Synopsis
Trying to increase their revenue, the Legion members decide to publish their own comic book, Suicide Slum Comics, and they create a hero team called the Fearless Defenders to battle villains based on actual ones in the area in which they live. The Guardian reads an issue and confirms a suspicion he has had about some crooks in the slum area, so he moves in to capture them and save the Legion members.
