Top 10 Cities from the World of Comic Books

Citing the important role they tend to play in storylines, the Architects' Journal lists off the top 10 cities from comic books.

The number 10 city is Radiant City, from the comic Mister X. Radiant City was "designed to be a utopia, but its subliminal design flaws are driving its citizenry insane. Mister X is one of the creators of the city, who has returned from exile to repair it and in doing so goes up against a corrupt government, the mob and other antagonists."

Others include Inca City from Tintin, Batman's Gotham City, and, of course, Superman's Metropolis.
