The Galactic Golem is a creature created by Lex Luthor in the DC Universe. Within the context of the stories, the Golem is a solar-powered enemy of Superman.

The problem with Superman's rogues' gallery was, they were all thinkers...they were scientists, or guys who built toys. With the Golem, he could hit Superman, and Superman could hit him back".
It only made two appearances: Superman #248 (February 1972) and 258 (November 1972). Afterwards, it was erased from DC continuity following Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Allegra Garcia was raised in the Santa Marta slums of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil by her foster parents Ramon and Esperanza Garcia where her biological father is the supervillain Wavelength. Upon emigrating to Gotham City while developing the ability to emit electromagnetic light, she fell in with some gangs and took parts in robberies before being stopped by the local vigilantes and remanded to Arkham Asylum. In order to reunite with his daughter after some villains he knew saw Allegra, Wavelength hired Deathstroke and his version of the Titans to spring her out of Arkham Asylum. Though they had to get through Batman and some of Arkham Asylum's inmates like Clayface, Killer Croc, Mad Hatter, Victor Zsasz who sought to take the advantage to escape from Arkham Asylum. When the mission was a success, Deathstroke's Titans brought her to Brazil where Allegra lashed out against her father for abandoning her and used the UV rays in the sky to fry him.

After making minor appearances in season six, Esperanza seeks revenge in season seven, but is foiled by Allegra and receives medical help from Dr. Caitlin Snow to heal from her experience with Black Hole. However, Esperanza is killed while hunting and destroying Black Hole's remnants and disintegrates in Allegra's arms.
Garguax is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.
Garguax is a mammoth-sized alien conqueror who was exiled from his home planet for his plans to conquer the universe. He came to Earth and invaded it with an army of Plastic Men. Mento found his ship and encountered him as he learned his backstory. When Mento didn't want to help Garguax with his goals, Garguax used his technology to brainwash him. After the Doom Patrol freed Mento from his mind-control, they fought Garguax. The Doom Patrol destroyed the ship which seemingly killed Garguax.
Garguax later appeared as a member of the Brotherhood of Evil alongside General Immortus at the time when they unleashed a Giant Jukebox Robot. Garguax pitches an idea to the Brotherhood of Evil to take over Earth. General Immortus supported his idea as he uses a device to turn anyone into diamond-skinned slaves that obey the Brotherhood of Evil's every command.
Garguax was with the Brotherhood of Evil at the time when Madame Rouge planned to discredit Mento before his wedding to Elasti-Girl. Chief figures out the Rouge and the Doom Patrol caused the Brotherhood of Evil to retreat.
Following the Doom Patrol's apparent death, Garguax creates a giant android called Mandred to attack Chief and Beast Boy. When the Doom Patrol turns up alive as Brain tries to attack Chief, the Brotherhood of Evil get away as Brain remotely broadcasts some solar energy to revive Mandred.
The claims that Garguax made about being exiled from his homeworld were false as he turned out to be an agent of his homeworld's ruler Zarox-13. Garguax betrayed the Brotherhood of Evil after Zarox-13 arrived on Earth to conquer it. The Doom Patrol and the Brotherhood of Evil had to work together to defeat Zarox-13.
During the Invasion! storyline, Garguax attempted to join the alien alliance only to be rejected. This caused Garguax to join forces with the Doom Patrol to defend Earth from the upcoming alien invasion while secretly planning to take over Earth himself. Following the end of the alien invasion, Garguax resumed his plans to try to destroy the Doom Patrol. Chief called in a favor from the President of the United States to fire a laser satellite at Garguax's ship enough to obliterate him.

Garn Daanuth is a fictional supervillain introduced in Warlord #62 (July 1982). His character is the major antagonist in both Arion, Lord of Atlantis and Arion the Immortal titles, serving as Arion's arch-enemy. He is affiliated with the Lords of Chaos, originally stated to be one of their agents. Later and modern revisions of the character instead mention him as a genuine Lord of Chaos. In the DC Universe, he serves as a prominent evil figure in ancient Atlantis's history and the former ruler of Mu, whose people culturally resemble ancient Egyptians. He is also alleged to be an ancestor of the Titans hero, Tempest (formerly Aqualad) and a distant relative to significant DC characters such as Aquaman, Ocean Master, and Zatanna through his brother's bloodline.
