The Zenith Team.

Five young superheroes

who fought to protect the world from evil.

Led by Captain Zoom

and his brother Concussion,

the team saved many lives.

Team Zenith.

Oh, and with the help of their sidekick,

Dr. Grant.

The government sought to enhance

the team's powers

using Gamma-13 radiation.

Zoom got faster and stronger,

but the Gamma turned Concussion

to the dark side.

He turned on his own team.

Zoom lost his powers

and his brother.

We're coming up now.

Prepare to deactivate cloaking device.

I told you not to call me

unless the world was going to end.

I don't know about the world ending,

but we've been tracking

a pan-dimensional anomaly

that seems to be moving toward

our time-space continuum.

Dr. Grant, I speak Greek, not geek.

Let me put it this way.

Concussion is still alive,

and he's coming back.

He was destroyed.


-We were there. We both saw it.


Twelve days and counting.

The time has come.

I'm reactivating the Zenith Program.

Find me some kids.

Misfits, outcasts, weirdos.

Give me that file.

Zoom's the only one who can train them.

Now, get to Long Beach,

find him, evaluate his condition,

and bring him back here.

You know he won't cooperate.

You won the Nobel Prize, Doctor.

You'II think of something.

Okay, he's looking. Come now.

There's a car coming, Iady.

Hey, Iook out.

Yeah, you're sure you're okay, huh?

-That guy almost killed me.

-Watch out for the


Should have told you

about those grease spots.

Come on, get up.


-Hello, Zoom.

-It's Jack.

Okay, Jack.

It's good to see you.

Wow. You got old.

It's been, what, 30 years?

-What are you doing here, Grant?

-We're starting up a new team.

Men's slow-pitch softball?

No, a new Zenith team.

-You can't be serious.

-We are serious, Mr. Shepard.

-Why is the green dress talking?

-I'm a psychologist.

I'm sorry. This is Miss Holloway.

She works with me.

Yes, and despite the theatrics,

which were not my idea, by the way,

you're the only one who can help us.

You're the only superhero Ieft.

Somebody's been giving you

the wrong information.

So, if you'II excuse me, I got work to do.

We're here to take you back,

not to invite you back.

And we're authorized to use

whatever means necessary.

-Grant, Grant, Grant.

-You can't shoot him.



Trick or treat.

Here you go, sweetie.

Trick or treat.

-Thank you.

-Thanks a Iot.

-Give it here, Howdy Doo-Doo.


Oh, my gosh.

Thank you.

I'II take that.

She's so weird.


That was a good one.

Oh, my gosh.

What just happened?

How does my hair Iook?


Perhaps you'd Iike to come up

and finish Newton's equation?

I think Newton can finish his own equation.

Now, Dylan.


Check it out.

Lard-butt's going to snap the board in half.

Wake up, Zoom.

Zoom? Welcome back to Area 52.

Thank you, Grant, for bringing me

back to a place

I've been avoiding for the Iast 30 years.

You have two choices as I understand it.

One is to stay here

and the other is to go directly to prison.

How Iong in prison?

We are also very happy to pay you $500,000.

You know you could've just said that

instead of shooting me with a dart.


Mr. Shepard.

Mr. Shepard, I can't tell you how happy I am

that you've come aboard.

It's you.

Do you have an inner-ear problem

or something?



Right, Jack.

Miss Holloway is our Ieading researcher

in the area of Iatent superhuman abilities.

She'II be in charge of

training the new Zenith team.

She's also quite a fan of yours.

I have every issue of
