    The Living Tribunal 
The Living Tribunal, God of Guarding The Multiverse (Living Trinity, Currently Adam Warlock of Earth-19141)
  • Overdeity
  • Symbol: The purple shroud surrounding his faces
  • Theme: Living Tribunal Double D
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral
  • Portfolio: Guarding Reality, ordering around The Powers Cosmic, Multiple Head Case, Absolute Power that's rarely used
  • Domain: Law, Balance, Time and Space, Justice
  • Second in command to: The One Above All
  • Underlings: Eternity, Galactus, The Celestials
  • Allies: Eiki Shiki, The Spectre, The Endless, Primus, The Protectors of the Plot Continuum
  • Enemies: The Anti-Monitor, Darkseid, YHVH, Lord English, Fused Zamasu, Barbatos, Galeem and Dharkon, Hajun, Unicron, Lord Fuse, Sigma, any being who poses a serious threat to multiversal balance and order really
  • Opposes: Every other Hadou God, Nekron, The Daedric Princes
  • The Multiverse is a large place, and as such someone has to make sure it's safe. There are a number of multiversal guardians, but the Marvel Multiverse's official guardian is the Living Tribunal. Second only to The One Above All, the Living Tribunal keeps the balance of the various powers in creation and prevents any reality from becoming too powerful or any being from truly upsetting the balance. It's rare that something gets his attention, with even universe-level cataclysms often being below his notice, but his judgement is absolute and only scant few have ever avoided it.
  • Technically the second Living Tribunal. The original was slain by the Beyonders, so The One Above All chose an alternate Adam Warlock. It is unknown if the original was ever a mortal being or the successor to another. His three faces effectively serve as judge, jury and executioner. Known to few is the ever-covered fourth face, which reflects those who see it as a sort of cosmic mirror.
  • Is one of the most powerful members of the Pantheon. He is second only to his God (hinted to be Jack Kirby) in the Marvel multiverse, and is almost as powerful as the Four Alignment Overdeities. However, he rarely showcases this because of a fatal weakness: his heads need to be in agreement with one another to act. And whenever he's involved personally, the Living Tribunal has a harder time for some reason. Maybe it's down to having little combat skill, since he almost never needs it.
  • The Living Tribunal quickly became a co-worker with Eiki Shiki, who saw his massive power as a boon to the cause of justice. With their combined powers, almost no-one will dare try and rebel against the Court of the Gods. YHVH has tried to get him to work for him, however, he has declined. The reason? YHVH as a flagrant abuser of power, and upsets the balance of creation by tying it to. He and Eiki Shiki are working for a way of eliminating Him for power abuse, or at the very least make Him more manageable.
  • The Living Tribunals' antipathy towards YHVH has only grown upon his Eiki Shiki being co-leaders of the Magistrate Judges, in order to monitor YHVH and serve as an ethical center. While not looking favorably on him, he doesn't actively oppose Nekron, due to being a natural cosmic force who exist to defend/embody the natural darkness and void, he has warned the Lord of the Unliving not to push his luck. His opinion on Lucifer, however, remains undecided.
  • On good terms with the Endless, being cosmic entities who are fundamental constants like Death, Destiny etc. It's just he's far more introverted than them and only very rarely shows up in person. He generally acts indirectly, willing to destroy whole worlds to preserve trillions of lives (though as Doctor Strange has shown, he will listen to reasons against such extremes). He looks favorably on Primus, for being a force of benevolent while also knowing not to interfere all that much.
  • He is in contact with the Protectors of the Plot Continuum, who's work fits his own vision of cosmic balance and stability by hunting down irregularities like Mary Sues that'd throw it out of whack.
  • As per his role of Multiversal Guardian, the Anti-Monitor has placed him high on his list of opponents. The Living Tribunal is preparing to slay him once and for all. Others have proven serious threats to the safety and stability of the multiverse, such as Lord English and many within the House of Legendary Foes. Predictably Zamasu is the most vocal about his critique of the Living Tribunal, calling him out by how rarely he intervenes. The Living Tribunal simply replied, "your extremism shows why beings like me can't interfere too often".
  • Since the Throne overwrites and creates new laws of the entire multiverse, the Living Tribunal opposes those who sit on the Throne. He is not completely averse to change as he argued in favor of Galactus being the Lifebringer as opposed to Master Order and Lord Chaos demand that he remain the Devourer. However, they proceeded to kill him using the newly formed order to hit him when he's weak and justify their actions through it. Hajun is the one being the Living Tribunal is absolutely opposed to sitting on the Throne, as his Law would destroy all that is and ever shall be so Hajun can forever be left alone. Which is actually similar to The One Below All in motivation, actually.
  • Because Order and Chaos killed him while the cosmic order wasn't set in stone, the Living Tribunal has grown a distaste towards Galeem and Dhakron. They're very overbearing and destructive, and have proven to disrupt the balance of order and chaos on a multiversal level. He is interested in Ugo since he maintains divine ranks, though has yet to form a concrete opinion on him.
