Characters whose super name or last name begin with A. Warning, spoilers are below.
Lord Alpa Ruler of Tritonis and the mermen, who pledges men to join with the Ocean Master's rebel army against the ruling King Orm. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed Lady Aleduren A noble in the court of King Arthur. She was married to Sir Caden, the Hawk Knight and attended King Arthur's wedding on the dais with the royal family. Appeared in Ultimate Demon Knights Current Status: Presumed deceased Ambush Bug (Irwin Schwab) A young inventor, hacker and information dealer in Hub City, Irwin Schwab's greatest discovery is a suit he wears that allows him to teleport from place to place. According to Schwab, using a chip that he implanted into his own brain, he is able to rip a hole in the universe to leap through and then within a half second, rip a second hole where he would return. Most others assume that he is in fact metahuman, a charge Schwab denies.
Ambush Bug takes on a greater role in combat starting with the group's encounter with Icicle (Cameron Mahkent), a name he applies to the crazed metahuman. While Catman takes on the bulk of the combat, it is Ambush Bug himself that is actually responsible for Mahkent's capture, teleporting above a water tower and tipping it over, freezing Mahkent in a giant ice cube.
He takes over as Hub City's primary protector when Catman leaves for Ashram, earning the ire of cult leader David Hersch who preaches an anti-metahuman gospel. Hersch sets up a scenario to capture Schwab, tricking him into saving a bus that appeared to be out of control and injecting him with a solution to knock him out. Schwab would have been killed if not for the timely intercession of Josiah Power, a member of ARGUS who wants Ambush Bug to turn over any further metahumans they capture directly to ARGUS rather than involving the police.
The VATF (Vigilante Apprehension Task Force) targets Ambush Bug upon its formation, hoping that the capture of AB and Guardian will lead to the apprehension of Catman. Ambush Bug is able to save Guardian from being killed by Mad Dog, although they have been unable thus far to shake the VATF who seem to know everything about their lives. Appeared in Ultimate Catman Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Catman Anarky First appeared in November of 2013 when he arranged for the resurrection of the Metropolis Hallowed Haunt. He had done this to re-inspire Matty Roth's social justice crusade by providing him with a reminder of the crusades he used to take on. The Haunt took place on a closed subway line, contrasting the partying of Metropolis' business and celebrity elite with the suffering of the people of Suicide Slum, who no longer had access to the train service. He continues assisting Roth by providing a private space for Roth to broadcast his message from and provides Roth with the information that Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine)'s powers are no longer working following his near assassination. Appeared in Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed Commissioner Amy Angotti The Metropolis Police Commissioner during Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine)'s two terms Appeared in: Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed The Angels Communicate with Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine) via dreams, on behalf of “The Architect”. It is unknown if these angels are connected to the angels of Heaven. Appeared in: Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed Aquaman (Arthur Curry) The child soon to be Arthur Curry first arrived on the surface world during Hurricane Daniel, brought from Atlantis by Poseidon. He was dropped off at the Curry Lighthouse to Thomas Curry, because Poseidon himself respected the man and knew he would raise Arthur to be a good man.
Arthur's early life is not easy, he is small and scrawny, and a target of bullies both teacher and student. This is enhanced in middle school when his Atlantean physiology starts to manifest. He develops gills behind his ears that allow him to breathe completely underwater, telepathic abilities that allows him to not only read minds, but also project thoughts into others. He also gains relative super speed (able to exceed 55 mph on land, even faster in the water), super strength (capable of lifting a car) and durability (where he's able to shrug off metahuman punches, bullets, needles and other attacks). These are accompanied by a growth spurt in high school that ends his bullying days, and turns him into a local star for the football team.
Arthur first gets his first sense of being a super hero when he saves his father from Psimon's assault on the hospital. He again rises to the occasion the next month when Shimmer and Mammoth start a riot at the Queensland Boardwalk he and his friends are visiting. He is able to defeat both Australians through great effort. Arthur next finds himself at the scene of an attempted assassination on mayoral candidate Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine) that turns into a battle between a sniper, Hundred's security, a bunch of innocent protesters and Jinx, an unstable metahuman with the ability to affect probability..
The next change in Arthur's life comes when he first meets Garth, an Atlantean from the Hidden Valley, who snuck up to the surface world, believing Arthur to be the subject of the “Prophecy of the Unifier”. It is in the Hidden Valley that Arthur gets the first taste of the paranoid and distrustful Atlanteans, when the King of the Hidden Valley sells Arthur out to King Orm of Poseidonis, who intends to have the boy executed before he can fulfill the prophecy. Arthur outsmarts him by reading his mind (a thing that most Atlanteans cannot do) and demands trial by combat, which he aces.
It is during Arthur's incarceration in Poseidonis that Arthur meets his birth mother, Atlanna, who constantly tries to intercede on Arthur's behalf when Orm seeks to have him eliminated. Arthur remains a threat to Orm's hold on Atlantis, not just because he is a rival for the throne, but he is also an outsider, an Orin, and his constant one-upping of Orm in combat and in the throne room diminishes the withering respect the people have for Orm. In order to quell this, Arthur is forbidden to return to the surface and enrolled in the Conservatory of War, to make him a proper, if low level, Atlantean soldier.
While underwater, Arthur gains a final new asset, where he appears to have earned, without asking the loyalty of the animals of the sea. Sharks and whales will intercede on his behalf, calling him Lord and understanding his language, another thing most Atlanteans cannot do.
Arthur finally becomes the target of the rebellion currently going on in Poseidonis, where the Ocean Master, a man named Vulko, tasks his Xebellian assistant Mera to find him and bring him to their side. Her attempt confuses Arthur and leads him to return to the ocean, where further disaster strikes. As Hurricane Robert pounds the east coast, Arthur returns to Amnesty Bay where he finds himself in combat with Black Manta, and then Orm, defeating them both.
Arthur realizes his life will always be dangerous, and decides to break things off with Jenna and return to the sea, where he will take over the throne of Poseidonis, and fulfill the prophecy.
In 2015, Arthur is one of the four heroes chosen by Doctor Fate to intercede in the battle between the Kryptonian forces and those of ARGUS. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Justice League, Unclaimed for solo series* The Architect Responsible for Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine)'s transformation, and appears to direct Hundred toward certain activities – first the Aether Harvester to create a power source, then a garden. Jack Pherson claimed he too was changed by the Architect to become “The Shepard”, but this was not confirmed by The Architect. It is unknown if the Architect is or is connected to the God that The Spectre serves. Appeared in Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed Atlan A former king of Atlantis, and the supposed father of Orm, Atlan was in fact infertile, despite attempts to have children with multiple women. Atlanna eventually has an affair of her own with Poseidon, giving birth to Arthur Curry (Aquaman), and also taking her sister's bastard son as well. Atlan wants no part of either child, but realizes he needs an heir and decides to keep Orm, especially since Arthur would seem to fit the profile of The Unifier. He is later allegedly murdered by Orm. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Deceased Queen Atlanna The Queen Mother of Poseidonis, Atlanna has crafted the appearance that Orm is her son, and Arthur Curry (Aquaman) is not. Though she is forced to admit that Arthur is in fact hers, she is forced to keep up the appearance of having been unfaithful to the late King, while continuing to acknowledge Orm as hers to keep his waning legitimacy on the throne. Atlanna actually did have an affair with the God Poseidon, that gave birth to Arthur, but Atlan was no more faithful than she. When Atlan ordered Arthur killed, fearing he might fulfill the prophecy of unification, Atlanna appealed to Poseidon to save the child, and had him brought to the surface world where he might begin the process of becoming The One. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed

