    The Spectre (Aztar/Raguel)

The Spectre is a supernatural being of near-unlimited might whose mission is to unleash the Vengeance of God upon evil men. He is always bound to the soul of a deceased human. He's one of the founding members of the Society.

  • Angelic Abomination: He might have some of Raguel's personality traits, but he doesn't have his soul, only what remains of his angelic grace. All that's left is indeed a specter of the angel he once was.
  • Beware the Superman: The most powerful Reality Warper in the DC universe is also dedicated to the explicit purpose of murderously punishing anyone he considers a "sinner". And he has no sense of scale (all crimes warrant death, from rape and murder to taking some pocket change from your mother's purse) or reluctance to slay innocents in pursuit of his goals.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: A specialty of the character.
  • Exalted Torturer: He's technically on the side of the heroes, but never shies from using deadly force even for offenses that can be barely construed as such.
  • Horrifying Hero: He's a wrathful angel possessing a dead human's body with god-like Reality Warper powers and a maniacal fixation on punishing sinners... which he does by dealing out nightmarish deaths and transformations. He's also willing to deal out the same punishments for even the most meagre crimes.
  • Knight Templar: Has a tendency to go overboard.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: His main powers.
  • Massive Numbered Siblings: While only "siblings" in the sense that they were created by The Presence, he has lots of spirit brothers and sisters, among them Lucifer Morningstar, Michael Demiurgos, Empyrean, Gabriel, Raphael, Metatron, Sandalphon, Amenadiel, Asmodel, Azazel, Belial, Duma, Imogen, Lilith, Ran Va Daath, Remiel, Saraquael, Suriel, Tali, Traumiel, Uriel and Zauriel.
  • The Omniscient: As a divine agent, the Spectre has access to virtually all of the knowledge in the universe and is even aware of events that have been altered by distortions in time.
  • Omniscient Morality License: What makes the Spectre so creepy; while his intentions are good, in many ways he's just as bad as the criminals he punishes, making him arguably not much more than a Serial-Killer Killer with superpowers.
  • Our Angels Are Different: The Voice revealed to Lucifer the Archangel Raguel, whom the latter thought he had killed thousands of years ago, was given a new purpose and name by The Presence as its Spirit of Vengeance.
  • Reality Warper: The Spectre is capable of warping and controlling reality. He can use his ability to control reality to simulate any form of superpower or ability from shapeshifting to warping time and space.
  • Vengeful Ghost

With deft skill and the element of surprise, Alan overpowered his captors and used their own weapons to kill Chang. Seeing this, Chang's men scattered.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Unlike the Oa-based Green Lanterns, Alan's weakness is not the color yellow, but wooden objects. Also unlike the other Lanterns, he still has this weakness.

Click for Civilian Look 

Dr. McNider lost his sight when gangsters bombed his house in retribution for saving an informant's life. Miraculously, he soon found that though he could no longer see in the light, he had perfect eyesight in darkness. Wearing dark goggles and creating "blackout bombs" to allow him to see during the day, he fought crime as Doctor Midnight.

  • Adaptation Name Change: His name was changed from Dr. Midnite to Midnight so he isn't confused with Papa Midnite.

    Wildcat (Ted Grant)
Click for Civilian Look 

Former pro boxing star Ted Grant, inspired by stories of the Minutemen, became a superhero to clear his name. Wildcat has served as a mentor to many younger heroes and villains including Batman, Black Canary, Catwoman and Barbara Gordon.

  • Boxing Battler: He's a former champion boxer who fights crime in a cat mask.
  • Boxing Lessons for Superman: He has used his skills to train other heroes how to box including Batman, Barbara Gordon, Catwoman, Black Canary, and Puma.
  • Cats Have Nine Lives: Ted Grant possesses the ability to return from the dead, a total of nine times. These "nine lives" are characteristic of the mythical properties of average house cats.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's generally able to fight well despite his old age and not carrying any weapons.
  • Dented Iron: He started out as just a really good boxer who donned a cat outfit and started fighting bad guys back in the 1900's. While he's in shockingly good shape given his age and now has Resurrective Immortality, he's picked up a lot of injuries over the years and his body is just older and not as capable as it once was.
  • Good Old Fisticuffs: No matter how big the opponent or how seemingly impossible the odds might be in or out of combat Wildcat will always solve the issue with boxing.
  • Kavorka Man: Covered in welts and cauliflower ear, he's still managed to gain interest from and sleep with Laurel Drake, Queen Hippolyta and dozens of other women. It helps that he shows women respect.
  • Made of Iron: Justified, since he's a former boxing champion. Ted Grant knows how to take a punch, or several.
  • Older Than They Look: He might look in his late forties but he was born in 1880, making him over one hundred years old.
  • One-Man Army: Ted loves a fight, and he's insanely good at it. He's surpassed as a Badass Normal only by the likes of Ricardo Diaz Jr., Lady Shiva and David Cain. He's taken on hordes of opponents on his own and won.
  • Resurrective Immortality: His "nine lives" curse fix works more like this since its really quite a bit more than the original nine lives he thought it was.

