Joker (1989)

In 1989’s Batman, Joker (Jack Nicholson) becomes the Joker as we know him after mobster Carl Grissom sets up his second-in-command to be killed in a vat of chemicals. It doesn’t finish him off, but leaves him depraved and disfigured, with a maniacal laugh and deadly vendetta. Nicholson’s is a classic look that’s since been re-interpreted by Heath Ledger and Jared Leto.

Doctor Poison

In Wonder Woman, Doctor Poison (Elena Anaya) is the nickname of Isabel Maru, a deranged Spanish chemist who concocts poisons to cause people as much pain as possible. Due to a facial disfigurement, likely from an accident during her experimentation, Doctor Poison wears a ceramic mask on the left side of her face.

Wonder Woman (2017)

Wonder Woman (2017)

The new Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), who was unveiled in Batman v. Superman, sports a darker, more modern look compared to the original Wonder Woman. In the 2017 film, she is Amazon demigoddess Diana, a woman of strong ideals who is a fish out of water in WWII Europe.

Constantine

Constantine

In the 2005 film Constantine, John Constantine (Keanu Reeves) is a weary and cynical chain-smoker who, as in the TV series, is able to sense and communicate with half-demons and half-angels on Earth. He exorcises demons back to hell to earn favor with heaven and avoid eternal damnation for a suicide attempt in his youth.

Hugo Strange

In the DC Universe, Professor Hugo Strange is one of the earliest supervillains to face off against Batman, preceding Catwoman and even the Joker. He applies his psychology background and medical expertise to hatch plots to take down the Dark Knight.

The Spirit

The Spirit is a fictional masked crimefighter created by cartoonist Will Eisner. He’s a masked vigilante who fights crime with the blessing of the city’s police. I recommend finding a way to make your tie stick out to the side, probably by putting a wire into it.

Preacher

In Preacher, Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) is a small-town Texas preacher who is accidentally possessed by a supernatural creature called Genesis that is the product of an angel and demon coupling. With a strong sense of right and wrong, he’s on a mission to find God.

Supergirl

As a 13 year old girl, Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist) was given an intergalactic babysitting job by her parents, who sent her with the infant Kal-El from the doomed planet Krypton to Earth. During the journey, a mishap caused her to enter the Phantom Zone, where time stops, for 13 years. By the time she reached Earth, Kal-El had become a grown Superman, while Kara Zor-El was just learning to embrace her powers as Supergirl.

Zatanna

In the DC Comics, Zatanna is a superhero who uses magic as her superpower, at times working for the Justice League of America. Daughter of the legendary Zatara, she summons spells by speaking words and sentences backwards.

The Creeper

In the DC Universe, the Creeper (real name Jack Ryder) is a superhero with superhuman strength, speed, and healing. Befitting his name, he is like a creepy version of Superman, with the red cape and speedos but not much else covering him.
