Metropolis, Illinois, officially known as the Home of Superman, kicks off its 31st annual Superman Celebration today, Thursday, with festivities continuing through Sunday.
There are planned activities for all ages, including a carnival, kid’s karaoke, Superman costume contests for kids and adults, and guests from both the television and comics world. Plus, everyone has a chance to become an honorary citizen of Metropolis on Saturday.
Even Batman makes an appearance of sorts, in the form of the 1966 Batmobile.
Television guests include Noel Neill from the old Superman television show, Justin Hartley and Phil Morris of Smallville, while a full artist’s alley for comic readers will feature writers Gail Simone (Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey, and Action Comics), John Ostrander (Suicide Squad) and Mike Norton (Green Arros, Black Canary).
