History: (JLA #70, 72, 74) - <1004 BC> Rama Khan saw a prophecy of a “seven-headed hydra” that would bring about destruction. He found Gamemnae, and proposed to form a league of heroes from around the world to combat the threat, not realizing it was she who sent him the prophecy. She knew the JLA would arrive in their era and try to stop her schemes of conquering Atlantis, and wanted them dead. With the additions of Manitou Raven, Tezumak, Whaler, the Anointed One, and warrior woman Sela the Ancients were formed and went on to become the greatest hero team of their era. They ruled Atlantis after Gamemnae had raised it from the sea. Sela enjoyed the battles that accompanied defending Atlantis, as well as the nighttime company of the Atlanteans. The Ancients sent Tezumak and Manitou Raven over 3,000 years into the future to combat the JLA, but they returned defeated. The JLA followed them into the past, and the Ancients confronted them and slew them. Manitou Raven had realized that Gamemnae was evil, not the JLA, and cast a spell to preserve them. Gamemnae confronted him, revealing that she was going to kill the Ancients so they couldn’t oppose her bid for Atlantis to conquer the world. She’d absorbed Rama Khan into her body and was about to do the same to Manitou when he fled, so she turned her attention to her other teammates. She killed Tezumak and the Anointed One, and absorbed the rest into her body. Another JLA traveled to the past and put an end to Gamemnae and her schemes.
