The League of Freedom

    Titanium Rex 

Titanium Rex

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/supermansion1_1_600x887.jpg
Voiced by: Bryan Cranston

The elderly, beleaguered leader of the team. Tries to keep them financially above water, while dealing with their general idiocy.


  • Badass Grandpa: Despite losing a step or two with age, he's still a Flying Brick capable of beating most villains up.
  • The Casanova: Rex really gets around. He's slept with the wives of American Ranger, Dr Devizo and Dr Gizmo, the latter on the Moon, and apparently had forty years of regular hook ups with his arch enemy Frau Mantis. It's also implied that he's slept with so many other women that he can't remember them all.
  • Clark Kenting: Back when he had his Gurman identity, his disguise primarily consisted of glasses and a rhinestone glove to cover his gauntlet, which he lampshades as a testament to human stupidity in how effective it was.
  • Fatal Flaw: He's incredibly promiscuous. A lot of problems he faces are the results of him sleeping with the wrong person.
  • A Father to His Men: He tries to act as a role model to the others. When faced with the choice of firing Saturn, he refused to do so even when he fully acknowledges his uselessness.
    • Zigzagged, however, as he appearently never bothered to bring Ranger up to date over the decades he missed out on, and apparently views Jewbot and Cooch as his property, rather than his teammates
  • Flying Brick: As befitting a Superman Substitute.
  • His Name Really Is "Barkeep": Titanium Rex is his actual Subtopian birth name.
  • The Leader: Has been the head of the team since he emerged from Subtopia.
  • Long-Lived: In their natural environment Subtopian longevity is fortified by their proximity to the magnetic forces of Earth's core. On the surface Rex's aging process turns out to be drastically accelerated, to the point that Subtopians hardly know what aging is.
  • Porn Stache: Had one during the League's "Disco Era".
  • Old Superhero: He's way past the hill.
  • Only Sane Man: Not consistently, but he's the most solid tether to reality the team has.
  • Secret Identity: Back in the 70s he had one in the form of Mel Gurman, a famous photographer known for his affairs with his models (one of which is Saturn's mom). He eventually killed off the identity due to being sickened with the deviancy of Gurman.
  • Superman Substitute: He's a clear Superman parody, with the only difference being the metal fist and the fact that he comes from below the Earth rather than from outer space.

    Black Saturn 

Black Saturn

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sm_black_saturn_v1_0_sm.jpg
Voiced by: Tucker Gilmore

A rich, spoiled idiot and general loser of the team. His only power is the money he gets from his parents.


  • Bi the Way: When he finds out Lex is a gender-shifter, he's initially weirded out. After a short time to process, he's actually proud he nailed a dude. And he also made out with the Groaner once at a party
  • Batman Parody: He's essentially Batman if he lacked any skill or competence as well as not being independently wealthy.
  • Crimefighting with Cash: A parody; he relies on his parents' handouts as his source of money.
  • Foe Yay: With his purported archenemy Groaner; he's aroused by the electric torture he carries out and in a Bad Future is heavily implied to be married to him.
  • Dating Catwoman: Tries to invoke this with a Catwoman expy but is too emotionally needy and sexually unsatisfying for her to want to maintain a relationship.
  • Deadly Disc: His Rings Of Saturn. Which are more monogrammed Frisbees than anything.
  • Irony: Desperately wants to be the brooding, dark superhero. Despite being prone to more emotional outbursts than a teenage girl.
  • The Load: He is easily the most worthless and incompetent of the team and consistently causes far more trouble than anything. Rex is even encouraged by a future version of Saturn to boot him off the team.
  • Manchild: Has all the mental maturity of a teenager, despite being at least past the age for attending college.
  • Miles Gloriosus: In line with the above he constantly boasts of his skill and willingness to confront villains but is largely pathetic against real threats.
  • Rich Idiot With No Dayjob: Has never held an actual job in his life, and does the superhero thing solely cause it keeps him away from one.

