The Vanguard are a team of superpowered entities whose territory is the entire cosmos. Roaming the stars in their sentient starship Drone, they visit planets, doing what good they can before departing to the next star system. Their membership is composed primarily of individuals who command some fundamental cosmic power.

The Vanguard's first and only visit to Earth to date was their attempt to capture Superman due to a case of mistaken identity. The New Teen Titans arrived to help and soon both teams discovered that Brainiac had murdered Vanguard member Black Nebula and abducted Superman to serve as an organic power source for his interstellar war machines.

The Vanguard teamed up with the Titans to defeat Brainiac and rescue Superman. Although grateful to the Titans for their assistance, the Vanguard chose to resume wandering across space.
