What would a comic book superhero be, without having a city to protect and operate from? Though Superman was brought up in the fictional town of Smallville, the equally-fictional Metropolis would be the city where he would find his true calling, and even love.

New York city, with its towering buildings and dark alleys, is the perfect setting for Spider-Man to fight crime in.
