A Golden Age super-hero team published by DC Comics.

After the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor which plunged the United States into World War II, Franklin D. Roosevelt put a call out to all of the super-heroes of the time (then known as "mystery men" to band together in defense of their country. The call was answered by the members of the Justice Society of America which was called the Justice Battalion during the war, as well as the members of the Law's Legionnaires. Other unaffiliated heroes also joined and this new group was dubbed the All-Star Squadron.

The group met in the Perishere in New York City that was built for the 1939 - 1940 World's Fair. In the opening meeting, Hawkman was elected chairman. He later stepped down and Liberty Belle was then elected as permanent chairwoman. For a time, both Hawkman and Liberty Belle served as co-chairpersons.
