Overview

Contents

The Vindicators are a hero group led by Ms. Liberty. They can often be found with Longbow fighting Arachnos in the Rogue Isles.

History

The Vindicators believe in second chances and are willing to see the good in heroes that might have previously strayed from the path. This can be seen most recently when they recruited Malaise into their ranks.

Manticore had been following the 5th Column group and came to the Elliots’ aid. The battle was going poorly, when Lena lashed out with her psychic abilities, stunning many of the villains.
