So, I was thinking about the seemingly numberless hordes of cannon fodder in groups like Hydra or AIM, and I looked up other similar terrorist groups. Considering the number of members these groups all have in every appearance, what do you think is the percentage of world population who has belonged to at least one terrorist organization at some point in their life?

AIM
ARES
AID
Agence Byzantine
Agents of Anarchy
Atlas Foundation
Axis Mundi
Black Spectre
Clan Akkaba
Cult of Entropy
Dark Ocean Society
Enclave
Friends of Humanity
Goblin Nation
Hand
Humanity's Last Stand
Hydra
Imperial Forces
Life Foundation
Lords of the Living Lightning
Militia Men
Mys-Tech
Project: Earth
RAID
Right
Secret Empire
Sons of the Serpent
ULTIMATUM
WESPE
Watchdogs
Weaponeers
Zodiac

And these were the ones off the list (https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Category:Terrorist_Organizations) that I had heard of before.

So, seriously, in order for ALL of these groups (and twice as many others) to have such limitless members, at least a third of the men on Earth (it's usually almost all male, right? At least the cannon fodder...) population must have belonged to a terrorist group at some point, right?

Probably a similar effect to the way how according to television just about every other citizen of small places like Cabot Cove, ME (from "Murder She Wrote"), Oxford ("Inspector Morse", "Lewis", "Endeavour"), or the rural county of Midsomer ("Midsomer Murders") either has comitted a murder of fallen victim to one... \:\-\)

Eh. You could add up all of those and not come to even 1% of the world's population. There's a lot of crossover in those groups, as well. For instance, many Right joined Humanity's Last Stand; Secret Empire, Sons of Serpent, and HYDRA crossed over; AIM is/was a wing (tentacle whatever) of HYDRA.

I mean it is similar to movies and the like. There is as much fodder as is needed, does not have to be something one thinks about too much really.

In reality you do not have infinite brute force or anything and the point is that the groups in the comics do not either but are good at recruiting I guess or something.

I never thought about it too much. It is already a world of crazy powers.

Most of the organizations, for all their focus are a very small percentage of the population anyway.




Look Raist bunnies...
