Founding Members

The initial six main characters were chosen by the producers, from a list of potential candidates of 50 to 60 DC Comics teenage superheroes.[1] The criteria consisted of age, powers, personality, cultural icon status, and dynamics.[2] An additional regular, Zatanna, was introduced partway through the first season, and Rocket was added at the end of the first season.[1]

Expanded members

The following members were added to the team after the series premiere at different times:

"The Outsiders"

The Outsiders are a group of teen superheroes that work as part of the Team, but in the limelight.

"Sentinels of Magic"

The Sentinels of Magic is a school of magical-based superheroes tutored by Zatanna. After stopping the Child's reign of chaos, they all (except for Mary) enter an unwritten contract with Nabu to temporarily become Doctor Fate, a duty which they will share with both Zatanna and Zatara.

Recurring characters

Justice League

New Gods of New Genesis


The Light

The group was conceived by Vandal Savage who views himself as a first among equals.[30] The leaders act as a board of directors, their identities known only to a select few individuals that work with them.[31] The end goal is improve humanity and set it as a dominant race in the universe: they view the superheroes as interfering with the natural order of things and that Earth must employ survival of the fittest if it intends to exist and thrive in an ever-changing universe.
