The All-Star Squadron
 Created at the request of the President, the All-Star Squadron was a group of super-heroes which operated from New York for the duration of World War II. Co-chaired by Hawkman and Liberty Belle, it counted as members almost all mystery men and women active during the period. The Squadron had links with other organisations: Plastic Man served as the group's liaison with the FBI, and Uncle Sam led a small group of heroes to become the Freedom Fighters, operating from Washington DC. There was also a 'junior' division, the Young All-Stars, created to give younger heroes a place to belong. Prevented from fighting on the main fronts of the war, the All-Stars concentrated on thwarting saboteurs, fifth-columnists and other enemies of the state on U.S. territory. The group lasted only as long as the war - when hostilities were ended, the individual heroes and teams drifted apart to fight crime and other evils in their own ways
 Alpha Flight is a team of superhuman Canadian operatives that originated in the private sector with an engineer named James MacDonald Hudson who had developed an exoskeleton to assist in geological exploration. When Hudson learned that the U.S. military had appropriated his invention, he destroyed the plans and made off with the helmet necessary to control the apparatus. Heather McNeil, then executive secretary to Hudson's immediate superior Jerome Jaxon, was shocked by the sudden turn of events and arranged a meeting between Hudson and the Canadian government. Hudson was able to plead his case and the government stepped in to resolve the situation. The Canadian prime minister subsequently invited Hudson to participate in the creation of Department H, a top-secret research and development agency within the country's Ministry of Defense. Hudson married Heather soon after

"Earth's Mightiest Heroes", the Avengers originally consisted of Ant-Man, Wasp, Thor, Iron Man, and the Hulk. Almost from inception, however, the roster has been fluid, with the Hulk departing and Captain America joining. The rotating roster has become a hallmark of the team, although one theme remains consistent: the Avengers fight the foes no single superhero can withstand - hence their famous cry of "Avengers Assemble!" To that end, the team has featured humans, robots, gods, aliens, supernatural beings and even former villains.
Despite the diverse nature of the team (which often resulted in squabbling), the Avengers have always managed to unite into a cohesive unit to combat extraordinary threats.
The original Bat-Girl is Betty Kane, niece of Kathy Kane — the vigilante known as Batwoman.
The best-known Batgirl was Barbara Gordon, daughter of Gotham City Police Commissioner James Gordon. However, in the one shot The Killing Joke, The Joker shot her in the spine, leaving her paraplegic. She later reinvented herself as Oracle, the premiere information broker of the superhero community and leader of the Birds of Prey team.
In 1998, the Batgirl mantle was taken up by Helena Bertinelli, who is better known as the Huntress. The stories of her as Batgirl are confined to the events of the long-running No Man's Land storyline. Batman stripped Helena of the mantle near the end of that story, leaving her to return to her Huntress identity.
In 1999, the martial arts prodigy Cassandra Cain became the third Batgirl, under the tutelage of Batman and Oracle, and was given Helena's Batgirl costume. She was the first Batgirl to star in an eponymous monthly series, which was canceled in 2006, ending with Cain relinquishing her title as Batgirl. However, following the events of Infinite Crisis, she has taken back her former mantle, now as a villain rather than a heroine.
In 2006, Charlotte Gage-Radcliffe temporarily took the name of Batgirl, but was forced to abandon the role by Oracle.
 Bruce Wayne was orphaned in his teens when criminals killed his parents. He inherited a huge fortune and, obsessed with fighting the evil-doers who plagued Gotham City, became Batman, the Caped Crusader. Under his mansion, Batman constructed the Batcave, an elaborate laboratory used to fight crime. His young ward, Dick Grayson, also orphaned due to evil-doers, became Robin, the Boy Wonder, under Batman/Wayne's tutelage. Together they defended the city against the sick minded criminals that populated the underworld. The only person who knew their identity was Alfred Pennywirth, Wayne's butler who raised Bruce after his parents were killed. In the Batlab, and at the Batcave, Batman and Robin were helped by the most advanced technology to fight their enemies. The Police Commissioner James W. Gordon could ask Batman for help either through the use of a searchlight, the Batsignal, or the Batphone, a direct line between the Police Station and Bruce Wayne's mansion. To defeat their enemies, Batman and Robin also used the Batmobile, their utility belts and other Batdevices.
 Most of the humor revolves around the inept characters stationed at Camp Swampy, inspired by Camp Crowder, where Walker had once been stationed while in the Army. Private Bailey is a lazy sort who usually naps and avoids work, and thus is often the subject of verbal and physical chastising from his commanding officer, Sergeant Snorkel.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
 The Buffy comic takes place in between episodes of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and continues after the television series has ended.

