarters fight with Etrigan (or, indeed, anyone), maintaining a permanent force-shield that allows him to keep everyone else at arm's length. He also ignores Deadman's jibe about god not needing a force-shield. The one moment he grabs the Idiot Ball is when he underestimates Constantine and drags him inside the shield - if he hadn't done that, he'd have won.

Paradooms are genetically engineered soldiers that were created by combining Parademons with Doomsday's genetic code.

  • Devoured by the Horde: They are the horde that ate Zatanna, Batgirl, Shazam, Bane, and possibly Hal Jordan and Swamp Thing.
  • Elite Mooks: They represent the elite of the Darkseid army.
  • Glass Cannon: They can hurt heroes like Wonder Woman and Shazam, but they can be destroyed by a Batarang.
  • Hero Killer: Despite being Mooks, they manage to kill many superheroes.
  • Lightning Bruiser: They are very fast, which contributes greatly to their victory over the heroes, as they thoroughly avert Mook Chivalry.
  • Monster Threat Expiration: Downplayed, they never stop being a threat, but they are less deadly later on to the point that even normal humans can survive fights against them, even without Kryptonite.
  • Quantity vs. Quality: As deadly an improvement over the standard Parademons that the Paradooms are, individually they are vastly inferior to the original Doomsday, likely due to being mass produced.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: Exactly how powerful they are supposed to be can vary from scene to scene, in some cases they are almost indestructible and can only be killed by kryptonite, and in other cases Batgirl using a metal stick can kill several.
  • Zerg Rush: Individually they can be destroyed by Batgirl, but they make up for it with their enormous numbers.


Superman Enemies

A mysterious and powerful monster sent to Earth to kill the Justice League.
  • Adaptational Backstory Change: Originally created in an experiment to create the Ultimate Life Form, here he's a Living Weapon created by Darkseid specifically to kill Superman.
  • Ax-Crazy: Doomsday is a killing machine with no real thoughts or feelings. All he lives for is murder and destruction.
  • The Berserker: Doomsday's fighting style is charge and crush like a raging, rampaging monster.
  • Big Bad: He is the main antagonist of The Death of Superman, arriving on Earth from a boom tube and destroying everything on its wake. Later films reveal he was only acting in Darkseid's interests.
  • The Brute: An almost mindless killing machine who relies on brute strength to overcome his opponents, and he happens to be among the top three strongest characters in the DCAMU, the other two being Superman and his creator, Darkseid.
  • Composite Character: His look most closely recalls the original comics and New 52 appearance, with his traits of progressively growing spikier as the fight wears on and having Eye Beams taken from the DC Extended Universe incarnation. Justice League Dark: Apokolips War later revealed he was a clone of Superman, much like his DC Animated Universe counterpart was.
  • Diabolus ex Nihilo: Arrives in via comet and proceeds to go on a rampage with no attention given to its origins outside of some brief speculation. Reign reveals that Doomsday was created by Darkseid for the purpose of killing Superman.
  • The Dragon: To Darkseid in Death, as he was created for the purpose of killing Superman.
  • Dumb Muscle: Doomsday was bred only to kill and destroy, which leaves little in the way of intelligence beyond a feral, rage-fueled beast. However, he does have a limited capacity for learning, but only in how to better kill his opponents.
  • It Can Think: Downplayed: Despite being so mindless that the Martian Manhunter can't read him, Doomsday does show some tactics besides "beat anything that moves to death with my fists". This includes picking up Wonder Woman's sword to kill her with, wrapping Superman's cape around his neck as a noose and leaving the Manhunter alone after his fists fail to hit the Intangible Martian.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: He continues to pummel Wonder Woman until she goes unconscious, and was about to deliver the coup-de-grace with her own sword before being thwarted.
  • Living Weapon: Lex speculates that Doomsday is just a weapon meant to wipe out all life on the planet to make way for a conquering force. Reign of the Supermen confirms his theory, as Darkseid prepares to invade Earth and expresses surprise at Doomsday's demise.
  • The Juggernaut: Absolutely brutalizes every member of the Justice League who gets in his way, and gives even the Man of Steel a run for his money.
  • Laser Guided Tyke Bomb: Born and bred by Darkseid to kill Superman, and he actually succeeds... for a while at least.
  • Mutual Kill: Doomsday's last act just as Superman landed the killing blow was to stab him in the chest with a Blade Below the Shoulder, nearly killing the Man of Steel.
  • Neck Snap: Superman kills him by punching him so hard, his head does a full 180.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: For the entire movie, he dishes a particularly hard and extended one out to every member of the Justice League, and even Superman.
  • Power Incontinence: Doomsday doesn't have full control over his Eye Beams and is seen shaking his head in confusion whenever they come out. It's implied that Doomsday's heat vision is a defensive mechanism which is triggered instinctively, as he only displays such ability when Superman and Luthor start to gain the upper hand over him.
  • Super Strength: Doomsday outclasses the entire Justice League in terms of sheer strength and durability, defeating all the heroes with nothing but his own brute force.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Much like his comics counterpart, he has bony spikes all over his body. And much like his DCEU self, he kills Superman by stabbing him with one of them.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Downplayed. His general fighting style boils down to "beat the shit out of anything that moves" and he lacks any finesse or discipline, but is just so damn strong, he can just tank whatever the League throws at him. However, he appears to learn some tactical sense as he fights, in that he recognizes how to use weapons or even use Superman's own cape to strangle him.
  • Unstoppable Rage: He is built on rage alone and one could argue he is the incarnation of wrath itself. He thinks of nothing more than just to kill and this homicidal monster is able to beat anyone in the Justice League just by his great power and rage alone.

    Cyborg Superman/Hank Henshaw
Voiced By: Patrick Fabian (Hank Henshaw), Jerry O'Connell (Cyborg-Superman)

A former astronaut who becomes a cyborg supervillain bent on revenge against Superman.

  • Berserk Button: He doesn't want anyone to say his wife's name, nor does he like anyone asking him what would his wife think of him now.
  • Big Bad: Of Reign of the Supermen. He spends much of it as The Dragon to Darkseid but is the one driving the plot. He later betrays Darkseid to kill Superman himself, going so far as to sabotage his attempted invasion.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He makes himself appear to want to help people like Superman before him, but is hiding a more sinister agenda.
  • Broken Pedestal: He once thought very highly of Superman. After Doomsday destroyed their space station and killed his wife, he has nothing but contempt for the Man of Steel.
  • Cast as a Mask: Jerry O'Connell voices him when he poses as Superman with Patrick Fabian voicing him when he talks to Darkseid and after dropping the act when Lois confronts him.
  • The Dragon: For Darkseid, the film's Greater-Scope Villain. Darkseid is leagues more powerful than Henshaw, but his entire invasion hinged on Henshaw's Cyber Corps. Once he breaks from his control, he quickly sabotages the invasion, stranding Darkseid and his army in space.
  • The Heavy: The film's lead villain in front of Darkseid. His vengeance pushes him to take the Big Bad role for himself in the climax.
  • It's All About Me: Despite his claims about getting revenge for his wife, as Lois points out, it's only ever been about him and making himself feel better.
  • Misplaced Retribution: His reason for hating Superman? He wasn't there to stop Doomsday from killing his wife. And he's willing to get revenge by teaming up with Darkseid, the one who created Doomsday in the first place.
  • Never My Fault: During a Motive Rant, he blamed Superman for what happened to his wife and crew, refusing to acknowledge that his stalling launching the shuttle in the hope Superman would show up to stop the meteor carrying Doomsday was the reason for what happened in the first place.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: With a little spurning from Lois, Henshaw turns on Darkseid and sabotages his invasion in favor of killing Superman himself.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Much like the comics, his plan is to tarnish Superman's legacy, blaming Superman for the death of his crew.
  • Spanner in the Works: Darkseid's invasion of Earth would have gone swimmingly had Henshaw not sabotaged the portal.

