Doomsday is a seemingly unstoppable behemoth who adapts his physical form to overcome and destroy anything or anyone in his path. He is best known for being the attempt murderer of Superman and Supergirl.

  • Composite Character: His appearance is mostly based on his Injustice incarnation.
  • The Dreaded: Many in the superhero and supervillain community are terrified of him especially since he is one of the few beings alive who can go toe-to-toe with Superman and is the being infamous for actually almost killing the Man of Steel. Superman himself admits to being frightened of him.
  • Generic Doomsday Villain: The Trope Namer. His sole reason for being was almost putting Superman to his death before he sucumbed into a coma. And to defeat Superman, Doomsday had to be overtly strong and feral to the point he has basically no personality, being comparable to an angry stampeding animal.
  • It Only Works Once: His ability to regenerate and adapt means any method of defeating him will only be useful once, then you're screwed if you try it again.
  • The Juggernaut: You'd need someone like Superman or stronger to even think of slowing him down.

One of Martian Manhunter's oldest foes, Despero was transformed by the Flame of Pytar into a galactic tyrant whose psychic might is matched only by his prowess as a physical juggernaut.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He's bright pink.
  • The Brute: An interesting example in that he clearly revels in his muscle and enjoys taking on the heroes with both the physical and psychic equivalents of overpowering brute force, yet when push comes to shove he shows his true colors as a Genius Bruiser.
  • The Dreaded: Anything involving him is an "oh shit" moment. When he shows up, holding back is not an option, and it always takes multiple teams just to slow his progress. A single team going up against him is a suicide mission.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: It frequently takes multiple teams to bring him down, and even that isn't always guaranteed.
  • Psychic Powers: Wields a regular arsenal of them, and is probably one of, if not the, foremost telepathic threats in the DCU.

They have enough firepower to threaten cities, and one of the higher-level weapons has potential theological implications... also, real Green Lanterns don't like being around them, with responses varying from "headache" to "homicidal urges." The GL Corps and the Reach have some history...
  • Hero Killer: They're the ones who killed Don Hall.


One of the most powerful Daemonites in existence thanks to the Acuran body that he stole. He is leader of the Daemonites and an enemy of the WildC.A.T.s as well as Mr. Majestic.

  • Demonic Possession: Helspont as a Daemonite are parasitic beings that not only take complete control over another being's body but inhabits their mind as well. They feed on the nutrients and physiology of the host body until the body is destroyed or the Daemonite abandons it. Normally, possession causes no harm to the physical body but the process changes frequently. The stronger the Daemonite the easier the transition. Occasionally, the Daemonite can leave the host body violently and destroy the body.

  • Skull for a Head: Helspont has a flaming horned skull for a head due to his possession of an Acuran host.

  • Telekinesis: His telekinetic and energy powers have been used almost interchangeably for blasts, shields and controlling things from a distance.

Earth Villains

     Lex Luthor

The president of United States of America and is one of the most brilliant men alive. Luthor presents a benevolent public face while using his wealth, intellect, and resources for mysterious reasons.

  • Adaptation Name Change: In E27 Lex's company it's called LuthorCorp instead of LexCorp simply because Word of God thinks the name "LexCorp" is silly. Not many people name their Fortune 500 Companies after their first name.
  • Affably Evil: Luthor tries to present this way, he may actually be fairly reasonable when he's not dealing with Superman. One thing that is often noted is that Lex is actually quite sincere about how he treats his employees, and he has respect for blue-collar people who go beyond their means to get ahead (since he used to be one as well).
  • Alliterative Name: Lex Luthor. He's one of the many L.L. who litters the Superman mythos.
  • And That's Terrible: A nod to The Superdictionary as the Trope Namer. Lex's juvenile criminal record includes an incident in which he, as a prank, stole a catering van from a convention his father was hosting. Ultimately no one was hurt, except the forty or so sheet cakes which were spilled over a three mile stretch of road when Lex did not secure the back doors properly before stealing the van.
  • Archnemesis Dad: Towards Superboy who was created at his instigation from his and Superman's DNA.
  • Bald of Evil: Perhaps the iconic example.
  • Benevolent Boss: Luthor may be a tyrannical boss, or a master manager who takes careful care of his underlings' needs.
  • Big Bad: If somebody is screwing with Superman's life, the odds of it being traced back to Luthor stand at somewhere around ninety percent.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: In addition to engaging in a wide variety of unethical business practices, LuthorCorp is deeply involved with the illegal arms trade in Metropolis and beyond.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He made several bunkers around the world, all of which contain weapons and tools (both man made and intergalactic) to combat Superman.
  • Cut Lex Luthor a Check: Lex is the Trope Namer. He's the smartest man in the world, but he wastes his resources on fighting a flying alien in blue spandex because he's angry that there's someone out there that's better than he.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: His abusive childhood is just the tip of the iceberg.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Almost half of what he says is snark, and he's never less than 100% deadpan.
  • The Dreaded: By superhero and supervillain alike. Anyone who can go up against Superman and come out even time and again tends to earn the fear and respect of every cape, cowl, and criminal out there.
  • Driven by Envy: Lex was the most beloved figure in Metropolis before Superman arrived, and he will never forgive "the alien" for taking that from him.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He deeply cares about his half-sister Luna, his wife Erica Alexandra and his daughter Lena Luthor acting as his own Morality Pets.
  • Foil: Superman and Luthor stand, respectively, atop the pinnacles of physical and intellectual perfection, have a vast array of powers at their disposal (Superman's innate, Luthor's technological), and understand what it's like to be isolated from society. Yet where Superman tries to use his powers (which are uniquely his) to help the rest of the people around him, Luthor uses his (which are at least partly owed to his workers and the various alien races he's lifted concepts from) to exploit people for his own gain. Throw in the fact that Superman is an alien who nevertheless represents the best of humanity, and Luthor is a human who represents the worst of humanity, and you've got a solid contrast.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Towards Superman. No matter what Lex does he will never be as powerful, as loved, or as good as Superman.
  • Irrational Hatred: His hate for Superman is based on nothing but his own personal prejudices.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Luthor's exposure to Kryptonite allowed him to keep Superman at bay and get away with all sorts of crime, but eventually he learned it had given him fatal cancer.
  • Locked Out of the Loop: In Earth-27, the general population don't know about Lex Luthor's criminal activities, he is regarded as a respected business person, and now the president of the United States; even though Superman and most of the Justice League suspects he has been involved in many evil deeds. He is the financial backer of the Legion of Doom, and a member of The Light, two criminal organizations, but the heroes of Earth don't know about it. However Gorilla Grodd's Oracle File indicates he withdrawn his support.
  • Narcissist: Probably the best diagnosis for Lex, given his inability to see others as anything other than extensions of himself, his pathological need to be the most important person in the room, and his identification with beings like Brainiac and the Joker.
  • President Evil: The Trope Namer, in fact.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: He's aware that Clark Kent is Superman thanks to a file he stole from his father before he went to Europe.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: What money cannot buy, political influence and business connections can.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Money!: There's not a lot of things Lex's money can't buy.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: Lex got himself elected to president of the United States. He endorsed and advertised to give amnesty of Alien imigrants to form The Advena Legion.
    • As President, Luthor has championed universal healthcare, justice reform (including no longer enforcing federal bans on recreational and medicinal uses of marijuana), and extensive immigration (including extraterrestrial immigration) reform. He has also championed the second amendment, the rights of corporations, and slashed defense spending by considerable margins. He holds a 85% public approval rating.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Lex Luthor and Clark Kent both became friends after he and Clark clash into into a river with Lex's sport car in accident that almost killed him. Lex was knocked out and Clark saved his life, but later their friendship went sour after Clark keep his secrets away from him.

