WS METROPOLIS DESTROYED - MILLIONS DEAD EXPLODES IN DOWNTOWN METROPOLIS I MILLIONS DEAD I THREAT ALERT RED I NUCLEAR BOMB EXPLOm
in Ben Wilson's "Metropolis" there is an astute point that there is a
Christian fixation on the immorality of cities and their (assumed) inevitable destruction.
This was inherited by Americans and melded with the anti-urbanism of the industrial era.
Emily Badger @emilymbadger
A question that has been nagging at me for a while:
Covid didn't kill cities. Why were many people so eager to believe it would?

Then built on with decades of
xenophobia and racism that produced our uniquely anti-urban attitudes. A wide range of Americans will take any opportunity to prove that the city is dead, it is our dominant narrative that the city must be wiped clean from the earth.

The New York Times spent most of the early pandemic gazing lovingly at
suburbs and declaring that the havoc of pandemic could not happen there.

RP Starter Plot: A Neon Tango
Chicleton City, and what a cesspool of a metropolis it is. From the ultra-wealthy corpo oligarchs who rule the entire region with their
4, pocketed politicians and bought-for police force, to the impoverished slum residents who wake up everyday not knowing whether they'll be able to scavenge enough dumpsters to avoid starvation. The city centre is nigh- impossible to enter without having a connection to the elite and the surrounding favela districts are plagued with brutal gang violence and syndicate disputes. The corporate magnates funnel thousands into inciting civil strife in order to scare the people from taking their dissatisfactions to the streets, their /chips/ having financed many illegal arm dealings, bombing attempts and residual pogroms of civil rights activists. But of course, the public never finds out about these shadow games of the elite as the bribed media /forgets about/ the details.
What the media has no shortage of, however, are reports on the self- proclaimed freedom-fighter, labelled terrorist and wanted criminal, who is only known as /The Spectre/. Nobody knows who he really is, only ever seen wearing his long-cloak and purple-lit helmet (image to the right), or where he came from, only that he has been targeting corpo poverty, setting off explosions in several factories, assassinating corrupt officials, sabotaging their logistic networks and generally causing billions of damages to their profits. The CCPD has issued a
100,000 chip bounty on the supposed
/man/, painting a proper target on his back for mercenaries and bounty hunters to go after.
Little did Spectre know, that tonight, he'd tango with one of the world's high-end assassins. The best of the best. The apex predator, sent out to catch another of their kind. Whomever, and for whatever reason, this mysterious contract killer would be provided with intel on the Spectre's immediate location and with only a single instruction -
Terminate. Currently, the alleged terrorist was setting up his sniper-scope on a
_ rooftop of a derelict warehouse building, neighbouring an enormous office complex that stretched far-up into the skies. Lying down in his rugged rain- coat, the motionless man peered through the masking helmet over his face and waited for his target to arrive at their workplace, not knowing that it was all a set-up. His breathing was muffled away by the dripping of rain that soaked him
Rules: through and through, but he didn't seem

Everyone on
Twitter making fun of Lois Lane for marrying
Clark Kent
Metropolis citizens
defending their
beloved
reporters
(Even tho they're right)
"Saying Lois Lane is way out of her husband Clark Kent's league just because she's dated Superman before is actually incredibly disrespectful and hurtful to both of them when they're clearly very much in love and are equally skilled and accomplished writers"

In this reality, based on the video game of injustice,
Tim Drake was new member of the Teen Titans as the Red Robin at the time the Joker's nuclear explosion went off in Metropolis. The Titans tracked down Superboy to the Fortress of Solitude, where he attempted to stop Superman. Tim tries lifting the
Phantom Zone projector, but cannot because
Superman placed a safety cap that weighs 100 tons.
When Superboy is mortally wounded, Tim and the other Titans are sent by Superman to the Phantom
