Do people in LA evacuate buildings in earthquakes or are they so used to them they don't bother?
A couple of ideas:
*Breakout: the Marauders use the evacuation to break a villain out of jail or a mental institution
*Massacre: there's a group of mutants holed up somewhere safe. The Marauders stage the earthquake to flush them out so they can murder them.
*Hostage: the Marauders cause a big earthquake and announce that they can do an even bigger one if they don't get one...million...dollars from the City. Also, investigation reveals that they've bought up a lot of real estate along the fault line.
*Rescue: one of the Marauders has recently converted to a religion based on science fiction novels. The Marauders think he's been brainwashed and are causing the earthquake as a distraction so they can get him out. (Wonder Man should probably be a member of the religion)
