Superman Fan Starts Campaign To Get His Hometown Renamed To SMALLVILLE
A Superman fan who lives in Hutchinson, Kansas has started a campaign in hope his hometown would get renamed Smallville, because of all the similarities to the source material, as well as helping the community. Check it out...
Christopher Wietrick, who is a big Superman fan and a comic book artist, has decided to start a campaign so his town would get a new name: Smallville. He lives in Hutchinson, Kansas and by doing this, he also wants to help the community. It's interesting that the town already has a Superman costume in a museum, then there are roads named "Clark" and "Kent," and some other similarities which you can see in the video by clicking HERE.
Wietrick also launched a Facebook page, and this is what he had to say:
"We believe that the city of Hutchinson has enough in common with the fictitious town of "Smallville, KS" to warrant the changing of our lovely hometown's name. Our hometown has several tourist attractions already. We would love to see that increase by a great amount and we strongly believe that (should this happen) it would be a huge economic boost to the city, county and area. Our goal is for Warner Brothers and DC Comics to recognize Hutchinson as the REAL Smallville. We believe that no town in America has a better argument for the title."
