VSI Corrections is a privately owned prison company, specializing in the incarceration of super-powered beings. After the public became aware of SHIELD’s illegal method of locking up metahuman criminals, the agency was ordered by the President to cease any long term detention capabilities. SHIELD facilities are still allowed to be used to imprison super-powered criminals for up to 14 days, the prisoner must then be transferred to a jail system managed by the legal system of the appropriate jurisdiction. This created a concern that standard prison facilities, even with the use of the technology that can suppress super-powers, would not be sufficient to prevent escape.
Vandal Savage Industries (VSI) formed a subsidiary named VSI Corrections. With the combination of proprietary inhibitor technology and cutting-edge body scanners, VSI Corrections invented “specialized” holding cells. The holding cells are 15 foot square cells, which are self-powered and able to adjust the nature of it’s inhibitor field to match the specific powers of the prisoner. The cells are lightweight; one can be transported by a medium sized helicopter, or several by truck.
As part of Vandal Savage’s “Giving Back” program, VSI Corrections only charges governments a small fee to cover the food and healthcare of its inmates. The cost of construction, operation, security and storage of the prison cells is absorbed by VSI Corrections. This extremely low cost has ensured that VSI Corrections is the #1 private prison company for super-powered criminals, with over 90% of all government contracts.
