The Green Lantern Corps

    Katma Tui 

Katma Tui
Voiced by: Kim Mai Guest

Katma Tui was a Green Lantern, and trainer of new recruits to the Corps. She had a brief, romantic relationship with John Stewart.

  • Costume Evolution: In Unlimited, she took to wearing a custom uniform after her earlier appearances featured her wearing the same GL uniform John wears.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Orange-skinned.
  • Interspecies Romance: She (a Korugarian) had a brief romance with John (a human).
  • Mentor: To most of the other Green Lanterns. John Stewart even compares her to Yoda at one point.
  • Ms. Fanservice: In her first appearance, she wears a regular Green Lantern uniform. When she reappears in "The Return", she is wearing a sexier, customized version of the outfit. And in "Hearts and Minds", she dons a rather Stripperific "priestess" outfit.
  • Sexy Mentor: To John Stewart.
  • Ship Sinking: In the source material, she and John were officially together, but here, it was a brief fling and John ends up pursuing other women, particularly Shayera at the time.
  • Shout-Out: Her "priestess" outfit is basically the infamous slave Leia costume in everything but name.
  • Stern Teacher: She is not particularly warm or kind when training her students.
  • Teacher/Student Romance: It is all but said out loud that she had one with John while training him as a Green Lantern.


Voiced by: Dennis Haysbert (all other appearances), Kevin Michael Richardson (Justice League Vs. The Fatal Five)

Kilowog was a member of the Green Lantern Corps.

  • Costume Evolution: In Superman: TAS and Justice League, he wore the same uniform as Kyle and John did in those series. During his brief appearance in Unlimited, he took to wearing an armored costume, and in Vs. The Fatal Five, he's wearing his Green Lantern: The Animated Series costume.
  • The Engineer: His other skill outside of his Green Lantern powers. In "Hearts and Minds", he is able to rapidly construct a carbon bomb with relative ease.
  • Extreme Omnivore: At one point, he eats a videotape, proclaiming it to be delicious.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: He is badly impaled by the Emerald Empress during his fight with Validus. Fortunately, none of his vital organs were hurt and he survived, according to Word of God.
  • Mythology Gag: His redesign in Vs. The Fatal Five is based off of his design in Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Kevin Michael Richardson even reprises the role.
  • Odd Friendship: With Flash. They bond over their mutual friendship with John Stewart, their wise-cracking personalities, and their love of food.
  • Pig Man: This makes Flash inviting him to a bratwurst cookout all the more hilarious.
  • Redemption Earns Life: Notably in "Blackest Night", he was the only member of the Green Lantern Corps to speak up for and defend John Stewart's character during his trial (albeit after some convincing from Hawkgirl). Later in "Hearts and Minds", several of his colleagues are killed in battle while he is spared and would go on to become a semi-regular Recurring Character.

Other Heroes

    Captain Marvel 

Captain Marvel (Billy Batson)
Voiced by: Jerry O'Connell (Marvel), Shane Haboucha (Billy)
Appearances: Justice League Unlimited | Justice League vs. The Fatal Fivenote 

Captain Marvel was a superhero who protected Fawcett City, and a former member of the Justice League.