Captain Carrot And His Amazing Zoo Crew
 From DC Comics, The various members of the Zoo Crew lived on a parallel Earth that, during DC's pre-Crisis multiverse system, was named "Earth-C." Earth-C consisted of a world where various anthropomorphized talking animals existed; the series featured a lot of pun names for real-world aspects. For instance, the Zoo Crew operated out of "Follywood, Califurnia," a parody of Hollywood, California; similar puns included places with names such as "Gnu York", "Tallahatchee", "Cornada" and the "United Species of America".
 Alone and on the streets of a major metropolitan city, orphaned newsboy Billy Batson was led into an abandoned subway tunnel by a mysterious stranger. On an out-of-service rail-track an odd and driverless subway car stopped to pick-up Billy and his companion. Following a brief trip, Billy and the stranger disembarked the train and walked down a ancient hallway. On one side of the cavernous hall grotesque statues of the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man: Pride, Envy, Greed, Hatred, Selfishness, Laziness and Injustice loomed.
As mysteriously as he appeared the stranger vanishes. Sitting on a throne at the far-end of the hall is a wizened old man with long white hair and a full, almost floor-length white beard. At the old manâ€™s beckoning, Billy steps forward and stops in front of the throne.
The old man announces himself by proclaiming, "I am Shazam!," amid a peal of thunder and flash of lightning. As the smoke clears Billy notices the wall behind the wizard is inscribed with the names of six great elders which together form the name SHAZAM: Solomon- wisdom, Hercules - strength, Atlas - stamina, Zeus - power, Achilles - Courage, and Mercury - speed. Shazam relates to the young boy that he needs a new champion to battle evil and that he has chosen Billy. "Speak my name" shouts Shazam!
As Billy shouts the name of the ancient wizard, lightning drops from the ceiling of the chamber striking him, while at the same time a deafening peal of thunder echoes off the cavern walls. As the smoke clears, Billy discovers that he has been transformed into a man!
"Captain Marvel, I salute you," says Shazam! At that moment a slab of stone hanging above Shazamâ€™s head, held in place by a tattered thread, crashes down onto the old wizard crushing him. From the dust and rumble a ghostly image of Shazam appears and lights a nearby brazier.
At that, Captain Marvel sets off to track down the evil radio silencer plaguing his fair city â€” and at that Captain Marvel meets his arch-nemesis for the first time: Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana!

 Excalibur is a Marvel Comics superhero group, an offshoot of the X-Men, usually based in the United Kingdom.
The first Excalibur consisted of the British superhero Captain Britain, his lover Meggan, and several onetime members of the X-Men and related mutant teams. An eponymous series featuring the team lasted from 1988 until 1998. Originally, it was a wacky series involving cross-dimensional travel that incorporated as many elements of Captain Britain's mythos as it did the X-Men's. It became a more typical X-Book in later years.
Captain Britain reformed Excalibur to defend London in a series entitled New Excalibur, which debuted in 2005.
Between Excalibur's disbandment and reformation, a short-lived, ongoing series entitled Excalibur chronicled the efforts of X-Men founder Charles Xavier and his former nemesis Magneto to rebuild the mutant homeland of Genosha. Although written by Claremont with the same title, it had no connection to the superhero team.

