Origin

Originally a group brilliant scientists working for HYDRA during World War II, they like their leaders went into hiding after the war.


Resurfacing as an overt cartel dealing with the development and marking of new technologies catering to the governments of the world - their true motivations were unknown - the overthrow of those same governments.

Eventually their motivations were exposed by Colonel Nick Fury and his agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but they once again went underground to strike at the world as the scientists of A.I.M.
