120. Trickster (4 points)

Born into a family of circus aerialist known as the Flying Jesses, young Giovanni Giuseppe did not want to perform due to a fear of heights.

To overcome his fear he invented a pair of air-walking shoes to support his weight on the highline. Longing for new challenges Giovanni changed is name and turned to crime in imitation of his idol Jesse James as the Trickster.

He also played a big part in the series Countdown, but we do not like to talk bout that.

119. Cavalier (5 points)

During Batman's early years, a stunt man named Hudson Pyle wanted to be a superhero. At first his reasons were selfish since he wanted to gain but began to change into more honorable ones. During his time he was famous for his sharp swords and quick wits and even his handsome smile. However, his superhero days began to come to an end when he fell in love with a young woman, who was being blackmailed by some gangsters. The gangsters learned about her connection to Cavalier and blackmailed him into committing crimes for them. The Cavaliers fame began to deteriorate and driven to the edge, he killed his blackmailers. This led to a fight with Batman and the police where he was gunned down by the police.

 

118. T.O. Morrow (5 points)

T.O. Morrow is the inventor of the Red Tornado and a frequent foe to the Justice League.

In his earliest days, he was a college professor and mentor to Will Magnus, the inventor of the Metal Men.

His first notable invention was a special television set which allowed him to see into the future. He used this Imagedevice to study future technology and reverse engineer it in the modern day. Unfortunately, he often used this technology to commit crimes, earning him the ire of Earth's heroes.

However, Morrow's most memorable feat would be the invention of the Red Tornado, an advanced android who could generate hurricane force winds. The scientist programmed his robot to apply for membership in the Justice League and sabotage a number of their missions. However, the Red Tornado came to view Earth’s heroes as his friends, and soon rebelled against his creator. With his help, the League was able to capture Morrow and send him to prison.

Unfortunately, prison would not hold the ingenious inventor for long. He soon escaped and collaborated with the evil Professor Ivo to create the Tomorrow Woman, an android with telepathic powers. The scientist used her to infiltrate the Justice League in much the same way as he had with the Red Tornado. However, like her predecessor, the Tomorrow Woman began to care for her teammates in the Justice league. She eventually managed to fight her programming and help the heroes capture her creators.

Later, in what would become his most ambitious scheme, Morrow invented a time machine, and used it to travel back to the 1940’s. His plan was to sell futuristic technology before it would have naturally been invented, thus greatly advancing human civilization, and making him a rich man. However, this greatly altered the timestream and had disastrous effects on human history. For this reason, the Justice League traveled back in time, and with the Justice Society’s help, was able to capture him before his plan came to fruition.

Most recently, Morrow was seen along with a number of famous scientists on Oolong Island. These great thinkers had been kidnapped by Intergang and forced to develop advanced weaponry. However, after Black Adam attacked the facility, he escaped. His current activities are uncertain
