The Rogue’s Gallery

The Rogues Gallery
No superhero team is complete without villains to flex their muscles against.  While Pacifica City has not yet had to contend with any serious super-villains, the likes of The Empress who threatened Tokyo in 2003, or The Tyrant who nearly took over Los Angeles in 2007, there has been a growing mutant population in the city, particularly in the area known as the Bowden Island Slums.

Contained herein, is the dossiers on various known threats and all the information available on such individuals.

Doctor Hwang has fallen under the belief that mutants are somehow to blame for him getting fired, and spent the past several months using his savings to develop his own powered suit, using his cryo-formula.  Using special gauntlets to make the ice and control them, he then attacked the Protectors  and was subsequently apprehended.
Status: Recovering from injuries sustained during arrest, and awaiting trial at The Box.

Criminal Organizations:

The Bowden Island Movement: Made up primarily of mutants with moderate to severe physical mutations, the BIM is led by a figure known only as Anvil.  Responsible for most of the drug distribution, smuggling and protection in the Bowden Island Slums, Anvil has recently began working to expand his territory to include the rest of Bowden Island, including the dockyard on the north-western part of the island.  This has put him at odds with both the Genovisi Family, who owns the docks and the Iron Dragon Triad who are also interested in owning the property.

The Genovisi Family: An Italian mob family, the Genovisi have held the majority of the city for almost 6 decades, since Antonio Genovisi arrived and using his own powerful connections, united the other three families present and became the Don.  Since then, leadership has passed down to Antonio’s descendants, and the family is now led by Maria Genovisi, Antonio’s granddaughter.  Maria, a competent business woman in her own right before assuming control after the murder of her father some six years ago, has led the family with grace, skill and an efficient ruthlessness.  The Genovisi have a wide range of activities, including smuggling, blackmail, extortion, protection racquets, and money laundering to name a few.

The Iron Dragon Triad: While not new to the city, having been a part of the city’s Chinatown since almost its inception, the Triad has only begun to expand its influence in the city in the past eight years.  To that end, they have sent the mysterious Jade Princess to manage their affairs.  The Princess has been successful in increasing the territory, but this has been largely into areas that were not already owned by either the Genovisi or the BIM.  Now however, there is little space left unclaimed and while the Triad does own the smaller shipping port south of Bowden Island, they seek to gain control of the Bowden Island port to both increase their own power, and strip it’s access from their rivals.  The Jade Princess has been working carefully to avert a direct war with the Genovisi, concerned that she does not yet have the manpower to cripple the Genovisi and hold whatever ground she gains.  Specializing in gambling, money laundering, blackmail, and extortion, with limited smuggling capabilities.

The Minute Men:  New to the city, and seeming to be recruiting from low-level members of the other gangs, it is suspected that the Minute Men are behind the gang war that is starting to erupt in the city.  It is also believed that the Minute Men control the strange clockwork automatons that have shown up at several points in the past two weeks.  So far only one name has been connected to the organization: Drucker.
