The Justice League of Earth-27.

On New Year's Eve 2003, Brainiac invaded the Earth and seven heroes rose up to stop him. Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Flash and the Martian Manhunter would go on to form the Justice League of America (later rebranded the Justice League). This team would go on to gain over eighty members and has easily become the most recognized superhero team in the world.

     In General 
  • Badass Crew: THE most Badass Crew in the DC Universe. That explanation is enough.
  • Big Good: The founding members of the League are this.
  • Breaking the Fellowship: The death of Jason Todd ended up leading to the dissolution of the original Titans and even the first Justice League.
  • Corporate-Sponsored Superhero: In 2009 the team was re-established under A.R.G.U.S. and U.N. supervision and re-branded as the Justice League.
  • Dream Team: The League brings the greatest superheroes of the Earth together.
  • Home Base: The Hall of Justice and the Watchtower.
  • The Paragon: There are many superhero teams in the DCU... but there's them, and there's The League. They are the greatest, most powerful and most admirable of them all. A hero making it into the Justice League basically graduated into hanging with the big boys.
  • Putting the Band Back Together: After the dissolution of Justice League of America in 2007 there were two members (the Question and Captain Atom) that chose to band together. Their goal was to create a new Justice League based in their shared home of Hub City. They were joined by Agents Sato, Steel, and Smith from the DEO, who had received special permission from Director Bones to work as the team's government liaisons. While they did manage to recruit fresh talent from the Titans (Blue Beetle and Booster Gold) and a young Hub City heroine named Nightshade, they never really got their new Justice League off the ground, with the Question ultimately quitting the team just eight months after it was founded in order to relocate to Gotham City.
  • Super Team: The Trope Codifier in the comics and media.
  • Two Girls to a Team: The Justice League of America female founders Wonder Woman and Black Canary are this and later the League would expand more female recruit members into Gender-Equal Ensemble later years.

The android has since become a noble superhero Hoewever, the original Red Tornado was destroyed after he defected his creator. Later On, Morrow built a android called Mister Twister, the lifeform now housed in Red Tornado was a teenage girl named Maxine Hunkel, a hyper-excitable (but actually depressed) aerokinetc metahuman with a passion for musical theater that had ran away from her home after her powers developed, where she was discovered by Morrow and used as one of his test subjects. Now remembering who she is, Maxine Hunkel is allowed to once again pick her life with the help of S.T.A.R. Labs giving Red’s chassis a secondary human form, perfectly detailed to the look of Maxine’s original body.


  • Absent-Minded Professor: Don't let her naturally bubbly personality and motor mouth tendencies fool you, Maxine's actually incredibly intelligent.
  • Blow You Away: Maxine's nickname isn't "The Witch of The Winds" for nothing. Red Tornado's true form was a powerful entity composed purely of violent wind forces. Their android form channeled these forces through their arms and legs to produce bursts of cyclone-force winds and high speed forward velocity.
  • Broken Bird: She's been insulted and picked on all her life for her Motor Mouth and obscure interests, and copes with it by putting up a happy facade.
  • Composite Character: Red Tornado in Earth-27 is a composite character of Red Tornado (John Smith), Red Tornado of Earth 2 (Lois Lane) and Cyclone (Maxine Hunkel), the grand-daughter of the original Red Tornado (Ma Hunkel).
  • Color Character: Red Tornado.
  • Elemental Powers: Wind-based. Can project his/her whirlwinds at over 350 mph from each arm. their winds are said to level a building in seconds.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Maxine can process food and drink much more efficiently than humans can. She is bionic. Biological and mechanical. STAR Labs gave her the best of both worlds.
  • Genius Ditz: Don't let her naturally bubbly personality and motor mouth tendencies fool you, Max' is actually incredibly intelligent.
  • Genki Girl: One of the only examples in western comics. Hyperactive and frequently seen jumping around or talking on-end.
  • Hearing Voices: An aspect of her aerokinetic abilities is that she can draw far-off sounds to her ears on the winds. Its pretty useful, but sadly, it also lets her hear all the negative things people say about her, both in and out of costume.
  • Motor Mouth: Defines this trope, going on huge rants ad nauseam, saying about a paragraph in the time in takes most characters to say one or two lines.
  • Nanomachines: Technically the source of her powers. Occasionally AI Is A Crap Shoot, leading to odd predicaments, though they've never been outright malevolent.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Red Body and yellow/gold accents.
  • Red Is Heroic: He/She's a heroic, red robot.
  • Redhead In Green: She is redhead and her civilian outfit is predominately green.
  • Stepford Smiler: She acts cheerful and lighthearted but she actually has serious depression issues.
  • Took a Level in Cheerfulness: Her teammates are actually surprised The Stoic Red Tornado and Genki Girl Maxine Hunkel were once the same person.
  • Tornado Move: Red Tornado could ride on tornadoes and generate them with her hands. By channeling these cyclone-force winds through the lower part of her body, she can fly at incredible speeds or hover in one place.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: She's a metahuman who T. O. Morrow turned into Mister Twister through mechanization. She was turned into the android Red Tornado by Adam Strange and later gained a gynoid body, and then a second one resembling her original self after she regained her lost memories.