    Metallo/John Corben 
A dying soldier that was transformed into a powerful cyborg with a Kryptonite Heart.


Batman Enemies

    Killer Croc/Waylon Jones
Appearances: Son of Batman
Voiced By: Fred Tatasciore
A large criminal with a reptilian-like skin condition.
  • Beast Man: Like most versions of the character, he is basically a humanoid crocodile. Apparently, he has become even more beast-like after consuming steroids, which notably caused him to grow a tail.
  • Body Horror: After being captured, he starts going into withdrawal from the steroids that gave him his new tail and strength. His scales are flaking off and his tail is so decayed that Batman just rips it off with one good tug.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: He tries to eat Batman several times.
  • In the Back: Just before he could kill Batman, he receives an electric dart in the back courtesy of Talia, though he survives.
  • Mutilation Interrogation: Is victim of this when Batman comes to his cell in Arkham to interrogate him. As he refuses to talk, Batman rips off his tail, which seems extremely painful.
  • Near-Villain Victory: He manages to overpower Batman and comes very close to kill him, but he's stopped by Talia's intervention.
  • Never Smile at a Crocodile: He looks like a humanoid crocodile.
  • No-Sell: After becoming stronger and tougher due to the steroids, he can brush off batarangs as if they were flies, and even Batman's punches and kicks have little effects on him.
  • Prehensile Tail: During his fight with Batman, he uses his tail to grab various things, including Batman himself.
  • Starter Villain: In Son of Batman, he's the first villain fought by Batman.
  • Super Strength: He's so strong, he can lift a forklift effortlessly and throw it several feet away.
  • Tail Slap: The first thing he does when he faces Batman is to try to crush him with his tail.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Apparently, he became stonger, tougher and more muscular after consuming steroids, to the point he almost manages to kill Batman during their fight. He also has grown a powerful tail, which he didn't have before.

    The Joker 
Voiced By: Dee Bradley Baker (Son of Batman), Jason Spisak (Hush)
The Clown Prince of Crime and arch nemesis of Batman. Once a petty criminal who accidentally fell into a vat of chemicals that drove him insane.
  • Advertised Extra: He is featured prominently in the cover of Batman: Hush, but his role in the film is minimal. Hush frames him for the murder of Thomas Elliot and he is later seen cracking jokes as Batman struggles against Clayface, but is otherwise thoroughly irrelevant to the main narrative.
  • The Cameo: Appears briefly in his cell at Arkham in Son of Batman and on a monitor as one of Dollmaker's associates in Batman vs. Robin.
  • Demoted to Extra: In most animated universes set in DC where Batman is one of the main protagonists, Joker tends to be featured prominently as one of the most important villains. In the DCAMU, he's barely a blip on the radar with his first official appearance being little more than a cameo and his second, more prominent appearance being that of a supporting villain at best. And then we find out how he was Killed Offscreen by Batman in Apokolips War like an afterthought.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: The design seen on the Batcomputer monitor in Batman vs. Robin features a different face and less lines on it than in Hush.
  • Killed Offscreen: According to Harley, the corrupted Batman killed him in Justice League Dark: Apokolips War.
  • Not Me This Time: He wasn't lying about not killing Thomas Elliot.

    The Dollmaker/Anton Schott 
Appearances: Batman vs. Robin
A serial murderer that kidnaps children to turn them into obedient "Dolls".
  • Cold Equation: Tells Damian that some of the children he kidnaped have to be sacrificed so that the others could survive.
  • Composite Character: His real name is Anton Schott, yet his appearance evokes Barton Mathis and his M.O. combined both (Schott's habit of turning kids into dolls and the face stealing of Mathis). His backstory similarly combines their respective fathers (the name of Winslow Schott, a.k.a. the Toyman, with the serial killer history of Wesley Mathis)
  • In the Back: Talon kills him by punching him through his back and ripping out his heart.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: He wears a creepy doll mask. His "Dolls" wear similar masks as well.
  • That Man Is Dead: When Damian calls him Anton Schott, he replies that Anton Schott died when his father took away his innocence, now he's the Dollmaker.
  • Non-Action Guy: Despite having a pretty impressive build, he doesn't seem to have any fighting skills and relies exclusively on his "Dolls" to fight the intruders.
  • Obliviously Evil: He genuinely believes he's helping the children by turning them into killing machines.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: He has a child-like, yet creepy voice that doesn't sound anything like his voice actor.
  • Starter Villain: He is the first villain to appear in the film, and gets killed by Talon.
  • Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: His father was a psychopatic killer and treated him horribly. This caused him to become a very deranged man who experiments on children in order to "protect" them.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He kidnaps many children to experiment on them.

Appearances: Batman vs. Robin
Voiced By: Jeremy Sisto
The muscle of the secret Court of Owls who is interested in recruiting Damian as his apprentice.
  • Abusive Parents: As a child, his father was an alcholic cat burglar who beat him after he botched a robbery.
  • Big Bad: Talon eventually becomes the main threat in Batman vs. Robin once he slaughters the entirety of the Court of Owls, imprisons Robin and leads the undead Talons in a massive assault against Wayne Manor.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After getting beaten by his father, Talon eventually sold him out to the police by calling them anonymously.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • Talon compares himself to Batman, given that they are both orphans, were trained in hand-to-hand combat, and dress in costumes based on nocturnal animals. However, Talon rejects Batman's no-killing rule, and is a member of a secret society whose main objective is to exert influence in all of Gotham.
    • Realizing that Damian Wayne's anger is a result of his inability to meet his father's expectations, Talon comes to see his own younger self in the boy. However, while Damian manages to bond with Batman and become a true hero, Talon is unable to let go of his past and dies a criminal.
  • Fate Worse than Death: His main motivation is to avoid one. As the Court of Owls' assassin, Talon is destined to become one of the organization's undead soldiers. To avoid such fate, he approaches Robin and tries to manipulate the boy into taking his place in the ritual.
  • Final Boss: After the other Talons are taken out, he himself is the last opponent Batman and Damian face.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Played with. After he has slaughtered half of the Court of Owls, he ditches his mask and doesn't wear it again for the remainder of the film.
  • No Name Given: His real name has not been revealed, even when he was a child.
  • Ominous Owl: Unsurprisingly his owl-themed helmet invokes this motif.
  • Self-Made Orphan: After a botched robbery, Talon's father brutally punches him in a drunken rage. In retaliation, the boy calls the police, and is seen staring triumphantly when his dad dies in the ensuing confrontation.
  • Slasher Smile: When Robin chooses to spare his life, Talon responds by staring at the boy with a wicked smile and commiting suicide.
  • The Starscream: Talon kills the Grandmaster of the Court of Owls and takes over the undead Talons to conduct his own personal mission to kill Batman.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Played with. Shortly before he dies, he entrusts his pocket watch to Robin, but the hero throws it away in disgust.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted. Talon introduces himself as a vigilante analog to Batman, except without a "misguided moral code"; claiming that "the ends justify the means" when it comes to fighting criminals. However, his intentions are much more selfish, as his true goal was to convince Robin to take his place in the Court of Owls.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Talon murders all members of the Court of Owls, some of whom were still children. He also tries to kill Robin after the latter repeatedly refuses to join him during the final battle.

