JLU BIO BY COMIC VINEEdit

The Newsboy Legion appeared in the Justice League Unlimited episode "Patriot Act", wherein they made an unnamed cameo appearance at a parade. There, they expressed discontent that none of the "good" heroes were present, and later witnessed the fight between various Leaguers and General Wade Eiling. When the rest of the crowd fled the scene, the Newsboys remained behind and attempted to aid the Leaguers, their major effort involving throwing bits of debris at Eiling and commandeering a wrecking ball. They were assigned to crowd control by Vigilante, who was hoping to keep them out of harm's way. At the end of the episode they were shown playing at being the members of the League that they had earlier disparaged.

COMIC BOOK BIO BY COMIC VINEEdit

The Newsboy Legion consisted of four orphans who lived on the streets of Suicide Slum, attempting to support themselves by honest means- selling newspapers. However, this business could not always support the group, and they occasionally turned to less licit means, generally stripping cars and selling the parts to Frankie the Fence. Eventually they made an attempt to rob a hardware store for tools to fix up the shack in which they were living, but failed. They had been frequently in trouble with the law because of their extra-legal activities, and this final crime had them brought before a judge who was about to sentence the boys to reform school until they came of age. However, Officer Jim Harper, who had a soft spot for the boys, stepped in, and they were instead placed under his guardianship. The boys suspected that their guardian was in fact the superhero Guardian, however they remained unsure of his secret identity for much of their time together.
