Among the more intelligent species on the planet Earth, humans (pictured here) made up a large percentage of the population.[1]

Population was the number of people that inhabited a place, whether it was a city, nation, countryside, island or even an entire planet.

During the 1970s on the planet known as Earth, there was much worry that because of the population explosion, the world would get overcrowded.

Circa 1983, the population of Metropolis was about eight million.[2]

One man named Doctor Hiram Gulliver went to extreme measures to remedy this problem, when he decided to shrink the population to two-inches tall.[3]

The population of Smallville was 90,000 in 1990.[4]
