The Executive Council is a joint superhero leadership council consisting of seven capes from different teams.
The Executive Council first appears in Not a Good Day to Be Empowered, when Empowered is called to testify before the Council regarding her theft of the Vorpal Sword from Object 524. They conclude that, due to her record of frequent kidnappings, her knowledge of how to access the stored alien superweapons poses an unacceptable risk to the safety of the planet. They vote 6-1 to place her in "protective custody", meaning imprisonment and cryogenic suspension in Glassbreak. Emp escapes due to the intervention of Manny, and later gets her sentence rescinded when she delivers proof that Object 524 has been destroyed.
