False Face[edit]

Further reading

False Face is a name used by a number of different supervillains appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.[1]

The concept and first character, created by Mort Weisinger and Creig Flessel, first appeared in Leading Comics #2 (spring 1942) using the name "Falseface".[2] The name was later adjusted to "False Face" mirroring minor characters introduced by Fawcett Comics and Timely Comics.

Variations of the character have been introduced in Batman #113 (February 1958) and Birds of Prey #112 (January 2008). In all instances the character is only identified as "False-Face" or by an alias while in disguise.

First Golden Age version[edit]

The first version seen was among the five small-time criminals hired by organizer Black Star. Along with his colleagues Captain Bigg, Hopper, Brain and Rattler, he staged a robbery at a city bank by disguising himself as a construction worker. False-Face drilled through a water main and used the pressurised escaping water to blast a hole into the bank. After he and his friends robbed the bank, they used a paddy wagon as their getaway vehicle while disguised as police officers. Under the orders of Black Star, False-Face was sent to New Orleans to rob riches from those sponsoring the Mardi Gras event. He and his henchmen disguised themselves as a Clown Krewe and insinuated themselves onto a parade float. This managed to attract the attention of Shining Knight who was in the area at the time. False-Face escaped, but his henchmen were apprehended. He then attempted to steal the Star Sapphire Gem from Mardi Gras organizer J.J. Ennis. To do this, False-Face disguised himself as a police detective and infiltrated Ennis' house. He once again fought against the Shining Knight, and briefly subdued him, but the Shining Knight escaped from False-Face's trap and defeated him. False-Face was then arrested by the police. At this point, it was discovered that the unpleasant face he usually presented was not false at all.[Comics 1] Much later, he confronts the Star-Spangled Kid.[Comics 2]

Second Golden Age version[edit]

Further reading

A different version dies in a confrontation with Captain Marvel, Jr.[Comics 3] While not the same character as created for DC, the publisher would later license and eventually purchase the characters and stories that Fawcett published. The material would be assigned to "Earth-S" within the continuity of the DC Universe.

Silver Age version[edit]

The late 1950s version of the character, created by an uncredited writer and Sheldon Moldoff, appeared once in Batman #113.[3]

Little is known of the Caped Crusaders' first meeting with the villain, but on their second chance encounter they found that he had impersonated a wealthy uranium tycoon named P.S. Smithington. As Smithington, False-Face robbed a Gotham City jewelry store, framing the true Smithington for the crime. Batman managed to rescue the actual Smithington, but was unable to recover the stolen jewels. At police headquarters, Commissioner James Gordon supplied Batman and Robin with information about the case and the two gave chase. This time, False-Face kidnapped rock star Wally Weskit during a charity benefit concert and concealed him in an elevator shaft. As False-Face assumed the form of Wally Weskit, his henchman Pebbles attempted to make off with the charity proceeds. Batman and Robin managed to prevent this, but False-Face and his gang escaped. The third time that False-Face struck, he impersonated a safari hunter named Arthur Crandall to get into the Gotham City's Explorer Club. While attempting to steal the club's Golden Tiger Trophy, Batman and Robin arrived and were on his heels again. He lured Batman towards a large water tank and managed to temporarily trap him, but the Dark Knight detective succeeded in outsmarting False Face and his men, apprehending the entire group in the process. False Face was taken to prison whereupon he soon retired from his life of crime.[Batman 1]

Second version[edit]

A second version of Firehawk later appeared as the Firestorm of France.[19]

Firestorm[edit]

Fisherman[edit]

Fisherman is the name of different characters appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

Kurt Hartmann[edit]

Kurt Hartmann is a fisherman-themed criminal and an enemy of Doctor Mid-Nite.[20]

Second version[edit]

The Fisherman's real identity has never been revealed. The character's modus operandi is mainly involved with stealing high tech equipment, then selling it on the black market.[21]

