The people on this list, all Alpha Superiors, would band themselves together initially for mutual safety, but after realizing that they were greater than the sum of their parts, they decided fight back and became known as Team Zodiac.

Once this was done, Alphas once more were able to come out of hiding.
The new Age of the Alphas had begun.
