Genius In action Research Labs (or G.I.R.L.) is an organization in the Marvel Universe with the goal of assessing the world's top female scientific minds.

Origin[edit | edit source]

Disappointed with the female showing on a S.H.I.E.L.D. list of the world's smartest people, she was motivated to prove the list outdated with a team of female scientists.

History[edit | edit source]

When learning that the peacekeeping organization S.H.I.E.L.D. had a list of the world's greatest minds, scientist and superheroine Nadia Van Dyne (the Wasp) was disappointed to learn that the highest ranked woman was 27.  Believing this to be based on gender bias, Nadia started Genius In action Research Labs, an enterprise that would allow her to assess the world's greatest female scientific minds and convince S.H.I.E.L.D. that their list was in need of revision and re-thinking.

Nadia, with the help of the Avengers' butler Edwin Jarvis, began to recruit genius sisters Tai and Lexi Miranda.  Soon, G.I.R.L. was using its know how to help Nadia fight and defeat the Red Room program, who planned to turn skilled women into brainwashed spies.  Popular high schooler Priya Aggarwal and Physics student Shay Smith where both targeted but were saved by Nadia and Shay joined the team.
