Advanced Research Group United Support, simply known as A.R.G.U.S., is a research group and special ops division of the United States government, charged with the task of taking down terrorist threats in secrecy and without public knowledge.


A.R.G.U.S. headquarters.

A.R.G.U.S. facilities are used to house prisoners that are too dangerous to be placed in other prisons; such detainees have included Ramsey Rosso[1] and Gorilla Grodd.[2]


A.R.G.U.S. works closely with the Central City Police Department in cases that seem to be greater than it can manage. A.R.G.U.S. was called to house the prismatic refractor when Joe West knew that there was a mole in the department;[3] the organization was called by Barry Allen in order to take Joseph Carver to witness protection because he too did not trust the police department due to Chief of Police David Singh being impersonated by a mirror clone made by Eva McCulloch.[4]

Erased future

In an erased future, A.R.G.U.S. became a publicized organization that policed cities and had the power to declare martial law. It was also the center of the Anti-Meta-human Act, a new restriction started in 2021 where it was illegal to be a meta-human.[5]
