taken to this future by tiger soldiers and Gorilla Grodd.

transports the rest of Justice Inc to Kei's
interdimensional HQ to help Nemesis and the
others. In a battle with a pair of engineered
Nemesis clones (one male and one female) the team
is pulled into a dimensional vortex.
- World of Darkness
- Helpless in the grip of the
dimensional vortex, Justice Inc
find themselves on a parallel
Earth. This world's Mindblade had
been turned into a vampire by
Nightflick during there first
encounter. Teamed with Looker
from the Outsiders the undead
Mindblade created a vampiric army
and conquered the planet. Justice
Inc allies themselves with this
world's resistance forces and
destroy the vampire Mindblade and
his army of the night.
- Crisis of Faith
- Pulled back into the dimensional
vortex, the team is next
deposited on an Earth where a
Puritanical government controls
the United States. Church and
State are bound together in a tyrannical regime. This world's
counterpart to Arclight had been
a rebel leader who was executed
for treason. Arclight is mistaken
as her counterpart and the team
helps the rebels overthrow the tyrannical government. The Father
Kelly of this world gives
Arclight an improved suit of
power armor and she changes her
name to ArcAngel.
- Eternal Kingdom
- The next jump in Justice Inc's
attempt to return home lands them
in a world where the Pharonic
empire never collapsed and the
Egyptians conquered the globe.
With the aid of their Egyptian
counterparts Justice Inc learns
that their dimensional hops are
not random but that they are
being guided by an unseen force.
- Elseworld Redux
- The team's next stop is the
parallel earth that resulted from
Tarantula and Quiksilver's time traveling several months earlier
(see Elseworld Saga). They see
first-hand the aftermath of the
massive battle between
superhumans that nearly engulfed
this world. On this planet, the
super-heroes have withdrawn,
having seen the devastation their
presence can cause they are
reluctant to involve themselves
in anything. Justice Inc points
out that the good the heroes can
do outweighs the risks their
presence entails. The lessons
learned should help them prevent
such a thing from occurring again
but must not stop them from using
their abilities to help.
- 1,000 Year Reich
- Justice Inc are again transported
to a parallel world, but this
time the team members have
replaced their counterparts in
this world rather than co-existing
with them. Separated, the heroes
must locate each other in a
nightmare world where Nazi
Germany won World War II. The
United States is a police state
under the control of a puppet
government controlled by Berlin
and the Nazi elite enjoy extended
lifespans thanks to a monstrous procedure that costs the lives of
thousands of young "donors."
Individually, the team members
locate the counterparts to many
of their world's greatest heroes:
rebel pilot Hal Jordan, Amazon
resistance fighter Diana, the
shape-shifting J'onn J'onzz,
metahuman concentration camp
prisoner Barry Allen, a
mysterious super-man who flies
refugees out of the U.S., and
legendary anti-Nazi terrorist
known only as the Bat-man. The
resistance cannot operate openly
under threat of nuclear
annihilation, but Justice Inc
persuades this world's heroes to
adopt the names they know them
under and form a Justice League
for the world. While these new
heroes free America from the
Nazis, Justice Inc heads to
Europe to destroy Hitler's
nuclear arsenal. There they also
discover an experimental
dimensional transporter. They destroy Hitler's missiles, and
the fuehrer along with them and
Justice Inc uses the transporter
to finally return to their own
- Ghost Planet
- This time the mysterious force
that has been propelling the team
through parallel dimensions
forces Justice Inc to arrive not
on Earth, but on an alien world.
An abandoned ghost planet that
Nemesis recognizes as his
homeworld. The mysterious force
that has been guiding the team is
revealed to be the spirit of the
previous Nemesis. She tells
Nemesis the true origin of their
world, and what became of it when
he left so many millennia ago. In
the end, the Fates offer Nemesis
new power and he becomes the host
for the Avatar of Justice.
Justice Inc are then finally sent
on there way home, in time for
the final confrontations of
- Battle of Armageddon.
- Justice Inc return to Earth in the midst
of the climax of the Revelations saga.
Nemesis retakes the leadership of his
people, and Justice Inc defeats the

follows much of Empire City is destroyed
and Tempest is killed, but the heroes are

