The team remained together after their first appearance, in order to safeguard reality from supernatural menaces. This included keeping a watch over the one weapon that could stop the Spectre, the Spear of Destiny.


In the Infinite Crisis mini-series Day of Vengeance, six of DC's magical heroes, including Blue Devil, Enchantress, and Ragman, joined forces against the Spectre again. However, this team was called the Shadowpact.
