History

Las Vegas is the most populous city in the U.S. state of Nevada, the seat of Clark County, and an internationally renowned major resort city for gambling, shopping, fine dining, and entertainment.

Known for its opulent gambling casinos, this was where underworld figure Anthony Gallo became a millionaire and a force to be reckoned with in the gaming industry. [1]

Las Vegas, Nevada was the scene of a fight between Blockbuster and teen hero Eliza Harmon, aka, Impulse. Lex Luthor stripped Harmon of her super-speed powers at a critical moment during the fight and she was killed in action. [2]

Las Vegas, Nevada was one of several key cities that came under attack during the Sinestro Corps War. [3]

Alternate Realities

Earth-AD: In the continuity of "Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth", Las Vegas, Nevada still existed, albeit in ruins. It was here that Kamandi fought the giant ape, Chaaku. [4]

Hockey in Las Vegas

Early years

Las Vegas saw its first hockey team in 1970 with the Las Vegas Gamblers of the Pacific Southwest Hockey League and were followed from 1971 to 1973 with the independent Las Vegas Outlaws. After the Outlaws folded, it was twenty years before Las Vegas saw professional hockey come back, but it did with three teams in 1993 (2 ice hockey, 1 roller hockey) with the Las Vegas Thunder of the International Hockey League, the Las Vegas Flash of Roller Hockey International, and a second conquest into the Pacific Southwest Hockey League with the Las Vegas Aces. The Flash folded after a single season and the Aces followed a year later, but the Thunder proved to have staying power as they became a perennial contender in the IHL. During the Thunder's six year stay in the IHL, Las Vegas saw two more hockey teams: the Las Vegas Ice Dice of the North American League in 1995 and the Las Vegas Coyotes, the city's second roller hockey incarnation, playing in the reborn RHI in 1999; the Coyotes lasted one season, while the Ice Dice did not play a single game.

Present

Las Vegas was granted an expansion team in the West Coast Hockey League in 1999, weeks after the Thunder folded and were expected to start play during the 2000-01 WCHL season, but was unable to because of the lack of an arena lease. The team known as the Wranglers were finally able to strike a deal with The Orleans Hotel & Casino to be the permanent tenant of the gaming resort's multipurpose arena that was under construction. After five years in voluntary suspension the Wranglers were set to finally drop the puck during the 2003-04 WCHL season, but the league was absorbed by the East Coast Hockey League. The Wranglers were finally able to start their inaugural season during the 2003-04 ECHL season and have held many honors including two division championships, one conference championship, one Brabham Cup and posting the highest winning percentage of any team in ECHL history. In 2008, the Wranglers enter their sixth season of play, tying the Thunder as the longest tenure of a hockey team in Las Vegas, and making it the second oldest sports franchise in the city's history.

Since 1997, Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena has been home to a series of Los Angeles Kings exhibition games, known as Frozen Fury. Having outbid Anaheim and Phoenix for the NHL marketing rights to Las Vegas, Frozen Fury started off as a "marketing stunt" for the Kings that became a weekend party for their fans. Nine of the eleven games have featured the Kings taking on the Colorado Avalanche, with the only exceptions being Frozen Fury III in 1999 with the Phoenix Coyotes and Frozen Fury V in 2001 with the San Jose Sharks. The most recent edition of the series was Frozen Fury XI which took place on September 27, 2008, with Colorado defeating Los Angeles, 4-3 in a shootout.

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Las Vegas is an ostensibly real human city in Nevada.

Contents

Fiction

Generation One

Dreamwave Comics Continuity

The Keepers Trilogy
Starscream staged a hostile takeover of Las Vegas, signing a lucrative (and exclusive) deal with media mogul Darren Norbert to commoditize worldwide interest in a city where humans live side-by-side with Transformers as the backdrop for the reality-television series Real Life—Transformers Style.

Setting up court in the MGM Grand casino, Starscream initiated Project Renewal, designed to turn Vegas into some sort of lurid sideshow paradise more of a lurid sideshow paradise, where the slots pay out more money than they take in (paid for by outside investors,) adventure is in the air, every man a winner, every cop a hero, and anyone can be a star.

He officially rechristened the city New Vegas, though the locals privately refer to it as Dirty Vegas, while loving every minute of it.

Starscream's reign came to an end when the all-powerful Keepers returned with Megatron. Though he resisted Megatron's attempts to re-take the Decepticon forces (appointing Skywarp his second in command after Soundwave left) he was less successful at resisting the Keepers.

New Vegas's era came to an end when the joint Autobot/Decepticon invasion to unseat Starscream reduced much of the casino district to smoking rubble, and the President of the United States attempted to nuke the city. Keepers Trilogy


The engine of commerce that drove New Vegas was publicly said to be its high-profile media coverage, but the real incentive for outside investors was the Decepticon technology Starscream was offering. Long after New Vegas had fallen, it lingered.

Locations
  • Palms Grayson Hotel - Fictional hotel where the decepticon sympatizer Buckingham laid a trap for LVPD officer Ryan O'Brien.
  • MGM Grand - Casino Starscream used for his base of operations.
  • Mirage - Casino where one of the patrons was goaded into going on a rampage for the cameras.

Unicron Trilogy

Panini Armada comic

In 1957 while excavating to construct a new casino, construction crews unearthed a fragment of the Mini-Con ship Exodus containing the Land Military Mini-Con Team. It was transferred to Area 54 under care of the E.R.T.D..

Movie continuity

Transformers: The Junior Novel

The final battle takes place in Las Vegas, instead of Mission City like it does in the film. For information about the battle, see the Mission City article.

Transformers: Autobots/Decepticons

The Las Vegas Casino Strip serves as the first region in both games (in the Decepticon's version, the first and last).

Transformers: Autobots

Casino Strip has two missions only. Bummer.

In The New Arrival, Create-A-Bot arrives on Earth, and is guided by Ironhide. First, he reaches an objective point, then defeats three Decepticon drones, then learns how to shoot, then kills a Decepticon chopper, then scans a vehicle, then drives to an objective point. *breathing hard*

In Put to th Test, Create-A-Bot must destroy three Decepticons, then has to kill off an evil clone. The end.

Transformers: Decepticons

Casino Strip has one more mission than the above game. Bummer.

In The Rookie, Create-A-Bot arrives on Earth, and is guided by Barricade. He must reach the objectives, then kill Autobot drones, then learn to shoot, then kill an Autobot chopper, then scan a vehicle, and finally, drive to an objective point.

In Hazing, Create-A-Bot must cause damage, then destroy four Autobot drones, then kill off a good clone. Sucker.

Finally, in Final Showdown (which is obviously the Final Showdown between two Decepticons), Megatron must kill off Starscream. The end. Go home now.

Seriously, there's nothing left. Go home.
