Legion of Doom
The foremost meeting of supervillains, including Dr. Victor Von Doom, Doctor Octopus, Solomon Grundy, Cheetah, Black Manta, David Blaine, Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, Kim Jong-il, General Disarray and Professor Chaos was first convened by Christopher Reeve in his hideout in the swamp behind his Colorado vacation home, determined to become the most powerful union of evil supervillains and of course, to destroy Gene Hackman... their efforts failed, as Hackman emerged victorious by illegalizing stem cell research and banning Reeve to the Phantom Zone.
Actor Tom Cruise later created a similar organization, made up of over two-hundred pissed-off and angry celebrities who had been attacked or insulted by the town of South Park. The announcer identified Cruise's Colorado vacation home as the Legion of Doom, as the celebrities plotted to abduct Muhammad, the holy prophet of the Muslim faith, and use his power not to be ridiculed to free themselves of libel and slander. Their efforts were foiled by the Super Best Friends and they all returned to their respective day jobs.
- The Legion of Doom is an organization from the Super Friends TV series, parodied in the episode Super Best Friends, consisting of several major DC Comics villains. The South Park version, of course, includes many of the show's villains as well as those from DC Comics and rival Marvel Comics.
- The only people to appear in both iterations of the Legion of Doom are Osama bin Laden and David Blaine.
