State of Ohio seeks to honor Superman creators with official license plate
If you live in Ohio and are fan of the world’s oldest boyscout, then you’re in for a treat as the state seeks to honor Superman’s creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Superman who was created by Siegel and Shuster in the 1930’s and published in 1938, has become world famous for his fictional exploits and his unyielding commitment to truth and justice for all. The Siegel and Shuster Society, a group dedicated to preserving and honoring the work of the duo, began a petition in 2011 with the hopes that the State of Ohio would see the historical significance of Superman’s contributions and agree to honor not only the creators but the character as well.
Their wish so far has come true, as H.B. 339 was introduced in Ohio and has so far passed committee without issue and is currently winding its way through the state’s government. State Rep. Bill Patmon (D-Cleveland) said in a statement, “This legislation is, and always has been, about heroism, support, strength and caring for our fellow man, woman or child.” The new license plate once approved, is expected to cost between $25 and $35 above the normal license plate fees.