    The Grandmaster/Samantha Vanaver 
Appearances: Batman vs. Robin
Voiced By: Grey DeLisle (regular voice); Robin Atkin Downes (as the Grandmaster)
The current leader of the Court of Owls.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: She's a dangerous threat, being the one leading the Court of Owls, but she crumbles rather easily once Talon turns on her and the rest of the Court.

    Scarecrow/Jonathan Crane 

  • Adaptational Badass: Scarecrow is usually the least-physically imposing member of Batman's rogues gallery, but in Hush he holds his own against Nightwing and Catwoman.
  • Civvie Spandex: In his debut, he wore a trench coat with the only real super villain costume bit being his mask.
  • Costume Evolution: In the Nightwing and Robin short attached to Throne of Atlantis, he's shown wearing Civvie Spandex ala his The Dark Knight Trilogy counterpart. In Hush, he wears an actual costume like other incarnations.

    Black Mask/Roman Sionis 
Appearances: Batman: Bad Blood
Voiced By: Steve Blum
An sadistic and aggressive mobster that wears a black mask. Eventually the mask is burned into his head.
  • Evil vs. Evil: He and the Heretic are locked in a gang war during the events of Bad Blood. Considering that the Heretic, his team and his backer are all dead while the last time Sionis was seen, he was alive (with the mask he was wearing burning into his face but since he survived in the comics, it's likely he did so here), it looks like he came out on top.
  • Facial Horror: His mask gets burned into his face like in the comics.
  • Malevolent Masked Men: Ruthless mobster who wears a skull-like black mask.

A Bludhaven mobster with a strange skin condition.
  • The Brute: While he is actually smart, he prefers to use brute force rather than his brains.
  • Sole Survivor: The only villain working for Heretic that lives to see another movie.

    The Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot 
A penguin-themed mobster and a major part of Gotham's criminal underworld.
  • The Cameo: Briefly appears at the very end of Bad Blood, and then only in the montage of Batman and Catwoman fighting villains in Hush.

    Professor Pyg/Lazlo Valentine
"I'm a surgeon. I've seen bodies before."
Voiced By: James Urbaniak

A deranged doctor in a pig mask with a penchant for performing horrifying surgeries.

  • Abled in the Adaptation: Professor Pyg in the comics is somehow even more crazed and deranged than the Joker, due to only speaking through incoherent gibberish. Here, he is capable of proper communication and more mentally sound.
  • Asshole Victim: Nobody is particularly disturbed to see Pyg's brains blown out of his head by Savage.
  • Boom, Headshot!: His manner of death offscreen by Vandal Savage.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: He ogles Knockout bathing while he is tied up, much to Scandal's annoyance. He scoffs at it saying he is used to seeing naked bodies all the time.
  • Evil Genius: To Vandal Savage, albeit unwillingly.
  • Kidnapped Scientist: Scandal Savage captures him at the start of Hell to Pay so he could perform a special surgery that only someone deranged like him could do it. Insert the "Get Out of Hell" Card inside Vandal Savage's body and rig it so that when he dies, the Card will be used up on him.
  • Mad Doctor: He uses his surgical skills to twist his victims horribly. His minions were people horribly disfigured by him (though nowhere near as terrible as the Dollotrons from the comics) and at the start of the movie, he is in the process of performing a operation in Two-Face that will turn his entire face completely disfigured and erase his Harvey Dent personality. He is about to start this by inserting a needle in his eye before Scandal interrupts him.
  • Malevolent Masked Man: As his name indicates, he wears a pig mask.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: On the receiving end of this trope after completing his surgery, Vandal executes him for having no further use for him.

Appearances: Batman: Hush
Voiced By: Geoffrey Arend

A mysterious criminal that covers his face with bandages and has a vendetta against Batman.

  • Adaptational Wimp: Tommy Elliot is just a normal doctor as opposed to a highly trained opponent. And The Riddler, one of Batman’s most notorious and iconic foes, is referred to as a “C-lister” who Batman actively believes is not as major a threat as his other foes, and is implied to be a bit of a joke among other villains.
  • Bandaged Face: Upon adopting the identity of Hush, Nygma discards his Riddler outfit and opts to cover his face with bandages, which conceal his true identity.
  • Big Bad: He is the titular antagonist of Batman: Hush, recruiting or blackmailing multiple members of Batman's rogue gallery in an elaborate scheme to kill Batman and stop being seen as a joke by the other criminals.
  • Composite Character: In the comics, Hush is Thomas Elliot, who allies himself with the Riddler as the two concoct a plan to end Batman's life. In the film, Hush is the Riddler himself, who is the sole antagonist Batman faces during the film's climax.
  • Death by Adaptation: Played with. In the comics, the Riddler survives the events of the story. However, since the film makes him the true identity of Hush, he dies much like the eponymous character, with Catwoman dropping him into a pool of scorching chemicals in the recycling factory during the climactic final battle.
  • Dude Where Is My Respect: The entire reason why he has a vendetta against Batman and many others is because they never took him seriously as a criminal.
  • Killed Off for Real: The Riddler, one of Batman’s most notorious enemies, is killed off at the climax of his first appearance in this canon.
  • Meaningful Name: Because this is the Riddler's new Secret Identity, he had to keep who he was "hush-hush".
  • Mythology Gag: He sports his original New 52 design before he was reverted to the more known green tux with derby hat.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Upon bathing in the Lazarus Pit, the Riddler correctly deduces Batman's secret identity in a matter of minutes; successfully manipulates Poison Ivy into mind controlling Bane and Catwoman to steal money that he could take for himself; and manipulates Batman into a series of events that break his spirit and cause him to nearly abandon his no-killing rule.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Riddler, apparent joke of the underworld, successfully manipulated every other major rogue, infiltrated a Lazarus Pit undetected, and almost killed both Batman and Catwoman and almost pushed Batman to break his one rule: no killing. Batman intentionally invokes this to psych Riddler out during their final fight to defeat him.