The eldest twin of Arion and son of Majistra and Calculha, he was instead raised by Majistra within the city-state of Mu. Taught black magic by his mother, Majistra raised him in accordance of a prophecy regarding two brothers in eternal conflict over the fate of Atlantis as an agent of the Lords of Chaos. Garn would gain a rivalry with Arion when his sacrifice of usurping the Zodiac Crystals from Majistra seemingly caused her death and bleached his skin, a reminder of his path as a dark sorcerer compared to Arion's light path and practice of white magic. Gaining a strong hatred for him, Garn would not learn of their true familial connection until centuries later and took over his mother's position as the leading figure of Mu, consolidating his wealth and sorcerous powers. Other stories mention that he was also an ally of Vandal Savage, helping Garn in his goal to undermine the ancient Atlantean government as a member of the Brotherhood of Light, the precursor to Savage's Illuminati secret society.
In the Arion, Lord of Atlantis title, Garn would be responsible for various atrocities in ancient Atlantean history, including invasions of other city-states, destroying the physical body of Calculha, his mind-control plot to usurp Arion's position as Lord High Mage driving a mentally damage D'Tilluh to commit suicide and a traumatized Wyynde becoming unresponsive, and the eradication of the Wyynde's tribe, the people of Khe-Wannantu. He was characterized often as a feared figure considered a genuine god. He also made a limited appearance in Warlord, revealed to be the ancestor of Aoife, whom was bestowed a major source of his power, Garn's circlet. Despite her evil legacy, she sided with Travis Morgan and used the powers bestowed from it for benevolent reasons. Although the image of Garn in his circlet (containing his will and personality) disapproved, he nevertheless stated his descendants are able to do whatever they pleased with their inherited power. In the Arion the Immortal series, it is detailed that after the destruction of Atlantis, Garn would relocate eventually into the Middle East and with his immortality but lack of powers, pose as a dictator of a small Middle Eastern army. When his magical abilities returned, he used them to bolster his forces until he was stopped by Arion.
A magical manifestation of his power would appear in the Young Justice comic title as a genie-like being known as Bedlam, possessing Matthew Stuart and making him a very powerful foe possessing all of Garn's magical power. He is eventually defeated by both the Young Justice team and later by Impulse using time travel to deprive him of his magical powers. For a time, the speedster also gained his powers until the intervention of Phantom Stranger sealed the evil magical forced out of Bart.
Garn Daanuth in other media
Garn Daanuth is mentioned in various media; the character is mentioned in DC Universe Online during the "Atlantis" episode, in the "Lost Crystals of Power" briefings. Like his comic counterpart, the briefing reveals him to be a relative to the royal family in Atlantis embodied in a conflict between his brother, Arion, for the Zodiac Crystals. While not making a physical appearance, he is confirmed to have existed in the Young Justice animated series, as the ancestor of Ocean Master's lieutenant and Atlantean purist, Danuuth.

As Sand and Wildcat talk during a movie theater, two people behind them tells them to keep it down. They discover that the people are the Geomancer and Killer Wasp. The Geomancer and Killer Wasp are soon assisted in the ambush by Black Adam. Sand fights the Geomancer under the streets of New York City and defeats him.
An unnamed man with similar powers became the second Geomancer. He is seen as a member of the Injustice Society.
Geomancer in other media
The Adam Fells incarnation of Geomancer appears in The CW live-action television series The Flash, portrayed by Adam Stafford. In the episodes "Welcome to Earth-2" and "Escape from Earth-2", Geomancer attacks Central City while the Flash is away on Earth-2, but Hunter Zolomon disguised as Jay Garrick fights Geomancer until his Velocity 7 formula stops working. Geomancer later attacks S.T.A.R. Labs, only to be subdued by Caitlin Snow and arrested by Joe West.
