I know a lot of people on comic vine live in various place around the world and I was wondering how many of you have seen where you live or where your from in a comic and if you even recognised any landmarks, felt that your home was shown accurately or was just happy to see it in comic book form.
 
As for me Sheffield has never appeared in any comics iv ever read I don't think its even come close as far as i know but i would love for it to happen someone however unlikely it. 
 
  
Sorry if someone's already made a similar topic but i couldn't find one and I was curious so I thought id give it a shot.

My hometown has never appeared in a comic as far as I know but in the conclusion of Jack of Fables, the epic battle took place in Mawn-It-Obah (I think that's how they spelled it) or Manitoba, which is my home province...nothing recognizable though, I still thought it was pretty cool regardless as people not from here who were reading may not have even caught that it was Manitoba since it wasn't spelled that way and it was made out to be some strange land over the border

It would be even better if mine appeared like that so that only i knew or even had to figure it out like yours.

Omaha is supposedly home to the orphanage where Scott Summers spent several years.  It isn't my hometown, but it is where I'm currently residing.

I think I DID see one or two Spider-man stories that were set in New York...But I couldn't swear to it....
 
As for me, the only time I've seen Atlanta in the comics was recently in one of the Fear Itself tie-ins.  But I think it was just a quick panel...

The closest city to mine that has been featured in a comic is Toronto. However in volume 2 of Alpha Flight Department H was pretty much located where my city actually is.

A lot of Avengers have been from my state. The Vision lived there, and the Wasp was from the same state.

Sort of, when the recent Godzilla comic came out, the comicbook store in my town was on their own variant cover.

i was surprise it wasn't raining when they in mine too. I think x-men comics are probably the most likely to see them in since they go all over the place seems they should have done a little more research on yours though putting the golden arches in the wrong place and all :)

@jack16ichigo: Lol no golden arches in the comics lol just the mcdonalds lol was funny i was like "HEY! thats aberdeen lol!"

The place I live has been in a few comics, but nothing significant. A few Avengers Initiative issue were set here. The comic store I go to was in the movie Kick-Ass too. That's about the extent of it though.

I know that almost every marvel superhero/villain lives NY, it's just that I rarely see you using sarcasm or joking. That's all.

It was Stamford, CT. I was born there and lived in CT most of my life.

My city Flint Michigan has never been in comics but we could use the Punisher here from time to time. Terry Crews, Sandra Bernhart, and Micheal Moore is all we have offered the outside world.
