Esperanza City is built on the ruins of Los Angeles, after it was destroyed by Desolation-in-Light in her first appearance.
Los Angeles was destroyed by Desolation-in-Light after she teleported from Lady Light's womb into the middle of a fight between The Protector and Doctor Despair. It was later rebuilt into a much more advanced city, partially as a monument of defiance.
Crocell attacked Esperanza City after being set loose by the Gefährten from The Instillation. It was eventually brought down by a coalition of heroes, villains, and one of Sovereign's Subjugators. Specifically, Brennus, Polymnia, Tick-Tock and Boom-Boom modifying the Subjugator Mark VII. Many lives were saved by Journeyman working behind the scenes to evacuate people.