  • Though he is not contemptuous towards them as he is to Hajun, the Living Tribunal doesn't like most of the Hadou Gods as their Law hurts the mystic, moral and cosmic balances he exists to maintain. Mithra started the whole thing, and her Law is highly chaotic in practice. Nerose Satanel may have noble goals, but purges free will. Mercurius causes eternal stagnation in his eyes. Only Ren Fuji's Law is something he tolerates, mostly cause he actually suppresses it most of the time and only invokes it when necessary for the sake of the Multiverse.
  • The Living Tribunal dislikes the Daedric Princes on principle, though he does not consider them a serious and direct enough threat to creation compared to the likes of Zamasu and Barbatos that he has to intervene. His reasoning is that they are generally chaotic beings who had no hand in creation; this is in contrast to the orderly Aedra who sacrificed their power to take part in Mundus' form.
  • Despite his frustration towards the Throne, the Living Tribunal tolerates someone gaining ultimate power over their single universe. Just as long as they do not affect multiversal balance. He tolerated Thanos taking the Infinity Gauntlet because its range is limited to a single universe and because he worked for it. For example, he does not have anything against Asura taking down Chakravartin, for example.
  • Unlike most other Gods of Pantheon, The Living Tribunal was actually glad to see the Celestials ascend. His reason is namely that Scathan the Approver, his own personal Number Two, now resides.
  • Also holds a position in the House of Space and Cosmos.

Tartarus, The Unholy Protogenoi Of The God's Prison (The Pit, Tartaros, Protogenos of the Abyss, The Pit of Evil, Father of the Gigantes, Stinking Pit, Erebus, Erebos, God of the Abyss, Grandfather of all Monsters)

  • Respawns: All Greek/Roman Gods, Titans, Arachne, Cerberus, Medusa, Scylla, Charybdis
  • Respects: Azathoth, Kevin Flynn, The Lady Of Pain
  • Respected by: Everyone
  • Disrepects: Both Satans, Diablo, Zetta
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sometimes, the Deities argue over specific themes and philosophies.
  • It was an odd day in the Pantheon when several pits began to show up, with the largest three appearing in the House of Law and Justice and Otherness. At first it was thought that they were simply sinkholes, but this was proven false very quickly by Skips who claimed it's Tartarus. Upon hearing this, the Greek gods sent Hades to check it out. He was nearly sucked into it for his trouble.
    • The gods of the Greek pantheon have hired Isaac Clarke, Skuld, The Kids Next Door, Kokonoe Mercury and Dexter to fill in the sinkholes. Felix was also hired for maintenance.
      • The three largest pits were left alone though, two became the sites for Tartarus's temples and third remained as a exit for monsters respawning in Tartarus.
      • The House of Law and Justice use their pit to Tartarus as a sentence for the worst of the worst villains in the Pantheon.
  • Tartarus is the place where true immortals of the Greek pantheon are reborn when they are killed, serving as a sort of Respawn Point for them.
    • It's unknown if he is this for other primordial gods. Athena and Annabeth state that this is unlikely.
  • Historically Tartarus (the place) was used as a Prison for the enemies of the Greek gods. Tartarus is apparently fine with this, seeing as he enjoys the fear and suffering he causes.
    • It's probably because of this that many people seem to forget that Tartarus is in fact a primordial god, with the entire place simply being his true form. To make matters even worse, Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase have shared with the entire Pantheon that for the first time ever Tartarus has created a mortal form. He did this to try and stop the two from escaping his domain.
      • Thankfully he has yet to leave the pit, in fact some doubt that he even can.
      • Rarely uses his mortal form since preferring his true form; the abyss, it grants him more of his power and allows him to be everywhere in Tartarus a bit less focused.
  • The Grox once tried to build a colony in the abyss, and for a while it was great. Then they all felt like they were being watched and the atmosphere cleared up, the water got clean, the ground became fertile and plants began to grow. The Grox in the pit didn't survive.
  • Was overjoyed to find his beloved Gaea in the pantheon.
    • Upon hearing about Gaea's hatred of Gohma Vlitra, Tartarus (in his mortal form) tried to drag him into one of his pits to destroy him and devour his soul for all eternity. Gohma Vlitra escaped though.
      • He also wants to kill Kratos for her.
  • Thinks that Haruhi Suzumiya may be Chaos, his mother/creator, and as such listens and obeys her. Kyon receives much of the same benefits, though this is mostly by extension.
  • The Underworld may in fact be a part of Tartarus.
  • Appears to have a good if not neutral relationship with the other primordial gods, since according to Percy and Annabeth Tartarus is the location of Nyx's Mansion Of Night and the home of Akhlys. This is also likely why he never attacks those on the Earth directly because Gaea is the very Earth and he may accidentally harm her.
  • Tartarus technically exists in many Alternate Universes; however, he simply appears to exist as another realm seeing as he neither appears or is mentioned. The inhabitants of these universes still haven't spoken up about this and no one has tried to ask Tartarus himself for a answer, for obvious reasons.
