Heroes of Freedom City
The Freedom League
The Freedom League is Freedom City premier superhero team and one of the worlds premier teams and has been for decades. The current team is technically the third incarnation of the Freedom League, and the largest by far of any of the previous teams.
The original Freedom League was founded after the Greek god Hades attempted to invade Freedom City with an army of the undead as a means of striking at Daedalus and making a play for domination of the world of the living. A group of heroes, including Daedalus, Centurion, the second Lady Liberty, Pseudo, and the second Bowman, banded together to stop Hades’ plans. They decided to remain together as a group, using a downtown mansion owned by Fletcher Beaumont (the first Bowman) as their headquarters. During the 1960s and ‘70s, they fought a variety of menaces, and became known as the world’s greatest heroes.
The League began to drift apart in the 1970s, with some members departing its ranks. Raven retired from superheroism due to injuries sustained fighting against Dr. Sin. Lady Liberty’s powers began to fade. Black Avenger quit after many disputes over the League’s focus. Scarab died saving the League from the Scions of Sobek. Daedalus, weary of the never ending battle, decided to leave Earth to explore the stars.
By the 1980s, the League’s ranks were diminished. Efforts were made to add new heroes to the team, but they were younger, and less experienced. They didn’t always mesh well with older heroes like the Centurion. The team’s performance suffered, and then League members Halogen and Tectonic died fighting the ruthless Katanarchists. In the face of growing public mistrust of superheroes, Centurion disbanded the Freedom League,
to prevent any further deaths on his conscience.
When Omega’s forces invaded Freedom City in 1990s, some former members of the Freedom League banded together with new heroes to help fight off the invasion. After Omega’s defeat and the death of the Centurion, these heroes decided to revive the Freedom League. They built Freedom Hall on the site of the old Beaumont Mansion in downtown Freedom City, and soon the Freedom League was renowned as the world’s greatest defenders of peace and justice.
