The Gentlemen of Science
As the Junior Jet City Defenders traveled through time they met several people of the past that would later become famous icons of history. Among the many people that they came across were three particularly noteworthy individuals that referred to themselves as The Gentlemen of Science. When encountered, they were hunting, studying, and categorizing some of the more amazing discoveries that the prehistoric wilderness had to offer, but were in turmoil due to the absence of a special friend.
The Gentlemen of Science was the umbrella of intellectual comradery that brought Jules Verne (age 52), H.G. Wells (age 64), and Nicola Tesla (age 27) together in a singular pursuit, the gathering of knowledge. Each of them went by assumed names, Mr. Nautilus, Mr. Moreau, and Mr. Lightning respectively. With Tesla’s Tesla Time Sled at their disposal, they were capable of hopping about time in order to chase a childhood dream that each of them shared. While it was not clear if they truly considered themselves to be superhuman or just intellectually gifted, it was clear to the party that they were extraordinary in their own right, parahuman capability aside.
Travelling with them was the young Henry Verne whom had misplaced his sidekick, Herotodus. It did not take long for the group to help them hunt the dog down, and afterward the two groups were able to discuss the strange situation that each had found each other in. Although AID was skeptical when it came to discussing the problems the team was having with time travel, it felt necessary for the young group to take what advise they could from the older and wiser chronographers.
