Cleveland Announces 'Superman Day' For April 18

Posted By on Thu, Apr 11, 2013 at 2:02 PM

With the 75th anniversary of everyone's most people's some people's favorite superhero, Mayor Frank Jackson officially dubbed April 18 "Superman Day." He'll make a big statement at 1 p.m. that day.


The announcement a) pays homage to one of Cleveland's more treasured contributions to pop culture and b) gives The Plain Dealer something to do in the coming days.

Superman is rad, of course, but we're wondering: What other Cleveland-born characters deserve a day of recognition? What are your favorites?
