Anansi

  • Real name is Kwaku Anansi
  • God of wisdom and trickery
  • Enemies are Dam-Ayido and Sagbata
  • Has super-human strength that can life up to 25 tons, which also includes stamina and resistance to injury
  • Can tap into and manipulate ambient and magical energies for a variety of effects like shapeshifting
  • He intorduced the concept of day and night.

Buluku

  • Real name is Nana-Buluku
  • God of the sky
  • Enemies are Set, Chthon, and Thanos
  • Superhuman strength, stamina, and resistance to harm
  • Can manipulate the universe's ambient cosmic energies but has not been demonstrated yet

Dam-Ayido

  • Real name is Dan-Ayido-Hwedo and sometimes known as Damballah
  • God of the dead and serpents
  • Enemies are Marie LaVeau and possibly the Avengers
  • His powers consist of being imortal, like all of the African Voodoo Gods. He has not aged since reaching adulthood and cannot die by any conventional means. He is immune to all terrestrial diseases and if he is wounded he is healed from his godly life force in superhuman speed. In order for him to even come close to dieing, it would take something in great magnitude that it disperses a major portion of his bodily molecules to cause him a physical death. And even that may not kill him.
  • Takes the physical form of a snake but can shift into other human or non-humans forms
  • Has the power to control others
