MI13 - Intelligence and Wisdom
The Federal Bureau of Investigation’s broad jurisdiction over 200 different federal crimes throughout United States territory often brings it into contact with superheroes (and conflict with supervillains). Though it sometimes squabbles with PRIMUS over these matters (the Bureau still hasn’t gotten over having primary responsibility for supercrime taken away from it in 1986), it usually makes positive contributions to efforts to stop supervillains. Its forensics labs, the best in the world, frequently analyze evidence from supercrime sites.
The FBI’s current director, former CIA agent and US Attorney Hamilton Parks, is a good friend of Andrew Rochester’s and shares the DOSPA Secretary’s opinion of superhumans. Since being appointed by President Clinton in 1996, Parks has expanded the Bureau’s roster of superheroes. It now employs eight: Tarantula and Firebrand, stationed in New York City; Kodiak and Teknique, stationed in Millennium City; Stalwart, who works with the Hostage Rescue Teams; and three — Bellatrix, Insight, and Proton — who shuttle around the country as needed. Insight, with his psionic powers, frequently performs telepathic scans of applicants for sanction or certain types of suspects.
