The Superman Era

Since the arrival of Superman, Metropolis' maintenance budgets had quadrupled due to the collateral damage from his battles.[2]

In 2010, Superman prevented a nuclear meltdown in Metropolis from the Bakerline Nuclear Power Station, saving millions of people.[3]

In 2015, Lex Luthor turned Earth's sun red in an act of eco-terrorism directed at Superman, inducing mass destruction and panic within the city, among other places.[4]

In November 2015, Metropolis hosted the ceremony for the Siegel Prize for Women in Media, honoring Cat Grant.[5]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

Some civilians from Metropolis might had been among the 3 billion to survived the Anti-Monitor's attack on Earth-38, which resulted in the complete destruction of the city along with the rest of Earth-38, thanks to Oliver Queen's sacrifice.[8] However after Earth-1 was destroyed, what remained of their citizens was killed by the Antimatter wave.[9]
