Nestled in the well-to-do suburb of Gross Point Park, The Vindicators base is the former residence of team financier Margaret Ashe.  The Mansion was constructed in the early twentieth century by her father Darius Ashe, himself a self-made man and a successful investor and philathropist.  The mansion has seen several renovations and modernizations over the years, the most recent one being the most major when the mansion was all but destroyed by the Tandians. Media mogul Franz DeTillo  concocted a scheme to rebuild the mansion and outlying buildings as a tourist attraction, but it turned out his reach exceeded his grasp and it was discovered he was heavily in debt and many of his properties were siezed by the IRS.  The property was purchased by Motor City and in turn was sold to The Vindicators.

Margaret Ashe: Still very much a mystery, Margaret Ashe had become a recluse in the last thirty years of her life after her husband, Turner
Ashe, disappeared in The Congo on a safari.  She had regularly donated to charities and political causes (she was apparently a die-hard
Libertarian) and from the archives in her mansion's library still read newspapers and kept up on current events.

In reality Margaret Ashe is Annette, Grimoire's aunt and member of the mysterious Sargasso clan of sorcerers.  Annette set up the identity of
Margaret Ashe some years ago after The First Doom (the Styf attack upon the Earth) and spent the next thirty years developing a painstakingly
detailed false history.  She then had Ashe "die" when it was decided a series of super hero teams was needed and her vast wealth was channeled into creating and supporting one of these groups.  Annette's original motives for creating the Margaret Ashe identity are unknown, although it is entirely possible the identity's primary purpose may have been as a money laundering front or other potentially less-than-savory uses. Only Melody Vinge or Marion Bradley may have any clue (NOTE: Margaret Ashe's true nature is still not known to The Vindicators.)
