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.
Later, Jock one of the Little Wise is brutally murdered by Dart and the rest of the Wise are kidnapped. However, they are quickly saved by Daredevil. A bit later, P.J whose parents die due to a super freak attack joins the Little Wise Guys and takes Jock’s spot. It is soon discovered that all the Little Wise Guys do no age from a blood test done on Peewee. Peewee does a blood pact with P.J. and it is assumed that P.J. will no longer age as well.
Later, when the Claw returns from the dead, it is the Little Wise Guys who have to break the news to Daredevil that his arch nemesis is once again among the living. Later during a meeting betweent the Little Wise Guys, Daredevil, and Malcolm, Dart overhears them mention that their blood makes them immortal. Dart kidnaps all of the Little Wise Guys, minus P.J. and murders them all brutally for their blood.