Minhkhoa "Khoa" Khan also known as Ghost-Maker is a Singaporean-Vietnamese vigilante who was trained alongside Batman by various mentors. Despite being close friends, the two vigilantes didn't agree with each others' method of punishing crimes. After the Joker War, Ghost-Maker becomes the leader of Batman Incorporated and Clownhunter's mentor.
Keith Kenyon was a political sciences student who was exposed to a chest of gold that had been affected by toxic waste. As a result of exposure, he gained superhuman strength and invulnerability. The gold also gave him a golden glow, apparently as a side effect of the serum. Of course, being close enough to yellow meant that Green Lantern's power ring could not affect him directly, making him particularly formidable against the super-hero. Deciding to rebel against the wishes of his father, a prominent labor union organizer, he began stealing gold around Coast City, which led to his defeat by Green Lantern. He began to refine his criminal ways by wearing gold-plated armor and using a "gold-gun" which sprayed liquid gold. After many clashes with Green Lantern, Kenyon decided to change his motif and ruthlessly began taking over criminal empires.
He eventually moved to Central City and became a foe of the second Flash, Barry Allen. In recent years, he apparently let go of his villainous ways marrying Amunet Black/Blacksmith. After serving his time, he moved to Keystone City and, following in his father's footsteps, became an honest Commissioner of Union 242. Over time, his elixir has slowly turned his skin into an organic golden flesh.
Goldface in other media
- Goldface makes minor appearances in the animated television series Justice League Unlimited, voiced by an uncredited Lex Lang. This version is a member of the Secret Society with the ability to turn anything to gold.
- Goldface appears in the live-action television series The Flash, portrayed by Damion Poitier. This version is a metahuman crime boss in the black market weapons business who can turn his skin to gold, manipulate golden items, and is the ex-boyfriend of Amunet Black.
The original Golden Eagle was an orphan by the name of Charley Parker. Charley lived in the Midway City orphanage and idolized Hawkman. At one point he sent a letter to Hawkman describing his home-made "Hawkman" costume. In Justice League of America #109, Hawkman had been ordered back to Thanagar, thus resigning from the JLA. Golden Eagle debuted seven issues later in Justice League of America #116.
Parker himself explained that one day he had been wearing his "Hawkman" costume and fantasizing he was the Thanagarian hero when a strange light enveloped him turning his costume into an exact replica of Hawkman's costume. He also gained the ability to fly due to the replicated wings of his costume. Charley could at will change his street clothes into the Golden Eagle costume. The Justice League was called by the Midway City Police due to several incidents where criminals were dropped off at the police headquarters, captured by someone unknown who left a gold-colored feather behind—Hawkman's old modus operandi.
The Leaguers investigated and ran into the Golden Eagle when they were attacked by Hawkman's old foe Mark Mandrill, the Matter Master, a man who carried a mentally controlled wand that could manipulate matter—for example, changing the heads of members of the Justice League into the heads of animals. The Matter Master thought that the Golden Eagle was Hawkman and mentally had the wand bring the Golden Eagle to his hidden lair. Mandrill figured out that his wand must have transformed Charley, acting out some sort of subconscious need for the villain to battle Hawkman, who had not been seen for months. At the end of the story, Charley was changed back into a normal teenager.
In 1989, Golden Eagle was retconned as a Californian surfer, unable to hold down a job. The previous connection to Hawkman was gone. Instead, his past was a mystery, just as the origins of his costume and his powers. Nonetheless, he remained connected to the Titans West, and was involved in the Titans Hunt storyline, where he was seemingly killed by a member of the Wildebeest Society.
In Hawkman (vol. 4) #43, a new origin for Golden Eagle was introduced. Once an orphan in Midway City's Sisters of Mercy orphanage, Charley Parker bounced around from different foster homes and orphanages for the better part of his youth, learning life's hardships along the way. At sixteen, he became a drug courier for Mick Valdare, and was adopted by various foster families. Valdare paid these families handsomely, which allowed Parker, and by extension Valdare, to keep a low profile and to have a front if caught. Parker lived a rich and spoiled life full of fast cars, expensive clothes and beautiful women until he turned eighteen. Valdare fired him because he was no longer a minor. Parker, desolate, alone and without the luxuries he had grown accustomed to, considered suicide. Hawkman saved him and became a mentor for the young man. On the hero's recommendation, Parker went to, and found a job opportunity with, Carter Hall, a museum curator and Hawkman's secret identity. Parker accepted, and was soon exposed to other heroes, including Adam Strange and Hawkgirl.
