How Would I Rebuild The DC Universe From Scratch? – Everyone’s Rogues Gallery

Yep, that time again, where I told about How Would I Rebuild The DC Universe From Scratch. This time, we’re talking villains again, but I’m doing something a little different. Basically, I’m gonna be showing who belongs in whose’s roster of villains. Now, I know that these are all pre-established villains that have been paired with superheroes before, but this would basically be me trying to shake things up and keep things fresh. So, by pairing different heroes and villains, or by bringing back older villains that were forgotten in time for one more go, it keeps things new while also experienced. On top that, I’ve found that some heroes have far too many iconic villains to try to count, *COUGH!*Batman*COUGH!*, while some heroes don’t have enough. Also, this doesn’t mean that someone on Batman’s roster would never fight Wonder Woman or anything like that, it’s just who they would generally go up against.

Superman’s Enemies

Superman’s powers make him not only arguably the world’s greatest superhero, but also one of the more adaptive. Naturally, his villains need to either be able to match his strength, be unique enough in their abilities, can combat him on an intellectual level, or have access to one of his weaknesses.
Examples: Atomic Skull, Brainiac, Doomsday, Dyna-Mind, General ZodLex LuthorMagpieMetallo, ParasiteSolomon Grundy

Batman’s Villains

Batman is the World’s Greatest Detective, has peak physical conditioning, and near endless gadgetry. Naturally, his opponents have to be the type that challenge him from an intellectual angle, or can take advantage of the simple fact that, for all those advantages, he’s still a human with no super-powers. Also, given his own issues with vengeance vs justice, his foes might likely have similar problems.
Examples: Bane, Clayface, The Joker, Killer Croc, The Mad Hatter, Mr. Freeze, The Scarecrow, Ra’s al Ghul, The Riddler, Two-Face, Victor Zsasz

Wonder Woman’s Villains

Wonder Woman’s mission as an ambassador of her people can be considered as trying to show the world of man it can be a world of compassion, equality, and peace. So, it only makes sense that her enemies would be the types of individuals that are in direct contrast to that vision: Villains that seek to oppress, create chaos, or outright destroy. Also, Wonder Woman is no stranger to magical or Godly villains, so they would fit in as well.
Examples: Ares, Captain Nazi, Cheetah, Circe, Giganta, Gorilla Grodd, Poison Ivy, Trickster (New 52 Apokolips version), Veronica Cale

Cyborg’s Villains

Cyborg’s advanced tech, enhanced strength, and history with the Titans makes his choices relatively simple: The bulkier opponents of the Titans in the past, villains that can circumvent his circuitry, or other technologically advanced individuals.
Examples: Amazo, Cinderblock, Deathstroke, KGBeast, Overload, Plasmus, Prometheus, T.O. Marrow

The Flash’s Villains

As I mentioned before, I would make Wally West the Blue Lantern Flash, so his opponents would occasionally be evil Lanterns out to snuff out the Blue Light of Hope. Still, that doesn’t mean his classic enemies, The Rogues, can’t pop in from time to time. 🙂
Examples: Bleez, Captain Boomerang, Captain Cold, Heat Wave, Magenta, Mirror Master, Reverse Flash, Pied Piper, The Top

Green Lantern’s Villains

Naturally, Green Lantern would face other Lanterns, like the Sinestro Corps, or the Red Lantern Corps, but what about some of the classic GL foes from before the various Lantern Corps started going at it? Don’t really see many of those much anymore, huh? I think I’d wanna bring some of ’em back, but with modern takes on them to make ’em more threatening.
Examples: Atrocitus, Hector Hammond, Javelin, Krona, Larfleeze, Major Force, Puppeteer, Sinestro, Weather Wizard

Justice League’s Villains

Since the Justice League of America is made up of the greatest heroes in the world, the villains to oppose them have to either be galactic threats, foes that a single hero would need aid in defeating, or teams of villains that require an equal and opposite team of heroes to beat.
Examples: Black Hand, The Crime Syndicate, Darkseid, The Legion of Doom, Neron, Paragon, Starro the Conqueror, The White Martians

Batgirl’s Villains

As a heroine inspired by Batman and occasionally trying to earn his trust, it’s only fitting that Batgirl’s foes would be villains inspired by other villains, or just some of the villains he doesn’t always have time for. Plus, y’know, some of his female rogues, since…Okay, I know I wrote Batman kicking the new Copperhead in the face, but I wasn’t exactly all that comfortable doing it, know what I mean?
Examples: Calculator, Condiment King, Harley Quinn, Matilda, Roxy Rocket, Twiddledum and Twiddledee, The Ventriloquist (New 52 version), The White Rabbit

Teen Titans‘ Villains

Like I noted before, the Teen Titans would be going back to their roots as a response team to distress calls from teenagers, so a lot of their villains would be the types that try to corrupt the youths of the world. Also, plenty of their enemies would be enemies based out of Jump City, or foes that even the Justice League need the extra help taking on.
Examples: Billy Numerous, Doctor Light, The Fearsome Five, Goth, Harvest, The H.I.V.E., Johnny Rancid, Mister Twister, Terra

Batwoman’s Villains

Batwoman operates out of Gotham City, and is usually (in my canon, anyway) investigating the ties between secret organizations and trying to bring down mob bosses. As such, her enemies are mostly mobsters, criminal syndicates, and hired guns, usually from around Gotham.
Examples: Alice, Black Mask, Deadshot, Firefly, The Great White Shark, Intergang, The Penguin, The Religion of Crime, Rupert Thorne. The Secret Society

…Okay, I think my tags are getting a bit insanely high, so I’m gonna hafta stop there. lol Lemme know what you think, if there’s anyone I should switch around, and I’ll see ya next time! Ja né!

