Iconic ‘Adventures Of Superman’ Suit Flies Into Ohio


The suit worn by George Reeves in the 1950’s TV series The Adventures of Superman will go on display on Thursday at the Ohio History Center.

The iconic outfit is on a special loan from the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.  The super suit was worn by Reeves, who portrayed mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and his heroic alter ego, Superman from 1952 to 1958.

It is first time ever the suit has appeared in the Buckeye State.  It will be on display until January.

Meanwhile, other 1950’s pop culture items like comic books, records and radios will also be on display in the History Center’s exhibit 1950s: Building the American Dream.

The Ohio History Center on 800 E. 17th Avenue is open Wednesday–Saturday 10 a.m.–5 p.m. and Sunday Noon–5 p.m.
