Superman Christmas tree to light up Cleveland airport

CLEVELAND — The Christmas trimmings at Cleveland’s main airport will include a celebration of the city’s connection to Superman.

A group promoting Cleveland as the Man of Steel’s birthplace will put up a Christmas tree decorated with Superman action figures and other memorabilia at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.

The Siegel and Shuster Society also has a design firm working on a permanent Superman display to greet travelers at Hopkins. The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reports one idea is for a huge Superman statue at the airport.

High school classmates Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster first came up with the idea for the superhero at the Siegel family’s Cleveland home in 1933.
