City of Mist Victorian London
It was by this time about nine in the morning, and the first fog of the season. A great chocolate-coloured pall lowered over heaven, but the wind was continually charging and routing these embattled vapours; so that as the cab crawled from street to street, Mr Utterson beheld a marvellous number of degrees and hues of twilight; for here it would be dark like the back-end of evening; and there would be a glow of a rich, lurid brown, like the light of some strange conflagration; and here, for a moment, the fog would be quite broken up, and a haggard shaft of daylight would glance in between the swirling wreaths. The dismal quarter of Soho seen under these changing glimpses, with its muddy ways, and slatternly passenger, and its lamps, which had never been extinguished or had been kindled afresh to combat this mournful re-invasion of darkness, seemed, in the lawyer's eyes, like a district of some city in a nightmare.' Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, 1886
This is Victorian Noir Superheroes in what can be called the original City of Mist — fog-shrouded London of the mid-1800s in all its squalor and glory. The Mist has descended upon the city, raising up living embodiments of legend and myth to face a brave new century. You are one of these awakened legends, joining forces with others like you to try to make sense of the chaos.