The concept and first character, created by Joe Greene and Stan Aschmeier, first appeared in All-American Comics #69 (November–December 1945) as a single-use thief in the Doctor Mid-Nite strip.[22] The name was reused for a single appearance character in Blackhawk #163 (August 1961),[23] and later for a character that became a recurring opponent of Aquaman.[24] Within the context of the stories, this latter Fisherman is originally presented as an international criminal specializing in the theft of rare objects and scientific inventions. He utilizes a high tech pressure suit, collapsible fishing rod, and gimmick "lures" in his crimes. While his identity is never revealed, enough is known about him for the Gotham City coroner to state that a man wearing a copy of his equipment that is killed in Gotham is not the same person who faced Aquaman.[25]

In his first encounter with Aquaman, the Fisherman uses an explosive lure on Aquaman, almost killing him, but Aquaman escapes on a blue whale.[26] The Fisherman returns many times to fight Aquaman, as well as Blue Devil.[27] The Fisherman confronts the canine Green Lantern G'nort.[28] He appears in "Roulette"'s gladiatorial gamehouse.[29]

The Fisherman is one of the many supervillains to take advantage of the "villain-friendly" atmosphere of the fictional country of Zandia. He becomes involved in a large confrontation when the team of Young Justice leads a superpowered army against the country for various reasons.[30]

Impostor[edit]

In Infinite Crisis #1 (2005), the Fisherman, along with the Riddler, the Body Doubles, the Scavenger, Red Panzer and Murmur attack Gotham police officers in Cathedral Square.

The attack is elaborated upon in the series Gotham Central. After a magical accident devastates Gotham, the villain goes on a rampage. Over the prone forms of other officers, the Fisherman confronts Renee Montoya and Crispus Allen. While strangling Allen, the Fisherman is shot dead by Detectives Marcus Driver and Josie MacDonald; Allen and Montoya survive. During an autopsy it is revealed that the dead man is not the original villain of that name.[31]

Xenoform[edit]

A new, more deadly version of the villain appears in Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis #48-49 (2007), written by Kurt Busiek. The Fisherman's helmet is revealed to be a xenoform parasite, a Lovecraftian alien that attaches itself to every incarnation of the Fisherman and uses telepathy to instill fear in its victims.[14]

Arnold Flass[edit]

Arnold John Flass is a corrupt police detective in Gotham who appeared in Batman #404 (February 1987).[32]

Then-Lieutenant Jim Gordon's partner upon his arrival in Gotham, Detective Arnold is in the pockets of drug dealer Jefferson Skeevers, crime boss Carmine Falcone and corrupt Commissioner Gillian B. Loeb. He is apparently murdered by the Hangman killer,[33] but had previously appeared in a story set years after the Hangman killings.[34]

Arnold Flass in other media[edit]

  • Arnold Flass appears in Batman Begins, portrayed by Mark Boone Junior. This version indirectly works with Dr. Jonathan Crane and the League of Shadows. When Ra's al Ghul unleashes fear gas in the city, Flass is infected with fear toxin and restrained by Gordon, leading to his arrest.
  • Arnold Flass appears in the animated adaptation of Batman: Year One, voiced by Fred Tatasciore.
  • Arnold Flass appears as a recurring character in Gotham, portrayed by Dash Mihok. This version is a narcotics detective who works with James Gordon and Harvey Bullock. In "Welcome Back, Jim Gordon", while investigating two murders, Bullock and Gordon suspect him as a corrupt cop involved in drug business. Gordon begs Oswald Cobblepot in helping the case, the latter agreeing by sending his henchman Gabe to find Flass's associate, the Narcotics Officer Derek Delaware. Gabe extorted him by threatening his wife to get information about Flass, eventually bringing Delaware's confession on tape and the murder weapon to Gordon, whom he arrests Arnold Flass for two murders. In "Everyone Has a Cobblepot", Flass is released from the murder accusations, revealed to be a work of police commissioner Gillian B. Loeb who blackmailed Bullock into exonerating Flass of the murder of Leon Winkler, which led to Flass being reinstated. Gordon and Bullock ask Oswald for help to enter Loeb's house to get his files. Gordon discovers Loeb's reason for releasing Flass: the connection with Carmine Falcone (which was claimed from Loeb's ex-partner Charlie Griggs) and the mental disease of his daughter Miriam, who killed own mother 20 years ago, in which Loeb fabricated the case, claiming that she died from falling the stairs in the house so that he could protect Miriam from being sent to Arkham. When Gordon confronts him in the office, Loeb wants to resign, but Gordon assures him to stay as a latter's leverage. In exchange for keeping Miriam's whereabouts as a secret, Gordon begs him to give a files of every cop being on Loeb's payroll for prosecutor Harvey Dent and that Loeb supports Gordon as a president of police union, but Loeb gives him Bullock's file. With enough evidence, Flass is presumably arrested and found guilty at trial.

