AEGIS

The American Elite Government Intervention Service (or AEGIS) is a government organization established in 1961. The agency oversees federal law enforcement and threats to national security specifically involving super-humans.

The organization became rather infamous in the 80s, when the Moore Act in Freedom City outlawed costumed vigilantes. Since AEGIS was a government organization, it’s agents (including the super-human ones) were exempt from the Moore Act. This put them at odds with the vigilantes who remained active during the implementation of the Moore Act. For some, this is water under the bridge. For others on both sides, the tension of this time period still runs hot.

Until 1990, the director of AEGIS was the former Patriot, Jack Simmons. Upon his retirement in 1990, control of the organization was transferred to Horatio “Harry” Powers, an AEGIS agent who became famous in the 80’s for stopping the horrific Gemini Killer.
