Ancient Men

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jlancientmen.jpg

Species: Humans

Affiliation(s): First alliance against Apokolips

Played by: Francis Magee (king) | Ray Porter (blacksmith)

Appearances: Justice League | Zack Snyder's Justice League

The humans who fought alongside Amazons, Atlanteans, Olympian gods and a Green Lantern against the Apokoliptian invasion of Earth in ancient times.


  • Badass Normal: They had no powers or Super Strength unlike their allies, just iron age weapons and courage, and they faced a terrifying alien invasion.
  • Barbarian Hero: They are depicted with a barbarian vibe (wearing furs, sporting beards and longhair, living in tribes, burying artifacts in the forest) and they were courageous enough to face the armies of Apokolips.
  • The Cameo: One of the blacksmiths who built the metal casing of the humans' Mother Box was played by Ray Porter, the actor who did the voice and motion capture of Darkseid.
  • Cool Crown: Their king wore a crown with lonk spikes going upwards, not unlike the upper part of Sauron's helmet.
  • Cool Helmet: Several of them wore horned helmets.
  • Demon of Human Origin: Some of them were turned into Parademons in the battle in the theatrical version of Justice League.
  • Dismantled MacGuffin: They came to be in charge of one of the three Mother Boxes following Steppenwolf (theatrical) / Darkseid's (Zack Snyder's Justice League) first defeat on Earth. They had to bury it, since humans are easily corruptible and easily divided.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Some of them fight without helmets.
  • Humans Are Flawed: Unlike Amazons and Atlanteans, humans tend to be selfish, divided and prone to fight each other. Thus, they buried their Mother Box in a secret location so no tribe would be tempted to use it against the others, while the Amazons and Atlanteans were trustworthy enough to keep their respective Mother Boxes in sealed strongholds.
  • Multinational Team: While the group that inherits a Mother Box is clearly European, plenty of other ethnicities can be seen waging war with Darkseid's army including East Asians, Africans and Middle-Easterners in Zack Snyder's Justice League.
  • Pelts of the Barbarian: Some of them wore furs.
  • Precursor Heroes: The alliance of humans, Amazons, Atlanteans, Olympians and a Green Lantern that defeated Steppenwolf are described by Diana as part of an "age of heroes", they represent the Justice League's predecessors in more than one way.
  • The Time of Myths: They don't belong to a specific (and accurate) historical era. They're mostly general composites of the most distinct races.

    Ludlow 

Ludlow

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ludlow.jpg
"Hey asshole, don't forget your tip!"

Species: Human

Citizenship: Canadian

Played by: Ian Tracey

Dubbed by:

Appearances: Man of Steel

"I think I'll probably just leave when I'm good and ready."

A roughneck truck driver and customer at the Cassidy Pub in Canada, in which Clark Kent briefly worked as a waiter.


  • Asshole Victim: Clark's creative reprisal for his bullying and harassment, while not physical, likely cost the trucker his property and livelihood, as insurance probably wouldn't cover such bizarre, inexplicable circumstances. And given his poor people skills and obviously low intellect, Ludlow will likely have to rely upon the mercies of public assistance for some time before he finds some menial, low-paying service job (if ever). And he fully deserves this fate.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Clark very politely asked him to leave, but he made it clear he wasn't going anywhere. Cut to the very next scene, and he can't go anywhere.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Ludlow viciously provokes Clark, first by splashing his beer on him, then by trying to push him violently — to no effect of course — then throws a beer can in his back and insults him. Luckily for him, Clark is fundamentally a Nice Guy who would never abuse of his powers on human beings, has Nerves of Steel all along and doesn't do anything other than facing him. Clark then ventilates his anger on Ludlow's truck.
  • Hate Sink: Everything about this guy is meant to make you laugh at his eventual comeuppance. He sexually harasses a waitress, tries to pick a fight with Clark, then gloats when Clark holds back. He also works for a logging company in a film which has some environmental undertones.
  • He-Man Woman Hater: As implied by his harassment of Chrissy.
  • Jerkass: A very unsavory character, to say the least.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: When he leaves the bar, he finds his truck destroyed and impaled on the wood logs he was transporting, courtesy of a very angry Clark.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Even if he didn't know about Clark's powers, picking a fight with a guy who is considerably taller and more muscular than him and also was unfazed by a shove doesn't reflect highly on Ludlow's intellect.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: Even after Clark backs down, Ludlow keeps taunting him. He even goes as far as to throw an empty beer can in the back of Clark's head.

