Shortly after Doctor Mist (leader of the Global Guardians) was imbued with power, he had his likeness carved into the side of a mountain, as a way to inspire fear in his enemies. To impress upon them, the fact that he was the one to look upon with awe.
Doctor Mist lives here, calling it his ‘Mountain Retreat’. It is along the coast of east Africa.
He vows never to leave, because he is so powerful.
