The Banished Pantheon are a villain group in City of Heroes. They are a cult devoted to ancient gods that were banished many centuries ago. This misanthropic group despises anything living apart from those within their ranks.
The Banished Pantheon is lead by corrupt spirits that inhabit masks and totems. These spirits care little about what happens to anything, or anyone, as long as their malicious desires are satisfied. They hold dominion over hundreds of human servants and thousands of undead minions with which they spread their revolting grip, trying desperately to bring back their banished gods.
The human, living servants are just as perverted as their spectral masters, taking pleasure in killing anything and anyone, using deadly elemental powers and necromancy to accomplish this goal. They can be found around the spirits, worshipping and protecting them.
Their zombie hordes are formidable. Using the weaponry of past wars, these walking husks of fallen soldiers boast considerable fire power. The glowing symbol on their chests seem to be the source of their resurrection, or at least what allows them to be controlled. The living members of the Pantheon also bear these strange glowing markings.
This group controls almost completely the zone of Dark Astoria in Paragon City and has a strong presence in the graveyards of Striga Isle and Sharkhead Isle. They are also seen spilling out of Dark Astoria into Talos Island under the cover of darkness.
