The Rama Khan is an inherited title given to whoever is favored by the land. For every generation of the populace has one amongst them who would be blessed with a special connection to the land and be gifted with magical might to shape the land to his will.

A perfect utopia which is free of hunger, crime, and inequality. Populated by a people raised to believe they are better than all others, having thrived in secret for five thousand years.

A utopia which exists only on the condition that once every generation, a toddler would be ripped away from his family, losing his name, identity, and become but the latest Rama Khan, with his family done away with so as not to distract from the ruling of Jarhanpur.

Willing to commit any atrocity in the name of the land of Jarhanpur heedless of what the land itself wants, Rama Khan would not rest to act in the name of his kingdom.

Hmmm, odd. I find nothing here about Ludendorff creating the ‘stab-in-the-back’ theory, joining Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party, participating in the Beer Hall Putsch, becoming a member of the Reichstag and would go on to run for president in 1925. Oh wait, Wonder Woman killed him so yeaaaaaaaah

Name: Sally Marsden
First Appearance: Legends of the DC Universe #4 (1998)
Creators: William Messner Loeb and Mike Deodoto Jr
Abilities: Police training. Possession of a machine gun which can release hundreds of bullets in seconds. Possession of a power suit which grants her enhances strength, and flight. Laser canons.


Backstory: Police officer for the Boston Police Department. Sally was someone drunk on the sense of entitlement and privilege that her position as an officer of the law allowed her. Taking it for granted that she could do anything without consequence in the pursuit of justice.

Be it firing into crowds, killing dozens of innocents in an effort to take down a single criminal amongst them. Assaulting children for not respecting and worshipping her. Setting homes aflame and waiting for families to perish in the burning blaze all in the effort of smoking out a suspect.

Sally believed that her job had nothing to do with keeping the peace or helping the city. Her job was to be actively at WAR with the criminal element and this meant using any tactic available to her no matter how heinous so long as it meant the enemy would die.

Not caring who was caught in the crossfire for if you were not a cop, then you were just a future criminal to be culled in her eyes.

Name: Officer Jensen
First Appearance: Legends of the DC Universe #4 (1998)
Creators: William Messner Loeb and Mike Deodoto Jr
Abilities: Police training. Connection into Star Labs through which she operates a black market weapon shop for the criminal element.


Backstory: Police Officer for the Boston Police Department. Jensen was a blood thirsty police officer who was obsessed with the desire to see the police be given bigger and better weaponry on par with military for only then could the city be made safe.

Viewing any effort to deescalate violence and talk down the criminals with contempt. Jensen would rather see bodies on the ground regardless of crime or circumstance. For she would use any tactic for the war on crime.

Enraged that higher ups refused to grant the police department power suits which would allow them to walk through a barrage of bullets and crush people like tomatoes with a single slap, Jensen decided to take matter into her own hands.

Thus Jensen nurturing a contact within Star Labs who would help her smuggle defective power suits out of the building which she would then proceed to give away to the criminal element of the city for the same price as your standard hand gun.

For only once the city saw the criminals as a big threat who needed to be brought down with excessive force would they give the police excessive force to match.

And once the criminals weaponry broke down, the police would be unopposed to purge the city of any undesirables they wished.

@Razzzcat

I just wanted to say you did a great job creating this awesome topic. Learned a lot from the community, more specifically @nuuninuunani about Wonder-woman villains and especially ones from the Golden age and the TV Show.

What a wonderful topic! :wonderwoman:

@nuuninuunani I have my own checklist going - just cross them out as I go, so I don’t accidentally double up. :smile_cat: Works for me. And if I want to add any to my list, I check here to see if it already exists, too.

I haven’t gone back to them on a while, but I recall being almost done w/ Captain Wonder and Queen Bee. :purple_heart:

I’ll have to ponder this…I don’t think I got to the anthology books, might hit those to add to the list.
Failing that…Gosh, im not sure short of rereading the series and cross referencing…

Name: Red Star, White Star, and Blue Star
First Appearance: Wonder Woman #176 (1968)
Creators: Robert Kanigher and Mike Esposito
Abilities: Super Strength, speed, and the weird ability to finish eachothers sentences.


Backstory: The star triplets were three brothers named Joey, Jackie, and Johnny who were head over heels for Wonder Woman, convinced that they would force her to marry them and retire from crime fighting.

Bribing a starving genius scientist for a sauna treatment which would bestow them with super strength in exchange for a sandwich, the Star siblings would don costumes and proceed to try and force Wonder Woman to marry them by attempting to out do and replace her!

The only flaw in the plan of the Star triplets was that only one of them could marry Wonder Woman and they would fight eachother to be the one to claim Wonder Woman as their own like some sort of trophy.

Name: Cybernaut
First Appearance: Wonder Woman #213 (1974)
Creators: Cary Bates and Irv Novick
Abilities: Ability to project a planet wide ‘pacifying ray’ that renders all higher thinking lifeforms incapable of harming any living thing. Super strength. The ability to project laser blasts from its mouth.


Backstory: Created by a noble and well meaning scientist from a distant world whose population had been lost to nuclear warfare, the Cybernaut was invented so that it may journey the galaxy, forcefully spreading peace in an effort to avert wars until a planet was fully pacified.

However the inventor while operating on the best of intentions, overlooked the harmful affect pure pacifism would have upon people. For they were now incapable of fending off locusts and pests which would eat their crops. Not that they would be able to bear harvesting the crops in any case, as killing a plant, much less an animal became something impossible for anyone to comprehend or carry out.

Thus peoples would become easy prey to animals which they were now incapable of defending themselves against, and unable to consume anything if it meant taking a life of even a blade of grass.

Thus for all the good intention that went into the Cybernaut as a creation meant for peace, it was a great a threat to the survival of civilization as any war.
