Metropolis, was discovered in 1542 by the Italian navigator Vincenzo Gnanatti. The first settlement was established by the Algonquin Native American tribe but was later occupied by the Dutch in 1634. It quickly evolved into a major seaport and later served as a crucial military location during the Revolutionary War. In 1775, the Daily Planet newspaper was founded. In the late 1800's, the influx of immigration generated violent ethnic riots. In the Great Depression era, was ravaged and several parts of the city never recovered, including the Suicide Slums. In 1847, Hob's Bay was the undisputed mercantile center. The city of Metropolis soon became informally dominated by the Luthor family, all visionaries of the future. Because of this, its most common nickname was "the City of Tomorrow." Thus the Luthor's technology built most of it.

Overall, Metropolis is looked upon as an advanced, warmer, cleaner, and wealthier city than most in America. The largest borough in Metropolis is New Troy. It is home to the newspaper Daily Planet, the prominent skyscraper Emperor Building, LexCorp Tower, and Stryker's Island Penitentiary. The most well-known superhuman resident of the city is Superman. He has since protected the city from organized crime, super villains, and an occassional invasion of Dinosaur Men.
