The Snowbirds

Named after a theme around quick support and peace-keeping measures opposed to brute force, The Snowbirds were initially a coalition of metahuman and peak human members, privately-established in Montreal in 1984 by Raymond Badeau (Entourage) and Robert Lemmond (Triage); lacking government support or initiative until two years following. By 1986, the loose and sometimes unstable coalition of revolving masked identities become a true established super group; retaining four core members during their era known as "The Good Six" while receiving funding as a semi-national hero force that worked within Quebec and Ontario.

By the time the new decade rolled over Entourage, Triage and Silver Ghost parted ways with The Snowbirds for personal reasons and endeavors, prompting a new line up of heroic identities to work within the super group name throughout the 1990's and 2000's. The 1992 events in and around the attack on Detroit by the hand of Doctor Destroyer forced the group to evolve from its previous peace-keeping, defensive upbringing and became a more proactive band that expanded their base of operations across the entire country when requested. The Snowbirds periodically accompanied and assisted the rising Toronto-based Canadian superteam StarForce, especially involving VIPER, though sought no effort to match their or other rising group's level of national recognition. In 2012 shortly after recruiting the son of Triage, the super group officially disbanded through mutual decision.
