A Brief Summary to the events of Season 1.
After it's formation in the late 19th century, the League was inducted into British Intelligence. A few years later, the League suffered major loses following the Martian invasion, when Skinner disappeared, Jekyll was killed in combat and Nemo left the league due to moral reasons.
The League continued, with the remaining members being joined by others and continuing operating for the crown. Both the League's numbers and scope of operations continued to grow, and it kept growing apart form MI6. Eventually, it was separated in 1944 under a directive from Winston Churchill. Two decades later, the League became separate from The British Government itself, as it became an Intelligence powerhouse notably flourishing during the cold war, with it's Headquarters in London, as well as seven main Branches, in Gotham City, New York City, Seoul, Cairo, Paris, Berlin and Caracas. As well as dozens of much smaller stations in most countries, not to mention research installations and secret prisons.
But as it so happens, power corrupts, and the more power and sway the League gained, the more self serving their goals turned and the more their methods veered morally. And so as we find ourselves in modern times, the League controls the world; it has squashed rebellions aimed to overthrow oppressive regimes, protected the corrupt and inflicted disease and suffering on mankind to attain more power through maintaining the status quo, holding mankind back and allow life of earth to remain mediocre.
But for every force, there is a counter-force, equal in power and opposite on the universal spectrum. And for the League with all its might and ruthlessness, there exists the opposition.
A coalition of like minded individuals bent on toppling the League, crippling it beyond restoration and relinquishing its tight grip of the human spirit, branded as terrorist by the League. Headed by four individuals the likes of whom the world has scarce known; Captain Nemo, still alive after a diabolical pact made early in the 20th century, one of the greatest mind in all three centuries he's lived during. Captain Barbossa; the world's last remaining old school pirate, who has lived, died and lived again, a man so wicked that hell itself has spat out. Captain Mason; the secret agent who knows about the world's secrets more than any man, who escaped from the prison thought to be insurmountable and survived what a dozen men half his age couldn't. Captain Raimus; courageous naval commander.
These four oversee a large number of Agents scattered around the world, monitoring the League and striking against them using guerilla warfare, Agents who are used to be spies, criminals, cutthroats, assassins and others.
But with all their resolve and determination, the opposition knows only little of Project Phoenix, the League's best kept secret, a Project so massive that it could mean the end of the world. And so, Captain Nemo hired two of the deadliest and most cunning people he could find to find the only man who can tell them what Phoenix really is.
But once he was found, the opposition was struck by the League, ostensibly in an operation orchestrated by Mina Jekyll herself, proving long standing suspicion of there being a traitor in their midst, wiping out entire cells of Agents as well as the League's intelligence gathering staff, perhaps crippling the opposition for good.
However, that remain to be seen as Nemo and the rest of the opposition are about to learn what Phoenix really is.
