Metropolis, Gotham City, New York

by C.King - 4/21/2013 1:36 PM

 There location varies.

 Usually Metropolis is in New York state, but some times Delaware (where it is across the Delaware Bay as Sister city to New Jersey's Gotham). In the 70's, the cities were both adjacent to New York, across the bay from each other. It is also been placed in Kansas, as well.

 Gotham is usually placed in New Jersey, but also replaced Chicago in the Nolan fics, and in Connecticut in Young Justice.

 Both Cities have been place in the same place as New York in different stories and media.

 Also the distance between Metropolis and Gotham varies from hundred of miles from each other, to sister cities across the Delaware Bay as said in the 70's.

 Basically due to different writers, there is an inconsistency to location.

 The best bet is either they are two cities located close to New York some how, or use the seventies Delaware/New Jersey Version as it allows for some consistency.

Once in an old commentary track Metropolis was originally supposed to be Niagara City right by Niagara Falls.  Originally it was Cleaveland in the first comics.  Gotham was literally NYC for the first year and a half or so.  I will post a note in the side bar of which ever story the information becomes pertinent too.

Oh man, so sorry that took so long. I hope Anzaleth is still interested in contributing, the last two weeks have been insane.

A little bit more of the Reed Richards strand of the SSSL/latex stripper storyline. All comments and contributions are welcome! :)

gothamalleyviper, I'd like to see some more Rubber Queen. I'm loving what is happening with Selina, especially.

Not really an idea for here, but what if Batman was forced to take custody of Helen Wayne-Kyle and Damean Wayne-alghul at the same time? A 13YO street Princess and a 13YO pycho prince. Could that be a funny series?
