    The character grid can be broken up into categories, in the following order:

    -Story mode heroes (unlocked by playing through the main game)
    -Other heroes (unlocked by buying them from the gold brick gates scattered throughout Gotham, usually up on buildings-you'll need a certain number of gold bricks for each, running all the way up to all 250 for the last one)
    -Villains (appear in Gotham after activating the remote bat-terminals around the city, must be fought and beaten to purchase)
    -Alter-egos and civilians (also purchased by building gates-these are usually on ground level and tend to run a bit cheaper then the superhero gates)
    -Goons (found throughout the city in groups, cleaning out an attacking gang will usually prompt the last one to surrender and let you purchase him)

    The far left and right columns of the grid are custom characters. They're unlocked by checking out the left side of the Batcave once you've beaten the story, though to the best of my knowledge you don't have to mess with them at all for this achievement (there is one for using a test character, however).

    Beyond that, here's a list of the characters, where to find most of 'em, and what they're used for in terms of abilities/achievements. Did not mark all the specific locations/brick requirements on the gates as I went along, unfortunately.

    Top row:
    Batman-Unlocked after story level 1
    Robin-Unlocked after story level 1
    Superman-Unlocked after story level 8 (though you'll play as him in level 5 and get him in free roam after level 7, it's not until level 8 that he's actually added to the grid)
    Green Lantern-Unlocked after level 14
    Cyborg-Unlocked after level 14
    Flash-Unlocked after level 15
    Wonder Woman-Unlocked after level 15
    Martian Manhunter-Found in a gold brick gate, northwest part of the central island. Needs 175 gold bricks to build. Necessary for the Justice League achievement.
    Aquaman-Found in a gold brick gate. Necessary for the Justice League achievement. Needed for some minikits and a citizen in peril (stands in for water-walking and water-spraying when Robin's Hazard Suit isn't available).
    Hawkman-Found in a gold brick gate.

    Second row:
    Hawkgirl-Found in a gold brick gate. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Huntress-Found in a gold brick gate. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Batgirl-Found in a gold brick gate. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Supergirl-Found in a gold brick gate, a little to the east of the Gotham Zoo terminal. Needs all 250 gold bricks. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Black Canary-Found in a gold brick gate. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement. She can stand in for the sonic blast of Batman's Bat Suit.
    Lex Luthor-Found by the Yacht Club terminal in north Gotham. The terminal requires Flash to activate. Required for some red/gold bricks and minikits (the only character who can deconstruct black Lego bricks).
    Joker-Found by the Ace Chemicals terminal in central Gotham. Like Lex, you need Flash for this terminal, and also like Lex he's needed for a few collectibles (the Joker boxes).
    Harley Quinn-Found by the Gotham Funland Entrance terminal in north Gotham. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement. She can stand in for some of Robin's Acrobat Suit abilities, though she can't use ball controls.
    Riddler-Found by the Wayne Tower terminal in south Gotham. Needed for a few collectibles (Riddler boxes).
    Two-Face-Found by the City Hall terminal in south Gotham.

    Third row:
    Penguin-Found by the Gotham Zoo terminal in central Gotham. His exploding penguin goons can stand in for Batman's power suit explosives, though only for targets on the ground.
    Poison Ivy-Found by the Botanical Gardens terminal in north Gotham. You'll need Robin or Aquaman to clean up the goo covering the gate, making her inaccessible for about half of the story. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Catwoman-Found by the Police Station terminal in south Gotham. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Bane-Found by the Gotham Beach terminal in central Gotham.
    Killer Croc-Found by the Waterworks terminal in central Gotham. Like Ivy, there's some goo to clean up, so he won't be accessible during the parts of the story where you're controlling Bats and Superman.
    Mr. Freeze-Found by the Gotham Observatory terminal, on the far south island. His terminal requires Superman to activate. Can stand in for Robin's Ice Suit.
    Scarecrow-Found by the Amusement Mile terminal in north Gotham.
    Captain Boomerang-Found by the Arkham Asylum terminal in north Gotham. This is right next to you when you complete the Asylum levels in story (3 and 4), which is right when the terminals are activated, so likely he'll be the first boss you trigger on the map.
    Sinestro-By the Metro Station terminal in central Gotham. Beating him with Green Lantern gets you another achievement.
    Mad Hatter-Found at the Harbourside Theater in central Gotham.

