Cleveland Getting Ready for Superman Celebration reports that Cleveland, Ohio is moving forward with plans to celebrate the birthplace of Superman during his 70th anniversary.

Work on Cleveland’s “Summer of Superman” celebration is moving quickly with a series of Superman events.

It’s sill way too early to talk about actual events, since planning is just getting underway. But here’s what is shaping up:

A local promoter is organizing a Superman-themed, comic convention for Sunday, May 11.

Another promoter, Jim Hambrick, owner of the Superman museum in Metropolis, Ill., and organizer of that city’s annual Superman event, is anxious to bring his expertise to Cleveland. He’s also offered to bring a massive Superman display to Cleveland. Local Superman memorabilia collector, Jamie Reigle, is on the committee and will add some of his ultra-rare collectibles to the display. Now we just have to find a temporary site with a good location and security to exhibit the joint display.

There are several events already in place that will dovetail nicely into the Summer of Superman. Terry Stewart, president of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (and former president of Marvel Comics) has agreed to get on board and help out.

Representatives of Cleveland area schools and libraries want to hold Superman-related events.
