Justice leads. When there is a crisis the other heroes and the world look to us first to deal with it, to rally others. We set the example.
The original members of Justice Anonymous first came together after individually responding to the the second Martian War of the Worlds. SHADOW was quickly overwhelmed and it was left to the metahuman and paranormal community to step in. Afterwards some of the individuals decided they could more effectively fight evil and protect the innocent together than alone and formed Justice Anonymous. Anonymous in name because vigilantes must never again be witch hunted as they were in the 1950s.
Soon after defeating an invasion from below Justice
Anonymous became the first hero group to receive official recognition from the
U.S. Government and from international ones as well. National
governments realized that the Earth could be threatened by alien invaders which SHADOW may not be able to deal with or despots with world-wide ambitions. Justice then became sponsored by the National Security Council of the U.S. Government and by the United Nations as well, and this support was written into their charter. This support has been retained and expanded over the years but not without difficulty. Government support includes access to privileged or classified information, exemption from certain Federal regulations, and a wide-ranging elimination of the kind of red tape that usually accumulates after heroes demolish a world-threatening menace along with the city block where said menace had been standing. Government support does not extend to providing funds to support Justice activities. They instead receive funds from the Tomorrow Corporation, secretly owned by one of its members.
