The third version of what is clearly one of the best superheroes composed of nano wasps, Bombshell 3.0 is all the things she should be. Confident, relentlessly honest, and extremely effective, Bombshell and her wasps are an important part of the team.
Created as an upgrade of Bombshell 2.0, Bombshell 3.0 is approximately 4-5 months old. Little is known of the first two Bombshell robots; Bombshell 3.0 has said she heard that 2.0 was "intense." As a living collective, Bombshell can control her nano wasps singly or in groups, breaking down into a swarm to travel and reconstitute elsewhere. She can also send an individual nano wasp to accomplish a simple task such as spying on others or harassing an enemy.
Interestingly, she has noted that she has no sense of smell and that her perky, optimistic attitude was deliberately programmed in by the scientists who created her. Being in essence a living computer, she has also made frequent use of her internet connection to look up terms she doesn't recognize, and can release printouts of her findings, or her interaction logs.

The self proclaimed, "WAVE OF THE FUTURE", Riptide is a master of all things water related. He is a more seasoned superhero with a specific sore spot for one Johnny Legion.
Riptide's powers are formidible. Through his hydrokinesis, he can sense any liquid nearby and affect its shape and temperature; blood is a frequent target of his. He can also temporarily dissolve his body into a liquid state, maneuvering through tight places.

Bitten by a radioactive mummy, Lady Veil is a master of the textile. She can wrap things up in the most fashionable of ways and then regenerate when the situation calls for it, which it does quite often.
In action, Lady Veil can control fabric and fabric fibers around her and teleport within a limited range. Her undead nature also allows her to cheat death and regenerate, but the process takes some time.
Lady Veil is a creature of the night at heart, and has no permanent abode.

A former teenage sidekick, Butch Baker, known as Kid Titan, left the superhero life after losing his powers and wrote a tell all book based on his experiences as a young super with the 80's group the Radicals (catchphrase: "It's time for something Radical!"), including Blue Streak. He has said that the book was based on his journals from that period, and that he hadn't intended for the book to cover quite the ground that it did. The negative backlash from this book was considerable, unsurprisingly; a few went so far as to issue death threats, and many in the superhero community consider him effectively blacklisted.
Kid Titan is known to have a particularly acrimonious relationship with Eric Masters, also known as Armor Guy. Masters was a preeminent member of the Sentinels but made a fortune selling powered down, unreliable versions of his armor; in his writings, Baker speculated this this move "privatized superheroing", causing the end of the classic superhero team rescue missions and the rise of superheroes as reality TV stars, and Masters took it personally. Baker has also noted that while Masters prefers to be addressed as The Rivet, he continues to use the old moniker, Armor Guy, partly because that's how he knew Masters, and partly because he knows Masters finds the old name irritating.
He also remains very sensitive about a childhood bungle so epic it has come to be known as "going rocketboots". A video of this incident can be found on youtube. Specifically, at age 12, Kid Titan was in the midst of a battle with the Radicals in Times Square against an evil super group when his opponent used mimicry to trigger his voice activated rocketboots. The boots flew him randomly around New York, injuring several bystanders and causing some property damage. Because of this trauma, Butch has barely looked at the offending boots since, and refuses to fly in airplanes.
Following his sidekick career, Baker took up the classic hard-drinking, low income life of a private investigator, mostly dealing with marital infidelity, and working out of a rather shabby office he partially furnished with boxes of his memoir covered in sheets. All of that changed when a super powered stranger unexpectedly picked up a bus and bludgeoned him with it. He took his survival as a sign that after 20 years he had finally regained his powers, and he donned the heroic mantle again.
Drawing on his heroic heritage, Kid Titan draws upon a number of classically super abilities--super speed, and super strength, for instance. Damage, for him, usually undergoes a strange conversion process to make him stronger. He also gains extended sense awareness through his direct line to a computer named Hal.

A superstar superhero, Hashtag Hashtag is quite simply...stunning. A shameless social media hound, Hashtag Hashtag makes a point of always taking a selfie while attacking, so he has something to share with his followers. In combat, Hashtag wields a variety of grenades realeasing anything from standard shrapnel to glue, and can mentally erect a force field around himelf at will.

Born in the faewyld, Hex is an arcane twelve year old who can remove your soul all while reciting poetry. Oh, and she also has an invisible 900lb anthropomorphized bunny companion named Harvey.
Only Hex and Harvey know how or where they found each other, but their devotion to one another is absolute. Indeed, so few people seem to be aware of Harvey's presence that little is known about him in general. We do know that Harvey sharpens his claws on his teeth, and, interestingly, than he has a particular soft spot for meat, especially fried chicken.
In action, Hex Destiny makes up for her smaller stature with a number of abilities. Her enormous sword can be ridden like a floating skateboard or brandished to steal soul pieces from anyone she hits. She can also cast virtually any spell she can think of, but only by composing and reciting a fresh haiku to direct it.

Douchey jerk Johnny Legion was not initially a friend of the members of Alpha Squad; indeed, during the shooting of American Sentinel, he met with the showrunners and worked out plans to turn supervillain. When superheroes started dying, however, Legion feared for his life and sought protection from Alpha Squad.
Little is known about his acrimonious past with Rip Tide.
In combat, Johnny Legion splits into an original and several duplicates of himself, so that he can act as a one man team to take down his foes.
Johnny Legion is known to tie his hair up in a bun; when severed, the bun did attack him on one occasion.
