    Default Who besides Spidey has their own Sinister Six type team of bad guys?

    From a conversation at another site. We agreed Flash’s Rogues didn’t count, as the name is an umbrella term for well, his rogues gallery in general, w. some being more popular than others obviously.

    Villain teams (like the Injustice Society) for hero teams (like the JSA) we didn’t count either; we were looking for the rogues of individual heroes teaming up Sinister Six style, w. a name and everything.

    So, looking for teams within rogues galleries.
    Only one that sprung to mind was the Superman Revenge Squad.

    An early one would be the Fantastic Four's Frightful Four. The Wizard and the Trapster debuted as adversaries of the Torch. The Sandman of course was a Spider-man opponent



    More recently, there was the Intelligencia in Fall of the Hulks consisting of the Leader, the Red Ghost, M.O.D.O.K, the Wizard and Doom at the beginning but they had a falling out.&nbsp; The group's goal was to capture the best minds available and siphon off the knowledge with a re-engineered version of Doom's Liddleville Tech.&nbsp; &nbsp;They captured Reed, T'Challa, Doom, Hank McCoy and Hank Pym. Banner was the one they didn't get and he was out to foil their plans.



    Norman Osborn put together the Cabal during Dark Reign which included Fem-Loki, The Hood, Emma Frost, Doctor Doom and Namor. Emma and Namor dropped out and towards the end and Taskmaster was recruited to replace them.

    The Archie Sonic The Hedgehog comics had the Fearsome Foursome, which eventually evolved into the Destructix, as well as the Suppression Squad.

    The Fatal Five in the Legion of Super Heroes.

    I might also go with the Royal Flush Gang.

    I think restorative nostalgia is the number one issue with comic book fans.
    A fine distinction between two types of Nostalgia:

    Reflective Nostalgia allows us to savor our memories but accepts that they are in the past
    Restorative Nostalgia pushes back against the here and now, keeping us stuck trying to relive our glory days.

    The team wasn't given a name, but Typhoid Mary's crew really did a number on DD. Thus, giving Typhoid Mary the killing blow in the end:

    The X-Men don't tend to get a lot of these sorts of crews, per se. It's just rehashes of the Brotherhood or a group of mutant-hating villains that end up teaming up. When they do, they seldom get a "name/number" combo.

    However, the original run did have Factor Three, which featured Blob, Unus, and Changeling. Their number was supposed to be that they wanted to become the third world power behind the US and the USSR, though, and they had other agents like Vanisher, Ogre, and Banshee.

    The Mutant Master seemed to be exclusively recruiting people who fought the X-Men already to his cause, though.

    Again I’m not really looking for team on team stuff, but individual heroes who’s rogues team up against him or her.

    Spidey is pretty cool to begin with, but having his own team of villains always made him seem even cooler.
    But I do appreciate the replies though!

    Offhand, Flash's rogues gallery are often teamed up against Flash.

    Villainy Inc. was a Wonder Woman villain team against her.

    You could qualify the Arkham Inmates as a sort of team against Batsy. There's also the League of Assassins.

    In addition to the Superman Revenge Squad, there is also the Brainiac/Luthor team from Alan Moore's "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?" story. However that one is more of a bunch of villains running Superman through a gauntlet than a true villain team up, even though they are revealed to have been coordinated by a single plan.

    The Serpent Squad...

    ...and its successor, the Serpent Society...

    ...were principally Captain America foes. They migrated around the MU a bit, turning up in Iron Man, and The Thing's team-up book, Marvel Two-in-One among others. Cap, however, was their most consistent adversary. He often had help when dealing with them, but Cap was just as likely to take them on alone.

    Few people read more than the first 3.7 words of a post. Facts.

    I'll second the Flash's Rogues and Wonder Woman's Villany Inc.

    Hulk has the U-Foes.
