Royal Flush Gang

    In General 
  • Composite Character: This team is mixed with members of the Runaways from Young Justice, who are teenage and less stereotypical versions based on the original characters of Superfriends (with the exception of Virgil Hawkins/Static, who was a stand-in for Black Vulcan) with the DCAU version of Royal Flush Gang (with Colin Wilkes being an orignal addition in this story).
  • Heel–Face Turn: Originally the Royal Flush Gang were bad. Now they're just out to keep themselves safe. They're basically a superpowered team of misfit teenagers. They break a few minor laws (like theft and vandalism) in the course of survival and having fun, but they also are not ones to stand by and let a bad guy kill innocent people... but if another hero is engaged in a fight, they're also not likely to lend a hand (well... some of them will, like Colin or Tye, but Eddie, Asami, and Ace are less interested in doing good and more about keeping to themselves).

Ace is a child with psychic powers. She was taken by Cadmus, along with other gifted children, to become weapons for justice until she was taken in by the Joker and recruited into the Royal Flush Gang.

  • Blessed with Suck: Her psychic abilities would make her one of the most powerful metahumans in the DC Universe. It also prevented her from ever having a normal life.
  • Break the Cutie: The traumatic training she endured at the hands of Cadmus did a number on her psyche. It's not a wonder her past with the organization is troublesome and personal to her.
  • Broken Ace: No pun intended. Her powers were introduced to her after she accidentally put her parents in a catatonic state and then she was robbed of her childhood because Cadmus wanted her to be a weapon for good.
  • Child Soldier: Ace was taken in and trained by C.A.D.M.U.S since she was a toddler to be used a Human Weapon.
  • Cool Big Sis: She treats the rest of the Royal Flush Gang like younger siblings, acting also as a Parental Substitute since she's the oldest in the group.
  • Dark Magical Girl: She is a powerful psychic who gives powers to criminals in the hopes that they will play with her.
  • Human Weapon: She was treated as such by Cadmus, which was a great deal of angst and resentment for her. Whatever the case, the girl was not disposed of and instead underwent a number of chemical treatments and surgical operations in an effort to not only make her powers more controllable, but to also harness her abilities into a weapon.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: Her power was originally limited to those with whom she made eye-contact, even by proxy such as a television broadcast.
  • Mind Rape: She has the ability to warp the perceptions of others (often leaving them catatonic, mentally unstable or psychologically damaged).
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: She was never given a name by Cadmus, and her birth name became lost along with her entire hometown.
  • Power Glows: When using her powers, her eyes glow golden.
  • Psychic Children: A crazy-powerful telepath and psychic who happens to be a teenage girl.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: Ace survives in the E27 version of the events of "Epilogue" and forms a heroic Royal Flush Gang.
  • Tranquil Fury: Even when she becomes enraged, she only frowns more while keeping a calm tone.

    King (Tye Longshadow)
Click for Civilian Look 

An Apache boy and Jaime Reyes' friend who was raised by his adopted grandfather after his parents seemly abandoned him. After his meta gene is activated, he gains the power to project ectoplasmic energy, usually taking the shape of a large featureless human or massive animal-like shapes.

  • Berserk Button: He's Apache, so you better don't confuse him with any other type of Native American.
  • Dream Walker: Tye has what his grandfather refers to as a "sixth sense," allowing him to sense things that cannot be sensed by the normal five senses. This psychic awareness also infers knowledge upon him while he sleeps, taking the form of his deceased grandfather apparently.
  • Famous Ancestor: His ancestor Inukchuk was the adoptive father of Jonah Hex back in the Wild West.
  • Glass Cannon: On the one hand, his astral projection power gives him Super Strength. On the other hand, he shares any pain the projection would, which makes it a lot easier to disable him than one would think. Anything that can get through the projection can also potentially hit him, making him extremely vulnerable since he's a standard human otherwise.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In spite of his cynical and angry nature, Tye is a caring and loyal friend.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He has long hair and delicate features.
  • Official Couple: He's dating Asami Koizumi.
  • Perpetual Frowner: About 99% of the time Tye wears a scowl on his face.
  • Psychic Block Defense: Like all psychics, Tye is vulnerable to certain psychic frequencies which can be traumatic to experience. Likewise, if he exerts himself too much, he may suffer from migraines, nosebleeds, or cerebral hemorrhaging.
  • Sizeshifter: By speaking the words "Inukchuk," Tye surrounds his body with ectoplasmic energy, usually taking the shape of a large featureless human or massive animal-like shapes. While this power is active, Tye's body is shielded inside the giant form in a state of stasis, with his senses experiencing the form's perspective. Some of his favorite forms have been a bear (for power), a wolf (for speed), and an eagle (for flight); but more often than not, he takes the form of a giant man for utility.
  • Synchronization: Harming his avatar causes him pain.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's one the tallest of the Royal Flush Gang, has long, black hair, and is considered very handsome by his female fan base out-of-universe.

