The Inferior Five is a superhero team in the DC Universe  made up of well-meaning, misfit superheroes.

OriginEdit

The children of the beloved superhero team The Freedom Brigade, the Inferior Five formed to continue their work, despite their bizarre quirks.

HistoryEdit

The Freedom Brigade was once a superhero team made of some of the greatest heroes of all time.  Over time, many of the members married and had children of their own.  Eventually, the heroes retired and the children of those heroes formed their own superhero team in their parents place.  Unfortunately, despite the characters good intentions, each one had quirks made fighting crime for them more difficult.


The team consisted of Awkwardman (who was physically powerful but had poor coordination), the White Feather (a skilled by cowardly archer), Dumb Bunny (a woman who could turn super strong at the cost of her intelligence), the Blimp (a man with the power to fly but was also slow and obese) and Merryman, the leader who would prefer to be a cartoonist.
