The Justice Society of America

A precursor to the modern Justice League. While most have only appeared in flashbacks, a few show up in the present day.
    Doctor Fate (Kent Nelson) 

Doctor Fate (Kent Nelson)

Species: Human

Voiced by: Edward Asner


  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: He'll remain within Fate's mask until a proper replacement for him is found. Though as of "Misplaced", Nabu has released him to the afterlife.
  • Cool Helmet: It's the source of his powers.
  • Cool Old Guy: Defiantly snarks at his supervillain captors (one of whom is an uber-powerful Lord of Chaos), takes dying in his stride, speaks out against Nabu seizing bodies to use, and gives Wally some very solid relationship advice.
  • Death by Adaptation: Bites the big one in his debut episode.
  • Old Superhero: He's well past his prime. It's noted that he's 106 years old.
  • Order Versus Chaos: The good doctor works for the Lords of Order.
  • Shipper on Deck: He seems to think Wally and Artemis would make a great couple. Turns out he's right on the money.
  • Slap-Slap-Kiss: The sort of relationship he evidently shared with his dearly departed wife, and, from how he speaks of her, he wouldn't have had it any other way.
    Kent: [to Kid Flash] Find your own little spitfire; one who won't let you get away with nothin'!
  • Voice of the Legion: Nabu, while possessing a living body.

    The Flash I (Jay Garrick) 

The Flash I (Jay Garrick)

Species: Metahuman

Voiced by: Geoff Pierson


  • Cool Old Guy:
  • Happily Married: Jay and his wife Joan have been together for decades, and she still dotes on him. Her death in season 3 shakes him up pretty badly.
  • Long-Lived: In season 3 he's a century old.
  • Mandatory Unretirement: Despite his advanced age, he's seen in costume among the assembled heroes in "Endgame." The fate of the world is at stake, after all.
  • Old Superhero: The original Flash, retired.
  • Promotion to Parent: For Impulse.
    Impulse: 'You must be the Garricks. That makes you, like, my honorary great-grandparents!' cue hug
  • Super Speed: Has the power to run at superhuman speeds.

    Green Lantern (Alan Scott) 

Green Lantern (Alan Scott)

Species: Human


  • Adaptational Origin Connection: According to Greg, he gets his powers from a GL Corps ring he discovered. This isn't the case in the comics, which generally have had to invent madly to explain why his codename is coincidentally the same as the later Hal Jordan's.
  • Imagination-Based Superpower: His ring allows him to generate anything he wants out of light.

    Wildcat (Ted Grant) 

Wildcat (Ted Grant)

Species: Human


  • Badass Normal: He has no powers other than a strong right hook.
  • The Cameo: Appeared briefly in #11 of the tie in comic at Kent Nelson's funeral.

    The Sandman (Wesley Dodds) 

The Sandman (Wesley Dodds)

Species: Human

Atlantis

    Queen Mera 

Queen Mera

Species: Atlantean

Voiced by: Kath Soucie


  • Elemental Powers: Mera has the power to generate electricity from the eel tattoos on her arms or manipulate water to serve any number of uses: water blasts, whips, waves, shields, or water spouts to lift her off the ocean floor.

    Topo 

Topo

Species: Atlantean

Voiced by: James Arnold Taylor


  • Fantastic Racism: The victim of it in the tie-in comic. He's referred to as a "fish head" by the Atlantean purists...
  • Mark of Shame: ... who then brand him with a phrase in ancient Atlantean that means "impure."
  • Mundane Utility: Uses his Atlantean sorcery for the purpose creating art.
  • Smoke Out: He uses a variation using octopus ink in the tie-in comics.

    Lori Lemaris 

Lori Lemaris

Species: Atlantean

Voiced by: Kath Soucie


  • Our Mermaids Are Different: To an extent, courtesy of her character designer. They tried to emphasize her aquatic-ness and make her more deliberately fish like, making her tail and movements closer to an actual fish' rather than the dolphin-like traits mermaids are often given.
  • Painting the Medium: Her appearance in the show has her casting a translation spell, after which all the spoken Atlantean becomes understandable english for the viewer.

