Juice was a member of the Ultimen.


Juice was a mostly silent electrokinetic. When he did speak, a bolt of electricity changed his voice into a low gravel. Upon learning that they were part of an experiment to creating superpowered clones with implanted memories, the Ultimen rebelled against their benefactor Maxwell Lord. During their attack on the labs used to create them, the Ultimen were confronted by members of the Justice League. Juice was defeated by Batman, who used water to short-circuit the electric Ultiman. After their arrest, the Ultimen (except Long Shadow, who had shifted his allegiance to the Justice League) were taken to Cadmus where they are assumed to have soon died in captivity from cellular degeneration.

In order to support Galatea's attack on the Justice League Watchtower, Cadmus manufactured an army of Ultimen clones, including Juice. While retaining the Ultimen's powers and expertise in using them, the clones were essentially mindless, possessing no free will so as to be used only as living metahuman weapons of destruction (which, ironically, was what the original Ultimen feared the government wanted them to be all along). The clones served to distract the League while Galatea went after the reactor. However, the assault failed as the League successfully defended their home in a massive battle.

Powers and abilities[]

  • Electrokinesis: Juice had the power of electrokinesis; he could generate and control electricity. He could also transform himself into living electricity and transport himself as an electric current, similar to Livewire.

Background information[]

Juice as well as the rest of the Ultimen are based on original characters from the Super Friends series. Juice is an update of Black Vulcan, who was created as a fill-in for Black Lightning (who himself could not be used at all in the DCAU because of disputes between DC and Tony Isabella, Black Lightning's creator).
