The Mist Wall is an enormous skyscraper serving as the headquarters of the New York branch of the Nebula conglomerate. In September 1933, the Larva and Jacuzzi's Gang infiltrate Mist Wall in search of the failed immortality elixir, and a suicide bomber causes structural damage to its top floor Babel Restaurant.

The events that took place in September are known as the "Mist Wall Incident," and have since been covered up by Nebula and Senator Manfred Beriam. Homer, the head of the New York branch in the 1930s, was noticeably absent during the affair. All twelve hundred of its employees are incomplete immortals as of 1933.


Located off the East side of Grand Central Station, the Mist Wall is a high-rise building designed in the Art Deco style of architecture. Its nickname derives from the famous color of its walls, which have alternatively been described as "white" and "translucent grey."

The Mist Wall's highest floors are fashioned in the shape of pyramid steps, with a restaurant called Babel located on the top floor's skydeck. Though it is barely half the size of the Empire State Building, its color and style have left a striking, favorable impression on the locals.

The branch's large reception hall is reminiscent of a hotel lobby, with over a dozen elevators lining its walls and an information desk located in the center of the hall. Next to the information center is a small open lobby, with several tables available for visitors waiting on appointments.

The Babel Restaurant[]

Located on the skydeck just above the base of Mist Wall's pyramid, the Babel Restaurant is Mist Wall's crown jewel. Its walls are made almost entirely of glass, offering patrons a breathtaking view of the Manhattan cityscape. Babel's menu offers items ranging from the affordable to the luxurious, explicitly making it so that all sorts of customers are welcome.
