The Inquisition are sadomasochistic fanatics who believe near-constant personal torture is necessary to extract deep philosophical truths about the universe. Three of their number were about to inflict much pain on ex-SHIELD agent Mercedes Merced
, posing as a waitress, to lure the Taskmaster
to them; however, she was saved by Taskmaster, who killed them instead. The Inquisition was also part of the Minions' International Liberation Front's plan to overthrow the Org
, but they were again defeated by Taskmaster.
