Belle Reve is a prison facility used to contain metahuman criminals. It was also once used as a base of operations for Task Force X and the Suicide Squad. Located in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana near St. Roch, Belle Reve has been the epicenter of several sinister attacks. The New God known as Darkseid (as well as his Female Furies) invaded the prison, and it was also the target of a former government agent named Major Force.
- Belle Reve comes from the play A Streetcar Named Desire. It is the family plantation in Laurel, Mississippi where Blanche and Stella Dubois grew up. Belle Reve roughly translates from Cajun French as "Beautiful Dream". However, as "rêve" is masculine, the proper adjective would be "beau".
- In the WB/CW television series Smallville, Belle Reve is occasionally seen as an asylum-hospital used to treat individuals who have been exposed to green meteor rock.
- Mentioned as destroyed in the Kingdom Come universe.
