    Default Living in Metropolis vs. living in Gotham

    Which city would you move your family in if you were inside a comic book universe? Before you mention the villains running around and causing chaos, you have Bats and Supes watching over you, so you are safe as long as they are around.

    Plus, you get to see your favorite villain or hero fight, just make sure they don't see you lol.

    Metropolis, absolutely. It could be fun living in a futuristic city.

    I'd only consider Gotham if they made it more like the Vegas/Atlantic City type of thing like in Morrison's B&R.

    Metropolis. Because it looks like a place you can actually live in, unlike Gotham where it looks like you can't go by your newspaper without being murdered by a killer clown.
    Not to mention the whole "Gotham makes people evil" that Snyder introduced. No way I let my kid be anywhere near that place.

    As a single guy? Gotham. Raising a family? Metropolis

    Metropolis easily

    - Cleaner City
    - I imagine the crime rate is lower

    Metropolis would have to worry about Alien Invaders and Giant Robots

    Gotham has the murderous clowns and other cut throats

    Definitely Metropolis , bright and sunny. Gotham , dark and grimy and you can't go out at night.

    Maybe Gotham because I'm a night person, and it seems to be night in Gotham a good 17 hours a day. On the other hand there is that whole the city is one giant slum and there is a constant threat of getting killed thing.

    Metropolis, of course. Metropolis is a bright city, always shining thanks to Superman and his positive state of mind. You have to be mad to live in Gotham, a dark and sad city, ruled by a psychotic like Batman, a man always crying because of his past !

    Metropolis, obviously.

    Hmm... rather interesting take. I don't know WHAT Snyder's take is, but it's not exactly original...

    Bill Willingham did it way back in 2005 with Shadowpact, and some "Doctor Gotham" -40 000-year old bad-guy being the source of evil.
    But alas, he actually only built that on the work of previous writers that had alluded to dark sorcerous pasts for Gotham. ( Peter Milligan and Alan Moore being two of them)

    I myself prefer Grant Morrison's take on it - Gotham City, was founded trough the psychic machinations of the EVIL SPIRIT OF DARKSEID(!) post Batman shooting him, as a way to torment and trap the Batman!

    So there you have it, the God of Evil, Mighty Darkseid himself, is the reason why Gotham is evil. In essence, this means that Darkseid caused the deaths of the Waynes, which inadvertantly created the Batman, and set the stage for Darkseid's own down-fall... It's all on himself, he's only got himself to blame. Which is natural, because he is evil personified.

    It could not be any other way.
