The Newsboy Legion were a team of reformed juvenile delinquents active during the years spanning World War II. Police officer Jim Harper, also known as the Guardian, took the rambunctious youths under his wing and made sure to keep them on the straight and narrow.

Following the war, the kids stayed together, and as adults they came under the employ of a genetic research facility known as Project Cadmus. The Legion secretly worked as scientists to creating a clone of the then aged and retired Jim Harper; however, they eventually admitted of their actions to Harper and were consequently killed by Codename: Assassin. Cadmus used skin samples from each of the deceased Legion members and created clones of them. The clones were instantly grown to the age that the original hosts were first active as the Newsboy Legion. The clones eventually escaped from Project Cadmus and became the second Newsboy Legion.