Parker earned Hall's trust when he defended Hawkgirl from the Shadow Thief. Hall revealed his secret identity, gave Parker a Thanagarian battle suit that had been discovered by Adam Strange, and began training him to be a hero. Parker, now known as Golden Eagle, finally felt he had a purpose in life. Carter Hall had to leave Earth and left Charley to his own devices. Parker eventually hooked up with the Titans West, but after that team disbanded, he returned to a slacker lifestyle, surfing and performing the occasional odd job to earn money. After discovering that renting out his services as a hero didn't generate sufficient income, he retired the Golden Eagle identity. Deathstroke asked him to track down some missing Teen Titans members at the beginning of the Titans Hunt storyline. During this time, while fighting alongside Aqualad against the Wildebeest Society, Parker was choked to death. A statue of Golden Eagle is in the memorial section of Titans Tower. Suddenly, he was miraculously revived by the Nth-Metal within his Thanagarian armor, claiming to have rediscovered his motivation to be a force for good.
This story proved to be a ruse, and Parker's true colors and motivations appeared in Hawkman (vol. 4) #44–45. When Carter Hall was seemingly killed in battle, Parker claimed the right to his legacy, becoming the new Hawkman. He managed to win the friendship of Kendra, and claimed to be the "true" Hawkman's son (he considered Hall a "false Hawkman"). He showed Kendra a Thanagarian ship he had built using blueprints stored in his Golden Eagle armor, and asked her to follow him to Thanagar. When she refused both his proposal and sexual advances, Parker beat her and exposed the truth about his relationship with Hawkman. On the verge of killing Kendra and replacing her with a Thanagarian maiden, "more suited to his tastes", Parker was confronted by a very much alive Carter Hall, who miraculously returned for a final showdown with his former protégé.
In the subsequent fight between the two Hawkmen, it was revealed that Parker was indeed the son of a Hawkman, the villainous Fel Andar, the spy sent from Thanagar in the wake of the Invasion, the military alliance against Earth, and Earth woman Sharon Parker. Parker had carefully planned the death of Carter Hall, creating an alliance among many of Hawkman's foes. He drugged Hall to beat Hawkgirl, to make her betray him just as (Parker believed) the Thanagarians and Earth-men had betrayed his father. Hall beat his foe and sent Parker, along with a recording of his confessions, to Thanagar to be judged for his crimes.
Arriving on Thanagar in the wake of the Rann-Thanagar War, he earned a pardon for his crimes and was instated as a Wingman leader dispatched on Rann. Half-blinded by the severe beating he suffered at Hall's hands, Parker was now equipped with a cybernetic eyepatch over the left eyesocket and a new suit of armor. In battle with Hawkman, Hawkgirl and Adam Strange, Parker was finally reunited with his father, Fel Andar, who had now forsaken his evil plans of domination and sought only forgiveness and to do what is right for Thanagar. He pleaded with his son to follow the same path. Parker foregoes a further attack on Hawkman and Hawkgirl, but it is unknown yet what path he will take. His father Fel Andar was killed during an encounter with Blackfire.
After the alien Forerunner Viza Aziv was dismissed from The Monarch's multiversal army, she found herself in space aboard a space pirate ship she promptly took as her own. Shortly afterwards, a Thanagarian fleet in search of the ship's original captain demanded her surrender, to which she challenged them and their leader to honorable combat. Their leader was Golden Eagle. Viza invoked the law of choice, a custom on her home world enabling the victor of a battle to take any prize they wanted. After she defeated him and his troops, she decided to take him as her prize, forcing him to serve as her sex slave aboard her pirate ship. When Forerunner finds a planet to call her own, she allows Golden Eagle to leave.
Aryan Brigade version
There is a second Golden Eagle that is a member of the Aryan Brigade. This Golden Eagle is much different from Golden Eagle I since he is equipped with mechanical wings and is a white supremacist like the other members of the Aryan Brigade.

