(Redirected from Keystone City)

This page lists the locations in the DC Universe, the shared universe setting of DC Comics.


Correctional facilities[edit]

Industrial sites[edit]

  • Ace Chemicals: A chemical plant in Gotham City where the Joker supposedly originated.[13] Ace Chemicals is present in several films and TV shows: Batman: The Animated Series, Batman (1989; renamed as Axis Chemicals), The Flash episode "Back to Normal", and Gotham as the site of Jeremiah Valeska turning into the Joker. In the DC Extended Universe film Suicide Squad, flashbacks show Joker convinced Harley Quinn to bathe in the same chemicals as he did. Following their break up, a drunken Harley destroyed Ace in Birds of Prey.[14]

  • Daggett Industries: A pharmaceutical company founded and owned by Roland Daggett. It appears in Batman: The Animated Series and The Dark Knight Rises, via John Daggett. A version of it later appears in the comics.
  • Ferris Aircraft: Coast City aerospace company originally founded and owned by Carl Ferris and Conrad Bloch[17] and now run by his daughter, Carol Ferris. It appears in other media like Justice League: The New Frontier, Green Lantern, and Green Lantern: First Flight.
  • GothCorp: A company based in Gotham City, founded and owned by Ferris Boyle, targeted by ex-employee Victor Fries. The company is seen in Batman: The Animated Series and in the Arkhamverse.
  • Steelworks: Located in Metropolis, founded and owned by John Henry Irons.
  • Kord Industries: An industrial firm founded and owned by Ted Kord. Kord Industries is mentioned in several episodes of Arrow and seen in Smallville episode "Booster".
  • LexCorp: An international multi-corporation founded and owned by Lex Luthor.
  • Lord Technologies: Founded and owned by Maxwell Lord in the Arrowverse. In Wonder Woman 1984, Black Gold Cooperative, also known as simply Black Gold, was an oil cooperative founded by Max Lord during the Cold War with Simon Stagg.
  • Rathaway Industries: Founded by Osgood Rathaway, father of the Pied Piper.
  • Queen Industries: An international corporation founded and owned by Robert and Moira Queen and later run by their son, Oliver Queen.
  • Stagg Enterprises: A research and development firm in genetics research founded by Simon Stagg.
  • S.T.A.R. Labs: Brief for Scientific and Technological Advanced Research Laboratories, a place of scientific research on metahuman studies located in various facilities. It "quickly became a mainstay of the pre-Flashpoint DC universe, acting as a prison for metahuman menaces and a medical resource for injured or mysteriously afflicted Super Heroes."[18] In The Flash TV series the S.T.A.R. Labs facility of Central City functions as the headquarter for the team around the titular hero. Perry Dantzler compares it to the Arrow Cave from the Arrow TV series, where a "dark, secretive atmosphere" with "solid walls and dim lighting" fits the focus on crime fighting. S.T.A.R. Labs, in contrast, is a bright space illuminated by natural light, with "white walls and gleaming equipment" designed to "remind viewers that the characters in the lab [...] are primarily scientists first and superhero teammates second." This emphasis on science influences the direction of the show: "The entirety of S.T.A.R. Labs reflects a need for uncovering the truth". S.T.A.R. Labs is a "high-tech space" which through the combination and application of knowledge empowers "the abilities of superheroes to flourish and improve", a "material space" where "superheroes' identities and abilities are shaped" through technology.[19]
  • Wayne Enterprises: An international multi corporation owned by Bruce Wayne.