Click for Civilian Look 

Jay Garrick is the son of Greek God Hermes and the original super-speedster, who was the predecessor of the Flash and and a member of the Society. It was Jay Garrick's legendary heroics that inspired Barry Allen.

  • Cool Old Guy: Everyone in the DCU respects the hell out of him, and he's known as being the most polite man ever.

  • Happily Married: Jay and his wife Joan have been together for decades, and she still dotes on him.

  • Older Than They Look: He might look in his early sixties, but he was born on the same year as Alan Scott, making him over 200 years old.

  • Related in the Adaptation: Jay being the son of Hermes in Earth 27, he's also the nephew of Diana Prince/Wonder Woman.
  • Super Speed: Naturally, since he's a Flash.

    Suprema (Queen Hippolyta)
Click for Suprema 

Queen Hippolyta is the ruler of the Amazons and mother of Diana and adopted mother of Donna Troy, Nubia and Andraste. She is also the first Wonder Woman, after Diana, Nubia and Andraste and later as the heroine Suprema.

  • Action Mom: Never mind the fact that Diana is an adult...
  • Adaptation Name Change: Rather than taking the title of Wonder Woman, she goes by Suprema instead.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Polly".
  • All Amazons Want Hercules: In her case to the Greek God, Zeus. Also, when she's in the Society, Ted Grant, pretty much the embodiment of the gruff masculinity of his time.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: She is the queen of the Amazons, so you have to expect she'd be just as badass as the others.
  • Badass in Charge: She's the Queen of the Amazons, after all.
  • Gondor Calls for Aid: Though the Tribes of Themyscira may have decided to leave the Patriarch's World to live in Paradise, they did not abandon Mother Earth. When Gaia or the planet has been in jeopardy, the best and brightest of the Amazons have always been there to answer the call.
  • The High Queen: The ruler of Themiscyra, who's held in awe.
  • I Want Grandkids: Occasionally shows this inclination around Diana.
  • The Leader: Hippolyta was a born leader and strategist and is excellent in the arts of persuasion and diplomacy.
  • Like a Daughter to Me: Hippolyta took an active role to Andraste, Nubia and Donna Troy, essentially serving as a second mother to them.
  • Mythology Gag: Her alias as Olive Holloway is a nod to the wife of William Marston, Elizabeth Holloway, and their lover Olive Byrne. Marston was the creator of Wonder Woman.
  • Older Than They Look: She's ten thousands of years old and looks like on her fifties at worst.
  • Parents as People: She was very obstinate when asked to give up the mantle of Wonder Woman by her daughter since she enjoyed the freedom and adventure that she experienced and wanted to follow her dreams instead of being tied down as a queen and mother.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Considering she's the same Hippolyta from Greek mythology, then it's no surprise she's been around for a long time.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: She isn't above getting her hands dirty. Even the Queen of Themyscira herself has not been above this sacred duty. Wearing the traditional armor of the Themyscirans, Hippolyta has stepped into the World of Man in the role of 'Suprema' (a role which three of her daughters would go on to fill under the revised title of 'Wonder Woman').
  • She's Got Legs: As the slit on her dress can attest to.
  • Statuesque Stunner: She's just as tall as Diana and taller than Donna.
  • Strong Family Resemblance: Is easy to tell were her daughter Diana got the looks from.

    Jonah Hex

  • Arch-Enemy: Quentin Turnbull was this back in the Wild West, blaming him for the death of his son Jeb Turnbull.

  • Cigar-Fuse Lighting: A favorite trick of Jonah's.

