University District

Perhaps the only thriving neighbourhood in the city, the University District is fairly low-crime and wealthy. The segment of its population that isn’t composed of starving students is, for the most part, comfortably middle-class. The University provides plenty of employment, both as an education institution and a major power plant. The DCU fusion reactor, begun as a flashy attention-grabbing project, has become the first and largest commercial fusion power plant in the US. This is thanks to the permanent residence of Captain Plasma, who “sleeps” inside the reactor itself (and thereby helps to stabilize the fusion reaction). Despite residing in one of the US’s most dangerous cities, however, Captain Plasma doesn’t do much superheroing in Delta. His sponsors prefer to keep him in more high-profile areas like Los Angeles, San Francisco, or the East Coast. (When challenged on this point, they consistently point to the socioeconomic boon that is the University power plant.)