  • Ascended Fanboy: He openly admits to idolizing the Justice Leaguers (especially Superman) before briefly joining himself.
  • Broken Pedestal: Superman's paranoid behavior during Marvel's time on the Justice League makes him lose a lot of respect for someone that he once idolized.
  • The Cameo: In Justice League vs. The Fatal Five, a statue of him appears in the superhero museum in the 31st century.
  • The Cape: Is arguably an even bigger archetype of this trope than Superman himself, much to the latter's annoyance.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: He truly believed Lex Luthor has turned over a new leaf. One can only wonder how Captain Marvel responded when it's revealed that Lex really didn't.
  • Manchild: He comes off like this towards the rest of the League sometimes (who are unaware that his secret identity is a child).
  • Nice Guy: His cheerful and positive attitude rubs off so warmly on the Justice League that even Batman takes a liking to him.
  • Older Alter Ego: Billy and Marvel.
  • The Pollyanna: Has a rather sunny and optimistic approach to being a superhero.
  • Shock and Awe: He can use the magical lightning he uses to transform himself between Marvel and Billy as a weapon, like when he held down Superman so he could be struck by it.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Of a Batman Gambit that Lex Luthor and Cadmus performed on Superman to make him look bad in public.
  • Wide-Eyed Idealist: He's far far towards the ideal end of the Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism. Justified since he is actually only a young child beneath his superhero exterior.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Delivers a fairly brutal one towards Superman after the latter destroyed Lexor City during their fight. He also announces his resignation from the Justice League in the same speech. Superman is crushed.


Hawkman (Carter Hall)
Voiced by: James Remar
Appearances: Justice League Unlimited

"My real name is Katar Hol. But you can call me... Hawkman."

Hawkman, also known as the archaeologist Carter Hall, is a man who claims that he is the reincarnation of an ancient Thanagarian who became emperor of Egypt and that Shayera's past life was his lover. Well intentioned, but a bit creepy given his obsessive attitude. He dons a pair of artificial wings and Thanagarian battle armor, apparently fighting crime.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: The comic version of Hawkman is an extremely aggressive, bloodthirsty brute of a man, though still heroic. This version is quite mellow and friendly.
  • Adventure Archaeologist: His day job is exploring old tombs and evading traps.
  • Ancient Astronauts: His past life landed in Egypt, taught them agriculture and started conquering the nearby lands to bring civilization. Without them, Earth probably would not be as advanced as it is today.
  • Badass Bookworm: He's just an archaeologist, but when he touches the Absorbicron he decides he's the reincarnation of a Thanagarian, builds some artificial wings for himself and begins fighting crime. He even seems to be pretty good at it, capturing a magician who was giving John trouble.
  • The Cloud Cuckoolander Was Right: It is mentioned that he lost much of his credibility in the archaeology field when he began proclaiming his Thanagarian Ancient Astronauts theory and even Hawkgirl thinks he is delusional when he insists that they are the reincarnations of the ancient Thanagarians. Then in "Ancient History", the Shadow Thief reveals that his claims were right all along.
  • Composite Character: Katar Hol, the Silver Age Hawkman, is Carter's past life, which would be Ret-Canon to indeed be the case in 2018. The Shadow Thief is also his dark side split off.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Subverted. When Shadow Thief tells him to kill his rival Green Lantern, it looks as though he's going to do it. However, Carter simply uses the axe he was given to free John from his restraints.
  • Decomposite Character: Turns out he is not Shayera's destined lover reincarnated, GL is. Shayera and Hawkman were married in a previous life and were fond of eachother, but Shayera's true (and secret) love was John (who was also Hawkman's best friend, ouch).
  • Driven to Suicide: When Katar Hol realized his advisor has poisoned Past Shayera and John, he committed suicide himself out of grief.
  • Flight: He wears a pair of artificial wings strapped to his chest that allow him to fly.
  • I Want My Beloved to Be Happy: After discovering the true history between Katar Hol, Chay-Ara Hol, and Bashari, he quickly apologizes to Shayera and leaves, realizing that she is destined to be together with Green Lantern.
  • Meaningful Rename: He used to be a man named Joseph Gardner, but when an ancient ship's log showed him his past lives he legally changed his name to Carter Hall, which sounds almost the same as Katar Hol.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's buff as hell and wears tights. Shirts? Never heard of 'em.
  • Nice Guy: He may be a stalker, but he actually is a good guy and genuinely heroic.
  • Reincarnation: He's probably the reincarnation of an ancient Thananagarian police officer.
  • Romantic Runner-Up: A nice guy, but Shayera is also interested in John Stewart. When he learns how the relationship of their past lives ended, he leaves peacefully, telling her he has no intention of getting in their way.
  • Reincarnation Romance: Subverted. It's strongly implied that he's right about his past life with Shayera, but the relationship had already fallen apart due to Katar Hol's refusal for intimacy.
  • Ret-Canon: The idea of Katar being among Carter's past lives would be imported to comics canon in the 2018 Hawkman series.
  • Stalking Is Love: Though he tends to creep some people out, he genuinely loves Shayera and wants what is best for her. When he realizes he's making her uncomfortable he gracefully backs off until she feels she's ready. When it becomes clear she never will be, he gives up. For her part, she ignores that he's an obvious stalker until he starts babbling about reincarnation and seems to think he's at least somewhat attractive.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Just like in the comics.
  • Winged Humanoid: With a pair of artificially constructed wings.


