Points of Interest Edit

Coral Gables
Coral Gables is a city located in Miami-Dade County. The University of Miami is located here. The Marvel Comics character, Curt Connors, was born in Coral Gables. As an adult, he relocated to the Florida Everglades where he conducted experiments that transformed him into the Lizard.
The town of Citrusville is located here. This is also the location of the Nexus of All Realities, which has become the territory of the mysterious swamp monster known as the Man-Thing. This is also where a ship carrying an alien known as Howard the Duck landed many years ago. The criminal scientific research organization, A.I.M. maintained a laboratory in the Everglades. This is also where Project Armageddon was conducted.
In 2005, Hurricane Eve swept across Southern Florida, wreaking great devastation throughout Homestead. One of the most notable incidents to occur at this time was the downing of a passenger jet in the Everglades, which killed everyone aboard except for Tom Underlay - or so everyone thought. Tom Underlay was the sheriff of Homestead and his miraculous near-death experience coincided with sighting of strange lights seen in the bay. What few people knew was that a race of alien spores had seeded the Florida Everglades, carried in by Hurricane Eve. These spores attached themselves to a deceased individual, replicating their forms, even to the point of duplicating their memories and personality. These genetically replaced individuals continued to work and live as they had always done, and some were even unaware that they were in fact alien host organisms. Underlay knew however, and did his best to safeguard the alien presence from others. One individual who took a particular interest in the peculiar events going on in Homestead was park ranger and former marine biologist Russell Varon. As a park ranger, he had access to areas where the mysterious underwater lights were being seen. Russell's brother-in-law, Dave Groves, was a conspiracy theorist who correctly deduced that "pod people" were taking over Homestead.
Shark Bay
Boating enthusiast Lee Forrester once docked her ship, the Arcadia in Shark Bay, Florida. An old flame of Lee's, Scott Summers, came down to Shark Bay to visit her. He helped her strip the motor on her boat and later, the two went for a walk on the beach. [1]
