First Appearance: Marvel Comics Presents I#167/3 (early November, 1994)
At some point a street gang of Vengeance worshippers became part of a plan of Michael Clemson and Reverend Nice to ruin the public view on super humans through Vengeance. They were given drugs that increased their strength and ability to take punishment, but also warped their minds and hideously transformed them.
(Marvel Comics Presents I#167/3) - The Revengers brought havoc to the streets of L.A. with their flame throwers and waged war against the War Machines. The Paranormal Law Enforcement Team around Badilino, Buchanan and Taylor interfered into their fight against the War Machines. Buchanan shot one of them and learned that they were not mystical. The beaten Revenger activated something and became bigger and stronger than before. The others did this, too and defeated their opponents with their newfound power. They wanted to kill their fallen enemies in the name of Vengeance, but Badilino became Vengeance to stop them. They kneeled before him, but thought that he was an imposter when he didn't act violently and kill their unworthy bodies with his hellfire. Suddenly War Machine attacked Vengeance and a brutal fight between them began. Now the Revengers saw the Vengeance they worshipped and they were happy.
(Marvel Comics Presents I#168/3) - Praying for a win of their role model, the Revengers watched the fight between Vengeance and War Machine. Taylor dragged a beaten Revenger into an alley and removed his mask. She was shocked about what she saw.
(Marvel Comics Presents I#169/3) - The Revengers attacked War Machine after he buried Vengeance under rubble. Taylor showed Buchanan the truth behind the Revengers. War Machine was held by the Revengers to give Vengeance the chance to kill him, but Vengeance didn't want this. Uno and the other air units threw gas down into the fighting area. The Revengers lost consciousness and were defeated.
(Marvel Comics Presents I#170/3) - The beaten Revengers were collected by the Paranormal Law Enforcement Team and brought into custody.

It was never mentioned, but the equipment and the drugs were probably given to the Revengers by Michael Clemson.
