GuyverDH writes: DC Comics has refused to allow the Superman logo to be used on a memorial for a 5 year old child, Jeffrey Baldwin, that was starved to death by his grandparents. Jeffrey Baldwin was a huge fan of anything Superman, and when the story came out about the circumstances of his murder, the community wanted to do something for him. They raised funds to create a memorial statue with the Kryptonian S on the chest. The latest incarnation of the Superman saga, Man of Steel, tells us that it's not an S, but a symbol for "Hope". What better use for the symbol of hope, than on a memorial to a murdered child, in hopes that nothing like this happens again. DC Comics doesn't feel that way, perhaps they don't feel at all. They implied that it would put a stain or stigma on their trademark to allow it to be used for his memorial because of the conditions surrounding his death. If Superman were real, he would have stood up for Jeffrey, maybe even prevented his death. At the very least he certainly would have been the first one there to carve his symbol on the memorial himself with his heat vision.
