    Batman - Gotham City

    Superman - Metrolopolis.... though i am cheating here as these are D.C superheros. most of the D.C ones are not real Cities.

    Talking about MARVEL heros, am sure XMEN since they are from all around the world , HULK and Punisher may not be from N.Y..

    but i never thought about it before how much of the MARVEL characters are from the East Coast.. is Blade?

    this is because of Stan Lee's love for N.Y i guess

    All the superhero movies you have seen that have been set in NY are property of Marvel. The main office is in NY, when Stan Lee and others were creating their characters, they decided to set them in the city they saw when they looked out of their window. The reason for this was that they thought having to invent entire citys for their hero's to populate would just be a hassle, and since they were very familiar with NY they just thought why not.

    Not all of Marvel's heros are restricted to NY, Iron Man and Hulk being prime examples.

    Marvel has recently opened up their own film division and the first movies to come from their staple will be Iron Man and the new Hulk movie which both are set to be released next year.
    What makes this such good news is that because they are gonna be released under Marvel directly (as opposed to Spider-Man and Fantastic 4 which are both controlled by movie studios since they own the movie rights despite being Marvel characters)They will either feature other Marvel characters or make refference to them. This has already been confirmed for both Iron Man and Hulk.

    I hadn't realised Marvel are going to start making the films themselves, thats great to hear. It'd be interesting for Iron Man to mingle with the Avengers team and the like, maybe that would be a good way to drag Spiderman back from the toilet even it were only a brief cameo.

    Iron Man aka Tony Stark has an office in NY but he also operates in LA and other parts of the country.

    Hulk is not located in just one place, but like one person said before Arizona is a major focus area.

    Thats the movie version, because the had a low budget, they couldn't afford to film in NY, but Punisher is from NY too.

    metropolis and gotham are both facsimiles of new york city, and the answer is nyc is the greatest city in the world and des moines would be a terrible backdrop for a superhero story.

    They are currently setting it up with the Avengers (Marvel) All the movies coming from the Marvel film division are gonna lead up to an Avengers movie.

    Also a Justice League (DC) script has been approved, and according to latino review, they seemed to have found a director for the project. There are rumors circulating that Warner Bros want to make JL a priority over a Superman sequel.

    Supermans creator was from Cleveland and the Daily Planet Building was modeled after a skyscraper downtown. Metropolis to me can represent any big city in America, much like Springfield in the Simpsons represents 'Anytown, USA'.

    Gotham City is its own city, very similar to NYC but also similar to older Northern and Eastern cities in the US.
