Daredevil 2099 #1
In this universe, Earth was once teeming with super heroes and gifted mutants. Then, in conjunction with the reinstatement of the Mutant Registration Act, a process was discovered which could eliminate mutant abilities. This caused a backlash from the X-men and other mutant groups, later the Avengers and the Fantastic Four, who turned on the American government. This conflict culminated in a massive battle in front of the Baxter Building which the heroes of New York lost. Those who weren’t killed were imprisoned and the Age of Heroes ended.
By the year 2099, the government has exerted strict control over the populace. Sentinels patrol the streets, crime is down, and any existing heroes remain underground. But now a new generation of heroes has emerged.