    King Nanaue Sha'ark 

King Nanaue Sha'ark

Species: Atlantean


  • Adaptational Heroism: His mainstream DCU counterpart is usually a villain, but here, he's (more or less) one of the good guys.
  • Authority Equals Ass Kicking: He's the king of the Atlantean city-state of Nanaue.
  • Canon Foreigner: Has appeared only in the tie-in comic so far.
  • Fantastic Racism: The victim of it like all other less human-like Atlanteans, but he shows traits of it himself, shown most notably when he refers to most other characters as "chum" and looks down on poor Topo for not being a "predator" like himself.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Repeatedly threatens and even attempts to eat other characters.
  • Mythology Gag: Quickly antagonizes Superboy, even if they're on the same side. In the comics, King Shark was a recurring foe of Superboy.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Acts like a bully, threatens to eat people, but is generally on everyone's side when they go after the purists. Still, his attempts to take a bite out of their enemies cause some friction.

    Ronal 

Ronal

Species: Atlantean


  • Shaping Your Attacks: Ronal can also make water constructs as Aqualad and Queen Mera can, such as when he is shown attacking Ocean Master with one shaped like a barracuda.
  • Unwitting Pawn: He and the other Purists were just used by Ocean Master in order to get at Queen Mera.

    Sha'lain'a and Calvin Durham 

Species: Atlantean (Sha'lain'a), Human (Calvin Durham)

Voiced by: Tara Strong (Sha'lain'a), Phil LaMarr (Calvin Durham)

Kaldur'ahm's parents.


    Wyynde 

Wyynde

Species: Atlantean

Voiced by: Robbie Daymond

"I do not see the appeal of this surface world… except that you [Kaldur'ahm] are here."

A reformed purist and Kaldur'ahm's boyfriend in Season 3.


  • Double Entendre: In "Unknown Factors", when he goes onto land with Kaldur, he comments "I will never get used to sucking and blowing like this.", referring to breathing air.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He used to be a purist, but he's apparently changed his opinion by Season 3, now being able to stand at King Orin's side and be Kaldur's boyfriend.

Forever People

    General 
A group of young New Gods from New Genesis, tracking stolen technology back to Earth, including Sphere. They help uncover a weapons trafficking conspiracy headed by Apokolips. They can merge into the giant Infinity-Man.
  • Physical God: They're New Gods from New Genesis.
  • Tron Lines: The outfits worn by the group and Infinity-Man incorporate these, with parts of them glowing.

    Vykin 

Vykin

Species: New God

Voiced by: Kevin Michael Richardson


    Dreamer 

Dreamer

Species: New God

Voiced by: Grey DeLisle


    Bear 

Bear

Species: New God

Voiced by: Bill Fagerbakke


    Serifan 

Serifan

Species: New God

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker


  • Aliens Steal Cable: He likes Westerns.
  • The Gunslinger: Proudly emulates his heroes from Earth Westerns using a pair of New Genesisan laser pistols. He includes a cowboy hat and poncho to complete the look, even speaks in a stereotypical cowboy accent.

    Moonrider 

Species: New God

  • Energy Ball: Moonrider uses his energy-projection powers to fight.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't say a word throughout his debut episode.

    Infinity-Man 

Infinity-Man

Species: New God


  • By the Power of Grayskull!: "TARRU!"
  • Super Robot: Has the trappings of one, though technically not a robot. The Super-Cycle can dock into its head, allowing Superboy to control it in a very similar fashion to Kouji Kabuto in Mazinger Z, the Trope Codifier for Super Robots. The Super-Cycle also gives Infinity-Man's head a similar appearance to Mazinger Z. Since in the comics Infinity-Man isn't giant-sized and can't combine with the Super-Cycle, it's likely that all this stuff is a deliberate homage.
  • Transformation Trinket: The Mother Box.

