Cleveland Hopkins Airport To Get Superman Statue

Cleveland Home To SupermanThis summer a statue of Superman will greet arriving passengers at Hopkins International Airport. The statue will be part of a display touting Cleveland as the birthplace of Superman.

Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created the superhero in Glenville in the 1930s. For years now, there has been a small but persistent local movement to commemorate Cleveland as the birthplace of the well known comic book hero.

Cleveland, and the creation of Superman, was set as a backdrop for Brad Meltzer’s The Book of Lies

While most people do not associate Superman with Cleveland (a rock history type exhibit might be better), framing the city in a positive light to guests and local travelers is a big plus. In other words anything that helps make a good first impression on an incoming traveler is a good thing for Cleveland. Its not uncommon to hear someone voice disgust with a city and when followed up on, they’ve based their impression on a negative experience of that city’s airport.
