Necessary Evil: A Venture in Star City
Star City lies two miles off the coast of the eastern seaboard of the United States, about halfway between Boston and New York, and is over seven times the size of Manhattan (180 square miles). The island Star City was built on was created in 1955 when the nearly omnipotent being know as the Outsider came to Earth. Other than the fact that Star City is home to an inordinate number of super-beings, the island is completely normal.
Star City is in fact shaped like an eight-pointed star. Four large points alternate with four smaller points surrounding the large central section.
Each of the points forms a subsection of the city. The large points are known by their compass counterparts: Northpoint, Eastpoint, Southpoint, and Westpoint. The small points have more colloquial names of Beachhead (NE, known as Brightbeach pre-invasion), Tempest (SE), The Docks (SW), and Prospect Point (NW). The central area of the city is divided into two subsections: Uptown to the north and Downtown to the south.