    Chrissy 

Chrissy

Species: Human

Citizenship: Canadian

Affiliation(s): Cassidy Pub

Played by: Carmen Lavigne

Dubbed by: Alondra Hidalgo (Latin-American Spanish)

Appearances: Man of Steel

"It's not worth it, Sweetie..."

A waitress at the Cassidy Pub in Canada, in which Clark Kent briefly worked as a waiter.


  • Affectionate Nickname: She nicknames Clark "Sweetie".
  • Damsel in Distress: Ludlow indecently tries to grope her at the Pub, prompting Clark to intervene.
  • Nice Girl: She's the kind to avoid conflict, as seen when she tries to convince Clark not to insist when he wants to reason Ludlow, telling him it's not worth it. Judging from the smile on her face and Lois' narration, she remembers Clark with fondness.
  • When She Smiles: When Lois Lane comes at her seeking witnesses who saw Clark, Chrissy has a big smile on her face as she talks about him like he's some kind of "guardian angel", since he saved her from Ludlow's harassment.

    Jed Eubanks 

Jed Eubanks

"It's Joe! Too bad, he did great work."

Species: Human

Citizenship: Canadian

Affiliation(s): Arctic Cargo

Played by: Tahmoh Penikett

Dubbed by: Patrick Béthune (European French), Arturo Cataño (Latin-American Spanish)

Appearances: Man of Steel

"Miss Lane, how are you doing? Jed Eubanks, Arctic Cargo."

A manager of the Arctic Cargo company. He welcomes Lois Lane off of a chopper at the US military camp site on Ellesmere Island where they were following an Alien signal that led them to the Kryptonian ship. He had a new employee, Joe (Clark Kent's alias) carry her heavy bags, and introduced her to Colonel Hardy. Lois later came back at him to seek informations about "Joe".


  • Benevolent Boss: He seemed somewhat saddened by Joe's departure, referring to the latter as a being very good at his job.
  • Flat Character: He is Clark's former boss, welcomes Lois to the US military camp in Canada and Lois later comes back at him since he worked with Clark. That's all there is to him.

  • Demonic Possession: Enchantress attacks him in a restroom, bashing his head against a mirror. Then she opens the vial containing her brother's spirit form, who then flows into Gerard through his mouth.
  • Fainting: Happens to him in the middle of a subway station once Incubus possesses his body. A police agent and a physician immediately try to help him, only to be impaled or grabbed by Incubus' tentacles and merged within him, along with a construction worker who was filming the scene with his phone instead of running for dear life.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: His eyes start glowing as Incubus possesses his body.
  • Innocent Bystander: One innocent victim of Enchantress' and Incubus' rampage among many others.
  • Orifice Invasion: The spirit form of Incubus flows into Gerard through his mouth.
  • Scary Black Man: Not at first, but once Incubus possesses him he takes a level in creepiness.

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Billy Crudup (Justice League, both versions) | Ron Livingston (The Flash)

Dubbed by: Fabrice Josso (European French) | Daniel Picard (Canadian French) | Arturo Mercado Jr. (Latin-American Spanish)

Appearances: Justice League | Zack Snyder's Justice League | The Flash

"I want you to give all that up, and I want you to stop coming to see me. I am a drag on your life."

Barry Allen's imprisoned father.


  • Casting Gag: A lab accident granted Barry Allen the power to transcend space and see through time, so of course his dad would be played by Dr Manhattan.
  • Don't Look Back: He urges Barry not to come back at the parlor since he considers himself as a burden to his son's life, but Barry doesn't listen and keeps visiting him.
  • Good Parents: There's a reason Barry visits him in jail, and the both of them have a Window Love moment.
  • Mistaken for Murderer: He has been accused of the murder of his wife Nora, Barry's mother.
  • Nice Guy: Despite the awful situation he's trapped in, Henry is still a kind and good-natured person who loves his son and wants to see him happy, even if it means being left alone.
  • The Scapegoat: Whoevernote  killed Nora managed to point all the blame on Henry perfectly.
  • Skunk Stripe: The right side of his temple is graying.
  • Two First Names: Per a DC Comics habit. Allen is traditionally a male given name.
  • Window Love: He shares such a moment with his son in his prison's parlor in Justice League, putting his hand on the window with Barry doing the same.

