Syndicate is a team of premier heroes from the Foundry and the stars of the eponymous animated series, Syndicate. The team was founded by Mage, Nozus, Collector, Bagel, Saint and Web, but Wario and Erin were later added.
Apart from Nozus, the original members of Syndicate had been collaborating years prior to them grouping together. The earliest interaction occurred between Mage and Collector, the latter later introducing Mage to Bagel in The Bagel Show, where Saint also debuted (albeit as an antagonist). Mage, Collector, and Saint reappeared in Bandit Territory, which featured the return of Squad Æ's Web and had Saint make a heel-face turn.
