The League of Super Evil (or "L.O.S.E.") is a group of Super Villains who are plotting to take over their neighborhood in Metrotown and ultimately the world. Their missions usually involve pranks such as gluing a penny to a chair. While all the other citizens in the neighborhood live in suburban houses, L.O.S.E. has a "secret" evil lair. The League is often at odds with other, more "important" super villains such as Skullossus and also tries to evade getting busted by Metrotown's heroes.

Doktor Frogg was originally created with grey hair, a grey lab coat, silver framed goggles and silver claws. His final design was later changed to dark green hair, a blue coat, gold framed goggles and gold claws. Voltar originally had a grey suit, which was changed to red. Doomageddon was also created as a grey Hellhound but was later changed to yellow. Red Menace was originally created with a red and white colour suit, but the suit was changed to just plain green.
