Superman coming to CLE in new concourse display

By Brian Mitchell

February 2, 2012

It’s a bird…it’s a plane…it’s a giant Superman display at Cleveland’s Hopkins International Airport.

Recently, the Cleveland City Council approved a proposal allowing for the installation of a permanent Superman display in the airport’s lower concourse.

The display will also honor two Cleveland teenagers, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, who created Superman in the 1930’s. The super hero arrangement will feature a larger than life statue of the Man of Steel accompanied by wall art reading, “Cleveland’s greatest hero,” and, “Did you know Superman was born in Cleveland?”

The project is expected to cost between $40,000-$50,000 dollars. Organizers hope to fund the build through donations. One anonymous donor has already given $5,000 for the project. The idea for the display was proposed by the Cleveland based Siegel and Shuster Society.
