Superman Statue to Finally be Erected in Cleveland

Statues depicting Superman and his creators are moving closer to reality in the character’s place of creation of Cleveland, Ohio.

Members of the Siegel & Shuster Society, a nonprofit organization, announced in a panel at Fan Expo Cleveland on Saturday, April 13 that they’ve been making progress in getting approvals for statues honoring the Man of Steel, writer Jerry Siegel, artist Joe Shuster, and original Lois Lane model Joanne Siegel.

The panel included Gary S. Kaplan, a cousin to Jerry Siegel, Leigh Goldie, a cousin to Joe Shuster, Pernel Jones, Jr., president of Cuyahoga County Council, and society founding members Mike Sangiacomo, Jamie Reigle and Brad Ricca.

The plan is to erect the statues on the grounds of the Huntington Convention Center in downtown Cleveland in 2025.

In a subsequent post on Facebook, the Siegel & Shuster Society stated, “We have the support of the Cuyahoga County Council, the Convention Center Board and DC Comics/Warner Brothers. We still have a few more steps to take before 100% approval, but we are getting very close.”
