During World War II, a group of super-heroes came together and formed the Allies to fight the Nazis. With their combined might, they managed to give Hitler and Third Reich more than their fair share of headaches.
The Allies was created by Alan Moore as a homage to DC Comics' Justice Society and Justice League, so as to recapture the magic of the superhero team book. Like the Society and the League, the Allies had a long history dating from the Golden Age all the way up to the Modern Age of comics. As Alan Moore continued his re-invigoration of the superhero arch-types for Awesome Comics, the Allies were set to receive a new series written by Alan Moore with Rob Liefeld, staring Spellcaster, Diehard, Thor, Supreme, and Badrock, with the team led by Fighting American. Unfortunately, the series never saw the light of day when Awesome Comics closed its doors.
The premier Golden Age super team under the name of Allied Supermen of America, active from 1941 through 1949. Its members were Supreme, Professor Night, Glory, Mighty Man, Waxman, Die-Hard, Super-Patriot, Black Hand, Storybook Smith, Doc Rocket, Alley Cat, and Roy Roman, the Mer-Master. The original Allies fought the Nazis and villains like Magno, but they felt helpless in the face of postwar social pressures and the threat of the atom bomb.
The Allies were dedicated to preserving the spirit in which the foundation of United States of America is built. They were America's elite. They knew once the war ended, there would be no more need for the Allies.
They disbanded in 1950, although they reunited briefly to play a prank on Supreme in 1958. Many of their members joined the Allies in 1960.
The leading super-team of the Silver Age, the Allies was made up of some of the members of the now disbanded Allied Supermen of America. Its ranks included Supreme, Professor Night, Glory, Mighty Man, Die-Hard, Super-Patriot, Roy Roman, Spacehunter, and the Fisherman. The Allies formed in May 1960 to defend the Earth against Florax the Dominator. Their headquarters was a base on an asteroid, the Asteroid Amor. They had bizarre adventures against foes like Hulver Ramik, Dr. Clock, the Moth Empress, Basilisk, Atomo, and Prismalo the Painter. The Allies disbanded in 1970.
After the old group briefly got back together to aid Supreme on some recent adventures, Diehard suggested that they reform the Allies. Supreme, Glory, Professor Night, Diehard, Roman, and Spacehunter have reclaimed their old headquarters and are once again in action.
