Gangs of Millennium City
Millennium City has a fairly serious gang problem. Most of the gangs have their “turf” on the west side of town, but by no means all of them. Taking their cue either from the gaudily-garbed superhumans around them, or perhaps the movie The Warriors, many of the gangs dress in distinctive styles and adopt specific mannerisms or habits. They include:
- the New Purple Gang, the largest and toughest gang in the city, led by the powerful telekinetic
Kevin Poe, a sworn enemy of the supervillain organization PSI;
- the Black Aces, who wear face paint and bowler hats and give their leaders card-inspired names;
- the Cobra Lords, a biker gang whose members favor chains and knives as weapons; and
- the Maniacs, who dress in bizarre ways and act like they were escapees from an insane asylum.
