Lagos is a major city in Nigeria.


Stoneface, after his defeat by Captain America, was sent back to Lagos by Boss Morgan. He later kidnapped a visiting Leila Taylor but this brought him into conflict with again with the Falcon who was assisted this time by the Black Panther.[1]

In Lagos, the Emerald Warlock, Declan Dane, tortured a man named Douglas Sotinwa using his powers. Declan explained that he was doing this because Douglas was an ancestor of someone who was part of a group who back in 600 AD did something to Declan. He has for centuries been hunting down all the lineage of that group. He declared he has killed tens of thousands of people to achieve this. He killed the young man by throwing him into the sky because his dream was to be a pilot.[2]