    • Some have theorized that this is just an attempt to limit his influence in the Pantheon.
  • Little information exists about Tartarus since the only people confirmed to have managed to speak to him peacefully are Gaea, Haruhi and Kyon. The rest are simply rumors spread by those that have escaped the pit. Said rumors are:
    • Hates Billy for turning the abyss into his own personal playground.
    • Hates the Pikmin because he's now infested with them and can't seem to get rid of them.
    • Hates SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star for having once walked into the pit with salad on their faces singing "Now That We're Men."
    • Admires The Lady Of Pain's work.
    • Has no respect for those that rule some form of Hell.
    • Is a creation of Hephaestus/Vulcan.
      • Shortly after this rumor another spread about Tartarus having a intense desire to kill him for that lie.
    • Respects and possibly even fears Azathoth for its power.
    • Respects Kevin Flynn for creating a entirely new realm and then arguably ruling it. The fact that he did all this as a mortal makes it even more impressive to him.

Greater Gods

    The Warden (Superjail
The Warden, Overseer of Inescapable Prisons and Deadly Jails
  • Greater God
  • Symbol: His face
  • Theme Music: Comin’ Home
  • Alignment: Chaotic Neutral
  • Portfolio: The Wonka, Non-Action Guy, Bloody Hilarious, Manchild, Everyone Calls him “The Warden”
  • Domains: Prisons, Insanity
  • Heralds: Jared, Alice, Jailbot, The Doctor, all the inmates of Superjail
  • Allies: Peacock
  • Rival: Tartarus
  • Mixed Relations: Maiev Shadowsong
  • Source of Frustration for: Willy Wonka
  • Avoided by: The Sinner
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Kilian Experience
  • Observed by: Howard & Kreese
  • Superjail is an extra-dimensional prison on top of a volcano home to plenty of violent inmates where buckets of blood are spilled daily. The head honcho of that place is a warden with the mindset of a child and one whose shenanigans almost always result in more chaos for everyone involved. Then again, for the most part, Superjail is bound to fall apart if its own warden and his varied assistants aren’t there to look over the controlled chaos that happens regularly.
  • A violent psychopath was roaming around the grounds of the Pantheon one day, looking for something to loot and pretty girls to go after. Just as he was ready to make the girl his own and seize her riches, he discovered that the girl was nothing more than a disguise for Jailbot, who proceeded to chase the criminal around the Pantheon, leaving a bloody mess in their wake. The criminal was caught and taken to Superjail and The Warden had been musing just how much fun it would be if the entrance to Superjail was near the grounds of a bunch of gods. Despite Jared’s concerns, work on the device that would connect Superjail to the Pantheon was already completed and The Warden was more than looking forward to seeing what surprises would head his way.
  • He is often described as what would happen if Willy Wonka ran a maximum security prison and was far more eccentric than normal. After learning about how there’s a copycat of himself that somehow managed to make the real deal look sane by comparison, Willy Wonka has grown wary of The Warden and his occupation. Even more frustrating is that while Wonka had some issues with his father that he eventually resolved, the Warden not only had a terrible childhood involving his abusive dad, but ended up inheriting his dad’s position as a prison warden. By his own admission, Wonka is relieved that The Warden has no plans to go inside Wonka’s chocolate factory, even if The Warden’s reasons for it (he really hates children since they make him look “old”) was rather strange.
  • Due to their experiences of having to endure a dangerously long prison sentence and having to fight in a lot of dangerous battles for their freedom, The Sinner very much wants nothing to do with Superjail and its warden. What they had to go through was bad enough and learning that bloody brutality is a regular occurence in Superjail was more than enough to make The Sinner sick. While The Warden doesn’t care all that much about them, The Sinner has done everything in their power to make sure they don’t end up in Superjail.
  • Thanks to some encounters with The Mistress, the head of Ultraprison, The Warden was curious to see if there were other deities in the Pantheon that shared his occupation. Maiev Shadowsong heard about Superjail during one of her assignments and wanted to know what the prison was like. After a while, she ended up in The Warden’s office inside Superjail and she had a lot to worry about during her tour of Superjail, mostly because of The Warden’s eccentricity and the frequent use of what she thought was magic going around and affecting Superjail’s going-ons. While she did understand what Superjail’s warden was going for, seeing what she perceived to be a glorified playground, made Maiev tell The Warden to take his job more seriously to ensure that any dangerous criminals that get in can’t get out. The Warden simply just saw Maiev to be a tough cookie and believed that it won’t be the last time the two would encounter each other, be it in Superjail or possibly outside of it.
  • Superjail’s warden quickly learned that his prison wasn’t the only one in the Pantheon. He learned about Tartarus, a deep abyss where the dead suffer in what is essentially hell itself. At some point, The Warden wound up in Tartarus through some strange and bloody circumstance and demanded to see the “owner” of this place. He then got to witness Tartarus’ physical form and proceeded to say in his face that Superjail is a far superior prison than whatever desolate landscape that Tartarus lords over is. Tartarus didn’t take well to these insults and believed that Superjail is a barely functioning mess of a prison and that its warden is not fit to look over massive prisons. The Warden did get out of Tartarus after some nasty (and rather immature) arguments, but the bad blood between them remains.
