So, this ball was sent my way one of my super friends, Homemaker. Just to make things as confusing as possible, I'll answer both as Sapphire Sting and as mild-mannered Steve.
Name 4 or more...
Places I've lived: Steve
1. Los Angeles, CA
2. Santa Barbara, CA
3. Phoenix, AZ for a few months one summer
4. 2 years in various parts of Guatemala
5. Provo, UT (attending BYU)
Places I've lived: Sapphire Sting
This question is a bit more complex for me, since I remember little of my past before the explosion. I know that I was a manual laborer in an underprivileged nation - likely somewhere in Central America - before the explosion which nearly claimed my life.
When I came to, I was in a hospital which I later discovered to be located in southern Florida. I was there for quite some time, learning to live with the life-giving devices implanted in my body and working with physical therapists to gain a semblance of a normal life.
Then the breakthrough occurred - I discovered that I was able to tap into the energy reserves of my medical implants to heal myself and others. I realized that my newfound talents needed to be used for something greater, so when I left the hospital I went to Paragon City and found an apartment in Atlas Park from which I launched my career as a crime fighter.
Today, I reside on Talos Island, connected by monorail to Paragon City, with my wife, Alba, and my daughter, Carmen.
Places I've been on vacation:
1. Favorite: Disney Land / Disney World. I've always found myself at peace while at these parks. Maybe it has something to do with my inner child, but I love 'em.
2. New York - I've spent 2 summers in New York at economics conferences hosted by Libertarian groups. I've seen Phantom of the Opera and Les Mis on Broadway.
3. Across the Midwestern U.S. with my family. We visited historic church sites, such as the jail where the prophet Joseph Smith was martyred, and the foundations of the earliest modern temples.
4. Tempe, AZ for my brother-in-law's wedding.
While the life of a superhero doesn't provide much leisure time, a hero must take time to refocus himself, to recover from battle, and to renew his spirit. My vacations never take me far from Paragon City, though, since I may be needed at any moment. Thus, I content myself with visits to places like Founders' Falls, where one can see some of the marvelous architecture of Paragon City. With the Red River flowing through its center, it is truly a thing to behold.
I also sometimes take time off to aid fledgling heroes who are just beginning their journey. I often travel to the Hollows, the site of a massive, caved-in crater, to protect, heal and teleport young heroes on their way through dangerous terrain.
It's time for some sleep, so we'll get to the rest of this soon.
