Joshua Bartley is a former Real Life Supervillain in North Carolina. He is currently branch leader of the North Carolina Initiative.


J.B. first surfaced as Zyklon-B in 2007-2008 on the World Superhero Registry website and forums, calling out self-proclaimed real-life superheroes who weren't up to his standards. He also hosted a horror-centric BlogTalk radio show called "The Theatre of Creeps."[1]

He was announced as branch leader of the North Carolina Initiative on July 13, 2020.[2]


One of few RLSV willing to divulge the details of his real life, Joshua Bartley is an EMT, manages a nursing home, and has a degree in criminal justice. He's done homeless outreach, is a writer, poet, and musician, and even helped organize and build a memorial rock garden for two women that were murdered in a bank robbery.[3]
