Central City, California, was the original home of the Fantastic Four. It was from the nearby rocket base that Reed Richards and the others blasted off on their fateful trip into space. This was also the place where the Fantastic Four made their debut as a superhero team when the Mole Man sent his monsters to attack the surface.
When Franklin Richards used his vast psionic powers to create a duplicate "pocket" universe in another dimension to save his family, he included a duplicate Central City. This Central City would host Project Excelsior, the experimental quantum drive space craft that would launch the "reborn" Fantastic Four into space once again, duplicating their origin.
