A criminal named Mr. Monday and his Steel Army have been attacking a series of precincts in Washington, DC, causing the deaths of many people. Mr. Monday expresses how he will not stop until he sees the utter destruction of Washington, DC. The president of the United States of America is Brian O'Brien, a former superhero known as the Clock. With the attacks from Mr. Monday occurring, Brian O'Brien gets a visit from another superhero named Graveyard. Together they decide that there should be a superhero team that answers to a responsible source. Three weeks later, President O'Brien calls upon a former superhero known as Night Mask, Philip Reinhart, to meet with him. At the meeting, the President informs Philip Reinhart that the government is starting a superhero team to battle menaces like Mr. Monday and he wants Mr. Reinhart to be the teams coordinator and Mr. Reinhart agrees. The President then informs Mr. Reinhart that he has already contacted some members for the team and they are on a training mission at the moment. Those members, including Arc, Air Man, Graveyard and Man of War, visit a dangerous neighborhood and stop a drug deal from occurring. After the mission, the group meets Mr. Reinhart and is surprised to find a new member join so soon, Mr. Reinhart's own son. He takes on the mantle of Night Mask and has been personally approved by the President, much to Mr. Reinhart's chagrin. However, he can only allow his son to join the team and he becomes their newest member. Meanwhile, Graveyard visits the President and they ponder the idea of inviting the Ferret to join the team.
