I had this idea for a poster for my office, a map featuring the cities of the DC Universe (my personal preference). While I was sketching it out, I found myself thinking about thinking about whether I'd rather see the comic cities take the place of actual cities or as their own cities all together. And for the record, I know that the cities are (as far as I know) all independent of actual cities.
So what is the general consensus? Do you like having independent cities? Or do you like the idea of Metropolis as New York City, Star City as Los Angeles, Coast City as San Francisco, stuff like that?
