Superman: Grounded Contest - Have the Man of Steel Visit Your City

Superman: Grounded Contest - Have the Man of Steel Visit Your City
To coincide with the Superman: Grounded storyline and the 700th issue of Superman, DC is launching a contest that can bring America itself right into the storyline.
Beginning with the city of Philadelphia, Superman will walk across America, a journey that is expected to take most of a year. He will pass through Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon and Washington. Along the way, Superman will be passing through real towns, real cities, real neighborhoods. And your town, your city, your neighborhood may be among those chosen for his historic journey. Superman will literally pass through your town as visualized in the pages of his book.

If your town is within 50 miles of the line marking Superman’s journey, then you are eligible to participate.

If your town is chosen, then it will become part of an issue of the Superman comic. For over seventy years, Superman has been America’s greatest hero, and now he is returning to those roots. The series of issues will examine how Superman sees America, and how America sees Superman. And for those towns selected, it will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of his historic journey.
