    CLEVELAND, OH (CNN) -- A state license plate that boasts the birthplace of aviation now also boasts a superhero who can fly.

    State representative Bill Patmon announced the release of Ohio's new Superman license plate this week during a special event at the childhood home of Jerry Siegel, co-creator of superman.

    A group of fans in Ohio has been campaigning to get the license plate approved for years.

    Patmon says it could even be a draw for people to move to ohio. He says, "The Superman followers and fans -- they want these plates, even though they're not Ohioans. I say come to Ohio. Get you a Superman plate."

    Siegel and his friend, Joe Schuster, lived in Ohio as teenagers when they created superman, 80 years ago and eventually selling the superhero to what would later become DC comics.