    Cooch 

Cooch

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/23b4d271db4a2c6a2bb248f94769de66.jpg
Voiced by: Heidi Gardner

A house-cat, evolved into a humanoid cat person by an evolution ray. Acts like you'd expect a cat to: Dismissive, impulsive and easily distracted.


    Brad 

Brad

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sm_brad_v1_b_sm.jpg
Voiced by: Tom Root

Once a regular junkie, turned into a super-strong one when he received a potent Super Soldier type serum. Reluctantly shanghaied into joining the team, he balances out his hero duties with getting a fix.


  • Aerith and Bob: His name is pretty standard next to the rest of the team.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: His unusual pink skin-tone is remarked upon several times.
  • Bi the Way: Makes frequent hints that he'd be willing to sleep with his male teammates. Tends to zigzag as to whether he is legitimately bisexual, or whether he is simply used to trading sexual favours in exchage for drugs.
  • The Big Guy: Fills out the role of the hulking, muscle guy on the team.
  • Erudite Stoner: Brad can be highly philosophical, so long as he's sufficiently blazed.
  • Expy: To the Hulk being a very large super strong guy with an unusual skin color.
  • Fatal Flaw: His addictive personality. Brad would likely be a highly effective and professional superhero if it wasn't for the fact he can barely function without drugs.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrifices himself in the final episode of season 1 to stop Devizo.
  • Immune to Drugs: Brad has a super-human (Even before the serum) tolerance to drugs. It takes something really potent to send him off into highness.

    Robobot/Jewbot 

Robobot/Jewbot

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sm_robobot_v1_0_sm.jpg
Voiced by: Zeb Wells

Team robot/brains. Has an existential crisis in the first episode, and proceeds to explore his humanity. Adopting the religion of his creator in the process.


  • Creator Cameo: Zeb Wells also co-created the show.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Being am emotionless robot, pretty much all his jokes comes off as this.
  • Department of Redundancy Department: "Robo" and "bot" are both short for "robot".
  • Do-Anything Robot: He is built with a bunch of gadgets and is competent enough to fulfill just about any job needed of him.
  • Expy: To robot superheroes like the Vision and Red Tornado who want to understand what it's like to be human.
  • Flawed Prototype: Even though he functions well as a superhero, he's technically this. He was designed to be a robot soldier with only enough empathy in order to distinguish between friend and foe. Unfortunately for the project directors, Robobot's empathy chip performs a little too well and he refuses to outright kill his targets (when first activated and being shot at by a mannequin with a machine gun, his first reaction was to try acting like a counselor and then hug the thing). The project was scrapped and Agony tricked Rex into "accepting" Robobot as a superhero for the league.
  • Informed Judaism: Even Jewbot himself kind of forgets the whole Jewish thing after a while. Eventually, he drops the whole thing completely and goes back to being just Robobot
  • Not So Stoic: While his voice tends to be mostly monotone, sometimes his real emotions will shine through.
  • Religious Robot: He adopts Judaism after learning his creator's name was Goldstein out of a desire to become more human. He eventually drops it after learning that she's actually a Scientologist.
  • Robot Buddy: To whoever likes him the most that episode.
  • The Smart Guy: A super smart (But sometimes naive) member of the team.

    American Ranger 

American Ranger

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sm_american_ranger_v1_0_sm.jpg

Vet of WW2, and former second-in-command of the team. Recently released from a "Time Tunnel" (What he calls the stasis chamber he was in) he finds himself trying to adjust to the bizarre new time period he's awoken in.


  • Captain Patriotic: He is a parody of nation-inspired superheroes and takes Eagleland a bit too far at times.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: Some of the things he and Kid Victory did during the war count as war crimes today. He's keen that no one finds out about them.
  • Deliberate Values Dissonance: Ranger is a product of him time. A mildly sexist, slightly racist, all the way homophobic product of his time.
  • Expy: To Captain America, being a patriotic themed hero who fought in WW2 and who then spent the next seventy years in stasis.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Never totally grows out of it, but is shown acclimating however slowly to modern society.
  • The Lancer: Despite his dated world views, he's still Rex's dependable #2.
  • Politically Incorrect Hero: His main trait is that due to being severely out of touch with modern values, he is bigoted towards minorities and women, though never maliciously so.