  • Ascended Fanboy: Vic Sage after reading Rorschach's journal originally tried to emulate Rorschach's brand of justice (at least, from the early days of Rorschach's career). However Vic did not anticipate how difficult it can be to effortlessly break hands and after failing to do so during an interrogation, Vic himself found himself the one in for a beating. The Question was able to turn the tides and come out victorious and as he dealt a knock-out blow and dusted off his coat, witnesses to the event recall the Question muttering "Rorschach sucks" to himself.
  • Badass Normal: One of the 'non-supers' in the league. Justified as his talents are detective work, not super powers.
  • Badass Longcoat: With his trenchcoat and fedora, he is pretty awesome.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Comes with his status as the League's resident Conspiracy Theorist.
  • The Blank: Practically the Trope Codifier.

  • Action Dad: Father of AJ Curry and a badass king and fighter.

  • Mr. Fanservice: He goes topless quite a bit, due to being a swimmer.

  • Punny Name: He is a king named Arthur.

      • He is also pretty immune to cold, having spent six months in Antarctica with just pants and not even being bothered. He has an immeasurable resistance to heat as well, having endured things from heat blasts, explosions, and even swimming into open lava vents. Though dry, arid environments like deserts cause him more struggle.
    • Super Not-Drowning Skills: He can breathe normally underwater like all Atlanteans.
    • Super Strength: On par with Wonder Woman, and just below Superman.

    • Telepathy: He is capable of psychically moving sea life to do as he wants. But if their survival instinct is high enough, they can resist his orders.

  • Unscrupulous Hero: Has crossed into this realm here and there. He's still easily the most brutal member of the League even on his best days.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: She may be an even more diplomatic face than her husband, but do not get on her bad side.
  • Cool Crown: Her headdress.

  • Meaningful Name: Mera ta'Xebel ro'Curry translates to "Mera of House Xebel and married into Curry" (she uses the alternative "ro'Atlan" for official records as Orin wished to keep his identity as Arthur Curry secret).
  • Redhead In Green: She's a redhead, and her most common outfit is green.

For some reason, Ray's metahuman physiology allows him to not explode when he is miniaturized, unlike other living things which explode after a short time of being miniaturized. By shifting most of his mass into his fists, Ray has found he can punch with incredible force.

Nabu an ancient being tasked with protecting the world from the powers of chaos, Dr. Fate must take on a mortal body as his host- and he doesn't much care what said host has to say about it. Giovanni "John" Zatara is Zatanna's father and mentor of John Constantine came into possession of the Helm of Nabu, succeeding Kent Nelson as the new Doctor Fate.


  • Badass Cape: Comes with the powers.
  • Clingy MacGuffin: Nabu basically *is* Fate, with his vessel mostly watching from the inside. As the team learns, it's not easy to convince Nabu to let go once you've accepted the helmet.
  • Composite Character: Doctor Fate's Current host is Giovanni Zatara and its previous host was Kent Nelson like in Young Justice.

