The Vigil #1

Told primarily through the perspective of NIA officer Nia Saha who gets promoted in the first issue, we are introduced to a secret superhuman group funded by the Indian Government which even they don't know actually exists (believing it to be a complete failure and waste of time and resources). Not unlike the opening season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the response team's mission is to find and remove dangerous technology from the world.

While DC has more than enough spy organizations around the world, I'm intrigued by the idea of the Vigil, although so much time is spent on worldbuilding and Nia, we don't get to know the team much other than seeing them in action on a ship hijacked by pirates. The secrecy of their existence is one problem Nia will no doubt have to wrestle with, along with team dynamics, as is some evil organization after the head of the project who has just found her predecessor.
