Information needed

On August 6, 2018, Nightwing became the leader of a new team consisting of himself, Superboy, Tigress, Black Lightning, Geo-Force, Forager and Halo. After a three month training period, the junior members graduated into the Team.[1] Three months later, Black Lightning left as well, effectively disbanding the team.[2]

History

July 2018

Originally, Nightwing recruited Tigress, Superboy, and Black Lightning for a single mission to Markovia. He had hoped to shut down the Bedlam Syndicate, a meta-human trafficking ring, in one night, and afterward go their separate ways; however, the untimely murders of King Viktor Markov and Queen Ilona DeLamb-Markov threw the country into turmoil, along with his planned op.[3]

A dubious victory

Nightwing's team surveys the fallout of their dubious victory in Markovia.

The series of events that ensued, including Prince Brion's crusade against his uncle, Superboy being captured by Count Vertigo, and Tigress discovering Halo,[4] culminated in a spotty victory at best.[5] Although the Bedlam Syndicate fell, Vertigo still escaped with the meta-teens and Prince Brion had been banished from his kingdom. Nightwing, in denial of his failures, attempted to absolve himself of the fallout by pushing Brion, Halo, and Dr. Helga Jace onto his friends. Eventually, he owned up to his mistakes and vowed to make things right.[6]

August 2018

Back in Happy Harbor, over the following few days, Dick and his friends deliberated over what do with the strays.[7][8] To pass the time, they tried helping them learn to control their newfound abilities; however, this distraction did not last long. Halo struggled with her powers and Brion, frustrated at having to languish in America, threatened to strike out on his own. To keep the group together, Dick promised him that they would find his sister, which persuaded him to stay.[7]

The group was soon expanded with Forager's arrival from New Genesis. He instantly got along with Halo and Brion and the three decided to go to Infinity Island in search of Brion's sister. The ensuing mission was a disaster and they were taken captive by the League of Shadows, forcing Nightwing, Tigress, Superboy, Miss Martian, and Black Lightning to rescue them. On the way home, Nightwing scolded them for their reckless actions but overall was impressed by their commitment. The trio elected to stay together instead of joining the Team, and with no other options, Nightwing finally took charge of this eager new group of heroes.[8]