Characters whose super name or last name begin with C. Warning, spoilers are below.
Cableman (Real Name Unknown) Hired by Mayor Armand Krol and Police Commissioner Kristen Kramer to be a member of the VATF (Vigilante Apprehension Task Force) in Hub City to target the city's vigilante problem, specifically looking to put Catman (Thomas Blake), Guardian (William Cayce) and Ambush Bug (Irwin Schwab) out of operation. Cableman appears to recognize Kitrina Falcone by sight and by name when he sees her after the VATF raids Cayce's apartment, but how he knows her remains unspecified. Appeared in Ultimate Catman Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Catman Sir Cadon the Hawk Knight One of the Knights of the Round Table. Sir Cadon was invited to join King Arthur on the dais during King Arthur's wedding. The Knights had a program where a different knight sat with the King at each function, to give each of them some personal time with the King they fought for. He was married to Lady Aleduren. Appeared in Ultimate Demon Knights Current Status: Presumed Deceased Calabraxis A demon who was once Jack the Ripper, disguising his acquisition of souls via ritual sacrifice as the workings of a deranged serial killer. He alleged to have the aid of a demon called Barbatos in luring the women to him, but whether this is true, or if he was acquiring the souls in the service of Barbatos is unknown. He emerges in 2012, targeting the soul of John Constantine and ritually murders a young woman John had a one night stand with. He also threatens Constantine's father Thomas. Knowing he is outmatched in a fight, Constantine is forced to sell his soul to Blaxothi, and attempt to induce Blaxothi to kill Calabraxis in his stead. Blaxothi does, but the terms of the contract he signed with Constantine prevents the demon from collecting. Appeared in Ultimate Hellblazer Current Status: Deceased Catgirl (Kitrina Falcone) Kitrina has lived a very difficult and troubled life, though much of it remains obscured. It is generally believed that she was kept as a sex slave for Mario Falcone, and she believes herself to be his daughter, although there appears to be no record of a "Kitrina Falcone" anywhere in the city. William Cayce (Guardian) theorizes that she may believe herself to be a Falcone as a defense mechanism, and it is highly unlikely that she even remembers her original last name. Cableman, one of the members of Hub City's VATF (Vigilante Apprehension Task Force), appears to recognize her, and addresses her by name when he assault's Guardian's home. It is uncertain how he knows her, however.
Catman rescues her and brings her back to Guardian's home for safety, the group planning to help her get over her trauma and reintegrated back into society. She seems to latch onto Thomas very quickly, but she eventually comes around to the others when he leaves for Ashram, and in fact finds herself becoming a useful member of the team.
She is given the nickname "Catgirl" by Thomas, though she has not used it herself, or appeared in the field. Appeared in Ultimate Catman Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Catman Catman (Thomas Blake) (History in Progress)
When Blake decides to reform, he finds himself moving to Hub City with no home and no plan. Sleeping on the streets at night, he travels the streets by day in cobbled-together armor, trying to stop crime as he finds it. It is during one of his missions that he encounters William Cayce (The Guardian), and after accidentally confusing him for a criminal, the pair fight off a group of Mario Falcone's goons and save a bunch of children destined for very unpleasant ends.
Realizing their interests align, Blake becomes Catman, protector of the Hub, using the resources and information already gained by Guardian, and his ally Ambush Bug (Irwin Schwab). This includes the Siberian, an armored car of Guardian's design that they use to get around the city, and electrically charged escrima sticks (which Catman calls batons), that are Catman's primary weapon outside of his fists.
The group initially tackles Mario Falcone, the primary mob figure that controls most of Hub City's criminal activity. Catman assaults his skyscraper fortress and fights his way up floor by floor as he takes out Falcone's goons. It's during this ascent that he meets Kitrina Falcone, the abused possible daughter of Mario, and rescues her. He also encounters Mario directly, and after surviving the assault from Falcone's elite guards, sends a very strong message to Mario - get out of the Hub. For the moment, it appears Catman was successful, but Guardian suspects Falcone could return at any time.
Catman next takes on Cameron Mahkent (Icicle), a petty thief who robs a bank, only to have his metahuman powers activated. Declaring himself a god, Mahkent turns his attack on the city, only to be faced down by Catman, Guardian and Ambush Bug. Though Catman battles with Icicle directly, it is ultimately Ambush Bug that defeats him.
After realizing he is woefully untrained to be taking on threats of Icicle's level, Catman makes the decision to leave Hub City for awhile, seeking greater training so that he can really make a difference. He approaches his ex-wife Jade, knowing that she and her allies have had training that could be useful. While reuniting with his son Tommy Jr. and arranging for the training, Catman is targeted for revenge by Peter Lomax, an old criminal associate. The pair had been in a gang together, planning to target an armored car. Blake abandoned the job, but Lomax and the gang opted to continue, only to have it blow up in their faces. Now seeking revenge on Blake, Lomax targets not only Blake himself, but also his family, which includes Green Arrow, Black Canary and the other protectors of Star City by extension. After a difficult battle, Lomax is defeated. Having earned if nothing else, begrudging respect from Jade and her allies for his attempts to become a better person, he is directed to an Ashram in Columbia.
It is here in the Ashram that Catman spends the next few months, taking on the name Stray Cat and becoming a hunter. He is joined in this quest by a mysterious woman named Onyx, with whom he falls in love. During this training, he never forgets Hub City and remains focused on returning, even as he gets caught up in a war between the teachings of Ashram itself, and a splinter movement, the Monkey Fist Brotherhood. Appeared in Ultimate Birds of Prey, Ultimate Catman, Ultimate Green Arrow Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Catman Chas Chandler One of John Constantine's drinking buddies and a member of the Newcastle Crew that survived both the 1993 and 2013 appearances of Jallakuntilliokan. He doesn't appear to have much in the line of magical powers, and was not directly involved in the first battle, staying in the car to watch out for any other cult members that might have arrived to reinforce those already inside. In the second battle, he is forced to kill his friend Peter North, when North succumbs to Jallakuntilliokan's control. Appeared in Ultimate Hellblazer Current Status: Unclaimed Cicada (David Hersch) A cult leader that operates in Hub City, Hersch has a strong anti-metahuman message in his sermons, blaming them for the ills of society. He goes so far as to set up an incident in the city to draw Ambush Bug (Irwin Schwab) into an ambush, pretending a bus he was driving has gotten completely out of control. When Schwab teleports in and brings the bus under control, Hersch attacks him with a syringe and knocks him unconscious. But before Hersch is able to do anything to Schwab, Josiah Power interferes and saves him. Appeared in Ultimate Catman Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Catman Brian Collins Another one of Arthur Curry (Aquaman)'s close high school friends. Dimwitted and impulsive, Brian was a transfer student who quickly became a part of Arthur's high school clique. As Jenna and Arthur get closer, Brian becomes more and more of a third wheel, until he reveals he's just trying to spend as much time as possible with his best friends before shipping out with the Navy, having enlisted while Arthur and Jenna were focused on selecting colleges. He sends a letter to Arthur suggesting he is adjusting to life there, but neither Arthur or Jenna seem convinced. It's unknown if either are able to follow up with Brian. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed John Constantine A magical con man, he relies more on his smarts, ability to grift and knowledge than he does his magical capacity in order to battle demons. He also has something of a reputation in demonic circles, and many would prefer not to entangle with him at all. In 1993, he and his Newcastle Crew encountered the first appearance of the otherworldly Jallakuntilliokan, losing several members before reciting an incantation that sent it away for twenty years. In 2012, he was first hired by an old couple who were concerned that their grandchild was possessed. It turned out he was, by the child's late parents. He convinces them that they must depart for the afterlife or else risk having their young child appear insane. Shortly after he was targeted by Calabraxis, a demon best known for being Jack the Ripper and desiring his soul. Calabraxis is killed before he's able to do anything with it, however. After a brief battle with Papa Midnite alongside an old ally Mister E, Constantine must reunite the surviving members of the Newcastle Crew to battle the returning Jallakuntilliokan. It's not John himself who actually does the saving however, though he is the one who convinces Crazy Jane to enter the portal in the hopes that she might be the one to bring victory. Appeared in Ultimate Hellblazer Current Status: Unclaimed Thomas Constantine Father to John, he lost his wife and daughter when his wife died in childbirth. He and John do not get along, being polar opposites personally. They only get together one time a year. The demon Calabraxis targets him as a way to bait John Constantine to battle, but John is able to arrange for Calabraxis' destruction before he ever acts on it. It is unknown if Thomas was ever aware that his life was being threatened. Appeared in Ultimate Hellblazer Current Status: Unclaimed Crazy Jane (Kay Challis) A member of John Constantine's Newcastle Crew, she is involved in the first battle against Jallakuntilliokan, and her mind is absolutely destroyed by the encounter. She is committed to a mental institution shortly afterward after having a complete mental break, which gave rise to 60 separate personalities. Some of these include: Crazy Jane, Baby Doll, Rain Brain, Spinning Jenny, Black Annis, Scarlet Harlot, Mama Pentacost Sun Daddy, Flit, The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, Pepper's Ghost, the Weird Sisters, Lucy Fugue, Driver 8, The Secretary, Jill-in-Irons, The Engineer, Merry Andrew and Penny Farthing. She envisions her mind as a hotel, where 59 of the personalities reside while the one in control is "on stage". Crazy Jane appears to be the most dominant, but cedes to others when their skill sets are more useful in a given situation. During the return of Jallakuntilliokan, Constantine convinces Crazy Jane to enter the portal directly, where she and her other personalities make contact with the entity's mother. The species is apparently pacifistic, outside of Jallkuntilliokan himself, and the mother quickly reclaims her son at Crazy Jane's request. When Jane returns to our world however, she no longer appears as Kay Challis, but as Crazy Jane had envisioned herself in Kay's mind. What this means for Kay is unknown. Appeared in Ultimate Hellblazer Current Status: Unclaimed Thomas Curry One of a series of Curry men to watch over the Amnesty Bay Lighthouse, Thomas has been going out to sea since he was four years old. After graduating high school, he joined the military, where he was stationed in Portsmouth. While the coast was being ravaged by Hurricane Brian, Poseidon brought him a young child, whom he named Arthur Curry (Aquaman) and raised to adulthood. Thomas remains a source of strength for Arthur throughout his life, imparting much wisdom. Thomas is killed when Black Manta attacks and destroys the lighthouse during another hurricane.. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Deceased

