Metropolis Overview

Metropolis is a small community of about 6,500 population just across the Ohio river from Paducah, Kentucky.
In 1972 when DC Comics named Metropolis the homtown of Superman it gave this small community a major boost. They installed a huge statue (in full color) next to the courthouse and have created a Superman museum on Main Street very nearby.
There are no theaters in town but between Superman and Harrah's casino tourism is the major industry.
