DC Universe And Metropolis, Superman Series
Not to be mistaken with the city in Fritz Lang’s 1927 silent film of the same name, Metropolis is home to another famous superhero: Superman. Metropolis also closely resembles New York City and is even referred to as “The Big Apricot,” a nod to the Big Apple. While Frank Miller describes Gotham City as New York City at nighttime, he describes Metropolis as New York City during the day, since Superman mostly conducts his heroism during work hours. Batman writer Dennis O’Neill also compared and contrasted the two, describing Gotham as “Manhattan below 14th Street at 11 minutes past midnight on the coldest night in November, and Metropolis is Manhattan between 14th and 100th Streets on the brightest, sunniest July day of the year.”
Metropolis is made up of six boroughs, which were also modeled after New York’s boroughs. The largest one in Metropolis is New Troy, which resembles Manhattan in its skyline.

Had time for a matte concept painting, started on it yesterday and finished it today. Not very original but it\’s just so much fun doing some personal stuff for once.
