When the idea and reality merge to create a world of its own such a creative output can enthrall our senses and transport us to a parallel plane of existence. Giving shape to this hypothetical world and making it as credible as the real one is only possible through this exceptional sorcery of comic literature. It is believed that the imaginary city of Metropolis is a comical simulation of the American, New York City and was fabricated in order to give a hometown to the species of super heroes and paving way for the genre of metropolis comics.
Metropolis, the hometown of our favourite action hero Superman is drafted with precision and detail corresponding to the real-life landmarks and attributes of the actual New York City to endow this imaginary realm with as much tenability and reliability as possible. This integrity of context and unique semblance of the comic backdrop with a de facto township builds trustworthiness within the readers and consequently they unconsciously start to identify with these elusive and fictive characters. In fact the illusory Gotham city, the resident township of Batman, yet another classical comic action superhero is also believed to be modeled on one of the prominent areas of New York City. These figmental twin cities are vested with characteristic and typical social structures like the institutions and equivalent representations of administration, law and justice, industry, media and research among others. The mayors, news editors, social life, the beliefs, emotions, follies and lifestyle of the civilians are all lifelike barring the supernatural extraordinariness of the metro hero and his exemplary battle with the sinister and diabolical villains.
This metropolis comic tradition has now become an independent industrial entity exploiting the comic sensationalism not only in books but also through the mediums of animated visuals like films and videos, toys, effigies, gears and riddles among others which can be accessed and purchased through the versatile platforms of comic book stores online. The name Metropolis thus has now evolved as a signature brand in the entertainment industry.
