Some or all of these characters need descriptions. A list of tropes is not a description.

For other characters that appear in the series, see the Young Justice Character Index.

Professor T.O. Morrow

Cquote1

Voiced by Jeff Bennett

Cquote2
  • For Science!
  • Graceful Loser
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: No more Pinocchios.
  • The Man Behind the Man: Or the man behind the man behind the robot behind the robot. No, really.
    • According to "Humanity", the T.O. Morrow we met onscreen is actually an android copy created by the original human T.O. Morrow. So, this T.O. Morrow is actually The robot behind the man behind the robot behind the robot. Could this get any more convoluted? Actually yes. If the original human T.O. Morrow is also involved in these plots, then that guy is The man behind the robot behind the man behind the robot behind the robot.
      • And then the last robot subverts all this and kills the robot before him, thinking he is the man, and hijacks the plan to Kill All Humans for himself. And the actual Man Behind the Man is just a bedridden old pensioner who is in not fit state to mastermind anything.
  • Robotic Reveal: The T.O. Morrow we met onscreen is actually an android. The real and human T.O. Morrow appears in the end of "Humanity" as an old bedridden man.

Psimon

Cquote1

Voiced by Alan Tudyk

Cquote2
  • Bald of Evil
  • Catch Phrase: "Psimon says."
  • Combat Pragmatist: When he faces M'gann again after the timeskip, he immediately takes her on despite his previous loss. When called on this by Icicle Jr., he points out that he can keep her occupied long enough for his cronies to dispatch her now-defenseless body. Doesn't work out, of course, but the strategy was sound.
  • The Dragon: To Queen Bee.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: If he gets into your mind, he can do this to you!
  • Mind Rape: Another specialty of his. Gets hit with it in return when he pushes M'gann's Berserk Button one-too-many times.
    • He's back as of the Time skip.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: He had a solid plan and good improvisation in "Beneath", unfortunately "Stab Miss Martian while I keep her occupied" was too complicated for Icicle Jr. to handle.
  • Telepathy

Project Cadmus

An underground (literally) genetic engineering lab formerly run by Dr. Mark Desmond and later by the hero, the Guardian. The lab is responsible for creating Superboy from Superman's stolen DNA. The Board of Directors are actually the leaders of The Light.

The League of Shadows

An organization of assassins founded and run by super villain Ra's Al Ghul.

Black Spider

Cquote1

Voiced by Josh Keaton

Cquote2
  • Actor Allusion: Not the first time Josh Keaton has voiced a loud mouthed comic character with spider powers.
  • Building Swing
  • Captain Ersatz: Despite being based on a DC character named Black Spider, he's Spider-Man if Spider-Man was a criminal. He makes wise cracks during battle, he's voiced by Josh Keaton, and he even refers to swinging through the city as 'web slinging.' Of course, "Spider-Man as a criminal" was pretty much the premise for the original comic character as well.
  • Grappling Hook Gun: His webshooters.
  • Wall Crawl

Cheshire (Jade Nguyen)

Cquote1

Voiced by Kelly Hu

Cquote2
  • Action Mom: Kicks ass while carrying her infant daughter.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Inverted. She's not nice by a long shot, but she's also a far cry from the Complete Monster of the comics.
  • Abusive Parents: Her father, Sportsmaster, though details are so far unclear other than Artemis' comments in "Bereft." Word of God confirms that Sportsmaster was at least verbally and emotionally abusive, leading the 13-year-old Cheshire to run away from home.
    • Cheshire also mentions in "Usual Suspects" that Sportsmaster would constantly make his daughters fight one another.
  • Aloof Big Sister: To Artemis. Although she does care for her little sister in her own way.
    • Cain and Abel: Averted as neither one of them is actually willing to kill the other and will put themselves in danger to save each other when it comes down to it.
  • Anti-Villain: Type I. She's a ruthless assassin most of the time but she definitely has people she cares about and has a tragic past that sort of explains her actions. In season 2 and during the time skip she seems to have become a Type V Anti-Hero.
  • Asian Baby Mama
  • Badass Normal: Badass enough to go toe to toe with Aqualad.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: Her mask is permanently set in one.
  • Cool Mask: First appeared in the Teen Titans animated series.
  • Dating Catwoman: She acts like she and Roy have this relationship in the first season, just to mess with Artemis. In season 2, they're married and have a child.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Deliver Us From Evil: Zigzagged. She and Roy got married during the time-skip, but she left him and returned to crime after having a child. Why? So she could better finance the search for the original Speedy, allowing Roy to get off his butt and step up as a parent.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Results in her first genuinely altruistic act of the series. As she states:
Cquote1

Cheshire: (after pushing Artemis out of an avalanche) "Okay fine, we're sisters. I don't actually want you dead."

Cheshire (to Artemis): "So like the Cheshire Cat, I'll just disappear."

Count Vertigo

Cquote1

Voiced by Steve Blum

Cquote2
Cquote1

Count Vertigo: Count Vertigo, peasant!

Cquote2
  • Combat Pragmatist
  • The Chessmaster: "Coldhearted" shows him at his finest.
  • Diplomatic Impunity: The reason why he isn't arrested with the rest of the Injustice League, as revealed in "Coldhearted". Unfortunately for him, he loses this as he is tricked by Kid Flash into revealing the truth.
  • Evil Uncle: Tried to kill Perdita, his niece and the queen of his country in order to gain the throne for himself.
  • Engineered Public Confession: Tricked into one of these in "Coldhearted" after the queen presumably had died.
  • Faux Affably Evil
  • Graceful Loser: At least when the Injustice League is defeated. Not so much in "Coldhearted", where he tries to kill Perdita after having his title and immunity taken away from him.
  • Smug Snake
  • Steven Ulysses Perhero: His full name and title are Count Werner Vertigo.
  • Touché: To both Wally and Perdita. "Well played children, admittedly well played."
