Superman license plates available for Ohio drivers

CLEVELAND (AP) — Ohio fans of the Man of Steel now officially can have the Superman logo on their wheels.

The Ohio license plate with the iconic "S'' insignia went on sale Monday. It features the phrase "Truth, Justice and the American Way."

The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/16ObUnA ) reports relatives of Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were on hand for the plate's unveiling outside the Cleveland-area home where Siegel lived.

The plates cost $20, plus the standard registration fee of $34.50 or the typical $16.25 in fees to replace existing plates. Part of the fee goes to the Siegel and Shuster Society.

A letter read from Siegel's daughter at the unveiling says the men who created the comic superhero as teenagers in the 1930s would've been "absolutely thrilled" about the new plates.
