I'm not quite sure what you mean by "helped found the team" if he was not one of its early members. (I have read the Zero Hour-related story that first introduced us to Triumph, but it's been a heck of a long time and I don't remember it well.) Are you saying that he was part of a group effort against Appelaxians or something, but at the end of the group effort he wasn't one of the heroes who said, "You know, we ought to agree to make this a regular thing, so we can call each other for help when something really big comes up"? If that's approximately what happened, I wouldn't call him a founder.

Or are you thinking of something else?

The team broke up (Superman included) when Triumph and the aliens disappeared. If you include Triumph, you should include Superman as a founding member.

No one knew of (read: remembered) Triumph's involvement with the League until he escaped the other dimension (Limbo?) and contacted the League.

Triumph had no other adventures with the League until then.