    Nora Allen 

Nora Allen

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Kiersey Clemons

Appearances: Zack Snyder's Justice League | The Flash

A young woman Barry Allen saves the life of one day. She's bound to become his girlfriend.


  • Damsel in Distress: Barry uses his speed to save her from a certain death in a car accident.
  • Head-Turning Beauty: She gets Barry's attention within a second of meeting him. Barry is so smitten with her he fails to notice a car exploding in the distance. It's through sheer luck that nobody got hurt.
  • Love Interest: Barry Allen's girlfriend.
  • Race Lift: A mild example. Iris was originally a ginger Caucasian in the comics but she was made African-American in the Arrowverse's Flash TV series. Casting Kiersey Clemons is keeping in line with this specific incarnation.
  • She's Got Legs: Iris wears a short skirt which contrasts with her long coat.
  • Shiksa Goddess: She is the black girlfriend of the Jewish Barry Allen.

    Dog Daycare Owner 

Dog Daycare Owner

Played by: Lucy Briers

Appearances: Zack Snyder's Justice League

Amnesty Bay

    Thomas Curry 

Thomas "Tom" Curry

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/thomascurry.jpg
"Your mother always knew you are special."

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Temuera Morrison

Dubbed by: Bruno Dubernat (European French), Manuel Tadros (Canadian French)

Appearances: Aquaman

A lighthouse keeper who became the human lover of the Atlantean queen Atlanna, and the father of Arthur Curry/Aquaman.


  • Florence Nightingale Effect: He healed Atlanna's wounds, and the two fell in love.
  • Good Parent: He raised his son as a loving father, and, most importantly, never spoke ill of Atlanna to him after she was forced to abandon them for their safety.
  • Hidden Depths: A humble lighthouse keeper, who has an extensive knowledge of classical history which he carried on to his son (and maybe even a few languages).
  • Interspecies Romance: He had a relationship with Atlanna, the Atlantean queen whose species evolved to adapt to underwater life. Arthur was born of it.
  • I Will Wait for You: He goes to the end of his pier every day at sunrise because Atlanna promised she would eventually come back to that place at that time. He does this for decades. His patience eventually pays off when Orm is defeated and Arthur becomes king of Atlantis, allowing Atlanna to come back to him safely.
  • Lighthouse Point: He's a lighthouse keeper.
  • Never Gets Drunk: While not immune to alcohol, his tolerance is so high he can drink his own superhuman son under the table.
    Thomas: Want me to have them put that in a sippy cup for you?
  • One Steve Limit: He shares his first name with Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne/Batman's late father.
  • Race Lift: Like Aquaman, he was originally a Caucasian in the comics and the actor playing him in the DCEU has Pacific islander ancestry. During a chat with Arthur, he mentions his own dad and the haka, so he's at least partially Polynesian. Which would make Arthur the world's first Polynesian-Atlantean.
  • Rescue Romance: He found an inanimate Atlanna on the reefs by his lighthouse and took her into his lighthouse to patch her injuries and offer tea. The two of them then fell in love.
  • Rich Suitor, Poor Suitor: The poor suitor (lighthouse keeper) to Orvax's (King of Atlantis) rich suitor. Atlanna preferred Thomas because he's a sweetheart and Orvax was a jerk who forced the issue at gunpoint.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In the comics, Thomas was accidentally killed by Black Manta when Arthur was a young adult. Here, he survives to be reunited with Atlanna, though The Stinger hints that he may not be long for this world, as in the comics Shin and Manta's team-up was what ended in his death.

Sivana Industries

    Mr. Sivana 

Mr. Sivana

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mrsivana.jpg

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Affiliation(s): Sivana Industries

Played by: John Glover

Dubbed by: Naoya Uchida (Japanese), Gabriel Le Doze (European French), Manuel Tadros (Canadian French)

Appearances: SHAZAM!

