History

DV8 (or referred to as "The Deviants") initially living in New York under the supervision of Ivana Baiul, who sends them on life-threatening black ops assignments.

Rather than saving the world, they use their powers for other demoralizing reasons: to please themselves and indulge in any fancy that comes their way, uncaring about anybody else, just to forget that they are all just pawns to Ivana, expendable to her needs and desires. The members don't like each other, but are soon banding together for survival. This is what stands this book apart from most other superhero teams: they aren't heroes, they are not nice people, don't even like each other and can't even save themselves, let alone the world.

When Ivana Baiul became director of International Operations, DV8 become agents of I.O. as well, at this point some of the members start to develop a conscience about their actions, especially Frostbite.

In light of the Worldstorm reboot, which preserved some aspects of the Wildstorm Universe's original history while rewriting others, often creating apparent contradictions, the status of DV8 in Wildstorm continuity is uncertain.

World's End

Several DV8 members were listed amongst the inmates of the I.O. "cold storage" prison. A gang of superpowered criminals, working for Tao, had apparently seized control of this prison. One of the gang members, Trance, was ordered by Tao to hypnotize the superpowered inmates of the prison, programming them to serve Tao following the World's End.

Notes

DV8 were often referred to as the ultra-violent and amoral counterparts to their rivals Gen 13.
