Creators: Joye Hummel and H.G. Peter
Abilities: Brilliant scientific mind, flight, The respect and deference of his Bughuman people.
Backstory: Foremost scientific mind amongst the population of the Bughumans. Professor Buggo was well regarded by his entire species who would not hesitate to follow his commands for there was little doubt that Professor Buggos sole motivation was to build a better tommorow for Bughuman kind!
The Bughumans themselves were a parasitic multi-cellular microsorganism which had evolved characteristics which are a most unusual blending of human and insect. Viewing all other life as lesser and to either be subjugated or consumed, they were a dangerous force and stymied only by the simple fact that their smaller size limited what they were capable of.
Enter Gerta Von Gunther! The daughter of Baroness Paula Von Gunther, Gerta having been rescued from the nazis holding her hostage as a toddler, had lived amongst the Amazons mastering Amazonian super strength, and grew up in America with her mother who became a professor at Holliday College.
Gerta reaching young adulthood, came down with that most troubling of maladies for the genius prone ‘FOR SCIENCE!’ syndrome in which one does things not for good or for evil, but purely for the sake of scientific inquiry. A desire to learn regardless of the consequences which may follow.
Upon discovering the Bughumans, Gerta invented a size changing device to enlarge them to human size so she could enlarge a specimen, study it, then return it to normal size. Recording her results and repeating this process on multiple specimens.
The Bughumans were in a panic as this was occuring, but Professor Buggo studying this process came to a conclusion that this could work in their favor and allow their microscopic civilization to prosper to impossible heights!
Thus deducing the process by which Gerta selected test subjects, Professor Buggo organized a plan for the ones enlarged to overpower Gerta and enlarge several more. Then take the device used to enlarge them into the skies, enlarging their entire civilization to exist within Earths skies!
The Bughumans would succeed in their efforts and with Professor Buggo leading them, they would see the Earth as their feeding ground. Safe in the knowledge that there were no predators which could impede their efforts. Confident that any species other than their own was easy pickings for the giant microorganisms and their fully established civilization.
Professor Buggo would lead his people to greatness!

She came to love Diana as a sister and dreamed of fighting evil alongside her; But traumatized by both her father’s death, and that of her best friend Lucy, she ultimately fell prey to self doubt and several of Wonder Woman’s longtime villains.
Her school counselor, an undercover Dr. Psycho, convinced Julia that Diana was the cause of her daughters distress, so Julia sent Diana away. Now, in addition to her grief, she felt abandoned by her friend that she considered like family. Her mixed emotions were a perfect target for Circe, who wanted to use Vanessa to defeat Diana. Using physical implants and warping her mind, Circe and Dr. Psycho turned Vanessa into the terrorist criminal, Silver Swan. Before Diana could attempt to resolve the situation, however, the Imperiex attack and Circe attempts to takeover of New York City.

