    Well… I like Superman too, but couldn’t that $110,000 have done some serious good somewhere else? I think Superman himself would have used it to help people in need. Just my opinion.

    Superman himself isn’t a real person. I think it’s really cool they they have turned the house into a living memory and a plaque. I believe their efforts were very valuable to the comic community and also to the general public.

    They did a fantastic thing, good on them.

    And to say the money could be spent elsewhere… Well, shit; lets just pour the entire world wealth into funding AIDs and Cancer cures and vaccinations. It would be nice, but it just doesn’t work like that. Even “Superman himself” knows that.

    They did do “some serious good”. They restored a dilapidated house that a family was living in as well memorialize one of the most recognizable fictional characters in the world.
    Here is a link with a little bit of information regarding the owners of the house.
