The place and circumstances of the Super Young Team's formation are unknown; presumably, they were motivated at least in part by a desire for fame and adventure.
Seeing their powers as mainly cosmetic, the team never got involved in fights. They spent a lot of time lounging in the metahuman
clubs of Tokyo
; to the elder Japanese superheroes, the team were prime examples of younger generation's trivialization of the calling. While they'd done a few minor good deeds, Most Excellent Superbat
was waiting for something that would make their name and establish their reputation.
When renowned sumo wrestler Sonny Sumo
showed up in a club, the team sought his autograph, but were rebuffed. Shilo Norman
, the escape artist Mister Miracle, also sought out Sonny at the club, hoping to get Sonny's help in fighting Darkseid
's forces in the upcoming Final Crisis
. The team overheard Shilo's request.
A few days later, when Sonny Sumo and Mister Miracle were attacked by a squad of Darkseid's Justifiers
at the airport, the Super Young Team helped the duo escape in their Wonder Wagon. Shilo's Mother Box
opened a Boom Tube
, transporting the Wonder Wagon and it's passengers across time and space. During their journey, Shilo took the opportunity to teach the team a symbol that would shield them from Anti-Life
They arrived at Checkmate
headquarters in Switzerland
one month later, as the Final Crisis
reached its endgame and New Earth's reality was fracturing under the weight of Darkseid's presence.NOTE:
The Super Young Team has a vehicle called the Wonder Wagon, which is a car capable of powered flight, similar to the Newsboy Legion
's Whiz Wagon