  • Large Ham: He's not too emotive, but nearly everything Nabu says has a tremendous amount of gravitas.

  • Magic and Powers: A good deal of what's on that list.
  • Mystical High Collar: Part of his costume.
  • Stage Magician: Giovanni was this before he became Doctor Fate.
  • Voice of the Legion: A (largely) heroic example. Whoever wears the Helmet of Fate will speak with Nabu's deep voice overlying their voice
  • Willing Channeler: Someone has to choose to put him on, though they might come to regret it.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: A firm believer in it. Those who "defy fate" and attempt to imbalance order are his enemies. That may even include other superheroes, depending on what he decides their fate to be.

  • Bi the Way: Given she's from Themyscira, she unsurprisingly swings both ways.
  • Blade on a Stick: Her signature spear.
  • The Butcher: Before she was an immortal, Nubia was a survivor. Having soon learned the language after making herself useful to the women by demonstrating her skills at skinning, butchering, and even cooking, Nubia became an integral part of the community, or rather several communities.
  • Composite Character: Of Amazons Philippus and Nubia from the comics.
  • Defector from Decadence: At first she sought out war and conflict, desiring honor and pride that went to the victorious and mighty in battle. But with each battle and war, Nubia’s taste for bloodshed soured.
  • Lady of War: Not quite as regal or graceful as Hippolyta, but still shows shades of this as a consummate warrior woman.
  • Legacy Character: Nubia temporary became the second Wonder Woman after Diana took a break from superheroics after being pregnant with Steve Trevor to give birth with her son Jason Trevor.
  • Made of Indestructium: Her Bracelets
  • The Needless: Like Amazonians as Nubia stays on Themyscira, she does not require food, water or any other form of nourishment to maintain her health and vitality.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: Like Diana she's not at the same level as Superman, which is why she has those wristbands, she can be wounded by sharp or piercing objects.
  • Official Couple: Dating Augustus Freeman.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's almost as old as Hippolyta.

  • Badass Bookworm: Raquel Ervin is a gifted writer as well as a voracious reader.
  • Bare Your Midriff: As Rocket.
  • Barrier Warrior: She can create force fields, they're pretty powerful. This field's kinetic energy nullifies the energy of anything trapped within down to the molecular level. As a result, Rocket can use the inertialess field to effectively immobilize her opponents.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Rocket has no innate powers but derive from the inertia winder installed in her belt buckle. When activated, the inertia winder surrounds Rocket in an "inertia field," which absorbs and stores any kinetic energy used against it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She's snarky even in the heat of battle.
  • Energy Absorption: Her barriers only get stronger when kinetic energy is applied. As with her kinetic punches, the amount of damage she can cause depends on the amount of kinetic energy she uses.
  • Flight: Rocket can fly by releasing her inertia field's kinetic energy beneath her, launching her skyward. Initially, she was not very skilled with this ability and thus could only leap over great distances.
  • Kinetic Weapons Are Just Better: Uses her force fields as projectiles sometimes. Rocket can hit with superhuman force by releasing kinetic energy as she throws a punch.
  • Sassy Black Woman: A milder example than most people who fall under the trope, but she still fits the bill. Raquel is well known for her liberal views on economic and social issues, which results in frequent political arguments with her conservative partner. She gets along famously with Green Arrow, though.
  • Sidekick: to Icon. She was the one who convinced him to become a hero and his partner in crime.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Maintaining a force bubble around someone else, whether to protect them or trap them, leaves her more or less a sitting duck.

Click for Civilian Look 

A mechanical engineering genius of S.T.A.R Labs who helps the Flash. He would later developed metahuman powers as Vibe because of his unique vibration and potential dimensional abilities.

