Location Details



First appearance



Stryker's Island Penitentiary is the name of Metropolis' largest prison facility, as well as the name of the island on which it sits. It is located in Metropolis' West River south of New Troy. In addition to housing some of the worst offenders that Metropolis has to offer, it is also designed to contain various super-powered individuals as well. Daily tours of the facility are provided to help supplement the rising costs of staff, maintenance and upkeep. [1]


  • As Metropolis is often intended to mirror New York City, so too does Stryker's Island become analogous for the real-world prison facility, Riker's Island. However, the two do exist as separate institutions, as Riker's Island exists within the DC Universe as well.
