History

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. [1]

Shortly before the Crisis on Infinite Earths, 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. [2] 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. [3]

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Detroit, Michigan is a city in the United States of America. It is located near Lake Erie.

Fiction

Transformers Animated cartoon

Detroit was once the "Motor City", the automobile manufacturing capital of the world. By the 22nd Century, Detroit had once again become a leading manufacturing hub—for robots. As for what happened to the city between those two periods, well, who knows?

The city's robotics industry was led by (and may have consisted solely of) the Sumdac Systems corporation. Most of the competition proved less than inspiring. This reliance on a single, monolithic industry is certain to provide economic stability for all time.

The city had a newly unveiled mass transit system, sponsored by Sumdac Systems, the Fully Automated Rapid Transit System, or FARTS. Real mature, Isaac, real mature.

The city then became home to a team of five robotic superheroes, the Autobots. Having crashed aboard their ship some fifty years earlier in Lake Erie, they awoke and appointed themselves guardians and defenders of the city's Humanity. When one of their old foes showed up in town, they ended up trashing a fair bit of the city. Not to be deterred, they worked hard to help rebuild it. Naturally, this involved hitting things with an ax. The Autobots made their home in an abandoned, early 20th-century factory. Transform and Roll Out!

Just an average day in Detroit. That's the price you pay for letting Transformers live there.

Poor Detroit continued to suffer a great deal of robot-inflicted calamities after that. Among their troubles were robots flinging flaming fuel tanks into the air Home Is Where the Spark Is, robots smashing an entire parking lot full of cars Blast from the Past, robots getting thrown through the roof of the local sports arena Total Meltdown, robots inducing rolling electrical blackouts across the city Thrill of the Hunt, robots disguised as rocket-powered cars crashing into things Nanosec, robots sucking the life force from the city's population Along Came a Spider, robots sparking a massive automaton rebellion Sound and Fury, robots obliterating construction sites while flat-out trying to kill one another Lost and Found, robots kidnapping young children from their homes Survival of the Fittest, robots unable to stop the destruction of the city without destroying half of it Headmaster, robots blasting holes in major downtown skyscrapers Megatron Rising - Part I, robots destroying downtown buildings and bridges while trying to kill each other Megatron Rising - Part II, good robots driving over cars in the street The Elite Guard Return of the Headmaster, evil robots threatening to bomb passenger trains Mission Accomplished, robots dumping garbage all over the city before threatening to destroy it with super-powered nanobots, Garbage In, Garbage Out, robots destroying overpasses and stealing construction materials Rise of the Constructicons, robots shutting down every other mechanical device in the city SUV: Society of Ultimate Villainy, robots rampaging through the city while trying to find devices Black Friday, and robots raiding motor supply stores and destroying cars stuck in traffic jams Sari, No One's Home.

To be fair, Detroit has also suffered at the hands of its own human population. These include humans with fancy weapons attempting to rob armored cars Home Is Where the Spark Is Garbage In, Garbage Out, humans going on steroid-induced rampages Total Meltdown, humans risking city-destroying explosions by stealing incredibly volatile substances Nanosec, humans waging violent crusades against war toys Sound and Fury, humans attempting to detonate nuclear reactors in blatant attempts to destroy the city Headmaster, humans organizing illegal street races without regard for the safety of other drivers and pedestrians Velocity, and human crime syndicates stealing various pieces of equipment for nefarious purposes SUV: Society of Ultimate Villainy.

You wouldn't want to be its mayor.
