Basics: Located in the Appalachian Mountains on New River at the intersection of I-81 and I-77, St. Elsewhere is a metropolitan hub and one of the largest cities in the United States.
Attitude Towards Heroes and Vigilantes: The population of St. Elsewhere has a divided attitude towards heroes and vigilantes. While half the population supports them and sees them as the only solution to the ever growing villain menace, others believe that the heroes are nearly as bad as the villains they claim to fight.
The police in St. Elsewhere have a mandate to arrest any vigilantes, on site. As a result, nearly every hero in St. Elsewhere has a secret identity that they guard with the utmost secrecy, less the St. Elsewhere PD come knocking at their front door.
Crime and Villains: St. Elsewhere, like nearly every major metropolitan city in the United States, is in a constant state of battle with villains and the crime they create. On average there is one crime a week in St. Elsewhere that can be directly attributed to a “super villain” and likely there are actually far more than that which just are simply never reported to the authorities.
