Paragon City

Once a shining beacon of prosperity and boasted the highest concentration of super powered heroes on the planet. Unfortunately the Rikti War devastated the cityscape leaving regions devoid of life, if not leveled to the ground, and upwards of 80% of the heroes died in the fighting.

In the almost 13 years since the end of the war the city has struggled to rebuild it’s former glory. The once magnificent sky line was forever altered by the erection of the War Walls, technology created from captured Rikti technology used to defend agaisnt further attack and to contain areas to dangerous to allow the public to enter. The heroes that sprang up in the wake of the war’s losses have become the leaders and mentors of the second post-war generation of heroes.

While many areas of the city remain dangerous, if not uninhabitable, signs of progress are everywhere. New buildings and new heroes have sprung up to replace what was lost. Some of the War Walls have lowered their energy shields, allowing freer access to many areas of the city even as it grows and strives to rebuild it’s damaged infrastructure. The recent death of Statesman has sent shockwaves through the community and emboldened many villains to strike out at the rebuilding city. This latest generation of heroes has it’s work cut out for it.