    Poison Ivy/Pamela Isley
Appearances: Batman: Hush
Voiced By: Peyton List

A criminal with the ability to manipulate plant life and mindcontrol humans.

  • The Baroness: Sexpot variety. Her employer/employee relationship with Catwoman even has shades of a dominatrix.
  • Curse Cut Short: Constantly she gets interrupted right as she's about to say a curse.
  • Leotard of Power: She wears one that looks like it was made of leaves.
  • Green Thumb: As always, her abilities allow her to grow and control plants at will.
  • Ms. Fanservice: A seductress that wears a tight leotard that emphasizes her cleavage and backside.
  • Weak, but Skilled: She's not a very skilled hand-to-hand fighter, but her ability to brainwash people compensates for it very well.

Voiced By: Adam Gifford

  • Adaptational Badass: He’s stronger than Bane usually is, being able to fight and kill multiple Paradooms in hand to hand combat during the LexCorp raid, something that would be suicide for anyone else.
  • Adaptational Dumbass: This Bane is a Dumb Muscle rather than the cunning planner of the comics.
  • Devoured by the Horde: He is devoured by the Paradooms during the last stand at LexCorp.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: His death in Apokolips War is obscured by the Paradooms swarming on him, but by the sounds of it, it was nasty.

    Mr. Freeze/Victor Fries 
Appearances: Batman: Hush

    Clayface/Basil Karlo 
Appearances: Batman: Hush

  • Early-Bird Cameo: A character named Ms. Clay who is said to be a part of Clayface that became sentient appears as a member of the Suicide Squad in the tie in comic to the movie Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Clayface can change his own body structure and the texture of his cells to disguise himself as other people and reshape his limbs to create weapons.

League of Assassins and Associates

    Deathstroke/Slade Wilson
Voiced By: Thomas Gibson (Son of Batman), Miguel Ferrer (The Judas Contract)

A former member of the League of Assassins who tried to usurp control away from Ra's al Ghul after Damian was born.

  • Adaptational Jerkass: This version of Slade is a lot more evil then his comic counterpart lacking any of his normal Noble Demon qualities. The only small remotely positive quality he has compared to his comic counterpart is that he's not shown sleeping with Terra in this incarnation, although it's still clear he's verbally grooming her at the very least and still betrays her and leaves her to die.
  • Adaptational Karma: Unlike the original version of The Judas Contract, where Slade manages to avoid going to prison, the Slade of the DCAMU is possibly dead or at least going to suffer pain and repercussions for his role.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In Son of Batman, he isn't quite as formidable as he was in the comics, being an even match for Damian and not even scoring a hit on Batman.
  • Bait the Dog: The Judas Contract does a good job of tricking the audience into thinking Slade might have some humanity, with flashbacks revealing that he saved Terra's life from a bigoted mob when she was a child, then raised her as a paternal figure and mentor. He also, unlike the comics, rebuffs her sexual advances. Except then it turns out he's still dangling the prospect of a sexual relationship in front of her to keep her under his control, and he's ultimately still a predator who's only ever viewed this traumatized girl as a tool instead of a person. He eventually betrays her and leaves her to die at Brother Blood's hands simply for a paycheck and shrugs off her betrayed reaction with the same deadpan humor he's been using throughout the film.
  • Big Bad: Of Son of Batman.
  • The Cameo: In Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, he is shown to be the assassin that killed Bronze Tiger's fiancé.
  • Composite Character: His role in the comic that Son of Batman was adapted from originally belonged to Talia.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In The Judas Contract, 90% of his lines are snark towards Brother Blood and the Titans.
  • The Dragon: He is hired by Brother Blood in The Judas Contract, kidnapping the Titans so that the latter can absorb their powers.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a menacing voice thanks to both Thomas Gibson and the late Miguel Ferrer.
  • Eye Scream: He loses his eye after Damian stabs him in his siege of the League's headquarters.
  • Eyepatch of Power: He sports an eyepatch after Damian stabs him in the eye, and the injury doesn't make him any less effective as a professional assassin.
  • Face Death with Dignity: When Terra's about to bring Brother Blood's lair collapsing down on top of them both, he just calmly resigns himself to it and tells her, "So long, kid." He's seemingly killed when he's brought down under the cracking ground he was on and buried under the rubble.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Everything he did in Son of Batman was motivated by jealousy towards Damian.
  • The Heavy: In The Judas Contract, he's working for Brother Blood, but he's the one moving the plot along and capturing the Titans on his boss's behalf.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: His enmity with Dick Grayson is transferred to Damian in his debut film. His animosity towards Nightwing is later showcased in The Judas Contract.
  • The Starscream: He tries to take over the League of Assassins after being rejected by Ra's al Ghul.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Deathstroke struggles against Batman and Damian in his first film. However, in The Judas Contract, he is able to capture all the Titans with some assistance from Terra, with the exception of Nightwing, who escapes but is unable to defeat him. He also gets into a fight with Dick and Damian and would have won had Terra not intervened.

    Ra's al Ghul 
Appearances: Son of Batman, Justice League vs. Teen Titans (Doppelganger)
Voiced By: Giancarlo Esposito (Son of Batman), Terrence C. Carson (Justice League vs. Teen Titans)
The founder and leader of the League of Shadows; an ancient eco-terrorist organization, and Damian's grandfather.

    Talia al Ghul
Voiced By: Morena Baccarin

The daughter of Ra's al Ghul, lover of Batman, and mother of Damian. In Batman: Bad Blood she becomes head of the League of Assassins.

  • Adaptational Heroism: In Son of Batman, her role as the villain of that story (based on "Batman and Son") is given to Deathstroke and she fit her traditional role of a Noble Demon. However, she does become more in line with Morrision's depiction in Bad Blood, being the Big Bad of that movie.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In Son of Batman, she is not as tough as her comic book counterpart, as she gets taken out by Deathstroke almost immediately when she invades his stronghold. She gets better in Bad Blood, fighting evenly with Batwoman.
  • Archnemesis Mom: To Damian in Batman: Bad Blood, since she is now the Big Bad and has become a pure sociopath. When he tells her she has none of her father's ambition, her response is to order Batman to execute him.
  • Big Bad: Orchestrates the main conflict of Batman: Bad Blood, brainwashing the hero and intending to do the same to the world leaders.
  • Came Back Wrong: In Son of Batman, Talia is an Anti-Hero who clearly cares about Batman and Damian's well-being. During the climax of the film, she is shot by Deathstroke, forcing Batman to use a Lazarus Pit to bring her back to life. However, the procedure twists her mind, and by her next appearance, she treats the two heroes as nothing but pawns she can use to further her goal of world domination.
  • The Cameo: She makes a brief appearance in Batman vs. Robin, as one of the corpses in Batman's toxin-induced hallucinations.
  • Decomposite Character:
    • She was the main villain of "Batman and Son", the story Son of Batman was based on, but the animation gives her role to Deathstroke instead.
    • With Batman: Bad Blood ending with her death, and elements of Forever Evil being folded into Reign of the Supermen, Batman: Hush gives her role as Batman's contact in Lexcorp to Lex Luthor himself.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Closely resembles her own voice actress.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She wears a Spy Catsuit that shows off her curves, legs, and incredible body and shows her buxom cleavage in full view.
  • Never Found the Body: After escaping in Batman: Bad Blood, she is attacked by Onyx, who stowed aboard her shuttle. The shuttle crashes and explodes, and it's heavily implied Talia took a katana to the face just before.
  • Offing the Offspring: In Bad Blood, Talia personally kills the Heretic when he hugs her and begs to be loved as a son, calling him a flawed specimen. Later on, she orders Batman to execute Damian, reasoning that if her own son chooses to oppose her, she should just make another one instead.
  • The Sociopath: In Bad Blood, Talia interprets Heretic's longing for affection as a "flaw" and coldly decides to kill him. She is also shown to be a master manipulator, as she threatens to commit suicide later on, knowing that the heroes would be too shocked by her speech to react to her escape attempt.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In between the events of Son of Batman and Batman: Bad Blood, Talia has grown in ruthlessness, combat, and sociopathy.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: She took one hell of one, from a caring if aloof mother and ally of Batman to a pure sociopathic monster who even kills a clone of her son as he begs her to give him a soul and threatens to do the same to Damian. Not only that but she implies she only had him to get close to Bruce.
  • Yandere: She drugs, rapes and psychologically tortures Batman in her attempts to gain his loyalty.

