The Justice League, the Avengers, X-Men, Defenders and Teen Titans are all superhero groups who hog the spotlight, but there are lots of inexperienced, incidental and downright motley crews out there who need love too!
Spidey and Sandman on the same team? Amazing but yes, Spider-Man teamed up with five of his former enemies to become the Outlaws, a team formed by Silver Sable to pose as criminals and take down the Maggia crime syndicate.
The Outlaws formed out of necessity, but the group pictured below was formed just to make the rich even richer and to stroke Booster Gold's ego.
They were known as the Conglomerate, a corporate-sponsored team created to give the Justice League International a run for their money, which Booster had left because he felt he was treated as a joke.
But the joke was on Booster after all, because the Conglomerate's sponsors just wanted to exploit superheroes for profit, so Booster had to go slinking back to the JLI after all.
And in case you thought I forgot about the team at the top of the post here they are- the Inferior Five!
The Inferior Five began as a parody group, the inept offspring of the mighty Freedom Brigade, but readers liked them so much the 5 got their own title, which ran for a mere twelve issues.
But here's the fun part about the Inferior Five- they have to fight crime as a team because they're too inept to do any good on their own!