Following the events of Infinite Crisis, Wally, his wife Linda, and their twins left Earth for an unknown dimension. Wally, his wife and twins were pulled back from the Speed Force by the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Johnny the Homicidal Maniac
 The main character Johnny - called Nny by his friends (or at least the voices in his head) - is a criminally insane young man. He even admits it. He hears voices coming from various objects in the abandoned shack he calls his house and he paints a wall in his living room with fresh blood to prevent "something" from coming through. He tortures people with many of the strange devices in his seemingly bottomless basement and terrifies the little boy next door. Yet while he hates most of humanity with a passion that borders on obession, he seems to hold just as much contempt for his own reactions to it. He hates blood (and all other bodily fluids) and leaves his house only under the most extreme of circumstances. He aknowledges that he is a slave (as it turns out, this is a more than apt description) and cannot break away from his cycle. He tries to kill himself and always something intervens - as time passes what little knowledge he possesses of himself and his motivations is torn away leaving him with nothing. He possesses a rudimentary form of kindness - especially towards the neighbor child, nicknamed Squee, whom he seems to feel an odd kinship toward. In one issue he rescued the boy from a child molestor, and while he subsequently tore the man into little bloody pieces in front of the poor kid, his intentions toward Squee were certainly not malignant. His offered advice on several occasions possesses some actual good sense, but his audience is not prepared to hear it from him at least. He also is capable of regret, especially upon choosing victims who are basically "good" in nature. None of this justifies his actions, of course. And in later issues, the matters of good and evil come to the fore. He dies in a most unsual manner and discovers his intended purpose - which is different from what he does, but still rather nasty - and is restored to life.
Justice League Task Force
 Justice League Task Force was a spinoff of Justice League Europe. Like JLE, this team carried a United Nations charter which sanctioned their activities.

Legion Of Superheroes
Although time travel stories in comic books are frequent, the series is different from most in that it actually takes place in the 31st century (stories published prior to 2000 were set in the 30th century). Legion of Super-Heroes stories contain more elements of fantasy and science fiction than most American comic books.The Legion is also known for its sizable roster, which includes several dozen minor and major characters. A common visual associated with the group is a tidal wave of colorful heroes utilizing the group's "flight rings."
The team was originally closely associated with the original Superboy and was first portrayed as a group of time travelers who frequently visited, or were visited by, the young Superman. It was several years before the Legion's origin and back story was fleshed out and the group's connection to Superboy was severed

Lucifer abandoned his lordship over Hell. While Lucifer had previously appeared in various stereotypical guises in earlier DC books, Gaiman's version was unique and premised on English poet and prose writer John Milton's Paradise Lost (at his earliest appearance in the Sandman he looked extremely similar to young David Bowie). In the Sandman series, Lucifer had ruled as lord of Hell for ten billion years. Over that time, he had manipulated the various demons of Hell against each other, provided a place for dead mortals to be tormented, and led the war against Heaven.
However, at some point during his rule, he had become bored with his existence. He became tired of the various stereotypes that mortals held of the devil, such as the idea that he purchased and traded for souls, which were largely untrue. He had become tired of his reign over Hell, and felt it an unfair punishment that he should have to rule there forever simply because he once rebelled. In the Sandman story Season of Mists, Lucifer expels all demons and damned souls from Hell before locking Hell's gates and handing over the key to Hell to Dream of the Endless, the title character of The Sandman series. Eventually, control of Hell was handed over to two Angels, Duma (the angel of silence) and Remiel ("set over those who rise"), while Lucifer simply retired to Earth, specifically to Perth, Western Australia.
The Man Called Nova

