In 1972 the Illinois house of representatives declared Metropolis the official home of Superman. In the town square there stands a 12 foot tall reminder of that uniquely heroic icon. Put up in 1993 and cast from solid bronze it was replacing an earlier one that was made of fiberglass (And apparently full of bullet holes). At the bottom of the statue is the motto for which this hero is best remembered. Truth-Justice-and the American Way.
Just two blocks down from the Man of Steel is a smaller statue of his main squeeze in life, intrepid reporter Lois Lane. Also cast in bronze, it captures her in the process of writing down a tidbit of juicy information, probably for some blockbuster article she's working on.
