As an entity fueled by research and development, eXcalibur does not require a cover to operate. While conflict may happen due to competing interests over items they seek to secure, the team does not actively look to engage in covert or paramilitary operations.
WHAT DO THEY DO?
Research & Development
Object Retrieval / Recovery
Storage of Items of Power
Team consulting / expert advice
WHAT DON’T THEY DO?
Fight demon invasions
Recon or infantry support
Assassinations / spy stuff
Mutant Underground support
SO, THEY’RE SWORD?
Nope, they’re not SWORD (Or SHIELD or WHO or Black Air or WAND or another other official agency. Hell, they aren’t even an acronym.). However, thanks to its connections to SWORD, SHIELD, Asgard, Atlantis, and X-Force, it’s possible for eXcalibur to retrieve highly dangerous artifacts, contain them, and then hand them off to people who are better equipped to deal with items of Power.
