Report: Comic giant won’t allow Superman logo on child’s memorial
TORONTO — DC Entertainment reportedly won’t allow the Superman logo to be part of a statue in memory of a young fan who was starved to death.
According to CBC News, Jeffrey Baldwin of Toronto died in 2002, just weeks shy of his sixth birthday.
During a coroner’s inquest earlier this year, a man named Todd Boyce was moved by the story and the boy’s love for the superhero.
Boyce raised money to create a statue of the boy in a superman costume, but DC Entertainment won’t give permission for the iconic ‘S’ logo to be used on the statue, CBC News reported.
DC Entertainment would not comment, CBC News said.
A ‘J’ will be used on the statue instead, and the unveiling and dedication is slated for September.
