Earth Ω

Battlewatch

Under the authority and supervision of the United Nations, the Department for Observation of Global Meta Activities (D.O.G.M.A.) monitors the operations of governmental sanctioned superheros across the globe and dispatches their own group "Battle Watch" in case of need to actively intervene in conflict areas or crisis between countries that were triggered or exacerbated by the use of super beings.

"Battle Watch" consists of two teams, each composed of delegates of the G8 (Team Alpha) and the G5 (Team Beta) countries.

B.A.S.T.A.R.D.S.

As the Navy counterpart to "O.M.E.G.A. Force", the Navy Seals Team "Bastards" (Biological Advanced Special Tactics and Actions Reconnaissance and Defense Service) is part of the Naval Special Warfare Development Group and under the operational control of JSOC. Its primary tasks are counter-terrorism, direct action, and national intervention operations whenever metahumans are involved. They are also capable of conducting many types of clandestine missions, including, but not limited to, hostage rescues and raids.

O.M.E.G.A. Force

The 1st Special Forces Operational Metahuman Enforcement Group (Airborne) (1st SFOMEGA), popularly known as Omega Force, is a U.S. Army component of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Little is known about this unit, as it is still subject to confidentiality, but Omega Force's primary tasks are counter-terrorism, direct action, and national intervention operations whenever metahumans are involved, although it is an extremely versatile group capable of many types of clandestine missions, including, but not limited to, hostage rescues and raids.

Team Vanguard

When in 2012 on December 21 the Harvester spaceship "Bolon Yokte' K'uh" appeared in Earth's atmosphere, a strange object, storaged in a warehouse since the late 1940's, was suddenly activated and formed multiple tiny wormholes in it's vicinity before it could be shut down. After the victory over the Croa'to'an, the army founded a research operation which managed to penetrate into alternative or parallel realities and dimensions. In order to research and catalog the newly discovered realities, a team of military personnel with both superhuman abilities and expertise in different fields of scientific knowledge was formed. These daring researchers are known as "Team Vanguard"...

The Guardians

The Guardians are an elite group of superheroes created by the European Super-Soldier Initiative (ESSI) to combat the growing risk of the european countries being attacked by metahumans and to serve the Europe Union Parlament as part of its "police" force in the War on Terror across Europe.

Under the authority and supervision of the European Union, the Guardians monitor and evaluate potential superhuman threats and take uncompromising action when metahumans start to pose a danger to the member states or cause intergovernmental conflicts.

Bogatyri

The Bogatyri (Богатырь = "warriors") are a group of metahumans fighting for the restructuring of the Soviet system back to the "glory" days of Stalin.

Freedom Warriors

When the Chinese government wanted a team of state-sanctioned superheroes at their disposal to protect China, a top-secret consortium of high-ranking politicians known as the "Bureau" was formed to recruit and train the country's most powerful metahumans as operatives for "Zì​yóu Zhàn​shì (自由战士)", The Freedom Warriors.

Renegades

When the defeated Harvester fled from earth, they left behind about 240 aliens from 19 different enslaved species who now were homeless and viewed by humans with some mistrust. Together those alien refugees founded in the center of terraformed Greenland a sanctuary for all stranded aliens as well as the surviving original inhabitants and called their city "New Eden".

But for some of those aliens having a new (patchwork) home wasn't enough. They wanted revenge for the years of brutal enslavement and the devastation of their civilisations through the Harvester.

Savage Pack

The Savage Pack is Australias official, governmental sanctioned, superhero-team.

Ultrapower Mega Heroes

The Ultrapower Mega Heroes are a group of superheroes which are sanctioned by the Japanese government and supported by a top-secret consortium of business entities in their quest to protect Japan and especially Tokyo from all threats.

The Vandals

The Vandals are a group of anarchists from around the world fighting to bring down any and all governments in order to bring "peace" to humankind since it's their opinion that nationalism is an outmoded concept which tends to promote rivalry and injustice between nations. (Maybe they're on to something here...?!)

Zodiac

After the end of World War Ω new conflicts between previously allied governments arose all around the world, when they pounced on the left behind technology of the Harvester and claimed them as spoils of war for themselves. In order to investigate and exploit the alien technology for military and commercial use, contracts were awarded to local high-tech companies which soon led to outright turf wars between competing companies. One such company is the corporate giant known as "AstroCorp", who seeks to protect itself against business rivals by forming their own teams of super-powered mercenaries. As an innuendo to the company's name they hire a team of twelve supers based on the Western Zodiac theme and put them in charge of defending the corporation and its employees.
