History

Brooklyn (named after the Dutch town Breukelen) is one of the five boroughs of New York City. An independent city until its consolidation into New York in 1898, Brooklyn is New York City's most populous borough, with more than 2.5 million residents.

During World War II, the Brooklyn Navy Yard was one of the most important locales for the manufacturing of naval ships and weaponry. In 1942, the Ultra-Humanite manipulated time-lost members of the futuristic Infinity, Inc. team into attacking the Navy Yard, under the belief that they were actually saving lives. During this incident, Nuklon and the Silver Scarab came into conflict with the Guardian and later with All-Star Squadron members Commander Steel and Liberty Belle. [1]

The Brooklyn Navy Yard became the scene of another fantastic battle decades later when the super-villain Typhoon arrived in New York. Generating a fantastic wind storm, he smashed through the Brooklyn shipyards, until he found a man named Anton Hammer. Anton Hammer was the captain of the Neptune Explorer – one of the ships present during the accident that first transformed David Drake into Typhoon. Typhoon killed Hammer and dragged his body within the wake of his storm trail. [2]

In 1988, Power Girl involved herself in a fight with a villain known as the Force. During the battle, a reporter suffered severe impact damage when the Force knocked Power Girl into him. [3]

Brooklyn was also the home of firefighter Diego Zhao and his girlfriend Maggie Flynn. In 2006, a raging fire swept through Flynn's apartment complex resulting in the death of her daughter Samantha. Diego (having spent the evening drinking), was unable to save Sam's life. The incident traumatized him and he decided to devote his life to finding "those who are lost" and assumed the guise of Rush. [4]

History

Brooklyn is the second largest borough of New York City and the largest in population with over 2 million residents. It is a flat terrain located on Long Island across the East River and Upper New York Bay from Manhattan.

Also known for its ethnic diversity, Brooklyn maintains a clear distinction from the rest of the city. It has a centralized business district and neighborhoods are varied and hold definite characteristics apart from each other. Racial tensions have been known to run high primarily in the neighborhoods of Bensonhurst, an African American neighborhood and Crown Heights which is populated by Orthdox Jews.

Brooklyn is home to many industries and the Port of New York which handles a large volume of foreign and domestic trade with most facilities located in the northwest. Manufacturers are varied as the area handles anything from metal works to to textiles. Other industries include construction and transportation.

  • St. Estes Home for Boys: This mansion estate (now in ruins) is where Cletus Kasady grew up as a child. A number of years ago, a fire gutted the institution resulting in the death of its disciplinarian administrator. Although no evidence was found, it is suspected that Cletus Kasady may have had something to do with the fire. When Kasady became the super-villain known as Carnage, he had his first encounter with Spider-Man in this building. [1]
