Eddie jumped tall buildings (in a single bound) to the top of my list of “way-cool people to know” when he shared his recent pics of the 15 foot tall Superman statue in Metropolis, Illinois!
You may be familiar with a heavily circulated 2006 photo of our current Commander-In-Chief (when he was an Illinois Senator) that featured the Superman statue as a backdrop.
Metropolis fully embraces its vision of itself as the hometown of one of America’s most famous men in tights. The town features a number of “Superman-themed” businesses, is home to a Superman Museum, and even holds an annual Superman Fan Gathering. (see links at the end of the post for more info)
