The Mutant Commission Office is a non-governmental international organization which has police powers specifically granted by charter in different countries. Some countries, e.g. Karedonia, do not allow the MCO to operate at all.

Approximately a quarter of the MCO's budget is contributed by the Goodkind family.

MCO dropships and power armor are powder-blue.[1]


Main article: History of the Mutant Commission Office

The MCO was founded in 1964, in part as a reaction to the activities of various mutant supremacy groups, and was originally envisioned as focusing on scientific research and liaison functions similar to those of Interpol. It grew into a more active role over the 70s and gained considerable powers following events of the 90s such as the Fools Fight.

The MCO issues Mutant Identification Cards, which function as travel documents in place of passports and are by international law required for mutants crossing borders. Beyond biometric data they include details of the mutant's power and are color coded for the holders legal status.


Current Activities (U.S.)[]

The MCO has an extremely mixed reputation. It's regarded as protecting against the "mutant threat" by a very large number of people. However, it's also got the reputation of having "disappeared" a large number of young mutants, such as Sandra Kwan.[4][5]

Current Activities (Gen1 India)[]

“Vicious. And Ruthless. And quite efficient. And they have the support of the Government and the average citizen.” - Kaiju [6]


The MCO has their own teams of superbeings, known as "Shepherds." They are given bleeding-edge power suits to augment their natural abilities. Some believe that those suits are too dangerous and unstable, but that the MCO still fields them because they don't place the safety of their superpowered personnel as a high priority.[7]

Field Offices[]

The MCO has field offices scattered in various places.


The MCO maintains offices in downtown Berlin, New Hampshire, presumably due to the proximity to Whateley Academy rather than all towns of that size warranting an office of their own.[8]


New York[]

The MCO office in NYC is the largest on the planet, even bigger than the head office. The New York City office of the MCO is regarded as 'neutral' or possibly 'slightly pro-mutant' by the MCO as a whole. The NYC MCO office has so many field teams that they have to have several Field supervisors plus a Head Field Supervisor. The NYC MCO office is so active that they have *several* Assistant Directors.[10] The MCO office in NYC is so large it is spread between two buildings, with underground areas connecting the two.[11]




Len Rowan[]

Agent on airline screening duty. He's the Bad Cop, and screws up big time. End of career[15]

Daisy Hawking[]

Len's partner. His screwup suggests a cunning plan to advance her career. At the end, she's hauled off in handcuffs.[15]

Los Angeles[]

Several agents have appeared on-camera, but the only name mentioned was "Ross".[4]



  • Agent Haines[7]


Chicago's Field Office seems to more mutant neutral. Interested in following the meaning of the laws and regulation. They seem to have several buildings; the powers testing facility is separate.[16]


Dallas/Forth Worth[]

Texas (along with Georgia, Kansas, and the Carolinas) passed laws forbidding foreign-controlled Law enforcement agencies from appointing non-residents of the states as directors for their offices. Texas also locked out hiring people from known hate groups, and restricting actual agent-enforcement personnel to state residents hired locally. They also made it a mandate that all management personnel be drawn from local and federal Law enforcement. (It is unknown if any other states have the other regulations.)[18]

Duluth, Minnesota[]

The testing site was a nondescript brick building adjacent to the University of Minnesota-Duluth campus. Apparently the Duluth MCO office was fairly small space leased from the university.[19]
Duluth isn’t a large office, so they don’t have someone on staff that is qualified to test potential magic users.[19]

They had local mages do it instead. Well, just Carrie Running Elk, as of some time in presumably 2007.[19]

Taos, New Mexico[]

Info on its state as of some time in 2006 or so.

[Ricardo Navarro was killed by] a Humanity First member in the MCO that attended service [at Ricardo's mother's church]. [There were] mysterious disappearances, all linked to that office. Nearly the entire staff was complicit in the execution and cover-up of various crimes.[20]

Isobel Navarro discovered this and presumably had the office cleaned of the corrupt members. She then "resigned from the [Federal Bureau of Investigation] and applied to the MCO and was assigned to assist the new office chief." After six months, at some point in the first five months of 2007, "she was offered the position of head of the Duluth office" and she took it, moving and leaving the office.[20]

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania[]

Manila, Philippines[]

As far as [Carlos Jefferson] knew, the only other MCO office on the planet with more than one Assistant Director was Manila, which had two. But the Manila office had to handle the entirety of the Philippines plus a vast expanse of surrounding ocean, which was one hell of a lot of area to cover.[10]



  1. Her family was in Duluth by Monday, May 28, 2007, but has been working in the city long enough for her daughter, Lamprey, a.k.a Liabella Estrella Navarro, to "[gain] a reputation in her new city".
