10 Criminally Underrated Super Teams In DC Comics

Not every team can be A-list material. That doesn't mean they don't deserve some attention.

No one hero can do it alone. Certainly, there's something intrinsically appealing about a character who doesn't need help and walks a solitary path, but ultimately, even superheroes are social creatures. It's no surprise, then, that both comic book heroes and villains look to unite socially.

Even someone with a reputation like Batman has no less than fourty-six supporting players. Combine five or six Robins (depending on how far down the reboot-hole you wish to travel) with the likes of Huntress, Oracle and Alfred, and it's clear that Gotham's Caped Crusader has an entire network supporting him.

Perhaps the most famous of these cliques is the Justice League of America. Founded by the top-tier heroes within the DC Universe, the league has been a stalwart piece of DC since its inception. That being said, the league gets plenty of attention, as does their younger counterparts, the Teen Titans.

Rather than going through those teams again, let's take the opportunity to look at the dynamics of other teams on both sides of the morality spectrum that populate the DC Universe. Teams that have a fond place in hearts of older readers, or simply don't have the level of notoriety that more famous groups have found.
