It seems to me that most of the Super Heroes of the day are based in the East Coast. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Batman was in Gotham, in Batman Forever there is a scene with the Statue of Liberty. Spider-Man is based in New York. Superman is in Metropolis whis is somewhere close to Kansas from what the WB's TV show Smallville has hinted. The X-Men are also based in New York. [Big Grin]

Metropolis is meant to be analogous to Chicago, in the same way that Gotham is a stand-in for New York.

It's not as clear-cut as that, Tom.

Great link Intelligence3, the stuff that site has on the green lantern is quite extensive, and ammuseing.

The Green Lantern Oath
Green Lantern is famous for the oath he recites when he charges his ring. Originally, the oath was simple: "...and I shall shed my light over dark evil.

For the dark things cannot stand the light, The light of the Green Lantern!" In the mid-1940s, this was revised by science fiction writer Alfred Bester into the form that became famous during the Hal Jordan era: "In brightest day, in blackest night

No evil shall escape my sight

Let those who worship evil's might

Beware my power, Green Lantern's light!" The word "blackest" is often replaced with "darkest" to avoid racist connotations.

It has since been established that each Green Lantern has his, her, or its own oath. Notable oaths include that of Jack T. Chance : "You who are wicked and evil and mean

I'm the nastiest bastard you EVER have seen!

Come one, come all, put up a fight

I'll whup your asses with Green Lantern's Light!" and that of Rot Lop Fan, a Green Lantern whose species lacks sight, and thus has no concepts of brightness, day, darkness, night, color, light, or lanterns: "In loudest din or hush profound

My ears hear evil's slightest sound

Let those who toll out evil's knell

Beware my power, the F-Sharp Bell!"
