The Red Queen of the Crazy Gang (Excalibur enemy) (Marvel Comics)

Red Queen

(Crazy Gang)

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


The Alice-in-Wonderland-gone-wrong Crazy Gang are Captain Britain enemies. They first appeared in 1984, when Alan Moore — back then an obscure writer — started his landmark Jim Jaspers story arc.

Powers and Abilities

The Red Queen possesses very limited combat ability, except for:

  1. Her sceptre, which she constantly carries around with her.
  2. The Executioner, who obeys her every word (which are fairly limited!).

The Queen will also shout out her war cry of “orf wiv ’is ’ead”, which rallies the Crazy Gang to combat, while her foes are normally left looking stunned and confused.

She is quite possibly the least intelligent member of the Crazy Gang, the Red Queen brings very little to the team, aside from her command of the Executioner.



See, say, the Jester’s character profile.


The Red Queen resembles a small, rather ugly man in drag. If you’ve seen Charlie Drake  in pantomime, you have it spot on.

She wears a red dress, with a red heart adorning her chest, and a gold tiara on her head. She has a piggy nose, crossed eyes, and wears far too much make up.


Doesn’t really have a personality. Her role is stand around shouting, and occasionally hitting people with her sceptre.

Her only method of communicating is by saying “orf wiv its ’ead” which is an extremely harsh drawback!


“Orf wiv ’is ’ead !”

DC Universe History

Crazy villains, they could be used by any number of bat foes to give the Batman some headaches.

Shouting is limited to the Red Queens normal phrase “orf wiv ’is/‘er/its ’ead”. As such, it must be done at the start of a battle, at which point any foe she scores RAPs against will automatically lose initiative against the Crazy Gang. The Crazy Gang are immune to this, and as soon as it’s announced the Executioner will enter Killing Combat.
