I think one of my favorite aspects of the “Arkham City” video game is the Wonder City area.
I love the whole look and feel of the 19th century urban ruins hidden beneath modern day Gotham City.
I’m envisioning using this area in the fic I’m writing now. Right now, though, I’m brainstorming how Wonder City was created, condemned, and then hidden by the past Gotham City powers-that-be.
Most of that will be taken straight from the video game.
It’s that last part that’s tricky… How does a whole urban area, no matter how large or small, get “erased” so completely by the local/national government that it’s nearly completely forgotten (or turned into an urban legend/conspiracy theory) by the 21st century?