Characters whose super name or last name begin with D. Warning, spoilers are below.
The D.E.O. (The Department of Extranormal Operations) (History in progress) A government agency, the DEO was once responsible for the acquisition and detention of dangerous metahumans. The prisoners in the DEO's possession were at some point transferred to the authority of ARGUS. The current status of the DEO in the US Government appears to be unknown at this time. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unknown Parco Delgado Boro President of Southside in Metropolis. Delgado appears to have had a manslaughter charge stricken from his record at the age of 18. It is implied that this was done due to some outside influence of Bruno Mannheim, which allowed Delgado to rise to the position of Boro President at the expense of letting Mannheim do as he pleased in Southside. Appeared in Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed Jenna DeMarco Arthur Curry (Aquaman)'s childhood best friend who eventually develops into the first love of his life, Jenna has always seemed to have a crush on Arthur, to which he is oblivious. She even chooses to attend school at Metropolis University rather than Princeton in the hopes that they might get together. She is also the first to learn about Arthur's abilities and origin, helping him to adjust and making him feel normal. Jenna is frequently in harms way when Arthur winds up in battles with various supervillains, which causes both her and Arthur considerable stress. She is often left hanging for significant periods of time waiting to see if he even survived the confrontation. That fact, coupled with the fact that she would always be in danger if she were to stay with him ultimately breaks the pair up, as difficult a choice as it is for the both of them to come to. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed Doctor Fate (Hector Hall) (History in progress) The latest in a line of magical protectors of the world, Doctor Fate is the mantle of the man or woman who wields the Helm of Fate. Doctor Fate is charged with keeping a balance, and cannot interfere in everything that goes on despite having the power to do so, knowing that sometimes changing what is fated to happen can lead to worse results than what the original course would have lead to. But this does not prevent fate from acting at all.
A wearer of the Helm in 1571 was instrumental in holding back the attack of Neron and Mordru in Rome, although this was at the cost of the wearer's life. Jason Blood (Etrigan the Demon) was then charged with finding the next worthy man or woman to give the helm to. In 2015, though Hector Hall was unwilling to step in during the Kryptonian invasion, the helm was briefly assumed by Zatanna Zatara, who summoned Aquaman, Batman, Green Arrow and Wonder Woman to step into the battle between the Kryptonian forces and ARGUS. Appeared in Ultimate Birds of Prey, Ultimate Demon Knights, Ultimate Green Arrow, Ultimate Justice League Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Green Arrow, Ultimate Justice League Doomsday A hyper intelligent and highly destructive clone created by Professor Emile Hamilton in the CADMUS project that grew faster and stronger than any of the others due to a genetic mutation. It was unleashed upon the Kryptonian refugee ship, intending to wipe the Kryptonians out. It was nearly successful, killing many, but ultimately sent into the Phantom Zone where it promised it would get out and resume it's destruction of not only the Kryptonians, but ultimately all of Earth. This incident was the trigger for the Kryptonian War. Appeared in Ultimate Superman Current Status: Trapped in Phantom Zone Sir Lancelot du Lac Most notable of the Knights of the Round Table, and popular with the ladies. In his youth, Jason Blood (Etrigan the Demon) was jealous with Lancelot's ease with women and skill in the battlefield. Lancelot was not afraid to rub it in, although he did show some pity toward Blood when the young mage would get left behind instead of being able to go into battle.

