VOICE

(Vanguard Organization for International Crime and Espionage, or so some sources say) This mysterious organization seems devoted to inducting international criminals of the nastier sort into an elite force of super powered killers. The ultimate motivation of the group is unknown, as is its leader. An elderly Chinese martial artist called Lung Hung (Red Dragon) is often their field commander. Most of their recruiting of agents seems to take place amongst the Oriental communities of cities all over the world. Most heroes run into VOICE when they are having their try-outs. This generally means that VOICE is recruiting and they are taking the villains who do the best job of eliminating superheroes. "VOICE is recruiting in your town" is not something any super team wants to hear.

Besides the superpowered group (sometimes called the Jaws), VOICE employs extensive groups of agents and researchers.
