Bludhaven is the city that was once home to Gotham City’s villains, but it was destroyed by Lex Luthor in the crossover event Villains United. Since then, it has been rebuilt and turned into a seedy, crime-ridden town known for its high crime rate and low morals. While it’s not quite as well known or recognizable as Gotham or Metropolis (or even Smallville), there are still some characters worth mentioning here:
Blockbuster is a villain in Bludhaven. He was a member of the Secret Society of Super Villains and was also part of their strike force, the Battle Beast Brigade.
Blockbuster was shown to be very powerful, capable of strong-arming Batman himself into submission. He also had a lot of charisma and was very determined when it came to his goals.
The Calculator is a genius computer hacker and villain in Batman: The Animated Series. He was born with the power to calculate mathematical probabilities, which he uses to predict future events and make his own plans.
The Calculator has been known to work on behalf of other villains throughout Gotham City’s history, but he’s also been known to work with heroes as well.
Clayface (Basil Karlo)
Basil Karlo is a former actor who became a villain, taking on the form of anyone he touches. He was also a member of the Society and killed by The Creeper.
- Crux is a villain who uses a sonic weapon to paralyze his victims.
- He was once part of the Royal Flush Gang, but he later became associated with the Secret Society of Super Villains and then The Society of Assassins.
Chimera is a villain in the DC Comics universe. He is a shapeshifter who can change his appearance to look like anyone. He is a member of the Secret Society of Super-Villains, and was also part of Injustice League before it disbanded.
Chimera was born with multiple personalities: his original form is that of an ordinary human being named Michael Collins; however, he also has four other personalities: Red Right Hand (a violent criminal who uses knives), Green Lantern (a childlike superhero who maintains loyalty only to himself), Swamp Thing (an embodiment of nature), and Aquaman (a watery humanoid). These different characters all exist within him as separate entities but are controlled by one central consciousness.
Chimera (another one)
Chimera (AKA Vic Stone) is a villain in the DC Universe, as well as a villain in the Batman Family of Characters. He was created by Chuck Dixon and Tom Grummett, and first appeared in “Robin” #177 (February 1991). His real name is Victor Stone who was born with a condition that left him without legs or arms; instead he had spindly stumps where his limbs should be – so he wears special gloves over them. He uses these gloves for hand-to-hand combat more than anything else though because they allow him to lift things much heavier than most people can handle comfortably such as cars or other heavy objects…and sometimes even buildings!
Black Mask is the leader of the False Face Society, a group that opposes Batman. He also appears as a villain in Batman: Arkham City and Arkham Knight.
Black Mask has been an antagonist for nearly a century, but he first appeared in Detective Comics #1 (May 1939), where he was introduced as an unnamed member of another gang who had disguised himself as some kind of “criminal genius”. When Commissioner Gordon came down hard on him after his crime spree ended up costing more than $5 million dollars worth of damages to Gotham City’s infrastructure (including several buildings being destroyed), Black Mask was forced out by his fellow gang members and went into hiding until he resurfaced again over 50 years later during Grant Morrison’s run on DC titles such as Batman: Gotham Nights or Detective Comics where he was known only as “The Masked Man”.
Clayface II (Cassius “Clay” Payne)
Clayface II is a member of the Mud Pack, which was led by Clayface. He was first seen as a struggling actor who wanted to make it big in Hollywood and then turned into clay after being attacked by an unknown person or persons. After becoming a villain, he became one of Batman’s most prominent enemies until he disappeared from Gotham City for years at a time before returning with his daughter Julie Madison (the second woman to become known as Talia al Ghul) who took over leadership roles within the organization until she too fell victim to her brother’s manipulations resulting in him usurping control over it once again..
I’m sure you’ve heard of the Penguin. He’s a classic Batman villain, and he’s known for being a mob boss. He’s also short, with an eye-patch and a monocle that gives him an air of classiness (though this can be misleading). The Penguin wears tuxedo suits and top hats—and sometimes makes use of his umbrella as well!
This villain is masterful at deception; he uses his unique appearance to mask himself from others, but also uses mind games like charisma or trickery to get what he wants from them.
Red Hood and the Outlaws enemies
Red Hood and the Outlaws
As a matter of fact, Red Hood has a long history with Bludhaven. He first encountered Bruce Wayne when he was trying to track down Bizarro and ended up being forced into helping him with his search for the lost city of Atlantis. The two became allies as well as friends, but it wasn’t until years later that they would come together again—this time as enemies.
The villainous duo known as “Red Hood” or simply “Red Hood” (Jason Todd) and “The Joker” have been at each other’s throats since the early days of Gotham City’s heroics! The pair have clashed many times over crimefighting status during their careers; however now with Rebirth happening at DC Comics in late 2011/early 2012…
A lot of the villains in Bludhaven are B-list villains that didn’t make it in Gotham.
Bludhaven is a much smaller city than Gotham, so we get to see a lot of new villains. The police force and mayor are different from the ones in Gotham City and they have an economy that’s completely different from Gotham’s as well. This means that there are a lot of B-list villains who don’t make it into the main storyline of Batman comics because they’re not interesting enough to keep going back to them again and again like some other cities do with their heroes (like Metropolis).
So I don’t know about you, but I think this list is pretty accurate. Gotham has some amazing villains, but a lot of the ones that are in Bludhaven aren’t all that great. You can say the same thing about Batman’s rogues gallery, though!