Appearances: Son of Batman
Voiced By: Bruce Thomas
Ra's Al-Ghul's former personal bodyguard and servant, who betrayed him and joined Deathstroke.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Most versions of Ubu are loyal to Ra's al Ghul. Here, Ubu betrays him and works with his enemy Deathstroke.
  • Bald of Evil: Completely bald and serves Deathstroke.
  • Defiant to the End: Even when Damian threatens to kill him if he doesn't reveal Deathstroke's location, he still refuses to talk.
  • The Dragon: Serves as this to Deathstroke after betraying Ra's Al-Ghul.
  • Hookers and Blow: It becomes pretty much his lifestyle, which could be the reason why he was susceptible to Deathstroke's temptations.
  • In Name Only: Usually, Ubu's main characterization trait is his Undying Loyalty towards Ra's al Ghul. This version of the character, on the other hand, doesn't have any remorse at betraying him.
  • Wolverine Claws: He uses a pair of four-clawed gauntlets to fight.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He has no problem with fighting Damian Wayne, the young grandchild of his former master.

Appearances: Batman: Bad Blood

  • Cloning Blues: He is an accelerated clone of Damian, and his plan is to steal Damian's memories so he will "have a soul". Talia cruelly mocks his issues and murders him.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: Seems to be the main physical threat for the Bat-Family, until Talia coldly murders him.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His voice is even deeper than Batman's, and he is the leading antagonist for the first half of Bad Blood.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: The Dramatic Unmask shows clearly that he looks just like Bruce and Talia, as he is a grown up version of Damian.
  • Tragic Villain: Prior to his death, he yells that his entire life has been nothing but suffering, as he has never been shown affection despite always following Talia's orders. He begs her to let him drain Damian's memories in order to understand what it's like to have a mother, but she coldly murders him instead.

Appearances: Batman: Bad Blood

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the comics she's a former member of the League of Assassins who becomes an ally of the Bat-Family and the Birds of Prey, but here she's working for Heretic.
  • Avenging the Villain: Goes after Talia to avenge the murder of Heretic
  • Bald Women: Like in the comics she's completely bald.
  • The Quiet One: She doesn't speak during the movie.

Appearances: Batman: Bad Blood

    The Mad Hatter/Jervis Tetch 
Appearances: Batman: Bad Blood

  • Beard of Evil: Has a beard and has no problem mind probing Bruce.
  • C-List Fodder: He's actually the most recognizable of the villains recruited by Heretic, but dies like all others.
  • Mind Rape: Subjects Bruce to one of this.
  • Nice Hat: His signature top hat, which comes with blades capable of slitting throats. Tusk wonders why does he bother to bring it with them.
  • Your Head Asplode: During the battle a massive electrical feedback accidentally sent into his hat's mind control device causes his head to explode into a cloud of red particles.

Appearances: Batman: Bad Blood
Voiced By: John DiMaggio

  • The Brute: He serves as the main muscle for Heretic's group.
  • Pig Man: Like his name implies, he looks like a boar or a pig man.

Titans Enemies

Voiced By: Jon Bernthal (Justice League VS. Teen Titans), John DiMaggio (Apokolips War)

A demon that was summoned by a cult to cross over to Earth, he fathered a girl named Raven to herald his imminent return.

  • Abusive Parents: He psychologically torments Raven as he tries to convince her to set him free, and also sends his minions to attack her when she repeatedly refuses to listen to him.
  • Achilles' Heel: Other than the crystal that can seal him away, nothing else can stop him.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Zig-Zagged. It's heavily implied that this incarnation committed rape to conceive Raven, yet he seems to genuinely care about his daughter and wants her to be with him, in his own horribly dysfunctional way — compare that to how the cartoon series' Trigon used Raven as a Human Sacrifice and casually tried to murder her. Also interestingly, he never threatens to physically harm or kill Raven herself, even when irate, instead threatening her friends and loved ones.
  • And I Must Scream:
    • Gets sealed inside the gem on Raven's forehead. He can do nothing but scream in despair.
    • His fate in Apokolips War — trapped in a void — is little better, but at least there he can wail on Darkseid for all eternity. Possibly subverted, because he seems to be amused by the idea of dragging Darkseid into oblivion.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Subverted. Though Raven initially appears to despise Trigon, the films vaguely hint that she truly wishes to be loved by him. In Apokolips War, she tells Damian that even bad fathers love their children, and sadly bids Trigon farewell as he stays behind to fight Darkseid during the film's climax.
  • Big Bad: For Justice League Vs Teen Titans. His minions possess the Justice League and wreak havoc, in an attempt to convince Raven to submit to his will and release him into Earth.
  • Big Red Devil: Trigon looks like a typical demon, being a horned humanoid with red skin. In his original appearance, he was as tall as a skyscraper, though he can change his size down to Superman's height.
  • Blood Knight: Appears to be absolutely thrilled at the prospect of being trapped in null space with Darkseid as a punching bag for eternity, even calling it "a wonderful gift".
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He has absolutely no regard for the welbeing of almost anybody other than himself, but during the final act of Apokolips War he proves that despite being one of the most evil characters in the series, he still has a modicum of genuine affection for his daughter.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: When he was summoned by Raven's mother, he assumed the form of a handsome male to easily seduce her. Up until they were actually in bed, when he revealed his true form to her...
  • Godzilla Threshold:He becomes the heroes' last hope of defeating Darkseid, and is released by Constantine to distract the alien while the remaining character escape Apokolips.
  • Horns of Villainy: He has two massive ones sprouting out the top of his head.
  • The Juggernaut: Once he is summoned to Earth, he is absolutely impossible to beat back or slow down. Not even by Superman, Wonder Woman and the Flash. It takes Raven sealing him back in one of the crystals shards to stop his onslaught.Darkseid manages to tank his blows for a while, but even then Trigon is clearly winning the fight.
  • Pet the Dog: He tells Raven to be well before he drags Darkseid into the boomtube Cyborg opens, knowing full well that he'll be trapped in there forever.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: It's implied that Raven was conceived by him forcing himself on her mother.
  • Satanic Archetype: He even is referred as Satan by other Titans, before Raven revealed his true name.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can:
    • Trigon was trapped inside a crystal by Raven, and spends the entirety of his debut film trying to convince her to unleash him on Earth. Though he succeeds after his minions threaten to kill her friends, Raven soon gains the resolve to seal him back during the film's climax.
    • Trigon remains trapped within Raven's gem in subsequent films. The seal is broken once more in Apokolips War, when Raven succumbs to despair after witnessing Damian's death.
  • Taking You with Me: He grabs Darkseid to ensue they both get sucked into the Boom Tube Cyborg opened.
  • Villainous Rescue: He incidentally ends up rescuing the Justice League from Darkseid during the final act of Apokolips War when he finally breaks Raven's seal and along with Cyborg ultimately ends up being the one to defeat Darkseid for good.

