Justice League Enemies

    Darkseid 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/justiceleaguewardarkseid01.jpg
Voiced By: Steve Blum (War), Tony Todd (Reign of the Supermen)

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


  • Big Bad: For Justice League: War.
  • 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 Beam, the League teams up to destroy each of his eyes.
  • 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 ofthe New Gods.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Of the Death/Regin duology, given he created Doomsday and made Hank Henshaw into Cyborg-Superman.
  • 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.
  • 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 afterward) in his debut.

    Ocean Master 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ocean_master_jltoa_1.png
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.


  • Necessary Evil: He hijacks a human submarine and has it attack Atlantean civilians to justify war against the surface world.
  • Self-Made Orphan: Killed his mother after she discovered his treachery and tried to stop him.
  • The Sociopath: Lies and manipulates his way to power, and murders his own mother without a hint of remorse.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: At the end of Throne of Atlantis, Lex offers him to join his Legion of Doom, likely intending to get revenge on Aquaman. But he hasn't been seen since.

    Destiny 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hyxdun8.png
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 Eternal 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. 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.
  • 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.
  • Hero Killer: He definitely killed Jason Blood, and he may or may not have killed Swamp Thing.
  • 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.

Superman Enemies

    Doomsday 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/doomsday_9.png


  • Adaptational Backstory Change: Originally created in an experiment to create the Ultimate Life Form, here he's a Living Weapon created by Darksied specifically to kill Superman.
  • Ax-Crazy: It's Doomsday after all. The only thing he lives for is murder and destruction.
  • The Berserker: Doomsday fighting style is charge and crush especially since he's a raging, rampaging, monster.
  • Big Bad: Of The Death of Superman
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Neck Snap: Superman kills him by punching him so hard, his head does a full 180.
  • Power Incontinence: Doesn't have full control over his Eye Beams since they shoot out randomly.
  • Super Strength: Pretty much his main power along with his Eye Beams.
  • 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.
  • Unstoppable Rage: He is build on rage alone and one could argue he is the incarnation of wrath itself. He think 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.

    Cyborg Superman/Hank Henshaw 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reign_of_the_superman_5.jpg
Voiced By: Patrick Fabian (Hank Henshaw), Jerry O'Connell (Cyborg-Superman)

A former astronaut who becomes a cyborg supervillain bend 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Much like the comics, his plan is to tarnish Superman's legacy, blaming Superman for the death of his crew.

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

Batman Enemies

    Deathstroke/Slade Wilson 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teen_titans_the_judas_contract_deathstroke.jpg
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 Villainy: This version of Slade is a lot more evil then his comic counterpart lacking any of his normal Noble Demon qualities.
  • 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 implied to be the assassin that killed Bronze Tiger's girlfriend.
  • Composite Character: His role in the comic that Son of Batman was adapted from originally belonged to Talia.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In The Judas Contract where 90% of his lines are snark towards Brother Blood and the Titans.
  • The Dragon: For Brother Blood in The Judas Contract
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a menacing voice thanks to both Thomas Gibson and the late Miguel Ferrer.
  • Eye Scream: Here, 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.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Possibly. His death isn't confirmed but 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." Then 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 jealous 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.
  • The Starscream: He tries to take over the League of Assassins after being rejected by Ra's al Ghul.
  • Took a Level in Badass: See Adaptational Wimp above for Son of Batman but by The Judas Contract he is able to capture all the Titans with some assistance from Terra and the exception of Nightwing who escapes but cannot defeat him. He also gets into a fight with Dick and Damian and would have won the fight had Terra not intervened.

    Ra's al Ghul 
Voiced By: Giancarlo Esposito (Son of Batman), T.C. Carson (Justice League vs. Teen Titans)

    Talia Al-Ghul 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sobatman_talia.jpg
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 wasn't quite as tough either. She gets taken out by Deathstroke almost immediately when she invades his stronghold. She gets better.
  • Archnemesis Mom: To Damian in Batman: Bad Blood since she is now the Big Bad and has become a pure sociopath by then.
  • Big Bad: Of Batman: Bad Blood.
  • Decomposite Character: As noted under Adaptational Heroism, she, not Deathstroke, was the main villain of "Batman and Son", the story Son of Batman was based on.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She wears a Spy Catsuit that shows off her curves, legs, and incredible body and shows her buxom cleavage.
  • 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: Either if the offspring is a clone or her the one she gave birth to.
  • 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 would drug, rape, or psychologically torture Batman if it means he will love her.

    Professor Pyg/Lazlo Valentine 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pygsuicide_squad_hell_to_pay.jpg
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.

