The team known as Danger Girl is actually a top secret spy organization. It was formed by a former MI-6 agent known as Deuce in response to reports that a “Fourth Reich” had been formed and was nearly ready to unleash its forces upon the world. His first recruits were Sydney Savage, Natalia Kassle and Silicon Valerie.
The team first appeared in Danger Girl #0 in 1997. The team introduced its main characters in the same issue. It was created by J. Scott Campbell and Andy Hartnell. Though not exactly in the same genre and as a late entry, the characters represented a form of bad girl art. Although a relatively popular team, they nonetheless experienced the common problems of being an independent title. The team has thus passed from one company to another and presently is operated by IDW.
The team’s core was originally established as the three characters that were originally introduced plus Abbey Chase, the initial cause and later a key member of the team’s first mission. Others would come to work with the team over time, but the original team was not much modified. As Natalia is eventually revealed as a traitor she is no longer a member of the team. Sonya Savage (Sydney's sister) joins during the events of Revolver.
