The United Nations Global Defense Intelligence or the UN-GDI and formerly known as the Paranormal Division is the international paranormal agency and the anti-terrorist organization recognized by the United Nations and supported by the UN Security Council and the secret funding umbrella organization called the International Council Alliance.
The Agency provides the intelligence and carries missions to the Deadly Alliance since they've recruited them on December 21, 2012.
The Early DaysEdit
In November, 1945, after UN's first General Assembly has been completed, they created the Paranormal Division of the United Nations, a secret organization to protect the world from any dangerous threats; it was also meant for hunting down any remaining Nazi's super weapons and projects created by the SS.
The Cold WarEdit
After the Post-War missions are complete, the Division is now meant to protect the U.S. and the Western allies' nation from the Soviets. But in reality, they still protect the world from occults and supernatural threats. During the Cold War in 1950's, the Division has carried out their first Secret Missions, a classified covert operation that these missions for Search and Destroy, Sabotage, Rescue (even POWs), Assassination, Recon, Observation and Espionage, and they anticipated the Korean War, Iranian Coup in 1959 and Nicaraguan Coup.
On November 22nd, 1963, after the Assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Division has given order by President Lyndon Johnson to find and capture the assassin and they send their best investigators and agents. On the next day, the U.S. Department of Defense ordered the Division to infiltrate the underground complex within the city of Dash Vill City and uncover the suspicious activity over the violation of human rights law. Before the infiltration mission starts, Dash Ville City was struck by low-yield nuclear explosion, destroying the complex and the city itself in process. After the nuclear blast, they were sent to investigate the incident with the help of the National Guards and an team of UN expert on nuclear determination and uncover the remains of the nuclear rector down below the wreckage of the complex as well the one who responsible of holding the nuclear missile, killing the populations of the city. After the investigation, the mission was a success for clearing that the Soviets and Cubans were not the responsible for the action and the Private Company, Universal Vought, is finished for good.
During the 70’s, they supported the Forces of Justice for fighting international crimes of the Evil Organizations. During that time, they were secretly involved in Vietnam in 1973. They have given order by President Richard Nixon for eliminate the Soviet presence in Hanoi and in Laos by sabotage their bases. After the Vietnam War, they started to focus on the troubled tropical nation of the Republic of Bosque Isle. Having learned first about the danger of this mysterious super-weapon called the G.E.A.R, they informed the P.A.T.R.I.O.T, S.A.B.R.E and S.M.A.S.H for this impended threat and they agreed to work together to stop the warlord criminal and the dictator before they unleashed their nuclear superpower. The mission was a success by destroying the G.E.A.R but comes with a sacrifice to save the world.
In the 80’s, the Soviet Invasion in Afghanistan was just from the start in 1979 and they were planning to help the resistance but they have many Secret Missions to do. When the founder of the Division, Dr. Charles Lightson, was replaced by the hardened military commander, U.S. Lieutenant-General Marcus Xavier Lynnburg (better known as General X as his codename), the Division begins to worse; they were immediately to find and eliminate the international terrorist organization known as the Anarchy Rectum Group (or the ARG) all over the world, from South America to Europe to the Middle East to the U.S.S.R and China; even the Imperial State of Tairon and the Democratic People's Republic of Yongson. The hunt has become a wild goose chase until in 1985, he sent his assault forces into a suicide mission to raid the ARG main base in Libyan Desert and lost over 12,000 men and women including the ARG troops with total of 125,000 deaths into combined deaths of 137,000, killed by nuclear blast. Few people realized about General X's true ambitions, he was arrested for his reckless actions and the ambition of proving the ARG and the Dark Guild were real then later he's officially disavowed and Dr. Lightson has returned to his rightful place as the director of the Division. The Division can now focusing on Afghanistan, sabotaging their missile bases and disrupting forces from attacking the villages as well eliminating their aggressive paranormal forces. And with that successful missions, the Soviet Union is collapsed in 1991 after the Berlin Wall is torn down in 1989.
The Modern DaysEdit
From the Cold War to the Modern Days, the Division has been split into two when the new initiative was created by the CIA known as the T.A.S.K Force (Tactical Advance Special Kombat Force), specialized for Expendable Missions, Assassinations, blackmailing on rouge nations, corrupted politicians and factions and Assault Missions. During the Gulf, the Division and T.A.S.K Force worked together to take out Iraqi paranormal forces in Kuwait with the help of the U.S. army. After the Gulf War, Dr. Lightson was moved to the Paranormal Science Initiative and replaced by Director George Lynchburg and U.S. Secretary of Defense Paul Yanickski. UN Secretary-General of Defense, William Jefferson (the Deputy Director of his time), felt concerns about their activity of "putting our country first" but he got help from Colonel Jeff Warren Simmons. During the Yugoslav War, they have carried out their Secret Missions from Sarajevo to Serbia: recon the secret mass graves and massacre sites; disrupting their flow of weapons and troops; destroying their prototypes and WMDs; and assassinating the Serbian commanding officers in Belgrade. In 1999, the missions were success and Deputy Director Jefferson proposed the name change for the Division but Director Lynchburg denied the proposal and remained as the Division.
After the 9/11 Attack in New York City and the War on Terror has begun, President George Walker Bush gave the Executive Order to the Division to help U.S. and NATO Forces in Afghanistan by destroying the Taliban's weapons and bombs factory as well disrupting their defense and the abandoned missile base. In February, 2003, the Division sent their team of profession saboteurs and experts to eliminate the Iraqi Nuclear Power Plant in Baghdad. Next month after the successful Secret Mission, they anticipated the U.S.-led Invasion, assaulting enemy strongholds and capturing Saddam Hussain alive at his palace. Years after years until the Arab Spring broke out to the world's attention as United Arab Osman has turned into civil war as well in Libya. They supported and, officially, assisted the pro-democracy groups and overthrown the dictatorship for seven months. As for Syria, they helped the Free Syrian Army to sabotage their shelling in Homs, exposed the Syrian State Television's weakness by forcing to reveal the truth about massacres and assassinate the al-Assad factions' leaders.
After Osama Bin Laden's death, they're focusing on Pakistan which they believed the Al-Qaeda is somewhere in Northwest, deep within the Afghan-Pakistani border as well. While hunting down the Taliban's and Al-Qaeda's presence, they exposed and blackmailed corrupt politicians, including Yousaf Gilani, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, after they learned that he corrupt the government and related to well-known terrorist organizations. After Prime Minister Gilani is impeached and disposed by his exposed dirty secrets, the Division has raided the Taliban Stronghold in Northwestern Pakistan, Al-Qaeda Headquarter in Karachi and Haqqani Network is severely disrupted, ending the War on Terror for good of Democracy.
The Coming of the DragonsnakesEdit
On December 21, 2012, the Division was in seriously trouble when they needed help from superheroes sent by the UCV (Universal Consolidated Vought) to stop the secret alien invasion and preventing sabotages on their spy satellites. Dr. Lightson founds out that the Chaos Crystal is used as the resource for their project while it was unexpected used by the alien invaders. Then, the unexpected visitors known as the Deadly Alliance from another world were recruited for their extraordinary skills and appearances and asked them to stop the alien saboteurs from destroying the satellites in France. Then, after the mission was a success, they destroys the Chaos Crystal after they learned about the true impended threats from the alien invaders called the Monarchs. After the defeat of the alien invaders, the Division has become the United Nations Global Defense Intelligence, led by Chief Director William Jefferson, while ex-Director Lynchburg and his associates were arrested for their misguidance to the government, corruption, scandal and conspiracies and sentence to life in prison at the super max security prison without the possibility of bailout parol.
