First Appearance: Batman and the Outsiders #14 (October, 1984)

History: (Batman and the Outsiders #14, 15)-When Maxie Zeus needed agents to disrupt the 1984 Olympics he contacted the Monitor, who assembled the New Olympians. The New Olympians have the names of Greek and Roman gods, as well as corresponding powers. Their powers may or may not have come from the Monitor himself. The New Olympians arrived at the Olympics to abduct athlete Lacinia Nitocris and convince her to be Maxie Zeus' bride. The Outsiders II confronted them, and Maxie Zeus demanded that the teams compete against each other in olympic games to determine the fate of Nitocris. The Outsiders prevailed, and the New Olympians have not been heard from since.
