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.

Not going to lie, some of the images I use as reference when writing Rubber Queen are Miss Buechamp.

Does anyone else want to think of Rubber Queen looking like Bianca Beauchamp most of the time?
gothamalleyviper - 2/2/2016 11:03 AM
C.King, posted in message boards, I would think Aquamans smell would be shark level, but only in water. ES+CK, may post a chapter each depending on what time I get done tonight
C.King - 2/2/2016 8:38 AM
Do you think Aquaman has a super sense of smell like a shark? For an episode?
gothamalleyviper - 2/2/2016 7:44 AM
C.King I have an idea for who Hydra should send, it is twisted and borrows from another story train here, ES I had some ideas I will do latter this week