The Runaways

    General 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yj_runaways.png

  • Alien Abduction: All of them received their powers after being abducted and experimented on by the Reach.
  • Badass Crew: They definitely show signs of becoming one.
  • The Big Guy: Tye creates a huge astral form. In "The Hunt" he's referred to as "our big gun".
  • Breaking the Fellowship: In the finale, Tye, Ed, and Asami all decide to retire/return home since they were never interested in being heroes. Roy continues to strike out on his own since he conflicted with the Team. Virgil officially joins up with the Team.
  • The Chick: Asami is the only girl in the group and Luthor gave the Boom Tube to her; perhaps he thinks Women Are Wiser?
  • Color-Coded Characters: Virgil is blue, Tye is orange, Sam is green, Ed is yellow, and Arsenal is red.
  • Die or Fly: Artificially done, but the Reach exposed them to various stresses until their superpowers activated.
  • Dysfunction Junction: Virgil's the only one without preexisting issues, and now he's picked up the group issues of not being able to trust anyone or go to anyone for help.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: Their first "mission" together as a group, they managed to work rather well together in spite of their inexperience and a language barrier.
  • Five-Token Band: Native American, African-American, Japanese, Argentinian and white. See Younger and Hipper below.
  • Hope Spot: While their treatment by the Reach was much worse, immediately after being rescued they are confined within STAR Labs and subjected to grueling physical trials for 14 hours a day.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: They slowly develop control over their powers with each appearance, and "The Hunt" sees them capable enough to mount a successful rescue mission with some help from Arsenal.
  • The Lancer: Arsenal sets the biggest contrast with Virgil because he's a hothead, a veteran, and none too heroic.
  • The Leader: Virgil. The others follow his lead and he does the talking.
  • Not Wearing Tights: They are a proto-hero team but they don't think of themselves as such and don't wear costumes.
  • The Runaway: Tye ran away from his troubled home life and Ed ran away to see his father. However Virgil is an aversion; he was visiting his sister. Asami's circumstances are still unknown.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Subverted when they help the heroes in "Endgame". Virgil actually joins the Team afterward.
  • The Smart Guy: Eduardo uses cunning in his teleports. His father is also a Star Labs scientist.
  • The Smurfette Principle: They have one female member: Asami. Being that they're all parallels to the ethnic Super Friends, which had no females, she's a genderflipped version of Samurai. As a nod to this, the three boys nicknamed her "Sam."
  • Take a Third Option: They refused to join the Team or remain Luthor's pawns at the end of "The Hunt" since both have problems that they want nothing to do with.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "The Hunt", with some coaching from Arsenal, they manage to keep Black Beetle busy for much longer than anyone would think possible.
  • True Companions: When Ed's father is in trouble, they all go to help, even though it would mean returning to Star Labs where they were running from in the first place.
    • This stretches to Arsenal as well. They rejected the offer to join the team because Arsenal was kicked out. They extend him an offer to join up with them. Ultimately, he goes solo.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Of Lex Luthor in "The Hunt". However, once they realize this, thanks to Arsenal explaining it, they break ties with him.
  • Wild Card: The Reach, Star Labs, Lex Luthor, and the Justice League have all laid claim to them in the past. They've broken those ties and gone solo. Until Virgil joins the Team.
  • Younger and Hipper: All of them are based on the Captain Ethnic characters from Superfriends, only younger and with their more offensive traits removed. The sole exception is Virgil, though he could be seen as a stand-in for Black Vulcan.

    Virgil Hawkins (Static) 

    Tye Longshadow 

Tye Longshadow

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yj_tyelongshadow.png

Species: Metahuman

Voiced by: Gregg Rainwater

An Apache boy and Jaime's friend from El Paso. After his meta gene is activated, he gains the power to project a spiritual giant around his body. He is based on Apache Chief from Challenge of the Superfriends.


  • Abusive Parents: He has a bad relationship with his mom's live-in boyfriend, which is why he ran away from home. His mother was appallingly neglectful. Though in her defense, she seemed to be pretty terrified of said boyfriend as is the case with all real life victims of abuse.
  • The Big Guy: His powers increases his height and strength. The runaways generally rely on him as their heavy hitter.
  • The Cynic: Tends to look on the sour side, even more so than Ed.
  • Disappeared Dad: His father is implied to be deceased.
  • Fighting Spirit: Tye has the power to project a spirit giant around his body.
  • Glass Cannon: On the one hand, his astral projection power gives him Super Strength. On the other hand, he shares any pain the projection would, which makes it a lot easier to disable him than one would think. Anything that can get through the projection can also potentially hit him, making him extremely vulnerable since he's a standard human otherwise. Tye seems to have gotten better at handling the pain in "The Hunt", but still gets floored pretty easily when Black Beetle lands a solid hit.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: In spite of his cynical and angry nature, Tye is a caring and loyal friend.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: Once Jaime is buried by Red Volcano, Tye focuses and gains control of his powers to get him out.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He has long hair and delicate features.
  • Mythology Gag: He's based on Apache Chief from Challenge of the Superfriends, minus the need to say "Inechok" to become a giant, but his last name is Longshadow like the version from Justice League Unlimited (and shares the same voice actor, too!). Also, he really is descended from Apache chiefs of the Mescalero tribe.
  • Official Couple: After Tye gives up the superhero life, he and Asami are revealed to have begun a relationship; she even moves in with him and his mom.
  • Perpetual Frowner: About 99% of the time Tye wears a scowl on his face.
  • Power Incontinence: He once activates his power while dreaming. It's mentioned in the beginning of "The Runaways" that he's the only one out of the four that can't use his power when he wants to. By the end, he's got considerably more control over it.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: A kid named "Longshadow" who can project a spiritual giant?
  • Super Strength: Summoning his astral form allows Tye to have a drastic increase in strength.
  • Synchronization: Harming his avatar causes him pain.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He's the tallest of the Runaways, has long, black hair, and is considered very handsome by his female fan base out-of-universe.
  • Tall, Dark, and Snarky: There's also the amount of snark he unleashes from time to time.

