The New Olympians is a group of mortal supervillains who were given their abilities by the Monitor. They were assembled by Maxie Zeus to assault the 1984 Olympic Games in L.A., with President Reagan in attendance. Batman intervened and challenged the New Olympians to compete with his Outsiders in a variety of contests.

Vulcanus and Proteus II challenged Metamorpho and Black Lightning to a sort of combat handball, but were defeated.