  • He once got in an argument with Kilian Experience after the latter dismissed prisons as ineffective and ridiculous. The Warden then claimed that he ran a prison for quite a while and things have been running spite of the argument taking place as mutated animals were running amok and killing Superjail’s inmates at the time. Kilian Experience then told The Warden a story of what happened when he decided to run a prison that was as “effective” (if that can even be a word in this case) as what The Warden was talking about. His attempt at running a prison ended up being just as insane as what normally happens with The Warden around, though it hasn’t prevented the two from engaging in other petty arguments when they meet.
  • The Warden saw a bit of himself in Peacock, another manic individual known for getting into a lot of violent hijinx. His interest in her piqued after seeing her wear a costume that looks similar to his normal clothes and he decided to arrange a meeting with her, with Peacock being a fan of how insane Superjail can get. Given just how bad things the circumstances that lead to Peacock becoming who she is (and The Warden’s childhood being not much better), he’s agreed to Peacock’s request that anyone who opposes her be sent to Superjail.
  • For the time being, he’s the immature, but mostly energetic warden of Superjail. In the far off future however, The Warden will become a powerful tyrant that will wage war against the rest of the world and devastate it all in the name of gaining more power. Within the Pantheon, whatever it is that will cause The Warden’s dangerous power trip hasn’t happened yet, but a few time travelers have gone to the future and there have been conflicting reports about the state of the world and The Warden. It mostly just boils down to “nothing’s changed” or “The Warden has conquered everything around him” according to those reports, with attempts to find out what caused the latter going nowhere. The Warden himself is rather annoyed with those time travelers given that he had to deal with some Time Police himself and that those particular individuals he dealt with didn’t give him a chance to explain himself.
  • Even with all the blood and gore that happens regularly inside Superjail, the one thing that would set off its warden is killing anything in front of him. That hasn’t prevented some far more psychotic deities from wanting deathmatches to take place inside Superjail given its reputation. Even if such an event hasn’t taken place yet, Howard and Kreese, both of whom have made their name in commenting on over-the-top violence, have done some commentary on Superjail and its events for those that have yet to visit the place.
    Howard: Just think of the possibilities in that place! A one-way ticket to mayhem that could fill several seasons worth of DeathWatch programming and get us much more than we could ask for!
    Kreese: And if all that ain’t a feast for the eyes, then...I don’t know what else to say about your eyes.
    Howard: You do realize this is just reading things yet!
    Kreese: I want to imagine things, not read through it!

Intermediate Gods

    Maiev Shadowsong 
Maiev Shadowsong, Goddess of Wardens (The Warden, Watcher, Hunter of the Betrayer, The Rogue)
  • Intermediate Goddess
  • Symbol: Her Glaive
  • Theme Song: Maiev's theme
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Momentarily Lawful Evil in the past)
  • Portfolio: Anti-Hero, Badass Cape, Disdain towards magic, Brief Face–Heel Turn, Hair-Trigger Temper, He Who Fights Monsters, Relentlessly hunting down Illidan, Knight Templar, Never My Fault, Rings of Death, Unscrupulous Hero,
  • Domains: Justice, Wardens, Teleportation, Assassination, Prison, Guarding
  • Allies: Tyrael, Ana Amari, Judge Dredd, Inspector Javert, Anti-Mage, Kiritsugu Emiya, The Warden, Valla, Harth Stonebrew
  • Rivals: Zeratul, Valeera Sanguinar, Batman
  • Enemies: Kael'thas Sunstrider, Lady Vashj, Gul'dan, Tychus Findlay, Demons, Thresh
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: The more benevolent members of the House of Justice
  • Opposes: The House of Magic and Sorcery, as well as numerous mages, The House of Crime and Transgressions, Amanda Waller
  • Complicated Relationships: Illidan Stormrage, Malfurion Stormrage, Tyrande Whisperwind
  • Leader of the Night Elves Watchers, Maiev Shadowsong was the one that made sure to keep Illidan Stormrage imprisoned for his betrayal. But when she discovered that he was freed after she came back from a mission by none other than Tyrande Whisperwind, Maiev decided to pursue Illidan until he was brought to justice. But after the death of a few of her soldiers, including her right hand Naisha, recapturing Illidan became a personal matter for her.
  • Maiev's reason for ascending the pantheon after learning of its existence are quite simple. She wants to bring her brand of justice here and also to keep a very close eye to Illidan. Whenever he is and whatever plans he may have, Maiev will always be following shortly.
  • Maiev didn't leave a very good impression among the more benevolent gods in Justice, namely because of her questionable morality and how once she butchered unsuspecting Highborne and Worgen because of her own bigotry. In the latter case, she would rather you forget about that ever happened.
