“Pleasure Island” is one of a small chain of islands off the coast of Metrobay. The islands are owned collectively by the Circle of R.O.P.E. and are protected by a host of high-tech security systems created at APEX Industries. Pleasure Island was developed as a tropical resort destination for R.O.P.E. members to get away from the bustle of city life and relax amongst their multi-millionaire criminal associates.
Unbeknownst to the general public, Pleasure Island is also home to some of R.O.P.E.’s illicit and immoral business endeavors. The island hosts everything from illegal gambling to black market arms dealings to sex slavery rings, all outside the jurisdiction of the Metrobay Police Department or the Superheroine Squad.
While under the influence of Max Indeks, Mayor Turner was coerced into ordering the Squad to take a ‘vacation’ to Pleasure Island after the events of the so-called Night of the Drones. So far Ms. Metrobay has resisted her boss’s efforts, citing an increased workload and new recruits to train. She is unaware that there may be something sinister waiting for them when they get there, but nonetheless feels that something isn’t quite on the level with this unexpected break from crimefighting.
