Ancient Men

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

Species: Humans

Played by: Francis Magee (king)

Appearances: Justice League

The humans who fought alongside Amazons, Atlanteans, Olympian gods and a Green Lantern against Steppenwolf's 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 Heroes: 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.
  • 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 against Steppenwolf.
  • Dismantled MacGuffin: They came to be in charge of one of the three Mother Boxes following Steppenwolf's 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.
  • 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.

    Ludlow 

Ludlow

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

Species: Human

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.


  • 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chrissy.png

Species: Human

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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jedeubanks.png
"It's Joe! Too bad, he did great work."

Species: Human

Played by: Tahmoh Penikett

Dubbed by: Patrick Bethune (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.

Appearances: Justice League

"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 father.


  • 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.

    Iris West 

Iris West

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iriswest_9.jpg

Species: Human

Played by: Kiersey Clemons

Appearances: Justice League (Deleted Role)

Barry Allen's girlfriend.


  • Damsel in Distress: Barry uses his speed to save her from a certain death in a car accident in a invokedDeleted Scene of Justice League.
  • Love Interest: Barry Allen's girlfriend.
  • Race Lift: A mild example. Iris was originally a Caucasian but she has since been rewritten as African-American in the Arrowverse's Flash TV series. Casting Kiersey Clemons is keeping in line with that current incarnation.

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

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.
  • Never Gets Drunk: While not immune to alcohol, his tolerance is so high he can drink his own superhuman son under the table.
    Thomas: Need a sippy cup for that?
  • 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.

Unspecified

    Dr. Shin 

Dr. Stephen Shin

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

Species: Human

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, a Greek goddess-Amazon 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.

    Mr. Sivana 

Mr. Sivana

Species: Human

Played by: John Glover

Dubbed by: Naoya Uchida (Japanese)

Appearances: SHAZAM!

The father of Thaddeus Sivana and head of Sivana Industries.


  • Abusive Parents: Judging by his words (literally treating his son like 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.
  • Casting Gag: John Glover playing the emotionally abusive billionaire father of a bald DC Comics supervillain. Sounds like Smallville's Lionel Luthor. Also doubling as Irony as She Is Cast, as when Glover made his DC debut as The Riddler, his supervillain character's first act of villainy was to target a belittling Corrupt Corporate Executive Asshole Victim in retaliation for mistreating him and eventually broke him into fear, now Glover here is in the reversal role as the belittling crooked businessman Asshole Victim who becomes a target of a supervillain he had mistreated in his first act of villainy and is reduced to a pleading Dirty Coward and unlike the Riddler's first victim who survived, Glover's character in the film doesn't. Also, upon getting confronted by the Seven Deadly Sins, Glover once again plays a CEO whose company gets invaded by otherworldly monsters and he himself gets attacked by one in a movie by Warner Bros.
  • 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 for the accident when it wasn't remotely the boy's fault.
  • 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.
  • 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, he thinks giving his son total control of the company will appease him and make him spare his life. To which Thaddeus answers that material wealth is nothing compared to real power and that it's just greed. Then Thaddeus appropriately lets Greed kill him.
  • 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 his son for "crying to others" when his son was a boy, but when his now-adult son shows up for revenge later, he allows himself to "cry to others" for help, the same thing he chastised his son for doing. 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.
  • 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 Sivana from calling for help and begging for mercy when Thaddeus exacts his revenge.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Thaddeus' Start of Darkness is partly due to the belittling and talking down his father subjected him to.

    Sid Sivana 

Sid Sivana

Species: Human

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.
  • 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.
  • 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 target of his rampage.
  • 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.

    C.C. Batson 

C.C. Batson

Species: Human

Appearances: SHAZAM! (mentioned)

Billy Batson's biological father.


  • Disappeared Dad: He served prison time, which is why Marilyn had to take care of Billy all by herself and found herself unable to do so, abandoning Billy in the process.
  • Named After Somebody Famous: He's named after C.C. Beck, the comic book artist who created Captain Marvel along with writer Bill Parker way back in the 1940s.

Russia

    Russian Family 

Russian Family

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

Species: Humans

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 Pisarnov, Russia. Steppenwolf chooses the city as his base of operation to start terraforming the Earth with the three Mother Boxes combined into the Unity.


  • Aliens in Cardiff: The city they inhabit in the middle of Russia doesn't seem particularly big or well connected to the rest of the world, and they witness Steppenwolf and his Parademons invading it for that reason.
  • 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: They are endangered by the presence of Steppenwolf's Parademons and the Unity's terraforming. The Flash comes to their rescue and evacuates 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.
