It's a Throwback To...
1940s spy films with a metahuman twist.
The Setup
FDR forms a superpowered quintet to end the Nazi menace... unless a conspiracy destroys the group first.
A Timeless Tale?
Depends on the time: Writer B. Clay Moore gleefully inserts a subversive spin (e.g., the patriotic supersoldier is a selfish bastard) to depict how the world might react to real masked heroes.