First Appearance: Wonder Woman 2 (1942)
Creators: William Marston and H.G Peter
Abilities: Personification of greed, wielding vast ever-growing wealth, he can become an invisible and intangible voice that whispers and tempts his targets to give in their greed and self-importance.
Backstory: At once the most seemingly harmless yet most pervasive of Ares boys, the Earl of Greed is the anthropomorphic personification of both ego and greed itself. The desire to take as much as one can dream, hoard it just for the sake of having it
(better to see that wealth destroyed than for it to go to benefit others), and desire not just simply to be wealthy, but to be wealthier than others.
The Earl is part of a trio that during that often serves the interests of the God of War, Ares. Whereas one of his counterparts, the Lord of Conquest, was an open show of force that sought to dominate others and force ones will upon them in a direct manner, and the Duke of Deception perfers misdirection and falsehoods incarnate, The Earl was far more subtle and insidious. Seemingly everywhere, he was that little voice whispering into the ears of the wealthy to take more than they needed. The one urging against giving to others and to keep more and more still for yourself.
The Earl of Greed is capitalism made manifest. A being who grows in power and influence in a world where there is a price on human life and the all mighty dollar has more value than any human right or consideration—often making him a valuable tool for The God of War, when every CEO, bank robber, dictator, and fascist motivated only by their own prosperity and the desire to have more than anyone else is the unknowing puppet of destruction.
For so long as vanity and entitlement exist in the world, the Earl of Greed will likewise exist. Invisible and whispering temptations into the ears of those who are receptive to his influence.
First Appearance: Wonder Woman 2 (1942)
Creators: William Marston and H.G Peter
Abilities: An immortal master of manipulation, deceit and disguise, his powers range from illusions and possession, to necromancy and astral projection.
Backstory: When a hero has long served as the embodiment of truth, it only makes sense that one of her oldest and most menacing villains has been the personification of deceit and manipulation: the Duke of Deception. Thought to be modeled after Dolos, the diety of trickery, there have been several alternate versions with subtle revisions to his outward appearance, but he always remains a devious immortal who rules over lies with the power to possess anyone he chooses, and creates illusions which cause his enemies to question reality itself driving them insane.
A demigod within the Greek pantheon, the Duke is a trusted operative for the God of War, Diana’s greatest foe. In service to his master, the Duke, acting from his base on the planet Mars, helped spread falsehoods and confusion (even built a Lie Factory at one point) in an effort to cause conflict in humanity—conflict that would ultimately result in the wars Ares so desperately craved.
The Duke often travels in his astral form to “whispers” rumors and duplicitous thoughts, all in an effort to stoke the fires of discontent. He can delude the minds of ordinary humans, ultimately driving them to madness, and can also create illusions, often changing his physical appearance so as to manifest as anyone he desires.
After Crisis on Infinite Earths he is seen as a more independent villain, and also a crusader for Hades, and in one account manipulated a young man named Thomas Byde to kill himself, and then possessed his body, and using his illusions and necromancy, he became famous. While the Duke himself has gone unseen for many years and was presumed dead, a deity bearing ancient armor reemerged using his name and teaming up with several of Wonder Woman’s supervillains under the leadership of the sorceress, Circe.
First Appearance: Wonder Woman 2 (1942)
Creators: William Marston and H.G Peter Abilities: An astral figure specializing in provoking savagery and invasion, also able to possess sentient creatures.
Backstory: The Count, also known as Lord Conquest, is a lieutenant of the God of War, and would likewise seek to undermine Wonder Woman’s mission for peace with subjugation and annihilation. Debuting along side the Duke of Deception and the Earl of Greed, Conquest would complete the terrible trio, representing physical brutality—the epitome of a dreadful henchman.
Operating on the planet Mars with his counterparts, where they tortured or trained prisoners as future soldiers, he was sent to capture Wonder Woman, and was ultimately successful; But the timely interventions of Etta Candy allowed Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor to escape. The Count also helped to facilitate efforts to perpetuate an unending state of destruction on Earth by sending his astral form to inspire dreams of conquest, cruelty and martial law in the minds of military and government leaders - conquer and subdue!
Versions of the character have appeared since as the symbol for conquest and the violent side of human ambition, and so long as the God of War seeks to create conflict, The Count will no doubt aide him in his malicious efforts, unless truth and love (and a certain Amazon) stand in his way.

Backstory: One of the great Amazons of Paradise Island who has been alive for thousands of years, Panthea was an Amazonian scientist who dedicated her focus into the field of astronomy, the study of the stars and planets.
Paradise Island being hidden away within the Bermuda Triangle and then further hidden away with a field of invisibility which was layered with a force field followed by a perpetual fog, was impossible for outsiders to find unaided. This was most perfect for secrecy and security. However it made using a telescope to gaze off into the sky a headache for someone whose focus was on the study of the skies.
Panthea experimenting with the forces which protected Paradise Island, attempted to create a gap within it to allow her to poke a telescope through. However the resulting backlash from such an effort was so great that the mysterious energies involved somehow shattered the legendarily unbreakable bracelets of the Amazons!
All Amazons being so bound by their bracelets that it was a piece of their mental state, this shattering of them left Panthea mentally unbalanced. Driving her to a state of madness. Convincing herself that Hippolyta was an enemy to all Amazons in keeping her from gazing out into the stars, Panthea plotted a way to kill both Diana and Hippolyta. Intending to become the islands new queen.
Placing clay fascimiles of her bracelets on to avoid suspicion, Panthea in secret began moving within the Amazons to remove the bracelets of several among her number, leading to them aligning with and serving her. Thus, Panthea would track planes flying over the Bermuda Triangle and lure them to crash into the force field guarding Paradise Island, destroying them in the hopes that this would cause the Americans to put Wonder Woman to death. All as she worked to corrupt the Amazons from within by removing their bracelets until she could overthrow Hippolyta. All because in her fragmented mind she was convinced that this was the only possible way she could properly enjoy star gazing and become a rising star in the field of astronomy!

