Chernobyl was a nuclear power plant and neighbouring city in Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union.

The plant was notorious for undergoing a meltdown on 26 April 1986 which rendered the entire region uninhabitable. (COMIC: Black Destiny; AUDIO: Power Play) 40,000 people died of cancer as a result of the disaster. (PROSE: Iceberg)
