Metropolis has suffered from a series of recent earth tremors that have puzzled geologists. “Metropolis is not on any known fault lines,” says Dr. Rufus Aynsley, Ph.D., of S.T.A.R. labs. “So the number and intensity of the tremors the city has experienced remain a mystery.” Some conspiracy theorists have pointed the finger at LexCorp and its telluric current experiments, but a spokeman for the company has vigorously denied any such connection. “Nonsense,” was Lex Luthor’s only comment.