Having been mortally wounded in the battle that tore Xandar apart, Dey succeeds in tracking Zorr to Earth, but is unable to exact vengeance due to the extent of his injuries. At death's door, Dey has little choice but to transfer his power to an unsuspecting human on the planet below, praying that whomever he finds will take up his cause.
 Originally one planet, the origins of New Genesis and Apokolips can be traced to the deaths of the Old Gods, after which an indescribable burst of energy split the planet into two molten bodies. These bodies cooled and brought forth new life and new gods which developed into two worlds that exist as the antithesis of the other. Ruled by the compassionate Highfather, New Genesis is an eden of unspoiled forests, rivers, and mountains. High above it is the floating city of Supertown, where the New Gods reside. Despite this splendor, however, New Genesis is still shadowed by Apokolips, which serves as a constant reminder of Darkseid's ambition.
The New Mutants
 The New Mutants were teenaged students of the telepathic Professor X, much like the original X-Men, who debuted in 1963 and had since grown into adulthood.
Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
 S.H.I.E.L.D.'s introduction in the newly launched Strange Tales feature "Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D." occurred during a trend for action series about secret international intelligence agencies with catchy acronyms, such as television's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and James Bond's SPECTRE. Colonel Fury (initially the lead character of Marvel Comics' World War II series Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos) was reimagined as a slightly older character with an eyepatch (which he lacked in his wartime adventures) and appointed head of the organization. Some characters from the Sgt. Fury series reappeared as agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., most notably Timothy "Dum-Dum" Dugan, Fury's bowler hat-wearing aide-de-camp.

In its most recent formation, the group is led by Nightwing.
 Charlie Brown wins your heart with his losing ways. It always rains on his parade, his baseball game, and his life. He's an inveterate worrier who frets over trifles (but who's to say they're trifles?). Although he is concerned with the true meaning of life, his friends sometimes call him "blockhead." Other than his knack for putting himself down, there are few sharp edges of wit in his repertoire; usually he's the butt of the joke, not the joker. He can be spotted a mile away in his sweater with the zig zag trim, head down, hands in pocket, headed for Lucy's psychiatric booth. He is considerate, friendly and polite and we love him knowing that he'll never win a baseball game or the heart of the little red-haired girl, kick the football Lucy is holding or fly a kite successfully. His friends call him "wishy-washy," but his spirit will never give up in his quest to triumph over adversity
 Originally, the series featured a group of six kids whose parents routinely met every year for a charity event.

 World's Finest Comics was a comic book series published by DC Comics from 1941 to 1986. The series was initially titled World's Best Comics for its first issue; issue #2 (1941) switched to the more prominent name. Every issue featured DC's two leading superheroes, Superman and Batman. The series was initially a 96 page quarterly anthology, featuring various DC characters - always including Superman and Batman - in separate stories. When superheroes fell out of vogue in the 1950s, DC shortened the size of the publication to that of the rest of its output, leaving only enough space for one story; this led to Superman and Batman appearing in the same story together starting with World's Finest #71

 The team was formed by three teenage superheroes. Superboy (Kon-El), Robin (Tim Drake) and Impulse (Bart Allen) The team was first formed in a one-shot, part of the "Girlfrenzy" Fifth week event, called Young Justice: The Secret written by Todd Dezago, where they first encountered the mysterious superheroine Secret. They next appeared together in the Justice League miniseries, World Without Grown-Ups, also written by Dezago, in which a magical being moved all adults to an alternate world. This was when they first stumbled upon the abandoned Justice League Cave in Happy Harbor (formerly called "The Secret Sanctuary"). When the ongoing title began in September 1998, the three heroes had formed a clubhouse in the Cave. However, in the first issue they woke the robot superhero Red Tornado who continued to be a recurring character throughout the series' run, acting as something of a mentor. From issue 4 the group doubled in number with the addition of 3 teen superheroines: the second Wonder Girl, the Secret, and Arrowette. The complete Young Justice membership, including reservesThe series ended with #55, at which time the membership was Superboy, Robin, Impulse, Wonder Girl, the de-aged "Li'l Lobo" or known as Slo-Bo, Empress, Snapper Carr and the Ray as well as many reserves. In the followup miniseries Young Justice/Titans: Graduation Day, the group disbanded. Some members went on to form a new team of Teen Titans, with the help of veteran Titans Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy and Cyborg.
