MUX (The Hardy Boys)
At the time of Casefiles #21 Street Spies, MUX was a multinational front for a band of technology pirates, in New York City, that were stealing new product ideas from world leaders in miniaturized transmitters and receivers (like World-Wide Technologies) after the products were out of the expensive design and development stage. Then they would tap the enormous Third-World labor pool and sell the products much cheaper than companies like World-Wide Technologies could. The Hardys ended up catching the MUX agent in charge of that particular operation, Louise Trent and her strong-arm man, Chung Lei. The rest of MUX stayed intact and left the USA. Later, at the time of Casefile #37, they came back to the country to steal a highly advanced computer chip created by Prometheus Computing. But the Hardys again managed to foil MUX’s plan and catch the agents involved, even so the group is still a large.
The Hardys have never been able to find out who the mastermind behind MUX is — the mastermind who has covered himself (or herself) with layers upon layers of umbrella organizations.
