Californian island prison, operational 1859-1936.
With the number of costumed and super-powered criminals coming to the fore in the late 20th century a number of them were incarcerated at Alcatraz. In 1941, it was where Human Torch foe the Parrot was incarcerated until he escaped and was subsequently slain by his foe. It was also where Nazi assassin the Python was incarcerated before he was broken out of prison on orders from Hitler himself. The Human Torch, Toro and Sub-Mariner attempted to stop the escape, but failed. They eventually slew the Python in New York City.
Alcatraz Island later served as H.A.M.M.E.R. West for Norman Osborn's Dark Avengers and Dark X-Men. The island housed Omega Machine and the served as a detention center for captured mutants. Their ambiant power was also used to fuel the Omega Machine and Weapon Omega. Dark Beast also experimented on his mutant prisoners.

When Magneto was leading his Brotherhood of Mutants to overtaken Alcatraz and destroy The Cure, he moved the entire Golden Gate Bridge as passage to for his army. It was here that the X-Men had their last stand against Phoenix and the Brotherhood.
Alcatraz island was a prison for dangerous mutants. Governor Harcourt Teesdale (AKA Arcade) served as the director-governor. He created mutant-themed attractions to tortures and punish prisoners. A mutant named the Basilisk was used as an unwilling executioner for years until we was able to escaped, murder Arcade, and free the mutants imprisoned there.
