League of Super Evil (initialized as L.O.S.E. or LOSE) is a Canadian animated comedy television series inspired by the sketch "Once Were Heroes" by Ryan Harper-Brown,[citation needed] co-created by Philippe Ivanusic-Vallee, Davila LeBlanc and Peter Ricq and developed by Asaph Fipke. The series was produced by Nerd Corps Entertainment in association with YTV.

The series aired for 52 episodes from 7 March 2009 to 25 August 2012. Reruns ended on YTV on 2 September 2014, when Teletoon picked up for additional reruns; the series also aired in the UK on CBBC, in Australia on ABC1 and ABC3, and internationally on Cartoon Network, on Disney XD and on Nickelodeon.


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

When the series was first announced in October 2006, it under went many changes for the title and main characters; Voltar was originally called The Great Voltar. His costume was green and yellow instead of red. Doktor Frogg originally had a steel jaw and did not wear goggles. Red Menace was meant to be a former Soviet supervillain (hence his name). His original design wore a thick red fur coat and a fur hat that incorporated the Red Star (a communist symbol) on it. Doomageddon did not exist in the original concept. In his place was a crawling hooded character described as embodying "the spirit of a hyperactive Neanderthal toddler". The series' title was originally just known as League of Evil.
