The Fraternity of Torment was a supervillain team on The Venture Bros.

They were organized at the end of the 1960s to fight Team Venture.[1] Though the Fraternity suffered a critical blow almost as soon as it was conceived, FoT apparently still exists intact today to remain a competitor for The Guild of Calamitous Intent and The Peril Partnership.[2]

History[edit | edit source]

The Fraternity was organized, or at least held its first summit at Spider-Skull Island, in 1969. Of its founders, Scaramantula was perhaps its most ardent. Brainulo only joined in order to get revenge on Jonas Venture Sr., and Dr. Fangdragon was merely a facade for Jonas. Almost as soon as the first summit started, Team Venture ambushed and routed the villains, rescuing young Rusty Venture and claiming Spider-Skull Island for themselves.[1]

The Fraternity of Torment still exists to this day, though it has fewer villains than the Guild of Calamitous Intent, at least according to Guild numbers.[2]
