The first Ten was originally one of four childhood friends of Amos Fortune. As an adult, the super-villain brought the four of them together again, dressed them up as a Royal Flush of Clubs with Fortune as the Ace and leader, and and was empowered them with "Stellaration" for luck. The team was defeated by the original Justice League of America. Later, a new Ace became the leader of the Gang, changing their symbols from from Clubs to Spades. Unfortunately, they crossed paths with the Joker, after which the team disbanded. He has not been seen since.
