The Little Wise Guys were the schoolboy companions of World War II costumed hero Daredevil. They assisted their guardian on numerous missions over the years and it was on one of these adventures that the group were abducted by Solar Man. This hero was desperate to increase his power levels and so he captured many of his peers and locked them away in a device hidden within his Citadel of Seclusion headquarters. This chamber converted its occupants into energy that then fed Solar Man, augmenting his abilities.
It was not until around sixty years later that Rex Dexter released this army of Golden Age heroes from their prison as he sought to find a method to defeat Solar Man. Unaware that his power levels were back down to normal, Solar Man fought against Dragon and some of his allies which resulted in his death.
The United States Government set about relocating the numerous Golden Age heroes to cities around the country. Daredevil was assigned Chicago and he took the Little Wise Guys with him. They were instrumental in locating Dragon’s children when they were kidnapped by the Vicious Circle. This led to a working relationship between Dragon and Daredevil as well as a friendship between the Little Wise Guys and Dragon’s kids.
When the new Dart was injured during a fight with Dragon she ended up getting washed out into sewage water. Dart was discovered by Daredevil and the Little Wise Guys who took her to their clubhouse so that she could recover, the villain pretending that she had no recollection of her past life. Jock stayed home from school to take care of Dart one day and stumbled across her true identity. Dart reacted instantly by brutally killing the youngster and disposing of his corpse.