Characters whose super name or last name begin with E. Warning, spoilers are below.
Etrigan the Demon (Jason Blood) Born in a humble peasant village in Arthurian England, Jason was able from a young age to wield magic. He was brought to Camelot to learn at the hand of Merlin, where he became an accomplished mage. During his stay, he became involved with King Arthur's sister Morgaine, who he began to teach magic in secret. He also becomes close to Arthur's youngest sister Nimue. Blood's relationship with Morgaine is tested, because the young woman craves more and more power, especially of the kind that he refuses to teach her. So she investigates on her own and murders Jason as part of a ritual, binding him for eternity to the rhyming demon Etrigan.
When Jason utters the phrase “Gone, gone the form of man, arise the demon Etrigan” Blood is sent to Hell and Etrigan takes his place. Even when Etrigan is not active, he can converse (and most likely taunt) Blood, often trying to goad him into summoning Etrigan to Earth.
After the fall of Camelot, Blood leaves England for Europe and Asia, traveling around and going where he was needed. But when a rebellion is sparked in his home country, Jason returns, encountering Robin Hood and his Merry Men. He also encounters Maid Marion, who he recognizes as Nimue Pendragon in another identity. In the years following Morgaine's betrayal, Jason and Nimue became close and intimate... only to drift apart. This is the first time in some time that they have seen each other. But as with the myth, Maid Marion is involved with the blusterous Robin of Loxley, better known as Robin Hood, who is locked in battle with Prince John and his henchmen, the Sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Guy of Gisbourne. Blood, Robin and everyone are successful in overcoming Prince John, even after Lady Blaze, another faction ruler in Hell becomes involved and makes a deal with Sir Guy.
Jason's story continues a thousand years after the binding, where he finds himself in Germany, employed as a witch hunter. But this is no scare, the women in fact had sold their souls to Lord Satanus. One of the young women has a son, Klarion that Jason takes on when it appears the young boy has magical aptitude. But betrayal isn't too far off for Jason, and Klarion turns on him in exchange for power, much as his wife had.
In 2013, Jason Blood is more or less retired, drawn back into the game when a series of ritual murders strike the Gotham University campus. He tracks the murders to a demon-possessed Dawn Granger, a young woman with amazing powers. After needing to invoke Etrigan, he is able to exorcise the demon, but given his experiences with Klarion and Morgaine, Blood rebuffs Grangers request for help with her magic.
This bites him on the ass when Klarion emerges in Gotham, targeting Dawn and planning to take control of her himself to sew chaos throughout the Earth. Though Etrigan does his best to save her, it is Dawn herself that ends Klarion's control. Realizing his mistake, Blood agrees to take her under his wing.
Dawn continues to find herself a target of demonic assault when Lady Blaze returns with a demonic Sir Guy for revenge, not only on Jason Blood, but also Nimue Pendragon, now going by the name Madam Xanadu. But Blaze is also looking for Dawn Granger who appears to play a central role in the new age that's coming, but even Jason Blood cannot say for sure why she's so pivotal to things that demons are willing to break the rules of Hell itself and threaten the wrath of Heaven just to get her.

