      I suspect most of what we know about them, other than Sabes, Scalphunter, Vertigo, and Malice, comes from Handbooks. None of their pasts have truly been delved into. They're pretty much ciphers. I think this fact actually served them well for their debut. They could mostly be seen as the monsters they were portrayed as, rather than real characters, but in the long run, it hurt them.

    On the other hand, would it really have been that interesting to delve into their pasts and backgrounds? They were/are heartless mass-murderers for hire, most readers probably would have seen that at worst as a feeble attempt to make excuses for the inexcusable, at best as irrelevant...

I'm not interested in making excuses for them. Indeed, there are none. Just make them more embellished villains capable of standing on their own.
