During the 1980's, the controlled most of the political underworld through the use of enhanced human beings and the greatest scientific minds. It was founded many centuries ago in Europe, run secretly by ruling families of many nations.
During the 1980's, the Maggia was responsible for almost exposing the criminal organisation HYDRA from within S.H.I.E.L.D. before HYDRA destroyed it's power and influence once and for all with the deaths of Maggia leaders Count Nefaria and Madame Masque.

By modern day, the Maggia still operates out in the open as a corrupt system led by multiple political families. Though having retained some power over the last 30 years, Obadiah Stane has said that they will never reclaim the power they 'somehow' lost in the 1980's.
