The United Nations created a special branch that would deal with the research of the surviving alien technology and to gradually release it to the public. It has resulted in a mission to Mars, electric cars, and other advancements.
But what the public does not know is that a secret agency was created to discover alien life upon Earth and either contain it, or eliminate it. ECLIPSE (Extraterrestrial Containment, Lunar & International Police, Special Enforcement). ECLIPSE's mission would be to track down any and all aliens upon or orbiting Earth, incarcerate them, study them, interrogate them. ECLIPSE was given access to alien technology far beyond anything other organizations might have access to, giving them the world's first teleporters. Agents also had access to powerful defenses, potent weapons, computer and stealth technology that made them ghosts. It was a shadow organization that within a few years gained an autonomy unparalleled. They made use of Earth's super heroes when necessary, although it was done seldom and in one way or another a hero was made ignorant of whom he had been working with or for; either the ECLIPSE agent would pose as an agent from another organization, or the hero's memory was changed.
Over time, the existence of ECLIPSE was
erased from computer banks. Physical files disappeared, key
memories were wiped. ECLIPSE existed completely in the
shadows until they were forced into the light after confrontations with
The Vindicators. Ultimately ECLIPSE was publicly exposed and
forced to disband, all of it's secrets divulged. Many members of
ECLIPSE were tried for various crimes, while others fled and are still
ECLIPSE had incarcerated quite a few
aliens in their various holding facilities around the world.
These aliens have since either left Earth or have relocated to Motor
|CRATER (Crisis Response Assault
Reinforcement): CRATER units were ECLIPSE's elite strike units, heavily
armed and encased in powerful suits of armor that (theorhetically)
take on any alien threat.
CRATER soldiers were recruited from elite fighting forces world wide. Navy SEALS, Russian SPETZNATZ, British SAS, Australian SASR, South Korean 707th, and others are the source of elite soldiers who are masters of combat, stealth, and tactical innovation.
CRATER units were comprised of a half dozen soldiers. Their armors provided them with enhanced strength as well as an advanced ceramic armor and force fields that afforded the wearers a modicum of protection. CRATER weapons varied from the conventional to equipment comparable to those used by the FPBI/BPA. CRATER armor possessed stealth capabilities second to none; when activated CRATERs became all but invisible to the naked eye as well as infra-red, radar and other sensors. The power usage was a bit high so CRATERs had to use the abilities sparingly.
