Dubbed the "City of Tomorrow" by its residents, Metropolis holds the promise of opportunity which is a model for the nation, but with opportunity comes crime.

Although not as notorious as its coastal neighbor Gotham City, it is home to some of the most dangerous high-tech criminals and criminal organizations in the world.

Always in a state of change, Metropolis has one constant, the protection of the worlds greatest hero, Superman.
