Milestone. A Game Changer
In 1993, Milestone Media (distributed by DC) launched a new series of comics set in its own unique universe. Milestone comics took place in the fictional city of Dakota. During an epic battle between street gangs known as the Big Bang, police used an experimental gas that ended up killing most of the gang members there. The ones who survived gained superhuman powers. It’s in the world of the so-called “Bang Babies” that most of the comics were set.
