Wonder Woman: Encyclopedia of Villains

Fair~ I confess I tend to forget about the latter two Doctor Poisons. And I suppose we don’t really know enough about any of them to stretch it enough…

Now Doris eventually I will make a profile for~! Her and the Gorilla Giganta are waaaay to different as characters not to do that. :laughing:
…Just takes me sitting down to read ‘Secret Six’ and get an idea what in the world her character is.

hmm…I don’t think there are any Wonder Woman villains whose names start with ‘J’, ‘X’, or ‘Y’…A shame, I was kinda hoping I could make an alphabet.

Maybe ill uncover some villains I missed in a reread…

Based on the recent storyline, you might consider Janus to be a villain, but I’ll defer to your interpretation on that. As to Y and X I’ll keep thinking on that.

Perhaps the Ytirflirks and maybe Agent X, that’s all, I can think of.

Of course! Janus! Hmm…Given thats sorta spoilery, I might give it more time before I make an article on em.

Oooo~ Thats a good one~ I can’t recall off the top of my head if there were any specifically named Ytirflirks, and that alien menace WAS the central antagonist to a pretty big story…

Sadly, Agent X would probably count under 'A’s, so we might be stuck

there is an X. it’s the Mayan or Incan god whose name is long and hard to spell. and pronounce. But should start with the letter ‘x’. He appearaed pre-crisis silver or bronze age (i am not sure where the line is).

So Not an X. But who I was thinking of. so at least my reference points were good.

Okay. Now what about the villain god that was pitted against Wonder Woman, Artemis (of the Bana-Mighdall) and a female Aztec. I only know because we covered it in World of Wonder.
