Well I was born in St. Louis so I've got Duke, Storm Shadow (per some filecards) and Spearhead (who was in Kirkwood I believe, and is very close to St. Louis).

 

I know back at DDP I would fight for Storm Shadow's birthplace to be St. Louis and they'd never give it to me.

Growing up I lived near Allentown Pa, but I always hated Windmill. I was always proud that Steeler was from PA. There are some newer characters from PA now, but they were the only two while I was growing up.

I soooo miss the days of DDP, not perfect but underrated and far superior than IDW.

 

I was born in the same city as Thunder and airwave (lousiville Ky) but now i'm up in Alaska closer to Frostbite and kwin's hometown. I know lots of native Tlingits and Haida's but no Eskimos myself.

I grew up about 4hrs from Beachhead (Auburn, AL) & Med-Alert (Nashville, TN).

Now I'm about 4hrs from Roadblock (Biloxi, MS), Vypra (New Orleans), & possibly Gung-Ho (since Fer-de-Lance is fictional)

The closest to me would be Sci-Fi. According to Goole Maps, Geraldine, MT is about 5 hours from where I'm at.

Ditto for me! 94.7 miles. Where are you located?

I'm about forty-five minutes away from Breaker's home town. Love it there. It's a great tourist destination. I had actually forgotten the fact that he was from there.

 

I'm about an hour from Gatlinburg myself. Breaker and Flash were always my favorite from the original 13.
