The small town of Hope, Idaho

The small town of Hope is the closest town to the Academy's West Coast campus, and its isolated, rural location helps keep even the wildest speculation in check.


The classic 'small town with a secret', Hope has long been a secretive refuge for those metas who just want to live a normal life in peace without the world criticizing or fearing them. While the populace has varied wildly and notably decreased over the years as more and more news about metas has become prevalent, there remains a core group of supporters that make up the town's backbone, and their loyalty and support made the nearby forested areas a perfect choice when the need for another Academy campus sprung up a few years ago.


Many metahumans, along with a few aliens and others, call this small town home and often make up a majority of the populace, those this trend has declined in recent years. Still, there remains a good portion of metas in the area, and many live quiet lives in relative peace with their non-powered offspring and relatives.

While still a small town, unusual things tend to happen often enough - and with most of the populace content to lead normal lives, practicing heroes like the teens of the Academy are more than welcome when it comes to stopping the odd supervillian threat or bank robbery.
