California is a U.S. State within the continental United States and is located on the Western coast of the country. It is the third largest state by area and the most populous state.

In film Edit

Not of This Earth Edit

Being such a large, prosperous and highly populated state, California is teeming with lively, frenetic and bizarre events as it relates to film and other media. For example, back in the 1980s, an alien came to Earth, took on human form and began killing people, electrocuting them and stealing their blood in the hopes of finding a way to save his home world. [1]

In television Edit

The 4400 Edit

The character of Maia Rutledge and her parents, Victor and Mary were both from Crescent City, California. [2]

ALF Edit

California was the home of the Tanner family, which consisted of Willie Tanner, his wife Kate Tanner, daughter Lynn Tanner, and son Brian Tanner. A alien from Melmac named Gordon Shumway crash-landed his space ship through the roof of the Tanner's garage. The family took him in, but had to keep his existence a secret. Shumway, who came to be known as Alf, proved to be a fun-loving, though difficult house-guest, who had little regard for the Tanners' personal possessions, with the exception of their cat, Lucky, whom he always tried to eat.

Star Trek Edit

Although little of the Star Trek mythos takes place on the planet Earth, California is one of the more notable Earth-based locales. Starfleet Command and Starfleet Academy are both located in the city of San Francisco.

During the late 23rd century, Admiral James T. Kirk had an apartment in San Francisco. [3][4]

The character of Tom Paris, one of the cast regulars from Star Trek: Voyager was born in Portola Valley, California.

Supergirl Edit

The CBS television series Supergirl takes place in National City in California. One of the major points of interest in National City is CatCo Worldwide Media, which was founded by former Daily Planet reporter Cat Grant and is one of the most powerful mass media entities in the country. Another important entity in the city is Lord Technologies, founded by Maxwell Lord. National City is also where the Department of Extranormal Operations maintains a central base of operations. The D.E.O. has a top-secret underground bunker maintained by Hank Henshaw. Alex Danvers works there as an agent, and her sister, Kara Danvers, assists the DEO on a regular basis.

National City gained no small measure of notoriety of 2015 when they became known as the home of their very own superhero - Supergirl. It was Cat Grant who capitalized on the young hero's sudden appearance in the city, and immediately began marketing her and branding her as "Supergirl".

Since the arrival of Supergirl in National City, there has been a steady increase in threats of an alien and/or metahuman nature. National City has served as the battleground for fights between Supergirl and villains such as Vartox, Reactron, and the Red Tornado android.

Viper Edit

In the near-future, Metro City becomes the target of a rampant crime wave, requiring the establishment of a specialized task force to enforce law and order. Joe Astor, Julian Wilkes and Franklin "Frankie X" Waters protect the city with their technologically-advanced Dodge Viper RT/10, which possessses morphing capabilities, allowing it to transform into the Defender armored assault vehicle. [5]

In comics Edit

Green Lantern Edit

In the Green Lantern mythos, one of California's major cities is Coast City (an analog of present day Los Angeles). Coast City is the home of the Jordan family, which consists of airplane test pilot Hal Jordan. One of the major businesses found in Coast City is Ferris Aircraft. Hal Jordan worked for Ferris Aircraft and was on the job on that fateful day when he discovered a dying alien named Abin Sur, who bestowed upon him a weapon of unimaginable power. Hal donned the power ring of the Green Lantern and became a member of an organization of intergalactic peace officers known as the Green Lantern Corps. In later years, Coast City was destroyed by the Cyborg Superman, but was eventually rebuilt. Coast City, and many of it's surrounding cities became a pivotal battlefield during the Sinestro Corps War.
