The new Freedom League members are settling in at Freedom Hall, when they are visited by Special Inspector Jane St. Claire, the Freedom League’s liaison with the Freedom City Police Department. She is upset that they have not yet contacted her or given the rundown on what happened to the rest of the League and how they gained membership.

But before she can chew the heroes out too much, news arrives that there’s been an attack on the Freedom City Aquarium by strange soldiers in greek styled armor and some sort of amphibious tank. The Freedom League defeats these attackers, but not before they release a giant octopus and a whale from the aquarium. The attackers loudly proclaim that they were sent to try to reclaim the Kingdom of Freedom back for its rightful ruler, King Poseidon of Atlantis. They claim Atlantis’s previous king Theseus once ruled here until he lost his throne. Deathstroke sent one of the soldiers back with a threatening message that the Freedom League would not stand for any more attacks by Atlantis.

Puzzled by this attack, the heroes decided to talk to their friend Doctor Atom about Atlantis. This lead to the realization that there was an Atlantean student at the Claremont Academy, a private school in the Bayview neighborhood. Predictably, the heroes soon learned that there was another attack by the Atlanteans, this time at Claremont Academy.

Rushing to Claremont, the heroes met Headmaster Summers and some of his students, a group of super-powered teens known as the Next-Gen. Mr. Summers was trying to convince one student, Princess Thetis of Atlantis, to let them evacuate her to safety, but she was stubbornly insisting on staying with her team. Before anything more could be done, the Atlantean attacks burst into the office. A clever attempt by Vortex to teleport Thetis to Eldrich’s house failed when an attacker followed her, and she stubborn burst back through the portal again.

But soon all the attackers had been defeated. They further clarified their plans to kidnap Thetis who they believed to be an imposter pretended to the throne, and recover the Crown of Triton, an Atlantean artifact King Theseus (aka Sea King) left in the Freedom League’s care. They also insisted Theseus was dead, which further angered Thetis.

The Freedom League decided to leave Thetis and the rest of the Next-Gen (most of who were injured or inexperienced) with Doctor Atom and Eldrich while they followed a GPS signal to the source of the attack.

With the help of Adrian Eldrich, the heroes are of on an interstellar trip to track down the missing Freedom League, meeting The Star Knights and tracking the League to a small planet where they were helping defend a planet from invasion of The Grue Unity. The shapeshifting aliens had temporarily stripped the league of their powers and only with the help of our heroes could the League succeed at defeating them and their Koorn allies’ robotic war machines

They also confronted the alien leader who has made bio-robots of all the freedom league members he had encountered. The alien was shot by Deathstroke while trying to escape.

After the fight, a blue monkey showed up inviting the heroes to meet with Doctor Atom, grandfather of the famed Atom Family.

The Freedom League Attacks

The Freedom League has been missing from Earth for months now. This is not totally unprecedented, the Freedom League has had extended extraplanatory or extraplanar adventures before, but this has been longer than normal.

Freedom City is thus surprised when the League reappears in the city, apparently breaking in to a research facility of Wendell And Shields. Captain Thunder, Lady Liberty and Johnny Rocket have taken hostages, wounded security guards and are furiously searching the building.

While the police keep people away and wait for heavy firepower support, four new heroes appear on the scene. Deathstroke and Vortex take shots at Captain Thunder who sees uncharacteristically unconcerned about collateral damage and injuring innocent citizens. Raptor sneaks in to the building and confronts Lady Liberty who was watching the hostages. And Speed Demon faces off against rival speedster Johnny Rocket.

Raptor’s hidden strikes quickly take down Lady Liberty, despite an attempt to help by Lady Liberty. But the Freedom League sees where the battle is turning and decide to retreat. Captain Thunder flies off, and Vortex is unable to catch up to him, while Johnny Rocket runs directly back to Freedom Hall. Speed Demon is just as fast as Johnny, but does not react in time to reach the Hall before the doors close and lock.

What has happened to the Freedom League? Why are they acting so strange. What will these new heroes find inside Freedom Hall? Tune in next week!
