MISERY is a criminal organization that was operating in the 1960's. They had at least one secret base and access to laser technology.
When Cate Archer was investigating the H.A.R.M. facility at the Bremen docks she overheard a conversation between two thugs. One of them, named Keith had just hired on with H.A.R.M. after previously working with MISERY. Keith described the plot by MISERY to use a giant laser to vaporize the Empire State Building. The plot had failed. MISERY had hired some non union technicians to put in the cooling system. Almost blew up the whole secret base.
While infiltrating the H.A.R.M. Underground Base, Archer found an intelligent item detailing the sale of some PU-38 explosives from H.A.R.M. to MISERY. MISERY was unable to set up the explosives so the Assistant to Executive Director Volkov requested that H.A.R.M. employee Wes Saulsberry be assigned to the project.
MISERY also hosts a company basketball team that plays against other criminal organizations. On September 17, 1967, the MISERY team played the team from H.A.R.M. Misery lost the game 88-27. H.A.R.M. credited their Counter-Counter Intelligence Research Group for special handling of the MISERY water supply.
