Quote:I suppose it's really easy to evacuate the city. For all intents and purposes, the entire population "flies" (technically swims). It's easy for them to scatter, and they're not limited to 2 dimensions and highways.
Quote:Didn't Hyperion raise the city in the air and smash it last time? Hard to outswim that.
I'm sure many swam away before it came out of the water. It's not like Atlanteans just walk around.
Anyway, this was undone by time travel. In the revised event, Hyperion waited until everybody evacuated before he destroyed it.
Quote:Plus, I'd imagine most Atlanteans are rural just like surface dwellers. We've seen various Atlantean cities over the years, and not just because they were getting destroyed. Just like surface dwellers have NY, Miami, Dallas, etc., Atlanteans have Atlantis (cities, plural*), Tha-Korr, Skarka, Amphitrite, etc. I'm sure they have farming communities and the like, too. Atlantis is a continent. Heck, it's more than a continent: it spans multiple oceans.
Quote:* "Atlantis" seems to be a very common Atlantean city name, and there are many Atlantises, like "Springfield."
Quote:I want to argue that point because I'm pretty sure it's not true and the human city of Atlantis that fell into the sea was the site where the Atlanteans founded their own Atlantis but there are like 3 Lemuria's so I'd best not go down that rabbit hole.
We've been told of cities called Atlantis in multiple oceans. There's one in the Atlantic (where Byrrah is from), the Pacific (where Namor grew up), Tha-Korr (off the coast of Antarctica) has been called Atlantis on occasion (maybe writers just never cared).
City of Heroes is BACK!
