Infinity, Inc. was a super-hero team comprised mainly of the children of members of the Justice Society of America. Eventually, the team disbanded, and the rights to its name went to the Pemberton Estate. The estate was purchased by Lex Luthor, who used the name for his new team of six individuals who had been granted superpowers by his Everyman Project.
Prior to receiving their name, the team successfully foiled an attempted terrorist attack on Dearborne Air Force Base by followers of Kobra. Luthor used footage of this battle for a publicity video he planned to release, showcasing the team. He also planned many media appearances and interviews to spread the group's popularity. The media often referred to the group as "Luthor's Own Justice League".
The first public appearance of the team under their new name occurred in Las Vegas, where they fought the new Blockbuster. After the battle, they encountered the Teen Titans, who questioned the validity of using the Infinity, Inc. name as well as their connection to Luthor. While they talked, Blockbuster freed himself, resulting in the death of Trajectory.
Trajectory has since been replaced by Matrix, a pin-up model who has displayed superhuman strength and invisibility, similar to the original Matrix.
A new member, a new version of Jade with plant-based powers, debuted with the team on Thanksgiving Day. This led to the team being attacked by an angry Obsidian, the brother of the original Jade, who had recently died. Alan Scott intervenes and breaks up the fight. Infinity, Inc. then claims that the older heroes will soon be replaced.
This version of Infinity Inc. makes frequent appearances in the local media, acting both as a commercial stunt for the "Everyman Project", and as a control system against rogue metahumans spawned from the Project itself.
Natasha begins to collect evidence against Luthor and the Everyman Project for John Henry Irons and enlists Skyman to help her. Skyman is later killed by Everyman, who then assumes his identity, and reveals Natasha's duplicity to Luthor. Luthor captures Natasha as bait to lure out Steel and reveals that he has used the exo-gene therapy on himself and now possesses the same powers as Superman. Recruiting the Teen Titans, John Henry storms LexCorp to rescue Natasha.
The Titans take on Nuklon and others while Irons faces Everyman and Luthor. Luthor severely injures Irons and impales him with his own hammer before Natasha is able to destroy Lex's exo-gene with an electromagnetic pulse from Steel's hammer. Afterwards, the remaining members of Infinity, Inc., along with Luthor's bodyguard Mercy, are taken into custody while Natasha and John Henry reunite.
In 52 Week 50, day six, Nuklon, Jade, Matrix and Fury are seen among the heroes during World War III. Alan Scott asks them to help in the final push against Black Adam, only for them to refuse and flee the battlefield.

Another longterm patient, teenager Dale Smith, attacks his therapist and realizes his powers as a psychic vampire. Smith takes the name "Kid Empty."