The father of Thaddeus Sivana and head of Sivana Industries.


  • Abusive Parents: Judging by his words (literally calling his son a "little shit") right before the accident and what his son has become, he hasn't been a good father. Worse, he does nothing to stop his older son from abusing the younger, even laughing when the older brother hits the younger one.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: He spends his final moments pleading for his youngest son not to kill him, even trying to bribe him with not only money but his company as well in exchange for his life. It doesn't work.
  • Asshole Victim:
    • Considering how poorly he treated his youngest son, it's hard to feel sorry for him when Thaddeus has him at his mercy.
    • When he's struck by a car in the prologue, a cheerful Christmas carol plays over it. This was immediately after demonstrating his superb parenting skills, so the audience is clearly meant to get a laugh out of it.
  • Casting Gag:
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Downplayed. He's a ruthlessly self-centered Jerkass in charge of a billion dollar company. However, it's unknown if he did anything illegal while running said company, but he was a genuine jackass to his youngest son.
  • Create Your Own Villain: He, along with the Seven Deadly Sins, is responsible for making Thad descend into villainy.
  • Dirty Coward: He resorts to pathetically groveling to his son that he abused, which makes him hypocritical due to having chastised him for groveling himself before.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Belittling and insulting his younger son Thaddeus moments before the car accident — and then afterward blaming Thaddeus entirely for the accident when there was blame enough to go around.
  • Evil Cripple: Downplayed. He's a Corrupt Corporate Executive who's also an Abusive Parent, and the car crash at the beginning of the film left him paralyzed from the waist down. However, while he's a definite jerkass, calling him "evil" is a bit of a stretch.
  • Fantasy-Forbidding Father: He vehemently shuts down and belittles Thaddeus when he tries to explain his experience in the Rock of Eternity.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Sure, while Seven Deadly Sins share this role to Thaddeus to help them, but he and Sid were the ones whose abuse planted Thaddeus' insecurities that the Sins used to get him to free them, making them the Greater Scope Villains to the Greater Scope Villains.
  • Hate Sink: He exists in the film to be purely despicable, the reason behind Sivana’s descent to villainy, and become his unfavorite son's cathartic target of his rampage.
  • Hypocrite: He's been a pretty bad father, and his company's marketing puts emphasis on family. Also, he chided Thad for crying for help. When Thad unleashes the Seven Deadly Sins upon his father, Thad uses his father's own words about crying for help against him.
  • Karmic Death: Dies at the hands of the unfavorite son he abused and belittled for ages. And Greed is the one ordered to kill him.
  • Money Is Not Power: After seeing his son unleash the Seven Deadly Sins on the board of Sivana Industries, Mr. Sivana thinks he can appease his son by giving him total control of the company. Thaddeus responds that material wealth is nothing compared to real power and that it's just a manifestation of the old man's greed. Then Thaddeus appropriately lets Greed kill him.
    Dr. Sivana: What sin best befits you, father?
    Mr. Sivana: I'll give you anything. Money. The company? You want the company?
    Dr. Sivana: There it is: greed. Do you honestly think all this... material you've accumulated amounts to actual power?
  • Parental Favoritism: He's clearly playing favorites with his sons: he allows Sid to bully Thaddeus with impunity and yells at Thaddeus for wanting help; later in life, he gives Sid a high-ranking position at his corporation and doesn't allow Thaddeus to have any involvement at all (his panic-stricken offer to give Thaddeus the company in exchange for sparing his life notwithstanding.)
  • Parental Hypocrisy: He chastised Thaddeus for "crying to others" when the boy was being bullied by his older brother, but when his now-adult son shows up to exact his revenge later, the old man allows himself to cry for help and plead for mercy. This doesn't escape Thaddeus' notice, as he throws his father's words back in his face before killing him.
  • Patricide: On the receiving end of one when Thaddeus unleashes one of the Seven Deadly Sins (Greed, specifically) on him after having them kill the rest of the board of Sivana Industries.
  • Slimeball: He's a slimy Corrupt Corporate Executive who pride himself for elitist beliefs, while looking down at his nose towards Thaddeus.
  • The Social Darwinist: It's clear that he despises any form of perceived weakness; when the meek, bookish Thaddeus is being bullied by the stronger older brother Sid, Daddy Sivana not only does nothing to stop it, but he chastises the younger brother for asking for help instead of standing up for himself. This doesn't stop Mr. Sivana from calling for help and begging for mercy when Thaddeus exacts his revenge.
  • Unnamed Parent: His forename is never specified.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Thaddeus' Start of Darkness is partly due to the belittling and talking down his father subjected him to.
  • Upper-Class Twit: He and his eldest son Sid are rich and snobby elitist jackasses who belittled Thaddeus in his youth.

