ARFD is a DC Comics roleplaying forum that takes place just before the crossover event "Flashpoint" which was published in 2011. Anything leading up to this point is considered canonical on our forum and part of the narrative backdrop and context of the DCU and the characters therein. Anything that occurs after it (including the New-52 reboot and subsequent Rebirth reboot) are non-canonical and have no influence or presence on this forum.

New York City... the most known of all American cities. It only goes to reason that such an important town has garnered the attention of super heroes and villains alike, some of which even settled their headquarters here.
A literal melting pot of all the world's cultures and people, Metropolis is called 'the city of tomorrow' with good reason. It is a bright beacon of hope with the most innovative forms of transportation and technology. Some remark that Metropolis 'never gets dark' and with Superman protecting the city, criminals have to be very cunning to make progress.
Gotham City is dark and muggy, a breeding ground for crime, gangs and the criminally insane. With so many villains threatening the very existence of Gotham, it's fairly logical that Batman, along with a whole host of protégé have dedicated their lives to protecting it.
The Justice League's Watchtower is the seat of the League's power. Their headquarters. Orbiting the earth in space, the tower is constructed from the most advanced technologies of all races, alien and human.