Deadman (Boston Brand)
Voiced by: Raphael Sbarge
Appearances: Justice League Unlimited

"When I'm working, people call me 'Deadman'."

Deadman, real name Boston Brand, was a wandering spirit.

  • Demonic Possession: Deadman is capable of possessing any mortal being; upon which he could completely control their actions and be in possession of their memories and powers, while they retain no recollection of the happening.
  • Did I Say That Out Loud: In the tie-in comics, when he possesses Wonder Woman again at one point, he comments out loud that he looks hot as Wonder Woman. To everyone else, it looks like Diana is the one who's saying it. He realizes this right afterwards.
  • Hollywood New England: Well, his name is Boston and he certainly sports the accent.
  • Intangibility: As a ghost, Deadman can also pass through physical objects.
  • Invisible to Normals: He cannot be visibly perceived by other human beings.
  • Meaningful Name: As a ghost, you don't get any more meaningful than "Deadman".
  • My God, What Have I Done?: When Devil Ray attempts to shoot Wonder Woman, he quickly possesses Batman, picks up a gun, and shoots Devil Ray, accidentally knocking the latter into electrical wires and killing him. This action is rather traumatic for both him and Batman.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: After the Legion destroys the Buddhist Temple he was training at and kills the Master.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: His memory of his Master's teachings convince him to spare Devil Ray's life. He later unintentionally does it anyway.
  • You Killed My Father: His motivation for getting revenge on the Legion of Doom and Devil Ray specifically.


Huntress (Helena Bertinelli)
Voiced by: Amy Acker
Abilities: martial artist, crossbow

Formerly the sheltered daughter of a mob boss, she became a vigilante in response to his betrayal and murder. She was inducted along with all the other heroes in the first episode of Unlimited, but after she violated the League's rule about attempting to murder villains, she became a Sixth Ranger who helped out her friends in the League.