    Brother Blood
Voiced By: Gregg Henry

The leader of the H.I.V.E terrorist organization and its public cover, the Church of Blood. He desires to kill the Titans and absorb their life-force and superpowers so that he may become a living god.

  • All Your Powers Combined: He absorbs the Titans' powers, which changes his physical appearance into an amalgamation of them.
  • Ambiguously Human: He is somehow able to stop aging as long as he bathes in the blood of others, and even he has no idea where this ability comes from. He believes that destiny granted him this ability so that he might live long enough to one day ascend to godhood, but this is obviously a delusion and unsurprisingly fails to come to pass. It is entirely possible that he is merely just an unusually old metahuman and his ability is just a genetic quirk of fate.
  • Big Bad: The central antagonist of The Judas Contract.
  • Composite Character: He combines Brother Blood from the comics with the H.I.V.E Master. This is not the first time this has happened either.
  • Dark Messiah: He believes himself to be this, as he operates under the delusion that he is some sort of chosen one, although this is really just a rationalisation as he actually has no idea where his immortality comes from and just assumes he must be destined to rule over the world as a god once the right super-tech falls into his hands.
  • Godhood Seeker: His motivation, as he states many times, is to become a god.
  • It's All About Me: Blood has a truly monstrous ego to the point that he murders journalists for questioning him and considers the Titans to be "sinning" against him by trying to thwart his schemes. His cult is entirely built around devotion to himself and absolutely everyone in it is expendable to his ambitions.
  • Large Ham: Throughout the climax of the movie, he really starts Chewing the Scenery.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: He keeps on getting interrupted during the final battle, with even his last words going incomplete.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Bathing in the blood of his enemies has somehow prevented him from ageing for centuries.
  • Sinister Minister: He's the leader of his own Religion of Evil.
  • Smug Snake: As a centuries old cult leader, he is comparable to Ra's Al Ghul, but it isn't favourable since Ra's was a Wicked Cultured Noble Demon who cared for his family and was honestly trying to improve the world, while Blood is just a murderous, self-indulgent Jerkass who doesn't give a damn about anyone but himself and who thinks that the only real problem with the world is that everyone is not worshipping him. He thinks he is destined to ascend to godhood...but it's all a delusion.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He has one as he starts losing and his headquarters starts getting destroyed.

Legion of Doom

    Lex Luthor
Voiced By: Steve Blum (Throne of Atlantis, Justice League Vs. Teen Titans), Rainn Wilson (all other appearances)

Superman's archenemy and founder of the Legion of Doom.

  • Abusive Parents: Lex is Superboy's Glorified Sperm Donor and initially his chief adult figure, but there is no affection between them. He's a Bad Boss rather than a father, deciding to kill Superboy after one too many disappointments. He literally has the syringe in his hand before he changes his mind... and kills Dabney Donovan instead.
  • Archenemy: Subverted. He's Superman's classic archfoe, which gets referenced by him fighting Superman in Justice League vs. Teen Titans. However, in subsequent films the two form an unlikely alliance to stop Darkseid, who is a mutual, far worse enemy, leading to Luthor being inducted into the Justice League.
  • Anti-Villain: Lex Luthor is a despicable human being with little empathy for those other than himself. However, he willingly assists the Justice League in their battles against Doomsday, Cyborg Superman, Hush and Darkseid; and seems genuinely hurt when Batman tells to his face that he doesn't consider him to be a legitimate member of the League.
  • Bad Boss: He has Dabney Donovan beaten for failing to recognize Lois and talking to her about Superboy, used Mercy as a Human Shield against the Eradicator, and has Donovan killed for telling Superboy about his true origins as a hybrid clone of Superman and Luthor.
  • Composite Character: His role in the comic version of Batman: Hush was to set-up the first arc of Superman/Batman. In the animated version, he takes Talia's role as the person in Lexcorp to help Batman find Ivy.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Despite his only scene in Justice League Vs. Teen Titans being a fight against the League, he refers to himself as a business man. Later movies confirm this by showing him running LexCorp.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He is voiced by Steve Blum in his earliest appearances and thus has a deep voice. Averted when voiced by Rainn Wilson, as his voice is considerably softer.
  • Hazy Feel Turn: Lex never stops being a morally repugnant person but manages to play a key role in the heroes’ efforts during Reign of the Supermen. By the end of the credits, he’s joined the Justice League.
  • Karma Houdini: The Death of Superman shows that the worst Luthor got for his actions on JLvTS was house arrest and even that is lifted by the end of the movie. By Reign of the Supermen, he’s guilty of crimes including unethical genetic experiments and murder and not only does he not pay for his crimes, he joins the Justice League in The Stinger.
  • Obvious Judas: In-Universe. Batman does not attempt to hide his distrust towards Luthor in Apokolips War, telling Darkseid that Luthor only serves him out of fear and interrogating Lex once the heroes launch their assault on the Apokoliptian Reapers. However, it's not until Lex teleports Constantine's group to Apokolips that Batman finally decides he's had enough and sends the Paradooms to murder him.
  • Powered Armor: His appearance in JLvTT depicted him in his trademark green and purple battle armor.
  • The Mole: Taking the identity of "Slipper", he was leaking information about Darkseid's activities to Lois Lane in Apokolips War.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: Clearly hopes to invoke this, between his talk about being a concerned businessman and telling Superman he'll pay for the destroyed armor.

    Solomon Grundy

An undead zombie recruited by Lex Luthor to be a member of the Legion of Doom.

Voiced By: Kimberly Brooks

Wonder Woman's archfoe and a member of the Legion of Doom.