    • That said, Maiev and Judge Dredd seem to get along pretty well, even if he labelled her as a criminal given her rather morally questionable actions but he let's it slide since they have the same goals and objectives.
    • Doesn't seem to see eye to eye with Amanda Waller, mostly for her use of criminals to deal with highly dangerous missions, often reminding her of what Tyrande did to protect their home by liberating Illidan. Waller it's considerably disappointed since she would have been the perfect candidate to keep an eye on Task Force X.
  • Illidan isn't the only one who Maiev has a lot of contemp for, the same can be said for his brother Malfurion and Tyrande Whisperwind for releasing him. With Tyrande is even more personal since she murdered a number of her own soldiers to free the Betrayer and they already had a history of animosity in the past when Tyrande snatched Maiev the title of Priestess of the Moon.
  • She is very determined to catch whoever escapes her. In the case of Illidan, she even chased him all the way to Outland. However, at that point, it wasn't a matter of justice but instead she was seeking revenge because Illidan murdered her close friend and companion Naisha. She even earned the respect of Javert himself after learning of how dedicated she is to her mission, even if it had driven her over the edge.
  • Her job as a Warden is to watch over any pantheon dweller who has committed a crime and she will gladly watch over the convict until they are released. She from time to time receives the aid from the Warden who she is actually very amiable with.
    • She is very aware of Warden's reputations as being sadistic and cruel. She certainly can be when she is over the edge, but normally she is not like that. That same reason is why she has no respect for Thresh.
  • She also despises mages and always had a distaste for magic, particularly those who are addicted to it. This is partly the reason he hates Blood Elves and the Highborne, particularly Kael'thas Sunstrider since he dared to join forces with Illidan after she saved his and his people lives. Gul'dan is someone else she despises, although for very different reasons. She witnessed how he was mauled by demons and believes he totally deserves it.
    • She also seems to be on good terms with other anti-magic people. With Anti-Mage they had a rocky start, his similar appearance to Illidan made Maiev believe he was an Illidari but hopefully he was able to clear the misunderstanding. Likewise, she found Kiritsugu Emiya to be a valuable ally and it helps that both seem to be rather anti-heroic in their approach.
  • When you review their history, Illidan and Maiev are actually not that different from the other. But don't say that to her face, as she won't take the comparison lightly.
    Maiev: I am nothing like Illidan! I merely do whatever is necessary to achieve my goals, even if it means making morally questionable decisions while growling about the hatred I've felt for ten thousand years!
  • Others also like to interpret her obsession with Illidan as her being infatuated with him and being a combination of a Tsundere and a Yandere. Their banter in their Cathedral of Eternal Night didn't help matters, and when questioned about this once, Maiev just tried to brush aside all the claims.
    Maiev: What do you mean I'm obsessed with Illidan? It's not like I think about him every day. And every night. Picturing his smug grin as I sharpen my glaive, imagining how it would feel when I plunge into his chest, right between those big, disgusting tattoos, leaning in close to watch the light fade from his eyes— Oh, I'm sorry. What were you saying?
  • Seems to have some degree of respect for Batman, at least having quoted him several times and their fighting styles not being that different from the other.
  • When she found out that Illidan was also present in a world called the Nexus, she wasted no time in joining in. Of course, the first she did is keep an eye on Illidan, but this time she wouldn't hesitate in working alongside the Betrayer so long as she kept an eye on him. She also met with a fairly colorful cast of characters that caught her attention.
    • The first one was Zeratul, who could be said that his powers certainly emulated those of Maiev in certain ways. To test his skills, the Warden challenged the Dark Prelate to a duel and was surprised by how effective he was but she knew every trick he pulled. Ultimately, the fight was called off and there was no clear victor, but she does hold some deal of respect for the Protoss.
    • Surprisingly enough, she actually sympathizes with the role of Ana Amari and how both were always bound by their duties. Ana is mostly surprised by the night elves lifespan and how they never get to retire. Well, at least Maiev has clarified that her job is eternal and she won't ever leave it until she dies.
    • Find Tychus punishment to be pathetic and that he deserves worse. Whenever the time comes, she will gladly give him a taste of what Illidan had to go through.
    • Strangely enough, she does approve of Valla being a Demon Hunter. Besides hailing from different universes, at least she doesn't have to resort to Demon influence to combat them and that's ok in the Warden's book.
    • Admires Tyrael for being the embodiment of Justice and always is honored to fight alongside him whenever she is given the chance. She often likes to consult with him whenever her action went too far or not. Tyrael didn't hesitate to use some Brutal Honesty but believes that Maiev's intentions are well-meaning.
  • Maiev not always is an obsessive and dutiful Warden all the time. Sometimes, she decides to take a break in Harth Stonebrew's Tavern and just mess around. She is been labelled as a Rogue, something that doesn't bother her that much but when it comes to the other Rogue, Valeera Sanguinar, she does get a little worked up given her being a blood elf. But she is not as aggressive in the Tavern as she normally is and prefers to be more laid back.
