Tales of Justice
The “City of Tomorrow” is located in Pennsylvania, on either side of the Lackawanna river where it flows out into the Atlantic Ocean. It’s the second-largest city in the United States and home to the superhero team known as Wyldfire and the mysterious vigilantes, Silverwing and the Shadow.
Metropolis was founded in 1634 by Dutch colonists outside of nearby Fort Hobb. They dubbed the location, De Vries Village, after well-known fur trader Paul De Vries. Not long after the town’s founding, local natives felt they had been short-changed by De Vries in their trade for the land the town and fort sat on. Just as they prepared to attack, a rain of meteorites almost destroyed the fort, town and the nearby native villages. Both sides agreed the ‘rain of fire’ was a warning from the heavens and maintained peaceful relations there after.
