Re: Best and worst super team headquarters

I think the Justice League ground/satellite combo in its various incarnations (pre-New 52 comics, Young Justice, JLU) probably works best. If I had to nail down one favorite out of those it'd be the JLU Metrotower/Watchtower combo, probably due to the versatility and speed of deployment offered by the Trek style transporters (as opposed to the YJ Zeta tubes, needing a station on each end).

Outside of the practical question, I have a nostalgic fondness for the original JLA Satellite and the classic upside-down rocket ship Super-Hero Clubhouse of the Legion. The Moon-based Watchtower of Grant Morrison's JLA was pretty cool as well. And I think the futuristic Legion HQ of the classic Levitz/Giffen years--with its antigravity architecture, storage tesseracts, and tamed Computo to run the show was pretty awesome, too.

I've always loved The Hall of Doom, something about it like Black Manta and Lex Luthor's green-and-purple armored suits are cool no matter how objectively silly they might be.
I thought the Super Friends Hall of Doom sucked, with its shameless rip of the Darth Vader mask. But, Hanna-Barbera turned into such a hack company by that time, I should have expected rip-offs (like that pirate episode where the villains are using lightsaber clones).Then there's the interior--talk about a waste of space! The meeting room like the U.S. senate floor, leaving little room for whatever powered the thing.

Yeah, the Levitz/Giffen Legion run is one of those times a group's HQ has really come alive for me. The story where it gets invaded by Computo (annual #1, "Monster in a Little Girl's Mind") is one of the best comics I've ever read.

I thought the giant headquarters the Canadian government built for Alpha Flight during Fabian Nicieza's run was really cool. Shame that when Scott Lobdell took over, he leaned heavily on the hoary and boring "the public hates superheroes" trope.

Re: Best and worst super team headquarters

One thing about the Baxter Building/Four Freedoms Tower is that the Fantastic Four would conduct spacecraft launches from it....on a building situated in Manhattan!

I don't know much about New York's city codes, but I don't see this happening in real life. This is the kind of thing Bloomberg should be more worried about, rather than how much soda a person drinks.

You save the city from a giant monster or two they give you some perks.