  • Like Brother and Sister: He directly states that he's pretty much Caitlin's brother.
  • Keet: Even Barry is calm and collected by comparison.
  • Motor Mouth: When he is talking about something he likes, he tends to go into vivid and extensive detail.
  • Nice Guy: Out of all the S.T.A.R. Lab team, he's the one who was most interested in helping Barry adjust to his new life initially instead of treating him as walking lab experiment when he awoke from his coma.
  • The Nicknamer: Cisco has a penchant for giving meta-criminals and masked heroes monikers that fit their attributes, personalities, or powers. Cisco claims to really dislike codenames that incorporate colors; for instance, Cisco gives Oliver and Dinah a lot of grief for "Green Arrow" and "Black Canary". He also really dislikes "Speedy".

  • Sweet Tooth: He's constantly snacking on candy and other sugary foods.

His grandfather was a retired automotive mechanic and had no shortage of mechanical textbooks and manuals lying around. Cisco read those at young age, and learned to part an rebuild an internal combustion engine before he wetting the bed (don't bring that up, it's sore subject to him). A year later, he was the youngest kid in a local college science fair at ten years old.
  • Thinking Up Portals: This is one of his abilities. Cisco has the ability to harness and manipulate the forces of reality, enabling him to create tears between space, time and reality. This also allows him to travel between dimensions at will.

On John’s first day at Cadmus Labs, he was given a shot which he was told was a simple flu shot. In truth, it was an enzyme that heightened John’s mental processes, particularly with his ability to process his sensory information and his response time to such stimuli; John was the ideal security specialist.

By the time Oliver freed John, the lab was torched, most of the workers had been killed or escaped, and John had been subjected to some memory erasing treatments but was alive. Oliver took John back to Star City and fixed him up.

Shortly after John’s recovery, he found out that Oliver had been making plans to become a superhero in the style of Gotham’s Batman. John offered to help. At first, John played support and let Ollie have all the fun. As time went on, John’s skills became more needed in the field, watching Ollie’s back. Now, John sports his own costume and calls himself "The Guardian".

  • The Cape: Out of all four Superman pretenders, he is the only who can be considered unambiguously good. Put this together with the fact that he's simply an ordinary man working a blue-collar job, and you'll see why some consider his heroics to be even more impressive those of the big man himself.

  • Gentle Giant: Despite everything he still considers himself a scientist and not a fighter.
  • Honorary True Companion: He's an honorary member of the House of El.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: The suit's ability to impart a resistance to physical injury was quite considerable before the addition of the inertial dampening field. Small arms fire was generally not a threat but larger firearms could prove dangerous. All of the suits have performed admirably considering Steel's opponents, who include the Grandmaster and Metallo.
  • Official Couple: He's officially engaged to Lana Lang.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: The "Irons" aside, it's also a shout-out to American folklore hero John Henry.

  • Happily Married: To Ellen Frazier.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: Buddy becomes infused with more power from The Red (the metaphysical manifestation of the Animal Kingdom), and his power to use animal abilities is morphed into actually physically manifesting animal characteristics.
  • Mundane Utility: Buddy's jacket looked really cool and helped set him apart by giving him a unique look, but the whole reason he started wearing it was so he had pockets to carry around his keys and notes from his wife reminding him to bring home milk. Also, he admits that he's self-conscious about wearing a skintight suit.
  • Speaks Fluent Animal: In addition to his mimic abilities, Animal Man can make contact with animals, empathize with, "talk" to and see their thoughts and memories. This ability to transfer his life essence has allowed him to survive even when his body has been killed.

Still, Mary did her best to be gentle with Billy as she did sympathize him as both had lost their mothers to substance abuse. In the end, their rivalry did not really go anywhere heated with Freddy playing mediator between the two, but throughout they would always remain the two siblings most likely to quarrel over trivial matters.

