Superman comic brings The Man of Steel to Philly

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — One of America's most enduring superheroes has begun a cross-country trek in Philadelphia.

In the pages of DC Comics' latest issue of Superman, which hit stands Wednesday, the Man of Steel embarks on a yearlong journey on foot from the City of Brotherly Love.

For all his powers, though, he still needs a lesson in geography.

The 500 block of South 48th Street is described as the city's "South Side." It's actually the University City section of west Philadelphia.

The flub has generated some good-natured ribbing from locals, and DC Comics co-publisher Dan DiDio says that's OK. He says that means people are reading the comic and there's a sense of area pride.

Superman travels to Detroit for the second installment of the 12-issue "Grounded" series.