  • "None can escape my fury, None shall flee my grasp!".

    The Wall 
The Wall, Divine Organization of Supposedly Inescapable Prisons
The Wall's Logo
Dmitri Johannes Petrov, the Wall's Warden
Grigori Olyat, the Second-In-Command
  • Intermediate Level Organization
  • Symbol: The Complex and The Wall's Insignia
  • Theme Song: The Wall and Complex Waltz
  • Alignment: Lawful Neutral (Lawful Evil for Dmitri and Grigori)
  • Portfolio: Affably Evil, Badass Crew, Mother Russia Makes You Strong, No Sympathy for the inmates, Tank Goodness
  • Domains: Prisons, Wardens, Law, Protection, Army
  • Allies: Amanda Waller, The Warden, Soda Popinski, Freddy Fazbear
  • Rivals: The Killian Experience
  • Enemies: Henry Stickmin and Ellie Rose (escaped inmates), Charles Calvin, The Toppat Clan, Carmen Sandiego, Sly Cooper and his friends, Murdoc Niccals, Tai Lung
  • The Wall is a maximum security complex located in Canada, run by the organization of the same name and whose task is to hold the most notorious criminals the world has to offer. An infamous place to end up for any criminal and hasn't had an incident in the last 50 years...until Henry Stickmin was brought in. Having caught wind of Henry's notorious track record thanks to Grigori Olyat, Warden Dmitri Johannes Petrov personally captured Henry and put him in his complex in hopes of finally putting an end to his activities but Henry one way or the other managed to escape, sometimes under Dmitri's nose, other times by calling outside help or even starting a prison break. Either way, given the Wall's reputation and Henry seemingly not having that hard of a time escaping considering the methods he used, the organization was chosen to represent the title of "Inescapable" Prison Easily Escaped, one which the Warden and the rest of the Wall wasn't exactly happy to receive but nonetheless accepted the invitation to the Pantheon.
  • Dmitri (and by extension Grigori) ascended with the sole intention of putting Henry behind bars for good, him being one of the few people to have escaped his complex has certainly did a number on his reputation and the fact that Henry is sharing a temple with Ellie Rose, another inmate that escaped the Wall seriously bothers Dmitri a lot. There is also the presence of Charles Calvin, who was also involved in one potential timeline where he helped Henry escaped on behalf of the Goverment, which puts Charles in a tricky situation with the Wall who definitely sees the helicopter pilot as a threat.
  • Dmitri and Grigori made their presence known after apprehending several deities residing in the House of Crime and Transgressions and locking them up in the wall. Several Grand Alliances later criticize his approach and mostly helped certain people that were incarcerated to be released but Dmitri mostly didn't budge on certain people. He also needed to make a powerful friend and Amanda Waller was the perfect ally, as when it comes to methods and goals, Dmitri and Amanda couldn't have been more alike. Although the fact that she commands a squad of superpowered bad guys does concern the Warden a bit but it's not exactly out of line considering the type of people and equipment the Wall employs.
  • Dmitri is not the only one that runs a prison as he surprisingly found another Warden in the same house his organization was placed. At first he didn't take him seriously but considering the reputation of Superjail, Dmitri slowly grew to respect the man, even if he finds him quite peculiar (said the stick figure). Another strange Warden was The Killian Experience, another zany deity and this one wasn't much to Dmitri's liking, especially because he is a bit of a criminal himself. Dmitri believes that Killian is in fact a covert member of the Toppat Clan (Sven Svensson) and has attempted to capture him. It was succesful, but unfortunately for Dmitri, Killian broke out and caused an even bigger prison riot that the one Henry was responsible of.
  • The hiring standards for The Wall are as strange as the ones for the Toppat Clan. Even certain deities have been spotted working as guards, one of those being famous Russian boxer Soda Popinski (who for undisclosed reasons, goes by Cocca Colinski). Dmitri also apparently managed to hire Freddy Fazbear to oversee and guard the darkest parts of the facility and the animatronic does it pretty effectively (though most inmates aren't really scared of him). The fact that Freddy was hired concerned a few people since technically Freddy is a kid.
  • As you can probably see, there is not much to say about Grigori besides being Dmitri's right hand. What you can know about him is that he gets brought only for the difficult jobs, and in Henry's riot, he got hit a jeep... and survived only with a broken arm.
  • One of the Wall's goal for the longest time was being the organization to capture Carmen Sandiego. Attempts have been mostly unsuccesful as she is notoriously hard to find in the first place. There have also been several attempts to apprehend Sly Cooper and his gang of thieves but they too have been able to outsmart most of the staff at the wall. Even Carmelita Fox, an interpol agent herself, find Dmitri's increasing attempts at apprehending Sly to be rather extreme and his attitude sort of reminds her of Contessa, but not that evil in the end.