    Queen (Asami Koizumi)
Click for Civilian Look 

A Japanese girl who gains chi manipulation powers after her metagene is activated. She can't speak English (and at best a limited understanding when it's spoken to her), so doesn't say much.

  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her only power thus far is being able to launch herself with her chi powers. She makes the best of it.
  • Ki Manipulation: Asami is able to gather and channel the flow of her inner energy (chi, ki, or chakra), which covers her in a glowing aura. She can then project it outward to break through solid rock, to leap at a superhuman level and to soften landings, and the glowing aura also provides her some protection from rough landings and impacts.
  • Lady Swears-a-Lot: Turns out she can curse like a sailor when not pretending to not speak english.
  • Mismatched Eyes: Her right eye is green and her left eye is brown.
  • Official Couple: She's dating Tye Longshadow.
  • Sole Survivor: Of the car accident that killed her family.

    Jack (Eduardo Dorado Jr.)
Click for Civilian Look 

An Argentinian who gains the power of teleportation after his metagene is activated. After Eddie decided to escape with the others on Cadmus when Joker afforded him the opportunity.

  • Brainy Brunette: The resident Smart Guy and has black hair.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's well known for giving a lot of quips.
  • Fingerless Gloves: He wears a black pair of fingerless gloves.
  • Gratuitous Spanish: Being from Argentina, he occasionally adds Spanish to his sentences.
  • Messy Hair: Uncombed and spiky, black hair.
  • Teleportation: At first it was only himself but ultimately becomes capable of taking others. Eduardo developed the ability to instantly teleport himself effortlessly, to any location within his sightline. Under normal circumstances he is limited to only teleporting himself.
  • Teleport Spam: Uses it often, and combines it with Beam Spam after being subjected to raw Zeta Beam radiation that Eddie’s power was jumpstarted and his own body began creating that energy, enabling him to teleport within his line of sight.

    Ten (Colin Wilkes)
Click for Civilian Look 

A protector of abused children. Colin was abandoned by his parents after they sold him to Cadmus and he was subject of countless tests and exposed to stressful experiments in an attempt to find a way to trigger his meta-gene in a manner which could be replicated. When the Joker broke into the Cadmus facility and freed the five test subjects, Colin was the most skeptical about trusting the Joker, but he went along with it to stay with his friends.

  • Adaptation Name Change: From Abuse to Ten from the Royal Flush Gang.
  • The Big Guy: His strength and size obviously make him this.
  • Healing Factor: Can heal from most injuries, and uses a bandaid because it makes him look cool.
  • Hulking Out: Turns into a muscular hulk, albeit it doesn't require any Unstoppable Rage and he's still in full control.
  • Parental Abandonment: His parents actually sold him to Cadmus labs.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: Because of his growth, his outfit doesn't come with sleeves.
  • Super Strength: As Ten, seemingly about to the same levels of Bane when he used Venom, but he's actually not too strong on par with Bane due to his inexperience with the Venom. He is ultimately capable of exceeding his limit, though not without temporarily losing control over himself.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Colin suffers from chiroptophobia, which is a fear of bats. Since he winds up fighting (then working with) Batman, this is especially ironic.


Mystery Inc.

    In General 
  • Adaptational Badass: Fred is a former Army Ranger, Velma has doctorates on several fields, Daphne honed her martial art skills, Shaggy is an (unpolished) amateur sorcerer and Scooby Doo is his familiar.
  • Those Meddling Kids: The very first at doing this.


