Prison can be a drag, but Stronghold is ten times worse.
Champions Online released the first bit of information about one of their in-game zones: Stronghold.
By the mid-1970s, supervillain crime was taking a vast toll on the American economy. Supervillians were stealing billions of dollars in cash and property each year, and destroying billions more. One reason was that it was difficult to keep superpowered villains incarcerated – catch a few, and it would be only a matter of time before they busted out of prison or were freed by their cohorts.
In 1976, noted penologist Dr. Charles Wildman proposed Stronghold – a super prison designed to hold supervillains.
Stronghold would be buried deep in an isolated New Mexico mesa. Its massive stone walls would be strong enough to withstand superpowers, but more importantly, the super-technology within the prison would block superhuman abilities and be capable of containing even the worst threats.
