Argus (Batman and the Outsiders enemy) (DC Comics)


(New Olympians)

Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game


Argus is an obscure opponent of Batman & the Outsiders. He was only seen in one 1984 story.

He’s conveniently generic and undetailed, *and* he’s part of a themed team (Antaeus, Diana, Nox, Proteus, Vulcanus). So having notes for these guys sounds good to us.

Powers and Abilities

Argus can see distant scenes as if he were standing there. Our game stats assumes that he can also hear, smell, etc. the distant scene.


The New Olympians is a group of mortal supervillains who were given their abilities by the Monitor.

They were assembled by Maxie Zeus to assault the 1984 Olympic Games in L.A., with President Reagan  in attendance. Batman intervened and challenged the New Olympians to compete with his Outsiders in a variety of contests.

Argus’ sole role was to watch the matches and relay the results to Zeus and Batman.

Shy nerdish sycophant.


“I can see them in my mind ! Just as you said, Mister Zeus.”
