Ohio changes planned Superman license plate design

CLEVELAND (AP) - Plans for a Superman license plate in Ohio are being altered because the slogan doesn't match the origin story for the Man of Steel.

The story says he was born on the planet Krypton, but fans of the comic superhero know he was created by two teenagers near Cleveland in the 1930s. A nonprofit society honoring those creators proposed a license plate with the famous "S'' insignia and the slogan "Ohio - Birthplace of Superman."

The Plain Dealer in Cleveland (http://bit.ly/M0kMu5 ) reports DC Comics and Warner Communications were concerned about the birthplace reference, so officials plan to come up with a different slogan.

The sponsor of the license plate bill says he hopes it's passed quickly to make the Superman plates available for the 75th anniversary next year.
