Metropolis Illinois: Home of Superman

Everyone knows Metropolis is the hometown of Superman.  Some may think that Metropolis is a fictitious city, but I know it’s real.  I’ve been there.  And signs of Superman are everywhere.  A 15-foot tall bronze statue of Superman stands in Superman Square.

Clark Kent’s office is in the museum, too


I wonder why his office is in the museum instead of in the newspaper, The Planet?


I saw Noel Neil, aka Lois Lane, too, in statue form.


Beware of the chunk of kryptonite that has fallen to Earth. So far, it hasn’t seemed to bother Superman. Hopefully, he won’t come in contact with it anytime soon.


Just try to tell me that Metropolis, Illinois, isn’t really Superman’s home.
