Welcome to the Encyclopedia Galactica. The aim of the encyclopedia is to provide readers with the information they need to navigate the rich lore of The Squadron Supreme.
First published in 1981, Champions was the first book in a series of role-playing game titles that described the often dangerous world of The Champions, a super-hero group operating out of Millennium City, Michigan. The lore of the Champions universe has expanded to include not only other cities but also far-off places like Atlantis and has peered into a thousand years into the future.
But, what does any of this have to do with The Squadron Supreme?
Squadron lore has its roots firmly in that of the Champions universe but it occasionally diverges from what can be found in existing Champions role-playing material. Hence, the need for this encyclopedia. Whenever information found in The Squadron Chronicles extends or revises existing lore, an entry will be made.
As such, the reader should remember the following caveat: the encyclopedia may at times disagree with information that has previously been printed in Champions role-playing material. The reader is free to ignore these discrepancies if so desired.
Finally, I would like to thank all the many creative people that have contributed to the creation of the Champions universe. Without them, there would be no Squadron.
