Sizematic appeared in but four DC Comics during the late 1970s. And half of those only saw print as roughs in Cancelled Comics Cavalcade.

As noted in Mayfair’s The New Titans Sourcebook (by John Terra), the foes of the Titans prior to the 1980s were unimpressive. Most, like Sizematic, were entirely and justifiably forgotten.

But we like forgotten characters. So we win. We always win, ah ah ah ah ah ah koff koff !



  • Real Name: Unrevealed.
  • Known Relatives: The two Sizematics were apparently twin brothers.
  • Group Affiliation: An unnamed group of super-operatives working for Two-Face, and the Secret Society of Super-Villains.
  • Base of Operations: The East Coast.

Powers & Abilities

Both brothers seemed to be fast, strong, and in excellent shape.

They appeared to be well-trained in hand-to-hand combat. The twins could engage even Robin (Richard Grayson).

One twin could grow to become at least six metres (20 feet) tall. The other could shrink to become, at most, doll-sized.

Their costumes may or may not have been armoured.

Sizematic - DC Comics - Titans - vs. Robin


In 1977, Two-Face (Harvey Dent) assembled a gang of superhuman twins.

All six (the Sizematic twins, the Darklight twins, and the Flamesplasher twins) had powers opposite to their twin. For instance, one Flamesplasher twin shot fire and the other water.

He had them conduct simultaneous, symmetrical robberies in Gotham City and New York City. The Teen Titans intervened, but did not fare well.

On their first attempt, the Titans underestimated their opponents’ power. In particular, Sizematic took Robin down with one punch.

During the second encounter, the Titans charged in expecting the same powers… but ran into the opposite of what they anticipated.

Yet the youths eventually prevailed.

Secret Society of Super-Villains

In 1978, the Silver Ghost (Raphael van Zandt) contacted Earth-1’s Secret Society of Super-Villains. He went over their files three times to select a task force capable of beating the Freedom Fighters.

Team leaders Mirror Master (Samuel Scudder) and Copperhead were dubious. Since some members (such as Sizematic, Quakemaster (Robert Coleman) or Killer Moth) were at best second-rate.

During this plan, Silver Ghost led Doll Man (Darrel Dane) and Uncle Sam into an ambush set by Copperhead and the Sizematic twins. The twins vanquished Doll Man, who did not expect fighting two opponents – and both having size-changing powers.

Sizematic - DC Comics - Titans - vs. Aqualad


Both twins look identical, of course, of course.

Their costume is oddly reminiscent of the Silver Samurai (Harada Keniuchio)’s.

It is also adorned with an incongruous, bright red bullseye motif on the chest. If there’s a link between that and size-changing, I don’t get it.

They seemed to have brute-like, somewhat bestial facial features.


Domineering brutes who think they’re clever.

The twins coordinate particularly well with each other.

Dex: 04 Str: 04 Bod: 04
Int: 03 Wil: 03 Min: 03

One twin has Shrink: 06 and the other has Growth: 06.

Bonuses and Limitations:

When using their Powers to escape from bonds, both twins received a +1CS AV/EV Special Bonus.


Martial artist: 05


Lightning Reflexes.


Underworld (Low).


None demonstrated.








COSTUME [BODY 04, Blunting: 04].

Design notes

The Blunting for the COSTUME is arbitrary. It allows it to be protective, without getting in the way of Mal taking the twins down with a magic sling.

Martial Artist: 05 is slightly highballed. But a 04 wouldn’t quite fit either.

The “breaking free of bonds” bonus is there to give them a little extra something, based on what little material exists.

Usual dynamic – baddies steamroll goodies during early encounters, then get steamrolled back. So usual assumption – they spent all their Hero Points whereas the Titans didn’t, then the Titans spent some and won.

So frex I’m assuming that the blow that took down Robin (OV 06 at most) was AV-boosted using HPs. Little need for an EV boost though – Robin had BODY 04, and was Blindsided by Sizematic suddenly growing.

Not enough data to precisely set APs of Power. At first I conservatively went for 05s, but the shrinker seemed almost on par with Doll Man (Shrinking: 07). So heh, 06s seem reasonable.
