History

Madripoor flag

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

Its official name is the Principality of Madripoor and its capital and single large city is Madripoor, which is divided between wealthy Hightown and impoverished, crime-ridden Lowtown. This serves 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, a tradition that is somewhat continued today with its lawless quality; the Principality does not allow other nations to extradite criminals. However, it is one of the business capitals of the Pacific Rim, with its own "Trade Center."

The island was best known because of its relation to the mutant known as Wolverine and the fact that the villainess Viper was a long-time ruler. More recently, it was the focus point of an alien invasion led by 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]
