The XX or simply The 20 are a fictional organization in both the XIII comic and game.


Main article: XIII (comic book)

The XX was most likely formed by Number I with help from various other people as a patriotic militia. Sometime after its creation, they began to recruit other like-minded and politically powerful individuals and with the help of William Standwell, took control of SPADs (Special Assault Destroying Section) turning them into mercenaries under the employ of the Mongoose. After several years of careful planning, they decided to strike against the Government.