  • The Dreaded: Jonah Hex's reputation is so great that some men believe him to be a supernatural figure, possessing immortality and the ability to cast spells against his enemies.
  • Facial Horror: Jonah has the right side of his face scarred. His adoptive brother Noh-Tante shoved him into a campfire.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He's a decent enough guy when put to the moral test, but his scarring leads to a lot of assumptions from others.
  • Guns Akimbo: Jonah's trademark weapons are his twin massive Colt Dragoons.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Most people knew Hex as caring about nothing except for money, but Greg Saunders claims Hex had a quiet altruistic side that he hid and if folk hadn't treated him like a monster, they would have seen it. Those in the pro-Hex camp are quick to point out that Hex actually supported the abolitionist movement even though he fought for the CSA.
  • Kavorka Man: Jonah is uncouth and gruesomely disfigured, but has maintained relationships with some incredibly gorgeous women: White Fawn, Mei Ling, Tall Bird and Tallulah Black.

  • Two-Faced: Jonah's iconic scars, which hideously mutilate his right cheek, though exactly how badly it does so varies depending on the artist. Exposed teeth and a blind, milky eye are common.

    Desperado (Greg Saunders) 

    Crimson Avenger (Lee Travis) 

    Bulleteer (Alix Harrower) 

    Skyman (Sylvester Pemberton) 

    Sandman (Wesley Dodds)
Click for Civilian Look 

Due to an encounter with the entity known as Dream, Wesley Dodds possessed the power of "prophetic" dreaming. Using a gas mask and a pistol with sleeping gas, Wesley Dodds become the Sandman, a vigilante who makes the criminals fall asleep.

  • Blessed with Suck: His prophetic nightmares.
  • Clairvoyance: When Wesley sleeps, he is imparted with knowledge. This knowledge can change from night to night, or he can be continually imparted with the same knowledge every night for weeks on end. When he awakes, Wesley is able to use this knowledge, often granting him new skills or talents, or otherwise enhancing what skills he already possesses. Many times, this knowledge may just seem to be scattered trivia or otherwise benign information, but Wesley often finds these things to be useless and credits this to the entity known as Dream.
  • Composite Character: Sandman is composite of Wesley Doods, original Sandman and Sandy Hawkins, who's the fourth Sandman in the comics.
  • Cool Car: The Nightmare. Though Judomaster usually is behind the wheel, the Nightmare is a vital part of the Sandman's arsenal. This modified classic muscle car is enhanced with various features to aid Wes and Sonia in their crusade against crime such as the interior of the bumper being lined with barbed spikes that detach with pull of a switch on the dashboard, a fully-loaded communications system, a powerful engine, armored lining, and a gas sprayer. Wesley keeps the car in his basement laboratory and can drive it out the false floor of a garage on the other side of his city block.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Due to an encounter with the entity known as Dream, Wesley Dodds possessed the power of "prophetic" dreaming. His dreams often came to him as cryptic, ambiguous visions, but through esoteric training and Dream's instruction, and Wes' own keen intellect, he has developed a technique which has enabled him to properly interpret them. Through an unknown process, Wes' own father passed on this power to him upon the moment of his own death.
  • Fedora of Asskicking: In his original Gas Mask, Longcoat costume.
  • Fights Like a Normal: Though normally not as well trained as a true disciple of the craft like Dinah Lance or Bruce Wayne, Wesley Dodds is an expert of multiple martial arts. His primary form of combat is an idiosyncratic admixture of Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Muay Thai, and Savate styled Boxing.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: The first installment of the Gift imparted Wesley with a permanent mastery of chemical compounds and a truly in-depth understanding of its applications. He likewise also became able to grasp other related sciences with exceptional proficiency.
  • Gas Mask, Longcoat: The Ur-Example, Wesley Dodds wore a suit and a cape with his custom gas mask rather than a longcoat.
  • Genius Bruiser: Even without his Gift of the Dream, Wesley has an exceptionally potent intellect.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: One day when feelings a surge of mechanical creativity, Wesley fashioned a modified replication of Batman's grapnel gun. Calling his 'the Wirepoon', Wesley has made use of this specially designed weapon which fired a length of thin, steel cable that he used to scale walls and swing between buildings. He also uses it in combat to ensnare enemies and leave them for the police.
  • Heroic Lineage: His family were members of The Society.
  • Heroic Willpower: Due to his psychic nature and likely the influence of his esoteric training, Wesley has unstoppable determination and strength of will which make him an extremely formidable opponent. This makes him able to function while tolerating massive amounts of physical pain, and also allows him to resist telepathy or mind control. His willpower is strong enough to operate a Green Lantern Ring, or so Alan Scott assures us.
  • Living Lie Detector: The Truth Serum. A variant mechanism in the Wirepoon can fire a single barbed projectile which can immobilize its target in seconds with a successful deployment (Wesley usually fires this mode from point-blank range to mitigate chances of wasting this single-shot). Once the compound on this dart takes effect, the target suffers from a severe but temporary paralysis and puts them in a state of confusion that makes them more susceptible to telling the truth without regard to the consequences. Victims will often then fall asleep within a few minutes and awaken with no memory of events two to three hours prior to their dosing.
  • Morality Chain: Wesley admits that Dian is his greatest asset and his greatest weakness. Though she is quite capable in her own right, Wesley fears one day that an enemy of his will try to use her against him by threatening her well-being. For this reason, to mitigate chances of this happenings, Wesley has made Dian an active part of his crusade and trains her to take care of herself. He keeps no secrets from her.
  • Psychic Nosebleed: As a psychic, Wesley suffers from migraines whenever exposed to potent psychic interference. When severe, Wesley may experience hemorrhages of the brain, causing his nose to bleed. Wesley has been render unconscious for days due to some episodes.
  • Science Hero: The first installment of the Gift imparted Wesley with a permanent mastery of chemical compounds and a truly in-depth understanding of its applications. He likewise also became able to grasp other related sciences with exceptional proficiency.

