"If you believe that Metropolis is a random collection of
buildings... dead metals and concrete... you're wrong!
"Metropolis - is alive!
"All the dreams, desires, hatred and joys... all the struggles
and triumphs of every living creature - from stone to plant to
animal to man - that has ever dwelled here have left a
resonance - becoming part of the energy-field - the literal
soul - of the city!
"It is a unique soul... a powerful soul. No wonder, then, that
this place drew Superman to her - for their personalities -
their hearts, if you will - vibrate to a similar frequency.
"Superman's presence has fed the hearts and minds of the people
on the island itself - and they, in turn, have fed their hero.
You could say that Superman has been creating Metropolis - and
that Metropolis has been creating him."
