The Discriminators are a group that appear in the Sonic the Comic series published by Fleetway Editions. They were a team of gaudily-dressed supervillains from New Tek City in the Special Zone.


The Discriminators frequently clashed with the Justice Brigade, an equally bizarre team of superheroes, although their reason for doing so was simply because fighting each other is what heroes and villains do. They also occasionally fought the Chaotix Crew.

They were led by Baron X, who resembled a green anthropomorphic frog with an X-shaped scar on his forehead.[1]


  • The Justice Brigade and Discriminators are intended as parodies of American comic book superhero teams, who (according to writer Nigel Kitching) seem to "knock hell out of each other for no particular reason".[2]
