Notes

  • Los Angeles and the West Coast of the United States has historically had very few superheroes and villains compared to New York City. The West Coast Avengers (WCA) was the city's most prominent and longest-lasting superhero team; when Moon Knight and Maya Lopez fought the Night Shift, television news wondered if the WCA had returned.[11] Snapdragon was disappointed in the number of supervillains available to hire.[12]
