Heroes of Freedom City
The United Nations International Superhuman Oversight Network, or UNISON, is the world’s front line against supervillains. In the United States, AEGIS (AMERICAN ELITE GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION SERVICE) gets all of the press, but in the far corners of the globe, it’s UNISON that takes the risks, putting their lives on the line against supervillains, often without well-stocked arsenals and bases (or even a good medic) at their disposal.
Today, UNISON has something of a split personality. Because its objectives vary depending on the part of the globe in which they are operating, UNISON is much more aggressive in areas of the world that don’t have a strong military presence or central authority. Elsewhere, they are investigators who deal with international threats like VIPER or Terror Inc. Their record is excellent; however, they are under intense scrutiny from many quarters.
Viper has proven a major source of frustration. UNISON has broken up numerous small cells and stopped dozens of plots, but they have failed to hit the leadership of the organization or discover the secret behind their funding. Years ago, Jennifer Ellis figured VIPER had to have a powerful player in the world scene supplying it with goods and intelligence. After a long investigation, Ellis has ruled out major world government backing, but has no clues, except for the possibility of .a connection with Dr. Sin, or some other master villain Defeating VIPER has almost become an obsession with her.