Folded Man[edit]

Folded Man is the name of two fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

Edwin Gauss[edit]

The Folded Man was once Edwin Gauss, a physics student at M.I.T. looking to definitively resolve Albert Einstein's Unified field theory. After feverish effort, which includes the theft of proprietary software from electronics billionaire Norman Bridges, Gauss ultimately invents a method of interdimensional travel. He subsequently develops an exoskeleton which allows his physical form to move across at least four dimensions.[35]

An irate Bridges, who considers the exoskeleton Gauss developed (using Bridges' software) to be his own property, pursues Gauss to claim the technology for himself. Gauss reinvents himself as a costumed criminal named "the Folded Man". His new criminal career brings him into conflict with Wally West, the third Flash, although he has so far escaped capture.[35]

During the "Infinite Crisis" storyline, Folded Man becomes a member of Alexander Luthor Jr.'s Secret Society of Super Villains.[36]

Xolani[edit]

In 1883, a South African thief named Xolani became a conduit of the Speed Force where he gained the ability to contort his body into different shapes, flatten himself, phase through solid objects, and teleport by bending space-time for a certain period of time. It was through his space-time bending that he ended up in the present where he fought Flash.[37]

Folded Man in other media[edit]

The Edwin Gauss incarnation of Folded Man appears in The Flash episode "Lose Yourself", portrayed by Arturo Del Puerto. This version is a hippie who, among others, was exposed to dark matter after the Thinker tricked the Flash into doing so. Upon becoming a metahuman with dimensional travel-based abilities, Gauss is eventually targeted by the former and killed for his powers.

Force of Nature[edit]

The Forces of Nature are cosmic beings within DC Comics.

Speed Force[edit]

The Speed Force first appeared in The Flash (vol. 2) #91 (June 1994), and was created by Mark Waid. The Speed Force is an extradimensional energy source based around velocity and movement and is the (in-universe) representation of reality in motion as the very cosmic force that pushes space and time forward which is behind the abilities (superspeed, durability, etc.) for speedsters, such as Barry Allen, Jay Garrick, Wally West and other speedsters connected to the Flash, as well as utilizing the Black Flash as an enforcer to help keep the balance.[38]

Speed Force in other media[edit]

The Speed Force appears in The Flash (2014). This version is an interdimensional cosmic force of nature which is behind the abilities of speedsters, and utilizes the likeness of Nora Allen (portrayed by Michelle Harrison[39]) and others (such as Joe West (portrayed by Jesse L. Martin[40]) and Eddie Thawne (portrayed by Rick Cosnett[41])). It tries to maintain the cosmic balance, initially without emotional attachments during the second, third and sixth seasons before realizing how important teamwork can be thanks to Deon Owens, Psych and Fuerza as of the seventh season.

Negative Speed Force[edit]

The Negative Speed Force was created and utilized by Eobard Thawne to manipulate time drastically albeit with disastrous results which has been occasionally utilized by other speedsters as the Negative Flash.[42][43][44]

Negative Speed Force in other media[edit]

The Negative Speed Force appears in The Flash (2014). This version is the cosmic opposite which acts negative emotions and can possesses individuals, such as Nora West-Allen (portrayed by Jessica Parker Kennedy[45]) and Mark Blaine (portrayed by Jon Cor[46]). It's introduced in the fifth season where it was initially believed to be an alternate power source before it's ultimately revealed to be a cosmic force, working together with the Negative Still Force in the eighth season before acting on its own in the ninth season by using the Cobalt-27 crystal to possess several individuals across time as Cobalt Blue in order to disrupt the cosmic balance.

