You will find the Man of Steel if you happen to be driving through Metropolis, Illinois. And yes, there really is a Metropolis.

Metropolis, Illinois, located at Exit 37 on Interstate 24 at the southernmost tip of Illinois, is the official Home of Superman and proudly honors its favorite son with a 15-foot bronze statue of America’s Super Hero right in the middle of Superman Square.

And now, a new statue of actress Noel Neil, posed as Lois Lane, stands just two blocks down the street.
