Murderworld is the fairground-style deathtrap used by the assassin Arcade to kill his victims using its sophisticated robotic and holographic systems. Arcade has often pitted superheroes against Murderworld, mostly for the challenge.
There have apparently been Murderworlds in several different locations around the world.
Arcade commonly captured his victims using a converted garbage truck that sucked in the target with an extending section on its back.
One of Arcade's Murderworlds in New York was used as headquarters by the New Warriors after being abandoned. It was converted by Night Thrasher, Kaz and Grace into a new Danger Room for his new New Warriors composed of depowered mutants.
A Murderworld was created in Mutant Town at the request of the former Purifier Taylor, to gain revenge on X-Factor. (His recruit Julio Richter turned out to be a spy for X-Factor, and the Purifiers had expelled him for it.) This Murderworld led to the destruction of Mutant Town.
He kidnapped teen heroes from various affiliations: the students of the Avengers Academy: Hazmat, Mettle, X-23, Reptil, Juston Seyfert and his Sentinel; the Runaways Nico Minoru and Chase Stein; Darkhawk, Red Raven, Cammi, Becca Ryker and the students of the Braddock Academy: Anachronism, Nara, Apex, Cullen Bloodstone and Kid Briton.
He then ordered them to kill each other in order to survive the Murderworld.

In this reality, the heroes used the Orb of Teleportation of Doctor Strange to go Castle Doom, but Baron Mordo divert their teleportation to Murderworld and the heroes defeat Arcade to leave that place.
Alcatraz Island was a prison for dangerous mutants. Governor Harcourt Teesdale (AKA Arcade) served as the director-governor. He created mutant-themed attractions to torture and punish prisoners, which earned Alcatraz the nickname "Murderworld". A mutant named the Basilisk was used as an unwilling executioner for years until we was able to escape, murder Arcade, and free the mutants imprisoned there.
