China Force is a team of Government agents that were given artificially enhanced powers and costumes based on the animals from the Chinese zodiac. At one point they had twelve agents representing each animal from the Chinese zodiac but majority defected or were killed. The only four operatives remaining were Rat, Ox, Rabbit and Snake. The Chinese government would send China Force to Ottawa so they could bring back home a former operative named Dei Guan aka Jade Dragon because they believed he was a traitor and defected from their homeland. China Force would kill Dei Guan's escorts and subdue Jade Dragon after Rat renders him powerless with her claws laced with an inhibitor drug. China Force hoped that Dei Guan would be found guilty as a traitor and killed so a message would be sent to several members that defected which included Horse, Monkey and the Dog. They would board a plane headed back to their ship in Anchorage when they are placed under the spell of the Dreamqueen when China Force entered her sphere of influence. The Dreamqueen altered the perception of the China Force members so they believed they were back home in China and she used them as pawns to attack her most hated foes, Alpha Flight. China Force would come into conflict with Alpha Flight when they believed they were being invaded by the Canadian heroes. China Force puts up a valiant fight but they are overpowered and outclassed. Laura Dean would open a warp gate to China and Shaman uses a wind spell to send China Force back home.
China Force would reappear later and come into conflict with a group of Chinese rebels called 3 Peace which consisted of Jade Dragon, Nuwa and the Collective Man. 3 Peace would join forces with the Mutant Liberation Front when they offered to help free the mutants that were being detained by the Chinese Government. China Force would come into conflict with both teams when they infiltrated a facility that was being used to search for mutants within the borders of China. Rabbit would be killed by Reignfire during that confrontation.
China Force became known as The People's Defense Force are was re-structured to consist of Collective Man, Radioactive Man, Most Perfect Hero, Princess of Clouds, the Ninth Immortal,Scientific Beast and Lady of Ten Suns. The People's Defense Force would confront an extraterrestrial being called the Unspoken on their homeland. The Unspoken was an unidentified extraterrestrial and was given the option to leave China immediately or face arrest. The Unspoken took an aggressive stance and the People's Defense Force attacked the alien intruder. Majority of the People's Defense Force was decimated by the Unspoken and the only surviving members were the Collective Man, Radioactive Man and Scientific Beast.
