Group 63 was founded in the aftermath of the public outcry against Project Galatea. The government had no choice but to shut project Galatea down. The Agency picked up the pieces however by buying the remaining equipment, hiring the same researchers and stealing the research data. Using their conncetions and resources they expanded the scope of the project and instead of trying to find a defense against rogue superheroes they actively started to hunt down anyone with superpowers. Although their initial approach was very aggressive they backed off when they noticed they were drawing attention to themselves. What exactly their goal is, remains unknown.
