Do you have what it takes to protect your country?
Soon after the Second Storm, The U.S. Government decided to put together a rapid-response team to deal with metahuman threats to the country. Many soldiers who’d been exposed to the storm had developed powers of their own, and the military immediately put them to use.
Led by The American, the group became a symbol for American power in the world. Based in D.C., the group is quickly sent to any part of the country that is under metahuman attack. However, the group has also been used in military actions outside the country, for protecting America’s interests, of course.
While some people argue that the Minute Men are a dangerous force for any government to have, they also admit that the world’s current state makes them needed.
