Metropolis, Illinois - Man Of Steel Joined By Woman Of Bronze
Nine-Foot-Tall Lois Lane:

Metropolis, Illinois, was officially declared "Hometown of Superman" by DC Comics in 1972. But it wasn't until 1993 that the town replaced a shrimpy, homely statue with a decent, 15-foot-tall heroic Superman. Now, 17 years later, Superman has been joined by a slightly less supersized Lois Lane.

Bronze Lois Lane

Lois Lane is as adorable as ever. The 20-percent-larger-than-life bronze statue of actress Noel Neill as Lois Lane in the 1950s has been standing out in the elements for 10 years, patiently waiting to jot down notes for a breaking news story for the Daily Planet, and still looks great!
