The Paper Age
Defenders of Justice
In 1938, aliens invaded Grovers Mill, New Jersey. As civilian and law enforcement casualties rose, heroes from all over the area came together to stop the menace. Afterwards, they agreed to form a team to fight other crises too large for them individually. They called themselves the “Defender of Justice”, or the “DoJ” for short.
When the United States joined the war, the team was divided. Because of the power nullifier spell protecting Axis nations, super powered heroes couldn’t fight overseas. It was decided that the metahumans would stay stateside and protect the US from attacks as well as ferreting out spies, while a new team – the Freedom Battalion – would use all non-powered heroes on strike and rescue missions.