  • Archenemy: Wonder Woman's arch-foe, a fact cemented by Wonder Woman confronting her on her own and Cheetah's attempt to ambush Diana.
  • Catgirl: Like some versions, she's depicted with feline attributes.
  • Dark Action Girl: The only female member of the Legion and one of the strongest if she can handle herself against Wonder Woman.
  • Designated Girl Fight: Her only purpose is to fight Wonder Woman, both of them being the only female members of their teams.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: She is always barefooted as a result of her transformation giving her clawed feet.
  • Full-Frontal Assault: Fights in the nude since she's covered in cheetah fur.
  • Murderous Thighs: Feints a vertical kick to wrap her legs around Wonder Woman's neck and give her a back scratch.
  • One-Winged Angel: In Wonder Woman: Bloodlines she takes a serum that transforms her into a hulking cheetah monster.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female member of the Legion of Doom.
  • The Speechless: She doesn't talk in her appearance. This would later became averted in Wonder Woman: Bloodlines.

    Weather Wizard

An enemy of the Flash, he can control the weather with a device designed to look like a wand.

  • Demonic Possession: The plot of JLvTT is kicked off by him being possessed by one of Trigon's children.
  • Weather-Control Machine: As in several other versions, his "wand" is a device that can let him control the weather.
  • Weather Manipulation: When possessed by a demon, he displays the ability to control the weather without the aid of his tech.

Voiced By: Steve Blum

A villain who used robots made to look like toys as part of his crimes.

Villainy Incorporated

Voiced By: Kimberly Brooks

  • The Cameo: She can be briefly seen cheering for Harley Quinn during the latter's battle against Lois Lane in Apokolips War. However, she does not join the battle against the Paradooms and vanishes for the rest of the movie.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in the tie-in comic to Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, recruited by enemies of Scandal Savage and then takes on the Squad, who take her down alive because Amanda Waller decides to also "recruit" Giganta.
  • Sizeshifter: Her only ability is to grow to a bigger size, which subsequently grants her enhanced strength.

    Silver Swan 
Appearances: Wonder Woman: Bloodlines
Voiced By: Marie Avgeropoulos

  • Abusive Parents: Her mother was insanely strict on her, to the point of making her doubt her own aspirations in life
  • Tragic Villain: She was driven to villainy due to her mother's emotional neglect and jealousy of Diana.

    Doctor Cyber 
Appearances: Wonder Woman: Bloodlines
Voiced By: Mozhan Marno

  • Deadpan Snarker: She's very dry with her words and seems to just eternally be done with everyone's shit. The most notable example is when the ship herself, Dr. Poison, Silver Swan and Medusa are on is being hit by arrows. On the inside of the ship, though, it just looks like turbulence. Dr. Cyber's response is this:
    Dr. Cyber: This is why I don't like being in the field.
  • Only in It for the Money: Diana (incorrectly) assumes Poison and Cyber are executing their elaborate plan for vengeance. Cyber is quick to correct her.
    Dr. Cyber: This isn't about vengeance. It's about money.
  • The Faceless: She wears a full face mask and bodysuit and spends the vast majority of the movie working behind the scenes. She isn't even seen in person until one of her final scenes of the movie. Unlike with Dr. Poison, however, we never see what's under Dr. Cyber's suit or mask.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: She wasn't part of any prior version of Villany Inc.

    Doctor Poison 

Appearances: Wonder Woman: Bloodlines
Voiced By: Cree Summer
The Gorgon herself.
  • Cute Monster Girl: She is horrifically evil and has snakes for her hair, but at the same time she has curves in all the right places, mixed well with musculature.

    Veronica Cale 


    Vandal Savage
Appearances: Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay
Voiced By: Jim Pirri

A millennia old immortal caveman who's posed as various figures throughout history.

  • Abusive Parents: He has no qualms about executing his daughter's lover in front of her eyes, no less.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Most incarnations of Savage possess Complete Immortality (so much so that in the comics, the Spectre laments being unable to punish him for his crimes due to his immortality). This version only has a Healing Factor and even then worries about dying, which ends up happening. Subverted in the tie-in comic when it's revealed that he survived.
  • Asshole Victim: Gets killed by Zoom when the Card is removed from his body, and it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy.
  • Bad Boss: Orders his men to shoot Knockout when she is in their line of fire, saying she is expendable.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Professor Zoom and Waller in Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay.
  • Immortals Fear Death: More like "Immortals Fear Going to Hell". Until the emergence of superheroes, he never really worried about the possibility of dying. But after too many brushes with death, he worries that his time will come soon and he will be damned to Hell when that happens. This is why he is after the Card so he can secure his surgery.
  • Immortality: He is a 5000-year old caveman who gained eternal life after being exposed to a meteor's radiation.
  • Julius Beethoven da Vinci: He is said to have been Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar and Genghis Khan.
  • Meatgrinder Surgery: He subjects himself to one by Professor Pyg to insert the Card inside his own body, just in case someone tries to kill him and it's rigged in such a way that trying to remove it would do just that, effectively using up the Card. He survives this procedure until Zoom manages to remove it with his intangibility powers, killing Savage in the process.
  • Not Quite Dead: The comic hints that he may have survived and his daughter Scandal wants to kill him once and for all.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: Vandal Savage has been traditionally an enemy to the Justice League and many individual heroes, but he is made an antagonist to the Suicide Squad in Hell to Pay.
  • Tarot Troubles: He's represented by the Death card in Madame Xanadu's deck.

    Eobard Thawne/Professor Zoom

A scientist turned criminal from the 25th century, archenemy of The Flash.

