This year was the 40th annual Superman Celebration held in the City of Metropolis in Illinois. This happened to also be the eightieth anniversary year for Superman himself.
This started as a small one-day community event and has since grown into a four-day celebration of the iconic comic book hero. Fans come from across the globe to celebrate their favorite Man of Steel.
This was a stellar opportunity for fans to meet Superman-related celebrities, authors, and artists. It was also a chance to see fan-made Superman paraphernalia and get up close and personal with many props actually used in many of the film and TV productions. This year’s celebrity guests included Brandon Routh, “Superman” from Superman Returns and from the TV series “Krypton,” Shaun Sipos (Adam Strange) and Blake Ritson (Braniac.)
