AEGIS or the American Elite Government Intervention Service is the US government military branch established in 1942 to deal with superhuman and paranormal threats to public and national safety.
AEGIS is a branch of the United States Armed Forces;and one of the country's eight uniformed services. The American Elite Government Intervention Service is a military, multi-mission service unique among the U.S. military branches for having a domestic law enforcement mission (with jurisdiction in all 50 states) and a regulatory agency mission as part of its mission set. It operates under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and can be transferred to the U.S. Department of the Army U.S. President at any time, or by the U.S. Congress during times of war. It has special regulatory authority to treat modified or super human Americans that are suspected of breaking federal, state and local laws as terrorists and enemies of the country.
Often times AEGIS works with known super heroes as support and intelligence gathering, letting costumed heroes engage villains with the generally unmodified members of AEGIS handle evacuations, crowd control and coordination with local law enforcement.
