Superman street signs go up in Cleveland neighborhood

CLEVELAND - Street signs featuring that familiar red and gold "S" on Superman's chest have gone up in the Cleveland neighborhood where the Man of Steel's two creators once lived.

The Plain Dealer newspaper reports the signs are on utility poles at intersections near the boyhood homes of the late Superman artists Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. They were high school classmates in Cleveland when they first came up with the idea for their superhero in 1933.

At an intersection close to where Shuster's family lived, the signs show the real names of the two streets, plus the nicknames "Joe Shuster Lane" and "Lois Lane."
