CLEVELAND (AP) — Ohio fans of the Man of Steel now officially can have the Superman logo on their wheels.

A license plate with the iconic "S'' insignia went on sale Monday. It features the phrase "Truth, Justice and the American Way."

The Plain Dealer (http://bit.ly/16ObUnA ) reports relatives of Superman creators Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were on hand for the plate's unveiling outside the Cleveland-area home where Siegel lived.

The plates cost $20, plus the standard registration fee of $34.50 or the typical $16.25 in fees to replace existing plates. Part of the fee goes to the Siegel and Shuster Society, which commemorates the men's work.

A letter by Siegel's daughter read at the unveiling says the men who created the comic superhero as teenagers in the 1930s would've been "absolutely thrilled" about the plates.
