Earth Defense Command
The Earth Defense Command (abbreviated EDC or E.D.C.) is an international human military organization dedicated to the protection of Earth. Operating under the banner of the United Nations with funding and equipment provided by the United States, the EDC primarily combats extraterrestrial threats, notably the Transformers.
- The Earth Defense Command originates in the Generation 1 Transformers cartoon episode "Five Faces of Darkness, Part 3", which also debuted Flint's daughter Marissa Faireborn. The IDW incarnation debuted in the "second season" of Robots in Disguise.
