Agents of STRIKE
Alchemax Genetics is a New York-based research company that is working on human augmentation and enhancement. Not content with simply developing pharmaceuticals and medical treatment, Alchemax’s goals are expressly focused on improvement beyond the norm. They are a DARPA contractor, working on next-generation Super-Soldier programs.
SHIELD is monitoring Alchemax closely, and has agents currently working inside the company to keep an eye on their developments. Currently, they have not had any actual successes in terms of consistently reproducing any extranormal results in humans, but they still have ongoing projects that may bear fruit.
Right now SHIELD’s official policy with Alchemax is “observe and report”. They are not violating any current laws against human experimentation, although President Gordon Wright is promising to tighten such laws and possibly introduce new ones regarding extranormals, which may make the very existence of companies like Alchemax illegal.
