When the Man of Steel was on a nonstop crusade to save the world, a team of dedicated young heroes rose to help protect the streets of Metropolis: the Supermen of America.

Their skills sharpened by intensive training, the teenaged Supermen think they're ready for anything. But they're about to face challenges greater than anything they've encountered so far: first, learning to deal with an abrasive, tough-as-nails new member named Maximum; and second, confronting a problem that starts small in the alleys of Metropolis's Suicide Slum, but rapidly grows to proportions that may be more than they can handle! With Superman nowhere to be found, will the Supermen be able to keep Metropolis in one piece?

here exists a barrier between two worlds...an unseen wall that separates two universes so blissfully unaware of one another. Now that barrier has been breached, and two titanic evils have joined together on a course which could spell disaster for existence as we know it. Mistress Crescendo and Baron Zemo have joined forces to resurrect the most powerful object created by man...the Cosmic Cube! It can convert thoughts into physical reality. Scattered chunks of the Cosmic Cube have lain beneath the depths of the ocean, its exact location unknown to all. But thanks to Mistress Crescendo, its location has been divined. Now there exists but one task--to retrieve these pieces of the Cube and reassemble them for both villains' uses. To that end, Baron Zemo has reassembled the Masters of Evil, a motley assembly of the most vile villains imaginable. He has also aligned himself with Arnim Zola, using the bio-geneticist's newly constructed living Isle of Exiles as his mobile base of operations. Can even the combined might of Iron Man and the Valiant universe's most technologically advanced weapon of destruction, X-O Manowar, stop the single biggest threat to both universes?

The character's next chronological appearance is in Avengers Unplugged #5 and then Warlock. He would then go on to star in Avengers Forever which revamped the character and led to another more successful solo series being launched in 2000. Although most of the plot threads were never addressed, let alone resolved, there is some small amount of resolution to be found in Captain Marvel #14 which was a fill-in issue written by this series' writer Fabian Nicieza.
