The Wheelhouse serves as the central headquarters for G.E.N.E.S.I.S.. It is a thirty story building, located in Washington D.C., on the shore of the Potomac River, near Theodore Roosevelt Island.


Named after Senator Burton Wheeler, and was at one time considered to be a modern marvel of architectural innovation. The building was affectionately dubbed, “The Wheelhouse” due to its design which the architect had based off the prehistoric, Iron Age structures found in Scotland.

Design and CapabilitiesEdit

The building consists of a central hub that contained a plate glass elevator shaft and three spoke-like walkways on each floor that connected to the surrounding cylindrical floor space.

Like other government buildings in the area, its public face was that of a memorial, however the lower levels served as the Washington D.C. headquarters of the Global Espionage Network of Elite Supernatural Investigations & Surveillance aka G.E.N.E.S.I.S..

The Wheelhouse is a GENESIS installation that secretly houses the GENESIS Main Headquarters and its three divisions including:

  • I.D.E.A. (International Department of Extraterrestrial Affairs)
  • I.C.O.N. (International Committee on Neo-Humans)
  • U.S.U.C.U. (United States Unexplained Crimes Unit)