    Judomaster (Sonia Sato)
Click for Civilian Look 

Daughter of the Yoshio Sato, the first Judomaster and second person to don the Judomaster mantle that became skilled in the martial arts, chief among them being judo.

  • Acquired Poison Immunity: Using techniques her father had learned in the League of Assassins, Sonia has exposed herself to all of Sandman's concoctions and by using bio-feedback techniques, has trained her body to develop an immunity to each and every one, allowing her to operate in thick clouds of the toxins without ill-effect. In fact, even if the cloud is so thick to impair visibility, Sonia can just 'flex' her dispersal field and scattered the cloud away from her.
  • Action Girl: Sonia is a highly skilled martial artist.
  • Alliterative Name: Sonia Sato.
  • Badass Driver: Sonia usually drives the Nightmare, Sandman's souped-up armored and weaponized muscle car, and has proven herself an exceptional driver due to her heightened reflexes and steady nerves. Wesley also owns a private collection of many cars, motorbikes, trucks, boats, and aircraft, all of which Sonia has trained on to expert effect.
  • Badass Longcoat: Her black longcoat as Judomaster.
  • The Engineer: Sonia is a truly exceptional automotive mechanic. She claims that her heightened awareness is the reason for this as she has a preternatural ability to understand exactly how things fit together and can 'see' inside the parts without any special instrumentation. Through great focus, she can even use her aura to tighten and loosen bolts with her aura alone, with all the torque of a power tool. She has used this in the past to disable the engine of a moving automobile while is was clinging to its hood, thereby stopping the vehicle and allowing her to beat its occupants into submission.
  • Expy: Judomaster's costume in Earth 27 is based of Kato from Green Hornet.
  • Irrational Hatred: Sonia hates the League of Assassins with a blinding rage. She acknowledges that she is emotionally compromised when it comes to matters dealing with them and prone to flying off the handle when confronted by them unexpectedly, particularly if she were to encounter the Swiss, Bane, or Ra's al Ghul himself. She even once put a kunai in the shoulder of Red Hood just for admitting his past as the assassin Dumas. Babs fears what she may do if she learned of others' past involvement with the League of Assassins.
  • Legacy Character: Sonia adopted the Judomaster identity to repent for her father’s past deeds and has since been on the run from the Blood Soldiers.
  • Multi-Melee Master: Sonia is an expert in nearly all forms of close-quarters weaponry, as well as most firearms. Her preferred weapons are a pair of sai and multiple kunai which she keeps on her person as Judomaster.
  • Sensory Overload: As her psychic power is rather limited and defined, Sonia does not suffer from intense migraines as often as more powerful psychics might, but she does still run the risk of becoming disabled or impaired if she is especially stressed or unable to regularly take her medication.
