Throughout Earth-79's long and storied history, there have always been times where the fate of the world itself rested in the hands of singular individuals; teams of unique men and women of remarkable skill and ability. In the mid 1930s, such a time has come again. Famed adventurer and scientist Clark Savage Jr. has stumbled across an ancient brotherhood of evil seeking the means to subjugate the world. Quickly as he could, Clark sought out a group of adventurers like himself, and so the newest incarnation of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was born.

The Phantom: It all began a long time ago, when a merchant ship was attacked by pirates of the Singh Brotherhood, and a young boy saw his father murdered by the pirate captain, Kabai Singh. He jumped overboard and was washed ashore on the mysterious jungle island of Bengalla. At first, it seemed like a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire, but the Tuganda tribesmen meant the boy no harm. They scooped him up and carried him to their village, where, in an ancient ceremony of fire and drums, the Tuganda shaman presented the boy with a ring of great significance. Discovering the body of his father's murderer, the boy swore on the pirate's skull to fight piracy, evil and corruption in all their forms. So was born the legend of the Man Who Cannot Die, The Ghost Who Walks, the Phantom! Kit Walker is the 23rd in his family line to carry the title.

Mandrake: By all appearances a simple, albeit exceptionally talented, stage magician, the Man known as Mandrake is actually a powerful sorcerer who specializes in hypnosis and illusion based magic. Mandrake also possesses psychic and telekinetic powers, can turn invisible, shapeshift, and teleport periodically. His hat, cloak and wand, passed down from his father Theron, possess great magical properties which in time Mandrake learns how to use.

Lothar is the prince of a powerful federation of seven tribes, but travels with Mandrake in an attempt to learn more about the outside world before taking the throne. Described as the strongest man in the world, Lothar is invulnerable to any weapon forged by man, is impervious to heat, cold and possesses the stamina of a thousand men. He also cannot be harmed by magic directly (fire bolts, force bolts, spell incantations). He can lift an elephant by one hand easily. The costume Lothar wears was taken from a circus strongman who bragged he was stronger than any man alive.
Black Bat: Tony Quinn was a district attorney, a mark of righteousness, unable to be bribed or swayed by criminals into working for the corruption so rampant in city government. Finally, an angry criminal he convicted threw acid into his face, leaving him blinded and badly scarred. Quinn vowed revenge and began to train his other senses and his body. He later secretly received an eye transplant from a slain police officer. His new eyes allowed him not only to see, but he now had night vision due to his time spent as a blind man. Tony decided to use his new ability to become a costumed hero known as the Black Bat. In his costumed identity, Tony used a secret crime lab and drove a heavily modified car. Law officers were against his vigilante activities and tried to deduce his identity. One officer in particular, Captain McGrath, believed Tony and the Black Bat were one and the same and tried to prove it. Ironically, McGrath was Tony's brother-in-law.

Currently, she is living in Los Angela and working as a fashion model. She shares her penthouse apartment with her boyfriend Tristan, a werewolf, who occasionally aides her on her adventures alongside Pantha, a female were-panther.
