An alien force had infiltrated human society, searching for the remnants of a powerful weapon. These aliens possessed a great mental ability that allow them to remain undetected by the human heroes of Earth, but animals are able to bypass this and detect them. Meta-talented dogs Crymo the Stardog and Sirilock detected this threat and assembled a team of other heroes' pets to eliminate the alien invaders.
This team became The Legion of Pet Avengers (Pet Avengers + Legion of Super Pets).

Crymo the Stardog:
Amalgamation of: Cosmo the Spacedog + Krypto the Superdog
Biography: Back in the 1960s, the scientists for the USSR experimented with space travel. Before the famed Russian cosmonaut dog Laika, there was another dog they sent into space, in a cryogenic preservation capsule, to test suspended animation for interplanetary travel and colonization. The ship that carried the male dog was struck by a wave of energy that passed by Earth, sending it off course and it disappeared! The test was deemed a failure and the Russians erased evidence of it's experiment. The wave of energy was from the destruction of the planet Halaton (Hala + Krypton), which had traveled for 20 years at the speed of light; this energy was infused with the amalgamated genetic essence of the Kreetonians (Kree + Kryptonians), the dominant species of Halaton. The frozen dog was infused with the genes passed on by the energy. 40 years later, the heroic Super-Soldier (Captain America + Superman) was returning from a mission in space when he came across the inoperable shuttle. Inside he found a dog frozen inside a capsule labeled “Cryogenic Metaterra Operation Tube”, except the label had faded over time so the only letters he could read were C.R.Y.M.O. He took the dog back to Earth and discovered he could absorb yellow sunlight and convert it into superpowers, much like the Kreetonians, whose DNA make up the serum that gave Super-Soldier his powers. After staying in the hero's Fortress of Liberty, Crymo was given a specially-developed suit that allowed him to control his powers, and Crymo became a superhero in his own right: The Stardog!
Powers: Abilities of an average dog; telekinesis; superhuman strength/speed/stamina/agility/reflexes/senses/aim (though less than that of Super-Soldier); absorption of yellow solar energy and conversion of it into his powers; laser vision; x-ray vision; flight; use of a suit that allows him to control his powers and survive in space.
Amalgamation of: Old Lace the dinosaur + Rex the Wonder Dog
Biography: Gertrude Dennis (Gertrude Yorkes + Danny Dennis) hailed from the 87th Century, the daughter of two scientists who sought to exploit the planetary war for profit. They created a series of dinosaurs spliced with canine DNA. Gert felt sorry for the poor creatures and tried to free them, but was caught by her parent’s guards. A small, white-and-red-scaled T-Rex defended Gert and they escaped. Gert and her new friend, “Old Rex”, found an old time-travel device, created by the deceased villain Krangos (Kang + Chronos), to travel back to the 47th Century. There, they learned that a terrorist group called the Point, whose members included Gert’s ancestors, took over Earth in the 21st Century with demonic magic. She met up with her 21st Century ancestors, Stacy and Dale Dennis, claiming to be their long-lost niece. She gained their trust, and when the Point and their demon bosses tried to take control of Earth, Gert summoned Old Rex to attack the Point. Gertrude and Old Rex teamed up with the Point’s heroic super-children, and they later formed Runaway Justice (The Runaways + Young Justice).

Adopting the falcon (as both a persona and an actual falcon as a pet, naming him Redwing), Sam started work on a suit of powered armor and other tools, such as a sonic emitter that allows him to manipulate birds.

Owing payment to a wicked sorceress, Simona couldn't pay it off and suffered an eternal curse as punishment. Changed into a rabbit, Simona could no longer speak the language of her fellow Amazardians, yet her immortality persisted. Centuries later, she was found and named “Ophelia” by the princess of Themsgard, Thorana, also known as the chaampion Thunder Woman (Thor + Wonder Woman). The princess' kindness gave her the will to live, and when she was banished from Themsgard for disobeying the will of her father King Hippodin (Odin + Hippolyta), “Ophelia” swam the oceans to find her.
Ophelia came to the modern world and found Thorana, though she is now without her memories and with the mortal identity of Diana Blake (Donald Blake + Diana Prince). Diana, feeling some connection to the rabbit she found, adopted Ophelia. When Diana regained her memories and powers as Thunder Woman, it was during a battle with an alien force. A sliver of her enchanted armor broke off her during the battle and Ophelia seized it in her mouth; the sliver magically changed into a version of Thorana's armor for the rabbit, and she became the Thunder Bunny!
