    Secret Society of Super-Villains (01-Original)
Search for 'Secret Society of Super-Villains (01-Original)' on Amazon

The original formation of the SSoSV was somewhat secretly created by Darkseid. (The Paul Kirk Manhunter clone was originally shown to be the driving force behind the Society.) They convened, then later resided, at the Sinister Citadel. They were typically seen in action against the JLA.

Often shown in the throws of a power struggle, Lex Luthor and Wizard competed for the affections of the members.

Meanwhile, Captain Comet and Manhunter, who had apparently joined the team under a misapprehension of the group's goals, tried to "work from within" to reform the villains there collected. They, of course, failed, and eventually ended up being seen as regularly opposed to the group.

After a time, when the true leader, Darkseid, made his significance to the group more apparent, the group openly rebelled and splintered into a Luthor-led team and a Wizard-led team. These two splinters of the original Society never enjoyed a significant number of comic panels, and were mostly theoretical. However, their existence was confirmed by the two 21st-century Societies. One, the Wizard's reformed Society, was only really seen acting independently in the JLA arc, Crisis of Conscience. The other was the more famous co-star of the Villains United series, which apparently included not only a reformation of Luthor's branch of the original SSoSV, but virtually every villain in the DCU, including Wizard himself. The Wizard's presence in Villain's United strongly suggested that, following Crisis of Conscience, he had folded his group back into Luthor's.
