"Ah, not The Raft, Mr. Mayor. From this point on, it shall be called... Spider-Island... Two."
— Spider-Man


The Raft, also known as Spider-Island Two, is a prison for various superpowered criminals located near Ryker's Island.

HistoryEdit

Earth-616Edit

The Raft (Earth-616)

The Raft when it was a prison.

At some point, Electro, hired by a Skrull disguised as Elektra, instituted a mass prison break. Fortunately, Matt Murdock, Luke Cage and Spider-Woman were there to control the situation, along with Spider-Man (who arrived there hanging from a helicopter), Iron Man and Captain America. Although the efforts of the heroes were extraordinary, at least forty-six supervillains escaped.

Months later the Raft was renovated, being upgraded with a bioenergy dampening field surrounding the prison to suppress superpowers. Especially powerful inmates had inhibitors implanted on their spines. The waters around the island in a half-mile radius is infested with jellyfish that possess a powerful nerve-toxin. The courtyard is protected by a force field and thirty rayguns coordinated by a targeting computer. All guards wore light armor with obscured faces developed by Mach-V and carried electroshock weapons that only worked when operated by a specific guard. The United States' Thunderbolts program was also run from this location, allowing super-criminals to reduce their sentences by joining the state-sponsored crime-fighting team.

The Raft on Earth-8096

The Raft is one of four specialized, high security prisons maintained by S.H.I.E.L.D. along with The Big House, The Cube, and The Vault. The Raft was the place where only prisoners too dangerous for the other S.H.E.I.L.D. prisons were kept. The Raft complex is actually deep underwater at the bottom of the ocean, with a garbage scow at the surface as cover.
