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.

So the self declared Communist writing GI Joe comic got fired. I put together a pitch to try and replace him. Any feed back on it would help.

So I'll give it a couple more days then I'm going to post on Dropping By Star Wars.

Added to Gwenom. Thoughts? Also, feel free to add to it.
JimmyKasche - 1/18/2018 10:18 PM
also trying to think of more for HLS, the Hard Reboot (kinda restart), and WW with a flip... probably not tonight as my normal office chair broke and am using a rather uncomfortable replacement
JimmyKasche - 1/18/2018 10:12 PM
hmm somehow my formatting got deleted entirely instead of fixing after hitting update... trying to fix this mess
Gorel - 1/17/2018 4:54 PM
In the meantime how dark should I go with Strange Appetites?
Gorel - 1/17/2018 4:42 PM
Alright, if you can't, let me know and I'll continue.
ESchorcho - 1/17/2018 1:59 PM
Gorel, life has been pretty busy. I may be able to write a chapter tomorrow but no promises.