Firefly (Ted Carson) Originally a wealthy dilettante with a history of arson, Firefly's family was bankrupted by the economic crash of 2008. He now works as a hired hand, thug and arsonist, frequently for Bruno Mannheim. He was first hired to steal the Invisibility Block and the Hush Block from Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine), and paid $40,000 for the job. He attempted to cover his tracks by burning down Hundred's apartment (though he only scorches the living room). He later appears to threaten Matty Roth (and by extension his girlfriend Zee Hernandez) for investigating the Aether Harvester.

Characters whose super name or last name begins with G. Warning, spoilers below.
Gal'en Another student at the Conservatory of War. He is the son of Glorid'en and quickly becomes the new bully in Arthur Curry (Aquaman)'s life. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed Glorid'en The Champion of Poseidonis, faces Arthur Curry (Aquaman)in his trial by combat. Arthur beats him in one punch. He has a son who attends the Conservatory of War. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed Dawn Granger A student at Gotham University, Dawn possesses immense magical abilities, perhaps even greater than Jason Blood (Etrigan the Demon)'s. This has made her a target for numerous demons, even some of the leaders in Hell. Lucifer Morningstar, the ruler of Hell knows why specifically everyone targets Dawn, but he would not reveal the reason to Blood. Dawn initially appealed to Blood for training, wanting to become his apprentice, but he initially refused. This allowed Blood's renegade former apprentice Klarion the Witch Boy to step in and try to use her for his own chaotic ends. In the aftermath of an attack Klarion induced Dawn to make that damaged much of Gotham's business district, Jason Blood finally relented and agreed to teach her how to use her abilities. Thanks to this, she was at least somewhat capable of defending herself when Lady Blaze broke the accord between Heaven and Hell and sent an army to Earth to claim Dawn for her own. Appeared in Ultimate Demon Knights Current Status: Unclaimed Mercy Graves One of Lex Luthor's Amazonian bodyguards. She is put to work battling against Power Girl during the latter's investigation into the ARGUS facility outside of Metropolis alongside Superman. She later bonds with Power Girl by allowing the Kryptonian to join she and Mercy in their solstice celebration at Lex Luthor's family home. Lex is helping her and her sister find another sister who has gone missing in return for her bodyguard service. Appeared in Ultimate Superman Current Status: Unclaimed Great Machine (Mitchell Hundred) A veteran of the war in Afghanistan, Hundred gained the power to communicate with machines while serving his tour. This event appears to have been arranged by The Architect, who is using Hundred to build structures on Earth he conveys in dreams. When Hundred returns home from the war, he puts his new powers to use and becomes The Great Machine, a jet powered superhero in Metropolis. He was instrumental in defeating Brainiac's New Years Eve 2006 destruction of Metropolis. Unmasking shortly afterward, Hundred decided to run for Mayor instead, believing he could do more to protect the people and rebuild the city as Mayor than he could as a costumed hero. He wins election in 2008 and 2012. It is unknown if he will run again in 2016.
Hundred begins the first of the Architect's projects by putting the Aether Harvester in Southside, a device that will provide free electricity to the suffering people of Suicide Slum. Jack Pherson (The Shepard), an old enemy from his Great Machine days, returns to Metropolis to spoil the announcement of this great project, by using his ability to control animals to manipulate them into attacking Hundred in a series of increasingly dangerous assaults. These attacks culminate in a host of birds dive bombing the residents of the city, killing many. Upon defeating and nearly killing Pherson, Hundred attempts to bring the city back together again by delivering an impassioned speech. He cannot avoid tragedy however as the Rainbow Archer attempts to assassinate Hundred during this speech. The arrows do not kill him, but do sever his connection to machines altogether when he wakes up from his coma.
This does not stop Hundred from engaging the next plan of The Architect, by hiring Jason Woodrue to help build a garden that would feed all of Metropolis. He also begins an affair with Woodrue's assistant Susan Linden-Thorne despite being in a committed relationship with reporter Susan Padilla. He also becomes more and more indebted to mobster Bruno Mannheim, who provides him services (donating the land for the Aether Harvester, threatening Hundred's reporter friend Matty Roth when he gets too close to discovering it, and arranging for the assassination attempt to help boost Hundred's popularity). Hundred is aware his life is beginning to get out of control, but seems helpless to stop it.
Presumed Democrat. Appeared in Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed The Guardian (William Cayce) William Cayce was a medic in the Marine Corp, he served his country until he was injured in the line of duty and honorably discharged. Returning home to Hub City, he learned that his niece had been killed in a wave of violence that had swept through the city. Blaming this on the source of the crime, mob boss Mario Falcone, Cayce devoted his life to cleaning up the city so that no others would suffer the same fate.
He put his all into the new job, gaining an ally in Irwin Schwab (Ambush Bug) a local information merchant, hacker and inventor. But it's not until Cayce allies with Catman (Thomas Blake), that he's able to put the myriad plans that litter his apartment into action, first targeting Mario Falcone himself and running him out of town.
Cayce generally drives the Siberian, an armored and weaponized car of his own design, while Catman takes the front line, but when Catman leaves for Ashram, Cayce takes on the identity of The Guardian, and begins protecting Hub City more directly alongside Ambush Bug.
It is here that he raises the ire of the VATF, the Vigilante Apprehension Task Force, created by Hub City's mayor Armand Krol and Hub City Police Commissioner Kristen Kramer to specifically put a stop to the actions of Catman, Guardian and Ambush Bug. They begin to battle the VATF throughout the city, which leads to the VATF discovering his apartment, nearly destroying it. Appeared in Ultimate Catman Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Catman Sir Guy of Gisbourne An ally of Prince John in 1193 and in the employ of the Sheriff of Nottingham, Sir Guy sells his soul to Lady Blaze after failing to kill Robin Hood with a squad of 30 men. Forced into the position when the Sheriff threatens him, he offers his soul in exchange for the power to overcome Robin Hood, Maid Marion (Madam Xanadu), and Jason Blood (Etrigan the Demon). Even the extra power does little to assist him, as he meets his end when Marion slits his throat in battle shortly thereafter.
Sir Guy comes back to Earth as part of Lady Blaze's demon army in 2013, and he immediately seeks revenge upon Xanadu for his earlier death, but he is sent back to Hell with the rest of the army by Lucifer Morningstar, unable to get his revenge.