  • Adaptation Origin Connection: Inverted. She has no connection to Batman or the Batfamily other than the Mythology Gags towards her and Black Canary being members of the Birds of Prey. J'onn is the one who tells her off for attempting to kill a criminal, whereas Batman would've been the one doing it in the source material. It's mentioned in the Batman: The Adventures Continue comic that Batman doesn't like her either for her trigger-happy methods.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: While still an Anti-Hero, she's more heroic here than in the comics, especially after she resolves her issues with Mandragora.
  • All Women Are Lustful: She almost always interacts with the Question in a very suggestive way, and some of those interactions tend to imply sexual fantasies.
  • Anti-Hero: A little too 'anti' for the League, especially since her first major appearance involves her trying to murder Mandragora while sleeping in his home. She's half Type III, half Type V.
  • Automatic Crossbows: She carried an automatic miniature crossbow that she wielded with incredible ease and accuracy, as well as a retractable bo staff and other equipment used to bypass security measures.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: In Season 2 Issue 3 of Batman: The Adventures Continue, Batgirl can't sway Huntress from trying to kill Jazzman, but at least convinces her to let her turn him in first so that Batman can use him as a clue in his investigation on Black Mask. Afterwards, she enters his jail cell disguised as a police officer and kills him.
  • Badass Biker: Her preferred method of transportation.
  • Badass Normal: She is a world class athlete, gymnast and martial artist, capable of disarming and defeating multiple armed opponents (however, she was slightly less skilled than Black Canary).
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her costume shows off her stomach.
  • Battle Couple: With the Question. They casually discuss dating plans while kicking butt.
  • Blood Knight: After helping Black Canary shut down Roulette's underground metahuman brawl operation, she goads the former into going a few rounds in the cage themselves, to see who's the better fighter.
  • The Cameo: In Justice League vs. The Fatal Five, a statue of her appears in the superhero museum in the 31st century.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Helena Bertinelli was the daughter of Mafia crime boss and mobster Franco Bertinelli. As a child, she saw her mother and father murdered by Steven Mandragora, who lusted for power. This event sparked her desire for revenge as, years later in her adult life, she would train herself to become the costumed vigilante known as the Huntress.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Her vigilante costume is mostly black and purple and while she's an Anti-Hero, she's still on the side of good.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Constantly makes snide and sarcastic remarks even on the people she works with, or otherwise needs the help of.
  • Early Installment Character Design Difference: In earlier episodes when she was just The Cameo, her design was different (ex. white eyes instead of showing her eyes).
  • Fire-Forged Friends: With Black Canary. The two initially butt heads and view each other as obstacles, but they seem to hang out together after the Mandragora case. Although they spend that time insulting each other, Huntress shows concern when Canary seems to be troubled by personal issues (and the Question lampshades how she seems concerned about her rival despite the two appearing to despise each other) and tries to help her. After Huntress helps Canary break out of Roulette's mind control, the two share a genuine moment before going back to insulting each other and sparring for fun.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: A trait she shares with the Question. She has a considerably poor reputation among members of the League with the last straw involving Mandragora resulting in her membership being revoked. Even Black Canary, probably her closest friend besides the Question, mainly gets into physical fights along side her.
  • I Work Alone: She accepts this mentality after being kicked out of the League, turning down Dinah's offer to appeal to the League to reinstate her.
  • Leotard of Power: With a great big cut-out in the torso because apparently the regular kind wasn't sexy enough.
  • Lonely Together: Implied to be the bedrock of her relationship with the Question. He was the only one who tried to help her resolve her personal vendettas and actually treats her respectfully, mainly because he's also seen as a crazed loner Anti-Hero who doesn't play nice with other members of the League.
  • Mafia Princess: Was one of these — and did not know. She finds out the hard way.
  • Most Common Super Power: She has a very large bust.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Huntress is a very beautiful woman who wears a costume that highlights her figure. She doesn't get the amount of in-universe attention that Wonder Woman or Black Canary do, but the camera does develop Male Gaze when she's in an episode.
  • Mythology Gag: The Birds of Prey don't exist in the DCAU and neither does her connection to Batman, though she still has her Fire-Forged Friendship with Black Canary and butts head with Batgirl in the Batman: The Adventures Continue comic.
  • Official Couple: Huntress and Question became lovers, and also an unofficial team.
  • She-Fu: Well, she is a world-class gymnast.
  • Strong Girl, Smart Guy: With the Question, as she acts as the muscle while he mainly does detective work.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Tried to avert this, which is why J'onn kicks her out of the League.
  • Tsundere: Towards the Question. Between snarking at his sleuthing tendencies, she's also kindly to him in tender moments, even calling him "Baby".
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Huntress is this for Question. If he's working at a console, you can expect her brutally beating guards into unconsciousness in his defense. When the Question was tortured by Cadmus, she nearly outright murdered his torturer until she was recalled by Superman.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Originally, she regarded Black Canary as an interfering obstacle; after Canary helped with the Mandragora capture, they reached a rapport.

    The Justice Guild of America

Appearances: Justice League

A group of heroes from a comic that turned out to be based on real-life events in another universe.

