Continuing on from the past three threads for season 1, season 2 (Invasion), and season 3 (Outsiders), here is the thread to compile the appearances of new DC characters in season 4 (Phantoms). As a recap, season 1 had 179 total and season 2 had 62 bringing that to 241. We don't know if Greg Weisman counts the comics in this 241 number so we have a different designation for them. Weisman has not stated the total number in Outsiders or Phantoms. The previous thread ended in 366 characters, but I will be starting at 364 because Genghis Khan's sons were later revealed to be based on real life figures rather than DC characters.

Below is a list of characters and their appearance orders. The following key will denote special events.

I can't tell which column is supposed to represent a code name and which is supposed to be the real identity. They aren't consistent.

Episode 1 Inhospitable

S'turnn J'axx is based on King Jaxx.

J'arlia J'axx is based on Jarlia/Jarlla.

K'omm B'lanxx is based on Commander Benn Blanx.

R'ohh K'arr is based on Roh'kar.

Chameleon Boy and Phantom Girl first appear incognito in this episode.

Cullen Row makes his voice debut. Ben Diskin, voice of Ma'alefa'ak doubles as Cullen.

One of the Martians poses as Stargirl (but the real one appears in a photo in Episode 2 then for real in Episode 3).

J'ann alludes to a Sorcerer-Priestess who is revealed to be Sy'raa S'mitt in Episode 2.

Episode 2 Needful

J'emm J'axx is based on Jemm.

Sy'raa S'mitt is based on Syraa/Syrra.

Beast Boy refers to a form he jokingly calls Detective Chimp.

S'yraa invokes one of the Martian gods, C'eridy'all.

In Beast Boy's photo, it appears the Outsiders have five new members: Lia Briggs is now Looker, Livewire, Wendy Jones is now Windfall, Courtney Whitmore is now Stargirl, and Robin (Tim).

In the end credits, Perdita's surname is revealed to be Vladek. It appears to be a coincidence "Vladek" was the name of a bar in Little Vlatava in New York City in a Manhunter #7.

Saturn Girl, Phantom Girl, and Chameleon Boy speak for the first time in the series.

11/6: Episode 3 "Volatile" had nothing new.

Episode 4 "Involuntary" was sparse aside from K'arr M'angg, based on an obscure 70s Martian villain Karmang the Evil who appeared in All-New Collectors' Edition #C-58 (1978).

Episode 5 "Tale of Two Sisters"

Onyx makes her debut on the series.

Talia al Ghul has her first speaking lines, voiced by Zehra Fazal like in the DC Showcase short, Batman: Death in the Family.

Mist appears to be a member of the Team.

Debut of Royal University.

Red Arrow refers to Green Arrow's weapon cache as The Vault (rather than Arrowcave)

Onyx mentions Killer Croc.

Terra's words are a play on Scandal Savage.

Spoiler mentions her father Cluemaster.

11/12: Episode 6 Artemis Through The Looking-Glass

Only new character was Rictus.

Onyx referenced Will Everett/Amazing Man (though not related in the comics)

Wonder Girl references Weather Wizard

Cheshire reveals Orphan's real name is Cassandra Wu-San.

Many designations of Outsiders are revealed:
-Robin/Tim Drake is D12
-Blue Beetle is D03
-Kid Flash is D04
-Static is D05
-El Dorado is D07
-Stargirl is D13
-Livewire is D14

11/18: Episode 7 The Lady, or the Tigress?

Barbara mentions the Penguin. (She also mentions Two-Face, but he already appeared, he had a cameo in the 2011 Free Comic Book Day story "Face Your Fears" and Batman and Robin [Tim] investigated his apartment in #23 of the comic)

Barbara mentions "Jason." This is first mention of Jason Todd's name in the series. (Although his full name was mentioned in Robin's bio for Young Justice: Legacy)

Martian Manhunter calls Hawkwoman by her first name "Shayera," the first time it is said in the series. Her last name "Thal" was mentioned last season in episode 3x14 "Influence".

Nightwing hails A33 for a medivac.