    Sid Sivana 

Sid Sivana

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sidsivana.jpg

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Affiliation(s): Sivana Industries

Played by: Wayne Ward (adult), Landon Doak (younger)

Dubbed by:

Appearances: SHAZAM!

The older brother of Thaddeus Sivana.


  • Alliterative Name: Sid Sivana.
  • Asshole Victim: It's safe to say he hasn't treated his brother well, and the latter ends up killing him.
  • Big Brother Bully: He's introduced relentlessly bullying his younger brother Thaddeus.
  • Cain and Abel: Thaddeus' hatred for him culminates with murder.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Downplayed. He's a ruthlessly self-centered Jerkass like his father with a high-ranking position in a billion dollar company. However, it's unknown if he did anything illegal while running said company, but he was a genuine jackass to his little brother.
  • Destination Defenestration: He's on the brutal receiving end of this by Thaddeus, who crashes into a Sivana Industries board meeting, grabs him and throws him through a window. That meeting takes place on a very high floor of the Sivana Industries skyscraper.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Taking away his younger brother's Magic 8-Ball, hitting said brother when he tries to get it back, and then using said toy to make fun of his brother.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Sure, while Seven Deadly Sins share this role to Thaddeus to help them, but he and their father were the ones whose abuse planted Thaddeus' insecurities that the Sins used to get him to free them, making them the Greater Scope Villains to the Greater Scope Villains.
  • Hate Sink: He exists in the film to be purely despicable, the reason behind Sivana's descent to villainy, and become his little brother's cathartic rampage target.
  • Karmic Death: Murdered by the little brother he bullied and belittled for his whole life.
  • Nepotism: Considering how much he benefits from Parental Favoritism, it's safe to assume that the high-ranking position Sid has in his father's company isn't just a coincidence.
  • Slimeball: He's a slimy Corrupt Corporate Executive who pride himself as his father's number one son to become a board member and to continue to look down at his nose towards his little brother.
  • Upper-Class Twit: He and his father are rich and snobby elitist jackasses who belittles Thaddeus.

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Affiliation(s): Sivana Industries

Played by: Lotta Losten

Dubbed by:

Appearances: SHAZAM!

A scientist who researches on the strange "hallucinations" dozens of people have had. All of those people were actually children who were summoned at the Rock of Eternity and failed the test of the Wizard Shazam. Thaddeus Sivana has spent years looking for a way to return to the Rock of Eternity, and funds Lynn's research to that end.


  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Upon touching the door with the symbols of the Seven Deadly Sins, she horrifically dissolves into ashes right before Sivana's eyes.
  • The Shrink: She seems to be a psychiatrist.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: She dies minutes after appearing onscreen.

Washington DC

    Simon Stagg 

Simon Stagg

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Oliver Cotton

Appearances: Wonder Woman 1984

Maxwell Lord's disgruntled partner.


  • Adaptational Heroism: In the comics, Simon Stagg varys between a Greedy Jerk with a Heart of Gold and a straight up Jerkass who's involved in a number of ethically dubious actions. Here he simply wants the money he invested back from Lord's failing company.
  • Age Lift: This version of Stagg is already elderly in 1984, whereas in the comics, he's usually this age during the current time period.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Chewing out Max in front of his son was hardly nice, but he's entirely justified in calling him out for failing to live up to his promises.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: After getting presumably arrested thanks to Lord, he never appears again in the film.

    Alistair Lord 

Alistair Lord

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Lucian Perez

Appearances: Wonder Woman 1984

Maxwell Lord's son.