    The Flash I (Jay Garrick) 

The Flash (Jay Garrick)

The first Flash. Appears only in the tie-in comics and the Justice League Beyond comic.

  • Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: He joined the Speed Force with Wally and Bart sometime after Justice League Unlimited.
  • The Cameo: His helmet can be seen at the Flash museum in "Flash and Substance".
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Downplayed. When he is invited to an elementary school as a guest, a disrespectful bratty boy dismisses him as less than the "real" Flash (Wally) and wants to see that one. During the events of the story, Jay gets called away to help the League when Wally gets incapacitated, and the story ends with the "real" Flash lecturing the boy about respecting Jay.
  • The Mentor: To some extent to Wally.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: As the tie-in comics and the Batman Beyond continuation comic are dubiously canon, it's not clear if he really does exist in the DCAU or not. However, his helmet is seen on display at the Flash museum in "Flash and Substance", so it can be assumed that he does exist.

    King Faraday 

Agent King Faraday

Voiced by: Scott Patterson

A federal agent who often assists the Justice League. He was assigned to provide protection to mob boss Steven Mandragora, who supposedly wanted to leave organized crime, until it was revealed that he was simply biding time to secure to safe passage of his son into the United States. By the final season, he's made an official liaison of the Justice League to the US.

  • Expy: Fills a very similar role to Steve Trevor in the comics.
  • Friend on the Force: Given how government workers and agents are usually distrustful of the League, it's refreshing to see that he has little problem with them. So long as they don't do what like. Like hitting mob bosses under witness protection, for example.
  • Punny Name: King Faraday is a play on "king for a day". Of course, he gets to keep that name forever.
  • Shout-Out: Uses the line, "goldbricking yahoos" in "To Another Shore", which is a Nick Fury turn of phrase.
  • Why Do You Keep Changing Jobs?: Good luck nailing down what agency he works for. He switches from witness protection (US Marshals) to bodyguarding the Vice President (Secret Service) when not being the JLA's liaison. To be fair, this is a quirk of government agencies in the comics, like APES and the CBI.

    Linda Park 

Linda Park
Voiced by: Kim Mai Guest

A reporter in Central City.

  • Adaptation Personality Change: In the comics, Linda was more serious in contrast to Wally's goofiness and actually didn't particularly like him as the Flash when they first met. Here, she's a fan of him, and ironically, Flash is initially oblivious to her advances due to focusing on a mission.
  • First Girl Wins: As far as we know, she's the Flash's first real romance and claims this to Giganta, who's been trying to date Flash ever since the ending of Unlimited. Between the two girls, Flash sticks with Linda.
  • Is This Thing Still On?: Thinking that the camera is off, she talks to her camerawoman about how Flash is "like, the entire track team at once". Only after she says that does her camerawoman tell her that the camera was still running, causing her to facepalm in embarrassment.
  • Two-Person Love Triangle: According to the Red Justice young reader's book, Wally tried dating her, but she broke up with him when she thought that he wasn't committal.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: She brings a pocket mirror to the Flash Museum so she can check her makeup. She wasn't counting on Mirror Master and the other Flash rogues to use it to get the drop on everyone through it.

    Snapper Carr

A news reporter that always appears during one of the Justice League's major battles.

  • Intrepid Reporter: He's been reporting dangers up close and personal ever since the Imperium invasion.
  • Only Sane Man: In "A Better World", outside of Lois, Snapper does not speak about or visibly support the Justice League's {Justice Lords) actions on Doomsday, implying that he's aware that something is wrong.

    Steve Trevor 

Steve Trevor

Voiced by: Patrick Duffy
Appearances: Justice League

An American spy stationed in Europe during World War II. When the Justice League went back in time to stop Vandal Savage and change back the course of history, Wonder Woman rescued him from a plummeting plane.

    Tracy Simmons 

Dr. Tracy Simmons

Voiced by: Lori Loughlin

A physicist for S.T.A.R. Labs.



