It's a bird, it's a plane ... no, it's a license plate.
CLEVELAND - It's a bird, it's a plane ... no, it's a license plate.
State Representative Bill Patmon announced Monday the release of the "Truth, Justice and the American Way" license plate that honors the creation of Superman, not on Krypton, but in Cleveland. It features the Superman "S" logo on it.
Patmon showed off the plate in front of Jerry Siegel's former house on Kimberly Avenue in Cleveland. Siegel and his friend Joe Shuster created Superman from the home when they were teenagers 80 years ago. They then sold the superhero to what would later become DC Comics.
"It's a natural tribute to the two young men who, teenagers really, who put it together," said Irv Fine, a cousin to Jerry Siegel.
