Christopher Wietrick, who’s a huge Superman fan, has set out on a task to rename his hometown of Hutchinson Kansas to “Smallville.” Smallville is the childhood hometown of Superman in comic books published by DC Comics. Wietrick argues that Hutchinson has a lot in common with the place the Kents raised The Man of Steel.
“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.”
So what do you think? Good idea of to much time on his hands?
