Las Vegas is the most populous city in the state of Nevada, United States and an internationally known vacation, shopping, entertainment and gambling destination. The name Las Vegas is often applied to the unincorporated areas that surround the city, especially the resort areas on and near the Las Vegas Strip. This 4½ mi (7.2 km) stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard is mostly outside the Las Vegas city limits, in the unincorporated towns of Paradise and Winchester.
During Hydra's short-lived empire in control of the United States, a contingent of rebel heroes called the Underground used The Mount as base of operations, which resulted in a peak of rebel activity in the vicinity, including Las Vegas. Because of this, Hydra targeted Las Vegas, sending an army of Hydra Helicarriers to raze the city.
Following Hydra's fall, Doctor Strange used magic to restore the city. He accidentally tore an interdimensional doorway from where Mephisto invaded Las Vegas, manifesting the supernatural casino Hotel Inferno. The tower's influence began to change the citizens of Las Vegas, making them act on their very base instinct and impulse. In turn, for even the lesser of sins, their souls were taken by Mephisto. After Strange failed to win the liberation of the city, Wong assembled the Midnight Sons to oppose Mephisto's forces. The Hell-Lord was defeated when Johnny Blaze usurped his vacant throne and became the new king of Hell. The city returned to normalcy afterwards.