Abilities: Political and administration skills, Paralysis ray gun, sword haver, access to a climate changing machine, and later the power of ice themed wizardry.
Backstory: In the frozen north beyond the lands ruled by humankind lay the secret kingdom of Iceburg Land. A nation of people made from ice and snow who made a technologically advanced civilization by realizing you can make Anything out of ice.
Ruling over this nation was Queen Snowina who was well aware that her nation was in dire straits. For being a people born from the cold, warmer temperatures were actually fatal to their kind. With global warming rearing its ugly head, the people of Iceburg land were facing a potential extinction thanks to humanities efforts.
Minister Blizzard was the prime minister of Iceburg land. Answering directly to Queen Snowina, Minister Blizzard handled all of the necessary errata that actually went into managing a country and its administration.
When the brilliant minds of Holliday College would seek to singly handedly bring an end to global warming, Minister Blizzard caught wind of it and reported to the queen about the climate changing machine. However he twisted the truth, claiming that the humans intended to use it to melt all of the ice in the north pole, exterminating them all!
Thus Queen Snowina giving Minister Blizzard command of her nations military for the sake of stealing the machine and using it to maintain the cold temperatures they need for their survival.
However Minister Blizzard being far less alturistic than he may appear, had a seconary goal. He saw this machine capable of creating an everlasting winter and saw an opportunity…For conquest!
Thus cooking up false orders in his queens name, Minister Blizzard led the army of Iceburg land with the intention of bringing about a world wide ice age in which the people of ice and snow would flourish while humanity perished. Allowing him to conquer the world with massive iceburgs that devastated cityscapes.
In the modern era Minister Blizzard would be tweaked, becoming a human wizard who kept the title of minister despite lacking an authoritative position. All of his magic being based around the ice and snow, he had no connection to Iceburg land in this iteration and simply sought world domination with an ice theme for its own sake.

Not realizing that the Jerry Gerbil they were speaking to was the actual Jerry Gerbil. Cloned to life with all the memories he should have if he was flesh and blood!
Unfortunately, things would take a dire turn for Wade Dazzle who would discover that he had a rare and incurable disease. Deciding the answer to this was cryogenic suspension until a cure could be found, Wade realized that the costs of maintaining such a system would bleed him dry.
Thus Wade Dazzle concieved of an elaborate plot to convert his theme parks into power plants by inventing a machine which would drain the essence from theme park goers, using them as living batteries to maintain his life. With a portion of that energy being used to power the duplicate manufacturer. Allowing him to create perfect copies of his victims who would go out into the world behaving as if they were entirely normal.

Abilities: Master of black magic capable of seemingly anything. Leads an army of fairy tale villains.
Backstory: Deep in astral space which is the outer space of the astral plane which is so thin that it connects to outer space, lay the planet of thought. A world that was the origin for all fairy tales such as Cinderella.
The nature of the planet of Thought was such that any events which occured there would send out thought waves, beaming directly into the brains of creatives who would produce creative works based on those events.
This would work in reverse as well, with writers on the planet of Thought chronicling stories that they received in dreams about Wonder Woman and other real life figures which the denizens of the Planet of Thought simply assumed were fictional themselves.
Upon this world lived Strogo. Wielder of dark magic which he stored within his wand, he was considered the mightiest practioner of dark magic on the World of Thought. Ruling a nation of witches, giants, goblins, and changlings.
However Strogo was suffering a great crisis. For the magic which Strogo and his people harnessed was powered by a rare mineral known as ‘Xium’ which was not only the source of all of their powers, but literally what made them the villains they were.
The worlds Xium supply nearly drained, Strogo and his people would do anything they could to get their hands on more. For should their supply run out, no one knew what could occur. Perhaps even death.
Thus Strogo and his army wielding what limited power they had to spare, began to wage war upon the other fairytale kingsoms of the Planet of Thought. Desperate to grasp the last vestiges of evil magic for the sake of their very survival.

However the march of progress and continuous advancement of human civilization would spell dire trouble for King Blotto and his people. As humans began developing jet engines and using planes which traveled the stratosphere, King Blottos people would go unnoticed by fast moving aviation which tore through, dispersing the ground which they walked upon and destroying the precious crops which they needed to live.

The planes would crash in the cloud kingdom and their occupants enslaved to work the fields which were destroyed by the aviators. With King Blotto certain that his peoples fate rested on an iron fist for showing any mercy could spell extinction for the Cloud People.

The kingpin of the Massachusetts crime scene. The avatar of the god of war. A magician who gives people demonic cyber forms in exchange for their souls.
So long as someone is paying them, Moot and Geoff could care less what their doing or who their working for. Villains who are all about the paycheck and having fun along the way.
