The Legion of Doom. The anti-Justice League. If you're satisfied with the classic 13 members, (Luthor, Grodd, Brainiac, Cheetah, Capt. Cold, Sinestro, Bizzaro, Giganta, Black Manta, Riddler, Scarecrow, Solomon Grundy, & Toyman), that's fine. But, I decided to revamp the membership a little:
1. I started by deciding how many members there'd be. I went with thirteen, as a nod to the classic Legion.

2. I knew Lex Luthor would be the leader, of coarse. Not only that, but like the Injustice League Unlimited, I also added Joker and Cheetah. Lex, Joker, & Cheetah. The "anti-three", if you will. The opposing forces to Superman, Batman, & Wonder Woman. That left me with 10 open spaces.

3. Taking a hint from the first 3, I also added each respective nemesis of the other 4 iconic JLA members:
Aquaman - Black Manta
Green Lantern - Sinestro
Flash - Captain Cold
Martian Manhunter - Ma'alefa'ak (ma-leh-fuh-ack)
I now had 6 open spaces

4. After seeing the trailer for DC Universe Online (the one with the big fight in the alternate future), I decided that Deathstroke the Terminator, Circe, and Black Adam were major villains, so I added them, leaving me with 3 spaces left.

5. In Alex Ross's "Justice", Luthor, Brainiac, & Gorilla Grodd founded the legion. I already had Luthor, and Brainiac isn't much of a team player, so I added Grodd. 2 spaces remained.

6. Finally, as a drawback to the classic legion, I added Bizarro and Giganta. Makes sense, since Bizarro is one of the few people who can go toe-to-toe with Superman.

FINAL ROSTER: Lex Luthor, the Joker, Cheetah, Circe, Deathstroke the Terminator, Gorilla Grodd, Black Adam, Black Manta, Sinestro, Captain Cold, Ma'alefa'ak, Bizarro, & Giganta.
My Legion of Doom. I personally think "Injustice Gang" and "Secret Society of Super Villains" are kinda stupid names. "Injustice Society of the World" is a nice name, but I'm saving it for a different team.

Finally, a Legion with the Joker in it. His absence in the original is why I did this in the first place. Only a handful have had him. The clown prince of crime may be see himself as the sole rightful killer of the dark knight, but when the endgame is the League, or the world, Joker's all in. (ha-ha! get it?) Alexander Luthor didn't let him into the Secret Society during "Infinite Crisis" and got his acid-burned head splattered over an alley in Gotham.

For those who don't know who Ma'alefa'ak (or Malefic) is, he's Martian Manhunter's evil twin (literally), and unlike other Martians born with neither telepathy or weakness to fire. He'll be in the upcoming animated film "Justice League: Doom".

I just realized that the Riddler in the picture I used looks just like the Riddler from LEGO Superheroes
