    For sure. A lot of people have mentioned Eclipso. I think of him primarily as a JLA foe too. Id also include Star Tsar. That was a fantastic arc.

    I've offered this on a duplicate thread, but I'll repeat it here: The Ultra-Humanite. With is body swapping surgical techniques, he should be the DCU's Below-Cosmic-Level Boogeyman Villain. He should have a network of agents, uncertain if they're working for the real UH, or if UH is just a myth used to control an organization. The heroes should be constantly paranoid anytime one of their associates acts a little off, wondering if their friend is now just the UH's latest husk to wear. Even master villains like Ras al Ghul, or Kobra should be constantly wondering if The Ultra-Humanite is walking around in their organization, waiting for the right opportunity to hollow out their central nervous system and assume their identity.

    Great choice. Of course, I always thought of Alpha Centurion as an updated and more nuanced alternative to Terra Man. A good writer can get any character taken seriously, but with AC, you have to work at it a bit less than with TM.

    imo. He's only heroic at his own convenience, and when it is no longer convenient he dips so far into villainy. It always seemed to me that selfishness and villainy is more in line with his nature than heroism.

    I mean maybe he's a little mad at the world due to being in a wheelchair, but I don't think that puts him in rogue status. He did after all put the Doom Patrol together and they do a lot of good, he can't be all bad.

    Via nefarious means

    Yes, but this reflect on them, not him. For the better part of the last 15 years or so they've been doing good without him, while he has either been actively against them or attempting to concoct a means of getting them back under his thumb. He consistently acts like A) He OWNS them and B) They OWE him. This does not a good guy make.

    Okay, weird way to respond, but sure. I think you should elaborate here, just so that we can better understand whatever it was you just posted.

    First, what were the nefarious means?
    Second, what are some examples of him consistently acting like that?

    There is absolutely nothing gained that warrants that sort of effort. Ok, you disagree, now on with our lives.

    If the tv show is any indication, I figured the strongest case for worst member of the Doom Patrol would go to Robotman.

    That's a great pitch and angle on the character. Would love to read more stories that emphasize those aspects.

    Here’s a few!

    Terra-Man, AKA The Terran With No Name
    - If you know how Erron Black rolls in the new Mortal Kombat games, that’s how The Terran rolls here... but replace “hired killer” with intergalactic robbery, for the sheer zaniness of a space cowboy trying to escape Superman. I’d have his history be as a partisan Civil War veteran very much along the lines of the James Gang, who’s modified his body to survive in space, give him a superhuman fast draw, and tamed himself a “space beastie” for a ride. Also, he has a personal history with Lobo and the Green Lanterns, and is a savvy “cowboy escape artist” that Clark is genuinely challenged to outthink.

    Shrike
    - Instead of just being an also-ran Nightwing villain, his lethality is kicked up a notch, as is his new job: he’s the “internal affairs” of the League of Assassins, in charge of killing any who break Ra’s Al Ghul’s rules or slaying any liability killers the employers don’t trust, since most of them are just regular ninja’s or killers, but not fighters. He loves using exotic weapons, though; that’s effectively his gimmick. The fact he usually kills other killers plays into how his stories roll; they’re about keeping a suspect alive against someone who’s very crafty at “tying up lose ends.”

    Kind if cheating, but...

    Fury
    - It’s a position and title that represents Ares’s Amazonian champion, and the original was his daughter Penesthiliea, the Amazon opponent of Achilles. The armor and weapons gifted to the champion make them an almost impossible agent of destruction, and they often act to encourage chaotic warfare. Part of the catch is trying to save the Amazon who either fell to the identity or is imprisoned by it.
