Art Notes

Under the ever-vigilant protection of Superman, Metropolis is a gleaming urban center, a melting pot of peoples and cultures, and an iconic city that is a beacon of hope. Coined as “The City of Tomorrow” it is a global center for commerce, industry, and culture – making it an irresistible target for common criminals, Super-Villains and otherworldly aliens alike.

Superman Protector of Metropolis is a symbol of American opportunity and values. One of the hallmarks of America is that people can reach their full potential when allowed the freedom to do so. Superman embodies this ideal since as a “superhuman” he chooses to help and protect rather than conquer and enslave.

Join us as we peer into this Kinkadian scene, set atop of DC Comics’ most legendary city. At the break of dawn, the Man of Steel is poised and ready to protect his adopted hometown and the planet from anything and anyone that threatens its safety.
