CLEVELAND — “Truth, justice and the American way” was evident at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport beginning on Thursday.

The Superman Exhibit was unveiled in the baggage claim level near carousel 10. 

Superman originated on the east side of Cleveland back in 1933 by two Glenville boys. 

Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster created the “Man of Steel” during the Great Depression.

The exhibit features a 7-foot-tall statue standing in front of a wall with Cleveland points of interest in classical comic-style conversation. 

The display is meant to educate visitors about Superman’s origins and pay tribute to the DC Comic book character creators, Siegel and Shuster.

Mayor Frank Jackson, family members of Siegel and Shuster and the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra were all expected to attend the exhibit’s unveiling.