Titans Enemies

    Trigon 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trigon09jpg_c740c3_765w.jpg
Voiced By: Jon Bernthal

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: To Raven, unsurprisingly.
  • Achilles' Heel: Other than the crystal that can seal him away, nothing else can stop him.
  • And I Must Scream: His final fate; sealed inside the gem on Raven's forehead. He can do nothing but scream in despair.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To Raven.
  • Big Bad: For Justice League Vs Teen Titans™.
  • Big Red Devil: Same as his comic counterpart.
  • 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...
  • 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.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: It's implied that Raven was conceived by him forcing himself on her mother.
  • Satan: He is referred as such by other Titans, before Raven revealed his true name.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He was trapped inside a crystal by his daughter after, but he managed to break free eventually. He goes back in his can at the film's end, but then, what were you expecting?

    Brother Blood 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_347.jpg
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.
  • A God Am I: 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/justice_league_vs_teen_titans_legion_of_doom_1.png
Voiced By: Steve Blum (Throne of Atlantis, Justice League Vs. Teen Titans), Rainn Wilson (The Death of Superman, Reign of the Supermen)

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.
    • How bad? At one point, he decides 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: He's Superman's archfoe, a fact cemented by his fighting Superman in Justice League vs. Teen Titans.
  • 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.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Despite his actions, he refers to himself a business man in Justice League Vs. Teen Titans. Later movies show him running LexCorp.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He is voiced by Steve Blum in his earliest appearances and thus as a deep voice.
    • Averted when voiced by Rainn Wilson.
  • 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 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.
  • Powered Armor: His appearance in JLvTT depicted him in his trademark green and purple battle armor.
  • 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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_o4t36jsl5q1r811rmo4_400.png

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


    Cheetah 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_o4vp2y691k1tbuk16o3_1280.png

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


  • Archenemy: Wonder Woman's archfoe, 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.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only female member of the Legion of Doom.
  • The Speechless: She doesn't talk in her appearance.

    Weather Wizard 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/weather_wizard.png

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


  • Adaptational Wimp: This version hews closer to the pre-New 52 version in using technology to control the weather rather than having actual weather-controlling powers like his New 52 self.
  • 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. However...
  • Weather Manipulation: ...when the demon possessed him, the demon was able to control the weather despite the League having the wand.

    Toy Master 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toymaster_war_0001.jpg
Voiced By: Steve Blum

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


Others

     Vandal Savage 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maxresdefault_1_81.jpg
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 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zoomflashpoint_1.png

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


  • Adapted Out: Unlike all stories since it was introduced, Nora Allen's killer is never hinted to be Eobard in this universe.
  • 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. He comes out as the biggest threat after offing Vandal.
  • Body Horror: Has a large gaping hole in his forehead as a result of getting shot in the head in his second movie appearance. Also on a smaller level, his crimson colored irises set in black sclera.
  • Boom, Headshot!: Receives a bullet through the brain courtesy of Flashpoint!Batman. Even when he manages to somewhat survive this, the gaping hole is still there.
    • The Coup de Grâce that Deadshot gives him is another Headshot through the same hole.
  • 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.
  • Dirty Coward: Is perfectly fine with killing innocent bystanders and even letting the world be destroyed and condemning countless lives to their death just to settle his grudge against The Flash, yet when his own death is drawing near, he desperately seeks out the Get Out Of Hell Free card to escape punishment for his crimes.
  • 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: He can't stop himself from doing this, and it's what leads to his first death.
  • Famous Last Words: Fuck...my life.
  • Hannibal Lecture: Is very fond of giving these to Barry, and unfortunately they tend to work.
  • Karmic Death: He dies of a No Kill Like Overkill, being shot down by a ton of bullets from Deadshot in what looked to be a very painful death and drawn-out death. This was not long after he did a very similar approach by cutting Bronze Tiger roughly the same amount of 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.
  • 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: Again, his last words after Deadshot shot him were "Fuck my life."
  • 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: 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 The 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...which 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.
    • Done again in Hell to Pay when whenever he gets his hands on the card, he doesn't try to run or let himself die so he can go to Heaven. Instead he tries to goad Deadshot to kill him, giving Bronze Tiger time to throw a knife slicing his fingers off the card and leaving himself vulnerable. Justified here since not dying from the giant hole in his brain kind of impair his judgement, saying he is basically operating in a fog.
  • 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.

Voiced By: Cissy Jones

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 mortally 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.
  • Badass Gay: Just like Scandal.
  • Battle Couple: With 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: Her outfit choice, so much so she says it reminds her of Wonder Woman.
  • Dark Action Girl: She is superstrong and hits like a truck.
  • Evil Redhead: Has red hair and is an Apokoliptian currently in service to a immortal supervillain.
  • Lipstick Lesbian: Believe it or not, she is this in contrast to Scandal's Butch Lesbian. She 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.
