Justice Force is the dramatically-named anti-metahuman
power-armor-wearing police force fielded by the Department of Justice
in 1965 in response to most local police force's inability to deal with
mutant crime. The public has seized on them as a symbol of "doing
something about" the "mutant question" with the result that they are
highly visible, beloved in the media, and the main outlet for
mainstream political anti-mutant rhetoric. Justice Force members are
typically recruited from the FBI's assault specialist divison, police
department SWAT teams and the military. Institutional prejudice
against metahumans is so pervasive that there is a fair degree of
suspicion of Justice Force by law enforcement watchdog groups, even if
their concerns get little to no media attention.
The power armor worn by Justice Force makes them more than a match for
many metahumans, and there are a wide variety of power armor
applications used by the team - assault, stealth, speed, and so on. In
addition, Justice Force possesses "drainer tanks", armored assault
vehicles capable of projecting a drainer field. When several of these
tanks are deployed, the field projected can be very powerful indeed.
Justice Force is organized by the Critical Incident
Response Group at the Federal Bureau
of Investigation under the Tactical Support
