The Allied Supermen of America was created as an homage to the Golden Age Justice Society of America and the Silver Age Justice League.

Fictional team history[edit]

Kid Supreme was "dropped off" at World War II by the time travelling League of Infinity (a homage to the Silver Age Legion of Super Heroes). There he met this superhero team and soon joined. The team disbanded in 1949. However, the team later joined again in the 1970s as the "Allies", an homage to the current Justice League. When they reformed as the Allies, Spacehunter (Martian Manhunter) and Fisherman (Green Arrow) joined. Supreme returned to his normal time . Supreme reformed the team to battle Hulver Ramik, who was working for Optilux. The team donned special helmets to enter the astral plane that Optilux was using to trap the souls of heroes (include Prof. Night). The team freed the souls and trapped Optilux. Among the trapped souls were Polyman (Plastic Man) and Stormbirds (Blackhawks). The team helped Supreme defeat Darius Dax (Lex Luthor), who had a robotic body. However, due to the Supremium in his robotic body, he fell back in time and became the very meteor that gave Supreme his powers.
