Note: generic, unnamed henchmen

This record is used for generic, unnamed henchmen working for villains.

Henchmen are usually male, but occasionally they may be female. Usually, "female henchmen" are identified by name. They are often "molls" (girlfriends or lovers of the lead villain). This generic "henchmen" listing would not apply to such characters.

Unnamed henchmen most often were non-descript clothing, but sometimes unnamed henchmen dress in matching uniforms designed to complement the head villain's costume or theme.

This entry should not be used when a villain's henchmen are named or when they are members of an identifiable group (such as "Nazis" or "A.I.M. agents").

Number of group members listed below: 185
