The Zeros

The Story:

Once they were nothing. Z-List heroes, at best. Formed on the eve of a great crisis, The Zeros protected Gotham City, the time-stream, and reality itself.

Now, they perform the deeds that must be done, that no other hero are wont to touch. Deeds that would dirty the hands of greater heroes. Deeds that garner no recognition or praise, and others that bring only scorn. That’s fine though, for they are Zeros.
