What is WASP?

This About, Characters entry posted at 8:20 PM on March 30, 2006

The World Alliance for Scientific Progression is an international paramilitary organization that specializes in the study, apprehension, and detention of all superhumans regardless of power-origin (scientific, extra-terrestrial, mystical, etc.).

As per their doctrine, no WASP member has any super-powers or magical abilities. They rely on their large membership and the highest level of technology to pursue their goals. Their current agenda seems to be based on keeping the human race free from superhuman influence, whether "curing" super-mutations, bringing super-villains and super-vigilantes to justice, or diminishing the impact of super-powered adventurers within a political arena.

WASP often finds themselves at odds with various super-groups around the world, from both the "hero" and "villain." side of the ethical fence. Their most prominent enemies include UNIONS, the World Espionage Bureau, and the FREE Association.

WASP first appeared in Local Heroes strip #44 (within Storyline 2 — “Anger is as a Stone Cast into a Wasp's Nest”).
