The Office of Secret Intelligence is a branch of the United States government that handles supervillain activity, both combatting groups of supervillains or assisting super scientists and superheroes with their Guild of Calamitous Intent-assigned archenemies. The remnants of the original group appear in "Now Museum, Now You Don't", but it is stated they still have some level of presence in the world of organized supervillainy alongside the "Peril Partnership". 20 years ago until its defeat in the Pyramid Wars of 1987. The Fraternity of Torment is one of a handful of supervillain organizations other than the Guild of Calamitous Intent. Brock left to join the Army during his Freshman year, and several tragedies befell the others, but it is unknown if any of them graduated. Professor Richard Impossible was also on the faculty, and shared an office with Fantomos, and taught at least one class attended by Thaddeus Venture. Girlfriend, Billy Quizboy, and the future Sally Impossible during the late eighties/early nineties). After escaping Guild custody later on, Phantom Limb teamed up with Richard Impossible to found the current Revenge Society, which has since had quick success in the field of villainy (though there are only six members) and they fail to kill Dr. The group has effectively been broken up as of "All this and Gargantua-2". In "All This and Gargantua-2", most of the Council of 13 is killed by the Sovereign as part of a gambit to draw out the Investors. Its founder is Phantom Limb, who initially created the society as his "team" to obtain the ORB for use against the Guild; however, this version of the Revenge Society was merely Phantom Limb himself along with a coffee mug named Wisdom, a toaster named Chuck, and a shoe called Lady Nightshade that he believed (possibly deludedly) were real people.
You're a tad shy, but when it comes down to it, you know exactly how to have a good time.
The current incarnation of the Guild (or at least its leadership) is implied to be a haven for missing and/or presumed deceased rock stars. A new, independent organization of villains set up primarily to oppose the Guild of Calamitous Intent; as such, a number of its members have had unpleasant dealings with the Guild in the past.
It is led by a mysterious figure known only as "The Sovereign" (thought to be David Bowie, but later revealed to be a nameless shapeshifter), and a group of villains called the Council of Thirteen. The Guild then split over how to use the ORB, with Fantomas founding the Guild of Calamitous Intent (who wanted to use the ORB to control mankind) while Lloyd founded the modern version of the OSI (who wanted to use the ORB to help mankind).
Team Venture comprises the central characters in the show; they live in a fortified compound in or near Colorado Springs, Colorado in the United States. The group was largely made up of disenfranchised men shunned by society for their various physical defects. who were disillusioned with its ineffectual bureaucracy decided take up the S.
The compound doubles as the headquarters for the company, "Venture Industries". They were frequently the antagonists to Team Venture during the 1960s, and it is shown that Jonas and his team often seemed to merely be tormenting and bullying them for fun rather than fighting them out of any sense of justice.
