The Flag Five was a superhero team that once operated in The City.
History[edit | edit source]
Fifteen years ago The Terror used weaponized syphilis to destroy their eyes effectively rendering them blind. Their ship crashed onto the father of a young Arthur Everest after which four of them were killed by The Terror's henchmen. Straight Shooter was spared, but his hands were crushed. Christian Soldier's pet and team mascot Onward (who renamed himself Midnight) had a turbulent relationship with Straight Shooter both would reflect on years later, though the canine companion suffered from heartworms and related diseases for a while and happened to be at the local veterinarian at the time of his comrades' end.
Before this The Terror's sidekick Miss Lint manipulated Straight Shooter (Uncle Samson's sidekick and future AEGIS agent-turned-vigilante Overkill) into giving her the access codes necessary to breach the Flag Five's HQ and presumably put The Terror's plan into motion, though not before metaphorically dumping him and breaking his heart.
However, their deaths and losses would be avenged by fellow superhero Superian when he seemingly killed The Terror a year later and again when he finally helped subdue the villainous madman once and for all on the latest memorial of the Flag Five's last stand and demise.
