History

TheRaft 001

The Raft

The Raft was a prison for various superpowered criminals located near Ryker's Island, NY.

At some point, Electro, hired by a Skrull disguised as Elektra, instituted a mass prison break. Fortunately, Matt Murdock, Luke Cage and Jessica Drew were there to control the situation, along with Spider-Man (who arrived there hanging from a helicopter), Iron Man and Captain America. Although the efforts of the heroes were extraordinary, at least forty-six supervillains were released.

Months later the Raft was renovated, being upgraded with a bioenergy dampening field surrounding the prison to suppress superpowers. Especially powerful inmates have inhibitors implanted on their spines. The waters around the island in a half-mile radius are infested with jellyfish that possess a powerful nerve-toxin. The courtyard is protected by a force field and thirty rayguns coordinated by a targeting computer. All guards wear light armor with obscured faces developed by Mach-V and carry electroshock weapons that only work when operated by a specific guard. The United States' Thunderbolts program is also run from this location, allowing super-criminals to reduce their sentences by joining the state-sponsored crime-fighting team.

After a prison riot lead by the Spider-Slayer was put to rest, Spider-Man managed to blackmail J. Jonah Jameson into giving him ownership of the Raft for the purpose of making the former prison his own personal headquarters and renaming it "Spider-Island Two". Ultimately, the Raft was destroyed when the Goblin Nation attacked it, forcing Spider-Man to escape.[1]
