The important thing to remember about PART is it's NOT actually an army or a part of SHIELD. It's like someone in the United States Senate (*cough* Senator Cage *cough*) decided that they'd give a branch of the FBI rocket-launchers and tanks then told them to go nuts.Voltron64 wrote:Another question, is Subdirector St. Claire aware of the corruption inside both PART and the city's government and law enforcement?
And is Sierra Leone clutching his hands onto PART as well?
It's a law enforcement branch w/ a lot of ex-Department of Homeland Security members who were "kicked upstairs" when Senator Cage decided to make the ridiculous organization. They promptly recruited a bunch of people from the Army, Blackwater, and the street. Plenty are, against all the laws of common sense, ex-cons with a history of violence.
It's a ludicrously stupid organization.
Subdirector Saint Claire is more or less bull-riding this boondoggle to prevent Senator Cage's plan to create a "War on Super-Terror" from occurring even after his banishment as well as making lemonade with his lemons. While Saint Claire has no use for superheroes due to the actions of Commander Baseball, the Trixsters (he's unaware they were framed), and the fact his brother was a superhero killed for being insufficiently prepared--he's not a bad guy while PART manifestly is. Unfortunately, PART is the only gun he has when things get messy and they frequently do in the city.
In General Stag's case, the man is misguided rather than evil as he believes that his actions in keeping superhumans locked up and superheroes shut down is justified. Mostly due to the death of his daughter. His assistant, Mia, of course is a psychopath whose treatment by Uncle Mikey has convinced her that all superhumans have to be killed. She's also received supernatural powers from Buzz.
