Superman Statue - Leaping

Superman stands in downtown Metropolis Illinois. The town has adopted him and has several Superman and comic related events every year. There is a Superman Museum and the Americana Museum in town. Great place to visit!

Stopped in on the way from Nashville to St Louis. Everything was still in fine shape and the town was nice. Very helpful staff at the gift store nearby.
