The Interfaith Deity Council of Active Polytheistics

Following the defeat of Cronus, Zeus recommended that the deities of various pantheons band together. This was both for their own security, and for the prospect of rebuilding their base of worshippers. To defeat Cronus, Zeus had allied with the Hindu pantheon and Pax Dei (heavenly host). (Wonder Woman #147-150)

Soon the Interfaith Deity Council of Active Polytheistics (I.D.C.A.P.) was established. It wasn't long before the dark gods of several pantheons hatched a plan to subvert this council's purpose. Five gods (Morrigan, the War Bringer; Mixcoatl, the Stalking Death; Baal the Thundering Destroyer; Malik, Evil Incarnate; and Izanami, Queen of the Underworld) took mortal forms and appraoched Superman with an offer. They reasoned that Superman was a modern-day pagan success story: he had essentially fostered his own set of followers. They coveted his success and hoped he would agree to lead them to power.

As insurance, the dark gods kidnapped Lois Lane and transformed her into the Goddess of Integrity. Thus, Lois saw through their scheme and revealed their true forms. Superman defeated the dark gods with the potent use of iron, which inhibits their powers. Once subdued, the true members of I.D.C.A.P. (Zeus, Odin, Ale and Thoth) appeared to Superman. Zeus explained that because the domination of Imperiex had been halted, universal free will had spread and their worshippers had dwindled. They collected their dark brethren but also remarked that they were interested in Superman's success. (Superman: Man of Steel #126-127)

Injustice Gang

This gang was originally organized by the mysterious Libra, who at the conclusion of their first case, became one with the universe. (Justice League of America v.1 #111) Undeterrerd, Poison Ivy soon regrouped with five others (Captain Boomerang, I.Q., Ocean Master, Plant Master, Shark) but quickly failed. (JLA 80-Page #2) The original team (Chronos, Mirror Master, Poison Ivy, Scarecrow & Shadow Thief) returned twice more in the name of injustice. These five had one unsuccessful encounter with the JLA on their own (Justice League of America v.1 #143), and one led by Abra Kadabra. (Justice League of America v.1 #158)

Libra •  Poison Ivy • Tattooed Man •  Scarecrow • Shadow Thief • Chronos

The name went unused until recently, when Lex Luthor formed his own answer to the seven "big guns." To give this team an edge, Luthor enslaved the telepathic Saturnian, Jemm. By freeing Jemm and bribing Mirror Master, this team was not so much defeated as stalemated. They escaped and Luthor recruited three new allies. (Afterwards, Jemm stayed briefly with J'onn J'onzz before returning to Saturn.) (JLA #10-15)

Lex Luthor • Joker •  Dr. Light •  Jemm •  Circe •  Mirror Master

Allied with the Queen Bee, Prometheus and the General, Luthor had the strength, cunning and knowledge needed to push Earth's heroes to their limit. With the added threat of Mageddon, the JLA turned to the last survivor of Wonderworld, Glimmer, who bestowed everyone on Earth with super powers. (JLA #36-41)

Injustice League

Justice League Antarctica

The original Injustice League was the brainchild of the interplanetary conqueror, Agamemno. Bored of his dominion, he set out to conquer Earth and their champions, the Justice League. Aided by Kanjar Ro, Agamemno contacts Lex Luthor and they recruited eight other villains to their cause. (Silver Age: SFO) Agamemno then engineered a switch wherein the villains' minds switched with those of the JLA. In the true JLA's absence, other Silver Age heroes came to clash with the now seemingly evil heroes. (Silver Age #1) Eventually, Green Lantern used the power of the central power battery and the Absorbascon to reverse the mind-swap. (S.A.: Showcase) Having spent time in their enemies' bodies, the villains knew their heroic counterparts inside-out. To regain the edge, the JLA used the power of Robby Reed's alien H-Dial to transform themselves into totally different heroes. Then using his power ring through the Absorbascon, Green Lantern removed all knowledge of the heroes' secret identities from the villains' minds. (S.A.: 80-Page)

Major Disaster • Big Sir • Cluemaster • Clock King • Multi-Man

The second Injustice League was … quite different. They were:

  • Major Disaster, the Injustice League's leader, asked scientists for devices to create disasters to allow him to rob, but those disasters eventually became part of him. He can create "natural" disasters (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, etc.).
  • Born with a malfunctioning pituitary gland, Big Sir's body grew huge, but his mind is that of a child's. His deficiencies once seemed cured, but he soon lapsed back into a simple, gentle mind that blindly follows whoever befriends him. Big Sir could break through solid brick and bend steel pipes. He once had a power mace that could emit energy blasts and allow him to fly, but he lost it.
  • Clock King neither had nor wanted special clock weapons. He became a crook because he thought he was terminally ill and wanted to provide for his now-dead sister. For a while, he tangled with Green Arrow. Clock King is obsessed with time and gets the shakes if he's late.
  • Cluemaster has no special powers either, but on his chest is a whole slew of gimmicks: smoke bombs, tear gas, explosives, etc. He used to be a game show host. His primary nemesis was Batman. His daughter, Stephanie, has taken to heroing as the Spoiler.
  • Multi-Man swallowed an ancient chemical called "liquid light," giving him the ability to reincarnate himself, gaining new powers each time he returned to life. But each resurrection had a traumatic effect: he learned he doesn't like dying. He used to use the telepathic powers he received from liquid light to fight the Challengers of the Unknown. Multi-Man suffers from frequent mood swings.
  • The self-named Mighty Bruce was a two-bit crook who would knock over businesses and give the monies to charity, Bruce is simply misguided, but a whiz with machines of any kind.

1st mission (JLA #22-23) Next, the I.L. thought it would be easier to continue their career in Europe. However, the JLE had just opened its doors and the group inadvertendly enrolled in the same beginning French course as the Justice League! Afterwards they were deported from France. (JLE #6) Ever in search for the next big score, Disaster and Big Sir broke the bank in the casino of the newly formed "Club JLI," on the island of KooeyKooeyKooey. Before they could spend their winnings, the island itself got up and went! In face of tectonic chaos, Disaster was recruited by the JLA to help stabilize the island. Aquaman guided him beneath the waves, where he anchored the island to an underwater volcano. Instead of fleeing, Disaster chose to return topside and face justice. (JLA #34-35)

For a short time, the Injustice League reformed when they inadvertently stopped a terrorist attack. To keep them in check, Max set them up as "Justice League Antarctica" and they were joined by two other pests: G'nort and the Scarlet Skier. This embassy was quickly destroyed when Major Disaster defeated some killer penguins. (JLA Annual #4) They soon defaulted to crime as the Injustice League and attempted to steal from the cult of Minister Sun. In the end, their fruits were stolen from them as well. (JLQ #4) All but Mighty Bruce, G'nort and Scarlet Skier wound up in prison and were recruited by the Suicide Squad. Big Sir and Clock King perished (Multi-Man is immortal), and afterwards, Major Disaster stayed on with the Squad. (Suicide Squad, v.2 #1)
