VARTECH is the name of a shadow organization in the world of Champions Online MMO.
It is a shadow group that has bankrolled certain individuals and other organizations.
VARTECH has heavy influence in governments, including the United Nations. It is believed that VARTECH even allows Mayor Biselle to stay in office in Millennium City for as long as he wants, despite all the calls to have him step down or be subject to term limits.
VARTECH allows certain activities to happen because it benefits the members somehow. The Qularr Invasion that Galatea Future had an added benefit of bringing alien weaponry to Earth, including technology that allows one to negate superpowers. Harmon Industries were allowed to develop dimensional portal technology in clear defiance of UNTIL's Project Citadel. There is a reason more than just money why ARGENT has a monopoly on energy resources.
Those who make up VARTECH are supposedly the most powerful and influential men and women in the world. But they are also the ones that stay quiet and off-the-radar from the media. They don't do anything to expose their existence.
If you know who and what they are, then they allow you to know this, and you know that your continued existence is because they choose it.
