History

It is a branch of the Canadian Department of National Defence and is also responsible for the recruitment, provisioning, administration and deployment of Alpha Flight.

It employed many mutants and other superhumans to fight for Canada by joining their three "Flight" programs. The first tier was a training team called Gamma Flight, where members would move into a transition team known as Beta Flight where they received advanced training before joining the premier team of Alpha Flight.

The Department is also known to have connections to an orphanage in Orloo, Ontario called Hull House, from which it has recruited superhuman agents in the past.

Beyond its superhuman resources, Department H also makes use of soldiers outfitted with hi-tech arms and armor called Epsilons.

A flashback showed General Chasen (the head of Department H), Vindicator, and Heather Hudson recruiting Wolverine as a member of its Alpha Flight.

In the present, Department H has Alpha Flight lure Wolverine back to Canada in hopes for him to rejoin Alpha Flight and learn how he managed to survive the adamantium-bonding experiment in order to successfully duplicate it. Puck and Snowbird spied on them and informed the other Alpha Flight members. Alpha Flight ended up fighting Department H's security droids.