  • Children Are Innocent: When he finds out that his father can grant wishes, he uses his to wish for his father's happiness. Maxwell chooses to ignore this one out of guilt.
  • Morality Pet: Maxwell's only redeeming quality is his devotion to his son.
  • Nice Guy: Alistair thinks only of his father's well-being.
  • Satellite Character: He only exists to keep Maxwell Lord from being an unrepentant monster.
  • Twofer Token Minority: Asian and Hispanic. We never see his mother, but his facial features suggest that he's biracial, and Lucian Perez is this exact mix in real life.

    Raquel 

Raquel

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Gabriella Wilde

Appearances: Wonder Woman 1984

Maxwell Lord's assistant.


  • Beleaguered Assistant: She's overworked due to being the only employee Maxwell can afford to hire on a long-term basis.
  • Sexy Secretary: She functions as a hybrid of secretary and receptionist until Maxwell can afford more staff. She's also quite attractive.

    Babajide 

Babajide

Species: Human

Played by: Ravi Patel

    "Handsome Man" 

Handsome Man

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Kristoffer Polaha

Appearances: Wonder Woman 1984

An unnamed man living in Washington D.C.


  • Badass Bystander: He's just a regular unassuming guy with a good build. But he becomes this when his body is taken by Steve Trevor. Though it's unclear he was already a badass himself prior, or if that came from Steve.
  • Cosmic Plaything: To a ludicrous degree. His body is taken by Steve Trevor, gets dragged from D.C. to Cairo, and nearly loses his life in the ensuing chaos.
  • Double Standard: Rape, Divine on Mortal: After his body is taken over by Steve, Diana has sex with his body.
  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: A downplayed example, as the man himself is not threatening. He only looks like Steve because of the Dreamstone. Everyone but Diana sees him as his real self.
  • The Generic Guy: He has basically no traits to go off of beyond being a Nice Guy, and really only exists to give Steve Trevor a body.
  • Grand Theft Me: When Diana wishes for Steve to come back, his spirit takes over the body of the man.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: He has no memories of what happened while Steve took over his body.
  • Nice Guy: He's very friendly to Diana at the end of the movie.

Species: Human

Citizenship: American

Played by: Randall Park

Dubbed by: Jérémy Bardeau (European French), Gabriel Lessard (Canadian French)

Appearances: Aquaman

A scientist who discovered the existence of Atlantis, but has a hard time being believed about it.


  • Cassandra Truth: He is entirely right about Atlantis, but nobody in the human world believes him, despite the Earth having gone though many extraordinary things like two alien invasions, evil dimensional entities devastating a city, the rise of metahumans, an Amazon-demigoddess revealing herself to the world and even the existence of Aquaman himself being public knowledge.
  • Demoted to Extra: His role in Arthur's childhood and his becoming a superhero is removed.
  • Driven to Villainy: He starts off as simply a curious scientist who dedicates his life to study Atlantis and prove it exists. He gets ridiculed, and ends up allying himself with Black Manta.
  • Ignored Expert: Nobody believes him when he points out it's Atlanteans who caused tsunamis and threw trash from the oceans on beaches.

C.C. Batson

Species: Human

"Damn, I hate that you kiss so good. You gotta go, Digger. My Dad'll kill you if he finds you here."

A former girlfriend of Digger Harkness/Captain Boomerang.


  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Prevalent in her teen years. Mal admits that Digger is a bad influence on her, but finds herself attracted to his raw animal magnetism.
  • Dating What Daddy Hates: Mal's father was a police sergeant, so he naturally had strong reservations about her dating an unrepentant scoundrel.
  • Fair Cop: She maintains her good looks even after joining the police force.
  • Love Cannot Overcome: Mallory would eventually join the police force, putting her at odds with Digger. He admitted it was probably best they broke things off when they did, though he still tries to shift some of them blame onto Mal and her father for not accepting him.

    Stanley Ryan 

Stanley Ryan

Species: Human

Citizenship: Australian

Affiliation: Perth's Australian Air Wing

Appearances: Secret Files of the Suicide Squad

Father of Mallory Ryan and sergeant of the police air wing.

