[quote]Here’s the basic setup: Almost every nation in the Marvel Universe secretly employs superhuman operatives to pursue its covert interests. And always has.
We’re aware of some of these groups: Secret Avengers and MI-13 spring to mind. We’re going to be meeting a lot more. These guys aren’t necessarily about saving the world, they’re about serving the interests of their own people, their own nations. Keeping the home flag flying high.
In our world this endless shadow-game is played using technology and intelligence. In the Marvel U? They have super humans.
Some stuff has happened. One event in particular – we’re calling it “the Alexandria incident” – which has shaken the international intelligence community to its roots. And mutantkind is bearing the brunt.
So Cable has been thinking. He’s realized that the only way mutantkind is going to survive is to start dealing with The Modern World on its terms. Mutants need to start thinking of themselves as a state – without borders, without government, without centralized rule, but still: a disparate country in its own right.
And for that? They need to start playing the shadow game. As Cable himself puts it: “Nation of mutantkind needs a dirty tricks department. We’re it.”[/quote]
