Also known as the Primal Force, the short-lived supergroup the Leymen came into being following the time crisis of Zero Hour. The order of the Leymen have defended Earth for over 2,000 years against evil supernatural forces. Armed with ley pendulums that augmented their natural powers in time of great stress, the new Leymen moved against villains such as Cataclysm, Satanus and the sinister cult called August. Primal force disbanded following a confrontation with Cataclysm in New York's Central Park, though its members stand ready. Jack O'Lantern III in particular remembers a prophecy that foretold he would one day lead the team.