Characters whose super name or last name begins with I. Warning, spoilers below.
Icicle (Cameron Mahkent)
A petty thug, Cameron Mahkent appeared headed down the same path as his father despite the efforts of his mother to steer him on the straight and narrow. But everything changed after he was taken into custody by Catman after attempting to rob the Hub City National Bank. While in police custody, Josiah Power appears before him and gives him a soda. Immediately afterward, Mahkent appears to manifest metahuman powers, encasing his entire body in ice. He is also able to project blasts of ice initially just from his mouth, but soon also from his hands.
Declaring himself a god, Mahkent lays out a challenge to Catman by freezing a young reporter and shattering her on live television, leading to a citywide battle against Catman and Ambush Bug. When the latter teleports him up into the air intending to drop him, Mahkent learns that he can use the ice to slow his fall and allow him to survive. He initially attempts to complete the bank robbery, but deciding he's beyond that he goes home to show off to his mother, accidentally killing her by freezing her body completely.
Now fueled by rage, Icicle rampages across the city, until he is lured into position by Catman and Ambush Bug teleports him into the path of a collapsing water tower, freezing Mahkent in ice. He is initially taken into custody once more by the Hub City police, but Josiah Power shows up once again and pulls rank, taking Mahkent into custody.
It should be noted that Icicle is a nickname applied by Ambush Bug, Mahkent never refers to himself that way. Appeared in Ultimate Catman Current Status: Public Claim, Prisoner of ARGUS

Characters whose super name or last name begins with J. Warning, spoilers below.
Jallakuntilliokan An entity from another dimension, Jallakuntilliokan is able to telepathically communicate with its followers that have formed a cult around worship of it. It appears to be a warrior in a world of pacifists. This is why it seeks to conquer our dimension. Jallakuntilliokan is first summoned to Earth in 1993, where many of the Newcastle Crew of John Constantine battle it, and are either killed or severely warped by the experience.

She is a college classmate of Arthur Curry (Aquaman) and Jenna DeMarco. She is involved in the protest movement on campus, focused on preventing Mayor Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine)'s initial campaign, because she considers him to be a murderer, a war criminal and a vigilante (the last of course, being true since he was the Great Machine, the other two have not been proven).
Ada has the ability to manipulate probability and she becomes especially enraged when a mysterious figure sneaks aboard her protest vessel in an attempt to assassinate Mitchell Hundred before he can run. When security fires back, several of the protesters are killed. This infuriates Jinx, who had no idea of the event that triggered it, and assumes Hundred's security fired first attempting to silence them. In the end, her attack on Hundred fails, and she is taken into custody by ARGUS.

Appeared in Ultimate Superman Current Status: Public Claim, Works for ARGUS Kalder'ahm Kalder'ahm is a powerful student of the Conservatory of War who is an Orin, like Arthur Curry (Aquaman). The pair are originally adversaries, forced by their shared outsider status to fight one another for the scraps of respect being offered up by the Atlanteans. But they are both pushed too far and become allies against the racism of the Conservatory, going so far as to battle together before Arthur escapes to the surface. It is unknown is he faces any backlash for his role in the fracas. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed Klarion the Witch Boy A chaos magician, Klarion enjoys battle for the sake of it, despite Jason Blood (Etrigan the Demon)'s attempts to instill in him a sense of moral right and wrong to his magical use. Klarion was born with magical powers, having inherited them from his mother, who sold her soul to Lord Satanus. Blood saved Klarion from the wrath of the other villagers and took him on as an apprentice.
In 1571 Klarion becomes dissatisfied with not only the level of magic Blood was teaching, but the futility of Blood's mission – and still a little bitter over the death of his mother at Blood's hand, so he takes Mordru's offer to betray Blood, freeing him in exchange for all the power he could want and the freedom to do whatever Klarion desired.