Who doesn't Zehra Fazal voice at this point :rolleyes2:.

So are we going to just call him "Jonny" until he starts going by "Jon" :sweat:?

lol. I knew someone would comment on that. Well, Fazal's in the lead this season right now with 10 major roles - Halo, Harper Row, J'arlia J'axx, Sy'raa S'mitt, Windfall, Lian Nguyen-Harper, Cassandra Savage, Talia al Ghul, Hawkwoman, and now Martha Kent - twice as much as #2, Troy Baker. So she's gonna probably be the go-to this season.

Mary! Finally :D!

I wonder how this show might work in Gemworld...
Voice debut of Blue Devil, Troy Baker.
I wonder if they made him Irish because his last name is "Cassidy" :p?
Full name of Mist confirmed to be Andie Murphy. Vandal's original name Vandar Adg spoken.
Explains a lot about her that she's not actually Nash Nimbus...
Mary references Mercury, Zeus, and Hercules.
Of any show that I could actually expect to possibly explore the Marvel Family's connections to Greek mythology and how that tracks with Wonder Woman, YJ would be it :).

Episode 10: Nomed Esir!!

Debuts of Arion, Jason Blood, and Etrigan.

Merlin is mentioned by Etrigan.

Vandar now goes by Varl'Jat. No clue if that is from the comics or real world history.

No clue what Psy-Backs are, from comics or created for this show.

The classic demon jekyll/hyde of the DCU finally makes his debut :cool:.

I wonder if Bourassa was still involved if his design would've been more of a direct rip from the DCAMU :p?

I guess it makes sense Arion would show up since the show went for "Orin" with Aquaman :oops:.
Merlin is mentioned by Etrigan.
And his half-brother, no less :eek:.

12/10: Weisman said when Phantoms concludes, there are a total of 759 characters but some are only mentioned/referenced. After the season finale streams, we will start posting his list on Ask Greg.

12/16: Episode 11 "Teg Ydaer!"

New characters include Jane Nassour, Muhammed Nassour, Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, Mercury, and I suppose Sergeant Marvel might be included in the count.

Of note, Jane Nassour's first name in the comics is Elizabeth. And in the credits, Mary's alter ego is listed as Sergeant.

Eric Lopez takes over as the voice of Billy Batson.

I get why they went with that take on the Marvel Family codenames but I just can't get into that for Mary's Superhero name...

I think it's just as Billy as that age as we saw or that Mary remembered since Chad Lowe was playing older Billy in season 3. Although I feel Lopez is a much better Jaime than he is Billy...

Episode 12: Og Htrof Dna Reuqnoc!

New characters includes Sindella and Johnny Drew.

2 characters who appeared in season one are named in this episode and turn out to be name characters, Charlie Daggett and Penny Randall. Thus it is their voice debuts, Charlie voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson and Penny by Lauren Tom. So who knows if the other children in the bus are DC characters, too...

Charlie Daggett was a bus driver from Superboy #137 (April 1967) and Penny Randall was from Teen Titans #2 (April 1966).

Johnny Drew is an obscure 70s Supergirl/Adventure Comics character. Johnny was a cameraman working for KSFTV, a subsidiary of Galaxy Communications in San Francisco where Supergirl worked in her civilian identity of Linda Danvers.

It was nice to see Sindella make an on-screen appearance and not abandon her daughter...I had other issues with her use, but still, something :p.

I can see predictions of Nickelodeon Making the next Sonic Cartoon after Sonic Prime, Mainly Because they mentioned Sonic the Hedgehog on today's Broadcast of the Dallas-49ers Wild Card Game on Nickelodeon

And the Sonic Movie 2 TV spot.

Talk about going the extra mile.
One thing I like about Amazon and Netflix original films is that they’re greenlighting or picking up movies that are riskier,niche,or alternative then most major studio films in the last 5 years or so.

Sure they’re not all winners but at least you can tell they give writers and directors more freedom with their projects
today marks the first anniversary of when tvguide.com had rebranded their website.
