Click for Civilian Look 

Sportsmaster (real name Lawrence "Crusher" Crock) is a supervillain, a member of the League of Assassins, and is a disciple for the Light. He is the father of Artemis and stepfather of Cheshire, and husband of Paula Crock.

  • Action Dad: An evil version — Sportsmaster is a highly trained martial artist with the ability to use a variety of weapons.
  • Adaptational Nationality: In the comics he was American, but here he was born in Canada.
  • Archnemesis Dad:
    • To Artemis Crock/Speedy II/Tigress, she works for the good guys while he's employed to the league and the Light. Needless to say, they come to blows often.

  • Battle Couple: With his wife Paula Nguyen.

  • Parental Favoritism: According to Artemis, Crusher was a better father to Jade than he was to Artemis. And yet, Jade has a more volatile relationship with him. This is probably due to Jade finding out Crusher was not her real father and feeling as though he had betrayed her by lying to her for so long. Artemis only hates him because he's a murderer and evil to his core.
  • Related Differently in the Adaptation: Unlike in Young Justice where he was her biological father, here he's merely Jade's stepfather, although their relationship is essentially the same.

Click for Civilian Look 

A flamboyant top enforcer for the league. He's an emotionless, unfeeling killer that has a tendency to eat his victim's faces after he's murdered them.

  • Real Men Wear Pink: The color pink calms him down, and he's a dangerous, cannibalistic serial killer.
  • Red Baron: Eater of Faces.
  • Serial Killer: A very prolific assassin. He would have killed Ron Troupe and an innocent shop owner had it not been for Those Meddling Kids.
  • Sissy Villain: He wears lots of pink and tends to strike flamboyant poses.

  • The Dragon: Serves as this for Malcolm Merlyn.

  • The Mentally Ill: His mother was mentally ill, and that passed onto him, making him rather unstable and prone to lashing out. Being able to remember a re-written timeline can do that to your psyche.
