I remember my roommate in university (the first go 'round) was an avid collector of Spawn comics (they were still rather new at the time). At any rate, he was very excited when the Batman/Spawn issue came out, and I had a read. I was thoroughly confused because in the very beginning Batman travels *from* Gotham *to* Manhattan. What next? Going from Yerba Buena to San Francisco? From The Windy City to Chicago? From The Big Smoke to London? How can I get a ticket from The City of Lights to Paris? Is there an Oaktown<->Oakland express?

There's a map somewhere in the DC continuity that shows that Gotham City is between New York and Boston, and Metropolis between New York and Baltimore.
Between New York and Boston? That would put it in Connecticut! According to the DC Atlas, it's in New Jersey, which makes more sense.
Do you think Lisa Loeb thinks that in a better world she'd be a romantic interest for Superman?
