    Outburst gathered together young metahumans after the shooting death of singer Junior K-D from the boy band Crossfire. Outburst and his family had been saved from death at Doomsday's hands by Superman. The young naive meta was willing to accept Lex Luthor's funding for a team of superheroes to protect Metropolis in Superman's absence. Although Luthor volunteered money, Outburst was tasked with recruiting the members He first recruited his girlfriend White Lotus, a young meta trained by the Warlords of Okaara, then he gathered Brahma, Loser, Pyrogen, and Psilencer. They were salaried heroes but they were determined to protect the city from villains emboldened by news of Superman's apparent death. They refurbish buildings across the city and turn them into community centers. The main building Outreach 1 serves as the team's headquarters. After Psilencer's untimely death by a gang member, Outbrust and his inexperienced teammates are deeply shaken and reconsider their vocation. It was around this time that the team met and recruited Maximum, the angry protector of Suicide Slums, a chronically poor section of Metropolis. As a former athlete, Maximum would remained quadripelegic without special implants provided by Lexcorp.  

    A disgruntled Lexcorp employee discovers that S.T.A.R. Labs had hidden a capsule inside a special holding chamber called Lockdown 6 in the waters near Metropolis. Luthor successfully deploys Pryogen to retrieve the capsule from Lockdown 6, but he encounters the villainous group Deep Six and is rebuffed. Darkseid, lord of Apokolips, also wanted the contents of Lockdown 6 and had sent the Deep Six to retrieve them. In the Vega system, the Warlords of Okaara sense the danger presented, and take preventative measures. The Okaarans overpowered Earth's defensive forces and White Lotus hurries to negotiate a peace settlement before they 'cleanse' the planet. To save Earth from worse attacks, while White Lotus was negotiating with the Okaarans, the chamber was opened ad the Unimaginable was unleashed. The Unimagniable's energy form possesses Maximum and he temporarily gains immense power. His parents eventually convinced him to relinquish the power, which he disperses safely. In exchange for the Superman's slience about his involvement with the Unimaginable fiasco, Lexcorp cuts its ties withe the Supermen of America charities. Lex Luthor signs all property deepd over to the organization, including Outreach 1.
