(Dark Angel #6/2) - Dark Angel of Earth-616 traveled through time to the year 987 AD. She arrived as her fathers sect were about to summon Mephisto to complete a demonic pact. She unleashed a blast, disrupting their ceremony. Overloaded with information due to her cosmic powers, she launched herself back towards the present day.
(Dark Angel #6/2 (fb) - BTS) - As a result of Dark Angel's attack, the Mys-Tech board was never formed. Unfortunately this left way open for A.E.G.I.S. to flourish. Their methods are far less subtle.
(Dark Angel #6/2) - Dark Angel arrived in a 20th century where A.E.G.I.S. were in control. Their men patrolled the streets with guns. She realized that reality was far too complex and used her powers to undo what she had done, returning to the present day of her own timeline.

Not much is revealed about the organization A.E.G.I.S. itself, though the brief glimpse of their world we saw made it clear they weren't nice (more like a totalitarian state under martial law). What A.E.G.I.S. stands for is a mystery. Although Dark Angel undid her alteration of the timeline, an Earth-A.E.G.I.S. presumably still exists.
This story was printed far earlier in the UK. Not just in terms of publication, but in terms of the order of the stories. In Overkill, this story took place between the events of Hell's Angel #2 (after Shevaun flies to investigate the Un-Earth) and #3 (where she arrives outside Mys-Tech Central with the Guide and Vakume). She was still called Hell's Angel at this time, but the version in Dark Angel #6 changed her codename to Dark Angel.
