This is part of an official mission of the Justice Agency, and an unofficial mission of Young Justice.
During a large confrontation with Jacob Smith and The League of Shadows, Young Justice found itself surrounded by a group of trained assassins, now far deadlier under the improved leadership of Smith. This was their first major confrontation with the League following the disposition of their former leader, the largely ineffective Lord Falcon. Phobos Crane, leader of The Legion of Fear, was quickly alerted of the confrontation by his psychic alternate personality, Mr. Blue, and rushed to the scene to rescue his brother, Tim Crane, fourth in command of Young Justice, betraying Smith, his former ally. Furious with Phobos, Smith put out a large bounty on the Crane brother's heads, attracting both Rendezvous and The Injustice League and the former Lord Falcon, looking for redemption by eliminating the two. Although Young Justice was eager to stage a rescue mission, the Justice Agency, not trusting the team on such a high profile and dangerous case, instead sent out their two best Agents, Alaska and Atlantis to rescue the Crane brothers for questioning as part of Operation Rescue Mission. A secondary team has also been sent, comprised of several Justice Agents dissatisfied with the number of missions going to Atlantis and Alaska and eager to prove themselves. The team was placed into lock down by the Justice League to assure they stayed out of the mission, put under the strict watch of the team's resident den mother Jackson Reed, and JAMPP Agent Brofsky Uktarf, Jr.. However, the team, unwilling to let their teammate go without their aid, began to plot an escape plan to go and stage a rescue mission of their own. Meanwhile, the reunited Crane brothers hide in an undisclosed location, running from attackers on all sides. Hoping to swindle Smith out of his money, as well as train his apprentice, Lennox Chase takes Betis(Mamba)Forthing on their own hunt for the Crane brothers.
Due to the danger of the mission and the large amount of parties involved, Director Olympus hired a secondary (beta) team for Operation Rescue Mission to aid Agents Alaska & Atlantis in locating the Crane brothers, composed of quadruplet Agents Bermuda, Utopia, Northwest and Maine, as well as former MIA Agent Iowa. Jealous of Alaska and Atlantis, who have assumed nearly all of the Agency's large missions, the group seeks to prove themselves and outshine Alaska and Atlantis, whom they see as unworthy of their praise.
