"Metropolis - Superman's Hometown! :-)" Metropolis by rmdw

Metropolis Travel Guide: 17 reviews and 30 photos

Metropolis was founded in 1839, apparently given this name way back then. In 1972 a fellow named Robert Westerfield campaigned to associate the town with the lore of Superman.

Throughout the town now are all sorts of Superman memorabilia.

The Superman story was created in the 1930's by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster (originally a Canadian!), two childhood friends from Cleveland, Ohio.
