** The United Kingdom has [[ComicBook/{{Excalibur}} [=MI13=]]], the metahuman/supernatural/extra terrestrial branch of the Directorate of Military Intelligence (the designation is not used in reality). Previous British agencies were *deep breath*: [=STRIKE=] (Special Tactical Reserve for International Key Emergencies, a UK SHIELD), WHO (the Weird Happenings Organisation, a ShoutOut to UNIT), Black Air, RCX (the Resource Contol eXecutive) and DUCK (Yes, really. Department of Unknown and Covert Knowledge). Some of these organisations turned out to be evil, and the exact juristiction boundaries (or even which ones, if any, existed at the same time) were never clearly established. An [=MI13=] story {{lampshade|Hanging}}d this by having an [[SecretIntelligenceService MI6]] officer remark none of these agencies will ever last.
** A certain amount of TruthInTelevision: [=MI13=] briefly existed during WW2 as the branch of British intelligence charged with supporting prisoners-of-war in Axis captivity. It organised the smuggling of escape aids into prison camps, and co-ordinated attempts to use prisoners in a position to glean useful intelligence snippets as agents; it received a continual low-level stream of information about life inside Nazi Germany from prisoners who had pre-arranged coded means of getting the information out. [=MI13=] also debriefed ex-prisoners who had successfully escaped home, and briefed serving soldiers on captivity and what to do if captured.