Forever Force[edit]

The Forever Force has the power to manipulate time which Hunter Zolomon used to control the flow of time while appearing as a speedster.[47]

In other media[edit]

The Negative Still Force appears in the eighth season of The Flash (2014), portrayed by Christian Magby, Ennis Esmer and Sara Garcia. A time sickness resulted in the theft of Deon Owens's likeness as well as the disabling of Psych and Fuerza which resulted in the existence of the Negative Sage Force and the Negative Strength Force. The three worked together restore the Negative Speed Force's connection before combining their abilities as the Negative Flash.

Bride of Frankenstein[edit]

Bride of Frankenstein is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. She is adapted from the movie character of the same name.

Frankenstein[edit]

Young Frankenstein[edit]

Young Frankenstein is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.

Little is known about the origin of Young Frankenstein. At one point, Young Frankenstein was a member of the Teen Titans in-between the events of Infinite Crisis and One Year Later. A picture of him[48] clearly shows him as a younger version of the famous Frankenstein, another DC Comics character based on the famous monster and a member of the Seven Soldiers of Victory. What the connection is between the two has yet to be explained.

He finally made an appearance during the World War III event where he and the other Teen Titans tried to help stop a rampaging Black Adam. The group confronts the murderer at the Greek Parthenon. Zatara is badly injured. Young Frankenstein grabs Black Adam, who then rips off his arms. At that point the Titans leave their wounded to the care of rapidly approaching Greek authorities. Martian Manhunter, disguised as a medical worker, goes into Young Frankenstein's mind and learns that he is still alive and in great pain. Martian Manhunter soothes his mind, staying with him until his death.[49]

In the DC Infinite Halloween Special, Victor Zsasz revealed the final fate of Young Frankenstein in a tale called "...In Stitches". As his remains were being carried away in a helicopter, it was struck by lightning. His body was blown to bits, and the individual pieces began moving on their own, killing anyone in their path for new flesh. Young Frankenstein was finally able to pull himself back together in Albania and began walking on the bottom of the Ionian Sea with a need for revenge.

According to promotional materials for the new Terror Titans series, Young Frankenstein, whose final story is now revealed to be true and not a fabricated Halloween tale, is stated to be one of the imprisoned heroes forced to fight on the behest of the Apokoliptan gods on Earth in the Dark Side Club.[50] After being rescued from the club by Miss Martian, Young Frankenstein was offered a spot on the new Teen Titans roster, but declined.[51]

Young Frankenstein also appears in a pin-up drawn for the final issue of Teen Titans.[52]

Fuerza[edit]

Fuerza (Alexa Antigone) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Joshua Williamson and Rafa Sandoval, and first appeared in The Flash vol. 5 #59 (January 2019). She is an anarchist who is a conduit of the Strength Force to which she possessed super-strength, dimensional travel, size-shifting, and invulnerability. Fuerza encountered Barry Allen and Iris West while trying to free Corto Maltese (the South American nation) from a corrupt government by using a hidden community in the mountains as a lair. Fuerza and the Flash deal with the illegal weapons smuggler Cauldron equipped with a gun powered by the Sage Force until Fuerza disarmed the dictator as she lost control and transformed into her hulking form before being convinced by her mother to stop.[53] Fuerza and the Flash try to work with Steadfast, but first Psych ruins it and then retreats.[54]

Fuerza in other media[edit]

A variation of Fuerza, Alexa Rivers, appears in The Flash, portrayed by Sara Garcia. This version is a medical volunteer who can shapeshift into a hulking humanoid form dubbed Fuerza that possesses enhanced strength, speed, stamina, and durability and energy absorption. Introduced in the seventh season, she had a hard time controlling the Strength Force abilities until she received help with a special device Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost used where the former can speak to the latter which was useful in helping herself while subduing Psych. Afterwards, Rivers helps Bashir Malik and Deon Owens in humbling the Speed Force which resulted in the four learning to work to bring balance to existence. In the eighth season, Rivers gets sick with a time sickness which resulted in the Negative Strength Force's existence before she eventually recovers.
