Born of a warrior society, each member is at least partially robotic. When their race was destroyed they banded together as the Collection Agency, a group of mercenaries. They will perform kidnappings, espionage and assassinations for a fee.
Each member is quite ruthless and their preferred mission is one in which killing is allowed. Jude, a full cyborg, is the leader. They have advanced weaponry including energy siphons and protective fields.
The Collection Agency did work for the Collector until Jude's apparent death. Janus and Shaara told him they could no longer trust him and therefore not work for him any longer.
The Collection Agency was created by Ron Marz and Ron Lim in 1992 and first appeared in Silver Surfer # 61.
