United Nations Tribunal on International Law
The United Nations Tribunal on International Law or U.N.T.I.L. is an official branch of the United Nations in the world of Champions Online.
U.N.T.I.L. has served as the global police force since the 1960's, often dealing with alien threats, monsters, high-ranking supervillains, or ruthless terrorist organizations determined to rule the world (of course).
U.N.T.I.L. is considered the highest authority when it comes to superhuman matters. There is no authority higher. Even the members of the United Nations Security Council have in the past deferred to U.N.T.I.L. leadership when it comes to making crucial decisions, especially in the face of global catastrophe.
Technically the Secretary-Marshall of U.N.T.I.L. answers to and is appointed by the U.N. Secretary-General. Underneath that position is the U.N.T.I.L. Director of Technical Corps. It is said that whomever holds that position is being groomed to be the next Secretary-Marshall.
U.N.T.I.L. claims jurisdiction over land, sea, air, undersea, and near-space. In addition to their sizable global military might on loan from the member countries, they also have the orbital space station GATEWAY to monitor extra-terrestrial threats, and plans for three more stations.
There are several divisions and subdivisions in U.N.T.I.L. which handle specific threats.