    Asami "Sam" Koizumi 

Asami "Sam" Koizumi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yj_asamikoizumi.png

Species: Metahuman

Voiced by: Janice Kawaye

A Japanese girl who gains chi manipulation powers after her metagene is activated. She can't speak English(and at best a limited understanding when it's spoken to her), so doesn't say much.


  • Bilingual Bonus: Except for two words ("no idea"), she only speaks Japanese in "The Runaways". No subtitles either. Improves a bit in her later appearances.
  • Blow You Away: Inverted. As her powers are still developing, the most she can do currently is propel herself with chi short distances. In "The Hunt" she can project shock waves.
  • Catch Phrase: "Sumimasen" in all its inflections ("Sorry!" "Excuse me!/?" "Thank you").
  • Composite Character: Of Samurai and Crazy Shy Lolita Canary, a Japanese superheroine with a sonic scream and the same Catch Phrase.
  • The Chick: The only female member and, to an extent, is well-adjusted.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Implied. She refused to say anything about herself, except her name and nationality. And the season 2 finale revealed that instead of going home, she moved in with Tye and his mom.
  • Flat Character: Because of the language barrier, Sam has been the least developed of the runaways, instead being mostly reactive to the situations at hand.
  • Gender Flip: In the original Superfriends cartoon, Samurai was a guy.
  • Happily Adopted: After "Endgame", Virgil reveals that Sam moved in with Tye and his mom, mostly because the two teens had started a secret relationship.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: Her only power thus far is being able to launch herself with her chi powers. She makes the best of it.
  • In-Series Nickname: Called "Sam" by her friends.
  • Ki Manipulation: Word of God stated that Sam's power is chi manipulation.
  • Mismatched Eyes: She has heterochromia iridum, with a right green eye and a left brown one.
  • Mysterious Past: She is a runaway, but refuses to reveal anything other than her name and nationality.
  • Nice Girl: She's willing to help three guys that she has just met.
  • Official Couple: Virgil informs that she and Tye become this, and have actually had a thing for a while. Asami even moved in with him and his mom.
  • Ramming Always Works: Her initial attack is launching herself at the enemy.
  • Silent Bob: Due to the language barrier, she doesn't say much, even in Japanese.
  • The Smurfette Principle: The only one of the group who is female, though she was not the only female abductee.
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: She's based on Samurai and the other runaways nickname her Sam.
  • Tights Under Shorts: She wears black tights under her short jeans.

    Eduardo "Ed" Dorado, Jr. 

Doom Patrol

    In General 

The Chief (Dr. Niles Caulder), Mento (Steve Dayton), Robotman (Cliff Steele), Negative Woman, Elasti-Girl (Rita Farr)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yj_doompatrolgo.png
"Now wait here, alright? We all have to go on a mission and die!"

Species: Human (The Chief), Metahuman (Mento, Elasti-Girl, Negative Woman), Cybernetically-enhanced human (Robotman)

Voiced by: Scott Menville (The Chief, Mento), Khary Payton (Robotman), Tara Strong (Negative Woman), Hynden Walch (Elasti-Girl)

A team of superheroes. In between Season 1 and 2, they became active, but were then killed in the line of duty, with only Mento and Beast Boy surviving.


