Marvel Universe

When the Mutant Registration Act made its way through Congress, the former mercenary group known as Mutant Force reorganized as the Resistants, openly opposing the Act through marches, demonstrations and, on occasion, criminal actions. The original Resistants recruited more than a dozen members over time from mutants who lived in fear of being hunted by the government.

Perhaps unknown to all of the Resistants, they also served as pawns of the Red Skull. The Skull organized or influenced several criminal and grass roots organizations after his return from the dead, using them to destabilize America and other governments for his own purposes.
