Justice Force

The Justice Force on the cover of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #15.


Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.

The Justice Force is a group of superheroes that fight for justice.


The Justice Force appeared in the comic "Dome Doom!", where they were at first shown to be a comic book team that Michangelo was reading about. Eventually, it turn outs they were apparently a retired group of super heroes and Doctor Dome is their old adversary. the rest of the team, which consists of Stainless Steel Steve, Metal Head (the stock boy), Captain Deadbolt, Zippy Lad, Joey Lastic the Rubberband, and Battling Bernice. The only two that stuck together were Stainless Steve and Metal Head, who worked at Steve's Comics.

One day, Casey Jones, Raphael, and Michelangelo are checking out the comic books at Steve's Comics shop. As the guys search for cheap back issues, the store is attacked by weird little robots that crash through the front window brandishing maces. Metal Head and Steve assisted the Turtles and Casey. After the fight, a hologram of Doctor Dome appeared and reveals he was planning to get revenge on the team. Steve takes Mike, Raph, Don, Leo and Casey to his huge house out in the suburbs to introduce them to the Justice Force. The Turtles have offered their assistance in defeating Doctor Dome and his mechanical minions. As the group arrives at the front door, Steve remarks that he hadn't left it unlocked... but it is now. Everyone prepares for battle. Our heroes burst through the doors and are met by a costumed man in a wheelchair. "Zippy!" exclaims Metal Head as he rushes to hug his old friend. Joey Elastic is also there and the old timers explain how the years of wear and tear have taken a toll on their bodies and abilities, but they're still rarin' to go. They find out that Captain Deadbolt is missing and then eveyone hears something on the roof. When Leo opens an attic window to find out what's going on, he's greeted by the sight of dozens of little robots, all armed with medieval weaponry. Leo and Casey get busy fighting the robots on the roof, while the others battle the invading machines downstairs. Our heroes win the skirmish in quick fashion, but are greeted on the front lawn by Doctor Dome in a giant robot that he dubs the Domebot.

Just then, Battling Bernice shows up and kicks the giant mechanical beast in the knee, shattering it and causing the machine to collapse. Bernice then kicks out the windshield of the robot and drags Doctor Dome out. As Battling Bernice holds Dome up by the collar and demands to know why the little villain is doing this, he explains that he wanted to bring her out of hiding, as he's been in love with her for 25 years and needed to see her again.

Bernice states that she isn't the original Battling Bernice, but her daughter Ananda. Ananda tells Dome that her mother passed away 3 years ago, and that he has ruined his life by allowing her mother's rejection of him to turn him into a villain (apparently Dome had been a member of the Justice Force until he had a falling out with Bernice). As Ananda chastises Doctor Dome, Stainless Steve interrupts and offers Doctor Dome a chance for redemption - Steve asks Dome to move into his estate, where they can try to heal old wounds. Doctor Dome agrees.
