Freedom City, NY was established in 1604. The first metahuman to appear, Captain Tomorrow, was from Freedom City. Also the first super villain was here as well, Doctor Negative. The number of metahumans grew until 1987, when the government deemed "supers" too chaotic to allow basic freedoms. The Beachamp Act would allow the United Nations to take children that proved to be meta-gene positive for government training. Some metahumans fled to countries outside the UN's jurisdiction, others rebelled creating what is called the Super Resistance others gave in essentially becoming agents of the Initiative, an organization that until 1988 was secret. Super villains are still out there, illegal supers are outlaws, the Resistance members are seen as terrorists or worse, and many feel that the UN and the Initiative are becoming tyrannical. These are dangerous times... In need of HEROES! Xan Edit: Locked to make way for a new game.
