The Cadre were a group of supervillains whose powers were bestowed by the cosmic alien Overmaster to assist him in his efforts to test humanity's fitness to inhabit Earth.


The Cadre opposed the Justice League on many different occasions and in various incarnations. Several members have died, only to be replaced by newly empowered recruits.

There was also another version of the Cadre called the Cadre of the Immortal; this version was made up of international metahumans deluded by an agent of the Overmaster that claimed to be Prester John, the Immortal. The Mahayogi was killed while freeing JLI member Maya from mind control. After the truth was revealed Seneca and Osiris joined the JLI in their battle against the Overmaster. The Cadre has not been seen since and is presumed to have disbanded.
