The Revenge Society are group of super-villains who formed the group in opposition to the Guild of Calamitous Intent. It was formed by Phantom Limb after he escaped the custody of his former allegiance but it consisted of household tools and was too pathetic looking to be taken as a threat due to the latter's mental instability. Later on, the group gained super-human members and became a real threat.
History[edit | edit source]
Formation[edit | edit source]
A Delusional Man's Quest[edit | edit source]
After escaping the Guild for at least a year, a now mentally unstable Phantom Limb changed his alias to Revenge and attempted to overthrow Bowie by stealing the Orb, but first had to kidnap Council of 13 members Red Mantle and Dragoon whom he believed to know its whereabouts. After a battle that nearly killed Dragoon, Phantom Limb was forced to kidnap Billy Quizboy to perform a life saving surgery on Dragoon that involved sewing Dragoon's head to Red Mantle's body. He made the three of them members of his society against their wills and showed them the other members, who appeared to be inanimate objects: a shoe, a coffee mug, and a toaster. Billy would reveal that Rusty Venture had the Orb in an attempt to be freed. Phantom Limb then got the Orb before the Guild, but was unable to use it due to its being broken. The Sovereign then revealed that Phantom Limb is not the rightful Sovereign, but Dean Venture was, and The Sovereign named Dean the Sovereign. Dean then passed the right to be Sovereign back to The Sovereign, who captured Phantom Limb and decided to have the crazed man imprisoned.
A New Group[edit | edit source]
Phantom Limb later escaped thanks to the inanimate object members of the Revenge Society, which were revealed to be Phantom Limb's missing limbs. After escaping Phantom Limb went to see his old friend Professor Impossible, whom he knew from Jonas Venture's Boys Brigade and believe was his only hope for regenerating his remaining missing limbs. Richard decided to help and the two successfully restored Phantom Limb back to normal. Phantom Limb then recruited Impossible to The Revenge Society. The two were then joined by the now dethroned ruler Baron Ünderbheit, who had been living on the street near One Impossible Plaza and requested permission to joined their new group.
The group then started to host a recruitment at Impossible Industries but they were unable to collect anyone with useful abilities, only gaining three members (Fat Chance, Lady-Hawk, and Lyndon-Bee). When the group discovered that Dr. Thaddeus "Rusty" Venture was in New York they lured him to the building and attempted to kill him, but a mistake with Fat Chance caused the superscientist to instead be sent to an alternate dimension, escaping their clutches. While this was happening Cody Impossible (Richard's ex-brother-in-law and the building's power source) was accidentally freed by Dean Venture and the building lost power, ultimately going up in flames. The Revenge Society escaped the building with Richard's powers and hid in an abandoned mansion in Newark, New Jersey.
First Heist[edit | edit source]
The remaining members of The Revenge Society watched the recent Guild of Calamitous Intent's council meeting at their new headquarters and it is shown they have now inducted Dr. Henry Killinger as a new member of their group.
Months later, under the tutelage of Dr. Henry Killinger, the group became a more competent and stronger organization. They received new uniforms and gained new abilities. Killinger assisted in helping Baron Ünderbheit learn how to use his mechanical jaw in when involved in fighting, and got Fat Chance and Professor Impossible to improve and learn with their powers. It is never stated what happened to Lady-Hawyk or Lydon-Bee, but Killinger seemed to have replaced them. They were replaced with Radical Left and Scott Hall going as "Zero". Killinger had arranged for the group's first mission to pull a big heist on the Gargantua-2 casino. However, apparently unknown to all, Phantom Limb was planning on double-crossing them due to a deal with the Soveriegn and the Investors.
However, Phantom Limb's betrayal was revealed and causing his supposed allies to abandoned the group when the space station began to fall under distress from an asteroid attack. Zero was killed by Brock when he attempted to take revenge on him for his previous beating at the agent's hands and killing other "henches". Professor Impossible escape with Sally; though not as a reconciliation, mostly because Sally didn't want Rocket to lose his father due to his choice. Since he was seen at J. J.'s funeral by Sally's side, he most likely left the Revenge Society. Ünderbheit escaped the explosion and went back to Earth, though what happened to Fat Chance is completely unknown.
The rest of the Society escape to their new lair, Meteor Majeure, given to them by Killinger, deciding some of them will serve as a new Council of 13 alongside Dr. Mrs. The Monarch and whomever else he chooses.