Lois is responsible for inspiring Clark Kent to get into journalism, and the pair have had an on/off relationship for years, which is currently off. Lane is headstrong and reluctant to get into a long-term relationship by her own description.
She is aware of Clark's identity as Superman, which is another cause of difficulty in their relationship. Lois is selected by General Dru-Zod to be the first human to get a look at their spaceship, via a live broadcast on the news. She was chosen for her closeness to Superman, as well as to assuage the concerns of her father about the Kryptonian people's intentions.

He had become a member of a gang run by Catman (Thomas Blake), rising up to be Blake's second in command. But when Blake has a change of heart just prior to a job they were about to run, Lomax decides to run the operation himself. After stealing several containers, and unaware that they have tracking devices, he winds up bringing the police down on a mob held warehouse.
In retribution, the mob boss who hired him executes Lomax's wife and two children. This breaks Lomax completely, and devoted to revenge, he learns to use a bow and arrow with deadly precision. He murders the mob boss in cold blood and takes over his entire operation, devoting it completely to the death of Thomas Blake and all he holds dear, since Lomax holds Blake responsible for the death of his family.
Lomax follows Blake back to Star City when Blake seeks out his ex-wife for help with training. Sensing his opportunity for revenge, he attacks Jade with poison-tipped arrows. This begins an open war lead by Lomax and his associates against Catman, Jade and her Star City allies. Lomax appears ready to wipe them all out, but is ultimately stopped by Catman. Appeared in Ultimate Catman Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Catman Lena Luthor Lex's sister, and mother to Lori. Lena has largely cut off all ties with her family, and her brother, believing that he has become too much like his and her father. She was married to a deadbeat, that Lex convinced to go away. She now raises her daughter Lori as a single mother, though she does take some money from Lex for Lori's care, especially now that she has developed cancer. Though Lena wants nothing to do with Lex, she does allow Lex to visit on Lori's birthday, and on Christmas, so that he may visit with his niece. Appeared in Ultimate Superman Current Status: Unclaimed Lex Luthor The businessman responsible for rebuilding Metropolis following the Brainiac Assault in 2006, he takes personal responsibility for keeping the city going, believing that his father drained the city for his own enrichment. This dedication to the city prompted Mitchell Hundred (Great Machine) to give him the key to the city in 2012, just prior to Hundred's reelection. Hundred is aware of Luthor's scheming and sometimes less than benevolent nature, but keeps on good terms with him all the same. Luthor's relationship with Metropolis' other heroes Superman (Clark Kent) and Power Girl (Karen Starr) is MUCH more adversarial. The pair of heroes are also more proactive in terms of attempting to put a stop to Luthor's schemes.
Luthor runs LuthorCorp, which has branches all over the country.
Lex is directly involved in the creation of Metallo, and co-opted Corbin's body when he returned for revenge some years later for use in the ARGUS army that would attack the invading Kryptonians. He was also directly involved in the creation of Bizarro, a failed clone of Superman that nearly wrecked Metropolis while believing it was the Man of Steel. In both cases, Luthor made a point to secure the bodies for further research and exploitation as a member of ARGUS. When Superman and Power Girl invade the facility outside of Metropolis, Luthor is the one who leads the defensive charge, pitting his bodyguards against Power Girl and a Metallo-suited KGBeast against the Man of Steel. Appeared in Ultimate Ex Machina, Ultimate Superman, Ultimate Justice League, Ultimate Secret Six Current Status: Claimed in Ultimate Justice League, Ultimate Secret Six Lionel Luthor The father of Lex and Lena, Lionel was seemingly a difficult, cold and callous man. He was responsible, in Lex's eyes, for the destruction of Metropolis long before the Brainiac Incident and one of the reasons why he works so hard to restore the city to greatness. It was suggested that had he lived, he would have bled the city dry and then simply moved on, taking no responsibility for the lives left ruined in his wake. Lena also seemingly despised the man, but sees far too much of an influence in her own brother as well, which is the primary source of tension among the siblings. Appeared in Ultimate Superman Current Status: Deceased Lori Luthor Lex's niece, who asked for Superman and Power Girl to come to Christmas dinner in 2014. She's 13 years old and is battling cancer. She is receiving the best care possible, thanks in part to her Uncle Lex taking care of all the payments, but the treatments for it have confined her to a wheelchair. She makes frequent trips to Metropolis General hospital to receive these treatments, which Lex believes will have a positive outcome, despite his family's genetic tendency toward cancer.

This transformed him into a mercenary for hire worldwide, while he attempted to have the fail-safes and other contingency programs that Luthor build into his new body removed. Unknown to Corbin however, Luthor had in fact been tracking every one of these moves, and by paying off his benefactors, Luthor gained complete control of his body, turning Metallo into a weapon Luthor could turn on and off at will, and Corbin is again Luthor's puppet and currently being used as a prototype to mass produce attack robots designed to defeat the Kryptonians.

It turns out that Garth and Amy had dabbled in demon summoning, and had brought a demon into the world that they spent a fair amount of time torturing and teasing before they completely forgot about it. The demon then returned some years later, seeking revenge, and cast a bad luck spell upon the pair, just as they were about to give birth to Jaime. After suffering increasingly dangerous accidents, Garth and Amy cast a spell binding their souls to Jaime, then they committed suicide. This freed them from the demon's grasp but presented a greater problem... a child that would grow up thinking he could talk with his dead parents, which would only make his life miserable in the long run.

