This was my version of SHIELD for a Marvel Halloween campaign I ran every year with a post-apocalyptic fallen medieval society that found mutations, folklore, and artifacts jumbled in with feudalist structures.

Great message thread.
The only neat acronym that has come up in my campagin so far is:

A.M.I.S.S. = Anti-Mutant Incursion, Special Squad
I based them on the Ghostbusters as a N.Y.P.D. unit. Got a big laugh from the players, to see four guys in coveralls toting Proton-Packs who were clearly out of their depths when they were called to stop them.

Yes, I said stop them. At the time the Player Characters were considered vigilantes and were wanted by the authorities.

Marvel used the same gag when the GB movie ad come out.

One thing I forgot to mention is that there are several other special task forces implemented as part of the extended United Nations mandate.

One such rumored Task Foce (although never proven) is:

For my setting, the only major alphabet organizations currently operating are R.E.A.C.T. (Regional Executive Agency for Counter-Terrorism) and the reformed C.A.B.A.L. (Chaos, Assault, Bloodshed, Assassination, and Larceny). R.E.A.C.T. was created shortly after Lord Lukifell made his first attempt at world conquest. Four years ago, Lord Lukifell sponsored an internal coup de etat that forced the Kabuki from his leadership of C.A.B.A.L. With Lukifell taking over and returning the organization back to it's WWII Axis agenda.

I was a guest player in a Champions game some years back. It was an ongoing campaign and had this as an organization. Even had buisness cards made up with it's name.

United States Emergency Law Enforcement Special Services

It might have been Secret Service, I lost the card some time back.

I'll let you folks spell it out yourselves. :D

I already mentioned this on another thread, but it fits here too.

I once designed an SF campaign universe in which the main interstellar powers were:

the United Systems, and

the Terran Hegemony / Empire of Man.

The campaign was to revolve around the conflict between US and THEM. :)
