When G.U.A.R.D. was created, the idea in mind was to form a powerful, multifaceted group of highly skilled people to maintain a level of order and a 'common sense' approach to combating the menaces of the world. As such, G.U.A.R.D. operated 'outside' of the United Nation's (UN) jurisdiction, but still had a responsibility, in part, to the UN. With all the menaces that G.U.A.R.D. has faced, their elite organization of thousands of operatives were hindered by the inability to properly respond to super-powered threats, nor were they able to facilitate an effective rapid-response team that was able to operate in any condition it was thrown at. Since G.U.A.R.D. didn't want to become a 'militarized' organization, they instead found several exceptional candidates that could aid in super-powered responses (designated as Condition "Alpha" responses). These candidates formed to create G.U.A.R.D.'s new super-powered response team, The Aeroguardians.
The Aeroguardians were mostly from a unique Civil Air Patrol Super-powered squadron that contained high tech and meta-human powers and skills that performed Emergency Services and Search and Rescue (SAR) tasks. Their ability to conduct rapid responses and work together as a functional team made them an ideal band of people to pool into the Aeroguardians. Over time, more members from outside this group joined, and has since become an incredible group of heroes that work under the AEROGUARD Division.
Their leader, Aeroguardian, demanded that their group still perform in lifesaving, Emergency Services and SAR capacities for G.U.A.R.D., but in the event their unique skills were need to combat super-powered problems, The Aeroguardians would respond as required.
Since their first mission as the Aeroguardians, the team has saved thousands of lives, including dozens of superheroes near death's door resulting from battling a super-villain or group of super-villains. The team has also engaged in several major battles, and like the Calvary of old, their appearance on the scene has always turned the tide of the battle as the victor.
In most villainous circles, The Aeroguardians are considered a dangerous faction that, due to its tide-turning capacity, must be stopped at all costs. As such, the Aeroguardians, have accumulated many enemies.
The team was earned several international commendations, including the coveted Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts in helping others and stopping violent actions against the citizens of the world.