John Constantine (see individual entry under C)
Benjamin Cox The lone American of the Newcastle Crew, Benjamin has a nervous breakdown following the original Newcastle incident. He never leaves his mother's home, although he stays in contact with Crazy Jane via the phone, and contacts the rest of the crew when he learns that Jallakuntilliokan is coming back, having kept an eye on the cult via their internet forums. The reality of having to face off against the creature again becomes too much for Cox and he commits suicide after relaying the information to Constantine and the others
Crazy Jane (Kay Challis) (see individual entry under C)
Emma (Last Name Unknown) John Constantine's girlfriend at the time of the original Newcastle incident. She is grabbed by Jallakuntilliokan and pulled into the portal, ordering Constantine to focus on sending the demon back rather than saving her.
Sister Anne Marie Flynn Anne Marie became a nun almost immediately after the original Newcastle incident of 1993, but she still comes to Constantine's aid when Jallakuntilliokan returns in 2013, though she strongly disapproves of the way Constantine ultimately resolves this issue by involving Crazy Jane.
Judith (Last Name Unknown) Another member of the Newcastle Crew, she survives both the initial appearance of Jallakuntilliokan, but his reappearance 20 years later. She seems to have lived hard in that time, looking much older than her 40 years, but Constantine recognizes her as a more powerful magician than he is.
Gary Lester A member of not only the Newcastle Crew, but also John's band of the time, serving as its drummer. Gary does not survive the initial attack of Jallakuntilliokan in 1993.
Frank North Frank survives the initial attack of Jallakuntilliokan, but loses a leg to the otherworldly creature. He actually seems to be the most well adjusted 20 years later, having gotten married and had kids. But when the creature returns, he does not know to avoid looking directly into the portal and is seduced by its power, turning on his friends. Chas is forced to stab him in the chest to put a stop to his attack, and Frank bleeds out during the ensuing battle.

The Ocean Master (Vulko) The latest in a series of men, going back to Poseidon to take on the mantle of the ultimate Atlantean hero, Vulko is the leader of the rebel group besieging Poseidonis. He is strong enough to withstand combat from both Arthur Curry (Aquaman) and Orm at once. An older man with greying hair, he claims to be dying, even as he leads the war against Orm.

Onyx seems to be involved in the war brewing between the devotees of Ashram, and the Monkey Fist Brotherhood, a group of renegades who have taken the teachings of Ashram in a different direction.

Once pregnant, she is true to her word and unleashes the Titan upon the ocean.

Orm is brash and pompous, and quick to rage and threaten to get his way. There are rumors that Orm murdered his father Atlan to seize the throne, and they may well be more than rumor. Orm tries several ways to get rid of Arthur, first sending the assassin Black Manta after him, before following him to the surface to take care of it himself. This ends with Orm captured by the DEO, though his current whereabouts are unknown as he does not appear on ARGUS' prisoner list as of 2014. Appeared in Ultimate Aquaman Current Status: Unclaimed

It is unknown if Padilla ever discovered the affair was happening. Appeared in Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed Papa Midnite A cult leader in the United States, Midnite has been using voodoo magic to abduct people, wipe their minds and use the bodies as batteries to create a network for his benefactors to travel through, untethering their minds from their bodies. Mister E is the first hero to try and stop him, and Midnite, strips Mister E's mind, trapping it in a prison within the network. Mister E quickly corrupts that prison, and warps it into his own place, from which Mister E contacts John Constantine, and involves him in the problem. The pair realize the only way to end the threat is to destroy the network, even though it will cost the lives of the men and women using it. Mister E reasons that doing it is best, because in the long run, these people are under the sway of Papa Midnite anyway, and would remain a treat. Midnite's mind is in the network when it is destroyed Appeared in Ultimate Hellblazer Current Status: Presumed deceased King Arthur Pendragon The legendary King who pulled the sword from the stone as a youth and founded the Knights of the Round Table and Camelot in adulthood.

Appeared in Ultimate Ex Machina Current Status: Unclaimed Power Girl (Karen Starr/Kara Zod) Karen first appeared as a captive of the Ultra Humanite, assisting Clark when he too is taken captive. Working together, the pair were able to outsmart the Ultra Humanite and escape to Earth, where Karen slowly assimilated into Earth culture as best she could, facing off against threats in Metropolis with a brash, impulsive attitude. She is also prone to rushing to judgment, smashing through Lex Luthor's windows to interrogate him, attacking Superman relentlessly when she had confused him with Bizarro and directly assaulting the ARGUS facility. Though Superman preaches patience, her relentless belief in herself has helped a great deal, and has impressed even some of her most stringent enemies, breeding something of respect from Lex's amazonian bodyguards.
She was a tremendous ally to Superman, although she was also working with her father General Zod at the same time, alerting them to the benefits of life on Earth and it's suitability as a possible colony site. Part of this was using her civilian identity as a cover, gaining an ability to contact the other Kryptonians through a position at Metropolis' STAR labs, and covering up anyone else's discovery of the incoming Kryptonian ship.
When Luthor and the forces of ARGUS launch an attack on the presumed hostile Kryptonians, Karen had to choose whether her loyalties would remain with Clark and Earth, or with her people, especially her father, General Zod.

As it takes over control and assimilates his personality, Jones becomes capable of emitting high level sonic bursts that can kill and projecting invisible force fields. Now speaking in the plural, the creature seems to agree with Jones' misanthropy, and decides to expunge all human life from the planet by bringing more of its kind to Earth through the same portal.

He is adopted by the Kent family, and raised as Clark, unaware of his alien heritage until his powers begin to manifest. As he grows up, he begins to exhibit super strength, invulnerability and the ability to fly. Upon graduating college, he becomes inspired by journalist Lois Lane, and follows her to Metropolis, where Clark Kent becomes a notable journalist in his own right, while Superman becomes the cities defender.
