CLEVELAND -- A permanent exhibit paying tribute to Superman opened at the airport in Cleveland -- the city where the "Man of Steel" was created.
Relatives of Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport Thursday night for the opening of the exhibit.
The Superman exhibit was put together by the Siegel and Shuster Society, a group formed to honor the boys who created a worldwide cultural icon in the midst of the Great Depression. Superman fans contributed about $50,000 for the exhibit.
Next summer marks 75 years since Superman first appeared in "Action Comics" No. 1, heralding a worldwide comic book industry. A near perfect copy of that 10 cent comic sold last year for $2.1 million.
