[Team Turmoil]
Members: Caliber, Rumble, Miasma, Wildside
Occupation: Mercenaries
Base of Operations: Keystone City, Kansas
First Appearance: Flash v.2 #86 (January 1994)

A quartet of super-powered mercenaries based in Keystone: Rumble is a giant. Miasma can fly and launch poison gas. Caliber is the team’s gunman. Wildside is a catlike woman with razor-sharp claws. The team is something of a joke, once described as “Thugs for hire for the mastermind on a budget.” When last seen they had picked up giant robot suits... and they still couldn’t last more than about four pages.

(Basically, if Mark Waid needed generic villains as a plot device, rather than a story, he used Team Turmoil.)