  • Adaptation Origin Connection: Rita/Elasti-Girl is a friend of Marie, having befriended her while they starred in Hello Megan! together. In the comics, Marie had nothing to do with the acting industry and thus had no connection to Rita.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: In Doom Patrol Go!:
    • Robotman says "Booyah!", the catchphrase of the Teen Titans (Go!) incarnation of Cyborg.
    • Likewise, Negative Woman borrows "Whatever." from the Teen Titans (Go!) Raven.
    • And of course, the Chief's Avengers, Assemble! phrase is "Doom Patrol, go!", from yours truly.
  • Black Comedy: They all sing an upbeat, colorful song about how they are all going to die gruesome deaths, much to Beast Boy's (and the viewer's) horror.
  • Casting Gag: They share their other voices with Beast Boy's fellow Titans from the Teen Titans animated series and the Teen Titans Go! spinoff.
  • Composite Character/Gender Flip: In order to fulfill the reference to the Teen Titans roster by having Two Girls to a Team, the line-up replaces Negative Man with his Distaff Counterpart; it's not clear if she's meant to be Valentina Vostok as in the comics (who was a member during the team's stories history) or a flipped Larry Trainor, as their abilities aren't a one-to-one in the source material
  • Dirty Coward: How Gar sees Steve Dayton. The version of Steve Dayton in Gar's hallucination chickened out during the Doom Patrol's ill-fated final mission (which is why he's the Sole Survivor of it).
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Rita made a cameo as a main billed actress on Hello, Megan! and thus was a co-star with Gar's mother, Marie.
  • Killed Offscreen: All of them except for Gar and Steve died in a mission between Season 1 and 2.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Depicted as such in Doom Patrol, Go!, because they died in real life.
  • Old Shame: In-Universe, Steve Dayton reacts harshly when Gar calls him "Mento" saying "Don't call me Mento". Since Gar and Steve are not on good terms, Gar calls him "Mento" again in spite.
  • Parental Neglect: Steve is Gar's legal guardian, but he seems to be using him for his celebrity status and acting career.
  • Parental Substitute: Steve and Rita are Gar's adoptive parents, Rita having been a close friend of Marie.
  • Posthumous Character: By the time we learn of their existence, they've already been killed except for Mento.
  • Remember the New Guy?: So far, Chief, Robotman, and Negative Woman have only appeared in the Doom Patrol, Go! sequence, in which Rita had to introduce them to Beast Boy. The whole team is already dead by this point as well.
  • Shout-Out: To Teen Titans and Teen Titans Go!. They share their voices with the Titans, the Doom Patrol, Go! is a Teen Titans, Go! expy, and their super-deformed designs in Doom Patrol, Go! are naturally based off of their Teen Titans appearances with the exception of Chief.
  • Sole Survivor: As in the comics, Mento was the only member not to die in their original final mission.
  • Vocal Dissonance: The Chief has Scott Menville's Robin voice.

Other Heroes

    Adam Strange 

Adam Strange

Species: Human

Voiced by: Michael Trucco

A scientist for S.T.A.R. Labs.


  • Adorkable: Just listen to his voice when he introduces Alanna.
  • Badass Bookworm: A physicist who can handle himself in a fight. Come Outsiders, he's fighting alongside the Raanian army and the Justice League to repel an invasion from Apokolips.
  • Badass Normal: No powers, but a combination of wit, know-how, and Raanian tech allows Strange to punch above his weight class.
  • Boldly Coming: Why hello there, Alanna. Partially flipped on its head, however, in that Alanna is far more eager to jump Strange's bones than the other way around.

    Blue Beetle I (Dan Garrett) 

Blue Beetle I (Dan Garrett)

Species: Human


    Green Beetle (B'arzz O'oomm) 

Green Beetle (B'arzz O'oomm)

Species: Martian

Voiced by: Phil LaMarr

A Martian archaeologist who found a Reach Scarab on his world, but was able to control it thanks to his mental powers. When he hears of the Reach's arrival on Earth, he travels there to fight with the team.