leaves the team, as does Nemesis who reluctantly
heads off into space to help his people find a
- The team meets the Ebony
Banshee when Klarion the Witch Boy wreaks havoc in
- Forces from Apokalips invade Elemental's
homeworld. Darkseid reclaims the portion of his
soul that had possessed Elemental and he strips
Elemental of the X-element, robbing him of his
powers. Darkseid then lays waste to the planet.
Elemental and a handful of survivors from that
world are saved by the Guardians.
- In the culmination of his plan of vengeance, Vandal
Savage captures all of the members of Justice Inc, as
well as the Ebony Banshee, and exiles them to the far
side of the galaxy. He destroys Heroes Island and most of
the world believes Justice Inc to have been killed.
- With Justice Inc believed dead Torch,
Metalmorph, Amplifier, and Video form new a team based in
New York called Generation 2000, or Gen 2K for short.
- Space Odyssey
- Justice Inc are able to free themselves from
their prison, but are still trapped light years
from Earth. They begin their long trek home.
- At a spaceport, Ebony Banshee finds a fragment of
what he believes to be a powerful mystic artifact.
Telling the team that the artifact may have the
ability to get them home, the Banshee convinces
them to search out the remaining fragments.
- Felicia is mortally wounded by space pirates. To
save her, Nightflick turns her into a vampire.
They try to keep this fact from the rest of the
team for as long as possible.
- Magic Wars
- When they finally assemble the artifact, the team
find themselves on the planet known as Zerox, the
Sorceror's World. There Justice Inc find
themselves allied with a sorcerer named Wrynn. It
is all a trick when they learn that the artifact
actually frees the bound mystic energies of a
powerful sorcerer. Wrynn is transformed into the
sorceror Mordru. Mordru easily defeats Justice
Inc. He siphons the vampiric essence from
Nightflick and Felicia, restoring them to human
form, and uses it to empower his ally Vrykos.
- Sensing Mordru's release Auric
heads for the Sorceror's World.
- Also sensing the cosmic disturbance caused by
Mordru's release, Nemesis sends the newly-recruited
Azure Star to investigate.
- Guy Gardener and the Monster Hunters learn from
Lobo and Fate that Justice Inc are still alive
but stuck on the far side of the Milky Way. They
immediately begin planning a rescue mission.
- Mordru turns the Sorceror's World into his base
of operations and, allied with the Khunds, begins
the swift conquest of nearby star systems.
Meanwhile, Justice Inc and Auric go into hiding
on the surface and begin covertly searching for a
way to defeat Mordru.
- Azure Star reports back to Nemesis, who heads off
to join him when he learns that Justice Inc are
- Using a borrowed Darkstar cruiser a rescue squad
leaves Earth to find Justice Inc. The rescue
squad consists of Guy Gardner, Buck Wargo, Rita
Muldoon, Desmond Farr, Arcangel, and Lobo. En
route they are joined by Nemesis and Azure Star.

defeat Mordru, who is imprisoned by the Conclave
(a group of magicians). Before he was defeated,
though, Mordru had banished the Ebony Banshee to
- Justice Inc return to Earth. They are accompanied by
Nemesis and Azure Star, and by Auric, who adopts the hero
name Goldstar while on Earth.
- Four Weddings and a Funeral
- Desmond and Felicia are married at Warriors. The
service is performed by Father Kelly.
- Arcangel and Paladin's wedding is interrupted by
Death Spider, who kidnaps Father Kelly and forces
him to perform the ceremony for his wedding to
Aranaea. Arcangel, Paladin, and Justice Inc
battle Death Spider and his newly formed "Enforcers
of Injustice". Nightflick is mortally
wounded but he is revived by Felicia, who finds a
way to jump start his dormant vampiric powers.
Arcangel apparently kills Death Spider, but the
body is revealed to be a second generation, non-powered
clone of Will Talbot (Quiksilver). This leads to
speculation that Death Spider may not be Jonathan
Law from a future timeline, but in fact a clone
of Will Talbot from the future.
- Nemesis and Cat's wedding is stopped when the
Fates exile Nemesis to Limbo as punishment for
his inaction during the battle with Death Spider.
- Justice Inc travel to Hell to rescue the Ebony Banshee.
The Banshee is grateful, but does not stay with the team,
instead he heads off to uncover the truth behind his
purpose and powers.
- Sarge Steel recruits Justice Inc into government service
with the promise of helping the team members restore
their civilian identities, which were declared missing
presumed dead during their 3-month exile in space. The
deal is refused when Mindblade enlists Metalmorph's help
in re-establishing the team members' identities.
- During his absence, Mindblade's financial resources had
continued to increase, the net result being that he is
now a multi-millionaire. No longer bothering to conceal
his civilian identity, Mindblade purchases a building in
midtown Manhattan, has it demolished, and arranges for
the rapid construction of a 40-story modern skyscraper,
setting aside the top 10 levels as a new headquarters and
residence for Justice Inc.
- A newly re-organized and re-equipped H.I.V.E. kidnap
Streaky in an attempt to reverse engineer the mutagen
that created her and Cat. Justice Inc rescue Streaky but

