The Vindicators are a superhero team who made their first appearance in Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender. The team’s archnemesis is The Worldender. They recruited Rick and Morty to help them once before but later neglected to summon them for the second adventure due to “personality conflicts”. This resulted in them destroying a planet in order to defeat an enemy known as “Doom-nomitron”, a situation Rick could have prevented if he were there.
Nearly all of them are killed when Rick Sanchez, in a fit of drunken jealousy and contempt, sets up a Saw-style gauntlet to prove that the team is nothing but a bunch of hacks who aren’t as unique or great as they think they are, causing most of the team to either die to Rick’s traps, or kill each other when tensions and inner turmoil turn them against each other.
