Welcome to The Crimebusters!

Crimebusters Main Page | Submitting a Character | Crimebusters Background

Dr. Lance WestinThe Crimebusters, later known as the Liberty Legion, were the first true team of superheroes of the world. While many organizations, such as the Berlin Club, had in the past a worthy mix of powers and knowledge of the paranormal (von Hammer, 1899), none could be described as a non-governmental gathering of superhumans dedicated to helping the innocent. Beginning in 1938, both the general public and the media in the United States of America hailed these men and women as champions of justice.

The excerpts of formerly classified logs and reports writen by Captain Jake Lobo, mentor to the team provide an excellent history of the Crimebusters/Liberty Legion (Lobo, 1938, Lobo, 1939, Lobo, 1940, Lobo, 1942, Lobo, 1944, Lobo, 1945, Lobo, 1946). Indeed one can easily postulate that all current superhero teams in some way emulate these groundbreakers or at least have drawn inspiration from them.

In the next chapter, we will discuss the basic composition and psychology of modern heroic superteams. Recently unclassified reports written by Sergeant David Baker, describes an evaluation of such people and what it took physically and psychologically to be a member of the Crimebusters/Liberty Legion.