  • Ever since an incident regarding two guards being distracted on the job, Dmitri had to ban dancing at all in order to prevent another "Distraction Dance" incident. The Warden grew tired after countless people made fun of him for the silly dance.
  • Perhaps one of the most embarrasing incidents the Wall suffered was when Murdoc Niccals of Gorillaz fame was transferred to their facility, thinking he wouldn't be coming out anytime soon. They were mistaken after a group of Gorillaz fans managed to somehow infiltrate the complex and hack the system, allowing Murdoc to escape and make fun of the guards while at it. Though Dmitri at least doesn't consider this event too embarassing since Murdoc was a few days from being released anyway and it somehow didn't cause another prison break.
  • Wanting to test his mettle against the Wall's forces, Tai Lung willingly turned himself in to see if this prison could give a challenge. Dmitri knew about this and only arranged to have him around a week before surrendering him to the GUAG and once the leopard attempted to escape, he was surprised at how many of the guards were straight up anomalies such as earthbenders or swordmasters. Even the laser spears caught him off guard. Ultimately he failed in his quest, but Tai Lung managed to evade capture by the GUAG after the Wall released him.
  • By decree of the Pantheonic Authorities, the Wall had to give each of the Grand Alliances a liaison in order to keep a close eyes on the organization's activities. While at least five alliances were allowed one, Dmitri absolutely refuses to give one to either the GUAC and GUAD knowing what their goals are.
  • There was only one timeline (Thief/Allies) where The Wall tried to recapture Henry and Ellie. Said timeline could end in two ways. To put it plainly, they lost in both, and lost in a pretty bad way: Dmitri and Grigori die in both endings. In one of them, they die in a rocket explosion. In the second one, Grigori gets shot to death and Dmitri falls to it.
  • "Welcome... to The Wall. Some of the most cunning and notorious criminals are kept here. And now the infamous Henry Stickmin. You're going to be here for a long time."

  • She is especially hailed as being one of the few thinkers who vocally dared to comment "Maybe we shouldn't just keep murderers who can fire atomic blasts behind non-atomic-blast-proof walls". Amanda was named leader of the very seriously titled Task Force X, also known as the Suicide Squad, and immediately got the supervillains placed under her custody doing actual community work (destroying terrorist organizations, destabilizing controversial regimes, etc.). When she ascended, she took the Squad with her and convinced the Justice gods to let her deal with supervillain reformation duty. To this day, most supervillains sweat at the prospect at being left to Waller's mercies.
  • Amanda ascended by dint of being noted as one of the very few people who can take on the Batman and Lex Luthor and actually manage to defeat them in terms of planning. As mistress of the Suicide Squad, she is also by necessity tough enough to deal with most supervillains, regardless of power level. The Suicide Squad bombs implanted on most of her agents ensure their full compliance. For everything else, her Co-Dragons Bronze Tiger and Rick Flag are there for her. Most find preferable to annoy Batman than Waller, because the Bat is, whether he likes it or not, going to leave you alive. Waller gives no such guarantee.
  • She also draws power from being one of the very few goddesses of color, age, and size. As of late, some upstart young thing tried to impersonate Amanda. You Do Not Want To Know what Amanda did to her...
  • Much to her annoyance, she occasionally is forced to visit Al Bundy, in his shoe shop. Both hate each other, but find the experience of trading barbs and belittling and spiting each other as highly therapeutic, especially now both have each other's measure and know exactly which buttons to push.
  • Despite her standards, her and Captain America have a... complicated relationship. Amanda's methods make Cap infuriated, considering what happened the last time there was a villain team fighting for good in his universe. He's also quite angry at her for abusing her power and killing innocent government officials for no reason in the movie. Amanda for her part considers Rodgers sentimental, and not willing to do what needs to be done fighting the GUAE. For that matter, that's probably why she has some good ties to the GUAL as well. In fact, she's considering switching full time there but is held back because she's loyal to a country, not to its leaders.
  • Annoyed by Nick Fury, who's not fully sold on the idea of using captured supervillains for underground wetwork tasks. When pressed, Waller snorted and responded that some tasks are better left to disposable operatives rather than valuable manpower, and chided Fury for his use and abuse of Life-Model Decoys. When Fury asked her to explain her dislike of the robots, Waller challenged him to name every incident in which his vaunted machines had gone rogue ever since the program started. He replied by saying that said robots saved his life countless times and that they helped him out of many problems, which more than made up for the possibility of them rebelling. However, he did acknowledge that said possibility could prove to be a big problem. He also said that the LMDs usually go rogue only via being hacked and reprogrammed, like most mass-produced robots.
  • Her past is quite surprising; few could have ever expected that Amanda Waller was once an ordinary housewife and homemaker. However, the loss of her husband and two of her children to crime, well into her forties, lit a fire in her. Too proud to accept help from extended family or from welfare, she clawed her way up to get her surviving children, and later herself, through college. Exploiting instincts she never imagined she had, she became first a congressional aide, setting her in the path to become the infamous Amanda Waller. An interview with her sister revealed that she is worried Amanda may be consumed by her dark side. It's not known how close Amanda is to the rest of her family, but at one point, she did get her daughter and son-in-law to resolve their differences during a squable through sheer attitude, so she at least continues to watch out for them.
