rdfs:comment
  • The 5th Column are a group of super-villain from City of Heroes. The organization originated after World War II as a society of Fascists determined to continue a war most other nations were quick to try and leave in the past: they remained a significant threat until they were apparently taken over by the Council, yet those in the know still question whether or not the 5th Column have truly gone or are simply biding their time, waiting for the right moment to rise again.
  • The 5th Column was one of the most powerful villain groups in the world. Shortly after Issue 3 went live, the Council completed a hostile takeover where the war spilled over into the streets of Paragon City. Any 5th Column members that didn't join the Council were killed or went into hiding. All of the arch-villains in the 5th Column joined with the Council. This included their leader, Requiem, as well as Nosferatu and Vandal.

abstract
  • The 5th Column are a group of super-villain from City of Heroes. The organization originated after World War II as a society of Fascists determined to continue a war most other nations were quick to try and leave in the past: they remained a significant threat until they were apparently taken over by the Council, yet those in the know still question whether or not the 5th Column have truly gone or are simply biding their time, waiting for the right moment to rise again.
  • The 5th Column was one of the most powerful villain groups in the world. Shortly after Issue 3 went live, the Council completed a hostile takeover where the war spilled over into the streets of Paragon City. Any 5th Column members that didn't join the Council were killed or went into hiding. All of the arch-villains in the 5th Column joined with the Council. This included their leader, Requiem, as well as Nosferatu and Vandal. Though the villain group was effectively removed with the introduction of the Council in Issue 3, they have made a reappearance with Issue 11. During "The Ouroboros Initiation" story arc given by The Pilgrim, The 5th Column appear as the enemy group when the player travels back in time 15 years. Building upon their re-introduction here, the 5th Column made a somewhat more relevent appearance in Issue 12 when they acted as the power behind Romulus Augustus's sudden rise to power. During the course of the Imperious Task Force it becomes apparent that the Column is far from defunct; they have simply gone underground into the mists of time, establishing what Requiem refers to as "temporal fortresses" throughout time. 5th Column banners also still occur in certain Portal Corp missions when traveling to Council controlled earths, where the 5th Column banner can be seen on buildings along with the Council insignia.
