|Rogue of:||Wonder Woman, Justice League|
|Voiced by:||Robert Englund|
Felix Faust was a practitioner of dark magic, a pursuit that cost him his university teaching job, and, ultimately, his soul.
A former professor of archaeology, Faust began to dabble in the mystic arts. When his peers learned of his extracurricular activities, Faust was shunned from academic circles. Faust vowed revenge and spent his time going deeper and deeper into the dark magics. Faust managed to come into contact with the Greek god of the underworld, Hades, who was currently banished to the Pits of Tartarus. Living up to his namesake, Faust made a deal with Hades: in exchange for freeing Hades, Faust would receive ultimate knowledge from Hades.
Faust blackmailed Wonder Woman into searching the world for relics that, when joined together, would form a key of sorts that would open the gates to the Pit. However, Hades was manipulating Faust the whole time and when he was briefly free, he bestowed his own brand of ultimate knowledge to Faust—mortality—and aged Faust tremendously. When Hades was returned to the Pit, Faust disintegrated into dust and was sucked in as well.
His former student Tala cast a spell to extract Faust's spirit that was writhing at the gates of Tartarus, close to extinguishing, and imprisoned him in a mirror. Faust bode his time and used the acquisition of the Annihilator as a window to escape and get his revenge on Hades using the Annihilator, causing an imbalance in the supernatural order, felt by the League's magical members. He immerses himself in ancient, forbidden knowledge in Hades' library, planning on spending all eternity, or at least 5 millennia, reading them. However, Wonder Woman was alerted by the gods and, along with Shayera Hol, destroyed the Annihilator, leaving only a tiny little portion of Faust's soul remaining. Hades announced that he would spend the next few millennia torturing it, to which Diana and Shayera raised no objection.
