AIM stands for Aberration Investigation and Mitigation. They are a federal agency whose primary mission is to study and watch aberrations. Law requires that AIM agents collaborate on cases that deal with known aberrations. AIM maintains an aberration registry. Failure to register carries a $10,000 penalty and up to three months jail time. Failure to register and committing a crime carries an additional $50,000 fine and up to 10 years extra jail time.
AIM agents deal with the most bizarre of all abnormals, abberations. They must be able to deal with the strangest, most frightening situations, and their training and equipment reflect this.
AIM agents are mostly human, but a staggering 40% of field agents are prodigies, mutants, or in some rare cases, aberrations.
AIM agents are given a tremendous amount of autonomy in the field, including the ability to “deputize” non agents in emergency situations.
