VIPER

VIPER is currently best known as a series of cover organizations.

Fortunately, someone over at the Atomic Think Tank did a writeup of various VIPER agents, so I don’t have to. Or this guy did one

However, VIPER still prefers to hire supervillains or create them itself. (They alternate..some days they say, “Hey, hiring gives us deniability if we use cut-outs” and other days they say, “Those damned mercenaries are never faithful.”)

There’s probably a reunion for ex-VIPER mercenaries and supervillains, and they probably surreptitiously invite the morally-neutral heroes because they know that VIPER is going to attack.
