Campaign Setting

Detroit is a major city in Wayne County, Michigan. It is best known for its contributions to the automotive industry and for the establishment of Motown. It is also the birth place of Will Everett, a man who would go on to become one of the first African American costumed super-heroes, Amazing Man.

During World War II, the Ultra-Humanite manipulated time-lost members of the futuristic Infinity, Inc. team into attacking a tank factory under the belief that they were actually saving lives. During this incident, Jade and Obsidian first encountered their father Alan Scott, the Green Lantern. Believing that Alan was a threat to peace, they attacked him. Neither Alan nor Jade or Obsidian had any idea of their family connection to one another at this time.

Aquaman established the second incarnation of the Justice League of America and operated out of a compound facility owned by Hank Heywood III, also known as Steel. The Justice League abandoned this facility shortly before disbanding as a team altogether.

In recent years, Detroit has become the home city of the most recent man to bear the mantle of Firestorm – Jason Rusch.

Currently, Green Lantern Corps member John Stewart has taken up residence in Detroit.
