The ABB was based out of the east end of the city, mainly in the area known as the Docks. They were mainly known for pressuring all young Asians in that part of the city to join; this was unusual, as most Asian gangs will recruit from a single ethnicity.
Along with the Empire Eighty-Eight, the ABB is one of the most prominent gangs in Brockton Bay. Despite having far fewer capes than the E88, the ABB was considered equally threatening, mainly thanks to the powers of Lung and Oni Lee and later the immense destructive capabilities of Bakuda.
On the lower levels, the gang is primarily held together by intimidation and murder.
Bakuda was able to expand membership immensely through forceful recruitment via a combination of kidnapping, murder and implanting bombs in peoples' heads.
The Brockton Bay Protectorate has tried to stop them several times, but were unable to bring Lung into custody.
|Lung||The founder of the ABB, conquering and crushing minor gangs to absorb into his own. The longer he is in a fight, the harder he is to put down.|
|Oni Lee||Long time flunky of Lung. He teleports and leaves behind a duplicate that can operate for a short time before dissolving into dust.|
|Bakuda||New member of the ABB. Tinker with a specialty in bombs. When Lung was temporarily incapacitated, she took up the mantle as both leader and recruiter for the ABB.|
Lung made it a mission to conquer and absorb every gang in Brockton Bay with Asian members and many without. Once he had the manpower he needed, the non-Asian gangs were cannibalized for assets, their members discarded.
Once there were no more major gangs in the east end of town to absorb, he began forcing anyone Asian older than twelve and younger than sixty to join or pay tribute. There had been local news reports on it, newspaper articles, and signs in the guidance counselor’s office detailing where people who were targeted in this way could go for help.
On April 11, 2011, Lung was brought into custody by Armsmaster after being forcefully incapacitated by Taylor Hebert and the Undersiders. At the time, the gang numbered between forty or fifty unpowered individuals. Following his arrest, Bakuda took over the gang.
Notable elements of Bakuda's reign include the "recruitment" of all Asians between the ages of 15 and 50, the implantation of remote activated explosive devices into the heads of all ABB members, and the detonation of bombs throughout Brockton Bay to inspire fear. During these events, Oni Lee broke Lung out of prison. There was also a notable conflict between Bakuda and the Undersiders.
Due to Bakuda's extreme actions bringing unwanted attention and destruction, several villain groups including Coil, the Undersiders, the Travelers, Faultline's Crew and the Empire Eighty-Eight created a temporary alliance to dismantle the ABB. As a result of this alliance, both Lung and Bakuda were incarcerated in the Baumann Parahuman Containment Center, and the ABB was dissolved.
