The current Fallen Heroes’ Memorial Garden is the fourth such monument Titan City has constructed. The first was built during WWII about 1942 to commemorate the first few fallen heroes, including a couple in the war effort. It was destroyed in 1947 by an ex-Axis villain who blew it up using a revolutionary explosive that might had won the war for the Axis. He hoped to hold the city hostage, but was defeated. The second memorial was built in 1962 but was lost only five years later when a freak exposure to cosmic radiation sent into into a bizarre alternate dimension. The third version wasn’t built until about 1986, but was destroyed when a massively dangerous villain no one had ever heard of before appeared one day and began to kill every hero he could find. After the villain was finally defeated, the city decided in 1997 to demolish the bullet-riddled, blood-soaked ruins and rebuild it as we know it today. Since then, the memorial has been the occasional target villainous factions. Fortunately there will always be heroes in Titan City to discover these plans and foil them.