Gorilla Boss is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.
George Dyke is a crime boss who was executed in a gas chamber. His body is taken to a doctor named Doc Willard who transplants his brain into the body of a towering gorilla. When the body gains consciousness, George becomes Gorilla Boss. Due to the fact that the gorilla body doesn't speak, he uses a pad and pencil to order Doc Willard and his henchmen to procure the required funds so that he can have his brain placed in the body of Batman and Batman's brain placed in the body of the gorilla. Gorilla Boss committed a series of crimes and claims that once Batman's brain is in the body of the gorilla, the police will mistake him for the culprit and kill him. Batman escapes Gorilla Boss's grasp and is chased up the building until Gorilla Boss falls to the street where he remains unconscious by the time Batman makes it to the ground. The truth about the gorilla having George Dyke's brain and the experiments that allowed this to happen were revealed.
An alien race later places the brain of Gorilla Boss into the body of a chlorophyll-sapping alien beast as part of their plans to take over Earth. Superman and Batman were able to thwart the alien invasion, but Gorilla Boss escapes with Doc Willard. A witness to Whisperer's crime spree was later subjected to a brain surgery by Doc Willard in order to place Gorilla Boss' brain in him. When Batman was using a machine to get the information on Whisperer out of the witness, it was starting to reveal Batman's true identity causing Superman to destroy it. They both figured out that Doc Willard was responsible for the brain switch. Batman later finds Willard in a mentally-deranged state. When interrogating him at the Batcave, he revealed that a "yellow alien" took Gorilla Boss' brain. Batman deduces that Sinestro was responsible. Superman finds that Sinestro is using Gorilla Boss' brain to increase his power supply. Superman thwarts this plot. While Sinestro was sent back to Qward, Doc Willard is remanded to Arkham Asylum while Gorilla Boss' brain is placed back in its place in the Batcave.
By the time Gorilla Boss' brain is back in his gorilla body, he gets used as a pawn by Gorilla Grodd who mind-controls him, Congorilla, B'wana Beast's gorilla companion Djuba, Monsieur Mallah, and Sam Simeon. Though it also affects Swamp Thing. When Gorilla Grodd's psychic abilities have reached his limit enough to damage his brain, Gorilla Boss and the other apes are freed from his mind-control.
Gorilla Boss in other media

Gorilla Boss is defeated by B'wana Beast and Vixen (whom he taunts mercilessly because she is not as strong as he).
Grid is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics.
After Dr. Silas Stone used his technology to convert his son into Cyborg, some technology manifested that wanted Cyborg to get information on metahumans. When he fought the controls, the secondary cybernetic systems began to hunt passively for information. Cyborg began to refer to the software as the "Grid". As it grew with every computer intelligence, it developed quirks and traits from the hackers and viruses that it encountered. Its full sentience was brought out by Atomica where she used it to steal the date of the Justice League's adventures during the events of the "Trinity War" storyline. When she betrayed the Justice League upon revealing her allegiance to the arrival of the Crime Syndicate of America, Atomica brought Grid into the group. When it joined the Crime Syndicate, it got what it wanted: a body made from Cyborg's robot prosthesis and emotions.
During the "Forever Evil" storyline, Grid served the Crime Syndicate as their datahub in their plan to take over the world. He starts by cutting power to all major cities, and orchestrates the release of all prisoners from the world's superhuman prisons. Grid continues to examine case files for the Crime Syndicate members attempting to learn how to feel, and sees Power Ring, Johnny Quick, Atomica, and Deathstorm's histories of how they gained their powers. However, he is unable to view Superwoman's history as her file has been deleted to which he states that if he had feelings, it would now be suspicion. With he had the Metal Men reactivated, Cyborg informs them of Grid as they head to Happy Harbor to take on the Crime Syndicate. Cyborg lures Grid out and the Metal Men begin attacking him. Grid brings Society members to help as Grid enters Cyborg's new body. Cyborg is able to trap Grid in his body as the Metal Men defeat the Secret Society of Super Villains members that are present.
