This is a listing of some of the teams of heroes and villains who operate in the Free Universe.
The Deadly Dozen is a society of the top 12 most deadly assassins in the United States. They formed together to help each other plan and execute extremely diffciult hits. The group has been responsible for the deaths of at least 8 heads of state, and only 3 were actually known to be assassinations. The original members of the group included Benito, the Butcher, the Crusher, Egg-Head, the Giant Killer, Lady Killer, Owl, Satan, Skully, Snake Eyes, Sniffer and the Turk. They usually took direction from Satan, who was the most experienced of them all. This group was eventually brought to justice by the hero known as Daredevil. After that, they were offered a pardon, if they worked as killers for the United States government in the Pacific theater of World War II. The group was honorable enough and patriotic enough to do what was asked of them, but upon returning to the United States, the group staged a breakout, and went on the lamb. Some members were re-captured, and some were killed. Sniffer, the last free and living man of the original members of the group was offered protection from the law if he helped to form a new Deadly Dozen, to be controlled by the Green Sorceress and trained to be more deadly by The Bolt. The new group includes: Sniffer, Iron Jaw, The Bolt, Cobra, Fang, Frost, Huntress, Lady Serpent, Manx, Minxy Sphinx, Thrilla and Torch.
