Project Pegasus (Potential Energy Group/Alternate Sources/United States) is a fictional scientific base in the Marvel Comics universe which has been the location of a variety of stories for superheroes and supervillains, most notably in the title "Marvel Two-in-One". Project Pegasus is not to be confused with DC's Project Cadmus.

Created in "Marvel Two-in-One" #42 (August, 1978) by writer Ralph Macchio, Project: Pegasus was originally intended to research alternative (and unusual) forms of energy, but has also been used as a prison for super-powered individuals. The location of this facility is described as being in the Adirondack Mountains in New York State.

The facility is remembered best in comics for "The Project Pegasus Saga" printed in "Marvel Two-in-One" #53-#58 (later collected as a trade paperback of the same title, co-written by Macchio and Mark Gruenwald with art by John Byrne and George Pérez). However, its recurring use as a prison for supervillains of the Marvel Universe has led to a number of comics stories in the following decades, significant among them an emergence of the Serpent Crown. Several Marvel characters have served terms working security at the facility, including The Thing and Quasar. At one time it also served as a temporary home for the Squadron Supreme when they were exiled from their own universe.

Other versions

Ultimate Project: PEGASUS

An Ultimate version of Project Pegasus appears in the miniseries "Ultimate Power". This version is located in Devil's Point, Wyoming.

The head of security is S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Wendell Vaughan (Quasar's Ultimate counterpart). After the project is attacked by the Serpent Squad, who believes that the Serpent Crown is contained there, Vaughan refuses to confirm or deny this claim, stating that "all Project Pegasus business is classified under the Gruenwald Doctrine". The use of the name Gruenwald is presumably an homage to Mark Gruenwald, who wrote many Project: PEGASUS stories.

Ben Urich, Daily Bugle reporter, also mentions it to Jonah Jameson as the subject of an article he's writing in issue #106 of Ultimate Spider-Man.

In other media


Project: Pegasus is seen in "" in the episode "The Cure," in which the Mole Man is trying to attack the base.
