Heliem can float about, and change itself into a highly flexible gas which can be set off at the slightest spark.

 

Sorry that's Hydrogen.  Helium is a Noble Gas and chemically neutral!

Polonium

 

When they need someone dead, they send in Polonium. This woman looks innocuous but can generate deadly radioactivity and kill anyone or leave them very sick indeed. She is known to get monstrously angry if one of the others gets hurt but differing reports make it any or all of them.

Einsteinium is the brains of the Periodic Perils, a discredited physicist whose theories have been roundly mocked by his peers.  He is also a powerful mentalist, which may be why a number of his more vocal peers have "mysteriously" committed suicide.

The next team is the quirky villain team Leapfrog.  These four villains are based off (as you might have guessed) frogs.

The villain known as Toadstool is known for two things: being a toad and making disgustingly large amounts of stool.

 

When Toadstool sent in his Cologuard testing kit to see if he had colorectal cancer, three lab technicians went insane and the facility itself has been quarantined by PRIMUS as an Extreme Hazard Site.

 

PRIMUS suspects some sort of dimensional breech occurred when the sample was opened. But after losing five agents just doing a preliminary inspection the facility, they're at something of a loss of how to proceed.

 

At least without help from some intrepid team of heroes....

Cane Toad is a skilled martial artist of the French savate style. His costume is basically a Victorian gentleman's tuxedo with a frog mask and gentleman's cane.

 

Also, his cane is said to contain hundreds of little weapons, most of them designed not to do direct damage to his foes, but instead set up favorable situations which would benefit him in combat (oil slicks, smoke pellets, etc...)

Californium is a surfer dude who causes nuclear reactions in his targets. Take Firestorm, turn him into a white metal statue come to life, add in the beach boys surfer stereotype.

I remember seeing something about this particular element in one of the pre-4th Ed. GURPS sourcebooks (I think that it was the Espionage

sourcebook, but I'm not sure), regarding its use as the key component of a .22-caliber nuclear bomb -- essentially, a nuke the size of an ink

pen.

 

Talk about a Bic(TM) that you don't wanna flick except by remote control from about a hundred miles away (:jawdrop:)...

Abdol Azlum was a mystic conman with hypnotic powers who searched the world for true mystical power. He was opposed by the heroic stage magician Melvin the Great, but he finally got the power he was looking for, just a few moments before said power killed him.

 

Now revived, Abdol seeks revenge on Melvin, for he thinks he never warned him about the power (in reality, he did, many times).

Doctor Despicable was one of the great 60s Masterminds and when he was defeated he would usually be 'killed' with his body disappearing in the grand denouement. Then he would return and the pattern would repeat itself. No-one knows who he last fought but it is thought that it caused the 1971 San Fernando earthquake (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1971_San_Fernando_earthquake) which also sealed the bad man in a tomb. It took him some time to recover and then to study and adapt to a changed world. Now he wants to find out who did what to him after of course that he has conquered the world.

Halftrack started as a rough cyborg during the war. His tracked legs gave him speed and maneuverability while his weapon of choice, the machine gun, gave him firepower. He was caught in an explosion during the invasion of Germany and thought dead. Now he is back with a vengeance

There have been many Dopplegangers over the years, from the romantic spy of the 60's who vexed Cold War Allies by seducing their agents to the Communists to the shapeshifting hero of the 80's to the face-stealing psychopath of the 90's to today's throwback who hails from the hidden city of Dopploppolis and can duplicate any superbeing that they see.

But the one who was a legend was WWII's master of disguise, a former actor who joined the war effort and used his uncanny skills to infiltrate first the French, then the British, and finally worked his way to America, where he lead a fifth column of saboteurs against the industrial cities of the US. He was finally killed by Detroit's namesake hero, Detroit Steel, when he leapt at the distracted hero, sailed over his head, and fell into the gears of the assembly line that he was trying to blow up.

Upon his mysterious return, he acclimated quickly to the modern world and now seeks to complete his final mission by bringing America down. He wears hats of both leftists and rightists, sowing dissent by enflaming each side against the other. He can be seen whispering in the ears of politicians, business leaders, and protest leader, then  anonymously posts on the Internet, dropping dank memes and false information. He knows that there is no greater weapon to turn against the nation than itself and is gleefully watching it tear itself apart.

As for Detroit Steel?

Doppleganger sits in a café in downtown Detroit, watching the city rot around him, content to not so much as lift a finger as the city slowly crumbles. Should another hero take up the mantle? They'll find Doppleganger ready to balance an old debt.

Professor Plunder  was mad scientist arch nemesis of inventor/adventurer Doc Copper. During the final clash between the two Plunder was pulled through a warp portal and ended up trapped in Dimension Z. He was finally able to escape through a rift that opened during a super battle. He emerged in the modern age a changed man. He has mastered control of the Zeta energy that makes up Dimension Z and used it to create an army of mindless automations that he calls his  Zubjects and taken the mantle King Plunder.
