Origin

Outsiders I

When the Western European country of Markovia was invaded by the despotic Nazi, Baron Bedlam, the nation was plunged into turmoil. Among the foreign nationals trapped within the country at the time of the invasion was Wayne Enterprises executive Lucius Fox.


Wayne Enterprises owner Bruce Wayne under the disguise of Batman, along with a team consisting of Black Lightning, Halo, Katana and Metamorpho infiltrated the besieged nation. Allied with the nation's crown prince, Prince Brion Markov (Geo-Force), who had been empowered with superhuman abilities by his government scientists to overcome the threat of Baron Bedlam.


After defeating Baron Bedlam the group organized as a team under the leadership of Batman, until a philosophical rift caused Batman to leave the team, which relocated from Gotham City to an ocean base off the coast of Santa Monica, California. With the patronage of the Markovian government the team continued for a number of years under the codename of the Outsiders.


Outsiders II

After the deaths of the Amazon avatar Troia and the telepathic Lilith, the team known as the Titans was disbanded. Their deaths were not only the end of a team, but the dissolution of a group that considered one another family.


Months later, former Titan, Roy Harper (Arsenal III) began rebuilding a new team with no former allegiances, believing that they would work better without the ties of friendship. His recruits included the super-strong Thunder and Grace, the master of chemicals Metamorpho, the reprogrammed android villain Indigo and former Titans teammate Nightwing to continue their quest to protect humankind as the Outsiders.
