ARGENT (acronym for "Advanced Research Group ENTerprises") are an evil organization from Champions Online who have been involved in numerous criminal activities, many of which are megalomaniacal in nature- designed to either increase ARGENT's existing power or (more often) to try and reshape the world with ARGENT as its supreme masters.
Some of ARGENT's most notable schemes are kidnapping a young "Protopath" from PSI Inc and forcing her to remake reality with ARGENT as its rulers and the enslavement of many Manimals from Monster Island, which they regard as "filthy animals", despite many Manimals having human-level intelligence and a capability to show fear, pain and other emotions (which ARGENT flat out ignore, regularly abusing them).
In addition, ARGENT are quite happy to use their Cyborg enforcers to disperse protestors who gather outside their base, despite the protestors rarely engaging in violence themselves- this is a type of suppression and shows ARGENT to be extremely intolerant of any opposition.
However, despite their evil, ARGENT may not fully be independent, as at least one member has been shown to be under the mental command of Menton.
