"I thought since Luthor Corp now owns the D.E.O., National City could use its own collective. A headquarters to keep this city safe, to work outside of corporate and government oversight, whose interests might not always side with justice. [...] A place for my Superfriends to work, whenever they should need it."
J'onn J'onzz[src]

The Tower is the headquarters of the Superfriends.

History

The Tower's speed-dial panel

The Tower's speed-dial panel.

Taking inspiration from the S.T.A.R. Labs hall established as a headquarters by Barry Allen, J'onn J'onzz repurposed a section of his building to act as a secret headquarters outside of governmental oversight, for the Superfriends. When they dropped by his office, J'onn showed them the base and explained that it would become a base of operations for the Superfriends. The Tower also has a panel on a wall to "speed-dial" Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Martian Manhunter, Dreamer, and Brainiac-5.[1]

Querl Dox came here and talked Supergirl into using Myriad to find the kidnapped users of Obsidian Platinum.

Later, M'gann M'orzz arrived at the Tower to help with the capture of an escaped sun-eater. [2]

The Tower was used by Dreamer as a safe place to sleep as she searched for clues on how to find Leviathan. Meanwhile, M'gann and J'onn conversed about their pasts and how they keep intersecting, causing them to have a moment, which was interrupted by Nia's snores.[3]

Behind the Scenes

  • The Tower is a homage to the Watchtower, an orbital satellite used by the Justice League to detect incoming threats.
    • Similar to the series Smallville, the Watchtower is made into a building instead of a satellite orbiting around the Earth.
