Shaggy Man is league buster and Ivo is the creator/operator of Amazo. besides, Johns is revamping lesser knowns. lots of villains that are big now were considered lame at one point

Posted by Icarusflies

@Avenging-X-Bolt: I'm pretty sure Johns worked with them already...I'd rather have Amazo than Ivo, and I've never cared about Shaggy even when he was the General.

i dont get what this has to do with anything

I'd rather have Amazo than Ivo,

they kind of go hand in hand

and I've never cared about Shaggy even when he was the General.

fair enough. i just think its kind of dumb to denounce a team thats known for its expansiveness due to four (technically 3) members

of course you didn't include what appears to be machine copies of Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman (those are who were chasing Dark Arrow/Green Arrow) so depending on how many others have been created that could seriously increase the threat of the SSoSV

yeah, i just kinda chalked them up as Ivo lackeys and left it at that.

There's also this...

Justice League #6

I think the guy in shadows is supposed to be Ra's Al Ghul (based on the shape of his own shadows), not really sure about the other guy

Could we consider Multiplex a member too?

it doesnt really look like him. no beard and such. his cufflink looks different here, it looks like Pandora's box now. guess that proves MR. V isnt a member

Could we consider Multiplex a member too?

i have no idea....has he shown any connection to them?

@Avenging-X-Bolt: I probably should clarify: I'm not impressed with this group assuming that Ivo/Shaggy Man/Blockbuster are among the LEADERS of the group. If they're just lackeys, I don't care.

lol, well Blockbuster and Saggy aren't exactly thinkers so i think its safe to assume they aren't leaders. Ivo might be in the inner circle (assuming they have one. but according to solicits, this incarnation will have only one leader)

Shouldn't Cheetah be considered a shoo-in after her arc in Justice League?

So are cheetah and black manta part of this society considering past teasers show they are working together and implying they are working with others as well.

So who's the leader? your status says it.

For now we know

Unknown leader

Ivo

and all the characters who appeared in the pictures shown at the end of JL#17

Scarecrow

Black Manta

Captain Cold

Gorilla Grodd

Poison Ivy

Copperhead

Killer Frost

Felix Faust

and some more whom I couldn't recognize/get a clear visual of.

I agree with Icarusfiles,feels underwhelming TBH especially compared to the Libra and Alexander Luthor versions of the Society.

@Avenging-X-Bolt: I ask the same question as @entropy_aegis: does. Who is the new leader of the Society and how do you know this?

sorry, false alarm. i had thought that the leader was Mr.V, an old Martain Manhunter villain but after seeing the Jim Lee version of the Ivo/Shadowy figure scan, i can see i was wrong.

It Doesnt look so bad to me. im glad that they're using lesser used (but not necessarily less dangerous) villians. and we still dont know if its complete yet

Posted by Lvenger

@Avenging-X-Bolt: And there I thought you were onto something. I'll have a look at who this Mr V is but I doubt DC would be willing to delve that far back into their history.

Maybe Despero and Major Force will be members.

Sounds promising, there seems to be good treatment to B-List superheroes, but there are little to no appearances of B or C-List villains, I'm looking forward to it.

yeah, EA told us about this. but thanks for the scan.

Grodd and Captain Cold? They were on opposite sides of Grodd's attempted takeover of Central City.

One is Blockbuster. The green guy kinda looks like Mirror Master, but I'm not entirely sure it's him.

Edited by colonyofcells

The scaly guy might be Killer Croc who has already appeared in the New 52 with Roy Harper. The villain with green helmet could be a rebooted Angle Man or new costume for Mirror Master.

Might be, he is apparently slated to fight Katana soon, but the coloring is throwing me off. then again the snake guy fighting Catwoman looks nothing like that guy in the image so its possible they arent the same

WAIT!  Wait, wait, wait, WAIT!!!
 
"Shaggy" man?  There's a character called "SHAGGY" man????   Is there also a Scooby Dog?

Edited by colonyofcells

Leader has a cane, wears gloves and has a cane. Could the leader be Ras Al Ghul or maybe it is just Funky Flashman. The cane could be Libra's weapon so maybe it is just a rebooted Libra.

Posted by SaintG

nice list. Oh and I think that these are going to be in the society JOKER BLACK MANTA and CAPTAIN COLD as they are shown at 2013 toy fair in a seven pack of the secret society new 52 figures.BOOM! Also from their important roles in events ocean master and cheetah are likely ish.

Posted by Doomlurker

Copperhead showed up in Justice League #18 being fought by Black Canary. Also in Justice League of America #2 we see the leader, he also wears a bowler hat. It's also quite clearly a robot Batman but I'm not sure what's happening with the Superman and Wonder Woman...

i saw the guy, he looks like The Outsider .

Posted by russia599

Also Pandora is set to go head to head against the Secret Society and both Solicitations reveled a good image of some members.

Posted by russia599

From this I can Scarecrow, who's already been confirmed, Blockbuster, who again has already been confirmed, Copperhead, I believe he looks too snake like to be Killer Croc, Mister Freeze, which hasn't popped up at all and the mysterious leader.

Here is a picture of their leader, coming from the variant for next issue :

Huhn, he does actually look a little like the Outsider.

he looks pretty freakin awesome if i do say so myself.

yup. i'm hoping he's a hybrid of the Outsider and Mr.V

Posted by Veshark

@avenging_x_bolt

The MMH villain? Don't know much about that guy.

Either way, I'm quite interested in how this'll turn out. The New 52's been itching for a villain counterpart to the Leagues.
