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.

And the first chapter of the story has been brought over. Now we see where it goes on here.

Helen-Troy, I understand how you feel. RL politics always brings out the most polarizing elements. Most of the writers I've had contact with here would take it as intended, but there are FAR more readers and where They might take it is where the s--- s

Extreme1, people put stories from here on other sites a lot. If it's your story, there's no question you can put it where you want. If it's someone else's, I'd ask first and add a line at the top stating who wrote it & where it was from, but it's up to

Question: would it be ok to bring a story (well the first chapter) from another site? I've got a long dead story from BE's Addventures that I'd like to see this place's take on.

site, the bad guys don't lose often lol. Not sure if I'll add anything, but, if it keeps going, I'll keep checking it out.

Helen-Troy Understandable, it read to me as satire. But, I also think this particular election hit on some really deep schisms so people are understandably raw right now (As a Mexican-American, it's been a fucking nightmare). Also, LBR, on this sit

Aye. But somehow he is the Luck one who gets what he wants so he is the Hero. I see him only as possible funny side Char
Helen-Troy - 1/23/2017 4:05 AM
Guys I'm a little surprised by reaction to this. It's satire, with the possibility to go two ways (let's face it, I hardly made him a "hero") and as for politics, this place is hardly PC at all!
colleem - 1/23/2017 1:58 AM
Aye. Besides the fact that it was trump it was a very good chapter.
extreme1 - 1/23/2017 12:04 AM
ESchorcho, agreed.
