Freedom City - New Freedom League Ascendent
The Goodman Building
The Atom Family makes their home on the top five floors of the Goodman Building in Midtown Freedom City. Real estate financier Saul Goodman constructed the building and later sold it to Atomic, Inc., the family trust set up by Dr. Atom. Although the Goodman Building has been mortgaged and sold a few times over the years, it’s currently owned by the Atom Family trust once more.
As it happens, the top floors of the building are in the same spot where Centurion’s life-pod entered Earth’s dimension from the Terminus. Dr. Atom discovered lingering dimensional energies in the upper floors of the building, and constructed a special containment unit to ensure they would not spill over into Earth again (although they have anyway on a few occasions). The Nucleus houses an artificial dimensional gate, which the Atoms monitor for any signs of trouble. The Nucleus contains living space for the Atom Family, extensive laboratories where Dr. Atom and Tesla conduct research, workshops for constructing various technological devices, and the extensive computer system housing Dr. Atom’s intellect. ALEX takes care of most of the Nucleus’ upkeep, and Dr. Atom’s patents and the Atomic, Inc. trust pay for it all. The Goodman Building is fairly unremarkable, a skyscraper of steel and concrete with mirror-finish windows. The floor immediately below the Nucleus remains empty as a “buffer zone” between the headquarters and the rest of the building. This floor contains some backup and support machinery for the Nucleus.