disrupted. Auric's current host, the alien Rogatta, is
killed but the Auric energies survive by finding a new
host, a reporter from New York.
- Cat teams up with Frostbite
from the Guardians and they rescue Nightflick and Dr.
Kimiyo Hoshi (Dr. Light II) from a H.I.V.E. base in Japan.
- When Justice Inc arrives in Japan to help Night Flick,
they learn of a mysterious entity attacking Kei Manga
Corps resources. Investigating, they find an entity
claiming to be the vengeful revenant of Arasaka Konei
on a mission to destroy Kei. In the resulting battle,
Kei's dimensional generator is destroyed, sending some of
their pocket universes spiralling into other dimensional
planes while merging others into the mainstream universe. What
effect this has had on the timeline has yet to be
completely determined. His mission of vengeance complete,
the revenant disappears.
- Zodiak successfully tracks Death Spider to his
headquarters in the Rocky Mountains. Zodiak summons Renegade, Solitaire, Mindblade,
Arcangel, and Cat and together with Metalmorph, Torch,
and Zodiak's sometime ally Ghost they attack Death Spider
and the "Anti-Enforcers". The villains are
defeated and Death Spider is killed. He manages to
survive with the assistance of his new ally OMEGA, who
transfers Death Spider's consciousness into a computer
file and uploads him to the 'Net.
- The SKULL organization resurfaces in New York, secretly
backed by H.I.V.E.. They attempt to take over the New
York underworld by starting an arms race between the mob
families that they hope to escalate into open warfare.
SKULL would then move in and pick up the pieces. The plan
is thwarted by Justice Inc when Mindblade successfully
negotiates a truce between the families and reveals
- H.I.V.E., using several kidnapped scientist, successfully
reverse engineers the mutagen that hyper-evolved Cat's
ancestors. The substance turns out to be cortexin, the
mutagen created by Dr. Michael Grant for the top secret
Project: Moreau in the late 1940's. H.I.V.E. begins the
creation of an army of humanoid animal slaves in their
hidden lab in South America.
- In an effort to isolate and destroy Justice Inc, H.I.V.E.
sends metahuman agents working for SKULL to attack the
team's allies. Warriors is destroyed, but the villains
are defeated and Justice Inc decide to put an end to H.I.V.E.'s
- Cat, Torch, and Metalmorph are able to free the hyper-evolved
animal slaves from the H.I.V.E. base in South America.
The rest of Justice Inc defeat H.I.V.E.'s methuman forces.
Goldstar is again nearly destroyed by H.I.V.E., but this
time the host body is saved by ex-Justice Inc'er
Elemental who uses his connection to the Source to draw
the Auric power into himself.
- In the aftermath of H.I.V.E.'s defeat, Cat leaves the
team choosing instead to assume leadership of the newly
freed humanimals. With Desmond Farr's help, she takes
them to the hidden valley of the Tiger-men and they make
it their new home. With Cat gone, Nightflick also chooses
to leave the team. To fill the gap left by the departing
members Elemental and Metalmorph rejoin, as does Azure
Star, and Torch is invited to join as well.
- A few months later, the team's lineup again went through
a major change. Nicholas Coal, the former host of the
Goldstar powers, developed metahuman powers of his own
and reluctantly began accompanying Justice Inc on
missions, eventually taking the name Power Star. A vengeful
H.I.V.E. struck back against Cat and her people and
Justice Inc., along with Paladin, came to help. In the
battle that followed H.I.V.E.'s submersible base was
destroyed, many of its key members were taken into
custody, and the H.I.V.E. Queen was forced to flee by
Adeline Wilson who takes over the organization to use as
a tool against all super-heroes. The Queen later forms a
new organization, Tarot, with
those H.I.V.E. members who remained loyal to her. In the
aftermath, the surviving member's of Cat's people were
relocated to the remote Pacific island that was the
location of Project: Moreau (the US Government project
that H.I.V.E. based its own experiments on). For
political reasons Cat was not able to join her people on
the island so she has returned to New York and rejoined
- When the Weaponers of Qward allied with Entropy in an
attempt to create a new Anti-monitor the battle to stop
them was fought on two fronts. While Metalmorph,
Elemental, and Azure Star accompanied the new Enforcers of Justice
and the Sovereign Seven went into the anti-matter
universe the remaining members of the team joined with
Paladin to battle Entropy and a group of Qwardians armed
with Sinestro-style power rings at the former site of
Coast City. While both groups were victorious, the victory
came with a price. Azure Star and the Enforcer named Mercy were killed and Elemental
chose to join a group of starfaring aliens to explore the
galaxy. Shortly after this adventure Torch left the team
to join the newly re-formed Guardians.
- Vampire Wars: General Glory joins and Night Flick rejoins the team to help stop
an evil vampire from leading the vampires of the world into a war against
- Elemental comes to Earth to enlist Justice Inc.'s aid in combating the
world destroyer Mageddon. While unable to stop it the team does slow its
progress, giving the Justice League time to prepare. After being captured
by Mageddon, Superman is later escapes with the aid of Batman, Martian
Manhunter, and Mindblade and destroys the Warbringer.
