The International Club of Heroes was a loose confederation of vigilantes operating all over the world. Their main thing in common was that they were all inspired to become heroes by Batman - and so they were also known as the Batmen of All Nations.


Brought together by reclusive millionaire John Mayhew, they were given a private island headquarters and a large budget. Together, they became the Club of Heroes. However, the members of the Club were too prone to fight one another, and so they split up, mostly staying out of each other's way.

Years later, after his voyage around the world in the wake of Infinite Crisis, Batman decided to try to reconnect with these heroes.

When a secret organization called the Black Glove attacked Batman and his allies, Robin summoned the Club of Heroes to Gotham. Upon arriving, the team rescued Robin from an attack by members of the Club of Villains and then, the team took care of all the small factions of the organization around Gotham.[1]

Returning to the island, the heroes were attacked by the Wingman and John Mayhew, acting at the behest of the Black Glove. Several of the heroes were killed, and ultimately the heroes were left with little closure. However, Batman vowed to bring the villains to justice.
