The Assembly is an official umbrella organization for meta persons acting in a heroic capacity. It was founded by the members of several North American and European teams on September 20th, 1983 in Questing, NY, USA. The organization was created with the backing of over a dozen national governments for the joint goals of meta person responsibility, government sponsored damage coverage, and to counteract the growing number of well organized state sponsored meta persons in the Soviet Union and China.
It gradually grew into a global organization with the non-military mission of counteracting any negative use of powers. After the collapse of the Soviet Union the Assembly became the primary organization in all major countries aside from China, which remains the lone holdout that is of significant population.
