Every urban centre is called Something City. Sometimes the City part is in a language other than English, but nobody’s fooled.
Gotham City is a festering cesspool. No one wants to live there.
Star City is a festering cesspool. No one wants to live there.
Central City does not appear to be a festering cesspool, but give it time.
National City has palm trees and a desert so it’s probably in California, but Google says DC’s blase about the real-world location of every single Something City in their repertoire so who the hell knows.
You can travel from one City to any of the others in about half an hour because DC is also blase about where all these places are in relation to one another.
*long list of facts about Batman*
*slightly less long list of facts about Superman*
Wonder Woman is awesome. Everybody loves Wonder Woman.
Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy are awesome. Everybody ships them.
Hawkman is an asshole. Fuck Hawkman.
Except maybe Hawkman is awesome in the comics? I dunno. People on the internet seem to like him.
*list of DC characters who have earned my unquestioned love by appearing in SANDMAN, even if they aren’t actually all that great*
Sometimes Vertigo counts. Sometimes it doesn't.
DC messes up a lot. There’s a countdown clock and all.
Everyone/thing is green. Lanterns. Arrows. Strength-sapping meteors. Martians. Etc. Etc.
The world is full of aliens, many of whom are either green or vulnerable to green things.
Superpowered people who are not aliens are called metahumans.
Bizarro no have good grammar. Everything opposite in Bizarro World.
Everyone’s gotta do their time as a Space Cop.
The Legion of Superheroes is fucking awesome (as seen through a twenty-year-old filter) and also full of Space Cops (unless I’ve misremembered that).
The Justice League and the Justice Society are on different Earths, not the same one like I always thought. One of them has a space station. Maybe both of them have space stations, as per the Space Cop rule.
There are lots of different Earths as well as lots of different planets. These Earths interact on at least a yearly basis.
The Teen Titans are cool beans.
Some people look like Skrulls, but they are not Skrulls.
Everyone's got a superpowered pet.
There are so many abandoned warehouses. So. Many.
