CLOSE in terms of Marvel era and the whole surprise mutant thing ... but this team never really made it out of the 1980s (like most toy-associated heros)

NOT:
Iron Man
Daredevil
Captain America
Falcon
Spiderman
Cloak and Dagger

Not Dazz nor US 1

Quis is getting closer ... this team ended up having to change their name because Marvel wanted to keep them BUT there was a far more famous (completely unrelated) show using the name

G.I. Joe is a mutant? That should change some hearts and minds on the subject! smile

LOL ... it's NOT GI Joe... this was a replacement line for the (far more popular) Evel Knieval line of toys

CMK has it!

Evel Knievel toys had to be rebranded because he was in jail for battery and assault. The toy line was renamed Team America (until that name was taken by a WAY more popular TV show).

Team America was a stunt cycle team who had a mysterious benefactor - the Dark Rider. The New Mutants went to a show and ended up getting involved with Viper (who was after the Dark Rider). Well, since the New Mutants are involved, of course it turns out that Team America are mutants - with the ability to project their skills onto a person to craft a gestalt being, the Dark Rider. Notably, this is the story where Karma "dies" (she actually gets possessed by the Shadow King).

Team America is brought back into Marvel in Captain America where they have been renamed the THUNDER RIDERS.

Clearly all the makings of a legendary team whose impact will be widely felt.

Ahem.

Over to you, CMK

This led to manufacturers putting "Battery Not Included" on the box of their toys. smile
