These floating structures have been one of the dastardly Baron Blade’s signature mega-gadgets. Any civilian who spots a Mobile Defense Platform on the horizon knows it’s time to evacuate - any hero knows it’s time for a fight. However, after his series of failures, Baron Blade granted the use of his floating fortresses to any villain who could offer him additional power or information. As a result, the platforms have been the site of many varied tussles between the mighty heroes and threatening villains of the Multiverse.
Each Mobile Defense Platform is run by a crew of Blade Battalion soldiers, gunners, and mechanics, and offers a wide array of villainous amenities. Heroes should take great care before setting foot on such a structure, regardless of what villain might be aboard.
