Depending on your perspective, exactly when they officially formed as a team is open to speculation and interpretation. As early as 2009, Skysweeper already had very definitive plans for the structure and workings of the team. This included a particular roster of members, along with possible team names, a base of operations, and financial backing.
If he had gotten a full group of six, he planned to use the name "The Reflex 6." If not he had a fall back name of "Firewall." One person he definitely wanted on his team was Astra Furst.