Scooby-Doo is a Great Dane who is the pet and best friend of novice mage Shaggy Rogers. Due to their cowardice, Scooby's natural animalistic instincts do rise to the surface, as they do when under the effects of Daphne's "Scooby Snacks" (brownie bites with a special herbal additive) or whenever Shaggy or Shaggy's friends are in real danger.

  • Big Friendly Dog: Scooby is not aggressive. He does not attack monsters. He runs away from them. It's easy to forget since he's so goofy, but Scoob's almost as big and heavy as a grown man.
  • Catchphrase: "Scooby-Dooby-Doo!" and "Yikes!"
  • Cowardly Lion: As usual, Shaggy's cowardice has passed on to him, but his braver instincts still shine through.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Thanks to Shaggy's magical enhancement, he can now eat all sorts of things normal dogs wouldn't be able to, like chocolate.
  • Food as Bribe: Scooby-Snacks made by Daphne are an excellent incentive to make him do spooky things.
  • Heroic Dog: While cowardly, he's still an earnest and loyal being who will never abandon his friends.
  • Prehensile Tail: He can use his tail to open locks.
  • Speech-Impaired Animal: All of Scooby's words invariably start with an 'R', except for when he says his name, and sometimes even then.
  • Team Pet: Of Mystery Inc., being their loyal dog.
  • Uplifted Animal: Once a normal Great Dane, Shaggy's dormant powers gave him the ability to talk and even briefly walk on two legs.

    Norville "Shaggy" Rogers

Scooby's best friend and a cowardly novice mage who's scared of monsters. Despite that, Shaggy is a member of Mystery, Inc.

  • Beatnik: He is part this and part-hippie, minimizing the usual beatnik stereotypes.
  • Big Eater: Here it is explained he eats so much because of his mystic powers.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: He can't bring himself to express his feelings towards Velma.
  • Catchphrase: "Zoinks!", which he screams whenever he's scared.
  • Cowardly Lion: As always he prefers not to be in scary situations, but always goes through with it for his friends (and Scooby-Snacks).
  • Idiot Savant: Despite his general cowardliness, Shaggy has picked up some interesting skills.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: He'll do anything to help his dog, including braving his fears and using his powers.
  • Middle Child Syndrome: His parents neglected him in favor of his brothers, so he found comfort with his aunt and uncle.
  • Nervous Wreck: Usually. He's easily scared and tends to panic under pressure.
  • Non-Action Guy: He considers himself a 'Lover, not a Fighter'.
  • Perma-Stubble: His classical stubble beard which goes with his generally laid back attitude.
  • Related in the Adaptation: His aunt and uncle are Liz Tremayne and Chester Williams, who are part of The Swamp Thing's supporting cast.
    • His father Daniel Rogers is a former Corporal of the US Army and friend of Slade Wilson in Teen Titans.
    • His older brother Thomas Rogers is Little Boy Blue of the Blue Boys in Sensation Comics. His younger brother Brice Rogers is the hero Moonman of World's Finest.

    Fred Jones

A former U.S. Army soldier who would only be in the service for six years before he was discharged after his convoy was hit by a roadside IED and besieged by hostiles. Fred is the security expert and driver of the team.

  • Badass Driver: Serves as Mystery Machine's driver (though they do rotate out on long-hauls or whenever driving through the night).
  • Blue Is Heroic: As usual, Fred's outfit is mostly blue.
  • Catchphrase: "Let's Split Up, Gang!"
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Has blonde hair and is the heroic wheelman of Mystery Inc.
  • The Hero: A rare case since Daphne's the one in charge of the team, and he's actually proud of his role to his team. What was meant to be a temporary arrangement turned long-term when Fred's tactical and survivalist expertise helped Daphne's team out a few pickles, though it took Fred a while to accept monsters were real.
  • Iconic Item: He will defend his orange ascot vigorously against any fashion police who mock it.
  • Lampshade Hanging: The rest of Mystery Inc. point out his tendency of always splitting up.
  • Perma-Stubble: This incarnation of Fred has a noticeable stubble.
  • Tattoo as Character Type: This version of Fred has tattoos on his arms which represent his past as an Army Ranger.

    Daphne Blake

The leader of the team. She is known for her sense in style & fashion and her fiery red hair and has an on-and-off again relationship with her team's tactical expert Fred Jones.

