Desperate to regain public favor, the Ultranomalies banded together and created a CODE of strict self censorship to clean up their act (and better fit Wertham’s vision).

If you weren’t code approved you couldn’t operate as a hero!

Obviously the abrasive Mr. Bastard and Jinx got shut down. But even the Shelf (who is relatively respected) was shut down simply for being in opposition to the Code!

It was a dire state. Comply or Die!

But then everything changed.

Instead of compliance–Rodney and Dornail fought back!!

And for the first time ever–Ultrat got utterly crushed by an opponent!