    Lex Lightning 

Lex Lightning

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_lexlightning.jpg
Voiced by: Jillian Bell

The bastard spawn of Titanium Rex. Arrives at the mansion, hoping to bond with her pops and join the team.


    Zenith 

Portia Jones/Zenith

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rsz_1887_sm202_005_1024x576.jpg
Voiced by: Yvette Nicole Brown

Ex-member of the team, brought back in after the death of Brad and betrayal of Lex. Portia becomes the bombastic Zenith when she wears a mystical piece of jewelry.


  • Expy: Surprisingly not to Wonder Woman but rather to Captain Marvel but with a hint of Thor . Zenith describes herself as a goddess who is "Thunderbound" to the mortal Portia Jones, somewhat like Captain Marvel and Billy Batson, but she regards herself as a completely different person, somewhat like Thor did when he shared his existence with Dr Donald Blake, though she does share Wonder Woman's origin of being from an all female utopia.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: Her civilian identity is an Oprah parody, complete with giving her audience random gifts.
  • Older Than They Look: Portia has barely aged a day since her League time in The Disco Era.
  • Power Echoes: Zenith has an echoy effect to her voice.
  • Put on a Bus: After almost destroying the world, Zenith is confined to her realm, meaning Portia can't transform. At the end of Season 2, she leaves the mansion for good.
  • Sixth Ranger: To the effect she fills two vacancies left by Brad and Lex.

The Injustice Club

    Doctor Devizo 

Doctor Devizo

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dr_devizo.png
Voiced by: Chris Pine

Criminal mastermind. Has never met a prison he can't escape, and proves to be a major thorn in the Leagues side.


  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Inexplicably has blue-green skin and similarly colored hair.
  • Big Bad: Though he only comes along in the final episodes of season 1, he quickly becomes this.
  • Cardboard Prison: No prison has ever held him for more than a year. The Leagues holding cells fare no better.
  • Composite Character: He's a combination of The Joker (physical appearance and voice) and Lex Luthor (super-genius nemesis to the Superman equivalent).
  • Evil Former Friend: He actually used to be in the League of Freedom, serving as an inventor and scientist, and was a close personal friend of Rex until Rex slept with Devzo's wife. She divorced him and he became a supervillain out of grief.
  • The Chessmaster: His only real power is his super intellect. And it's doubly effective, considering the League is 90% composed of idiots.
  • Near-Villain Victory: He nearly nukes the entire world in the season 1 finale. He's undone by the long timers for everything to work.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: As seen to the left.

    The Groaner 

The Groaner

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/supermansion_1_3.png
Voiced by: Zeb Wells

Joker to Black Saturn's Batman. A skull-headed clown, who revels in terrible puns.


  • Affably Evil: He's actually leagues nicer than so-called hero Black Saturn.
  • Enemy Mine: Willing joined Brad and Cooch to raid Opto Corp due to them being responsible for his skull-headed disfigurement.
  • Daylight Horror: Although admittedly a low-level criminal, the Groaner is still met with relative indifference by the public, freely going shopping and ordering food at resteraunts without causing a panic, despite his having a skull for a face. Lampshaded in one episode, where he has to barge his way through a crowd of people, and says that his Skeletal face SHOULD mean that people should just know to get out of his way.
  • Fingore: Black Saturn cuts off one of his fingers during season 1.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: His entire shtick.
  • Skull for a Head: Due to a chemical accident at his last show as a normal party clown.
  • Start of Darkness: Was once just a normal party clown specializing in prop comedy. When performing for a business function at Opto Corp, an accident rendered him the skull-headed villain we know today. Details are sketchy because Brad and Cooch didn't care to listen to his backstory.
  • Villainous Harlequin: He's a clown-themed villain whose crimes for the most part are relatively low-level.