Supernatural Villains

  • Affably Evil: He's really quite polite when speaking to the heroes, but they all still know better than to trust him.
  • Blood Knight: Obviously he thrives on conflict.
  • Clairvoyance: Ares is capable of witnessing and understanding events that he wasn't present for, as if he was there.
  • Cool Helmet: His traditional Spartan's helmet.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Ares firmly believes this and views his own continued existence as a testament to mankind's capacity for evil or propensity for slaughtering one another to validate his misanthropy. He can grow weary of it from time to time, even growing disgusted by the warring tendencies that fuel his power.
  • Immortality: As an Olympian God worshipped by the ancient Greeks and Romans, Ares has lived for at least millennia.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Ares is incredibly resistant to all forms of damage. He has taken hits from the likes of Wonder Woman without suffering any injury at all.
  • Physical God: from the Classical Mythology.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His armor is black and red, and he's a ruthless and dangerous god.
  • The Strategist: Oddly a twist on the original myth, since Ares was said to encompass brute force and untempered violence.
  • Super Strength: Ares is a god with almost infinite strength. He has manhandled incredibly powerful beings such as Wonder Woman. He has also held onto an active missile with little problem.
  • War God: He's The War God of the Greek Pantheon.

     Mr. Mxyzptlk

Mr. Mxyzptlk is a fifth-dimensional imp with the power to do almost anything he can imagine.

  • Badass Fingersnap: He sometimes uses finger-snaps to initiate his reality distortion.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: 99% of the time, Mr. Mxyzptlk just wants to use his awesome Reality Warper powers to play harmless practical jokes and be a funny pest. He's a cartoonish man-child through and through, but his power is unbelievable and he could wipe out all of reality with a fart or a sneeze if he felt like it.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Mxyzptlk is also able to do this. As his portrait shows fingersnapping the DC Comics logo from 2016, the E27 Logo and artist Phil Cho's autograph signature.
  • Dimensional Traveler: One of the many inhabitants of the Fifth Dimension.
  • Great Gazoo: An imp from the fifth dimension.
  • The Jester: Was a court jester in his home dimension.

  • Pointy Ears: Comes with being an imp of sorts.
  • Reality Warper: Mxyzptlk possesses an unlimited ability to warp reality within the third dimension in any way he can imagine. His powers have been described alternatively as the product of fifth-dimensional magic or advanced technology from the fifth dimension that appears to be magical to third-dimensional beings. Attendant with his abilities is the fact that Mxyzptlk himself is not limited by physical laws: he needs no sustenance such as air or water, can exist in any environment (whether the bottom of the sea or in outer space) and is not vulnerable to any kind of real physical harm.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: Dresses in purple and orange.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Easily the most powerful member of Superman's Rogue's Gallery, with the only reason he doesn't defeat Superman outright is because he willingly restrains himself.
  • The Unpronounceable: Oh, that array of consonants makes discussion/spelling hard. It usually goes from "Mix-pih-tulk" to Mix-yez-pitl-ick". Backwards, it's easier to say ("Kel-tip-zex-im.").
  • Weaksauce Weakness: His only apparent vulnerability is that whenever he speaks his name backwards, he is shunted back to the fifth dimension, and all effects of his "magic" vanish, making everything as it was before he appeared. This is a temporary deterrent: after ninety days, he can again visit the third dimension at will.
