Iron Mike

Description:

This superhuman gangster runs a vast criminal network. He is powerful and blatant, believing that subtlety is for the weak. His ambitions grow larger each day.

Game #18 Update: Iron Mike broadcast a message to the whole of Century Station, publicly decrying the Mayor, the Council of Industry, and all the Century Station heroes. He claimed the Waingroh district as his own and placed it under his protection. He announced no police, heroes, or vigilantes would be welcome in Waingroh anymore and that they would be killed on sight. Immediately following the broadcast, his lieutenants and gangs successfully routed the Century Station police force from the district. All known vigilantes in the district were either killed or routed as well.