  • Adaptational Job Change: Almost every version of Mystery Inc. has Fred as their leader. Here that role instead goes to Daphne.
  • Badass Normal: She's highly skilled martial artist of the group. She's also an expert markswoman, motorcyclist and has training in gymnastics and surfing.
  • Catchphrase: "Jeepers!" and "I bet I could change his mind with a Scooby Snack!". She also tends to say "Oh, Fred..." in a lot of different ways.
  • Fiery Redhead: She's a redhead and easily has the shortest temper of the entire team.
  • Girly Bruiser: She's black belt who can fight, while still being the pretty Girly Girl type.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: Though she's not wearing her purple top, pink pantyhose, and purple shoes like other incarnations, her purple hat and jacket counts.
  • In-Series Nickname: She's called Daph, Danger-Prone Daphne, Red and Crush.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Her usual career. After graduating from college with a degree in journalism, Daphne got a job working on Roy Raymond, Jr's television program "Impossible... But True" where she became a fan-favorite paranormal investigative correspondent. For this assignment, Daphne had to learn a wide range of skills, from physical activities like spelunking, parachuting, and diving; to more cerebral disciplines such as Native American history, occult lore, and forensic anthropology.
  • The Leader: Of the Mystery Inc.
  • Plucky Girl: She is trusting, enthusiastic, and kind, and at times lovestruck.
  • Related in the Adaptation:
    • Her grandfather was John Blake Jr., making her great-niece of Edward Blake/The Comedian and Zinda Blake/Lady Blackhawk, as well as second cousin of Jade Nguyen and Artemis Crock.
    • Her siblings are Yvonne Blake, Walking Shadow in the Pre-Crisis comics, and Jerry Blake, a member of Checkmate.
    • Through her uncle Reese Blake, she's cousins with Thomas, RJ and George Blake.

  • Statuesque Stunner: 5'9"/175cm tall and very beautiful.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Velma's Tomboy.
  • Weirdness Magnet: More like a Trouble Magnet. It seems that Daphne's aura, through no fault of her own, will often draw chaotic forces toward her.

    Velma Dinkley

The brains of the Mystery Inc. She is known for her vast smarts and witty personality.

  • Action Girl: Like Daphne, she knows martial arts. In her case she has a Black Belt in Judo.
  • Adaptational Sexuality: This version of Velma is bisexual, while in the series she had moments of Ambiguously Bi.
  • Agent Scully: She is the more vocal skeptic of the group, but for the most part she just goes along with it.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her midsection is exposed.
  • Blind Without 'Em: As always, she's basically blind without her glasses.
  • Catchphrase: "Jinkies!"
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's the most sarcastic wit of the group.
  • Embarrassing Tattoo: Apparently she has a Hex Girl tattoo from one of her hook-ups with the Hex Girls. Which one is unclear for now.
  • The Glasses Come Off: Averted. Not only she is blind without her glasses, she also loses some of her intelligence.
  • Incompatible Orientation: She's bi but unfortunately Daphne is heterosexual, meaning she won't reciprocate her occasional flirting.
  • Mr. Exposition: Her Dinkley files are used to explain several supernatural factors within Earth 27.
  • Online Alias: Her Network ID is 'Four-Eyes'.
  • The Smart Girl: Arguably a Trope Codifier. Velma is the team's genius, hacker, chemist, alchemist, and a resident know-it-all. It should come to no surprise that Velma's parents not only gave Velma a natural born genius, but encouraged its growth.
  • Stronger Than They Look: Despite being the shortest (human) member of Mystery Inc., she's described as 'Freakishly Strong'.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Daphne's Girly Girl.

  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: During a MeVids convention, she tried to impress some Amazon guests with a spell that "sounded cool", accidentally releasing an undead monstrosity that had to be contained by Wonder Woman and Maravilla before she could reseal it. It goes without saying that Rebecca tends to often find herself put into dangerous situations and other sticky situations of her own making or choosing.

  • Reformed Criminal: Used to be a crook until he finished his sentence and was recruited into the Power Company.

    Striker Z (Danny Tsang) 
  • Super Strength: Danny is stronger than a normal human due to his body acting as a "bio-battery", though he can deplete his energy and lose his strength and endurance as a result.

  • Omniglot: She's fluent in English, French, Spanish, German and Arabic.

She got better about it... or they became numb to it.

    Hot Spot (Isaiah Crocket)