  • A few deities, especially the Nostalgia Critic, seem to think of her as an incompetent moron, especially because in the movie, she caused more harm than good by creating the Suicide Squad. According to the Nostalgia Critic's review of the movie, if Waller hadn't tried to create the squad or if she took more precautions to prevent the Enchantress's escape (instead of just letting one guy guard her in a hotel room), then the world wouldn't have been endangered and the people who died during those events would still be alive. In other words, what happened in the movie is entirely her fault, according to them.
    Waller: ...'You finished?
    Critic (sighing): Yeah, I'm finished.
    Waller: 'You feel better?
    Critic (quietly): ...Yeah, I do.
    Waller: *sighs, and pats him on the back* Come on, let's just hope the new Wonder Woman movie's better.
  • Roodaka once got captured by the Order of Mata Nui soon after her troubles in Metru Nui and was forced to serve them to do their dirty work. This made Roodaka distrustful of Amanda Waller, who also captures villains and made them go on suicide missions to do unfathomable objectives. Waller finds some value in Roodaka's abilities and is devising a plan to "coerce" her to cooperate, which is never happening in everyone's eyes.
  • Has been known to visit Coffy on occasion, either to warn her to quit getting in her way with her vigilantism or to try to convince her to put her skills to use as a member of one of her taskforces. Coffy never goes along with this, obviously. She doesn't have much faith in the government, which is what Waller works for, and would certainly not appreciate having her movements controlled by her to such an extent. In fact, Coffy is not at all a fan of Waller's penchant for putting known criminals to use in important missions, firmly believing they either belong in a cell forever or with a bullet between their eyes (preferrably the latter). With that said, the two women share a lack of sentimentality and a ruthlessness that's rather uncommon in Waller's world of superheroes, and the two begrudgingly respect each other for that.
  • Maiev Shadowsong does not see eye to eye with Waller, mostly for her use of criminals to deal with highly dangerous missions, often reminding her of what Tyrande did to protect their home by liberating Illidan. Waller it's considerably disappointed since she would have been the perfect candidate to keep an eye on Task Force X.
  • Epsilon thinks Amanda Waller's tactics are dangerous. Not the part about leading a team of operatives who are less than morally upright, but the part where he has no clue whether she's vetted for who among her subordinates could be considered trustworthy and made sure to position them closer to her side. He sees this as a major tactical gap on Waller's part that could lead to her army being taken over by one of its more sociopathic members, and so can't bring himself to support the Suicide Squad.
  • Has been keep an eye on Kuroto Dan/Kamen Rider Genm since she gained an interest of using him and his abilities for her own gain. It doesn't take long for him to have a grudge on her considering he had a bad experience of being a Boxed Crook back then.
  • Notoriously has tried to coerce Charles Calvin into forcing both Henry Stickmin and Ellie Rose to work for her as part of the Suicide Squad but she was met with much opposition from the trio, especially after hearing about her controversial methods. Charles would usually try to avoid getting in contact with Waller and preferring to phone General Galeforce, who is a much more reasonable authority figure the three can trust, even if Henry and Ellie might actually be possibly not on their side (again, the canon is all over the place.)
  • The Boys occasionally work together with Waller, who similarly believes that superheroes need to be kept in check. However, they don't particularly like her due to her ruthless methods, although Butcher tends to find common ground with her.
  • Though Tychus Findlay is technically a criminal sent to fight in his armor, he admits to not like the idea of working with Amanda Waller. For example, her having a remote bomb on the Suicide Squad if they don't obey her is similar to Mengsk having had a trigger to shut down his major organs if he didn't kill Kerrigan.
  • Due to Mata Hari's relations with Harley Quinn, Waller approached her to see if she could be a useful contact for the Suicide Squad given her skills that she inherited from her fictional selves. She isn't sure what to think of it because of her manipulative schemes and wanting to be in power that reminded her of those of the greedy politicians that she hated in her time. However, hearing about her past of her own family being killed and that she was just a normal housewife at that time, she could see why she would do what she has to do and given that Mata Hari values family a lot, she pitied her a little bit. Because of this, she isn't willing to be involved with Amanda unless it's necessary.
  • While Waller doesn't work for the CIA, the agency that Ryu Hayabusa has control over, A.R.G.U.S., does work in similar regard, though their methods and control over its membership are a lot more harsh and brutal, which was something that Hayabusa did not like one bit. It didn't help that Waller was not above killing her subordinates if they deviated from her orders or they became too much of a liability, which made Hayabusa all the tenser about thinking about her. Waller herself isn't too critical about Hayabusa, thinking that he may be someone worth working with. She's managed to strike a partnership, though Hayabusa has asserted that this will only be based on professionally mutual terms and that she doesn't go after Hayabusa's loved ones unless things get really ugly on either side.
