LMC2 was one of the first supergiant shells in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC) to be identified, based on the detection of long, curved Hα filaments extending over 900 pc (Goudis & Meaburn 1978). LMC 2 is located to the east of the active star formation region south of 30 Doradus. LMC 2 is a spectacular supergiant shell in the LMC, having the most coherent filamentary structure and the highest X-ray surface brightness. As shown in Fig. 1, the diffuse X-ray emission from LMC 2 is bounded by the Hα filaments in the north and east. A bright X-ray arc is seen in the southwest quadrant, extending from N 158 and N 159.
