DC Comics Objects To Ohio's Superman License Plate

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Linda Wertheimer. Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive and not born in Ohio. The idea of Superman was conceived in Glenville, Ohio back in the 1930s, but when a proposed Superman-themed license plate called Ohio birthplace of Superman, DC Comics and Warner Communications objected. Superman, they point out, was born on the planet Krypton. It's MORNING EDITION.
[POST-BROADCAST CLARIFICATION: Glenville is a neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio, not an independent municipality.] Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
