Powers/Abilities/Functions: Butler Hospital is a local Detroit, Michigan hospital equipped with the finest medical staff and supplies available to treat the sick and injured.

(Great Lakes Avengers I#2 (fb) - BTS) - Butler Hospital was a medical facility located in Detroit, Michigan.

(Great Lakes Avengers I#2) - At Butler Hospital, Goodness Silva sat near the bed of her bandaged and unresponsive brother Lucky as he recovered from injuries suffered during the destruction of their home by supervillains. When Lucky began to transform into his animal form, Goodness attempted to hide the transformation from the incoming nurse but the nurse was already aware of Lucky's powers and wondered if everything was okay. Goodness was surprised the nurse was aware of Lucky's powers but the nurse assured Goodness that Lucky wasn't the first werewolf she had treated as she reconnected Lucky's IV tube. As the nurse continued to check up on Lucky, Goodness overheard a news report in which city councilman Dick Snerd proclaimed the villains destroying rough neighborhood as heroes for paving the way for progress. Angry that her home was one of those destroyed, Goodness departed Lucky's room and the nurse asked where Goodness was going, to which Goodness grimly said "Downtown."

(Great Lakes Avengers I#4 (fb) - BTS) - Chronic smoker Walter was hospitalized at Butler Hospital and despite his hospitalization, he often tried to sneak cigarettes, prompting one of the nurses to threaten to shove the cigarettes up Walter's posterior the next time she caught him sneaking cigarettes.

(Great Lakes Avengers I#4) - Walter ventured out of Butler Hospital in an attempt to smoke cigarettes and before he could actually smoke one, his nurse caught him and snatched the cigarettes away, reminding him that cigarettes had put him in the Hospital to begin with. Walter argued that he was a dead man anyway and wanted to enjoy his remaining days but their argument was interrupted when the heroic Flatman's Flatmobile vehicle drove up and dumped the bloody form of corrupt city councilman Dick Snerd onto the street outside Butler Hospital. The nurse yelled for the Flatmobile to return as it drove away and when Walter appeared shocked to see the injured Snerd, the nurse remarked that it was going to be a long night.

(Great Lakes Avengers I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Having heard about Dick Snerd's injuries from those at the Hospital and suspecting his sister Goodness' involvement, Lucky Silva snuck into Snerd's room to investigate. Seeing Snerd's injuries up close while giving Snerd a "Tito Frehley" (using a permanent marker to draw on his face), Lucky recognized Goodness' handiwork and left Butler Hospital, still in bandages, to find Goodness.

(Great Lakes Avengers I#5) - Having discovered the "Tito Frehley" on Dick Snerd's face, a nurse at Butler Hospital frantically called for a doctor, who proclaimed Snerd's look to be the best "Tito Frehley" he had ever seen. The doctor then asked the nurse to hand him his phone so the photo of Snerd's "Tito Frehley" could go viral.