  • Adaptational Wimp: Deadshot noted that Zoom isn't nearly as fast as he normal is and he even had to restort to driving to get around. This trope is justified because he's using the Speed Force to prolong what little life he has left and using his Super Speed causes it to burn faster.
  • Archenemy: Is The Flash's worst enemy and is completely dedicated to erasing Barry Allen from history.
  • Bad Boss: Towards The Rogues. He hires them to break into the Flash Museum and capture Barry, then when they succeed, plants tiny 25th century explosives on them in a bid to kill Allen, fully content with his hired help dying in the blast as well.
  • Benevolent Boss: He's surprisingly pretty good to his crew in his second movie appearance. Given that he's on the verge of dying, he probably knows he can't afford to treat them like crap.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Vandal Savage and Waller in Hell to Pay, as they are all horrible people who want to get their hands on the same MacGuffin. He comes out as the biggest threat after offing Vandal.
  • Black Eyes of Crazy: He has black sclera and red eyes.
  • Body Horror: Has a large gaping hole in his forehead as a result of getting shot in the head in his second movie appearance.
  • Boom, Headshot!:
    • In The Flashpoint Paradox, Zoom receives a bullet through the brain courtesy of Flashpoint Batman.
    • In Hell to Pay, the Coup de Grâce that Deadshot gives him is another headshot through the same hole the previous bullet went through.
  • Composite Character: He has the red and black eyes of Hunter Zolomon. He also takes some traits from The Flash (2014)'s take on Savitar in Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, seeing as how he also recruits Killer Frost as his dragon and has to complete his objectives on borrowed time.
  • Dissonant Serenity: During the battle between the Amazons and Atlantians in London, Zoom makes his presence known to The Flash by stepping out of the backroom of a cafe complete with java in hand, sipping it nonchalantly and greeting Barry like an old pal.
  • Drama-Preserving Handicap: A speedster like Thawne - who unlike The Flash, has zero qualms about killing - would normally make quick work of Badass Normals and street-level Metahumans. He is much slower and weaker here due to using the Speed Force to stretch out his death as long as possible before he can get his hands on the Card.
  • Evil Gloating: His tendency to monologue was his downfall in both films he appears in. In Flashpoint Paradox, he is too busy taunting Flash to notice Batman sneaking behind him and taking aim at his head. In Hell to Pay, he teases Deadshot by showing him he has acquired the magic card, only for Bronze Tiger to amputate his fingers with a thrown dagger.
  • Hannibal Lecture: In the climax of The Flashpoint Paradox, Barry asks Zoom what he has done with the world. The villain quickly turns the tables on him by revealing that Barry's misuse of the Speed Force was the true reason for the altered timeline, then further breaks his spirit by asking who the real villain is.
  • Karmic Death: He dies of a No Kill Like Overkill, being shot down by a ton of bullets from Deadshot in a very painful and drawn-out death. This was not long after he did a very similar thing by cutting Bronze Tiger several times with a knife.
  • Living on Borrowed Time: Throughout Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay, it's revealed that he survived getting his brains blown out by Flashpoint!Batman by drawing the Speed Force into his own body. However, Thawne knows he can only prolong the inevitable for so long, and is searching for the "Get Out of Hell Free" card so that when his time runs out, he can die and pass onto the afterlife unpunished.
  • Multiple Gunshot Death: His apparent final death in Hell to Pay, courtesy of Deadshot.
  • Not Afraid to Die: In The Flashpoint Paradox, he's completely unafraid of dying. As long as Flash suffers and dies in the end, he is content.
  • Plot Twist: As it turns out, Thawne managed to survive his death in the Flashpoint timeline by absorbing the Speed Force into him just prior to death and passed in to the main timeline. This is a major plot thread in Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay as he can only extend his life for so long and is seeking out the Get Out Of Hell Free card so that when his Speed Force reserve is depleted and he dies, he can pass into the afterlife unpunished.
  • Precision F-Strike: Rarely, if ever, swearing, Thawne's last words were "Fuck my life".
  • Profane Last Words: His last words after Deadshot shot him were "Fuck my life".
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Glowing red and not the nicest guy around.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: While best-known as the Flash's Arch-Enemy, Hell to Pay makes him the primary antagonist of the Suicide Squad.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: More often than not speaks in a soft, raspy whisper, and is a complete and utter sociopath to boot.
  • The Sociopath: Batman calls him one in-universe, and he's definitely not wrong. Even among the Darker and Edgier villains found in this continuity, Zoom stands out by being driven not by power or greed, but by his overwhelming hatred of Barry Allen and will stop at nothing to torment his hated foe. He's even willing to let the world be destroyed and be among those killed if it means Flash will die too.
  • Villain Ball:
    • Rather than simply kill Barry in the Flashpoint timeline and be done with it, Thawne insists on beating him to a pulp and monologuing about how everything is Barry's fault. This gives Flashpoint Batman the perfect opportunity to shoot him in the back of the head and give Barry the needed Speed Force energy to undo Flashpoint.
    • In Hell to Pay, whenever he gets his hands on the card, he doesn't let himself die so he can go to Heaven. This enables Killer Frost to double cross him and steal the card. When he reclaims it later, he tries to goad Deadshot into killing him, giving Bronze Tiger time to slice his fingers off and make him vulnerable.
  • Villainous Valor: He is a despicable monster who is ultimately motivated by his own selfish desire to save himself, but it's still remarkable that he is using every ounce of his being to keep himself alive a little longer and is way more vulnerable than what he normally is as a result.

    Scandal Savage
Voiced By: Dania Ramirez

Vandal Savage's daughter and enforcer.

  • Adaptational Wimp: The original Scandal inherited her father's healing factor. There is no mention whether she has it too, and is a Badass Normal otherwise.
  • Ambiguously Brown: She has a distinctive tan and a Latin-American accent, indicating that she is from Brazil just like in the original comics. The Hell to Pay tie-in comic has her speaking in Spanish for some reason.
  • Battle Couple: She is in a relationship with Knockout, and they are both Action Girls who oppose the Suicide Squad.
  • Butch Lesbian: Ironically, despite her lover being an Amazonian Beauty, she is explicitly more masculine than her. Steel Maxum refers to her as a "butch" when telling his story to Task Force X.
  • Dark Action Girl: Scandal is fast, nimble and deadly with her Wolverine Claws.
  • The Dragon: She is her father Vandal's second-in-command. However, she turns on him after he kills her girlfriend in cold blood.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: She is a ruthless assassin who is also in a loving relationship with her partner-in-crime.
  • Gayngster: Scandal is a lesbian and works for her father's criminal organization.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: She turns on her father and tips his hideout to the Suicide Squad after he coldly tries to execute her girlfriend before her eyes.
  • Wolverine Claws: Her weapons of choice are two gloves with retractable blades.

A New God from Apokolips currently in service to Vandal Savage.

  • Adaptational Wimp: New Gods are normally more resilient to conventional damage than humans. Knockout is gravely wounded by Vandal's gunmen.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Being tall and muscled doesn't detract her beauty one bit. Not even Steel Maxum is deterred by it.
  • Battle Couple: In all her action scenes, she fights alongside her equally deadly girlfriend, Scandal.
  • The Brute: Being an Apokoliptian, she is the most physically strong of Vandal's thugs. She also pulls double duty as The Dark Chick since she is able to seduce Maxum Steel in order to successfully steal the "Get Out of Hell" card from him.
  • Chainmail Bikini: Knockout wears an Apokoliptian battle armour, which she compares to Wonder Woman's outfit.
  • Dark Action Girl: She is superstrong and hits like a truck, but is working for a megalomaniacal supervillain.
  • Evil Redhead: Has red hair and is an Apokoliptian currently in service to a immortal supervillain.
  • Gayngster: Knockout is a lesbian and used to be one of the New Gods, a race of alien beings that assisted Darkseid in his quest to conquer the universe. Defecting to Earth, she started a relationship with Scandal Savage, who made her a member of Vandal Savage's criminal organization.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: In contrast to Scandal's Butch Lesbian, Knockout is more conventionally feminine and willing to use her wiles to get her way.
  • Made of Iron: Downplayed. She survives after being pumped full with bullets by Vandal's henchmen and later getting shot in the face by him, but she is left in a critical condition in the hospital.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She is not only extremely voluptuous and seductive, but she is also the very first female character to appear explicitly nude in this continuity.
  • Physical God: She makes an off-handed mention about coming from Apokolips, confirming that she is indeed a New God.
  • Uncertain Doom: Knockout is last seen being hospitalized with her life hanging by a thread. The follow-up comic shows she ultimately survived.
