History

Madripoor flag

Madripoor was an island in Southeast Asia, located in the southern portion of the Strait of Malacca, southwest of Singapore.

Its official name was the Principality of Madripoor and its capital and single large city was Madripoor, which was divided between wealthy Hightown and impoverished, crime-ridden Lowtown. This served to represent the extreme social inequality in Madripoor, described as "A place for the very rich and the very poor." Madripoor was once a haven for pirates, and that tradition was somewhat continued today with its lawless quality; the Principality did not allow other nations to extradite criminals. However, it was one of the business capitals of the Pacific Rim, with its own "Trade Center." Other locations of note in the Central Business District were the Bank of Hong Kong and the Bank of Malaysia, luxurious Sovereign Hotel, and the Prince's Palace, said to rival Versailles.

The island was best known because of its relation with the mutant known as Wolverine and the fact that the villainess Viper became a long-time ruler. More recently, it became the focus point of an alien invasion led by the evil Khan, but was stopped by a team of X-Men. Afterward, the newest Scorpion traveled to the island to learn more about her secret past and her mysterious mother.

It was later revealed the island rested on the back of a giant dragon, which was awakened by the Hand.[1]

Madripoor was apparently based on Singapore; they are both south Asian island port nations with a single major city.
