|“||“There’s a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I’m talking about the guys no one knows about. The guys that are invisible. The top 1 percent of the top 1 percent. The guys that play God without permission.”||„|
|~ Elliot Alderson unknowingly describing the Deus Group.|
The Deus Group is the main antagonistic faction of the USA Network series Mr. Robot. E Corp and the Dark Army, who were previously seen as the main threats, are actually just fronts or divisions for the Deus Group. The Deus Group is an investment group that was formed by Whiterose after the fall of the Soviet Union, manipulating major world events for gain in wealth and power.
The group was formed by Minister Zhang (aka Whiterose) after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, with her goal of building a massive billion-dollar machine underneath Washington Township (which resembles a hadron collider). The organization made most of its money on oil from the Gulf War and used the internet to collect data from the world's population, most notably using America as a test subject.
- The Deus Group serves as Mr. Robot's interpretation of the New World Order-concept, as the group has connections to countless real-world figures, such as Queen Margaret, Vladimir Putin, Barack Obama, and Fidel Castro.
