Superman was created by American writer Jerry Siegel and Canadian-born American artist Joe Shuster in 1932 while both were living in Cleveland, Ohio. Superman is a cultural icon that transcends comic books. We want the State of Ohio to recognize Superman and his creators and celebrate Superman's roots in the Buckeye state.

      I believe credit should go to the originator of Superman Unfortunately, too often, unsuspecting parties or families are manipulating not understanding that unscrupulous greedy individuals are ready to seize a legacy that belongs to rightful property ownersWhy should they be able to do this with no accountability. Please do something about this now!!!!!

      Superman is a culturanl icon. As the birthplace of aviation, Ohio should claim the "native son" that "really" could fly!

      Superman set the stage -- but we can all be super-heros. His true strength is not just the physical, but that of character. We can each follow his example and steel our own character to stand up for truth, justice and the American Way.
