    There is a beautiful map in Superman Returns on Lex's Yacht. if you pause the scene just right and zoom in you can see the relative positions of Gotham and Metropolis are New York and Jersey City. Gotham is the more sprawling one but Metropolis is the more advanced one. The fictional cities is what #2 is so everybody is reading #2 wrong

    edit: Okay guess what I found: Atlas of The DC Universe apparently based on their research New York City still exists in DC-verse, Gotham is apparently located in the far south of New Jersey (which makes sense, Gotham is much more Jersey-like anyways) and Metropolis is in the far south of Delaware (Strange place but okay) unfortunately the map is a bit hard to read and there is now mention of some of the newer stuff like Bludhaven (One of my fav cities)

    edit 2: and just for bonus, a map of Gotham

    Any of the good actors I wold have picked are getting too old for the role ...

    But Incredible Hulk features the super soldier serum .... (hence Red Hulk Roth)

    Hey ... maybe they'll give the roll to Shia La Bouf ... lol...
    There has actually been some talk about getting Matthew McConaughey for the role, but nothing firm yet.

    I'm actually rereading the series right now as I was given a couple books from the newest series and wanted to go back and reread them from the beginning. I should be done sometime next year I think. LOL

    Check out Wikipedia entries for Gotham and Metropolis. It breaks down their locations and current "official" status of each.

    well in general this topic might just become a topic for Superhero maps and discussing them and such. revolved around my world of course, I think I'm going with real world just because it's more familiar but making some slight changes so when I make it I'll post my world map and then I'll start doing regional and city maps.

    Wip WIP UPDATE: Placement of Silva State

    Silva State is a large stretch of water just outside of the North American Basin, Silva Island, the largest in the chain, lies about 750 miles off the coast. It is an island somewhat smaller the the city of Tokyo. The entire island is covered in city, making Silva City the second largest in the world in land area. It is noted however that Silva City was the first metropolis to begin developing multi-leveled Construction and is the most developed, and all but the suburban sub-city is made up of skyscrapers. So technically Silva City is the largest city in urban mass and population. The other islands are very small and are almost completely undeveloped, they are unique however in that they are climatically controlled with each individual island a different life zone. Silva Island is connected directly to New York City by way of Bullet Train, which runs underneath the ocean all the way from Grand Central Station to Silva Station, making it the first Oceanic Train ever to be built.
