The Bat Family

Bruce Wayne/Batman

Alfred Pennyworth

Barbara Gordon/Batgirl

Dick Grayson/Robin

Supporting Characters

Commissioner Jim Gordon

  • The Commissioner Gordon: Obviously.
  • Demoted to Extra: Word of God says that they would've liked to do more with this character but the network had them give him the shaft because they wanted more focus on Barbara.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: According to Jeff Matsuda, Gordon was the young officer seen in the flashback in "Traction."
  • Parental Obliviousness: The poor guy can never fully connect with his daughter due to clashing views, and even years into the future, he still doesn't know about her superhero double-life. Justified, as the only time he ever got a good luck at Batgirl was the first time he met her, and he was missing his glasses.
    • Yet, he noticed Batgirl's hair color.

 "Another redhead?"

  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Another given.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Aside from the Early-Bird Cameo, Gordon's this. Alfred comments that "James Gordon has loomed large over [Bruce's] life." Then at the newly-installed Batsignal, Gordon says to Batman, "Thanks to all of your efforts, Batman, the time is finally right to take our alliance to the next step." Both said despite the fact that prior to "Night and the City," Gordon hadn't appeared in the present day.

Detective Ellen Yin

  • Action Girl
  • Brother Chuck: Aside from a reference in "Artifacts," she's not seen or heard from again after Season 2, though she does appear on occasions in "The Batman Strikes" comic.
  • The Commissioner Gordon: Before Gordon appeared on the show anyway, and while she was Batman's ally.
  • Race Lift: She's basically an Asian-American version of Ellen Yindell from The Dark Knight Returns, with her name, her journey from distrusting and hunting Batman to trusting and helping him, and the fact that said mention in "Artifacts" had her replacing Gordon as Commissioner.

Chief Angel Rojas

  • Asshole Victim: Almost. He was targeted by a newly-transformed into-Clayface Ethan Bennett after how badly he treated Bennett.
  • Brother Chuck: Disappeared after Season 2 and unlike Yin, nobody missed him or cares.
  • Expy: He's basically Harvey Bullock with a higher rank and no redeeming qualities.
  • Jerkass: He doesn't exactly treat a lot of his subordinates with any real respect.
  • Kick the Dog: His treatment of Ethan Bennett in the Season One finale.
  • The Other Darrin: Rojas was voiced by Edward James Olmos in his first appearance, then by Jesse Corti in all of his other ones.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: Just watch most of the episodes he's in. There's no way in hell this idiot should've gotten as far on the force as he did.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Batman saved him and his officers quite a few times and yet he's still an ass towards him.

Lucius Fox

The Justice League

Clark Kent/Superman

Barry Allen/The Flash

Hal Jordan/Green Lantern

J'onn J'onzz/Martian Manhunter

  • Bald of Awesome
  • Combo-Platter Powers: In addition to the normal set of flight, shapeshifting, telepathy, super strength and speed, and intangibility/nigh invulnerability, this incarnation also has telekinesis
  • Last of His Kind: It's generally believed that the Joining killed the rest of the Martians in this continuity.
  • Mind Over Matter: This version of J'onn has telekinesis.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: J'onn seems to have a psychological fear of fire. Hence the Joining could point an armed (but not discharged) flamethrower at the guy and make him back off.

Oliver Queen/Green Arrow

Katar Hol/Hawkman

  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": He was never addressed by his real name, but the fact he comments about fighting criminals on two worlds and the comment about the Batcave resembling Thanagar Police Headquarters pretty much confirm he's Katar Hol.
  • Space Police

The Rogues Gallery

The Joker

Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin


The Riddler

Poison Ivy

Hugo Strange

Killer Croc

  • Beast Man: Possibly Croc's most beastlike incarnation to date. Thankfully, the writers didn't claim that he had a "skin condition" this time.
  • Genius Bruiser: Especially when compared with his Dumb Muscle portrayal in Batman: The Animated Series.
  • Multiple Choice Past: We don't know whether he's a military genetic experiment gone awry, he deals with the wrong kind of voodoo magic in the swamps, or if he's simply a circus freak.
    • If the tie-in comic, The Batman Strikes counts as All in The Manual, then according to issue 25, he was both a military genetic experiment subject before escaping, then was part of a circus freakshow before escaping that and ultimately coming to Gotham, though it's still unknown if he was born like that as in the comics or if being part an experiment is the reason for his appearance.
  • Ragin Cajun
  • Ron Perlman

Mr. Freeze

Ethan Bennett/Clayface I

Basil Karlo/Clayface II

  • Attention Whore: Not only doesn't he even try to hide from security cameras, he'll look into them and boast about what he's going to do. He also went on a news program and tried to tell a bogus sob story. In fact, aside from a brief instant when he went What Have I Done after attacking some people for rejecting him for an acting job, he embraces it after realizing he's famous because of it now and got angry when Batman was mentioned in the aforementioned news program.
  • Bad Bad Acting: He wasn't a good actor before he became Clayface and he still sucks at it when he gets his power.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Subverted as he doesn't really seem to have one and parodied it as he tried to tell a story where he and his sister had to fend for themselves, but the reporter he tells it to clearly wasn't buying it.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Ethan.
  • Legacy Character: Interesting, considering the comics version of Karlo was the progenitor of the identity.
  • Large Ham

Harley Quinn


  • Curb Stomp Battle: Does this to Batman, though for different reasons than in Knightfall. Mostly the fact that using Venom turns Bane into a Hulk-like figure in this incarnation and that his debut was in the second episode of the whole series meant he was going up against a Batman still getting used to fighting supervillains and whose only prior experience at that point was the Joker.
  • Jobber: After his first appearance, Bane's been pretty much this, usually by someone zapping his venom tubes with a jolt of electricity seconds into the fight.
  • The Juggernaut: In his debut.
  • The Other Darrin: He was voiced by Joaquim de Almeida for his debut in "Traction," then by Ron Perlman for his cameo in "Team Penguin," then his grunts by Clancy Brown in "The Batman/Superman Story."
  • Super Serum: Venom, the source of his powers.

Black Mask

Lex Luthor