  • 11th-Hour Ranger: As of "Intervention," he is now able to genuinely add his considerable power to the Justice League's side in time for their final showdown with the Reach.
    • And then his Scarab is destroyed in "Endgame". While he helps the League save Earth, he returns to Mars afterward.
  • Adaptive Armor: The Reach Beetle armor.
  • Affably Evil: His whole disposition doesn't change even after his outing as The Mole.
  • Aliens Steal Cable: All Martians love television, apparently.
  • And I Must Scream: He was controlled by his Scarab, fully aware and unable to act, for so long that he can hardly remember actually being in control of himself.
  • Anti-Villain: He is being controlled by his scarab and once he is freed he is not evil at all.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rescues Alpha Squad from Black Beetle.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The Martian that the Scarab is possessing and by manipulating Blue Beetle and "fixing him", he does this to Jaime as well.
  • Brought Down to Badass: His scarab is destroyed in the finale, but he's still a Martian.
  • Canon Foreigner: Lampshaded when Impulse points out that he's never heard of him. B'arzz was created when the showrunners realized that, if they established that the Reach sent a scarab to every inhabited world after they'd already established that Mars is still fully populated in this universe, it would only make sense for there to be a Martian scarab user.
  • Genius Bruiser: Has full access to the Scarab's knowledge base.
  • Heel–Face Brainwashing: Zatanna uses an ancient spell which originally freed Blue Beetle's Scarab from Reach control to free both Green and Blue Beetle (again).
  • Magic Pants: The Scarab armor shapeshifts with him.
  • Manipulative Bastard: While acting as The Mole. First he used Miss Martian's guilt over brainwiping Aqualad to manipulate her into letting him "volunteer" the thoughts he wanted her to see instead of properly probing his mind for secrets. Then he uses Jaime's fear of coming under the Reach's control to get access to the inner workings of his scarab.
  • The Mole: It turns out he was working for the Reach all along.
  • Phlebotinum Rebel: All the power and knowledge of the Scarab, but it works for him instead of controlling him. Or not.
  • ShapeShifting: He's a Martian, so he can naturally shapeshift.
  • Shout-Out: A Martian named B'arzz O'oomm with green armor. Hmm...
  • Spanner in the Works: Impulse notes that he is curiously absent from history as he knows it. And Green Beetle turns out to the the key factor in setting Blue Beetle on the path of evil...
  • Super Power Lottery: On paper, he could potentially be the most powerful character in the show. B'arzz has the same abilities as both M'gann and Jaime, the team's two biggest powerhouses. However, most of his appearances have him bottlenecked by the fact that he's being controlled by the cautious Ambassador, and his scarab is immediately destroyed after the Reach loses hold of him.
  • Too Spicy for Yog-Sothoth: Subverted. According to B'arzz, the Scarab wasn't prepared for the unique physiology of a Martian. Turns out it was entirely prepared.
  • The Unsmile: He tries to smile to reassure Miss Martian before she probes his mind. The attempt is off-putting, to say the least.

    Secret (Greta Hayes) 

Secret (Greta Hayes)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yj_secret_4.PNG

Species: Human (ghost)

Voiced by: Masasa Moyo


  • Adaptational Wimp: In the comics, she's by far the most powerful member of the team, and when she turns evil she literally almost devours the entire human race, and has to be stopped by Tim talking her out of it. Here, she doesn't even seem capable of affecting the physical world.
  • Catch Phrase: "Secret."
  • Cain and Abel: Killed by her brother. Lampshaded by the magic shop across her home being "Abel's House of Secrets."
  • Dead All Along: Murdered by her brother, Greta's ghost does everything she can to save Artemis and Zatanna from the same fate.
  • Demoted to Extra: A main character in the Young Justice comics, she appears for all of a single episode in the series.
  • Ethereal White Dress: She's a ghost who is fittingly dressed in white.
  • Information Wants to Be Free: The unfinished business that kept Greta Hayes from moving on into the afterlife was her need to make it known that her brother Billy had murdered her.
  • Line-of-Sight Name: Taken from a faulty neon sign across the street from her home.
  • Morality Chain: Her brother Harm killed her to eliminate all love from his life, making him "pure".

    Blue Devil 

    Orion 

Orion

Species: New God

Voiced by: Ben Diskin

A New God warrior, away from New Genesis during Outsiders.


  • Ambiguous Situation: It's unspecified so far as to whether or not Orion is Darkseid's biological and Highfather's adopted son in this continuity, although it's quite likely.
  • Guttural Growler: Orion speaks in a very deep, guttural voice.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Ma'alefa'ak poses as Orion to stoke resentment against the New Gods among the Bugs, playing Orion himself as a callous backstabber who considers the Bugs beneath him (an extension of how Ma'alefa'ak himself sees the New Gods). Judging from Forager's immediate suspicion of the false Orion, it can be assumed that the real Orion would never act in such a way.
  • Red Is Heroic: Orion's primary color is red, and the testimony of both Bear and Forager paint him as an honorable man who would never abuse the Bugs as Ma'alefa'ak does while impersonating him.
