History:

(Marvel Zombies Supreme#1 (fb)) - Dr. Mortimer Dauoi of Project: PEGASUS received the DNA codes generated as hard light by Dr. Spectrum of the Squadron Supreme of Earth-712. Dauoi grafted the DNA to medical cadavers and used Zeta rays (negatively charged energy) to reanimate the corpses, although the rays were amplified by the Zero energy from the discorporeal Jack of Hearts. Probably because of the refractive nature of Dr. Spectrum's Power Prism, the cadavers revived instead in a zombie-like and human-hungry state, soon overrunning the complex. These zombies had the appearance, powers and emotions of the original Squadron Supreme, but were overwhelmed by insatiable hunger. They evidently found costumes in the complex and took on the names of those whom they were cloned after. Nuke went after the nuclear waste facility at the complex.

(Marvel Zombies Supreme#1) - Battlestar and the Guardsman Alpha Team (Doc, Jill Harper, Hoss, Mainframe, Soapbox, Two-Ton) were called to investigate. The Whizzer clone spied them enter the complex. The Tom Thumb zombie attacked the soldiers but was destroyed. The Guardsmen found the surviving scientists, but the Nighthawk zombie clone arrived, and quickly bit and infected many of the scientists. The rest of the Squadron Supreme zombies arrived and a short fight ensued, but the humans escaped despite several casualties. Later, the Hyperion clone left behind the Nighthawk and the worried Power Princess zombies and dived into the magma pool beneath Project: PEGASUS to find new food sources. He emerged in Kansas.

(Marvel Zombies Supreme#2) - The Whizzer, Shape and Blue Eagle zombie clones found the humans and attacked. The Blue Eagle clone was sliced in half by Battlestar but continued driven by hunger. Power Princess caught up with them but Harper and Hoss barricaded themselves in the Zero energy chamber where Jack of Hearts rematerialized. Meanwhile, the Hyperion zombie had emerged in Kansas, killing many before being confronted by the state's Initiative team, the Harvesters. He quickly killed all except one before falling to tainted meat he had eaten.

(Marvel Zombies Supreme#3) - The remaining Squadron Supreme clones at the complex tried to break into the chamber. The Whizzer clone caught the Guardsman Soapbox, but was knocked out by an energy blast. The zombie Golden Archer tied his teeth to an arrow that he fired at Hoss, which began to slowly infect him with the zombie plague. Elsewhere, in West Vermont, Nuke emerged at a nuclear power plant and spread the zombie plague throughout the town, but everyone was incinerated by a nuclear bomb strike ordered by the mayor, Tom Aldrin. 

(Marvel Zombies Supreme#4) - The Nighthawk, Lady Lark, Shape, Power Princess and Golden Archer zombie clones pursued Harper, Hoss and Jack of Hearts. Hoss remained human enough to destroy the Golden Archer clone but his body was destroyed by the zombie Lady Lark. Elsewhere, Battlestar eliminated the Blue Eagle zombie while Soapbox dismembered the Amphibian clone using more energy blasts. The Lady Lark zombie mourned the loss of Golden Archer while the Power Princess zombie was knocked back by the booby-trapped head of Hoss. Shape cornered Harper and Jack of Hearts, swallowing Harper whole.

(Marvel Zombies Supreme#5) - In the upper section of Project: PEGASUS, the zombie clones of Power Princess and Whizzer spoke of having once been heroes, while the Nighthawk and Lady Lark zombies instead embraced the hunger, who then led the four to the exit. Meanwhile, Jack of Hearts rescued Harper, who recognized that his Zero energy blasts could destroy the zombies and Shape was eliminated. The two then went to the exit where the four remaining Squadron Supreme zombies were trying to leave amongst other zombies led by the mutated Dr. Dauoi, but they were held back by the surviving members of Guardsman Alpha Team and Battlestar. Nighthawk managed to bite Harper just before Jack of Hearts vanquished all the zombies with a Zero energy burst.

Anyone else wonder if there was a zombie clone of Dr. Spectrum...?

Although the names of the real members of the Squadron Supreme may have differed slightly, these are the names that the zombies adopted (see main image).

See the Handbooks for expanded info on the powers of the originals (who are close duplicates of DC's JLA).

As far as I know/recall, the Squadron Supreme members who stayed at PEGASUS were Dr. Spectrum, Haywire, Hyperion, Moonglow (Arcanna), Power Princess, Shape, Skylark, & Whizzer. So...where did they get the DNA for Amphibian, Blue Eagle, Golden Archer, Nighthawk, Nuke & Tom Thumb? --The latter five died in the Squadron Supreme “maxi-series,” and Amphibian quit and didn’t get back together with them until much later, in New World Order. Possibly just an error in the story. Obviously PEGASUS could have traveled to Earth-712 to get samples.
---Snood
    The flashback in the story shows only Spectrum, Whizzer, Hyperion, Shape, Power Princess and Lady Lark (Skylark) at Project: PEGASUS. The DNA was not taken directly from the SqSup, but rather from hard light constructs for all that were generated by Dr. Spectrum. So it's more of an issue of how much contact Spectrum had with the other originals that were later "cloned" by Dauoi.

Soon after, the Hyperion zombie dived into the magma pool in the installation's basement in an effort to escape and ensure an ample food supply for them.

(Marvel Zombies Supreme#2) - The Hyperion zombie emerged in the Kansas countryside, killing manyacross two counties. Smelling the tainted cattle on a Roxxon rig, he briefly overcame his ravenous hunger and recovered his heroic side, demolishing the truck and devouring the infected cows to eliminate them, but was confronted by the state's Initiative team, the Harvesters. He quickly ploughed through them, killing all but one before succumbing to the toxins in the beef.