    Fourth row:
    Killer Moth-Found at the Power Plant terminal in central Gotham.
    Man-Bat-Found at the Gotham Cathedral terminal in south Gotham. Like Black Canary he can stand in for the sonic gun on the Bat Suit.
    Clayface-Found at the Gotham Bank terminal in south Gotham.
    Hush-Found at the Gotham Hospital terminal in south Gotham.
    Ra's Al Ghul-Found at the Metro station terminal in north Gotham.
    General Zod-Found by the Metro Station terminal in south Gotham. Beating him with Superman nets you an achievement, but he can only be damaged by another Kryptonian anyway.
    Brainiac-Found by the Gotham Park terminal in central Gotham.
    Bruce Wayne-In the gold brick gate atop Wayne Tower.
    Dick Grayson-In the gold brick gate atop Harbourside Theatre.
    Clark Kent-In the gold brick gate north of City Hall. Needs 100 bricks to assemble.

    Bottom row:
    Alfred-In the gold brick gate at Wayne Manor.
    Commissioner Gordon-In the gold brick gate at the Police Station.
    Lois Lane-In a gold brick gate. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Vicki Vale-In a gold brick gate. Necessary for the Girl Power achievement.
    Policeman-In the gold brick gate at the Arkham Asylum parking lot.
    Clown Goon-Will attack you just about everywhere in the city.
    Mime Goon-Same as above. If you really need one, try outside the theatre.
    Riddler Goon-User x1001x Puppys found some at the power plant in the eastern part of Central Gotham.
    Two-Face Goon-All over, but try Arkham Asylum.
    LexBot-Appears in a few places, but guaranteed to show up on top of Wayne Tower. Clobber one of these guys as Brainiac for an achievement.

    x1001x PuppysStill gave you +1, but I spent over 30 minutes looking for a riddler goon, they may be more rare than your guide led on. I found them in the power station in eastern Central Gotham. may be worth adding to your solution

    HelloAllisonAlright, thanks. Added the note on the Riddler goons and fleshed out the gold brick gate overview a bit.

    TEAM BUILDING

    Let me start by saying that this was one of the last achievements I got in the game. It requires you to activate all remote links, battle/defeat/purchase all villains found by said remote links, collect all gold blocks (in itself, this requires you to complete all 15 levels in story, collect all mini-kits, superhero every level and rescue all citizens), locate/build all gold doors and purchase all characters from said gold doors.
    Total cost for this achievement is 250 gold bricks and about 7,225,000 studs.
    Characters are listed by row from left to right. I have included custom characters to help you place them on your character menu to find who you are missing.
    CHARACTERS NAME-UNLOCK METHOD-LOCATION-COST-OTHER ACHIEVEMENTS
    Custom characters are available as soon as free play is available. Story unlocks require you to complete the stated level to get the characters. Remote links are noted in free roam as blue beams of light. Many of them require Heat Vision to burn the lock off and three of them require The Flash to rebuild them. Upon locating the remote link, you must activate it, it will show you where the villain is, you must locate and defeat them to purchase them. Gold doors are located all over free roam and can be marked on your map. They require collecting set amounts of gold bricks to build, after which a character pops out and you may purchase them for studs. Free roam unlocks mean that you find the character in mobs that attack you. These mobs randomly spawn throughout the map, but I have listed the locations where I found them myself. You have to defeat a certain number of the enemy before one will surrender and allow you to purchase them.
    Any questions, please contact me.
