Did you know Superman was actually co-created by a Canadian?

In 1933 … (along with his high school friend – Jerry Siegel) … Joe Shuster (a Toronto-born artist) created the character, in Cleveland, Ohio.

Other Canadian connections to the Superman empire include the premise that the Daily Planet was based on the Toronto Star … and the city of Metropolis was inspired by Toronto’s skyline.

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Well, not much really.
