In the late 1940s and continuing on through the 1950s, a misguided Fighting Yank
captured his wartime allies and trapped them inside a mystical urn. With the superheroes all gone, and nobody to watch out for the common good, a group of supervillains and major corporate players got together and formed an alliance in order to ensure that the future continued on in their favor. And thus began the Supremacy. In the present day, the Supremacy's hand has gotten into nearly every source of profit, be it oil, war, or crime.