  • Really 700 Years Old: Since New Gods age much, much slowly than humans, they're this by default. Barda herself is over a thousand years old.
  • Simple Staff: Her most-used weapon is an extendable staff.
    • Actually, it's more of a Boom Stick called the Mega Rod, which fires powerful energy blasts that have nearly felled Superman.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's the page picture for a reason. Her height is at least 7ft tall, and considered quite beautiful.
  • Super Strength: Barda's super strength comes from her heritage as a member of New Genesis, where all of the people of that realm are genetically superior to normal humans in their physical characteristics.
  • Super Toughness: Barda is incredibly tough, though she is somewhat vulnerable to bullets and bladed weapons like Wonder Woman

  • Action Dad: He and Barda have two children, Avia and Jacob Free.
  • Amazon Chaser: To him, Barda's superior size, ferocity and strength are a part of what he loves about her.
  • Badass Pacifist: Scott Free is a pacifist and never uses violence unless all other means are exhausted. That doesn't mean he's a pushover. He is as skilled as the Blue Beetle or Black Canary, he was training like a warrior by Granny Goodness. In combat, Mr. Miracle often uses his acrobatic skill and extraordinary leaps and flips to outflank opponents and his enhanced reflexes to dodge attacks.
  • Cool Shades: Wears them to hide his eyes that are different from humans.
  • Escape Artist: This is his main ability, that he has perfected throughout the centuries. He can escape most bindings in his sleep. In fact he has passed beyond unconscious competence in the realm of meta-cognition. He is aware of the unconscious procedures he's mastered and can modify them in their use with other skills or to use new knowledge. He is marginally better at escapes than the Batman, though it would take another expert to make that determination.
  • Genius Bruiser: Scott can formulate plans and strategies to get free from seemingly any restraint, given enough preparation he can release himself, and others, from even mind control.
  • Happily Married: With Barda.

  • Sky Surfing: His Aero-Discs. Thin metal plates about a foot across. The New Gods use them for personal travel. They can reach speeds of 250 mph and attain altitudes of a few hundred feet. They can hover. Scott has modified his discs considerably.
  • Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Not that he's short (he's 6ft tall), but his wife is much taller than he is.
  • Women Are Wiser: Gender Inverted — Barda is quick-tempered and impulsive, while Scott is more logical and down-to-earth. It’s one of the reasons why she loves him.

     Firehawk (Lorraine Reilly) 

  • Defector from Decadence: She was a Salvation Syndicate member before defecting and joining the Justice League.
  • Distaff Counterpart: Lorraine is turned into Firehawk by being forcibly subjected to the same type of reactor meltdown that created Firestorm. Her powers are similar, but are more focused on nuclear fire than molecular restructuring.
  • Flaming Hair: Firehawk is perpetually surrounded by a corona of "atomic fire". This ambient corona is for visual effect only, and does not possess any thermal properties. Firehawk manifests a pair of feathered wings to aid in aerial navigation, but it is unclear whether she actually requires them for thrust or propulsion. Like Firestorm, she can likely fly without the aid of her wings, but chooses to employ them for aesthetic reasons.
  • Flying Firepower: Firehawk can channel the nuclear energy within her body, granting herself the ability to fly.
  • Hand Blast: Firehawk can generate waves of thermal nuclear energy, which she can focus into blasts of heat from her hands.
  • I Love Nuclear Power Like Firestorm, Her primary power is to manipulate radioactive energy.

A Women's Royal Naval Service commisioner who worked as a weapons analyst until she somehow made the right connections or impressed the right sort of people to get recruited into the top-secret Lionheart Program — working on finding combat applications for the technology which Veidt and Osterman had begun sharing. Before she would be consumed by the Intrisic explosion struck inside the HMS Tintagel warship

Twenty seven years and fifty-two days after the intrinsic explosion, the wreckage of the Tintagel suddenly appeared in Bjorland... with a single survivor on board. Though alive, Penny Black had been changed. ARGUS were the first responders to the anomaly, dispatching medical shuttles to the site where Penny was found half-frozen and comatose.

Once Penny learned the truth about the state of her nation under the control of Adam Sutler's Norsefire Party, she was all too eager to enlist with ARGUS. Penny was granted status as a Special Agent and assigned to infiltrate Britain. She wasted little time forming a team of guerrilla revolutionaries willing to take the fight to Norsefire.