Voiced by: Tracey Walter
Appearances: Justice League

A strange old man guarding a mysterious crystal known as the Heart of Darkness, an Ophidian artifact.


Queen Hippolyta of Themyscira

Voiced by: Susan Sullivan

The Queen of the Amazons and the ruler of Themyscira, as well as the mother of Princess Diana of Themyscira, AKA, Wonder Woman.

  • Lawful Stupid: At the end of "Paradise Lost," though Diana only did so in order to save the Amazons from Faust and Hades, Hippolyta, though not happy about it, abides by the laws of Themyscira and exiles her for bringing the male members of the Justice League to the island. By the time of "The Balance," she changes her mind and lifts it.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: The Amazons' heavy matriarchal emphasis results in Aresia wildly taking it as men being a pest that must be destroyed, which could have been prevented if Hippolyta had told her that a man gave up his life to save her and bring her to Themyscira, which she refrained because she didn't think it mattered. By the time Hippolyta tells Aresia this, Aresia has gone too far to care about it anymore. Hippolyta realizes her mistake.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Best shown in the "Fury" two-parter. Aresia, the Villain of the Week, was induced into the Amazons and trained in their code after her homeland was not only ravaged by male soldiers, but the ship she was on was attacked and sank by male pirates. Her life was saved by a male captain, and he got her to Themyscira before dying; while Hippolyta gave him a proper burial and took her in, she withheld his role in Aresia's survival because she felt he wasn't important. Over the years, Aresia's hatred of men festers to the point she attempts Gendercide, and only then does Hippolyta reveal this information; by that point, Aresia's beyond caring, reasoning that one man's act of kindness doesn't change anything, and continues with her plan.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!/Screw the Rules, I Make Them!: She's forced to exile her daughter for bringing men to the island, despite their help, by the Gods' decree. But at the end of "The Balance", she missed her daughter so much that she decided to lift the exile after Diana and Shayera restored balance. She's ready to face any consequence for doing so.


Princess/Queen Audrey of Kaznia

Voiced by: Dorie Barton
Appearances: Justice League

The princess (later, queen) of Kaznia and the daughter of King Gustav.

  • Hard-Drinking Party Girl: Spends a lot of her debut as this as her final "bang" before she gets married and becomes queen.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother presumably passed away sometime ago, as she's not mentioned.

    General Wells 

General Wells

Appearances: Justice League

A US Army General that serves as a foil to the Justice League in regards to extraterrestrial matters big enough to involve the government. While not fully antagonistic as other generals on the show, he is very concerned about relying too much on Superman or the Justice League. His cynicism often clashes with the League but he’s proven right more than once.

  • Bald Black Leader Guy: He's a bald black general.
  • The Brigadier: Serves as this for the first two seasons before Cadmus comes into focus.
  • Cassandra Truth: In both of his major appearances, he warns against putting too much trust in Superman’s ability to save the world unilaterally and the good intentions of the Thanagarians though his superiors ignore his advice. He’s proven right both times.
  • Expy: Fills the role of the military leader that distrusts the heroes, not unlike General Hardcastle in Superman: The Animated Series and later Eilling in subsequent seasons though Wells never reaches the level of antagonism that either adopt towards the League.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: He criticizes the idea of having Superman deweaponize the world’s militaries, noting they’re putting too much faith in his ability to unilaterally stop global threats. He’s immediately proven right when the world is dangerously ill-prepared for the Imperium invasion.
  • Properly Paranoid: He explicitly states he doesn’t believe the Thanagarians have Earth’s best interests at heart. When they turn on the Justice League, he isn’t even surprised.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: It’s his speech post-Imperium invasion that convinces Batman to build the Watchtower and provide the impetus for the Justice League to form.
  • Whatever Happened to the Mouse?: He’s never seen again following the Thanagarian invasion, his role on the show being filled by General Eilling and Cadmus in following seasons.
