The show takes place in modern day Lighthaven City, a fictional city in which their police is privately owned by a select few living in the rich East End of the city. In the West End are the lower class citizens who have taken it upon themselves to create gangs to protect themselves from the police “owned by the upper class” as they put it.
Outlawed Justice is a character driven action/drama with grounded superhero tones and is inspired by more serious anime shows. “Characters die, they change, they grow. These characters are very human”, said co-creator Tony Piccirillo. “One other thing, there are superheroes on the show, but there isn’t any superpowers. The citizens of Lighthaven City have to look inside themselves to find the superhero within. Some embrace that superhero and adopt their inner warrior as their true identity while others don’t.”
