A Superman Giant

No, I don’t mean the Superman Annuals or the 80 Page Giant series. I’m on vacation and passed through Metropolis this morning. That’s Illinois, home to the giant Superman statue on the town square. Now if only I could find Gotham and the giant Batman statue!

    Obama posed in front of that statue and gave a flex while campaigning in 2008. I didn’t vote for the guy, but it was definitely a moment where I got a little more comfortable with the idea of him running the country.

    BTW, there is a Gotham, Wisconsin, but it looks like a one-stop-light farming town.

  2. The statue is even more impressive up close. I went to the Superman Celebration last year and it was like a rite of passage a Superman should go through.

    BTW, there is a Bat Cave, North Carolina. No idea if any millionaire playboys living there.
