Welcome to Paragon City, the greatest city in America and home to the world's most famous heroes. The city has claimed for itself the title birthplace of the hero, an assertion that may or may not be true. However, no one can deny the fact that today Paragon City is home to more super powered heroes than any other metropolis on the planet. Why? Because not only is Paragon City the largest city in the US, it also goes out of its way to support its hero population. In Paragon City, heroes fight crime and villainy with the government's approval and to the population's applause. Here a hero can rise to the heights of fame, fortune, and power as long as he keeps his image positive and the local authorities appeased.
You stand silently on a roof-top high above Paragon City , watching as the full moon rises wavering through a distant haze. Below and beyond, the city has become a glittering jewel in the falling night. Unfettered by the bounds of gravity, you launch yourself effortlessly upwards. You soar among towering skyscrapers, a steely-eyed hunter, ever vigilant, ever ready to battle evil. You are the hero!
