    I have that Atlas. It puts Metropolis in Delaware, if I have my source straight.Report

    • Avatar greginak in reply to Will Truman says:

      Of course in real life there is nothing at all in Delaware except for a section of I-95 that takes you someplace else away from Delaware. They do claim to have a college town called Newark which they pronounce wrong.Report

      Where do all the people come from? At lest NJ has enough people to at east theoretically house a major city. Delaware does not.

      Placing Metropolis in Delaware makes no sense. The city always had a Mid West feel to it. A city surrounded by prairie.Report

    Screw that, Gotham is Philly, and Metropolis is NYC.Report

    • Avatar LeeEsq in reply to Ethan Gach says:

      I can’t see Gotham as Philly. Philly doesn’t have the right reputation. I can see Gotham as Chicago, which kind of has the same reputation but the wrong geographical feel.

      I think this is why why Marvel made a wise decision when they decided to use real world geography as much as possible.Report

    My read was always that Gotham was Chicago at the mouth of the Hudson River, and Metropolis was New York on the Shores of Lake Michigan.Report

    • Avatar NewDealer in reply to Alan Scott says:

      I always thought Gotham=Chicago as well.

      However, Metropolis was also more like Cincinnati or Columbus to me. Maybe even a larger Kansas City. Very Midwestern.

      Though I will almost buy Gotham as Newark, Trenton, Camden, and Hoobken combined.Report

      • Avatar Alan Scott in reply to NewDealer says:

        There’s some fairness in that.

        But Metropolis always has the super-cosmopolitanism and capital of the world feeling that I associate with New York. I’d expect to find The UN Building and the World Trade Center in Metropolis, for example.Report

    But…Gotham is an old nickname for New York City. Why is there even any doubt?Report