  • Overprotective Dad: He kept a close eye on Mal knowing full well that the local delinquent Digger Harkness was keen on her.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: He appears only once during Digger and Mal's teen years. It's mentioned that he later died offscreen in the line of duty, due to his helicopter tail being wrecked by a well-aimed boomerang.

Iceland

    Mayor 

The Mayor

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mayor_22.jpg
"We are poor, not stupid. GET. OUT!"

Species: Human

Citizenship: Icelandic

Played by: Ingvar Eggert Sigurðsson

Appearances: Justice League | Zack Snyder's Justice League

The mayor/chief of the Icelandic village Bruce Wayne comes to in an attempt to recruit Aquaman in the Justice League.


  • Eloquent in My Native Tongue: He is more at ease when talking in Icelandic than in English, which makes sense considering how isolated the village is.
  • Get Out!: Says this to Bruce Wayne himself, no less.
  • No Name Given: His name is unknown.
  • Punctuated! For! Emphasis!: In Zack Snyder's Justice League, he feels offended by Bruce Wayne, thinking he's talking to him and the other villagers like if they were "children" by offering $25,000 for any useful information about the Aquaman's whereabouts, and shouts "GET. OUT!". It turns out Wayne was being serious and brought that cash with him.
  • Secret Keeper: He and the other villagers mock Bruce for being in search of a "magical man from the sea", but they actually do so in order to protect Arthur/Aquaman's secret, not knowing what Bruce really is up to. Arthur has been openly helping them for quite some time by this point.

    Village Woman 

Village Woman

Species: Human

Citizenship: Icelandic

Played by: Salóme Gunnarsdóttir

Appearances: Zack Snyder's Justice League

A young woman who leads the village in a farewell song for Arthur Curry/Aquaman after he saves them from starvation.


  • Bilingual Bonus: Her song is actually a love declaration, implying there may have been some kind of relationship between her and Arthur.
  • Creepy Shadowed Undereyes: Her eyes are noticeably dark compared to her blonde hair and white skin. The result makes her look ghost-like.
  • Perverted Sniffing: She inhales Arthur's clothes in full view of Bruce Wayne and the other villagers.

Russia

    Russian Family 

Russian Family

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jlrussianfamily.jpeg

Species: Humans

Citizenship: Russians

Played by: Tomi May (father), Kasha Bajor (mother), Molly Shenker (daughter), Yoni Roodner (Yuri, the son)

Appearances: Justice League

A family living near a power plant in the city of Pozharnov, Russia. Steppenwolf chooses the city as his base of operation to start terraforming the Earth with the three Mother Boxes combined into the Unity.


  • Adapted Out: They are left out of Zack Snyder's version of Justice League due to not being part of what he originally shot (they were a Joss Whedon addition). Pozharnov reverts back to a Ghost Town where a Chernobyl / Kyshtym-like nuclear accident happened and where no one in his right mind would want to live.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: When they are hiding from the swarm of Parademons, the father gets a shotgun, the boy gets a crowbar and the little daughter... gets bug spray.
  • Innocent Bystanders: Their sole purpose in the film is to be endangered by the presence of Steppenwolf's Parademons and the Unity's terraforming, with the Flash coming to their rescue and evacuating them in the climax, by pushing their pickup truck at high speed, along with Superman evacuating other people by carrying a whole building away.
  • No Name Given: Their surname is never mentioned, and we only know the son's forename (Yuri).
  • Screaming Woman: The mother screams when they have to evacuate their home as the crystal tentacles of the Unity start their Hostile Terraforming.

Bialya

    Emir Said Bin Abydos 

Emir Said Bin Abydos

Species: Human

Citizenship: Bialya

Played by: Amr Waked

Appearance: Wonder Woman 1984

An oil Baron and heir to the kingdom of Bialya.


  • Arab Oil Sheikh: A very blatant example of one. He lives in a desert, wears trditional Middle-Eastern attire and is defined solely by the wealth he gained from crude oil.
  • Bullying a Dragon: When Maxwell grants his wish to have full sovreignity over his nation in return for his oil reserves, Emir laughs in his face as he'd already sold his reserves. Maxwell then takes his security guards as payment, leaving Said exposed to any uprisings or coups.
