Organization Identity



Governmental organization created to monitor and police underage superheroes.

First appearance



After the Champions battled an Asgardian Dragon left over from the War of the Realms, the subsequent damage done to Coles Academic High School, and the hospitalization of a comatose Kamala Khan, swayed public opinion enough for Senator Geoffrey Patrick to pass the Underage Superhuman Welfare Act into law, a bill that outlawed superhero activity involving those below twenty-one years of age, as well as called for the formation of an organized task force, dubbed the Child-Hero Reconnaissance and Disruption Law Enforcement or C.R.A.D.L.E., to police and enforce this law via detention of any underage young heroes who violated the new standards.[2]

One morning, C.R.A.D.L.E. agents under the command of Dum Dum Dugan approached to arrest Spider-Man the younger in Brooklyn for apparent violation of Kamala's Law. After a brief interlude of viewpoints on C.R.A.D.L.E., Dugan's agents were outpaced and neutralized after they underestimated the "junior" Spider-Man. Later, Brooklyn Visions Academy was put under forced inspection to locate other teen vigilantes, but were called away by a Spider-Man (Miles) sighting, unaware that the real Miles was walking in the front gate. The same agents returned in the evening to compel students to sign a pledge to report any vigilante activity, but protests by Barbara Rodriguez and other students leads to their mass arrest for refusing to sign.[3]