JLA Fanfic 1st Official Trailer + More Plot Details

The first official trailer for my Justice League of America Fanfic, set to début on deviantArt in the Fall.

Music is from Final Fantasy VII and the Justice League animated series, images are from DC Comics. Now, for some more plot details and backstory.

  • As shown in the video, the first story arc will involve the main cast of my fic fighting high-tech Nazis from another Earth. They are invading this Earth because they’ve used up the natural resources of theirs and as such they cannot survive on their Earth anymore, instead coming to conquer our Earth in small groups through inter-dimensional portals (essentially Boom Tubes). The main antagonists are that reality’s version of Hitler and also Captain Nazi.
  • A side plot that will revolve around the Joker’s supposed death prior to this fic and Harley Quinn, disbelieving him to be dead, is gathering a group of villains (mostly lower class villains) to be his new gang when he returns. This will later get resolved after the first arc.
  • Solomon Grundy will appear as a villain for Green Lantern. People that have been reading Earth-2 should have a good idea what I have in mind.
  • A few miscellaneous villains I want to confirm are canon: The Royal Flush Gang, Mr. Freeze (Victor Fries), The Condiment King (Mitchell Mayo), Lex Luthor, Cheetah (Barbara Ann Minerva), Toyman (Winslow Schott Jr.), Metallo (John Corben), Copperhead (Nathan Prince), Weather Wizard (Mark Mardon), Mirror Master (Evan McCulloch), Scarecrow (Jonathan Crane), and of course, SNOWFLAME!!! XD

So yeah, that’s all for now. The fic will come out sometime this fall, and I hope you guys enjoy it. Ja ne!

JLA Fanfic – Villain Contemplations

Okay, so even though I have an idea for an overarching villain to use for a story, there’s still plenty of room to involve other villains, particularly minor villains. So with that said, here are some of the villains I had in mind as possible characters in my fic.

The Condiment King

Reasoning: Because the mere existence of this guy cracks me up, but there are ways of making him seem like a threat…or at least more threatening than he comes off, anyway.

Interpretation: I haven’t read any of the comics he’s been in, aside from the scene where he battles Robin, Black Canary, and Blue Beetle, so personality wise he’d be similar to what we saw in Make ‘Em Laugh. As far as his tech goes, I’m thinking a wide array of weapons and gadgets that fall under his theme, though he will occasionally fall back on his twin ketchup and mustard guns just for kicks.

Jack, Ace, King, 10, and Queen

Reasoning: A group of petty thieves, armed with advanced technology. They don’t have any grand aspirations of world domination, they’re just out to take what they want and leave while they can. And if anyone gets in their way, innocent or otherwise, they will use everything they have to get them out of the way, permanently.

Interpretation: If you can’t guess from the image, Justice League Doom. And yes, I like that movie, I don’t care what anyone says. lol

The Joker

Reasoning: …Okay, I have to honestly give a reason here? REALLY? HE’s the mother f’ing Joker! He’s arguably the greatest comic book villain ever known, be he the laughing clown that pulls silly ass plots like showing he could pull the world’s greatest boner (meant something different back then) or the murderous psychopath that killed Jason Todd and put Barbara Gordon in a wheelchair for years (albeit both got better, which is frigging weird).

Interpretation: Wouldn’t you like to know? >:)


Reasoning: This is a villain that takes something that represents the innocence of a child and makes it seem threatening. Sure, maybe not quite to the level of the Joker, but he’s still kinda disturbing in that sense. Also, depending on the interpretation of the character, he can be goofy, psychotic, disturbing, or all of the above, which gives plenty of opportunities for a fanfic writer such as myself.

Interpretation: I actually really like the version from the DCAU, the one that looked like a doll bent on murderous rampage using toys that are equipped to kill. Although I hear tell that DC decided to create a character based off that interpretation called Toyboy, so I may just use him instead.

Harley Quinn

Reasoning: One of the most popular Batman villains ever. Harley Quinn surpassed the original intent of the character in creating a minion in a funny costume for the Joker in the Batman TAS and has become a full character of her own. How could I not contemplate using her for a story?

Interpretation: DCAU, obviously, albeit maybe with a slight edge to her, more inspired by her personality in the Arkham games.

“Where are Snowflame’s fuzzy slippers?!”

Reasoning: Once again, I have to thank/blame Lewis Lovhaug, AKA Linkara of Atop The Fourth Wall, for this one, along with his friend Will Wolfgram. Because of those two, this one-shot villain from a REALLY bad comic who gets his powers from snorting cocaine has been granted meme-status. Seriously, there’s no way I could avoid contemplating using Snowflame.

Interpretation: Will Wolfgram’s version, with the comic version’s powers intact. Yeah, he lacks a certain level of intimidation with that kind of mentality, but I think I could write him to be that dangerous AND that frigging hilarious.

And those are just a few of the villains I’m contemplating for this fanfic. Stay tuned, because next more possible heroes will be revealed.
