List Rules Only cities, towns, or places that show up in Comic Books. Preferably not comic adaptations of other things.

What makes a comic book location cool? Not liveability, that's for sure. I don't think I'd want to live in Hell's Kitchen (or Murderworld!), for example. But is it gritty and cool and dripping with atmosphere? Yes.

These awesome cities, planets, and universes are characters themselves in the comics, helping to create a full-bodied and colorful story. Which place is your favorite? Is there one that you'd prefer to live in over another? Vote for your faves and feel free to add any that I've missed, or re-rank them in your own list! 

What is your favorite comic book universe? Your favorite city in comic books?
