CLEVELAND, Oct. 8 (UPI) -- An Ohio lawmaker and relatives of Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster unveiled a new state license plate bearing the super hero's image.

State Rep. Bill Patmon stood outside the Cleveland home Monday where Superman was created more than 75 years ago and unveiled the new license plate, alongside family members of the creators and members of the board of directors of the Siegel and Shuster Society, The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer reported Tuesday.

The plates officially became available Monday.

Society President Michael Olszewski read a letter at Monday's ceremony from Jerry Siegel's daughter, Laura Siegel Larson.

"My father, his artist/collaborator Joe Shuster, and my mother would have been absolutely thrilled about this," Siegel Larson wrote. "I can just imagine them driving around Cleveland and excitedly pointing out the plates as they spotted them."
