Or the 90s team could be the The Saviors of the Net.
Fearless Leader: He should have an origin that keeps the tragic
dimension Dvandom gave him (which was used to great effect by Arthur
during Leadership Crisis), but isn't tied to alternate timelines since
we already have Ultimate Mercenary and Ex-Manga Man Gold for that. So
maybe: Felix Landers was once Flamebroiled Lad, the youngest member of
the Saviors of the Net. He grew up in the slums of Netropolis and
gained his powers when some robbers attempted to steal the Antikythera
Mechanism from the Netropolitan Museum of History. The Antikythera
Mechanism is a relic of an ancient civilization which developed an
internet even more powerful than ours, but their civilization was
destroyed by the psychic feedback from a massive flamewar. It gave him
the power to channel the anger of the entire internet. The Saviors of
the Net helped him control this power and find peace. But then they
were betrayed by one of their own, Captain Killfile. Felix was the
only one who escaped the killfile, but in the process he lost his
powers. Yet he still fought on to save the Earth, having been trained
in hand-to-hand combat by Chromium Age Very-Disturbed-Scary-Creature-
Man. He worked for Pla.net.ary Investigations during the Lost Years.
During this period he gained a lot of experience as a hero and became
a skilled fighter and strategist. When the Killfile fell he started
seeking out new net.heroes to found the LNH.
Fearless Leader lost his ability to feel emotions after losing his
original powers and gradually gained it back over a period of years.
He has faced an enormous amount of suffering and overcome it, but the
losses he's undergone still haunt him. The Fearless Leader of today is
kind and understanding but distant. He cares deeply for his teammates
but still has difficulty forming friendships after the loss of his old
team. Like the old version, he's basically the straight man to the
weirdness of the Looniverse. He's also the only senior member who can
put up with Ultimate Mercenary, because he reminds him a bit of his
Oh, and the Flame-Broiled Force is still out there, seeking a new host.
